Grudge Patch v1.5

Download patch

This simple patch allows various monsters to attack certain other types of monsters without prior provocation (i.e. they just don't like each other.) (Currently the Dev Team only provides for this behavior in the case of a purple worm attacking a shrieker.)
This patch doesn't change bones/save file compatability.

Grudge pairings added in this patch:

  • Quest guardians (not leader) vs. hostile monsters
  • Angels vs. demons
  • Elves vs. orcs
  • Woodchucks vs. the Oracle

  • Since the Oracle doesn't directly attack, the patch also extends the Oracle's passive attack to affect monsters (with YAFM for woodchucks).

    Grudge pairings considered but rejected:

  • Dogs vs. cats
  • Cats vs. rats
  • Birds vs. snakes
  • Croesus vs. gold golems
  • Prisoners vs. hostiles
  • Version information
