My stupid question: Why to weapons of Morgul Slay Undead when they're supposed to be the weapons of the ringwraiths who are undead?

In reality? Because they’re supposed to be potentially useful.

Within game continuity, one could argue that because they are weapons that exist in the shadow realm that the Ringwraiths exist in, they are particularly effective against other creatures that exist in that realm

Here's another dumb question: why don't wands/spear of light spells harm dark hounds?

Hounds are not elementals and are not monsters of Evil* (as much as they seem that way.)

* with one exception

Carcharoth, the Jaws of Thirst is evil - but he's a C - a Canine, not a hound.

Going on your definition, I'd throw Aether hounds in there too...

Okay, more questions:

How much damage does Dispel Evil/_Holy/_Power do?

How does "damage reduction" work? I just found some armor with this ability but I've never seen it before.

Dispel Evil the prayer does a random amount of damage between 1 and clevel * 5. The staffs are more predictable - Dispel Evil does a flat 60 damage, Holiness a flat 120, and Power also 120, but to everything rather than just evil.

You can check this stuff by looking at class.txt and object.txt.

It's a flat reduction of any damage the player takes. So it's not great against big breaths or spells, but excellent against things involving many small attacks (crowds of breeders, poisoning, banishment, etc).

How do you mean banishment? How does armour reduction help in this sense?
