Summary 0007961: Game refers to vampire as "it" when it attacks after vanishing
Description Whenever a vampire(I think it applies to sky beasts as well) flickers and vanishes and then attacks you without being visible, the game refers to it as "it". (It hits you but does no damage etc). This can be frustrating, especially when fighting a lot of different enemies.
I think it should be called by its name or maybe "something" instead which, while general, leaves some kind of mystery as to the identity of the enemy.

The game now (0.14-a0-1833-g8574891) refers to invisible creatures as "something" rather than "it". It is intentional that the game doesn't tell you the monster's name: even if you saw it go invisible, it might not be the only invisible creature around.
