Re: [code] limit on xp gain?

If you look at the gain_exp functions, the base experience for the mob is
/3, (hence your 166666).  We went to a GET_LEVEL(vict)/GET_LEVEL(killer)
for our base, and changed the single kill to /2, while the group exp is
/1+members in group.  

Maybe it was because i was less code literate than I am now, but the only
way I was able to figure out that exp code in fight.c (and limits.c) was
to print most of it out and trace the flow by hand.  We have also added in
exp caps for races, extra exp for larger groups, and max exp per kill
limited to 20% of the max needed for that level.  Our next step is to take
the # of levels in a group, and divide/assign the exp that way.
