clod hopper You're fighting a clod hopper

The ground beneath you begins to rumble as a massive, boulder-like creature emerges from the ground in front of you.

Looks like you're going to have to be a little bolder than usual if you're going to deal with this threat.

Hit Message(s):

A rock feels no pain, but you certainly do when a rock stomps on your <face>. Ooh! Eek! Ooh!

It winds a piece of string around its rock fist, then punches you with it. Ouch! Argh! Oof!

It rocks the Casbah, and by Casbah, I mean your <forehead>. Argh! Ugh! Eek!

It throws a clod of dirt at you, Claude. By the way, happy birthday! Oof! Ow! Ugh!

Critical Hit Message:

It masticates you in its rocky teeth. If only you had the mystical Tiger's Eye Amulet, to ward off rocky attacks like this one. Ooh! Ooh! Ouch! Oof!

Miss Message(s):

It tells you that a rock feels no pain, but you counter that an island never cries, and no man is an island.

It stops attacking to wind a piece of string around one of its loose rocks.

It tries to rock you like a Casbah, but the sheriff doesn't like that.

It throws a clod of dirt at you, but misses, Claude.

Fumble Message:

It stops trying to bite you with its rocky teeth, and howls, "Adrienne!" (FUMBLE!)
