“The latter lived in the country, and before his house there was an oak, in which there was a lair of snakes. His servants killed the snakes, but Melampus gathered wood and burnt the reptiles, and reared the young ones. And when the young were full grown, they stood beside him at each of his shoulders as he slept, and they purged his ears with their tongues. He started up in a great fright, but understood the voices of the birds flying overhead, and from what he learned from them he foretold to men what should come to pass.”
Ball pythons are tiny, quick-moving snakes found all throughout the Dungeon. They are extremely weak, but are capable of constricting you with their attacks, preventing you from moving and dealing minor additional damage. Fortunately, they are little and only capable of grabbing spriggans with any regularity, and any character can kill them easily.
Tips & Tricks
Don't be lulled into a false sense of security by their generally pathetic stats, if they do by chance manage to constrict you their damage will begin going up exponentially. Kill them quickly and try not to get mobbed by them while fighting other monsters.
