The Barrelmech of Diogenes You're fighting The Barrelmech of Diogenes

The final slats of the huge barrel fall away, and inside you discover... more barrels? A huge pile of them? But wait -- they're moving! They rise and shift and lock in place with booming hollow clonking sounds, forming a massive structure that gradually unfolds into a towering humanoid form -- a huge wooden battle-robot!

A hatch opens in the figure's head, and little old man with a scraggly white beard and filthy linen tunic pops up, his fists raised triumphantly in the air. "It works!" he shouts. "It works! And now I'll show them the value of simplicity and austerity! I'll show them all! I shall use artifice against artifice and destroy all the false works of mankind! He who owns nothing has nothing to lose!"

Hit Message(s):

"No man is hurt but by himself!" Diogenes shouts as he stomps on you. "Or by my giant barrel robot!" Oof! Oof! Eek! Oof! Ow!

"Of what use is a philosopher that doesn't hurt anybody's feelings?" he asks, and then takes the direct approach to this goal by crushing your skull. Ooh! Ow! Ow! Ugh! Eek!

He comes down on you like a tun of bricks. Oof! Ooh! Eek! Ouch! Oof!

Critical Hit Message:

Diogenes cackles from above while stomping on you with his giant barrel feet. "Sooner or later, everybody puts up with Diogenes!" he crows. (CRITICAL HIT!) Ugh! Argh! Oof! Ow! Argh!

Miss Message(s):

Diogenes tries to stomp on you with his giant barrel feet, but he's a bit too ponderous and you easily dodge.
