      <name> drifts over your head and pours a refreshing Spring rain on you.
      HPYou gain X hit points.
    • After combat:
      <name> rises above you, and a gentle rain begins to fall. A gentle purple rain. And purple is the color of muscles!
      You gain 2-3 Strengthliness.
      <name> rises above you, and a gentle rain begins to fall. The rain refreshes your mind and your spirit. Hippy.
      You gain 2-3 Magicalness.
      <name> rises above you, and a gentle rain begins to fall. You sing in the rain for a while, then dance in the rain. Moxious!
      You gain 2-3 Roguishness.

      HPYou gain X hit points.
      <name> rises above you, and a gentle rain begins to fall. You notice that the cloud has a golden lining, and it inspires you.
      MPYou gain X Mana Points.
  • Enthroned in the Crown of Thrones
    <Name> rains on you. It's probably because you lied when you were seventeen, but it's refreshing nonetheless, and the tiny lightning bolts are as invigorating as they are adorable.
    HPYou gain 5-6 hit points.
    MPYou gain 3-4 Mana Points.
  • Bjornified in the Buddy Bjorn:
    Noticing that <name> has filled the Buddy Bjorn with rainwater, you stop to take a refreshing drink free of commie subterfuge.

    MPYou gain 3-4 Mana Points.
  • With lucky Tam O'Shanter equipped:
    <name>'s Tam O'Shanter whips around in the wind, snagging some extra Meat out of midair.
  • With miniature gravy-covered maypole equipped:
    <name> does a rain dance around the maypole. Bit of a self-fulfilling dance, that.
  • With wax lips equipped:
    <name> smiles quickly with the wax lips, before you can wonder how you can stick wax lips on a cloud.

Arena Messages

  • None - familiar has no weaknesses.

Notes

  • The value of X is between 1 and Y+3, where Y is the familiar's weight.
  • When it delevels (the disappointed message), it delevels 1 to floor(weight/4) levels (similar to a Spooky Pirate Skeleton).
  • The familiar acts 20+(weight*2.5)% of the time. All combat actions are equally likely.

References

  • "May flowers" refers to the saying "April showers bring May flowers".
  • One of the victory messages mentions Purple Rain, which is the name of a song/album/film by Prince. The "purple is the color of muscles!" may also be a reference to the purple zits some people get when they take steroids.
  • The second line of the Haiku refers to the Burt Bacharach and Hal David song "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head", performed by B.J. Thomas on the soundtrack of the 1969 movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
  • The concept of a "personal raincloud" that follows someone around probably dates from the "world's worst jinx" character Joe Btfsplk in the Al Capp comic strip Li'l Abner. Personal dust clouds or rainclouds have appeared with numerous other characters since then, including Pig-Pen in the Peanuts comic strip and the animated Schleprock in The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show (also a terrible jinx). Rain and rainclouds follow the character Rob McKenna in So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish by Douglas Adams wherever he goes. A localized rain-and-thundercloud also floats above the rolling home of The Addams Family in their original Hanna-Barbera animated series.
  • The name may be a reference to the Metal Slug series of games, in which the player could obtain a personal thundercloud that attacked enemies with lightning bolts.
