Learn it and use it.

Since Midgaard is zone 30 'out of the box', I'd do:
grep 30 *.c *.h -n | less

Of course, you'll end up with a few more lines of code out of grep than
you will want to change, but you can use the ~8 lbs. of flesh between
your ears and figure out what to and what not to change.

Since you know that you need to change guildmasters, start rooms, and
guilds, try a more intuitive grep like:

grep guild *.c *.h -ni | less
grep start *.c *.h -ni | less

If you don't know about grep or less start with:
man grep
man less

If you don't know about man type:
man man

If you don't know how to type:
jump off a tall building and flap your arms. :)
