This is a frozen ant on a stick. Oh, wait, that'd be spelled differently. This is a farm implement the ants used to use on their ant farms. It's largely been replaced by ant combines, but the ant-thropomorphic personification of Ant Death still uses it to reap ant souls. It practically glows with spookiness from beyond the ant grave. Ant ant ant.

Notes

  • If the monster does not drop Meat, you will not get the extra Meat gain.
  • Combat familiars can do their normal attacks and a sickle attack in the same round of combat.
  • Does not otherwise remove your familiars' normal abilities.
  • Familiar will make a sickle attack approximately 40% of the time.

References

  • "No anagrams, please" refers to the fact that "reaps" is an anagram of "rapes."
  • Although Death is now most often portrayed as carrying a scythe, he has also historically been portrayed with a sickle.
  • "Ant Death" is a reference to a similar construct in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series -- "Death of Rats." Also, in the series, characters like "Death of Rats" and "The Hogfather" are referred to as "anthropomorphic personifications."
