boss monster description uses default generic text
The boss 'Nezic, the lich' uses the generic text for liches

Issue noticed from this post:

For the boss 'Nezic, the lich', the description should read as follows (rather than the default text for a lich):

A powerful undead creature that has clung to existence with dark magic, insisting with malevolent force that others feel the anguish it refuses to acknowledge for itself. Limbs with dried, tattered flesh beneath a terrible skeletal visage are barely visible from within a lush, flowing robe. The garmentís impeccable condition may be due to vain magic, or merely a recent acquisition from some poor soul who's life now sustains this once-man.

I'm unsure if the selected boss power is applied.

When you look at a boss monster and press [M] for a description, you will always read the generic description of the monster type. The special message is only displayed when you just meet him.

Hmm, then I guess this is not a bug but an RFE, but I think it would be a good idea to show the specific description also when looking at bosses.

Or even better, generic description + specific description, at least if that's not too long.

I've already spoken with Thomas about this problem, it's a bug.
