I realize there are different parts to this: (1) client, protocol, users/authentication, and many other "administrative" functions that are not the actual game; and (2) game-specific functionality on both the client and the server.

I modified the SillyMUD codebase (in C) to use the C CloudI API (http://cloudi.org) in the repository https://github.com/okeuday/sillymud .  CloudI already has Erlang services for various databases, OAuth v1, HTTP servers, and socket handling but it would be mainly for making sure game services are fault-tolerant (especially if you are using non-Erlang programming languages).
