Boss monster is a special feature added as of version 1.2 prerelease 9. Practically, a special monster (from a fixed list) has a chance of being generated on any level with corresponding DL. The list includes 147 creatures submitted by ADOM Resurrection campaign participants. Each participant of Hero or higher pledge levels was allowed to choose an existing monster type, gender, name, special description and a set of 1, 2 or 3 (based on pledge level) extra abilities.

Boss monster mechanics[править | править исходный текст]

Special messages and appearance[править | править исходный текст]

As soon as a boss monster is generated on the level with the PC the following message is displayed:

You sense an imminent and blood-chilling threat...

A wand of monster detection/scroll of monster detection may be used to check the location of the monster. Boss monsters are displayed with the symbol of their corresponding monster type, but all share purple color. As soon as the monster enters PC's visible range another message with a (more) prompt is generated:

You meet ,

It is then followed by boss monster special description.

If a boss monster leaves a corpse, it will be a standard corpse for that monster type (e.g., Huckree will drop a normal blue goblin corpse).

List of known boss monsters[править | править исходный текст]

Name Type Description Special abilities Notes
Abaddon Emberwing griffon A brilliant red, orange and yellow plumage covers this magnificent creature. Aside from the sheer size of him, causing him to tower over his brethren, a thick smoke pours from Abaddon's beak and his eyes burn a dark, sinister red. This is what happens when griffins meddle in the affairs of fire demons, it seems. Fire breath attack (possibly also reduced movement energy cost, similar to cat lord)
Ahiru Togtin cave lion A faint light shines through him, as of stars on a moonless night. His mane glistens vaguely in all colors of the rainbow. This spectral guardian of cats is sent to observe for his master, the Cat Lord. Passes through walls
Alessa bandit A fearless woman with long dark hair and a look of cold determination, wearing a cloak bearing letters "JZB." By the way she handles her dual blades, it's obvious she's an expert in swordplay. It's unclear why such a noble-looking woman turned to a life of crime, but her targets rarely get the chance to consider the matter. Drops treasure (a light cloak and two long swords)
Althenia dark elven priestess She is slender and is wearing a flowing hooded black robe that conceals hidden horrors. There is a purple glow emanating from beneath the hood that illuminates her face. Her pale eyes and silver hair reflect the glow, and the strange runes painted on her face radiate their own crimson light. As she approaches, gliding smoothly across the floor, the air becomes cold and you feel the urge to flee but you are frozen in fear. Althenia screams an ear-splitting magical incantation in a harsh language, and as the echos die you see an evil smile form on her face. Her robes begin to billow and from them a swarm of giant spiders emerger. You wonder why you ever chose to enter this place.. Cone of cold spell (similar to ogre magus)
Andra barbarian (female) Green eyes, red hair, alabaster skin, old and dusty light blue clothing, a knife with beautiful dragon like handle. Drops treasure (possibly)
Antharaxa tarantula (female) This spider has eight legs and many eyes but the similarities with its lesser cousins end here. For one thing it is larger than an ox. Its many eyes shine with an unusual intelligence and its fangs drip a vicious venom. Oh, and it rushes towards you with unnatural speed right now... Unknown
Anu the Death Dog jackal The avatar and guardian of a long-forgotten death deity, Anu is a jackal of immense proportions. Once the guardian of the tombs of pharaohs and the veil, through the corruption of chaos he has become instead a bringer of death. Coarse fur, black as night, covers rippling muscles that quiver with the need to kill while glowing red, insane eyes glare out in a never ending search for living flesh to rend. Bypasses PV, regenerates
Argyle Clark master swordsman This man walks with a sense of purpose and an air of grace. The sword at his hip swishes in time with his legs as if just another part of his body. His eyes seem to draw in his surroundings, leaving no nook or cranny to the shadows. Though his gait and mien demonstrate great experience, not a scar or scratch mar a single inch of his skin. His face is as clear as the young man he was years ago. As he nears, he emits a faint glow just visible from the corner of one's eye. Regenerates, casts healing spell
Arik orc scorcher You see a grizzled and wiry orc scorcher, veteran of many skirmishes and you know he has already spotted you. Instead of the traditional scorcher warpaint, he appears to have daubed a foul, poisonous liquid over his face, body and armour. His eyes gleam with manic rage as he attacks! Poisons
Arngrim berserker lord Coming from the grim Northlands of Ancardia, Arngrim, the berserker lord, is the only one left of his village of Waahl. The rest were brutally slain by Arngrim's bare hands. Nor have the others he has encountered managed to survive, despite overwhelming odds. And now his insane look is focused on a new target, and that target is you... Paralyzing touch
Ar'Xanth wraith The air around the wraith is filled with stench of decay. Patches of black mold start to grow on everything in the vicinity of this creature. Sickness-inducing attack
Aurum cave tiger Though all tigers could be said to have a golden hue, never is this description so literal as with the brilliantly colored coat of Aurum, the legendary Golden Tiger. Possessed of an incredible speed, an uncanny ability to heal from any wound, and a great love of raw bloodied meat, legend holds that Aurum's giant gullet hides a vast hoard of treasure. Be wary, however, it's been suggested that this fabled prize is itself a fiendishly crafted distraction from an even greater reward... Drops treasure, regenerates
Avril Cerby doppelganger king  (female) You shudder under the gaze of this creature, it looks like it can read your thoughts or dismember you just by looking. It mockingly abopts your posture, walk, face... Suddenly you realize you can neither hide from it nor surprise it in combat. And THAT it already knows. Unknown
Broja dark elven wizard  (female) Those among the dark elven race who do not have physical strength must either display talents in magic or die young. In the harsh competition of the underground realms, only those elves with great powers survive to become wizards. The black eyes seem to glow with dark power, obscuring elvish features behind a dark haze. She seems pretty powerful but somewhat careless and absent-minded. Teleports
Blier-Kreg Eldunkun hobgoblin leader This hobgoblin shows more intellect and cunning than others of his kind. His mismatched armor is possibly as good as your own and his eyes gaze past his bulbous blue nose appraisingly. He carries a pole to which swords have been crudely attached to make a double bladed spear. As you eye the clumsy looking weapon, he effortlessly and skillfully puts it into a deadly

