DescriptionAdds many more spells for monsters to cast
 This patch adds quite a lot of new spells for monsters to cast, among them:

* Arrow Rain - you are hit with a large quantity (increasing with the caster's level) of (in decreasing likelihood) arrows, daggers, spears, knives, javelins, axes, or random projectiles.

* Make Web - creates a web on your space and ensnares you in it.

* Punish - same as uncursed scroll of punishment.

* Acid Rain - as seen in the Lethe patch. Does 8d6 acid damage to you, and corrodes your wielded weapons and armor.

And many more! (No, really, there ARE many more.)

It also changes the means by which spells are chosen by monsters, and gives certain unique monsters "favourite" spells that they will use more often.

If anyone was EVER able to get a hold of him you could ask him why it does this? Maybe if you were EVER able to get ahold of him he could submit an update.


AND if anyone ACTUALLY can get ahold of him maybe you could ask him to fix his shallow water patch that BREAKS all trap colors, and swallow & explode glyphs.[Quote]

Seems like you could either apply this patch and then remove what you don't want or just "hand code" it leaving out the spells (and leaving in spells) that you want.[Quote]

Wonderful, except it breaks compatibility with some other patches.[Quote]

Er, is this supposed to give warnings regarding non-prototyped functions at compile?[Quote]

Since Huhetotl is the god of fire, wouldn't it make sense for his minion to be able to use some sort of fire ability?[Quote]

I really like the idea behind giving monsters more spells, but I'm not so fond of some of the new ones (turn to stone?) and I'm not sure like the removal of Touch of Death (although it would decrease the essentialness of magic resistance).
But that's the whole point![Quote]
