This misshapen humanoid has large luminous eyes from many years of living underground. It's dressed in scraps of mismatched cloth in an apparent attempt to make a crude patchwork robe. While not overly muscled, its eyes shine with a crude intelligence.

Hunting strategies

You *MUST* be quick to stun them. As a rogue ambusher, I go for a leg right off the bat. With these Shaman though, this might not happen fast or easily for the folowing reason:

The very seldom are below a defensive stance and they average a DS of 240-245!

If you remain hidden and they don't find you as they 'search' nervously, wait...they will sometimes kneel to perform some kind of prayer-like thing, or hteir spell of protection disipates, or they do one more thing I can't remember at the moment that puts them at a lower DS disadvantage. THEN you strike!

They will remain stunned for 3 or 4 rounds and you can take a head off (if ambushing).

Other information

These things cast boil earth, or make the ground shake to knock you down. They also try to hit you with their staff.

You will also get Sunfist promotion points from these things and the Grutik Savages.

Beware the ro'ater wormlings in this area!! Go read about those and why on their page.
