ok... 
1) set the correct level in the SPELLO()
2) make sure there are no class checks in the spells/skills
3) make sure there are no class checks in the gain routines
4) sit down with a copy of the code and really read the darned thing.

To all those that reply to any mesg and also send it to the group, please
don't forget to remove the sender's name from the CC:  I know you can user
your email.

The purpose of this document is to record some of our knowledge, experience
and
philosophy.  No matter what your level, we hope that this document will
help
you become a better software engineer.

Remember that engineering is work, and NO document will substitute for your
own thinking, learning and experimentation.

=== How to Learn in the First Place

(1) Play with something.
(2) Read the documentation on it. 
(3) Play with it some more.
(4) Read documentation again.
(5) Play with it some more.
(6) Read documentation again.
(7) Play with it some more.
(8) Read documentation again.
(9) Get the idea?

in this case... the code is the documentation...
i.e. read the code, it is the best way to learn the code.
