I made it all into a formula and made sure that a line like:

return(MIN(20, MAX(2, thaco)));

was the return statement. That way thaco is never higher or lower than 2

Did something similar with exp tables and saving throws. Just made it a
formula. That way altering levels later on is easier, and it made the
files tons smaller.
