Figurine of a ziggurat
|A small figurine made of some strange material, shaped like a stepped pyramid. It is remarkably detailed – almost like a real, vast structure, shrunk somehow smaller than a human hand.|
The figurine of a ziggurat is an evocable item which creates a portal to a ziggurat upon use, being consumed in the process. A single figurine is guaranteed in the third floor of the Tomb, while a figurine generates on the last, 27th, floor of each ziggurat.
The figurine serves a surprisingly useful secondary purpose: creating a ziggurat and jumping in is an effective escape route from danger. This takes two turns, and you could even meet a pan lord on the first floor, but Zig:1 is usually safer than whatever you were fighting. Be aware that you cannot place a portal on top of some dungeon features like shops and stairs, though deep water and lava are valid tiles. This application is also limited in scope, as Tomb:3 and Zig:27 are usually reserved for the very end of a game, while this item is unable to be used in the one place done after, a ziggurat itself.
Unlike all other evocable items, it can be evoked even after sacrificing Artifice to Ru.
The figurine of a ziggurat was added in 0.18.