spin. This will be a fight for your life!

Drops treasure (a quarterstaff and two short swords), Extra attack
Chillbreath frost giant berserker A chill runs down your spine, and even worse, over your entire body. Even from a distance, the mere presence of this massive being strikes fear into your heart. You have only heard rumor of the powers this giant wields but they are enough to make you think twice about approaching. His eyes dart rapidly over you. A grin crosses his face as he has clearly decided you pose no real threat. Unknown
"Dally" Daylin Sequin master swordsman  (female) Although clearly fit and agile, this youthful female swordsman is relatively plain looking - even for a human. Despite this, she wears finely crafted armour made out of cured displacer beast hide, and is carrying a keen and clearly master-worked blade in each hand. Then, with a smile, she is suddenly standing right in front of you - with tiny motes of gold floating around her like snow as she appears! Drops treasure (two iron short swords), teleports
Dara chaos warlord  (female) A tall, slender girl with close-cropped brown hair. She wears a checkered black and white fencing jacket and wields a rapier in her right hand. Deep within, her dark eyes are burning with an eerie green fire. Sees in darkness (possibly) This is likely a reference to a character of the same name in Roger Zelazny's fantasy series The Chronicles of Amber
Devilxer dark sage A strong, green eyed scholar in long white robes strides toward you. He possesses knowledge of things beyond the comprehension of any normal man, and his mind has obviously been corrupted by this very knowledge. This contact with chaotic forces has also given the sage dark magical powers, and a strong lust for power. And colour-blindness. Fire breath attack, summons, drops treasure
Ed the Undying mummy A tall mummy, wrapped in bandages of ancient silk and wearing a gold-filigreed crown. Regenerates
Eibhlhin displacer beast  (female) Her fur is milk white and tentacles are shimmering with dim warm light. This is an odd light - it does not make things more visible, but rather more transparent. Eibhlhin looks into your eyes. Suddenly you feel as if you are standing naked in front of her, without any armor or protection. Bypasses PV
Ekke Ptangya ankheg (female) Acid oozes out of every pore from its emerald green carapace, and the very dungeon floor seems to cringe away where it crawls. Its ominous chittering gives you the shivers; it is said those who hear it seldom live to tell the tale, and seeing the size of its mandibles, it is not hard to believe. Unknown
Emperor Spytle goblin chieftain From lineage truly ancient

And deep into the Nytrealms sent

To overthrow a beastly foe

Was Spytle

and he gladly went

"King is a girl's name."

