I'd advise putting them in hit() in fight.c, but instead of actually 
affecting the statistics of the person fighting, just affect the things 
in combat that these statistics affect.  Hmm.  That wasn't all that 
clear.  Let me explain further :

after the line in hit() that says 

calc_thaco -= (int) ((GET_WIS(ch) - 13) / 1.5);

  calc_thaco -= 4;

after the line in hit() that says

 victim_ac += dex_app[GET_DEX(victim)].defensive;

  victim_ac -= 4;  // (40 / 10)

This way, the change for the skill only happens when it _needs_ to 
happen.  Putting it at the beginning of combat/end of combat might cause 
wierd things to happen when someone is teleported out of combat, when 
their blindness runs out during combat, etc.  *shrug*  This seems to be a 
better way.
