I suggest an imperative "Brainy".

Any NPC that uses this imperative acts just as a brain would; it doubles the attack of all monsters in a room, including itself, until it either dies or the imperative is cancelled. (Perhaps this imperative could take some sort of multiplier, so that if desired a tripling or pentupling of attack could be achieved also.)

Among other things, this would allow the architect to create "brain" monsters that are have better statistics and are harder to kill, or give out better rewards upon dying.

We can make this the same way we make flying, wall-walking, and waterbound NPCs without these imperatives: Set the base graphic to the enemy with the resective attribute. An NPC with brain base graphics will double enemy attack.

But unlike the other Imperatives we wish we had, this one is easily scripted.

I like the idea. The low-level architect who wants to make a strong brain for his/her hold this way wouldn't have to do tedious scripting.

I think this is a good idea.

I went and looked at Nuntar's hold, and it hadn't occurred to me until just now that characters based off of the Brain type inherently cause ATK doubling like brains.

I still would like this imperative to be implemented, both so that this behavior can be given to characters not based off of Brains and so that the multiplier can be modified.
