mushroom patch is an unknown quantity at this point
Well, I'm all for more sophisticated AI, but no, I don't think that check would make much of a difference either. If you're letting monsters hang around for more than a turn while fighting Morgoth, they must not pose any real threat. The check would either make the shriek never happen or make it happen in weird edge cases where you have a lot of unthreatening popcorn around that trips M's shriek threshold, so a wasted turn. The bottom line is that if there's stuff that would be threatening hasted, there's stuff that's threatening now and if that's the case, then the player is either already at work getting rid of it with banishment/TO or he's getting his ass handed to him and a round of Morgoth melee or a mana storm is going to be worse than the shriek.
