[flavour] Various death messages in mortem.txt
« on: April 22, 2010, 12:46 »

There were various messages depending on the reason of death in original DOOM. Here they are:
went boom. (barrel)
was killed by a former human.
was burned by an imp.
was slashed by an imp.
was shot by a former sergeant.
was bit by a demon.
was perforated by a former captain.
was melted by former commando's plasma gun.
was spooked by a lost soul.
was smitten by a cacodemon.
got too close to a cacodemon.
was bruised by a Baron of Hell.
was ripped open by a Baron of Hell.
was splayed by a Hell Knight.
was gutted by a Hell Knight.
let an arachnotron get him.
couldn't evade a revenant's fireball.
was punched by a revenant.
was squashed by a mancubus.
was incinerated by an archvile.
splattered by a cyberdemon.
Monster has 2 messages if it has different close and ranged attacks.

What about getting melee'd by any of these?  (Although "splattered" by Cybie's iron hoof sounds about right.)  As for the rest, you could just have a more generic "You were wimped by one of your own kind."

However, we'll need other death messages for the DoomRL-only monsters.  I'm thinking (warning: spoilers for beginners):
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Yours are all good, with the possible exception of removing the "plasma gun" bit to the commando, simplifying to "was melted by a former commando."  The other formers don't mention their weapons, after all.

A variation of this will most likely be implimented at some point in time. Feel free to keep adding to the list!

Also: Mentioning the weapon used probably isn't a good idea, if you consider this post.

became too berserk(CC)
couldn't survive the next wave(H's A)
found what to do in the Wall, but payed too big price for that
became the part of the City of Skulls
was spidered to death
couldn't handle the carnage (HoC)
found that it's really hot there (LP)

Don't forget mine: they're embedded in the Spoiler tag but should still be valid candidates.

As for some non-monster varieties:
Code: [Select]
spent all his luck beforehand. (as a result of acid/lava-flooding lever)

didn't even set a foot in the base. (Phobos Base Entry)

succumbed to his arachnophobia. (Spider's Lair)
was lost in the screams of anguish. (The Mortuary)
gave his final answer. (The Mortuary)
took his sweet time burning up. (Lava Pits)
forgot to get out of the oven. (Lava Pits)

Yeah, good luck with that.
