Green hag is a type of monster in ADOM. They are annoying monsters that are not particularly strong, but can use magic to curse random items in the PC's inventory in melee range, including a girdle of carrying they might be wearing. They might occasionally target the PC with this spell instead, inflicting him/her with the cursed intrinsic should it work; this can particularly troublesome for the PC early in the game, where they might first meet green hags.

Monster memory[]

This slimy, mossy green creature may once have been a woman, but even then it could not possibly have been attractive. Now, it is consumed with vile hatred for all things. Some dark power has rewarded it with a fierce cunning and agility in return for whatever soul it may once have possessed.
