Mer-kin miner You're fighting a Mer-kin miner

This Mer-kin has been tasked with removing useful ores from the rocky sea-bed, to be crafted into tools and weapons. This is an important task -- you certainly wouldn't refer to it as 'lesser', or 'trivial', or 'negligible', or 'inconsequential', or...

Hit Message(s):

He quickly mines some ore, smelts it, forges it into a sharp hooked spear, and stabs you in the <neck> with it. Eek! Ouch! Argh! Ouch! Ugh!

You get bashed in the head with a metal ingot. The Mer-kin dealt the blow, so I guess he smelted the ore too. Argh! Eek! Ow! Oof! Ooh!

He discovers a rich mineral vein to extract from your <ankle>. Eek! Ugh! Ugh! Ow! Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

The miner takes a moment to pick your brains. Literally. Ouch! Oof! Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!

Miss Message(s):

He starts to bash you with a metal ingot, but you say "What am I, an anvil? Ha ha ha, get it? Anvil?" Your opponent looks perplexed.

He starts to mine your <shins> for ore, but you inform him that he doesn't really want what he'll find in there.

He quickly mines some ore, smelts it, and tries to forge it into a spear to stab you with, but he can't get a proper edge on the blade and gives up in a huff. Temper, temper.

Fumble Message:

The miner gets distracted and starts to pick his nose, but catches himself and stops before he does any damage. (FUMBLE!)

  • ...or "minor," ha ha.
  • The hit message about smelting ore is a reference to the flatulence-related epigram, "Whoever smelt it, dealt it."
  • Tempering is a way of processing metal to make it stronger or more ductile.