Corrupting attack
Enryb-Eel dark orc Once an unusually honourable orcish archer, legends proclaim that he took down even the most powerful minion of chaos with his deadly quarrels to save his kin. Now after spending too long in the depths of the corrupting caves, he has tragically succumbed to horrifying madness. Don't turn your back on him. Regenerates, teleports
Feefers rabid dog (female) A large vicious dog of the Vizsla breed, a dirty collar indicates it was once owned and trained as an attack hound, it has however turned feral. Unknown
Felix Eskubar, the bard of Araqypa cutpurse The pungent smell of cheap mead and sweat greets you before you even lay eyes on this louse. But something seems familiar about this wino. Oh gods, this cannot be! Is this Felix Eskubar, the great bard, who once serenaded the fair maidens of Borumia tower? This washed up drunk is a poor imitation of his former self. The tattered clothing and shambling gait might inspire pity were it not for the vicious gleam in his eyes. Whoever this man used to be is unimportant. Today he wants your money. Unknown
fLuFfY wild cat Before you sleeps an adorable little kitten... or so you thought, at first. Then one horrible eye opens and meets yours with a purple gleam, a mouth full of black, razor sharp teeth yawns, and the ground rumbles with a deep, fell growl... Corrupting touch
F'rank flesh golem This flesh golem seems almost sentient, and you are sure you can detect words in its groans. It is huge and slow, but incredibly hardy. Electrical sparks jump between metal bolts on its neck. Regenerates Appears to be a reference to Frankenstein's Monster
Frog Prince giant frog What an ugly water-splasher. Its face looks flattened. It's as if the frog had been thrown a little too hard against a wall. Although with a frog that massive, it's hard to imagine anything other than a titan ot moloch doing the throwing Summons, karmic being, drops treasure
Fulgur the Corrupted dark sage You face a small man with big eyes, in which insanity flickers. You've heard of him -- his stories are passed down in Drakalor Chain. Unfortunately, the forces of Chaos caused him to lose a grip on his own mind and he can no longer distinguish between his imagination and the reality. You remember all those monsters that appeared in his stories, and you think you can see their shadows in his deep blue eyes... Blue lightning attack (like kobold shamans), summons monsters, drops treasure(?)
Gaelwynn the Unlucky swordsman This human seems to have seen better days - his armor is battered, his sword notched, and his eyes hold the bitter look of someone always one step behind. Life has thrown a lot at him... Watching you tiredly, he readies his weapon and prepares to overcome yet another challenge. Drops treasure (including a blessed PoGA), reduced movement energy cost (possibly)
Galeon Sysi master swordsman Middle aged, quite slender human with dark long hair. He is dressed on plain clothes and sturdy boots. Even on hottest of summer days, he's tightly wrapped into a ragged, but quite warm looking cloak. He's carrying a worn sword with a confidence stemming from years of training. On his face, there's a somewhat haunted look of someone fleeing unavoidable fate. From his weary look and various pieces of equipment hanging from his large backpack it seems clear he's been on the road for quite a long time. Regenerates, bypasses PV, drops treasure
Gorvin the hurthling necromancer Necromancers are scary in and of themselves, but it makes you wonder what made a hurthling twisted enough to become an evil summoner of the dead. Unknown
Grakkus lizard man A rare desert lizardman. He appears to throw spears using his tail like a third arm.

