Ah, I see. @ had hypothermia from the cold.

Why does fire cause poisoning?

Never noticed it either. How exactly is it tied to damage? Is it something that will mostly affect only melee-heavy characters, given how the new breath mechanics work?
It becomes possible if the damage is close to the maximum for a resisted breath - for example, for fire the effect happens if a random number between 0 and the damage is greater than 500.

Elemental side effects are cool. Lightning could cause paralysis

Can we get customized additional messages to explain why the side-effect happened? Since it's rare, I suspect players will otherwise be left confused as Ingwe was.

Currently the tile @ is standing on can get webbed or turned to lava without the player being aware of it. Can we perhaps get terrain showed in the status line?

I agree this is a problem, but at least the game now prints a message every turn ("The lava burns you!").

I think he got the only one where I failed to do a customised message
