Stone to flesh (monster spell)

Stone to flesh is a monster spell that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM, and functions similarly to the spell of stone to flesh.


The spell of stone to flesh can be used by any spellcasting monster that is at least level 5: if they are currently turning to stone (which is gradual for monsters as it is for the player) but not otherwise immobilized, they will cast the spell at themselves to cure the stoning. The spell has a random cooldown of up to 7 turns; in Hack'EM, the cooldown is extended somewhat.


The stone to flesh spell makes defeating spellcasting bosses via stoning much more difficult, but it is not impossible by any means: for example, a paralyzed or sleeping monster will not be able to prevent gradual stoning from turning them into a lifeless statue.
