i->character is null.  You didnt do a list but I"m assuming i is a pointer in the descriptor list somewhere.  What happenes is some player isnt in the game, so
they dont have i->character allocated, and tada crash.  to fix make it:
        if (i->character != NULL && i->character->player_specials->saved.clan == c) {
