Reanimated baboon skeleton
|Reanimated baboon skeleton|
|Locations||using a fossilized baboon skull with four fossilized limbs and a fossilized torso in inventory|
|Monster Parts||head, arm, leg, torso|
You place the baboon skull on the ground and set about the business of reconstructing a museum-grade baboon skeleton, imagining the kinds of awesome jobs you'll be able to get with that line item on your resume.
You grab a fossilized torso, prop it under the skull, and arrange four limbs around it. You step back to admire your handiwork, but before you can properly take it all in, the bones fuse together and the baboon sits up, breaking free of its rocky bindings with a thunderous crack.
Since there isn't a fossilized Jane Goodall nearby, you're completely unable to communicate with the thing, so you can't understand the dusty "eek ook eek" noise it makes as it advances on you. Once it throws a punch at you, you understand perfectly.
It absentmindedly scratches itself with one hand as it punches you in the <throat> with the other. Eek! Ouch! Ooh!
It removes one of its armbones and beats you about the head and neck with it. Ouch! Ow! Ooh!
It grunts as it kicks you in the <kidney>. Oof! Argh! Ow!
It beats its fists against its chest. That wouldn't be such a big deal, except it had your head in them. Oof! Argh! Ugh!
- If you do not have a fossilized necklace:
|You acquire an item: fossilized necklace|
- If your fossilized necklace is in your inventory:
You pull your necklace out of your sack and stick the tooth on it.
- If your fossilized necklace is in Hangk's:
You drop the tooth through Hagnk's mail slot, trusting him to affix it to the appropriate necklace.
- If your fossilized necklace is equipped:
You stick the tooth onto your necklace.
- If your fossilized necklace is in your display case:
You drop the tooth off at the Cannon Museum, trusting the Decent Docent to affix it to the necklace in your display case.
- If your fossilized necklace is in your closet:
- Appears on use of fossilized baboon skull with enough of the appropriate bones.
- The bones are consumed upon successful use.
- Reanimated Skeletons are nearly immune to everything, taking only 1 damage from all damage sources, except pottery weapons. The trick is to use pottery weapons, or hit them with multiple sources of physical and elemental damage, doing enough damage each round to kill them before exceeding the combat round limit. Using a mechanic with Prismatic Damage helps, as well as adding Passive Damage defenses, a combat familiar, and/or attacks that hit multiple times each round, like a Turtle Tamer's -butt combos.
- Using pottery armor and weapons will provide extra protection and overcome this monster's damage immunities.
- Funkslinging a possessed tomato, Colon Annihilation Hot Sauce and/or two cans of sterno (or some mix of such) at the beginning of combat is a very good idea.
- Additional Monster Level should be avoided in this fight, since extra HP is the last thing you want them to have.
- Never misses.
- You can ignore every problem with killing this monster by just using any insta-kill attack such as The Bomb, major yellow ray or Carbohydrate Cudgel to defeat the skeleton and add teeth to your necklace.
- Attempting to use a rusty bonesaw yields the message:
- You use the saw to try and remove some bones from your opponent, but the fossilized bones are so hard that it doesn't accomplish anything beyond dulling the saw.
