These snakes are named after their curious method of locomotion, wherein they just leap straight for your face.
RE: Big Gambling Tournament Announced
Having to fight off a bunch of snakes in a darkened cavern pit is a harrowing experience, but at least that jerk's nickname isn't "Wild Tiger" or "Molten Lava".
RE: Sheriff Wanted
As you're heading up the river toward the Placid Lake Gang's hideout, you hear a hissing from some rocks on the riverbank. You were always interested in hissing so you get closer to investigate. Maybe it's a rare Guatemalan Hissing Beetle!
No, it's not. It's a frontwinder, and it springs at your throat, fangs bared, the instant it sees you.
When will you learn?
The frontwinder shoots directly up your nose and bites you on the brain. Oof! Ooh! Ow! Eek!
The snake bites you, and its reaction to how you taste is honestly kind of insulting. Ugh! Argh! Eek! Ugh!
The snake bites you, which is what snakes do. It really is basically the only thing snakes do. Eek! Ouch! Ow! Ow!
The frontwinder leaps straight at your face, as per usual for this type of snake. (CRITICAL HIT!) Argh! Ugh! Ouch! Eek!
The frontwinder tries to get at your brain through your nose, but fortunately you've got a bit of a cold.
The snake does not bite you. It's rebelling against the dominant paradigm.
The snake tries to bite you, and misses. It must feel like a real failure as a snake.
The frontwinder jumps for your face, but misses. Now it has to figure out how to turn around. (FUMBLE!)
