Slow is a creature spell available in Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2 that slows the target creature down, causing them to move and attack more slowly, putting them at a disadvantage.

Dungeon Keeper[]

"Slows down the target creature."
— Dungeon Keeper Manual

Casting the Slow spell fires a projectile that slows the target enemy creature to half their normal movement speed. The creature affected will move and attack at a slower speed and will appear with a red ring around it.

The Dungeon Keeper Goodies Disc contains wave files of Mentor dialogue that were cut from the game, one of which mentioning a 'Slubberdegullion' spell being available.[3] This is possibly this spell, or an early version of it.

In KeeperFX 1.1.0, this was made into a Keeper spell, which exists alongside the creature spell.


Dungeon Keeper 2[]

"A cunning, web-like spell that reduces the target creature’s speed, giving him or her a distinct disadvantage in combat. If the creature is currently under the Haste Creature spell, Slow nullifies its effects and returns the creature to ‘normal speed’."
— Dungeon Keeper 2 Manual

A spell unique to the Vampire, casting it fires a weblike missile towards the enemy and slows their movement and attack speeds if it hits.

Cancels Haste Self and Haste Creature.[2]
