There's an impossibility of being a top level mage and cleric and warrior.
They continue at their current level, so it's best to pick a class and
stick with it, or you'll never reach the top level spells and skills.

For example
1 cleric lv. 1
2 cleric lv. 2
3 --------> thief lv. 1
4           thief lv. 2

They only get the cleric skills up to the level at which they leave the
guild.  So actually, on a 50 level MUD, somebody who switches classes at
level 25 will only be able to get 25 levels of the first class, and 25
levels of the second.

Anyway, after my little rebuttal, I got a question.  How would I make it
so that when you join a guild, you join the guild of that which you are
in?  The only thing I can think of is a room flag

  yadda yadda yadda
else if ...
