Stella, the Turtle Poacher You're fighting Stella, the Turtle Poacher

You jump from the final stepping-stone onto the rocky island in the middle of this hellish furnace of lava, and are surprised to discover an ancient stone altar covered with weakly-glowing runes that awaken strange feelings within you -- feelings of recognition. Stella stands over the altar, fumbling hastily with a book of matches. Her obvious intent is to light a large sinister-looking black candle placed atop the stone; it is equally obvious that this candle is not part of the altar's usual furnishings.

"That... that's an ancient Turtle Tamer shrine!" you shout. "What in A'Tuin's name do you think you're doing?"

Stella spins around with an angry and exasperated glare. "Goddamnit, you have got the worst timing! All right, <gender> Scout, I'll tell you what I'm doing -- I'm desecrating this stupid altar of yours! And once I've stolen its power, I'm going to use it to wipe all of you freakin' goody-two-shoes Turtle Tamers out of existence!"

"Over my dead body you will!"

"Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking too!" Enraged, she swings her sickle at you, and sparks fly as you hastily raise the Chelonian Morningstar to defend yourself.

Hit Message(s):

Stella kicks you in the stomach, then does a back-handspring, catching you under the jaw with her heel as she goes. Your teeth slam shut on your tongue. Argh! Ugh! Eek! Oof!

Stella backflips over you. Before you can duck, she catches your ear with her sickle, nearly slicing it off entirely. She lands and whistles a few bars of "Stuck In The Middle With You", mockingly. Eek! Ugh! Oof! Ouch!

Stella cartwheels toward you, her weapons glimmering in the red light. You just manage to parry her fork, but the sickle catches you in the side as she spins away. Argh! Oof! Oof! Argh!

Stella catches the chain of your morningstar and yanks, throwing you off-balance. She kicks you in the face and follows through, spinning and kicking you again with her other foot and sending you crashing to the ground. Oof! Ow! Ooh! Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

Stella leaps into the air, flips, and stomps your head with both heels. Landing in a crouch, she chuckles as you pick yourself up off the ground. Argh! Ow! Ouch! Eek!

Miss Message(s):

The two of you circle each other for a long moment, each searching for an opening in the other's defenses.

Stella leaps into the air, but you dive underneath her, dodging her aerial assault. She lands in a crouch and narrows her eyes, plainly annoyed.

Stella drops to the ground and spins, but you manage to get your ankles out of the way just in time.

Stella kicks at your stomach, then flips backward into a back-handspring. You duck and weave, just barely managing to dodger[sic] her blows.

Fumble Message:

Stella does a series of handsprings toward you, and then past you, and then into a wall. (FUMBLE!)

Occurs at The Nemesis' Lair.

Notes

  • Occurs after solving the lava puzzle, or choosing to skip it.
  • If you lose the battle, you can try again without having to repeat the lava puzzle.
  • Leads to Flying In Circles, and, subsequently, Stella, the Demonic Turtle Poacher.
  • Damage Reduction acts like so:
    • First, all attacks do 75% of their normal damage, rounded up.
    • Afterwards, if the damage dealt from a single source would otherwise be over 100, then a soft damage cap kicks in. The resultant damage is 100 + (X-100)0.85, rounded down, where X > 100 is the damage before the soft cap.
  • This monster cannot be copied.
