That's strange, in standard circle3pb8, Greyfox and I were able to do
stuff like that... ah, it was set.  What you have to do is set <char>
level <whatever you want>.  This, I believe was a bug, so I fixed it so
that people can't set others above their own level, nor set someone who's
the same level... ie: Greyfox had an alias to: set strom level 33, force
$*, set strom level 34    Quite a fun macro... until we realized... if
some silly 34 accidentally set $mself to lv 1, and that was the only
lv 34 on the mud, it'd be a BAD thing(tm)...
Should be in the FAQ to check for this loophole and fix it in some way
or another.
