The above mentioned skillo() call in spell_parser does nothing for skills
as the comments in the code suggest, exept to give that skill to the
IMMORTS by default.

Two things come to mind.
 A line such as the above for your skill, giving that skill to a class

  char *spells[] = 
  "magic missile",

 A Line such as above, with the exact spelling of what the user is supposed
 to type to practice and/or cast this spell, irregardless of whats
 SPELL_XXX name may be.
