You could allocate your spells.h defines so all the fire spells were
35-75, ice spells 76-100 or something to that effect. Then have some other
defines so it would know the range of our various spells.

Or (I just had another idea) you could put a new element on the spells.
Then you could bit vector the type of spell (fire, ice, elec, magic).
