| An ugly thing. According to legend, this mutated creature is the otherworldly spawn of a wizard's breeding experiment. Yuck.
"Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty. One person may even perceive deformity, where another is sensible of beauty; and every individual ought to acquiesce in his own sentiment, without pretending to regulate those of others."
Ugly things are strangely-shaped, nauseating monsters that often appear in groups. They are found mid-game in the Dungeon and in some branches, particularly the Vaults. They come in a rainbow of colours, each of which has its own elemental attributes. Their attack types also vary: some ugly things bite, some headbutt, and others still will slap you with tentacles.
Ugly Thing Varieties
- u Red: Fire
- u White: Cold
- u Cyan: Electric
- u Brown: Acid
- u Green: Poison
- u Purple: Sickness
Ugly things may change color each turn they spend adjacent to other ugly things or a character with magic contamination.
Tips & Tricks
- Packs of ugly things will spontaneously change their damage and resistance types mid-fight. If you rely on elemental damage, keep track of what you're up against before attacking.
- Ugly thing corpses are mutagenic. If you happen to know the Fulsome Distillation spell you can make lots of potions of mutation from their abundant corpses. These potions are a decent last-ditch remedy for bad mutations if you run out of potions of cure mutation, or want to randomly mutate yourself until you get a good set.
