Occurs when fighting enemies while Temporarily Blinded.


  • The amount of experience gained, meat dropped, and items acquired, are comparable to the type of monster you are actually facing, depending on the location being adventured in.
  • Casting CLEESH will result in this message:
    You cast CLEESH at your opponent. It turns into ... some kind of amphibian, you imagine..
  • The initiative message is always gender-neutral: "You get the jump on it" or "It gets the jump on you."
  • Casting Magic Missile will result in this message:
    You attack the darkness. An elf with blue... no, gray eyes falls out of the darkness, clutching a can of Mountain Stream. You wish briefly for some cheesy puffed corn snacks.
    Soda.gifYou acquire an item: Mountain Stream soda
  • When fighting Ed the Undying, the fight continues as normal.
  • When a Black Cat playfully bats away an item, the item name is not replaced with "...something."
  • Clan dungeon chat messages will show the boss enemy name as "darkness" but drops are identified.


  • "Attacking the Darkness" is a reference to the Dead Alewives' Dungeons and Dragons sketch. This is further cemented by the combat text when casting Magic Missile, as the sketch involves a wizard casting Magic Missile at the darkness, a character whose eye-color is in dispute, and someone demanding to know where the Mountain Dew and Cheetos (a cheesy puffed corn snack) are.
