Farmer Maggot is a wanker.

The town needs a better class of unique. I playtested this one for a while. He makes visits to town a bit more interesting.

Code:
N:4:Frognose
G:t:U
I:140:600:60:20:5
W:0:5:0:0
B:GAZE:UN_POWER:3d3
B:HIT:UN_BONUS:3d3
B:SPORE:LOSE_ALL:3d3
B:TOUCH:EXP_10
S:1_IN_3
S:SCARE | CONF | BLIND
S:BLINK | HEAL | TELE_TO
F:IM_COLD | IM_ACID | IM_FIRE | IM_ELEC
F:UNIQUE | EVIL
D: The old men in the tavern speak of him in hushed tones. The young adventurers
D: have begun to doubt whether he ever existed.  Suddenly a shadowy form stands
D: before you.  Run while you still can!

Maybe, but I kind of thought of him as serving an educational purpose. New players need to understand as quickly as possiblie that
  • you don't want to fight everything
  • stealth is important

Well, yeah. But a starting Troll Paladin would never survive that guy, if he showed up before around cl 30, and even then, it'd be a hard, hard fight. Speed 30? Turn him into a death mold, and I can just see it.

Or just leave him in the town, but at like -2 speed or something.

Just make the dude immobile like the Caaws and give him 100d100 melee attacks

Good idea, and make him a breeder.

(Rename him Farmer Swarm o' Nether Maggots)

OK, yeah. But I think he needs better distance attacks. Just status effects won't do. Maybe Nether Ball? Or just breathe fire? There's protection available in town, from time to time for that one.

Give him Manastorms ...essentially a copy of the Ultimate Magus from PosChengband for kicks

Edit:
Perhaps we could have a variant called NoEscapeband!!
