    Kind of have mixed feelings on this because if you're not good at keeping track of things, knowing what you need to replace is much easier with those messages.

    I think a generic one would be useful for grouped items like arrows, bombs, ammo? and the like that are kept in large quantities.

    Arrows (outside a quiver) and ammo aren't groupable, which is part of the problem. Even for groupables, the decay times of individual items in a group are tracked separately; they're individual items, so they get individual decay messages. What would be nice, I think, would be a check for identical items decaying on a given tick, and consolidation into a single message - "You are dismayed as 50 chipped iconic shards decay to dust in your hands.", "30 black walnut vials have decayed to dust in your absence.". Vials raise a complication, since there's a message about the contents as well; maybe only consolidate those with the same contents.

    Since it just gives item names and not IDs, no information would be lost by condensing items of the same name to a single message, like "10000 dust bombs have decayed to dust in your absence."

    Or you could condense all decays to a single message ("10000 dust bombs, a turkey potpie, shadowy assassin trousers, crotchless panties, and 5 lobelia seeds have decayed to dust in your absence"), but that could get really long, and it could be difficult to see at a glance what decayed.

    Yeah, would prefer separate messages for each item description.

    You really should have used them before they decayed...
