Name Figurine of a ziggurat
Icon Figurine of a ziggurat.png
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. Unlike all other evocable items, it can be evoked even after sacrificing evocations to Ru.

The treasure found within a ziggurat is often very impressive, and players may be tempted to use the figurine immediately to gain access. However, the figurine serves a surprisingly useful secondary purpose - creating a ziggurat and jumping in is a 100% effective escape route from danger, although it does take two turns to use. Just be aware that your tile must be clear, or the item will not be evoked.

The figurine is never generated as a random loot. Instead, a single figurine is guaranteed to generate on the third floor of the Tomb and the twenty-seventh floor of each ziggurat.