Throws spears? (doesn't seem to work)

Gregor the Mighty goblin berserker The goblin berserker's body glows in a brilliant blue hue from head to toe. Cone of cold spell (similar to ogre magus ability)
Grilka troll (female) Clad in black leather, this troll has the appearance of an assassin, wielding two daggers that glisten with a strange liquid. Poisons, regenerates
Groc fire giant Groc was once a chieftain of a small clan until adventurers forced him to leave the Tower of Eternal Flames after destroying his clan in their reckless attempts to brave its fiery depths. Now Groc wanders searching for fool-hardy adventurers in the hope to slay all who hurt innocent giants. Regenerates
Groof Goblin A small filthy creature. Poisons, slows
Gworth wolf This canine is larger than most dogs, with wild matted hair and long, sharp teeth. It looks lean and fast, a bundle of hungry ferocity ready to run down its prey. This creature of darkness almost looks as if shadows themselves lurk within it! Casts darkness
Harker outlaw A tall fellow dressed completely in black, with a well crafted lute in his hands. The soft tones of his song sound strangely intriguing and you find that you listen more and more closely... Confusion spell, drops treasure (a lute)
Hodge green hag Hodge is a decrepit old hag, dressed in tattered rags. Stringy unwashed hair dangles in clumps around her skull, with severely sunken eyes glaring at you from beneath layers of grime and dirt. She smells like a bath was taken some time in the last century, the aroma alone causing your eyes to water. Unknown
Hobbynobs hobgoblin The ugly hobgoblin looks crafty and sly. He seems to be the kind of hobgoblin who delights in stealing important artifacts and killing innocent puppies. Casts invisibility
Huckree goblin You see a rather excited goblin hauling a giant backpack stuffed to the brim with gold and treasure. The goblin is cackling wildly while looking at his loot. What vile deeds did he have to commit to acquire this hoard. Drops treasure
Hydroxy gremlin All gremlins are born of water, but this particular one is born of a strange corrosive liquid. It smells like a terrible housecleaning reagent. Its eyes burn red and frothy foam spits hateful bubble from its pockets. Unknown
Idle Soul shadow Living is troublesome. Dying is troublesome too. Of course going to heaven is also troublesome. Do you have to rush off? It's time for rest, till your soul corrupted! Corrupting attack, confusion spell
Izindi fairy dragon  (female) A merry laugh, and a tiny creature of good humor flickers in and out of view. Who can tell, if it has been a century or longer since this little cute dragon girl has been coming of age. Playful magic emanates from her eyes, touching the fabric of the universe here and there, maybe a little bit too careless for your taste. Now she looks at you with interest... Casts invisibility, teleports, summons
Jo'ohr kobold shaman (female) Among the kobolds, few are called to shamanic arts. Of those shamans, fewer can master anything but the simplest of magics. The being that stands before you carries itself with more poise than any other kobold that you have seen and is bedecked with trinkets, totems and sigils. You wonder, maybe this could be one such shaman? Confusion spell
Kevin Gillese hill giant This lumbering beast grips his stomach as he stumbles forward. You can hear him mumble "shouldn't have had the curry". Fire breath attack
Khazgar the Belligerent orc scorcher A huge orc, flushed red and stinking of rotgut. He carries a burning mace in one hand and a jug of orcish liquor in the other. Fire breath attack
Kolvinfirmesestron least daemon  (female) Verily an unearthly sight, this faceless monster hails from the outskirts of known civilization. It's hard to tell what's more unsettling, the foul smell of salty swamps permeating the air in its vicinity, or the resonant, eerie hum the creature unceasingly utters. Even nastier, though, is the deadly breath, a burning spray which melts with ease the flesh of the foolish who step in its way. Acid breath attack
Kor Pubis fire giant This fire giant seems to be shunned by its own kin. Having lost her only friend, her mind is dazed with blacksmithing obsession. Now that you've intruded in her domain, she comes forward, swinging her trusty hammer and anvil. Drops treasure (huge iron hammer and anvil) See fortune cookie message list for reference to her friend (Stoma Pubis)
Krabhs dark sage This sage's research into extraplanar abominations have warped his brain beyond salvation. His face is a matted tangle of hair and beard, but his eyes shine through -- red-rimmed and piercing, they belie utter madness. Confusion spell
Leibowitz orc scorcher This orc is very small and weak compared to it's brethren. It also looks pretty confused. Confusion spell
Le-yala-a chaos sister No description Strength draining touch
Maija female wild cat This blue-eyed white cat seems to be able to push its way through even the smallest cracks in the walls with ease. Her intense gaze seems to tell you it would be dangerous to try to harm her... Passes through walls
