|Quest||bugbear autopsy tweezers|
When a bugbear buggers off this mortal coil, his remains are tended to by a bugbear mortician. They embalm the body, repair any pre-mortem damage, and stuff the whole thing with corn meal and sawdust, as is bugbear tradition.
He strangles you with his tastefully somber necktie. Oof! Ooh! Oof!
He measures you for a coffin. It freaks you out a little. Oof! Ugh! Eek! (spooky damage)
He sews your mouth shut and puts two 5-meat coins on your eyes. The latter doesn't hurt much. Argh! Ouch! Ooh!
He fills your lungs with embalming fluid. It's considerably harder to breathe than air is. Ouch! Eek! Ouch!
He starts trying to stuff you with sawdust and corn meal. He doesn't make much headway, but what progress he makes is exceedingly unpleasant. Ooh! Argh! Argh!
He tries to strangle you with his necktie, but it's a clip-on.
He tries to measure you for a coffin, but you're coughin' too hard to stand still.
He puts two 5-meat coins on your eyes, but you blink them away.
He tries to fill you with embalming fluid, but you've drunk enough booze to be thoroughly embalmed already.
He loses interest in you because you're still alive (I'm making a note here: huge success). Some people learn the funerary arts; some are naturals. (FUMBLE!)
