I think they're called "the cursed" or something. In any event, has anyone killed one of these? It seems that someone lured one into the passage between the moongate and the UEV spot. I can't tell if they have a huge pile of HP, or they HLL or whatever. Also I notice that there's some message about my mana becoming corrupted, or my mana becoming linked, even if I am not meleeing them. I've whacked against one a bit with my Vampire Paladin, and sent a pile of summoned EVs against it, and never got it lower than the first sliver of red. Is there some trick to killing these things? Do they really have 20k hp, or was I under the influense of some wierd mana leech / life leech effect?
