This is ofcourse all available in ColdC since ColdC is a generic progrmamig
environment you build your core within. In fact this is repcisely how Im
handling AD&D spells sicne they are each so different from the other. Each
is a seperate chikd of the "spall" obejct with independant code.
But ist not really all that ugly, if thats what you are tryign to reach.
It can be done witha proepr and clean object model.
