(I suppose this should be sent directly to Jonathan Dubman who asked
the question, but my mailer would not accept his monstrous address...)

Jonathan had problems with allowing his objects to refer to themselves.
His objects are defined by lambda expressions, so I can't think of any
reason why the following would not work:

(define (make-player ...)
    ((self (lambda (...)   <body of player>)))

or something like it.  In <body of player> you can use  self
to denote *this* player, like in

(present-room 'move self 'north)
