from structs.h:

room_rnum in_room;              /* Location (real room number) */

 So ch->in_room is a RNUM, if you can't tell from the 2 clues here
and numerous comments through the code.

 If it did work previously the RNUM of room VNUM 12 must have also been
12. For what you're trying to do here you'll need something like this,

 if (ch->in_room != real_room(creation_room[RACE_ROOM])) {
 ... but something tells me you already tried that, and it was WRONG
