It really can't be done.  You can't make anything more powerful
than a wizard... a wizard-owned verb can change any variable,
shut down the database, turn player and wizard flags on and off...

On Id ( we have a rather nifty variable
permissioning system so that we can enable some verbs or groups
of verbs for some players in some areas of the MOO.  This lets
you create subwizards with limited powers -- we call 'em monarchs.
Perhaps that's more what you want -- a few real wizards and a lot
of monarch...
