spooky ghost You're fighting Micajah Lynch, who fell asleep in the cemetery and woke up dead

You walk through a spot on the sidewalk that seems somehow spookier than everywhere else. Like, as soon as you step into it, the hairs on your neck stand up, your pulse quickens, you feel existential dread, and you'd swear there's someone noodling on a theremin nearby. This must be one of those fabled "spooky spots" caused by a spooky ghost.

Yup, there's the spooky ghost now.

Hit Message(s):

A crash behind you makes you jump. You whirl around and see it was just a cat. Whew. Then the spooky ghost WHOOSHES at you, wailing. Ouch! Ugh! Ooh! Ugh! (spooky damage)

He whooshes around the street, putting all of the torches out and plunging you into darkness. Eek! Ooh! Ow! Oof! (spooky damage)

He pops into a shop window, makes the mannequins come to life, and scares the crap out of you. Ow! Oof! Oof! Ugh! (spooky damage)

He floats behind you and shouts, "BOO!" A cheap scare, but effective. Ooh! Ooh! Ouch! Ooh! (spooky damage)

He swoops around you, making "wooooooo" noises. Not "WOO!" like a drunk girl at a bar. This is a decidedly spooky "woooooo." Ooh! Ugh! Ooh! Eek! (spooky damage)

He whispers like the wind blowing through the limbs of a skeletal tree in an abandoned graveyard. Eek! Ow! Ouch! Eek! (spooky damage)

Critical Hit Message:

He swoops through you, his dreadful darkness suffusing and suffocating your entire insides. Your intestines get a little scared, and your kidneys mostly handle it, but your heart is pretty freaked out. Argh! Ugh! Oof! Ouch! (spooky damage)

Miss Message(s):

A crash behind you makes you jump, but it turns out it was just a cat.

He blows out some of the torches, then gets peeved that he forgot to make a wish first.

He tries to bring the mannequins in a nearby shop window to life, but can't convincingly animate them.

He tries to scare you by shouting "Boo! Boo!" but all he does is make you think about pic-a-nic baskets.

He swoops around you going, "wooooo." You choose to believe he's cheering you on.

He whispers like the wind blowing through a skeletal tree, but you don't listen.

Fumble Message:

He discovers that today's jaded adventurers are harder to scare than their more naive forebears, and stops to read up on some more modern scare tactics. You know, like long black hair and elaborate torture machines. (FUMBLE!)

    • A black crow flutters down to a tree branch near you and meows loudly.
    • You feel the hair on the back of your neck stand on end.
    • A ghost shrieks in the distance, breaking your concentration without even apologizing. You shiver.
    • The wind whistles through the trees nearby, startling you and making you lose track of what you were doing. A chill runs down your spine.
    • The creepy vibes in this place really mess with your head. You shudder.
    • A black cat looks up at you and says, "what are you staring at, jagoff?" It hisses and crosses your path as it leaves.
    • You shudder. Something isn't right, here.

Dv spirit.gifYou acquire an effect: Touched by a Ghost
(duration: N+1 Adventures)
  • Effect duration, N+1 is the number of times the monsters in the village have been modified by a noncombat in the current run plus one.
  • The name, image, and introduction text of this monster are all randomly selected:

The wind moans around you, seeming to say your name (even if your name isn't "Ooooooo"). You spin around, positive you're being watched, but no one's there. The feeling doesn't go away, and you turn slow circles, looking for the threat that's got your nerves on edge.

It's a shame you didn't look up, because you didn't see the wailing ghost descending at you until it was almost nose-to-ectoplasm with you.

This part of the village is decidedly unsettling. Spectral trees rake the sky, diseased crows caw phlegmily, and it seems like every boarded-up storefront is watching you with malicious intent. So when the button-eyed, wailing ghost rises up from the ground in front of you, you're hardly surprised. Scared out of your mind, but not surprised.
The hairs prick up on the back of your neck (which is less painful than the hairs backing up on the neck of your--you know what, never mind). Someone's out here; you can feel it. "S-s-stay away from me!" you shout, trying and failing to sound brave.

Someone else's voice comes out of your mouth; a deep, guttural voice full of malicious glee. "I'm already here," it says, and a dark shape separates from your body and floats toward you.
