Resisting genocide is not a property of (non-unique) monster races or monster types; all monsters of any race and type have a level-dependent chance to resist (though it's zero for townspeople).

I wouldn't worry too much about the screenshot, but pav would be the person to contact if you think something needs to be done.

It's very hard to predict what items a character will need. For example, scrolls of detect monsters are utterly useless for much of the game (in many cases, the entire game), but can become a sneaky...

Almost certainly not a bug.

You can get curses in two ways; they can be an inherent part of the item, or they can be added to the item like when you're cursed by an enemy. The former kind of curse...

They are not any more likely to drop for characters with the Lucky personality or Lucky aura; you've just been... lucky?

They are less likely to drop for unlucky characters, though.

Thanks, I think what's happening there is that it displays that message as long as item generation is called; but item generation can fail. I'll make it check that the item is actually created.

The Orc Camp reward will be changed to a staff of enlightenment (not just for maulers but for everybody, apart from a few exceptions).
