Ancient karmic dragons are a rare and powerful random monster in ADOM. They are notable for their ability to breathe various energy bolts, their resistance to all elements, and being a karmic being. They thus can only be safely attacked with missiles, Magic Missiles or mindcraft; since apart from having an extremely powerful melee attack, attacking them in melee can result in reduced luck for the PC.

They are guaranteed to leave a pile of random items when killed.

Monster memoryEdit

Brightly shimmering scales cover the massive body of this creature, and four legs broader than any you have seen before support it, a mighty tail swishing behind it, slicing the air like a giant blade. Eyes as deep as the great rift itself regard you, boring into your soul as it considers you with a cold intelligence.
