|Burning Snake of Fire|
|Locations||The Castle in the Clouds in the Sky (Top Floor)|
|Monster Parts||flame, head, tail|
|Quest||Murphy's Rancid Black Flag|
You peer down into the punk rock giant's terrarium. There's a gigantic snake down there, but you're more interested in what it's wrapped around: an ebony scrap of cloth that could only be Murphy's Rancid Black Flag.
You rappel down to the terrarium, trying not to spook the snake, but it spots you. "Oi!" it says, "you're not hardcore enough to be in here! Look at me! I used to be a lizard, but I threw gasoline on a fire and now I have stumps for arms and no eyebrows! Allow me to demonstrate!" It flicks its tail out, grabs a smoldering cigarette from the giant ashtray on the shelf next to the terrarium, and ignites itself with the butt, becoming a snake wreathed in flame.
It blows a fireball at you, sizzling parts of you that you'd rather have unsizzled. Eek! Ooh! Argh! (hot damage)
It gives you a blitzkrieg bop on your head with its flaming noggin. Ugh! Ow! Ugh! (hot damage)
It wraps you in a steaming coil and squeezes, searing and asphyxiating you at the same time. Ooh! Ugh! Eek! (hot damage)
It wraps you in its sizzling coils, puffs hot breath on you, then stabs you with red-hot fangs. Now you know how a hot dog feels when it's being cooked, if you didn't already. Ooh! Oof! Oof! (hot damage)
It blows a fireball at you, but you blow a kiss back.
It tries to blitzkrieg bop you, but you're not some teenage lobotomy, so you dodge.
It gnashes its red-hot fangs at you, but you tell it, "no fangs."
It spits boiling venom at you, but you dodge with a blitzkrieg bop to the left.
It tries to whip its tail at you, but its bad brains make it just a minor threat.
It tries to give you a warm hug, but you think that hug would be a little too warm and dodge.
You ask it if pop-punk is a valid subgenre of the music it prefers. It stops attacking to hold forth with a lengthy rant on how the new bands are failing to keep it real. (FUMBLE!)
