The Big Book of Pirate Insults
The Big Book of Pirate Insults

This book claims to contain 1,001 insults, taunts, and put-downs for any occasion... well, any occasion involving pirates, anyway. It's got everything from the old classics ("You fight like a dairy farmer!") to the newest snaps ("Yo captain's so fat, when they load his booty on the ship, there's no room left for any treasure!"). Guaranteed to put the saltiest bilge-rats and scallywags in their place!

Type: combat item (reusable)

(In-game plural: Big Books of Pirate Insults)

Obtained From

(duration: 1 Adventure)
  • When attempting a second use of the book in the same combat adventure:
Book4.gif
You've already used one of those insults this fight. A second one just wouldn't be as... insulting.
  • Against enemies outside the Pirate's Cove:

You flip open the Big Book of Pirate Insults and pick one at random.

"<random insult>"

Your opponent blinks at you, and then makes an extra-spirited attempt to smash your face in.

Notes

  • Each time the Big Book of Pirate Insults is used in combat:
    • 75% of the time, the attack fails (and you're embarrassed), and the pirate's comeback will be available for use in the Arrr You Man Enough? adventure.
    • 25% of the time, the attack succeeds against a pirate, deleveling the pirate.
    • If the attack is against a non-pirate, it will not affect monster level, but your opponent will automatically hit on the next turn.
  • If the pirate would reply with an insult you've already heard, there's a 50% chance that the selected insult will instead be replaced by a new selection. The newly-selected insult is also subject to the 50% rejection rate if you've already heard it, and may be the same as the original insult.
  • The Ambidextrous Funkslinging skill does not give you a second chance at insulting your opponent.
  • This item has no pirate effect against the Scary pirate or the Talk Like a Pirate Day pirates and results in the extra-spirited attempt to smash your face in.

References

  • The idea of pirate insults (and the "old classic" explicitly mentioned) stems from the "insult swordfighting" sequence from the adventure game The Secret of Monkey Island.
  • The example of a modern insult is a reference to "Yo Mama" lines
