How come the colour of this was changed from blue to grey, maching the official version rather than, but other things that are black (black light, black unicorn, black pudding, strange object, orcish dagger etc.) weren't changed? --Someone Else 16:15, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Think of it as an ongoing process; if you see an inconsistently please change it. -- SGrunt 18:50, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Eating Corpse Reduces Strength

When you eat a Giant Beetle corpse as a lawful, human, Valkyrie, it reduces your strength by one.

This has happened to my (once strong) current character 3 times now! Can anyone else confirm? Is this limited by role, race, etc? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jackarow (talkcontribs)

The corpse is poisonous. This is what normally happens upon eating poisonous corpses. It will affect every race and role, but is prevented by acquiring poison resistance. -- Qazmlpok 01:42, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Large size?

It's kinda strange that these beetles have Large size despite having the same weight and nutrition as giant ants, which, relatedly, are Tiny despite also being "giant" insects. Either the beetles are very empty inside, or it's the DevTeam's oversight. Tomsod (talk) 13:50, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
