Karmic creatures are a special kind of monster in ADOM. They are notorious for the ability to reduce the Luck of a character attacking them in melee. Whenever the player does that, there is a chance the first item from the following list that would result in a change to intrinsics will occur:

  • Losing the "fate smiles" intrinsic
  • Losing the "lucky" intrinsic
  • Receiving the "cursed" intrinsic
  • Receiving the "doomed" intrinsic

Note that eating the corpse of a karmic creature is beneficial and works similarly, but in the opposite direction:

  • Losing the "doomed" intrinsic
  • Losing the "cursed" intrinsic
  • Receiving the "lucky" intrinsic
  • Receiving the "fate smiles" intrinsic


A comprehensive list of karmic creatures:

Note all but the last two of them have "karmic" in their names, and also a unique ability to change color on each turn, making recognition easy (although a PC might still attack them accidentally if their current color resembles another monster's).
