Version 0.23: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

Vortices are odd phenomena that occur in certain elementally charged places or are created by spells. For the most part, they aren't overtly hostile; many of them are permanently confused and will float aimlessly about, only dealing damage when they happen to crash into something. They are all nonliving, however, and are all immune to magical effects as well as generally highly resistant to elemental magic.

List of vortices

v Spatial vortex.png Spatial vortex - A wandering tear in the fabric of space that deals heavy distortion damage to anything it bumps into.
