Morgoth in 1.4.1 was a long slog of attrition that frequently ran the player out of potions before they had Morgoth on the ropes. I don't think this was fun.

Current Morgoth is slayable by truly...

Have made some attempts to fix this, but the generation code is of very dubious quality and probably needs a comprehensive rewrite.

I describe green serpents as being an oversight precisely because no other serpents have an issue.

Looking at the monster list, this is true of all venomous animals with three exceptions:

Assuming you're now on track for the throne-room, you will need:

No, the manual doesn't cover commands/interactions currently - but there's probably a good case that the help screen should.
