A froster, @, is a Ice mage quest guardian in SLASH'EM, SlashTHEM, and Hack'EM. They are identical to igniters, the Flame mage quest guardians. Strangely, they lack cold resistance, but possess poison resistance.

Eating a froster's corpse or tin has a 13 chance of conveying poison resistance, though killing one solely to do so is a Bad Idea.


Seven frosters are generated in the home level of the Ice mage quest upon level creation, with two stationed in the "audience chamber" of the High Ice Mage's dwelling while the other five are placed randomly.
