Giant centipede is a type of monster in ADOM. They are extremely weak insect monsters that appear early in the game. They are able to poison the PC, should their attacks manage to injure him/her.

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 12, PV: 2, Hits: 3, Attacks: 1, Damage: 1-2. Speed: 96.

Corpse effects[]

Eating a giant centipede poisons the PC and causes him/her to vomit, but also grants him/her intrinsic poison resistance. The tradeoff is definitely worth it, especially due to the danger of poisoning early in the game.

Monster memory[]

This overgrown arthropod rarely has exactly one hundred legs, as several have usually been lost while converting victims into meals. They attack with multiple legs seeking to hold their prey for a poisonous bite. Several different colors have been reported and they are rumoured to be the larval form of some other, more fearsome beast.
