A small add-on that some may find useful. It freezes all brain nine sprites on the screen for 5 seconds.

The file includes a test DMOD in which Matridge asks you to save the girl to test the spell - but unfortunately the author has written the spell so that it can't be used on screens with brain 10 sprites and the girl is a brain 10 sprite - so you can't test the spell on that screen.

You can test it on other screens in which there are just brain 9 monsters...

There are no accompanying graphics other than an item graphic. It would help if there was a count of the 5 seconds or how many seconds are remaining.

There is a new sound, but somehow it didn't seem to fit to me, not a big enough, blood curdling cry that would make the strongest slayer quiver and shake in fear.

And then it occured to me that this warcry spell was very similar to the confusion spell I had in Pilgrim's Quest.

It would be better if the script changed brains from 9 to say 99 - which means the monster'll do nothing... and also change brain 10 to 100 that way you could cast the spell on all dragons. And then change them back once the five seconds was up... and the way cry could go for 5 seconds perhaps, or if 1 second long, repeat itself 5 times...

And I wasn't too fond of being kicked out of the test DMOD for not reading the readme...

Overall 6.9 - you might find a use for it but I'd recommend changing it.
