The Dragon Lord commands an assorted rabble of hideous creatures, all of them evil and determined to stop you at any cost. Most species have weaker and stronger breeds, as you will see. When you fight a new enemy, study what it does and what sort of attack seems to work best.

The tables show the maximum HP damage you must inflict to defeat each monster, and how much Gold and Experience you will earn if you do. Their exact HP varies from monster to monster, and may be as low as 75% of the maximum health.

STOPSPELL is this fiend's favorite attack. When your defense is high enough they will waste attacks trying to cast it. On lower levels, though, its hitting power is scary.
