Hi. Welcome to the wiki. I don't think there's any convincing reason to believe that spectres "eat players rather than just biting". I've undone your edits unless you can provide something to back this up. Fraggle 17:49, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's like this: When a spectre kills you, there is a message that says "Player was eaten by a spectre", while for the deamon, it says "Player was bit by a deamon". I hope this helps. Wattamack4 13:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)Alex
Those messages only appear in source ports, they aren't part of the original game. Fraggle 00:15, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
And you shouldn't read too much into them. They're just fancy ways of saying "a monster killed you". There is no technical difference between a spectre's attack and a demon's one. --Gez 12:41, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Well, thanks for letting me know. Wattamack4 22:32, 25 August 2009 (UTC)Alex
