Hill orc sergeants are monsters in ADOM. The sergeants are considerably tougher than regular hill orcs; and thus are much stronger than regular orcs. They are able to throw an orcish battle axe as a ranged attack. They appear uncommonly in dungeons, and may be encountered along with large groups of hill orcs in hilly areas in the wilderness. They move around in a diagonal pattern, which has the side effect of them often avoiding altars.

Monster memory[]

The most stubborn and hard-headed of the hill orcs manage to bully enough others to achieve a position of authority. These are used to getting their way and will not hesitate to use force to accomplish their will, whether against orc or any other opponent.
