What drquick said. You just don't find enough !EXP for it to help you advance much after CL35. Yes, it's a nice boost. No, it isn't any better than a group of chaos hounds for a player with the...

There is always HE mage, which no longer has the crippling HP penalty. And yeah, stealth and caution are key either way.

You have to play as warrior-mage, at least until partway thru stat gain. But the extra HP and strength makes up for a lot. It's similar to HE priest: class and race characteristics offset each other,...

I am guessing modern (4.0 and later) would make for a way cleaner PosBand re-implementation than PCB. That codebase includes some of the worst old-school spaghetti code I have seen in a looong time.

Correct. It also was intended as simple decoration. It is encoded as 2+d3 lava streamers. In principle, you could extinguish them with dragon breath/cold ball wands.

Carry !rPoison for monsters like Ungoliant, and you should never see this effect. Max damage is only 266--most characters have more than enough HP to avoid secondary effects at this level of damage.
