In theory this whole discussion, imo, is totally awesome and would be a refreshing breath of air (no pun intended) for poison. Right now poison is YABA (yet another ball attack) since, lets be honest, the -1 hp/turn is pretty trivial beyond CL4-ish and pretty much meaningless beyond CL10-ish.

I wouldn't call it unbalanceable. It's just something that cant really be balanced on paper. It needs lots and lots of play testing. Experiencing the effects first hand and seeing what works and what doesn't is key.

A little thread necromancy in a thread that I'd prefer to see dead: I see I've fallen to 4th place now. (Also: I am back and playing, for a while. I got angband burnout in November.)
