big creepy spider You're fighting a big creepy spider

In the Sleazy Back Alley, you are attacked by a big creepy spider. He promises not to kill you, but you're not sure you believe him.

Hit Message(s):

It spiderbites you in the <ankle>. Man, get rid of spider. Eek!

It does whatever a spider can, which in this case includes sinking its fangs into your <ear>. Argh!

It encloses you in a web coccoon. You suffocate and come out feeling like an eighty-year-old who hangs out with Steve Guttenberg. Argh!

It spears you with a venemous fang. Fangs a lot. Ugh!

Critical Hit Message:

It spins a web (any size) and catches you just like a fly. Look out, here comes that spider, man. You writhe around trying to free yourself, and eventually fall to the ground. Twenty feet to the ground. Eek!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to spiderbite you, but you tell it that it's your hero, and it's flattered.

It does whatever a spider can, which includes tripping over six of its legs and falling down.

It encloses you in a coccoon, but Steve Guttenberg saves you.

It tries to spear you with a venemous mandible, but you're immune to dactyl-based damage (look it up, I'm not your search engine).

Fumble Message:

It spins a web to ensnare you, but gets scared midway through and ends up spooling all of its web fiber onto the ground. Someone should make a hilarious cartoon along those lines. (FUMBLE!)
