It would be a good idea to specify your requirements in speed and
extensibility in advance. In particular, how many simultaneous
players do you plan to support (consider yourself lucky if you get
above 100 nowadays) and which CPU-gobbling features do you plan to
implement. Furthermore, what do you mean by 'extensibility'?

Generally, on the modern hardware, just about -anything- will do for
up to 100 players and 1 sec combat tic, speedwise. Even Emacs
LISP. ;)

Also, keep in mind that there are not many advantages in
implementing the entire system in a single language.
