|Location||Ice Queen Domain|
|Sees in the dark?||No|
The ice queen is a unique NPC in ADOM, found ruling over her domain in the west side of the Drakalor Chain. She gives quests, each of which involves vanquishing a follower of Chaos, to PCs of lawful or neutral alignments. She will not speak with chaotic PCs, except to request that they repent their ways.
The chaos diplomat will ask the PC to kill the ice queen. She is a tough opponent, possessing a lot of hit points and being able to quickly regenerate. She is also somewhat dangerous in melee since she has a paralyzing attack that is more powerful than those used by master mimics, though at least she is not as fast as them. Her arsenal of spells includes summoning snow golems and ice statues, confusion, cursing the PC or their items, and a cone of cold spell (though the PC should already be adequately prepared for the latter). Note that fire spells cannot be used on her due to the nature of her environment, and she is immune to cold spells (as might be obvious). Offensive alchemy and the powers of the Chaos Orb of Elemental Fire may be used against her, and are extremely effective due to her vulnerability to fire. Killing her removes the icy spell that damages the PC and his/her inventory from the domain.
The ice queen is apparently the estranged wife of Yggaz, or so the fool himself claims. He will complain about her the first few times he is chatted with, giving clue to the player about her location, and will also mention her amongst his other babblings.

Corpse effects[edit source]
It is unknown if the ice queen leaves a corpse.
A being of incomprehensible beauty the freezing stare of the ice queen almost stops your heartbeat. Her skin is pure white and her eyes shine in an icy blue. White-golden locks fall to her shoulders. She is engulfed by an aura of icy might. As a visible testament to her absolute control of this icy domain she wears a magical cloak of razor sharp ice shards twirling and whirling around her, poised to shred any being that invokes her wrath. As she turns her regal gaze towards you, you wish you'd have the power to melt her frozen heart in order to be gifted with one single smile of her beautiful face - even if that were the last thing you ever were to see.
