Does nothing as far as I can see -- I guess having it replace/mimick
the calm skill would be too good (esp with 0% failure) but at least have
it get rid of rage/inspire? It's rather frustrating to find out that the
ace up your sleeve had its code yanked without so much as an announcement.

Hmm... I just checked and the majority of the code on this particular
spell hasn't changed since Feb '98. Which was the second version under
the version control system we're using. There were a couple of minor
line format changes since then, but that was mostly indenting. =)
Otherwise the code for this spell looks like it does exactly what the
help file says it does. So I'm a little confused about how it was
"changed" so radically.

If I recall correctly, february 98 was when I was active as either
Vaj or Agni, and back then the calm spell did work even while the
caster was fighting.
Currently, through probably some other code change, it doesn't work
when the caster is involved in combat. That's the part I have problem
with, since it no longer allows the combatant to cast the spell in
order to negate effects of inspire/rage.
I would suggest you test it out, with means not available to us, as
our fieldtesting show that the caster cannot be involved in combat for
this spell to work.

calm spell works, but you have to 'target' it, even if only to yourself
