Yes, power is hardcoded in the txt file, and good luck to understand the values... If something changes in the code, you have to redo ALL the monsters. Why this is not calculated internally eludes my poor simple mind...
As far as I can tell monster power is used only in two other places: listing order in the monster list when depth is the same, and the monster rating element of the level feeling. So if it stops being used for the slays/brands, these will be fairly easy to remove and replace with depth.
