Damnation Sources for the Player
There are few methods available for players to gain access to damnation. They are all found in the late game, and usually at a heavy cost. (Call Down Damnation is not available at all.)
- Evoking the Staff of Dispater will reliably cast Hurl Damnation (Power = Evocations×8, max damage 3d57), but at a cost of 5-23 HP (average 14, but never fatal), 2-6 MP (average 4), and 100 food.
- The demonspawn Fire mutation (tier 1, rank 3) allows you to cast Hurl Damnation (damage based on XP level, max 6d28 at level 27), but at a cost of 15% of your max HP per use.
All player-launched sources of damnation require a line of sight and create an unavoidable 3×3 burst:
- Range: 7
- To-Hit Number: (20+(Power/10))
- Damage: calc_dice(3, 10 + (Power * 3) / 4)
Some monsters (typically demons) possess damnation resistance, rendering them immune to damage from damnation. Players cannot acquire damnation immunity, and the only available method for reducing damnation damage is the damage-shaving ability of deep dwarves.
