Annis hags are a fairly rare type of monster in ADOM. They have the ability to cast spells that curse the PC or a random piece of his/her equipment. They are somewhat tough compared to some other early-to-mid game monsters and are resistant to magic, making them tricky to kill quickly before they can use their annoying magic.

Special abilities[]

  • Casts curse
  • Occasionally shrugs bolts and other resistible magic

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 20, PV: 6, Hits: 89, Attacks: 2, Damage: 9-16. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

Eating a hag curses the PC. An extra Mana point might also be granted, but usually is not worth the exchange should it occur.

Monster memory[]

This blue-faced crone is possessed of supernatural strength. Children are kept from wandering too far by warnings that the black annis hag may at any moment leap from a cave crafted by her own terrible fingernails and devour them. Her shambling gait hides her fearsome power.
