Well would you look at that...  It turns out the amount of exp needed
became so large it became negative.  That is most likely why I had the
probably.  I also noticed that it took a very long time to get enough exp
to level.  Which I guess is ok when you have around 30 levels but when you
get to around 70 levels it becomes insanely difficult to get to a high
level.  I played as a mortal with a friend of mine and the two of us went
around for an hour (maybe longer) and I wasn't able to come close to
advancing past the first level.  After all the tampering I have done with
the exp I apparently threw balance out the window.  One of the many reason
I have for delaying the debut of my MUD.

Just another one of those "Just so you would ask that question" kinda
things?  I'm guessing this matter has been poked at a bit in bpl12.(?)
