I killed a bronze colossus, and you'll never guess how
« on: May 09, 2010, 01:36:24 pm »

So, I'm just wandering along through this forest, looking for a cave where I could maybe kill some dragons or something and get their fat loot. This was shortly after I had gotten my throwing to legendary +2 (remember this).

I came across a cave and thought, "Well, maybe it'll be filled with giants or something."

Wrong.

There was a bronze colossus.

He told me his name then proceeded to bum rush down the side of the mountain after me. Tripping over my feet, I tried to run away and disturbed a nest of fluffy wamblers at the bottom of the mountain. They immediately spread forth in a great cloud at my feet. So, I did as any adventurer would do. I stuffed them in my backback in an attempt to make some money out of this encounter.

Maybe I could sell them or something.

The bronze colossus was coming up from behind when I was struck with the awesome idea to begin throwing these bunnies at the bronze colossus.

The result was astonishing, and I could do nothing but stand up from my computer with my fist held high in the air, because I had just beaten the game.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Then I proceeded to pick up the rest of the bunnies, the masterfully crafted bronze statue, and its head. The head will be his trophy... But I need money.

If I remember correctly, its part of Phoebus's tileset. You can get it here: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=52186

Yep.

Sadly, after a long trek back to town, I found that you cannot sell bunnies :(

Goddamnit, if only you had entered the lottery instead of going on a stroll to find dragonloot. You'd be rich with that luck. I mean, the odds...

Getting lucky with throwing isn't that hard. Just pick up something with a relatively high weight (more than two) and get your throwing up to legendary. If you hit them in the head it'll either come off completely or crush the skull and destroy the brain.

You do realize that you can smash a bc's head in 10000 times with a hammer and it won't do anything, right?

Yeah, but you can knock it off with relative ease. The body parts can be severed, but not smashed. The only problem is that it's too tall to hit the head. However, throwing blunt stuff at its head seems to work.

Was that a particularly fat fluffy wambler, then?

Yeah, my guy opened up his backpack and picked out the plumpest fluffy wambler that he could grab, balled it up into a compact sphere, and threw it as hard as he could at the colossus... Awesome...
