"Raise the alarm!"

Just a crazy idea...
- Breeders are removed entirely
- All intelligent monsters get intrinsic Summon Kin (1 in 5)

I am totally going to try this in a Neoband git branch.

Finally got around to implementing this in a git branch (titled "alarmband"). Most intelligent monsters, and some unintelligent ones, now have S:1_IN_12 | S_KIN (or more/less frequent if they already have spells).

It is *DEADLY*, even at only 1 in 12; especially for monsters like nagas that have high HP relative to their depth. Exponential growth, etc.

I might have to reduce it to 1/20 chance or so, but I'm actually really liking this.

That's certainly going to make Neoband harder!

I'm liking what I'm seeing, have you removed the breeders?

Also, Nick, any chance this makes it into vanilla? Who's the NPP maintainer nowadays?

Well, the monster list is slated for an overhaul at about 4.2, so you never know
