	It's not a difficult thing to do, really, just requires a lot of
typing and some patience.  The difficult thing is that constants.c has a
table for how stats modify abilities (skills, wield weight, carry weight,
etc., etc.)  Also, make sure you change the limits in limits.c and be
warned that you'll have to do a bit of tinkering with spells that affect
strength, etc. (e.g., poison) to make them have any real signifigance to

	Actually it sounds more like an advertisement for your MUD... :)

	Hm, I'm kind of curious what you mean by, "Players are not allowed
to 'cast' -- objects provide all 'magic'"  Care to elaborate on that?

	As for not needing OLC because you are making an offline editor
that's rather silly.  One thing I like about having OLC is that builders
can get input, can test it, can have other's test it, and can look at
other areas to balance things out.  While the second and last of these
things could be accomplished, the other's couldn't, and even those
accomplished could only be done to a certain degree by the off-line editor
(unless you keep the editor's code up-to-date with your MUD and add all
the spells, fight system, etc. to it).
