Bug: Backstab skill misuses short_descr field for players
Danger: Low - Players don't have a short_descr field, so (null) shows up in its place.
Discovered in: AFKMud 1.77
Found by: Toadvile

skills.c, do_backstab

Locate:
   if( victim->hit < victim->max_hit )
   {
      ch_printf( ch, "%s is hurt and suspicious, you'll never get close enough.\n\r", victim->short_descr );
      return;
   }


Change to:
   if( victim->hit < victim->max_hit )
   {
      ch_printf( ch, "%s is hurt and suspicious, you'll never get close enough.\r\n",
         ( IS_NPC( victim ) ? victim->short_descr : victim->name ) );
      return;
   }


Not much explanation needed. Only NPCs have the short_descr field so referring to it on players is pointless.
