Hmm, unless I've been away from my code for too long, two_arguments will
simply take the first two words (chars enclosed by spaces) and put them
into the second two variables given, returning the rest to the first.  What
you might want to try here instead is using half_chop (an oldie but a
goodie), or else, only one_argument.  Although half_chop might suit you
better.  As in:

  struct char_data *victim;
  char name[MAX_INPUT_LENGTH], short_descr[MAX_INPUT_LENGTH];

  half_chop(argument, name, short_descr);

half_chop is found in interpreter.c (unless my modified version had moved
it there... don't remember), it's header is as follows:
/* return first space-delimited token in arg1; remainder of string in arg2
void half_chop(char *string, char *arg1, char *arg2)

which seems to me what you're trying to do with two_arguments.

Hope this helps.
