Hey! Who Xvarted?
Sorry about the title, I couldn't resist. I thought of another tiny thing I had noticed in the past about Larn: As part of my "volcano lottery" strategy, I am typically jumping around the Volcano with a Stealth scroll in effect. Sometimes, I will magic-missile a Xvart in order to lead it away from a place I need to get to, to pick up a valuable chest or book. Several times I have been leading a Xvart past some dragons (I believe they were Silver) and they "woke up" from the stealth! It's like the Xvart signals them or something. I haven't noticed any other monsters that will do that. It's gotten me killed many times.
