First off I would like to say hello (again) to everyone -- it was a
productive summer for me and I am now back (like it or not)...

Now, to address this question... STR_ADD is an extra strength stat that is
used for fighters ... Normally, a non-fighter can only have a strength of
18, but the STR_ADD allows fighter stats to surpass a normal 18.. The
random 0-100 number determines what the "additional" strength is, ie, what
extra bonuses the fighter gets.  Check out limits.c (god it's been so
long.. I forget where everything is in the code.. :P ) for what these
bonuses are..
