JL: Get out of the wall.


Nahhh, you think you'll wait here. That thing seems uninterested in CAPY BARFA, and you're pretty hurt. It can't reach you up here, see?

Plus you're kinda wedged.



RT: Get GLASS CANNON and help JL
You go upstairs to LUMP CORNER BETA and find your GLASS CANNON all ready to be taken.


Sorta looks like a capybara now that you look at it in person.

Hm. Though you should probably put on some ARMOR and go find your WEAPONS. You usually keep them in your ROOM on the SECOND FLOOR.

Though, eh, you may wanna change it up a little, make some new stuff. Depends on how you're feeling.

Ahh, yes, your LUMP TERRARIUM. This thing is used to CREATE and UPGRADE PETS AND FAMILIARS.


But you fucking hate animals. You just have it here to bolster your LUMP APPLIANCE COLLECTION.


Next to it is the LUMP WASHING MACHINE. That's used to make your ARMOR and CLOTHES. You're sort of a fashionista. If only your clothing appeared in the artstyle.

And your LUMP PRINTER is used for making DEPLOYABLES like the GLASS CANNON, and TURRETS, and AUTO HEALERS and shit. You're fond of making robots with it. You're terrible at it, but fond nonetheless.

RT: Suit up.

You grab the GLASS CANNON and proceed.




RT: So what're we dealing with here?
JL: big bad duder made outta lumps, nasty

You enter your ROOM. There's your AIR MATTRESS, you like it better than one with springs.


You see your ARMOIRE and your GUNSAFE. You are quite fond of CRAFTING and SHOOTING GUNS. Not, like, redneck gun-owner, think that one guy who liked guns and came up with ballistic tracking. Your modus operandi involves using rifles, pistols, revolvers, shotguns, the like. As long as it SHOOTS REAL GOOD.

You have quite a few guns, too many to list, so you just decide to take your MOSSY RIFLE. Its bullets grow moss on the enemy which drains its energy and siphons it to you.

Somehow.

Armor is an entirely different matter. You like to make many different kinds of armor, but based on JL's description, you should probably take your SMASH RESISTANT armor - it's highly likely a giant cyclops thing would use that DAMAGE TYPE.

You'll get dressed later. You want to have a super badass reveal don't like moving around with your armor on, it can be a bit heavy when not INVENTORIED.

RT: Go smash some face with mossy gun
Hold it. You hear... something.

Better be real careful.

You hide behind a corner and start quietly humming the mission impossble theme.



Hmmm... sounds like...

YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE.



A RAMPANT CRABBOY. Just as you thought.

RT: Smack it with your gun.

You do not have the SMACK action! Your current ATTACK ACTION is SHOOT.


So you do that instead.





You take a potshot with your MOSSY GUN.

















Cool. You turned him to ash.


You gain no levels. Stronger monsters must be fought to gain any EXPERIENCE.


Even though you're pretty sure that guy was pretty damn strong. Well, you've been HUNTING COLOSSAL GAME for a while.

Monsters usually don't exist, though. Hm. You totally thought JL was joking about that.

The monster dropped a CRABBOY HAT.

Speaking of you should really make sure your neighbor doesn't die, he still owes you like $20.

[hide=convo]RT: That guy was pretty tough. I actually got a little bit of experience from 'em.
JL: so uhhhhhhh thanks i guess.
RT: Come outside. I need to show you something.


RT leaves the foyer to go outside with the eye.
