        Well I thought about this somewhat, and decided to leave it out
since it's more of an informative function.  I could have simply exited,
or gossip'd something about killing someone, now where's that torch...I'll
proabably keep it this way however.

        Aha!  I was just in the middle of trying to figure out why the
status bar shows up red after a brag.  Looks like here was the answer.
Thanks much, Dan.

        Also, you'll have to have a default: exit from the function
if you increase the switch above 0-11, to make it every so often.
