                     ^ Here's your problem.

TO_ROOM excludes the originator and victim.  Since you're passing it an
originator, that person won't see the messages.  If you change all the
ch's in the act functions to 0, you'll start seeing them.

Also, I think you need an if(cmd) return(0) in the beginning.
