This is a fierce white snake. Like a drifter, it was born to slither alone.

Hit Message(s):

It starts to rock you like a hurricane, then realizes it's not a scorpion and bites you instead. Ugh! Ow!

It makes up it's [sic] mind that it ain't wastin' no more time, and quickly sinks its fangs into your <giblets>. Oof! Ugh!

It starts to wait on love's sweet charity. While it's waiting, it decides to chomp on your <solar plexus>. Argh! Ouch!

Here it goes again, sinking its fangs into your <ear>. Ooh! Eek!

Critical Hit Message:

It finds a hidden cache of heavy, wrapped parcels on the battleground. It picks them up in its mouth, then uses its tongue to flick them rapidly at you, bruising your <foot> and your <knee>. Damn parcels! Damn tongue! Ouch! Oof!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to rock you like a hurricane, but you remind it that it's not a scorpion.

It starts to bite you again, but can't make up its mind whether to waste more time before doing so.

It starts to chomp on your <giblets>, but decides to wait on love's sweet charity.

Here it goes again on its own, trying to sink its fangs into your <eye>. But you dodge before he gets a mouthful.

Fumble Message:

It starts to attack again, then sinks despairingly to the ground. "You know," it says, "I never seem to find what I'm looking for." You respond, "You too? Man, I still haven't found what I'm looking for, either." (FUMBLE!)

History

  • The image for this monster used to be this:

    • Jick's wife teased him until he improved it, but Mr. Skullhead has stated on the radio show (26th Feb 2007) that he prefers Jick's original drawing.

References

  • The adventure title and monster description reference hair-metal band Whitesnake, which had a major hit with "Here I Go Again" on its 1987 album Whitesnake 1987: "Here I go again on my own / Like a drifter I was born to walk alone." The companion video featured a scantily clad Tawny Kitaen who was later charged with battering her then-husband, pitcher Chuck Finley of the Cleveland Indians.
  • "Rock you like a hurricane" is a reference to a different metal band, Scorpions, and its song Rock You Like a Hurricane from its 1984 album Love at First Sting.
  • The critical hit message refers to Parseltongue, the language of snakes in the popular Harry Potter series.
  • The fumble message refers to the band U2, and their song "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".
  • The new snake image is similar to Sly from the flash game The Asylum.
