Agony Ant

The Agony Ant has a weak bite, but an annoying stun. Its final act is a rumour of some description.

It is not our business to teach persons how to evade the laws. We could imagine circumstances where we might, in confidence, impart the coveted knowledge, but we would rather not be asked.

Bobby On The Beat

Bobbies on the Beat are a rare type of Kop that randomly spawn in pairs. They have a Watchman-like function. If they witness the player character commit any infraction, they will call the Kops. Infractions include any act of Dungeon destruction, or the Bobby being attacked, or actually any fighting ("disorderly conduct"). Bobbies on the Beat on a level can be heard to make such remarks as

"'Allo 'allo 'allo, what 'ave we 'ere then?"
"You can't park here, Sir / Madam." 
"Oi! You're nicked, Sunshine!"  

Chatting elicits standard Watchman conversation.

A word of advice, Durk: It's the Mesolithic. We've domesticated the dog, we're using stone tools, and no one's naked anymore.

Engineering. No casualties, captain, but trouble aplenty with the engines. Every dilithium crystal connection smashed in the warp engine circuitry.

Filth Beatle

The Filth Beatle is something of a crossover from the Music Monsters. Its nip is more of a nuisance, leading to perceptual problems.

Como banana, biscoito e engulo caroço até me engasgar.
Faço minhas macacadas, rolou batucada eu vou me acabar.
Bolsa brilhante, relógio, não marque bobeira que eu pego pra mim.
Vamos plantar bananeira, jogar capoeira cantando assim
Ae, ae!

Orchaealogist

This tunnelling type of orc shaman digs in random directions, picking up loot. Different from other tunnelling monsters, 50% of the time an orchealogist will dig down to create a pit. If they find themselves in a pit without status afflictions, they are 95% likely to jump out. If in a pit with status afflictions (e.g., blind, frightened), they are only 5% likely to jump out. Otherwise they dig a hole. They are mainly a nuisance because of digging pits and holes.

Is this quest bugged? I talked to the orc, conviced him of showing me where the grave is. He starts running, then sits down, and tells me its right in fron of his feet, but there is no grave there. Is the quest bugged or something?

Phone Zombie

Phone zombies are both blind and invisible. Interestingly, their invisibility is mediated by a rare spell called "it believes it is invisible". Phone zombies carry a special type of mirror. Bumping into a phone zombie will anger it. Any nymph that is killed with a mirror in its inventory has a 2% chance to rise as a phone zombie. Any h, k, n, o, C, G, H, K, N, O, Q, T, or @ that is killed on a level where there has been a phone zombie has a 50% chance to spawn a phone zombie from its corpse after 1d12 turns.

Enough of Hong Kong's mobile phone zombie menaces to society.
It’s time to take matters into our own hands to shock these public nuisances out of their reverie and back into the real world.
