Antennae is one of the 35 possible corruptions that can be inflicted on the PC. It activates at random times to reveal part of the map, as indicated by the message "You suddenly know more about your environment."


This corruption activates about once every 250 turns, revealing the map in a radius of 7 + corruptions/2 around the PC. Loss of Appearance is tolerable, so it is marginally positive. It provides a means of locating hidden dungeon features such as royal vaults without using any items.

Chaos Knights who begin with antennae do not need to worry about additional corruption removal since they are not especially detrimental.
