             come upon Grimnoth himself.  You must cast the Slay Evil spell
             on Grimnoth.  Demons are very difficult to beat but you can use
             magic and weapons on them.  Skeleton warriors are killed only 
             by magic.  Beezleroths sometimes bounce magic back at you, so 
             it is not always a good idea to cast an explode spell on them.
