“In Sparkill buried lies that man of mark
Who brought the Obelisk to Central Park,

Whose name supplies the long-sought rhyme for ‘orange.’”
-Arthur Guiterman, “Local Note”. 1934.


Useful Info

Orange demons are melee-based tier-4 demons with reaching sting attacks that poison and weaken you. They are found in the Abyss, Pandemonium and the Hellmouth variant of Lair:8. They can be summoned by other monsters through the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

They aren't very dangerous for even moderately well-armoured characters, but if you end up in the Abyss far too early, remembering that they can't fly might make escape a little easier. In general though, try to avoid fighting anything dangerous while weakened.

History

Prior to 0.13, orange demons lacked reaching and inflicted dexterity damage instead of weakness.
