Multihit for mobs by Christian Duvall

First i noticed there's a hole in the instructions, ie... you need to add
the appropriate define's to olc.h, but another curious thing is in fight.c
when you add the routine to perform_violence() and compile, first it
grumbles about may not be initialising "ch" then this pretty little
coredump happens:

953       if (IS_NPC(ch)) {

Here's our friendly uninitialized "ch", I added the bit of code as

void perform_violence(void)
  struct char_data *ch;
  extern struct index_data *mob_index;
  int perc, val, apr;

  if (IS_NPC(ch)) {
    perc = number(1, 101);
    val = ch->mob_specials.attack1;
    if (val > perc) {

I have run into this problem before when I did the chown command, and the
solution to the problem was initializing the struct.. the problem appears
to be the exact same here... with the solution directly under my nose..
but i'm not sure what it is.. I'll try things out but I wanted to send
this to the list.
