ambulatory pirate You're fighting an ambulatory pirate

This be a pirate who long ago gave up his sea legs to wander the highways and byways of the Kingdom, roaming the earth until he gets the saltwater out of his veins and the sea out of his hearrrrt. Not a man jack be sure why he did it -- maybe he was tired of the rum, the lash, or that other thing -- I can't quite bring to mind what it be.

Anyway, he be no less likely than any other bilge rat to cut your throat and your purse strings, so be on guarrrd.

Hit Message(s):

He pegs ye in the leg with his pegleg.

He ambulates all over ye. Ye should call an ambulance.

He punches ye in the <solar plexus>. It wouldn't hurt, except he used his hook hand.

He cuts ye into cutlets with his cutlass.

Critical Hit Message:

He says, "Ah, this be the life for me. The fresh air, the dry earth, the bleeding adventurers --" Hang on, what was that last bit?

Miss Message(s):

He tries to peg ye in the leg with his pegleg, but you've read enough Dan Savage to know to avoid that.

He tries to ambulate all over you, but you perambulate away.

He tries to knock your legs out from under ye, but ye keeps your legs where they need be.

He tries to punch ye, but gets his hook hand stuck in the wall behind ye. Did I mention the wall behind ye?

He tries to cut ye with his cutlass, but it won't cut, alas.

Fumble Message:

He says, "Ye know, I feel a yearn within me for that harsh mistress, the sea. Mayhap I should return to the salty brine." You thank him for sharing. (FUMBLE!)
