Nick did something similar for FA on NDS (IIRC) back in the day. There were only a handful of buttons left--one for "use", one for fire, ones for directional movement/running, and it had mouse...

right. As well as IMP_HP and AGGRO, throw in a few random permanent curses at the start. Steelskin would make it a real challenge since there's no temp resist for electricity.

Permanent aggro and impaired HP is a nightmarish combo. No-one will want to play that.

Not very smart then. It should keep trying occasionally just to keep you honest, at around 10%-20% odds.

Wobbly--does this mean you can take of Narya once the monster learns your immunity (and presumably doesn't hit you in melee with the same element)?

But how many times did it breathe disenchantment? Presumably many more than 2 or 3. That would mean it *did* learn that you have immunity, but "checked" that you didn't take it off. And yes, stunning...

Sphara--it is correct for the occasional immune breath because you might have changed your equipment. It should be rare though, more like 1/5 to 1/10 the normal rate. Tarrasque usually breathes fire...

This has a trivial work-around: use a rapier. They are as long as many other swords, but don't weigh much more than a dagger.

Once you have TO, you shouldn't have to worry about Balrog of Moria, independent of stat gain. Just quaff !rFire and zap him away. He can't do more than ~100 damage vs. double resist. )
