Might I suggest checking out Moebius?

Features:

	* Written in Python: almost everything is runtime-modifiable.
	* SQL database backend.
	* Very dynamic: both data and code come from the database.
	* No save/load issues.
	* Fault-tolerant: nearly everything wrapped in try...except statements.
	* Generic: add anything you want in the Python layer.
	* Threaded.
	* Player scripting in Python.
