Combat Messages
  • Regular message
<name> glides silently toward your opponent and wraps his scaly tentacles around him/her/it, preventing him from attacking you.

<name>'s scaly tentacles gently caress your face.
HPYou gain some hit points.
MPYou gain some Mana Points.
<name> whispers of oblivion. Goosebumps rise on your skin, but your body and mind are soothed.
HPYou gain some hit points.
MPYou gain some Mana Points.
<name> mutters dark secrets under his breath, and you feel time slow down.
  • Enthroned in the Crown of Thrones:
    <name> does something that is too horrible to describe, for the merest inkling of it would render you insane. It's only safe to say it does 15-30 damage.
  • Bjornified in the Buddy Bjorn:
    <name> does something behind you, and from the way your opponent takes 15-30 damage, you're glad you couldn't see what it was.
  • With lucky Tam O'Shanter equipped:
<name> scuttles around beneath the Tam on scaly tentacles, looking for all the world like an evil Irish turtle.
<name> latches a tentacle onto the top of the maypole and swings in circles like some kind of horrible, evil tetherball. Which is to say a tetherball.
The wax lips churn wetly in <name>'s horrible mouth.

Notes

  • When equipped as your active familiar, you will sometimes receive unusual chat messages, such as:
    • <name> has turned against you.
    • <name> is in league with us already. <name> will kill you.
    • <name> laughs at you while your back is turned. Betrayal is inevitable.
    • <name> plots against you in secret.
    • Abandon your insignificant struggle.
    • Are you watching the stars? Yes, you watch, but you do not see. He watches. He sees.
    • Beneath your feet the sunken cities lie in wait. One day they will rise.
    • Do you trust <name>? You shouldn't.
    • Even now little <name> plots against you.
    • Everything you care for will be smothered and extinguished.
    • Futility. You live in purposeless futility.
    • The gate was open once, and it will open again soon.
    • Have you seen the look in <name>'s eyes?
    • He is watching you. He sees all.
    • He will find a way in. He will find a way in and he will kill you all.
    • His Avatar approaches.
    • Hope is an illusion.
    • The King is dead! Long live the King!
    • The shadows coalesce around you. Can you feel it? The choking, the shortness of breath?
    • Sleep with one eye open, Adventurer -- <name> does...
    • The stars are right! The end is nigh!
    • There is nobody who can help you. Nobody who can save you.
    • They are coming, from beyond the stars. There is no hope.
    • They are laughing. They are laughing at you.
    • They are waiting. Waiting to betray you.
    • They will all turn against you in the end. They will all betray you.
    • They're coming for you.
    • They're right behind you.
    • They're waiting. They're watching you. Watching for signs of weakness.
    • Those who created you will destroy you.
    • Where is little <name>? What has your little friend been up to while you weren't watching?
    • You are insignificant. Your death will be as the swatting of a fly.
    • Your fate is sealed. Your end is inevitable.

The name in the above messages is the name of one of your other familiars or a member of your contact list.

  • The word squamous means "scaly", hence the "scaly tentacles."
  • The "you feel time slow down" message occurs every 15 adventures' worth of combats, and for each time that it appears, you receive an extra adventure at rollover.
    • Underwater combats always count for 2 adventures, even with Fishy. So when using this familiar in The Sea, you will receive a bonus adventure every 7-8 combats.
  • The 15 adventure counter resets at rollover.

History

  • On October 8, 2010, Jick claimed to have implemented the double-counter for adventuring in the sea.

References

  • The default name for this familiar will always have a "Cth-" at the beginning of it, furthering the Cthulhu reference.
  • This familiar's appearance is likely inspired by the promachoteuthis sulcus squid which appears to have an unsettling human-like mouth.
  • Also resembles the gibbering mouther, a monster from Dungeons and Dragons.
