Hill orcs are monsters in ADOM. They are stronger and tougher than typical dungeon dwelling orcs. They are able to throw orcish spears as a ranged attack. They appear uncommonly in dungeons, and may be encountered in large groups along with hill orc sergeants in hilly areas in the wilderness.

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 17, PV: 4, Hits: 15, Attacks: 1, Damage: 3-14. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

Dwarves refuse to eat orcs unless they are starving. All other races can eat orcs with no ill effects. Eating hill orcs trains Toughness as well as Toughness potential, providing one of the few ways to increase Toughness well beyond its maximum available due to herbs.

Monster memory[]

This variety of orc is generally found in hilly areas, living among the rocks or in shallow caves. Rumor says they were displaced from other communities of orcs for some reason known only to them and managed to survive by displacing ogres and other strong hill dwellers. Thus they are generally stronger than normal orcs, and at least a little more stubborn.
