If a special proc returns zero then the command interpreter keeps
looking for matches. With stock circle you can have a special
proc associated with a room, a mob, or an item. What you're looking
for is essentially a list of special procs you can associate with
a single player. A linked list or an array of pointers that you
resize when needed would work nicely. Just modify the char_data
structure, add a function for adding and removing special procs
from a character, and edit the special() function.
