The description of these issues is thus:
▌ "%o succumbed to a bishop's dark power."
Should be "a dark bishop's power.", since they are dark bishops in particular. If they weren't dark, they'd be regular bishops.
▌ "%o was scalded by a serpent."
Scalded means "[to] injure with very hot liquid or steam", and "serpent" should be changed to "chaos serpent"
Demon1 uses normal Obituary as HitObituary
I suggest "%o was maimed by a chaos serpent."
▌ "%o was poisoned by a serpent."
"Serpent" should be changed to "chaos serpent", and "poisoned" to "gassed" since the gas ball they shoot does fire damage instead of poison.
Demon2 uses normal Obituary as HitObituary
I suggest "%o was maimed by a chaos serpent.", once again
▌ "%o was incinerated by the death wyvern."
There is more than one death wyvern (as seen in DkotDC), so "the" should be "a".
▌ "%o couldn't absorb Menelkir's mana."
This is phrased weirdly and can give people the wrong idea when fighting him. I suggest changing it to "%o couldn't escape Menelkir's magic."
Since changes are sourced from the Google Docs and this thread, I thought it would be a better idea to bring the discussion over here where more eyes will see the issue.These have bothered me for years but since we've got #2186 I might as well post about them.
I hesitate to label this as "bug" the same way as that issue though, since they're not quite the same glaring inconsistencies for a game with much fewer eyes on it than Doom.
▌ %o was slashed by an imp.
There is no reasonable way that the movement depicted in TROOE-G - to say nothing of the sound effect when the attack lands - can be considered "slashing". Was this originally left over from copypasting the Heretic sabreclaw?
▌ %o was smitten by a cacodemon.
I think the intention here had been to refer to smiting by lightning, but I've pretty much never seen the word "smitten" outside of the sense of "she's so smitten with this boy band she's got posters all over her room", etc..
Describe the solution you'd like
Perhaps "scratched" and "zapped" respectively?
Describe alternatives you've considered
"Ionized" could be fun for the caco too.
