Well, the easiest way is this SET_AFF and REMOVE_AFF thing.. or whatever
it's called in circle. I don't think the spells/skills currently check for
any of this stuff, but there is something in the spell_affect thing when
casting spells on mobs that does a check for sancted mobs and stuff... You
might want to check into this (just something I thought about while
writing the message *g*).

Well, I made a function thats called somewhere inside the affect routines
to supposr affections on races. This is called everytime a player/char is
affected, and though keep the affects 'right'. I.e. if a spell wears off,
liek sanct, and a race has sanct, it removes the sanct per code because of
the spell, but before returning from the unaffect routines, it calls the
race affect code, and sets the race affect SANCT again. Thats a hacker way
of doing it, but it works :)
