Version 0.18: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
Lehudib, whose famous writings on earth magic left few personal details, is said to have studied the power of magical crystal with single-minded devotion and in the most distant location imaginable. After traveling to some forgotten Moon and carving a fortress into its very surface, the wizard somehow convinced the bizarre surface creatures there to stand guard. Who can say what other knowledge this self-described Lunar Mage learned in such isolation? Adventurers who manage to reach the remote Moon Base of Lehudib may indeed find powers beyond their comprehension.

Lehudib's Moon Base is a Wizard Laboratory, themed as the remote hideout of the famous earth mage Lehudib. You'll find earth and crystal themed monsters typically seen in Vaults or Depths, as well as eye monsters found in the Slime Pits and space-themed Abyss monsters. After taking the passage you find at one of four locations on the map, you'll face the legendary Moon troll.

You'll find random loot at the portal locations as well as a large pile near the Moon troll. Also near the Moon troll is an artefact spell book named after Lehudib with a theme of earth magic and one of Transmutations, Conjurations, or Translocations; this spellbook always contains the spell Lehudib's Crystal Spear.

Moon Troll

Moon Troll.png The final guardian of the base, the moon troll is a fast version of an iron troll with more hit dice that casts Corrosive Bolt (3d21) . It always wears moon troll leather armour if this item hasn't generated, otherwise it wears artefact-quality troll leather armour. It's wise to be hasted and use your strongest attacks as the moon troll has considerable AC and multiple melee attacks. A source of corrosion resistance will reduce the damage and corrosion from corrosive bolt.
