The second thing damage() does is:

  /* peaceful rooms */
  if (ch != victim && ROOM_FLAGGED(ch->in_room, ROOM_PEACEFUL)) {
    send_to_char("This room just has such a peaceful, easy feeling...\r\n",ch);
    return 0;


  /* shopkeeper protection */
  if (!ok_damage_shopkeeper(ch, victim))
    return 0;


  /* You can't damage an immortal! */
  if (!IS_NPC(victim) && (GET_LEVEL(victim) >= LVL_IMMORT))
    dam = 0;

So it's impossible to make anything sit in a peaceful room. Or a shopkeeper
sit anywhere, or an immortal, sit etc. So if you do 0 damage to anything,
bash won't work either.
