C++ Class Example Building Monsters

c plus plusThis is a simple example of class inheritance in C++.  The class could certainly be built upon to make something like a console based RPG, but in this example we are  just showing an example of a class in C++.  Yes, I actually am working on a small RPG for the console, which I will eventually post. For now, we will create a few monsters with this quick and dirty show of inheritance and encapsulation. If you’ve been waiting on solutions to more wargames for OverTheWire, don’t worry, I do have them and will be throwing those up here soon. Cheers.
