I obviously miss time hounds from the list
In the early levels most of the jellies (especielly ochre jellies) and hummerhorns which come to my mind - i very rarely fight those if i have a choice.
I forgot about Time Hounds. The list isn't exhaustive. There are a lot of nasty monsters.

There's a cool mechanic in Sil where you get less XP for killing the same monster type over and over again. I don't love the formula, but I love the concept. Could make killing at least one 9 headed hydra worthwhile, and more interesting choices as the XP reward for various monsters changes.

Eh, I take that back: I think the formula is good.

Could be an interesting option, tho I know V is intentionally option-slim. I wonder what the corrective factor would have to be, and how you could take into account massed monsters like orcs vs solo monsters.

"Eddieband" works that way, sort of. You get one exp for 3very distinct kill, and every time you ID-by-use. It is based on 3.0.5, but with squelch. I might play it if it had rune-ID as well.

What is Eddieband and do you only get 1 XP for each distinct type of monster and no other XP for kills?

Eddieband is a Van Halen themed variant.

XP are renamed Objective Units (OU).

You only need OU812 to get to level 50.

And every class gets Jump.

Distinct monsters, yes. And it was a beta that Eddie grove (aka Powerdiver) made before retiring from the game. I lost my copy, alas, but I suspect there is a copy around somewhere.
