Quickling queen is a type of monster in ADOM. They are extremely nasty late game monsters that have truly incredible speed, and not only are guaranteed to injure the PC if their attack lands but each attack also poisons. When fighting a quickling queen the PC can end up receiving several counts of poisoning each turn, which can lead to catastrophic results if not cured quickly enough. Since they are extremely evasive and tend to stay out of melee range after attacking, PCs are advised to try to take them with whatever magic they have (even if they rely primarily on melee combat). Archery is also an option... if the PC is an extremely good shot.

A quickling queen is guaranteed to appear in the Quickling Tree, guarding the boots of great speed.

Special abilitiesEdit

Common statsEdit

Level: 1, DV: 60, PV: 0, Hits: 5, Attacks: 1, Damage: 1-4. Speed: 1200.

Corpse effectsEdit

Eating quickling royalty increases the PC's speed, but also reduces their maximum age by 20%. However, PCs will not die of old age until they reach the 'very old' age category, even if their "maximum" age is below that. This is a good trade-off for longer-lived races, but somewhat risky for short-lived races (especially if relying on potions of longevity to increase maximum age).

Monster memoryEdit

Seeming a petite blur, the quickling queens are much revered for their clear vision and rapidity of thought. These queens are not only creatures of speed and observation, but have a sharp sting of their own, injecting enemies with poisons as swift as their thoughts.
