Cut from perform_violence(), fight.c: bpl20 (actually the same snip dak

    hit(ch, FIGHTING(ch), TYPE_UNDEFINED);
    if (MOB_FLAGGED(ch, MOB_SPEC) && mob_index[GET_MOB_RNUM(ch)].func !=
      char actbuf[MAX_INPUT_LENGTH] = "";
      (mob_index[GET_MOB_RNUM(ch)].func) (ch, ch, 0, actbuf);

This is actually the part where snakes bite, mages cast, etc. when fighting.

And, as a side note that change happened long ago (at least before bpl16,
which was when I entered the Circle community).
