"Roguelike" is an entire genre and most games in the genre feature permadeath, though it's sometimes optional. So there's the classic roguelikes like NetHack, ADOM, Crawl, etc. There's also modern...

Gothmog is a creature of fire and shadow; what does that look like? I can definitely see an argument for his whip making things darker.

Good news! We're in the 4.2.0 bugs thread, so hopefully Nick will see this. :)

Adamantite, and mithril, are both corrosion-proof. That holds for armor made of the metal just as much as it does for monsters made of it.

1d100 is a flat distribution (equal chance of any value); 34d2 is heavily weighted (very unlikely to deal either min or max damage). Of the two I would tend to prefer the latter, though they have...
