It seems like destruction should have no effect in single combat, otherwise you are not really locked in single combat. Similar argument for earthquakes. What happens if you teleport other or teleport self in single combat?

Teleports do nothing. Can't even phase door.

Interestingly, while Destruct does destroy your opponent it doesn't make a mess of the dungeon floor.

Having earthquake not work is a bit problematic because presumably that would mean Morgoths shatter wouldnt work either. As is, while single combat keeps Morgoth from summoning, it makes his shatter more dangerous because you have less room to maneuver.

Negating *two* of Morgoths attacks (summons and shatter) would make it a bit too powerful I think.

You don't get credit for killing an opponent with an earthquake?

Haven't tried with earthquake, but since you don't get credit for Destructing them, and Earthquake doesn't permanently kill Uniques any more than Destruction does, I'm going to assume that you don't.
