Dark elven priestess is a type of monster in ADOM. They are most notable for their ability to summon hordes of large spiders, which can be a significant problem for early game PCs lacking decent armor and/or poison resistance, and a nuisance for all other PCs. They are also notable for their melee attack, which can not only corrupt the PC but sometimes even paralyzes him/her. Like most dark elves they ignore webs.

A dark elf with spider emblems covering her skin and clothing. The elves of the underground have long worshipped the spider Goddess, and so her priestesses, dark in heart as in skin, keep Her servants close in body as well as heart.

Alternative description

A priestess of the spider goddess, she can call upon aid to the arachnids. The ceremonial robe is caked with blood, for her cult constantly requires sacrifices, and the priestesses are also taught in the arts of battle.
