War orc: "Only appears in Gehennom and Grund's Stronghold; also appears in the Gnomish Mines if the PC is a dwarf" -- this sounds very much like a polymorph trap somebody didn't detect. I'm not an expert on SLASH'EM, so I'm not changing it. -Tjr 20:53, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

In SLASH'EM, if you're a dwarf or gnome, the dwarves or gnomes in the Gnomish Mines are replaced with other monsters because otherwise, the mines would be too easy. It works like this: For gnomes, gnomes are replaced with gnome zombies, gnomish wizards are replaced with orc shamans, gnome lords are replaced with gnome mummies, and gnome kings are replaced with ogres. For dwarves, dwarves are replaced with dwarf zombies, dwarf lords are replaced with dwarf mummies, and dwarf kings are replaced with war orcs. --Kahran042 23:17, October 25, 2009 (UTC)
Does that hold for the initial population only or also for randomly generated monsters after the level has been created? At least in vanilla, all this only/except Gehennom stuff refers to random monster generation and affects initial level population only as a side effect. -Tjr 11:46, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
