I write computer software for a living, mostly in Perl. I give away lots of it. Share and enjoy!

In my spare time, I tell my daughter stories about Batman, read books, watch movies, play video games, and try desperately to play D&D even though nobody I know wants to.

Thanks. The pointer to FC p.78 was especially point-settling!

Thanks! p149: automatic damage, breath weapon, charm, energy drain, fear, gaze attack, immunity to normal weapons, immunity to morale checks, invisibility, paralysis, petrification, poison, regeneration, spell-casting, splitting or summoning other creatures, swallowing whole, and spell-like or other abilities of similar potency.

I had clearly blocked from my mind the fact that the table calls for the DM to provide a small per-HP XP count in addition to the per-HD one. Yow! Too much math! Still, the table and its explanation has been very useful, so thanks again.

Thanks, that's very useful, and yet another reason to reread the 1E DMG continually.
