Lumpy, the Sinister Sauceblob You're fighting Lumpy, the Sinister Sauceblob

As you step into the Inner Sanctum, you hear a low burbling noise. Something drips from the ceiling and splats by your feet, and the stink of rotten bolognese assaults your finely-tuned sense of smell. You take a step backwards, but the stone vault door slides shut behind you.

The smell intensifies, with tones of rancid cream and ancient gravy added to the mix. Rivulets of ooze drip from the ceiling and pour from cracks in the walls, forming a giant puddle which congeals and then shudders as huge beige, brown, and red pseudopods rise from the muck, and two glowing yellow eyes shine in the dim light.

Now you recognize your foe -- the terrible Sauceblob, the amalgam of leftover mystical gravies and dressings that, rejected from the Source, have joined this terrible collective. Few know its true name, and none that do dare to speak it aloud... it is known only as "Lumpy".

Hit Message(s):

It drowns you in thick alfredo sauce. Eek! Eek!

It lunges at you and gets acidic red sauce all over your <ankle>. Ooh! Ooh!

It coats you with hollandaise sauce. Is there any one out there? I ask because it's getting harder and harder for you to breathe. Argh! Ugh!

It spits hot salsa at you. You feel both picante and caliente. And also en dolor. Oof! Ugh! (hot damage)

Critical Hit Message:

It rises up in saucy splendor and drowns you in a soy sauce tsunami. The salt, syrup, and sibilance combine for substantial damage. Argh! Eek!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to drown you in alfredo sauce, but you eat your way out.

It splashes acidic red sauce at you, but you jump to the left and step to the right.

It tries to coat you with hollandaise sauce, but you catch it on a shiny hubcap. There's got to be a joke in there somewhere...

It spits hot salsa at you, but you counter with some hot salsa dance moves.

Fumble Message:

It creates a soy sauce tsunami, but a giant lizard appears out of nowhere and drinks it all before it can get to you. (FUMBLE!)


After Combat

  • Upon defeat:

Lumps of clotted gravy splatter on the cavern walls (and also you) as you deliver a final blow to the sinister sauceblob. It burbles at you angrily, pseudopods thrashing wildly, and begins to slither away.

You attempt to block its escape, but it slips into a crack in the cavern wall, leaving behind a puddle of rapidly congealing alfredo and a strong premonition that you haven't seen the last of that disgusting... thing.

Oh well. Anyway, here's some loot:

Meat.gifYou gain 28-42 Meat (average: 35, stdev: 3.24)*
Saucehat.gifYou acquire an item: Ancient Saucehelm
You gain 3 <substat>.

Occurs at The Dark and Dank and Sinister Cave as the Sauceror nemesis.

Notes

  • Once you have defeated Lumpy, this adventure will no longer reoccur (becomes a one time adventure).
  • Before the Nemesis quest revamp, the monster description read as follows:
    • This is a blob of malevolent sauce. Lumpy, too. Too much cornstarch.
  • This monster cannot be copied.

References

  • The "jump to the left and step to the right" are the instructions for the dance The Time Warp from the The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
  • "Is there any one out there? I ask because it's getting harder and harder for you to breathe." is a reference to the song Harder to Breathe by Maroon 5.
  • The "joke" referred to about hollandaise sauce on a shiny hubcap involves a man serving hollandaise sauce on a hubcap, who, when questioned, quips, "Oh, there's no plate like chrome for the hollandaise."
  • The hot salsa hit message references both Spanish words for hot, "picante", meaning hot as in spicy, and "caliente", meaning hot as in temperature. And "en dolor" means "in pain".
  • The giant lizard in the fumble message may be a reference to Godzilla.
