I see, just as I thought..  It would seem that the whole struct char_data 
* mob is a pointer pointing to mob_proto[x].  If this is so, then why 
when you change the integers, all of the mobs don't change if mob is a 
pointer itself?.

I could easily create a new mob proto and add it to the list each time I 
created a new online mob, however thats the easy and sloppy way out.  If 
I'm not mistaken, Original Diku code does not use prototypes and point to 
them, they have a totally new struct for each mob (don't mark me correct 
on this though).

Hey JE, any suggestions?
