|Blink dog (d)|
|Initially hostile?||To non-lawfuls|
|Sees in the dark?||No|
Blink dogs are fairly rare monsters in ADOM. They are commonly hunted because their corpse is the only one in the game that gives intrinsic teleport control. They have the ability to summon more blink dogs to assist them when attacked. Also, they can randomly teleport around the level.
Level: 1, DV: 15, PV: 2, Hits: 32, Attacks: 2, Damage: 3-7. Speed: 96.
Blink dog corpses grant the very useful and rare teleport control intrinsic. Many players will try to find a blink dog and let it summon in order to obtain this power. Notice that summoned Blink Dogs rarely summon more. Name the original Blink Dog so it can be recognized and keep it alive so it can summon more dogs if needed.
It can sometimes be difficult to ascertain this creature's features — even when it is not teleporting vast distances across the landscape, it is often shifting position distractingly. When it is merely loping, it becomes possible to distinguish its streamlined canine features. Its bright yellow fur (and of course its lack of respect for inertia) distinguish it from lesser beasts.
