Nothing, now.  Not to suggest that it will ever be used, but it might
have been at one point in time.  In any case, a 'punch' skill is
illogical, and really confusing, since most people will think it is
a social (right now, I believe it is).

-+25 is max for NPC and 18 is max for player. (am I right?)

I think the main stuff lies in limits.c, modify.c (maybe), class.c,
and constants.c

-+Another thing that puzzled me is STR_ADD.
-+As far as I understood, it shows how much weight

-+STR/2 instead of STR_ADD to determine max wieldable

No, strength add is an addition to the normal strength range so that
warriors can be stronger than other classes.  It is a bonus.

-+If player's STR is 18, then STR_ADD is random number from 0 to 100.
-+What's this line for?

It gives a warrior with 18 strength a random bonus between 0 and 100.
