The dwarven mystic is a unique NPC found in Dwarftown. He is found in a 2x2 room somewhere in the city that can only be accessed by teleportation; of course, there is a 25% chance of failing to enter the room as he will always occupy one of the spaces.

The mystic can also be freed through careful use of a wand of destruction, whereupon he starts moving randomly throughout the city. He cannot be sacrificed on the altar in Dwarftown.

When 'C'hatted to, the dwarven mystic rewards the PC (or not) depending on their alignment, before disappearing.

In versions prior to 1.2.0, it is possible to wish for further dwarven mystics due to the monster type erroneously not being flagged as 'unique'[2]. When chatted with, a wished for version just proclaims "Ye art doomed!", and disappears.

Monster memory[]

This dwarf has hidden himself away from the rest of his people in order to better contemplate his religion and achieve oneness with his deity. He has a distracted, faraway look in his eyes, and he mumbles about "great power" and "waiting for the right one".
