If I recall correctly, D&D stats are supposed to represent sigmas away from average when using a normal distribution. Every +1 ability modifier (+2 to the base stat) is an extra sigma. You would...

This could in principle be extended, so you could have cursed items that just make it so there's 20% more monsters on each level and new monsters spawn in faster, for example. Or specifically there's...

Even in the old days, the "don't go below this depth or you risk instant death" was vastly more a think in the players' minds than it was in how the game worked. Monsters are a bit more common once...

One simple fix would be to give the deeper ringwraiths a "friends" tag so that they have the shallower wraiths with them, assuming said shallower wraiths haven't already been killed of course.

The only ringwraith that has historically (in-game, not in-lore) been able to summon ringwraiths is the Witch-King of Angmar. All the others have never been able to summon their pals, except maybe by...

That could be easily "fixed" by making stat potions cap out at 18 instead of 18/100. :)
