Demogorgon guffaws. Demogorgon stings! You feel deathly sick.

It might be fun to have encounters with strong sentient monsters start with a snappy quote, before melee (or better strategy than that) begins. Imps and shopkeepers do a little of this, but it's just a constant level of chatter; what I'm suggesting would involve the monster sizing you up and deciding to talk smack. Could get old in a hurry, and I'm not sure I'd like for it to degenerate into what we saw from the Black Knight in MPatHG.

I always wondered why monsters don't start to avoid you the tougher you get. Only hordes or strong ones should attack you the deeper you get. And they should flee when seriously wounded.

I poured my coffee over the keyboard. E without further comment.

They do flee sometimes when seriously wounded. But they always come back, the chumps.

@slowpoke: Quest nemeses do that already, but their dialogue isn't all that good.
