specials have a built-in, easy to use way to determine themselves, just
define a var like this...

struct char_data *spoof = me;

and every reference inside of the special to spoof will point to the mob
which the special is attached to.  Its much safer than using "ch" which
almost always points to the person who typed something. You can also use 
"me" with objects in the same way (struct obj_data *sword = me;) and 
probably rooms as well, but I have yet to find any use for room specials
so I havnt checked...

BTW, this is unused---^^^^, but thats unrelated to your question ;-)
