Stacie (cowmingo) | 4770 comments Monsters
You may venture out into the surrounding regions of the kingdom to fight monsters and hone your combat skills. Killing monsters will let you gain experience and maybe even special items to help you in your travels. Some monsters are common while others are nearing extinction.

Attacking
• Fights alternate between yourself (The Hero) and the monster.
• First the hero attacks the monster, if the monster is still alive, the hero takes damage equal to the attack power of the monster.
• Certain potions or effects may influence the attack power and affects of the weapons.
• Some monsters may be more susceptible to certain weapons.
• The same weapon may be used multiple times per fight.

Example of an Attack
Attack Monster - 6 Attack 10 Health - Reward: 3 Experience
Hero: Level 3 Magic Staff (5 Attack) Level 4 Sword (6 Attack), 10 Health

•Hero Attacks Monster with Magic Staff (5 Attack) => Monster: 5 Health Remaining
•Monster Attacks Hero (6 Attack) => Hero: 4 Health Remaining
•Hero Attacks Monster with Sword (6 Attack) => Monster: Dead
•Hero: Gain 3 Experience.

Common Monster Type: Last Killed: XX/XX/XXXX, Available Next: XX/XX/XXXX + 1 week

You cannot attack monster if your health is at 0.
Your health does not go below 0. (Example: Hero Health 1, Monster attacks for 5, Hero Health is 0).

Bestiary of the World
Common Monsters - Common monsters exist everywhere in staggering amounts. After you kill one though the others scurry back into their holes for a week. You may either wait a week for them to become hungry and venture out again or bribe them out by using one of your spare books. Unfortunately, books used in this way are eaten and aren't good for anything else.
• Goblin - A green little angry fellow that likes to stab weary (and unweary) travelers with sharp pointy sticks.
6 Attack 10 Health - Reward: 1 Experience, 1 Goblin Bone

• Sewer Rat - The bane of all young hero's, the iconic sewer rat. Biting at ankles, he makes his presence known one nip and nibble at a time.
3 Attack 5 Health - Reward: 1 Experience

• Brown Bat - The brown bats are much prettier than the black bats because of their grace, stamina and ability to make a lovely bat leather hat.
3 Attack 15 Health - Reward: 1 Experience, 1 Bat Wing


Uncommon Monsters - Each of these monsters only has a limited population left. After exhausting the remaining population they will be extinct. Since there are so few of these monsters, they stick around each other like glue. Killing one won't scare off the others.
• Omnibus Troll - The Omnibus Troll is the perfect mix of all trolls in one. It's big and ugly and can occasionally sing Disney based songs when near donkeys. (Population: 3)
7 Attack 35 Health - Reward: 3 Experience, 1 Heal Potion.

• Lexicon Ness Monster - The Lexicon Ness Monster is a close cousin of another more popular lake dwelling creature. It spends it's days frolicking in the water, making bubbles and eating unsuspecting boaters. (Population: 2)
10 Attack 30 Health - Reward: 3 Experience, 1 Minor Poison Potion.

• Big Heart (starting 2/1/15) - A large pinkish Yeti that only shows up during Hallmark holidays. It has a big heart and a soft spot for weakness. Use your weaker (lower level) weapon for an additional 2 damage. If your weapons are the same strength either may be used. (Population: 2)
4 Attack 40 Health - Reward: 3 Experience, 1 Find Items Potion (You found the yeti, now let the yeti find other things).


Rare Monsters - Only one of each of these monsters exist in the world. Killing them will be challenging but will reap great rewards.
• Great Red Dragon - A flaming fiery beast with one molten eye that gleams with the fires of.... well, you know. This beast is highly magical. Your magic staff will only do half of it's normal damage however your sword has an additional 2 attack against this beast.
15 Attack 50 Health - Reward: 30 Experience, Orb of Fire (Adds 3 attack to a magic staff)

• Great Green Dragon - This earth dragon lives deep under a mountain of steel. This beast has become almost immune to the touch of a sword but fire will soften his armor. Your sword will only do half of it's normal damage however your magic staff has an additional 2 attack against this beast.
18 Attack 40 Health - Reward: 30 Experience, Orb of Earth (Adds 3 attack to a sword)

• Great Blue Dragon - This dragon rules the seas, and lakes, and streams, and inlets, and fjords and probably lots of other water related terms. Both of your weapons have a tendency to hit a bit softer on this beast (half as hard if you want to know specifics). However, for each healing potion you use, the blue dragon loses 5 health points.
15 Attack 60 Health - Reward: 30 Experience, Orb of Water (Automatically heal one health at the end of every fight)

• Great Yellow Dragon - This dragon rules the air. Yes... Like all the other flying dragons. But this one rules it extra special. Your one advantage is bat wings. Yes, bat wings. You can use 2 bat wings for a turn to fly up and meet the dragon on it's own turf and increase your attack power by 5!
15 Attack 80 Health - Reward: 30 Experience, Orb of Air (For quests requiring 4 or more items, this reduces the amount of items needed for a quest by 1).

• Great Novel Dragon - The king of all dragons, the Great Novel Dragon has been featured in stories far and wide. To fell this mighty beast you must be the strongest of all the hero's in all the lands in all the worlds in all the universes and so on and so forth.
25 Attack 150 Health - Reward: 50 Experience, Title of Power (The next NBRC newsletter will hail your praise as the "Great Novel Dragon Slayer" and you will receive a place in the Hall of Fame.)
