Then maybe it's a glitch in OLC, because If I remove a vnum, it remove the oject, not
the mob.

So mana isn't based on a wis/int combo? After flipping through almost every
concievable source file, I notice that array. ^.^ If I add races, and add or
subtract from the rolled con, will it affect how much hp is given per lvl-up?
Also similar if the pc was carrying an item which boosted his con, and he
advanced a level, increasing his max hp even more?
