Pyrta aths envelop your head in an attempt to smother you. In six turns, you'll be smothered and die. In addition, attacking a pyrta ath on your head will damage you as well.


If you're grabbed by a pyrta ath, your options to escape:

  • teleport yourself or the pyrta ath away... if possible
  • tame the pyrta ath with a scroll of alliance, scroll of wonder, or the skill of taming
  • phase using a potion of phasing or the amulet of ethereality
  • immobilize the pyrta ath with a wand of sleep or a net
  • strike it with a barbed whip
  • polymorph the pyrta ath
  • leave the level through magical means
