The minotaur emperor resides on the lowest level of the Minotaur Maze. He has very powerful melee attacks, and is best engaged from a distance with spells, missiles or mindcraft. He is always guarded by four minotaur mages.

When killed he drops the axe of the minotaur emperor, 2-4 potions of cure corruption, a potion of strength, 0-3 potions of gain attributes, 1-3 spellbooks, 0-1 random artifacts, and his corpse. Killing the minotaur emperor adds an achievement line to the player's end of game log file.

A wish for "minotaur emperor" will instead result in a horde of hostile minotaur kings being summoned.

Monster memory[]

The ultimate in the bovine form, this powerful beast was once a king who won his position through subtlety and strength, defeating the former emperor to become the heart of the maze. Truly the master of horn and hoof, he is faster, trickier, and more dangerous than any other bovine on Ancardia. It is said that this beast's powers are linked to the maze, each feeding the other, granting the emperor a lifespan and abilities far beyond the others of his race.
