I don't believe this should be classified as a monster attribute but rather a weapon one, as it is hard coded to a number of monster classes. How do we handle such things? They are similar, but different. -- Kalon 04:49, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

word origin

Where does this funny word come from? Is it even a true English word? --Tjr 14:11, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

While not a valid entry in the English lexicon, the meaning does come through based on the component parts. A "kebab" (or kabob in parts of America) is the food produced by skewering meats and vegetables and then cooking them over flame. The suffix "-able" is used as denoting the ability to have the previous part happen, just like "skiable" means that something is able to be skied. Presumably monsters that are particularly juicy or susceptible to being skewered (and presumably, good eatin's) are classified as such. Just my 2zm -- Kalon 22:58, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
