        The easiest way depends on your setup.  If you added levels and
didn't remake the thac0 table, you'll have to do that, so it's not based
on 20 - that's a code change.

        If you didn't change the number of levels, then the easiest
solution is simple: lower the differences in stats between levels due to
equipment.  My rule of thumb is that two people with the same level should
hit eachother about 50% of the time - given that they're wearing/wielding
average ac for their level.

        It's near enough that in stock for players of the same class, you
might just be trying something like a level 10 attacking a level 30.  I
don't really know because there was zero specific information included.
