Black Salamander


This unit is from The Era of Magic. Its coding and art were done by inferno8.

The Black Salamanders are assassins of sorts, attacking in the dead of night or from the shadows. Besides wrist blades, they use throwing knives dipped in poison. Those that survive the encounter, tell a tale of fighting off what seemed to be a relentless red-eyed demon. Their skills, equipment, and terror-inspiring appearance make Black Salamanders an opponent whose presence should not be taken lightly.

Special Notes: If there is an enemy of the target on the opposite side of the target while attacking it, this unit may backstab, inflicting double damage by creeping around behind that enemy. This unit is able to hide at night, leaving no trace of its presence. The victims of this unit’s poison will continually take damage until they can be cured in town or by a unit which cures.