Mar "The Fiery Kraken" fire vortex Before you stands a humanoid manifestation of elemental energy, it is unmistakably Mar, "The Fiery Kraken". Mar is an inferno of hate, burning fiercely in a multitude of erratic colour. Gangly limbs extend as if pulled from their sockets and trash at you with ill-meditated direction. An unrelenting screech shokes the air, and Mar approaches... Bypasses PV
Maze Master ratling warrior This misshapen master of the ratling warrens beckons you to join his convoluted pursuit of the TwIsTeD ArTs. Gaze not too deeply into his twisted eyes unless you intend to follow him to the Gates themselves. What pacts he has made, surely he will use the gifts to thwart you, whether you be a rival or opponent. Corrupting attack, confusing touch
Meat-Bix hill giant A magnificent specimen of a hill giant. He is best described as a wall of hairy muscle, however, this wall can cross the room in one step and lazily backhand you through two closed doors. Somewhere within this meaty edifice is also a hill giant of considerable intellect trying to get out. Meat-Bix can count to ten in a staggering forty seconds. Unfortunately, this additional processing power comes to little use when most obstacles faced can still be solved by destroying, dismembering or digesting the problem at hand. Unknown
Missan wild cat A fairly large gray cat with black markings. It looks so furry and cute you just wanna pet it; too bad it's got claws like fishhooks and is spitting in fury. It comes knee high to you, with a very furry face and no tail, much like the common lynx. It shouldn't be that much of a problem unless your back is turned... Unknown
Nagrat ogre The beast before you is a solid wall of thick muscles from head to toe. His skin is drawn tight across his body exposing the muscles and thick rope like veins. Many scars are visible along the arms of this ogre which, combined with the blood and the aroma of rotting flesh leave you with the impression he will not be easily overcome. Unknown
Nanji troll Just as large as an ordinary troll, but somehow not as ugly. You see him eyeing your equipment with a look of disgust in his eye. He raises his hand, drops some kind of powder and suddenly is shrouded in darkness. He silently slips into the shadows - waiting. Casts Darkness, sees in darkness
Nezic lich A powerful undead creature that has clung to existence with dark magic, insisting with malevolent force that others feel the anguish it refuses to acknowledge for itself. Limbs with dried, tattered flesh beneath a terrible skeletal visage are barely visible from within a lush, flowing robe. The garment’s impeccable condition may be due to vain magic, or merely a recent acquisition from some poor soul who's life now sustains this once-man. Unknown
Nuin doppleganger This was a warrior from a long forgotten epoch that was trying to please others too much. He was cursed and turned into the doppelganger that takes the form of passing travellers and preys on them. Corrupting attack
Ok-Ku-Lu ogre magus He has the lunatic stare of someone tortured by the forces of Chaos. The tattoos on his body shift and transform in dizzying patterns. You find it difficult to focus your eyes on him. Corrupting attack
Okla troll (female) While it is not as large and stinky like any other troll, and carries on just small dagger instead of two handed club, this one has much eerier look and a ... lute. Your instant feeling is you don't really want to hear it sing... Drops treasure (a lute)
Penumbra black wizard This dark magic-user's features are completely obscured by robes that appear to be made entirely out of shadows. Dark energies poor (sic) from his sleeves, absorbing the light around him. Teleports, casts darkness
Perseus troll berserker This huge, trollish creature radiates ancestral presence. It is covered in long, thick, flea-ridden fur. The creature looks sluggish, yet you sense an oddly dangerous aura. Unknown
Rakki ratling thief Hobbled by a crippled leg earned on the job, Rakki devised a new method of escaping after he relieves his victims of their coinpurses. Unknown (often 'invokes incantations' but nothing happens; presumably teleports, based on description)
Reyals Boona, Shadow Strider assassin A treacherous cutthroat, Reylas Boona is infamous throughout Ancardia. He wears a thick cloak of such midnight black it is hard for you to tell where his form ends and the darkness begins. When you see the blade of writhing shadows in his grasp, you wonder if there is truth to the tales that he can walk from one shadow to a distant one. One thing is for certain, as he approaches, you can tell his sanity has not remained intact through his many shadow jaunts. The hollow echoes of giggles, dripping with maddened mirth are proof enough of that. Regenerates
Roland, Last of the Old-Mobbe black wizard As the armies of Ancardia slew his clan, Roland, last of his kind, retreated with the wealth of his people to the sugar caves of Tin-ton Falls to master the dark arts. As the days passed his anger turned his soul to blackest ebony. Revenge on those above will be his....beginning with you. Casts invisibility


