hangman's tree You're fighting a hangman's tree

This is a tree that a hangman used to e_e_u_e criminals. It's covered with nooses, and it's coming right at you, and you've already guessed most of the vowels.

Hit Message(s):

You shout, "A!" but it still grabs you with one of its nooses and chokes a little life out of you. That Fonz impression never helps, does it? Ooh! Ouch! Ooh!

You shout, "B!" but it still grabs you with a noose and chokes the life out of you. Guess it's not scared of bees. Ow! Argh! Ooh!

You shout, "I!" It can't figure out if you meant the 9th or 12th letter of the alphabet, so it throttles you. Damn font! Oof! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

You shout, "P!" but it still strangles you with a noose. I guess it doesn't care about your bathroom needs. Ow! Eek! Argh! Ooh!

Critical Hit Message:

It grabs you with a noose, pulls you off the ground, and makes you do a hempen fandango. And hippies want to legalize that stuff? Man. Ooh! Ooh! Ugh! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to strangle you, but misses. No noose is good noose.

It swings a noose at you, but you vamoose from the noose.

It gets its nooses crossed and ends up trying to throttle itself.

It swings a noose towards you, but you correctly guess a letter.

Fumble Message:

It tries to throttle you, but you're already at full throttle. (FUMBLE!)

References

  • This encounter is based on the hangman word game. (Though the player has apparently failed to guess "XTC" -- the word in the description is "execute".)
  • The "I" attack message refers to the lack of difference between an upper-case "I" and a lower-case "l" in some sans-serif fonts (Arial being the prime example).
