Jump to navigation Jump to search

An anthole is a special room filled with food items and either soldier ants, giant ants, or fire ants. The ants will be sleeping if nothing has woken them.

Generation

There is a 1/8 chance of an anthole being generated in ordinary rooms-and-corridors levels of at least dungeon level 13, which do not have a shop, throne room, leprechaun hall, zoo, temple, beehive or graveyard.[1][2]

Antholes will not be generated if ants are genocided or extinct.

Messages

You enter an anthole!

Strategy

By the time you encounter an anthole, ants will probably be easy to deal with.
