Version 0.22: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Pig Form is a bad form that can be inflicted by the unique monster Kirke's Porkalator spell, by being polymorphed (whether through the spell or with the wand), or by drawing the Swine card from the Deck of punishment. Becoming a hog melds almost all equipment, suppresses mutations, and prevents spellcasting. Even characters with significant training in unarmed combat will find themselves incapable of fighting competently (though they'll have a slight advantage over others attempting to do so). The one advantage given by Pig Form is an increase to your character's base speed and evasion, improving your odds of fleeing to safety.

Pros

  • Fast 2 (movement delay 7, aka centaur speed)
  • Small size (good evasion)

Cons

  • Sets base AC to 0
  • All equipment is melded except for amulets
  • Can't cast spells
  • Unarmed Combat base damage is reduced to 1+UC/5

History

  • Prior to 0.22, you could not evoke wands while in Pig Form.
  • While Pig Form has been around as long as Kirke has, version 0.12 made it somewhat more common with the changes to the Polymorph spell.
