The Sierpinski brothers You're fighting The Sierpinski brothers

The Triads were called that as a reference to their organizational structure: three-man cells, usually a boss and two lieutenants, with the lieutenants taking reports from lower-ranking bosses and the boss reporting to a higher-ranking lieutenant. This gave them very strict organizational control and chain-of-command, while keeping things decentralized so that, should any individual cell be compromised, they couldn't rat out anyone but their immediate superiors and inferiors, and the network could route around the hole until it was repaired.

I'd heard of the Sierpinski brothers -- Chang, Eng, and Tony -- before, of course. They were major players in the local crime scene. It was rumored that they were even at the top of the Triad pyramid scheme, though I always figured they'd started that rumor themselves. Regardless, they were high up the ladder.

I didn't expect to get any information out of them with sweet-talk, so instead I decided to try force. I was no noob, after all.

Hit Message(s):

Chang and Eng grabbed my arms and held me while Tony belted me one in the eye. Argh! Oof! Argh!

The brothers chanted a stream of mumbo-jumbo in three part harmony, and suddenly every part of me was on fire. Oof! Eek! Ouch! (hot damage)

Tony pushed me suddenly, and I fell backward over Eng, who was kneeling on the floor behind me. I landed in just the right place for Chang to kick me in the side of the head. Gotta admire the teamwork. Ouch! Oof! Eek!

Critical Hit Message:

Tony grabbed a large and elaborate action-figure off of Chang's desk and threw it at me. Chang seemed pretty upset by this, and I didn't exactly relish having a plastic sword in my eye myself. Ow! Argh! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

Chang and Eng grabbed my arms and held me while Tony belted me one. Fortunately, triads don't get much use out of their fists, and it was like being headbutted by a bluebottle.

The brothers started chanting a magical incantation, but Eng was a half-beat off and nothing happened. The other two glared at him, and he shrugged, embarrassed.

Tony shouted at Chang and Eng to use "combat maneuver 3-b". I had no idea what that meant, and apparently, neither did they.

Fumble Message:

"Attack him!" Tony shouted. "No, you do it!" Eng shouted back. "Well, somebody has to do it," Chang said, throwing up his hands. "One-two-three-NOT IT!" (FUMBLE!)
