I dont think the issue is the changing of spells, I think the issue at hand
is the fact that clerics on that mud are earthquakers. If they dont have
earthquake they are useless? I think that mud has got more problems than
just some spell changing problems, how about some game balance where if a
cleric loses a spell the whole class dfoesnt go to shit
