Study is an attack property that appears in dNetHack and notdNetHack.


You or a monster subjected to an attack with the study property will become studied - this status property increases the accuracy and damage of attacks against the target for a certain amount of turns while reducing their effective AC and damage reduction. The damage dice of a study attack determines both the amount of turns that the target is considered studied for and the amount of extra damage taken from attacks; the amount is also added as a flat bonus modifier to accuracy for monsters attacking a studied target.


Study occurs with the following attacks, weapons, spells, and items:


<Foo> studies you carefully.
<Foo> studies you with a level stare.
A monster used a studying gaze on you.
