Nick will become famous soon enough
Dragons: thematic reasons, biggish changes. d's will be non-flying (and possibly called worms), D's flying. Probably no D's outside Angband - these guys will be really scary. All will be evil. Possible new breath type, a combination of fire and poison.

Morgoth: thematic reasons again. Incredibly quick isn't really in theme, so probably slow him down and make him summon more. Especially dragons Possibly introduce some extra wrinkles into the final fight, but I'm still thinking about that.

Terrain probably won't change much to the player, it will mainly be the way it's handled internally. The main observable change should be that the descriptions of terrain improve (on the knowledge screen, for example).
