|Locations||The Unquiet Garves, The VERY Unquiet Garves|
|Monster Parts||head, rib, spine|
|Quest||The Shield of Brook|
You see a mauseleum in the cemetery with BOROK engraved on it. Ah, this must be where Brook's Shield is! You walk in and notice that the walls have the word "skeleton" etched into them dozens of times, in dozens of different misspellings. Perhaps a wizard was trying to counteract the dreadful orthographic curse that haunts these hollowed grounds.
You read a few aloud: "sklelton. Skeelton. Skilitan. S...snakeleton? That's not even close!"
Then you hear the dry scraping of a hundred hundred ribs across the mousleum floor, and turn to see a huge snake skeleton, all ribs and skull and spine and spine and spine. Eerie blue light flashes in its empty eye sockets as it hisses at you.
It gazes deep into your soul, replacing all your happy memories with darkness. Ooh! Oof! (spooky damage)
It hisses at you with the wailing of wind through a graveyard. Ow! Ugh! (spooky damage)
It plunges a bony fang (okay, just a fang) into your face, filling it with the chill of the grave. Ouch! Ouch! (spooky damage)
It rattles its tailbones at you, making a chill race up and down your spine. Oof! Ow! (spooky damage)
It wraps you in a coil and hisses at you, terrifying you to your core. Argh! Ow! (spooky damage)
It wraps you in a coil and whispers horrible secrets in your ear. Ouch! Eek! (spooky damage)
Its ribs expand outward, creaking and snapping as they open to engulf you. Then they snap shut around you, trapping you in a cage of bone. You suddenly remember that you're both afraid of snakes and claustrophobic. Argh! Ugh! (spooky damage)
It gazes deep into your soul, but you gaze back at it until the lights in its eyes blink.
It hisses at you, but it has a bit of a lisp, so it's less creepy than it could have been.
It tries to bite you, but its fangs aren't firmly rooted in gum, so they just fall out.
It rattles its bones at you, but you sing "Dem Bones" to yourself to keep your spirits up.
It tries to wrap you in a bony coil, but you avoid it.
It tries to wrap you in a coil, but you beat the wrap.
It stops to plunder the other skeletons in the crypt to get more vertebrae and ribs to add onto itself. (FUMBLE!)
