|Examine|| A pile of old barbarian bones.|
Barbarian skeletons are initially non-aggressive skeletons scattered around the Ancient Cavern. There are, in total, three skeletons that can be rummaged throughout the ground floor of the cavern.
- One is near a skeleton thug. Use Protect/Deflect Magic as there are some brutal green dragons nearby.
- One is near the waterfiends near the staircases. Use of Protect/Deflect magic then Protect/Deflect range should be used.
- One is right between the confused and lost barbarians. Players should use Protect/Deflect Magic as the passage the confused barbarian is in is not safe, and there are several brutal green dragons near it.
Messages and rewards when rummaging skeletons:
"You rummage in the sharp, slimy pile of bones in search of something useful..."
- "...you find something and stow it in your pack." (Or, if the inventory is full, "...you find something, but it drops to the floor."). Items that may be found include:
- "...the bones object." One of the following barbarian skeletons will appear and attack (Protect from Melee is effective against them):
- "...but there's nothing remotely valuable." Nothing was found.
When rummaged, the pile of bones disappear. It respawns after about two minutes. If a skeleton heavy or hero appears when it was rummaged, the heavy or hero disappears when the pile of bones respawns.
Be aware that rummaging a skeleton may result in the player taking 2000 or more damage.
