* There's error in your explanation: actually all NPC game objects (highlighted red if you've seen DikuMUD/CircleMUD default highlighting) are considered "mobile objects", including shopkeepers or otherwise stationary NPCs. Those that stay in place just have additional flag (STAY_ROOM, IIRC). Even players are special case of "mobile object".
