You stop to admire the current arcing between the poles of a Jacob's Ladder. It's mesmerizing, the way the arc seems to rise, almost like it's alive, the sizzling of the air around it sounding a bit like hissing...
But wait! This is no mere arc of electricity! This is the mythical creature summoned when electricity and eldritch magic meet: the Jacob's Adder, a writhing electrical snake of dangerously high voltage.
It arcs between your fingertips, blowing two of your fingernails clean off. Man, I winced just describing that. Ow! Ow! Ooh! Argh!
It leaps into your chest and stops your heart for a second. It's not a total eclipse, but it's enough. Argh! Ugh! Ugh! Argh!
It shocks you in the thigh. It's way more shocking than a glimpse of stocking. Eek! Ouch! Argh! Ow!
It whips you with a high-voltage tail. Right in your low-voltage tail. Ow! Oof! Oof! Ow!
It wraps around your foot and squeezes, burning and bruising at the same time. Argh! Eek! Ow! Ugh! (hot damage)
It wraps around you and pumps current through you until all of your muscles seize up. You fall to the ground twitching and thrashing. It really sucks. Ouch! Ow! Ouch! Ugh!
It arcs between your fingers, which looks pretty wicked cool.
It leaps into your chest and stops your heart, inadvertently fixing your arrhythmia.
It tries to burn you with an electric fang, but you point out Electric Fang is your Wolfmother cover band.
It tries to shock you, but it's even less shocking than a glimpse of stocking.
It tries to whip you with its high-voltage tail, but you dodge.
It tries to wrap around your <ear> and squeeze, but electricity isn't tangible enough to squeeze like that.
It gets trapped between the wires of the Jacob's Ladder and can't muster up the energy to arc away from it towards you. Or maybe you're just a really grounded guy. (FUMBLE!)
