   Not a bad thing at all, but my mages, upon missing a handful of
spells at the target they are fighting, and getting hurt badly for
something they are already penalized with by the loss of an action and
mana.  I was just looking to change it so if the mob doesn't have them
as a prime target, it will hit them, otherwise, they are already in
combat, and don't need to be hit again.

   Thank you, this helped a lot.  Saved me more hours of having the
piece of code right under my nose.  Another Builder note while I'm
sending this. Is room 2529 supposed to be a Death Trap?
