Trunk-only: This article pertains to a feature of Crawl which is being tested. It will likely change before the next release, and may even be removed entirely.
Lehudib, whose famous writings on earth magic left few personal details, is said to have studied the power of magical crystal with single-minded devotion and in the most distant location imaginable. After traveling to some forgotten Moon and carving a fortress into its very surface, the wizard somehow convinced the bizarre surface creatures there to stand guard. Who can say what other knowledge this self-described Lunar Mage learned in such isolation? Adventurers who manage to reach the remote Moon Base of Lehudib may indeed find powers beyond their comprehension.

Lehudib's Moon Base is a Wizard Laboratory, themed as the remote hideout of the famous earth mage Lehudib. You'll find earth and crystal themed monsters typically seen in Vaults or Depths, as well as eye monsters found in the Slime Pits and space-themed Abyss monsters. After taking the passage you find at one of four locations on the map, you'll face the legendary Moon Troll.

You'll find random loot at the portal locations as well as a large pile near the Moon Troll. Also near the Moon Troll is an artefact spell book named after Lehudib with a theme of earth magic and one of Transmutations, Conjurations, or Translocations; this spellbook always contains the spell Lehudib's Crystal Spear.

Zot statue.png lunar statue - This is a statue enemy with Lehudib's Crystal Spear as well as Shadow Creatures but is otherwise identical to an orange crystal statue. It guards a single acquirement-level item.

Subguardians

Any of these four monsters can be found at the possible portal locations:

8 Crystal guardian.png Crystal guardian

D Quicksilver dragon.png Quicksilver dragon

* Wretched star.png Wretched star

9 War gargoyle.png War gargoyle

Final Guardian: Moon Troll

Moon Troll.png This is a fast version of an Iron troll, with more hit dice, that can cast the Singularity spell. It always wears Moon troll leather armour if this item hasn't generated, otherwise it wears artefact-quality Troll leather armour. It's wise to be hasted and use your strongest attacks as the Moon Troll has considerable AC, multiple melee attacks, and has smite targeted damage through its spell.
