Which I think is a bad idea, and I took it out. Has anyone ever seen a
player let a mob he can kill relastively easy kill a junk character over and
over and over and over until that mob was worth 10x the exp, then kill it
and fly up 7 levels at once?

Before I took out that code players would feed junk characters to a mob over
and over, jacking the mobs exp up through the roof. Then, they kill it for
massive exp. Highly abuseable code, and not really necessary either.