Schrodinger wild cat This cat seems to be alive and angry - very angry Passes through walls Reference to Schrödinger's cat
Scratch ratling thief You see a long-haired grubby ratling thief doubled over beneath the weight of an enormous sack on his back. More than twice his size, the sack bulges uneasily as he heaves it along. Out of the top of the sack poke two legs of a card table and what appears to be a roulette wheel. With each step he takes, you hear a small squeak. Suddenly, you realise he's not carrying the sack, but lugging it along rusty castors almost buried beneath it. His gnarled fingers shakes as he reaches for a weapon. Dice, gold coins, and playing cards spill out from his coat. For a brief moment, he is concerned, then promptly resumes his panicked approach, eager to protect whatever's in that huge sack. Drops treasure (gold)
Shardik grizzly bear An oversized menacing bear, His eyes full of intelligence, heart full of hatred for the "fire-starters" that molest his territory. Shardik is easily recognized by his adamantium cap sitting atop his head. Drop treasure (adamantium cap)
Shhasum red baby dragon Unknown Teleports
Sheelak The All-Seeing eye of destruction Sheelak is an ancient being that devours the soul energy of the unfortunate.

His enormous bulbous form hovers silently above the ground and grotesque bloodshot stare locks unflinchingly on his victims. An terrible aura of silence washes over those Sheelak gazes upon!

