Entry name: Shadow Clone of <Char Name>
Description: No, NOT the shadow clone of a particular orange-jumpsuited ninja. You have slain Carnax and the Devourer, Seekrat and Akriloth, and many, many more horrors, yet how are you to slay their slayer- yourself? OR
Imitation is normally the sincerest form of flattery, but Ultimon's clone of you seems to be the sincerest form of flattening you!
In essence, it is a shadow incarnation of you, formed from your shadow as Ultimon's final gambit to destroy you. It appears to be a silhouette of your weapons, armor and pet, hair, etc. complete with the 'shadow treatment' of a wispy grey outline and red eyes. It has the ability to bypass your defenses and make an attack disregarding them which also treats your elemental modifiers as 150%. Its combat defenses/elemental modifiers will change as you change armor/shields. It usually element seeks between Light and Darkness, but will cast a spell (selected from your spells) to strike at an elemental weakness if possible, and the appropriate amount of mana is deducted.
All are (YourModifier*2), except for Light and Darkness which are (YourModifier/2).
All are (YourAttribute*1.5).
Its HP and MP are yours, modified by its stats.
Every turn it will gain SP equal to your SP gain, and at 250 SP it will attempt to perform an attack that treats your combat defenses as 0 and all elemental modifiers as 150%.
*Your clone sneaks through your shadow to strike true behind your armor!
Its modifiers change to replicate the stats of your gear. Its damage also change to replicate that of your weapon, but the element still seeks between Light and Darkness. The type of damage is determined by your weakest combat defence (e.g. if your lowest defense is magic, it will do magic damage)
*Your clone adapts to the sudden shift in your appearance!
Its stats will modify itself based on any stat-modifying items you have. The increase in stat is equal to (YourStatIncrease*1.5). Whenever this happens, a message appears:
Your clone overSHADOWS your stat boosts!
It will occasionally cast a spell, selected from your own, if your Light and Darkness modifiers are the same, or if there is an element modifier higher than Light/Darkness. BRS of the spell is still the same, appropriate mana is deducted.
*Your clone draws upon its magical reserves to cast- hey, isn't that YOUR spell? I call copyright infringement!
It can heal itself when its HP.MP is at or below 1/3. Amount healed is equivalent to two potions, and will stop when the equivalent to your own stock of potions is consumed.
*Your clone rejuvenates itself by drinking a potion... don't ask me how it can do that.
Entry name: Shad-O-Nomicon
Description: Summoning Cosmic Horrors for Dummies is not responsible for any and all deaths, injuries, mutilations or being-driven-insane-by-demonic-entities-ations caused by misuse (or correct use, for that matter!) of this book. Copyleft Ultimon 2012. Not all rights reserved- but who needs rights when you can destroy everything with alien shadow tentacles of DOOM?
Misc item. A nod to the Necronomicon of H.P. Lovecraft, it contains all of Ultimon's secrets of summoning shadow. It is simply a bound book with six clasps, one clasp disappearing each turn.* At the beginning of the seventh turn, however, you cast a spell (SP is deducted instead, equivalent to the total SP deducted for six turns on a misc with PLvl equal to level of this item)**. This spell does 5 hits, seeking between light and darkness. After this, a message appears*** and a guest called Shad-ulhu**** is summoned. Shad-ulhu is, basically, a shadow version of Cthulhu, and fills up your 'half' of the screen with its head and upper body.
*A wisp of shadow escapes from the book...
**The book opens and you glimpse upon the unthinkable!
***ph'nglui mglw'nafh Shad-ulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn
**** The Lv150G version is called 'Yog-Shaddoth'. The message is "y'ai'ng'ngah Yog-Shaddoth h'ee-l'geb UAAAH!" instead. Everything else is the same.
Shad-thulhu (Yog-Shaddoth for Lv150G) has the stats thus:
Level: Lv of Misc.
PLvl: Lv of Misc.
Upkeep: 1/16 of your current HP and MP, rounded up*. If you cannot do this, Shad-thulhu vanishes.
*The entity of shadows saps at your life and sanity!
**The cosmic entity vanishes to torture more souls... don't worry, he'll be back!
Attack rate: [100% + CHA/2]%
Rate at -66% CHA- 67%
Rate at 0 CHA- 100%
ATTACK#1 (4 Tentacles lash out at the enemy)
Type: Opponent's lowest combat defence
Element: Seeks between light and darkness
Damage: Equivalent of 4 attacks with your current weapon in current armor.
BTH: Same as current weapon in current armor
ATTACK #2 (Screen fades to black, and a web of cracks like that on glass appears on the enemy's location. A window splintering can be heard if sound is turned on.)
Type: Opponent's lowest combat defence
This attack inflicts Fear, Blind, Paralysis, Sanity Leech (essentially a renamed Psionic Link) of Plvl equal to level of misc, Paradigm Shift (essentially a renamed Poison, but not treated as such) of Plvl equal to level of misc. Opponent takes -50 to its save.
The spell (mentioned far, far above) takes the appearance of the player rising into the air, engulfed by shadow, and releasing an explosion of energy from the player's head.
The misc comes in Lv 105, 120, 135 and 150G varieties.
