Default Re: Mind Control and Body Control Spells vs Elder Things in DF

Body spells that bend, rend, manipulate, or reshape flesh work on undead made of flesh. Being immune to metabolic hazards doesn't change what materials they're made of.

Elder Things that manifest as things like humanoids with no faces or giant collections of mouths and tentacles are still made of flesh, so flesh-altering spells will still do things to them.

Casting Hunger on the Mouth of the Abyss is a bad idea, so is casting it on a vampire. And you can read the mind of an elder thing, it's just that if you get any meaningful information at all out of such an alien mind it's liable to break you - their minds are still minds.