Confusion spell
Shiv Mi Kook berserker emperor No description Unknown
Sir Niveous Frost wererat An albino wererat. Firstborn of Count Edmund Frost. He lost his birthright to the curse of the Rat. Unknown
Soladnit hell hound Seeming to emerge from the cracks of the walls and floor, it is apparent that this is no ordinary hell found. Soladnit is not hindered by brick or stone, and you have a strange feeling that this entity has been seeking you out for your entire life. Passes through walls Likely a reference to Hounds of Tindalos
Stiikkeli blink dog (female) A poet once described blink dogs thus: "a head like a snake, a neck like a drake, a back like a beam, the sides of a bream, footed like a cat and a tail like a rat". Unfortunately he left out their tendency to extreme halitosis. Acid breath attack The description refers to a 1486 poem about a greyhound, by Julian Berners
Stony Jouny stone golem Made of stone. Lives in and off the stones. Digs through walls
Sueddi wild cat He looks like a stray cat in a black hat. Invisible, teleports
Taz wight Something about this wight is different from the ones you've encountered before. It has the same talons, razor-sharp teeth, and stench of decay as any other wight, but its eyes show an unexpected... cunning that is out of place in any unsophisticated undead. Maybe there is more to this creature than meets the eye. Regenerates
Tarmo the Foolish minotaur At first glance you mistake this creature for one of the undead. The skin is torn and rotten and nearly all the creature's fur has fallen out. As it shuffles on torn and rotting muscles, you see that it still yet breathes. You know not what disease or curse has afflicted this being, but the pain has driven it mad. Now it seeks only to make others suffer as it does. Unknown (sickness-inducing attacks?)
The Grayman gray slayer This servant of balance is the oldest and most elite of his order. He is smaller and somehow more boring and unremarkable than a normal gray stalker. You might even feel safe in his presence if you didn't know that he had slain thousands and thousands of the most powerful enemies of balance. Nothing gets between him and his target as he learned long ago to become ethereal at will. His favorite way to dispatch his foes is to stab them through a wall without them ever noticing his presence. Passes through walls
Thog, the educated neanderthal caveman Thog isn't like those other caveman - he's intellectual, cultured, refined. Thog has read the Collected Works of Confucious cover to cover and even studied at the sinister library. But those pursuits grew boring after a while, and now he wants to put his arcane knowledge through some... field research. As he eyes you across the rom, muttering dark and cryptic formulae, you think you can guess who he's chosen as his guinea pig. Melee confusion attack (similar to dopplegangers)
Tikbuz kobold "Keep away from my artifacts! These are for research purposes, I swear!" The short kobold (even for kobold standards) is wearing a wide-brimmed hat that's too big for his head and is grasping a rolled-up parchment that appears to be some sort of map. The haversack on his back seems to be filled to the brim. He insists that he won't hurt you if you stay away from him, but the leather whip he's brandishing would make you think otherwise. Drops treasure (several items including a whip)
Thrask vampire No description
Tycho living wall Watching its black, extremely flat, non-reflective surface feels like staring in to the night sky, except there are no stars. Its proportions are much too regular to have spawned from this world. You suddenly feel very alone. The feeling only lasts for a moment, for soon a feeling of terror comes upon you as you sense the entity's energy focusing on you... Energy blast
Varenes Ghost You meet Varenes, the ghost. The ghost of a long-dead soldier, Varenes stalks the location of his demise. His countenance is grim, and death has not dulled his skill with a blade. A shroud of darkness precedes him as he approaches you. Casts Darkness
Varkoill shadow troll There was once a troll who decided to never commit any chaotic acts. His shadow did not agree, and decided to live as a separate, evil being. Casts darkness, karmic being
Water Spider Assault Unit large spider It's not just a common spider, it's a large spider from the Water Spider Assault Unit! Water breath attack Likely a reference to Ninja: The Final Duel
White-Mask ratling thief Before you stands a male ratling dressed in dark clothes, wearing a white mask that completely covers his face. He carries an ornate rapier, and his steps show the grace of an experienced fencer -- or cat-burglar. From behind his mask, dark eyes size you up suspiciously. You can't quite shake the feeling that you've seen this ratling before... Unknown
WhOsEzNi chaos knight Once a keeper of the sacred words, driven insane by the forces of chaos and doomed to babble incoherent phrases. Unknown A reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Woogie hill orc The hill orc lacks the angry, vacant stare of his compatriots. His eyes are focused, mindlessness replaced with a brilliant insanity. Regenerates, corrupting attack
Wor Janoth black hurthling A warped hurthling, small and terrible. He trails ash and cinders when he moves, and his eyes gleam with madness as his powers reach out to engulf you. Confusion spell, sees through invisibility One of the statues in the Bug Temple is dedicated to Wor Janoth, a hurthling mindcrafter.
Workaka carrion crawler  (female) It's hard to believe that such disgusting creature exists. This dark-green centipede-like beast possesses dangerously looking claws that seem to be made of some outworldish metal rather than chitin. They are covered with a layer of thick gray slime. Poisons, ignores armor
Wrolgrim wolf You gaze upwards into the slavering jaws of the biggest wolf you've ever seen. It's eyes glow with insane rage. It eyes you oddly, and you realise that it views you not as an adversary, but as lunch! Unknown
Zebo blink dog It can be difficult to ascertain this creature's features -- even when it is not teleporting vast distances across the landscape, it is often shifting position distractingly. When it is merely loping, it becomes possible to distinguish its streamlined canine features, Its bright yellow fur (and of course its lack of respect for inertia) distinguish it from lesser beasts. Much like its faithful companions, this muscular canine's features are difficult to comprehend as it shifts position constantly. However it is much larger than the dogs in its pack, and seems to focus more intently on you. Its eyes shimmer with barely-controlled anger. Unknown
Zombos steel zombie A menacing zombie, with fearsome plated armour bolted and nailed directly into what remains of its dead flesh. There is fury and fire in its eyes, and up close it radiates heat, as if there is an actual fire burning inside its decaying form. No one knows where this monster came from or how it came into being, but you will hear terrified whispers and surely nonsensical tales from travellers, that this fire-breathing, steel plated, undead nightmare is the Lord of the Undead, King of the Zombies. Fire breath attack
Zukkle acid vortex  (female) Invisible


claw bug (female) No description Disarms
