Orc scorchers are monsters in ADOM. They are somewhat common in low DL dungeon levels, and are a slightly tougher version of orcs. They are most notable for their ranged attack of throwing orcish spears — which provides the PC with useful weapons in the very early game.

Special abilities[]

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 12, PV: 1, Hits: 10, Attacks: 1, Damage: 2-7. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

Dwarves refuse to eat orcs unless they are starving. All other races can eat orcs with no ill effects.

Monster memory[]

Scorchers are fast traveling raiders, who leave nothing but death and destruction in their wake. Fear is their most effective weapon, so they paint their faces, bodies, armor and banners in garish colors with gruesome pictures spelling doom! The life devoted to killing, raping and rampaging has left its mark on their minds. Don't try to reason with a scorcher.
