Probably only on mobs/pcs that are of lower/equal level (whether it's 
specific or not).

Currently, dispel evil hits the caster if the caster is evil.  I'm not sure
about good (haven't tested this case on the alpha)

Then shouldn't evil against evil gain 100?  I think it'd be a lot more 
effective if we just rewrote the alignment system, rather than putting 
modifiers on spells.  Otherwise, I see lightning bolts and bashes and 
backstabs as needing alignment changes as well.

This is a bit high... clerics don't get damage spells until really high levels,
making them much weaker to play early on.  Earthquake is a pretty wimpy spell.

I'm not so sure about this one... is this suggesting that you have to have
AFF_GROUP, and be in the same group?  If not, I see some real abuse.

> 24 Negate Sanct

As was discussed earlier, I think this is a bad idea.  If a mob has sanc, it's
probably for a good reason.

By looking at the list, I see some duplications (locate object and infravision
for example)  I'm not sure how good of an idea this is...
