Either put an extra value in the obj file to hold a clas slaying flag
(#define OGRE_SLAYING 0 etc) or put a flag in. (ITEM_OGRE_SLAYER) that
you check for in do_hit in fight.c

I am just putting the thoughts together to do this on my mud.  The part
I am wrestling with is the best way/place to put mobclass specific actions
in. like mobs backstabbing to attack, or healing themslves etc.

Has anyone done this that would like to offer some tips or what to avoid?

I am not looking for code just maybe a tip on where to start, it will
be all over I am sure, because it is a very all encompassing thing, but
the few starts I have made in the distant past have ended up very ugly.

Eek! what a babble.

Thanks for any answers.
