in limits.c, function gain_exp(), remove that code following.
then MOBs can gain a exp, and if they have enough exp, can gain a level.

void gain_exp(struct char_data * ch, int gain)
  int is_altered = FALSE;
  int num_levels = 0;
  char buf[128];

  if (!IS_NPC(ch) && ((GET_LEVEL(ch) < 1 || GET_LEVEL(ch) >= LVL_IMMORT)))

  if (IS_NPC(ch)) {         |
    GET_EXP(ch) += gain;    |
    return;                 |-- remove this.
  }                         |

  if (gain > 0) {
    gain = MIN(max_exp_gain, gain);     /* put a cap on the max gain per
kill */
    GET_EXP(ch) += gain;
    while (GET_LEVEL(ch) < LVL_IMMORT &&

I also added new MOB action-bitvector "AGGR_NPC" which try to kill mob in his
room on my MUD .(but source not complete) Theres some condition for
aggressive-action. - MOB(attacker)'s HP must be at least 80% of MAX_HP of
his own, and the victim(mob)'s level must be lower than attacker.- The MOB,
set only AGGR_NPC, never kills PCs but kills other MOBs. This MOB can
gather exp and advance a new level by himself.

I think it's hard that mob get to train. The mob flag {Normal|Undead} is used
same location with PC's class variable. So Normal MOB is Magician to PC.
I think it must be considered first that MOBs classes.
