History

  • In 0.16 the Serpent of Hell received a considerable buff, gaining two extra heads each capable of breathing/attacking individually as well as Summon Dragon.
  • In ancient versions of Crawl, the Serpent of Hell did not appear as a unique monster, but rather as a generic dragon that could be found en masse 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 was: facing multiple 20-HD hellfire-breathing dragons at a time was often a quick death.
