Ported Introduction code.

Heh, here's my problem.  I ported the introduction code for ROM by Gary
McNickle, as I've done before and it worked fine.  I'm using ASCII pfiles,
so it's not a problem allocating space (I use an int *known in
player_special_data).  Anyway, now perform_act() crashes for some strange
reason (it worked before !).    I've included a ton of GDB info because it's
so strange.  The only other thing I've changed is I added some new strings
to char_data, but they are very short, and again shouldn't affect this area.

If you have any ideas, let me know.  Also, can somebody clue me in on the
proper use of the RECREATE() macro for this?  For example, I do this:

   RECREATE(ch->player_specials->saved.known, int *,
sizeof(ch->player_specials->saved.known) + 1);
   KNOWN(ch, (sizeof(ch->player_specials->saved.known)/sizeof(int))) =
idnum;

My goal is to add another integer slot into the known array, then fill the
spot with the variable idnum.  Anyway, let me know if you can help, again,
this is very strange.

-k.
