Karmic dragon is a type of monster in ADOM. As karmic beings, engaging in melee with them can often have undesirable outcomes. Since they resist all elemental magical attacks, the only way of engaging them risk free is using missiles, magic missiles or mindcraft. Since they are very strong in melee, it's usually best to take them from a distance anyway. They are able to breathe bolts of each element, and drop a pile of gold when slain.

Monster memory[]

A great beast, its skin a mass of hardened scales which shimmer gently between all the colors of the rainbow, and more. Its head sits on a long neck, and is snout-shaped, with keen eyes set well back in it. Clouds of colored smoke issue forth from its nostrils as it exhales, and its powerful body stands upon four great, clawed paws, each leg at least the size of a tree-trunk.
