Karmic dragon hatchling 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 (not to say Death Ray or Petrification won't work either... sometimes). They are able to breathe bolts of each element, and drop a pile of gold when slain.

Monster memory[]

About one and a half times the size of a man, this long-snouted creature regards you with wide eyes, its scaled skin gently shimmering between all the colors of the rainbow. Puffs of lightly colored smoke waft gently from its nostrils when it exhales, and although it seems young, it also appears quite fearsome, as upon a second examination you notice its claws and teeth.
