Mailing list? IRC, what's that? I didn't know of such things.

The OoD object generation seems to have a *lot* more variability and seems about right. It would be nice if the monsters were also. I guess I'll just sit around and wait.

EDIT: A quick fix, if anybody notices this, would be to change
259	#define NASTY_MON    25        /* 1/chance of inflated monster level */
to this
259	#define NASTY_MON     5        /* 1/chance of inflated monster level */
