Color differentiation for large kobolds/gnolls
So they stand out from the smaller ones

To help facilitate quick identification without having to use the (l)ook command, I propose the symbols for large kobolds be changed to brown, large gnolls changed to dark red. Currently they're not immediately distinguishable from their lesser cousins. Precedent: large orcs are identified with a darker green color than common orcs.

Not sure of the exact colors, but I like this idea a lot. It's always a pain to have to look-identify large gnolls, which are much more dangerous in the early game.

You can target-identify instead of look-identifying, but I still think it's a neat idea. However I propose large kobolds be changed to dark green and large gnolls to dark grey, to make the colors more thematic. I realize this would make large kobolds and kobold chieftains the same color, but brown k's would just look odd and non-koboldy to me.

Adjusted according to the original proposal as I believe that clarity is more important than total consistency.
