I've got a tame female hobbit who started with 15HP but it's increased to 40 and won't go up any further. Max HP=40 for all hobbits? perhaps it should be mentioned, also hobbits being omnivorous isn't mentioned.

Erm... how do you know it's female? I believe you *can* increase its HP by letting it eat wraith corpses. I might be wrong though. --Gneek 23:38, 13 April 2008 (EDT)
It's trivial to get the sex of a suitable pet - the messages will say "The hobbit thrusts her elven dagger at the foo". Wraith corpses will work, although it is a lot of effort (they have to be hungry) and best saved for better pets... -- Kalon 05:03, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Gems

I don't think they can be generated with them - they just like collecting them (they have the M2_COLLECT flag), so I'll go ahead and remove that, unless someone proves me wrong. -Ion frigate 20:18, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Can use projectiles

I've noticed this in the monster templates of many monsters, that they can "use projectiles." Isn't this common to all monsters with weapon attacks? I think the ones that are marked as such in their templates are those that are often generated with projectile weapons, but in theory any monster that has a ranged weapon in its inventory should be able to use it, right? Or am I missing something? -Ion frigate 20:27, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
