Summary 0001958: mons descriptions should distinguish between move and act speeds
Description <N78291> daftfad: the description says it is moving slowly and moving somewhat quickly

An alligator was slowed while having swiftness. Descriptions in general should have two separate phrases for move delay and attack delay. In this case the alligator would simply be 'taking actions slowly'. No mention of movement if it's the case that slow+swift cancel - otherwise display another phrase saying 'and moving slowly'. This way it's explicit.

If you use "taking actions slowly" for slow, "covering ground quickly" would be a good bit better than "moving quickly" for swiftness, as the latter's very confusable with overall speed. Alternatively, you could just use "it is moving slowly/very quickly" for slow/haste and "it is swift" for swiftness, which is simpler and more straightforward.

These are clumsy, but that might be unavoidable - the swiftness spell could use something unique like "moving with the wind," but that's weird for alligators.

Implemented OG17's suggestion for swiftness description and just "fast"/"slow" for haste/slow, respectively.
