Vulnerability is a monster spell that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM.


The spell of vulnerability can be used by any monster that can cast clerical spells and is at least level 6. When cast, an adjacent target monster becomes more vulnerable to fire, cold, shock, or acid damage for several turns, with the type chosen at random; this also suppresses any resistance the target has to that element for its duration. Kathryn the Ice Queen, Asmodeus and Vecna favor cold vulnerability and will not inflict vulnerability to fire at all.


The spell ensures that you cannot lean on resistances to completely nullify a spellcasting monster's offense.
