Further Spriggans?

Screenshot proof I was lately playing 0.11.2 when I encountered this nice little guy, pictured in screenshot clipping. So the list has to be completed by one more? Surely a rare one. -- Bwijn 22:10, 24 March 2013 (CET)

That spriggan baker is an example of a "variant monster", which is a slightly altered version of a normal monster that is found in specific vaults. Other examples of variant monsters include the sickly mermaids you sometimes see in sewers, the deformed humans/orcs/elves in Cigotuvi's Fleshworks, and the hungry kobolds and captive young halflings you sometimes see around a campfire on D:1.
None of those variant monsters get their own articles -- instead, they are each covered in their own seperate section of the articles for the base monster type, and we've already covered spriggan bakers on the page for normal spriggans --spudwalt 23:19, 24 March 2013 (CET)
You are certainly right about "variant monster". Except that these "baker huts" are part of the main dungeon. I assume they are alike the merfolk houses and the occasional subterranean farms part of the effort to provide necessary nutrition for non-carnivores. -- Bwijn 23:29, 24 March 2013 (CET)
