Sub-Assistant Knob Mad Scientist You're fighting a Sub-Assistant Knob Mad Scientist

You know how sometimes a Mad Scientist will have an assistant? Well, sometimes those assistants have assistants, and that's what this Knob Goblin is. He's got a few tricks up his sleeve, though, so watch out.

Hit Message(s):

He forks you in the eye. He blinded you with SCIENCE! Eek!

He hits you in the throat with a fork. It's not even a scientific fork. Ow!

He shows you one of the tricks he has up his sleeve -- turns out, it's a fist. Which smashes into your <knee>. Ooh!

He postulates that if he kicks you in the <solar plexus>, you'll scream in pain, then tests his hypothesis. Turns out, he was right. Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

He pulls out a chemistry set and mixes up a strange, bubbling potion. He drinks it, turns into a lurching monster, and pounds you into a fine paste. Eek!

Miss Message(s):

He tries to blind you with science, but you dodge like poetry in motion.

He tries to hit you with his fork, but gets distracted by how educated stupid you are.

He postulates that flailing wildly at you will be an effective attack, but it turns out he's wrong.

He pulls out a chemistry set and mixes up a strange, bubbling potion. He drinks it, shivers, and belches loudly, then looks embarrassed.

Fumble Message:

He shows you one of the tricks he has up his sleeve. The bunch of flowers he pulls out isn't particularly threatening. (FUMBLE!)

  • The "blinded you with science" lines are references to Thomas Dolby's 1982 song "She Blinded Me with Science".
  • The line about being distracted by how "educated stupid" you are is a reference to Time Cube, a site in which the author, Gene Ray rambles constantly about how we have been "educated singularity stupid" and so on. Notably, Prima Vera Angelhair interviewed Gene Ray on Radio KoL, a recording of which can be found here.
