Spotted Jelly damage

Every time I get splashed by a spotted jelly it does around 30 damage. Should this be 6d6 acid damage? 22:45, 22 June 2008 (UTC)Wolfgang

Good question. The answer is complex. In monst.c, the spotted jelly is listed as doing 0d6 damage; however, the zero in this case is special; monsters with a zero there do (monster level +1) dice damage; uhitm.c, line 2149. This is particular to passive attacks.
For a basic spotted jelly, this would indeed be 6d6 (an average of 21 damage). If you are getting an average of 30 damage, the jelly must be of higher level.
You might find ranged attacks more comfortable.
