> Is there some reason why I shouldn't set any of the THAC0 values to "0"?

	Yes there is. The lower the thaco value, the better it is to hit a mob. 0
is the lowest there is. This means, when a die is rolled (d20) anything
UNDER your thaco value is considered a MISS [for armour class of zero, that
is], so if you have a thaco of 15, then it means you require a 15-20 on a
d20 roll to hit a mob with ac of 0. remember, though, that newbies have
HIGH (bad) thaco (ie. level 1 is around thaco 19), but then again, the mobs
they are trying to kill have crap armour, so it all balances out. This
ensures that level 1 newbies don't go and kill a dragon or whatever at
level 1. It's also realistic - with battle and adventuring experience, the
new *character* will soon grow in knowledge and combat prowess .. etc etc
etc. ..

i think you get the drift.
