floating platter of hors d'oeuvres You're fighting a floating platter of hors d'oeuvres

As you're crossing the floor of the Haunted Ballroom, an elaborately carved art déco tray covered with hors d'oeuvres, animated by some malicious spirit, rises from a nearby table and darts toward your head. Sacré bleu! You duck, and it barely misses your head.

Somehow sensing its mistake, it darts at your head again, giving you a strange feeling of déjà vu. You shout "en garde!" as you ready your weapon, giving yourself carte blanche to wish this enfant terrible a heartfelt bon voyage.

Hit Message(s):

It pelts your <bung> with a machine-gun burst of petit-fours. Sweet, sweet pain. Eek! Ooh! Ugh! Ooh!

The edge of the tray hits you in the <knee>. Ah, well, c'est la vie. Eek! Argh! Argh! Ow! Ugh! Ouch!

The tray hits you in the face, leaving an impression of a fleur-de-lis on your <giblets>. Argh! Ow! Ouch! Ugh! Oof! Eek!

Critical Hit Message:

You briefly bid adieu to your consciousness as the tray repeatedly beats you on the head. Argh! Eek! Ugh!

Miss Message(s):

It darts toward your head, but its behavior is a bit gauche, and it veers off to the left at the last minute.

It starts toward you, but then adopts a laissez-faire attitude about the whole thing, and lights gently back on the table.

It tries to hit you in the ankle, but misses and clatters noisily across the dance floor. Quite a faux pas.

Fumble Message:

The tray whirls through the air toward you, but becomes a victim of force majeure as a fraying tapestry falls from the ballroom ceiling and knocks it to the floor. (FUMBLE!)
