Introducing many types of poison is when the real fun begins

Something I think would be fun is if monsters could get poisoned in the same way as the player. A rouge could throw a poison bottle or poisoned dart at them and run away, and wait while the monster was softened up.

I was under the impression that mimics were magically animated version of the actual items (coins), covered with some sort of poisonous goo, therefore immune to poison. I'm not sure where I got that from though.

Another thing to consider is that some high level uniques could possibly be imagined as wearing items that give resistance, e.g. a Ring of poison resistance. Or they could be imagined as using spells that give resistance.

The usual portrayal of a mimic is a chest mimic, which looks like a chest until it opens, as the opening is its mouth.

How that would work for ring, scroll, etc. mimics I don't know.

I'd think that some of the trolls might be immune- case by case I'd think.

All undead should be immune - It's magic, not muscles that keeps em moving.

Jellies not being immune seems... strange at least. same goes for elementals.
How do you poison a living fire? and if you poison grape jelly, doesn't that just mean you shouldn't eat it?

New Monster Idea: Jalapeno Jelly! Give em a poison/fire attack and WHOO HOO!

and for a bit deeper in the dungeon, of course... Habanero Jelly!

Can the fire hurt just as the poison expires? for obvious reasons

Many of the jellies are described as mounds of flesh. In that case I think they can be poisoned. Or maybe it's the descriptions that are wrong?

What matters most, I think, is whether they are alive or dead. If they are alive somehow, I think they could be poisoned. I don't know if they are meant to be seen as alive, if they are magical, or if they are merely obstacles to dig through.

Does anyone else think mummies should be vulnerable to fire (i.e. have HURT_FIRE)?

Yeah (make then immune to electricity as compensation).

Really I'd expect electricity to set them on fire...
