Roach eggs are monsters spawned by roach queens when they feel threatened. Roach eggs are laid every thirty turns and hatch into full roaches after five turns.

Behavior Edit

Formation Edit

Every thirtieth turn, all roach queens that can sense the player will lay roach eggs in every open space around them, with the exception of open yellow doors, scrolls, force arrows, and trapdoors. If the roach queen moved on the turn she spawned, she will not lay an egg on the tile she moved from.

Movement Edit

Roach eggs don't move.

Vulnerabilities Edit

Roach eggs are vulnerable to: Weapon strikes, Hot tiles, Drowning in deep and shallow water, Adder jaws, Puffs, Fire traps, Spikes, and Explosions.

Trivia Edit

In Webfoot DROD, roach eggs became roaches after only three turns.
