Priestess of Ghaunadaur

Jump to: navigation, search

The priestess of Ghaunadaur is an advanced type of drider in dNetHack that is capable of using clerical magic.

Like regular driders, priestesses of Ghaunadaur can use weapons, and have a kick attack that causes webbing. Unlike regular driders, their bite is corrosive rather than poisonous, and they have an acidic passive attack. This probably reflects their allegiance to the god of oozes.

Compare the priest of Ghaunadaur, which is an advanced shoggoth.

Encyclopedia entry

Ghaunadaur, god of fallen stars, slime, outcasts, and the
discarded, is a peripheral member of the drow pantheon.
He is worshiped mainly by disaffected drow, especially
those warped into punishment forms and exiled by Lolth.
The most powerful droven followers of Ghaunadaur are
often former priestesses of Lolth, warped into drider
form after failing one of their goddess's many tests.
