Well, only some enhancements or spells will be trained through out the
mud.  I do not want to toss away the old system or class based
skills\spells.  I would just like for people to be able to find the
Swordsman and learn his stance (if they are a warrior).  Granted there are
skills I would like everyone to be able to learn... and spells I would like
all magic users to be able to learn.. etc.  Power is an extremely big issue
to me.  I do not want it to be where people are so powerful that newbies
don't have a chance.

The problem I have is I don't know how to make a skill\spell available to a
user if they are not part of that class.  I have no understanding of how
the skills and spells are stored in the character files.

I am currently putting in the code for DG Scripts after numerous
suggestions, and I will look into how spells and skills are stored... and
possibly change that to suit my needs.

Thank you - S.D.
