This data is valid for the IBM PC version.

Some monsters also have spell attacks or breath attacks. Mimics and doppelgangers can jump into your party and impersonate one of your party members, but only if you leave an empty slot.

The Group column is the max number of this particular monster that will appear in a chance encounter. Anything from Mad God down is really academic, since those monsters don't appear in random encounters.
