Regarding all this ROOM_TUNNEL stuff, I think it may be worth working on 
a skill called BLOCK_EXIT that you can give a fighter class person who is 
guarding an entrance or exit.

You could also use it in ROOM_TUNNEL, and define BLOCK_EXIT as the 
direction you came from, so if you run into a monster in an east-west 
passage, he's blocking further progress west, and you're blocking further 
progress east.  For one to proceed, the other must die (or some wimp 
could run...)

Justa thot
