In response to your first question, I believe it to be more work to undo a
system that is stock than to code my own that is custom to what I want or
what you may want. I think Mr. Elson tried to leave as much room for
customization as possible. It may have been nice to have multi-race and
multi-attacks as part of base circle30bpl8 but its just as much fun to
create your own. I have coded multi-attacks on my mud and I'm working on
races now. If you or anyone else would like to see any code just drop me a
line. I'll do whatever I can to help a fellow coder :)
