Cutpurse is a type of monster in ADOM. They are fairly weak humans that can steal the PC's gold. They are mainly found in Lawenilothehl, but may also appear in dungeons.

All gold stolen by a monster is carried by that monster and can be reclaimed by killing it, except (as of 1.2.0) when it disappears, as indicated by the message "The (monster) chuckles with hateful glee as the god of thieves immediately takes his share!"

Special abilities[]

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 17, PV: 0, Hits: 5, Attacks: 1, Damage: 4-7. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

Eating humans causes no ill effects for any races, though it makes races other than orcs and trolls "feel uneasy". A cutpurse corpse can also be given to Tywat Pare, though he only offers 5 gp for these.

Monster memory[]

This scruffy-looking townsperson moves silently around, with the grace and stealth of a stalking cat. These common thieves prowl around the cities of Ancardia, spending their lives as pickpockets instead of in honest trades. They are usually quite weak, but willing to fight if caught in the act or cornered.


This dirty creep tries to pinch other people's purses. Fortunately you've spotted her already, but she seems determined to acquire your wallet anyway, if necessary by killing you.
