What a morning...
You didn't think we got this armor for free did you?
I fight beetles all morning to get a chest key. Finally, I get one to drop and I start looking for a chest.
I run past Stroper Chyme and wave hi. He's a nice guy. And that's funny considering he's never actually lived for more than 3 seconds at a time.
Then, it's around all the usual spots upstairs...
Here's the part I hate. The drop to the lower level. I hold my breath and jump...
And land on a freakin' Stroper. Big and green and double ugly. He starts spouting off and I go to argue. Then his breath hits me. Daaaaaaaaaaaamn.
I take off running with still no chest in sight. I'm getting really annoyed.
And then I see it. Off in the distance is a treasure chest. Finally, I can get my goblin RSE pointy-crotch subligar.
I'm so happy that I barely feel the first hit. The second, though... that one hurt. Three through ten are terrible.
I glance over my shoulder (which is not easy in this helmet) and see a Monk right behind me. And he's swinging hard.
Get the chest. Kill the Monk. Get the chest. Kill the Monk.
Oh you soooooooooooo know I went to kill that Monk. Kill him in the face.
So, I turn and start stabbing.
GoblinSmithy>> Know what you face needs? More knife.
But then I notice something. My hit points are going down faster than his. WAY faster.
Apparently the face-killing will have to be postponed.
Thinking quick, I turn and run for the chest. I grab my key and try to put it in the lock, but it slips sideways. Before I can try again, the Monk takes one final swing and it's over.
And by it's over, I mean I'm over. So close and yet so far.
Monk>> Hey! He dropped a chest key. ^^
The Monk literally steps over my still warm body and pops MY treasure chest.
I hate people.
