The formula I use for the exp table is..
#include <math.h>
extern double log(x as double);

The problem is that all of the mob files must have their Exp adjusted 
to match.

also I had to manually put the table in because linux's log function 
is broken :(

I think I may add the class/race modifiers to the formula as well.
If I can fix the log();
