Arena Messages

  • When entered in a game of Hide and Seek:
    <name> buzzes too loudly to stay hidden very well.

Notes

  • The damage done in an attack, Z, ranges from 1 to weight/2.
  • In the Muscle gain formula, Y is the number of Muscle substats you would normally have gained, while the bonus value X is between 1 and ceiling(weight/4).
  • The bonus stat gain does not appear as a separate line, but is rolled into your normal stat gain information at the bottom of the combat.
  • The bee does not feed you jelly every battle; this ability triggers only some of the time, and only at the end of combat. Activation seems to occur about 1/3 of the time.
  • The bee also attacks in combat approximately 1/3 of the time, regardless of its weight.
  • The damage from the jelly ability occurs after the end of a combat but effects are decremented and before equipment or effect HP regeneration. So if the player has 1 HP s/he will get three turns of Beaten Up even if the HP is restored immediately.

  • "ASCII and ye shall receive" refers to John 16:24 (KJV): "ask, and ye shall receive".
  • This familiar, its art (a lowercase a), and the royal jelly are references to the game NetHack, in which the monster class "insects" are represented by lowercase as.
