stench skeleton You're fighting Prisoner #782303: "Black Fibula" Meredeth

Sentence: 15 Centuries

Crime: smuggling skunks in his pants

These stone castle passageways are uncomfortably drafty, and apparently you aren't the only one who thinks so, as this skeleton has crafted a warm fur coat to keep the chill out of its bones. However, by "warm fur coat" I mean "a collection of dead rats clumsily sewn together", so the overall picture is less of a cosmopolitan man-about-town than a skeleton inside a pile of rotting rat carcasses.

Hit Message(s):

The skeleton runs up next to you. You start retching so hard, you pull a muscle. Ooh! Oof! (stench damage)

The skeleton doesn't actually hit you, but it gets close enough that the smell knocks you off your feet. Ugh! Ouch! (stench damage)

The skeleton's stink hits you with the power of a physical blow. In fact you can almost see a shimmering nigh-invisible fist. Ooh! Argh! (stench damage)

The skeleton claws you, and your entire everything gets infected and falls off. ...Okay, not really. But it feels terrible. Ooh! Ouch! (stench damage)

The skeleton scratches at you with its bony claws. Its bony, and not in the least bit clean, claws. Argh! Ouch! (stench damage)

Critical Hit Message:

The skeleton punches you in the kidney with its fist, and in the nose with its stench. Ooh! Ow! Ooh! Ow! Argh! (stench damage)

Miss Message(s):

The skeleton tries to attack you, but you refuse to let it get anywhere near you.

The skeleton tries to claw you, but you know better than to let any of that filth get anywhere near your bloodstream.

The skeleton runs up next to you, but doesn't attack. I guess it was expecting the smell to do its work for it? Lazy skeleton.

The skeleton claws at you, but you quickly cover yourself with hand sanitizer.

The skeleton focuses its stink at you, but nothing much happens.

Fumble Message:

The skeleton gets a whiff of itself, and reels for a moment. Note that, as a skeleton, it has no actual nose, lungs, or sensory apparatus. That's how bad it smells. (FUMBLE!)

Notes

  • The Freddy Kruegerand and Dreadsylvanian Almanac page drops are not affected by item drop modifiers. They are similar to the beer lens drop and drops from crates. In particular, they can still drop after being stomped.
  • If any elements are banished, each round of combat with a stench Dreadsylvanian take damage with a message:
    • You inhale deeply to acclimate yourself to the stink, but end up gagging and retching.
    • Uggh, it smells like Death farted in here.
    • You know how if you smell something bad for long enough, your brain adjusts and you kind of stop smelling it? That's not happening here.
    • Boy does it stink in here.
    • Remember how good a freshly-baked loaf of bread smells? No, you don't, because you've been marinating in this stink too long.
    • Something smells terrible. You sniff your armpits, wondering if it's you.
    • What is that smell? Did something die in here? Like, recently?
    • You glance around, trying to identify the source of that awful stink.
    • You breathe through your mouth, trying to avoid smelling whatever you're smelling.
HPYou lose Y hit points. (stench damage)
  • If any elements are banished, getting hit by a stench Dreadsylvanian adds turns of Nauseated:
Nauseated.gifYou acquire an effect: Nauseated
(duration: N+1 Adventures)
  • This monster has elemental resistant which increases with the difficulty of the zone.
  • The name, image, and introduction text of this monster are all randomly selected:

You ready your weapon as a zombie silently shambles toward you... Wait a minute...

As several bits fall off of the humanoid figure, it becomes apparent that this isn't a zombie, but a skeleton attempting to fashion new flesh out of garbage: crumpled newspapers and tissues stuffed into the ribcage, rotting lunchmeat skin, moldy grapes in the eye-sockets, a wilted lettuce toupee... It's a strange combination of gross and sad.

A nicotine-yellow skeleton clatters toward you. It's smoking two cigars at the same time, and smells like it's been doing so for hundreds of years. Which may be perfectly accurate. Fortunately, it doesn't have to worry about lung cancer -- in fact, the skeleton probably came to that same conclusion and decided, well, what the heck? You don't have the same immunity, though, so probably you'd better do something about this guy before you inhale too much second-hand smoke.
As you wander the darkened castle corridor, you start to smell something rather unpleasant, like you're getting near the castle's bathroom, or cess-pit, or whatever a castle has. Suddenly, out of the shadows, a skeleton covered in brown, oozing muck shambles toward you, wielding a toilet plunger. Fortunately, it drops the plunger when it moves to attack, because eeew! Toilet plunger!
A skeleton clatters up to you, gnashing its teeth angrily. Just as it gets in range, though, it suddenly stops and stands motionless for a moment. You hear a quiet *thppppt* noise.

What in the... did that skeleton just fart?
