Confirmed. He's not.

Any way to make this more compact?

I really hope so.

Heeeèy .. that was *my* suggestion, from months ago.
It then degenerated into "breathing chaos sucks", remember?

Now that speed is shown as a multiplier, any thought to providing a similar multiplier for monsters in the monster descriptions? E.g., "... and moves quickly (x2.2)...."

Seems like the obvious solution.

Yes, it's mostly a matter of teaching the text generator to recognize that this is a possibility. So the question wasn't so much "what should this text look like", more "Hey Nick, are you willing to spend the effort to make this look better?" :)

Oh, I didn't realize these were automatically generated.

After my dwarf priest met an untimely end on '1550 (he let Kavlax out of a mini vault thinking he could TO him before he breathed, but one failure at operating the wand, and oh well, and yeah, I know it was stupid) I decided to try a human warrior. Sure seems like the early game is pretty awful for this class. Activating every trap, not finding the right equipment...etc.

I'm used to playing mages and rangers and the occasional priest, but it does seem like the game is weighted against my poor warrior. Yes, it could be the RNG but it just feels unbalanced. Perhaps a discussion more for the planned 4.2.0 changes.
