gelatinous cube This 10 by 10 room
is exactly the right size:
gelatinous cube.

A huge gleaming cube
the length and height of the hall
squishes toward you.

Hit Message(s):

It absorbs your skull.
You grab it, shove it back in.
It's really painful!
Critical Hit Message:
Squashed beneath the cube
you pray for death's sweet release
but it never comes.
Miss Message(s):
It lurches at you,
but you deftly leap aside,
and out of harm's way..
Its attack attempt
is unsophisticated
stupid, rube-ish cube.
It rolls toward you,
but you duck down a side hall
and don't get crushed/wet.
A wet pseudopod
arches out and hits the wall
just behind your throat.
Fumble Message:
The cube slides forward
misses by a country mile
Whew! what a relief!

  • The name of this monster is a reference to the Dungeons & Dragons monster of the same name. Just as in Dungeons & Dragons, the monster is described as being ten feet by ten feet.
  • The miss message about a "rube-ish cube" is a reference to the Rubik's Cube.
  • The introductory haiku refers to the skateboarding movie "Gleaming the Cube."
