You make your way further down the corridor.

You find yourself in a narrow hallway with no doors or windows. An ancient man stands in front of you, blocking your way. He holds out his hand and you see a pebble in it. He says:

"Greetings, warrior.
Snatch the pebble from my hand.
I will let you pass."


Distract him and sneak away.

"Like a summer breeze
you pass by, unseen by all,
breaking like the wind."

"You try to sneak by
but the sensei's eyes are sharp.
He smacks you right down."

You have failed the Most Extreme Haiku Dungeon Challenge.

Quickly grab the stone.

"You snatch the pebble,
owning that old kung-fu dude.
He lets you pass by."

or

"Swift hands have you, sure,
But his are far, far swifter.
Ouch! That really stings!"

You have failed the Most Extreme Haiku Dungeon Challenge.

Kick him square in the shins.

"Nice try, genius.
Your kung-fu is pretty weak.
Now you can see stars."

You have failed the Most Extreme Haiku Dungeon Challenge.

Notes

  • Part of the Haiku Quest. If this is the first or third room you encounter, the correct response is the five-syllable "Quickly grab the stone." If this is the second room, the correct response is the seven-syllable "Distract him and sneak away." Either way, you move on, either to the next room or to successful completion of the quest.

References

  • Grabbing the pebble from the sensei's hand is a likely nod to the 1972 TV series Kung Fu.
