Moth of suppression
For a list of all arthropods, see list of arthropods.
| An ill, greasy-looking moth, fluttering wanly in the stale air. The atmosphere in its vicinity seems to shimmer with a dull, dusty haze. Regarded as a nuisance, these creatures were driven from the surface centuries ago due to their naturally inhibitive effect on magical items in their vicinity.
“Everybody knows there is no fineness or accuracy of suppression; if you hold down one thing, you hold down the adjoining.”
Moths of suppression are weak flying insects with a unique disabling power. At all times, they emit a suppression aura that disables most of the effects of your magical weapons, armour, and items. Although they're fairly harmless on their own, their presence in a fight with more dangerous enemies can severely handicap you. They can be occasionally found in the Spider's Nest.
Tips & Tricks
- When encountered in the Spider's Nest, realize that your magical sources of poison resistance will suddenly stop functioning. Consider quaffing a potion of resistance if you don't have the resistance naturally.
