Goblin slavemaster is a type of monster in ADOM. Whilst not exactly one of the most dangerous early game opponents, they are still more dangerous than their monster memory description implies. Note that they look identical to the weaker goblins in (classic) ASCII mode, though they can be identified more quickly in graphical modes (in NotEye) since they are depicted carrying whips.

Goblin slavemasters sometimes drop whips when slain.

Special abilities[]


Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 13, PV: 2, Hits: 7, Attacks: 1, Damage: 2-8. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

No effect besides satiation. Goblins "don't sit well" with PCs of most races, though this has no effect on the PC or their alignment.

Monster memory[]

Rather than fighting for a chieftain, this disgusting creature traps young humanoids weaker than it and sells them on the black market. It has no qualms about selling goblin children, or relatives. On its belt is a long whip, which it uses to keep the slaves in line. A coward at heart, the slavemaster flees from adventurers, and picks on others not its size.
