Why does it need to be a two dimensional array?  Besides, that'd limit
it by size, something you probably don't want if you want higher
"level" people able to memorize more spells than lower level people.
You want it dynamic, so I would suggest either using a dynamic array,
or a linked list.  If you're just storing the spell number of the
memorized spell, then it's as simple as an "int *memorized;" CREATE'd
and RECREATE'd as necessary.
