History

  • In 0.16 the Serpent of Hell received a considerable buff, gaining two extra heads each capable of breathing/attacking individually.
  • In ancient versions of Crawl, the Serpent of Hell did not appear as a unique monster, but rather as a generic one that could be found in considerable numbers guarding the lowest level of Gehenna. While they may have had fewer HP, the fact they could appear in considerable numbers made them more dangerous than the single monster ever is: facing multiple 20-HD hellfire-casting dragons at a time was often a quick death.
