the great ESKIMO said:i think i might just fit Arma's description almost perfectly.
:lol That is probably one of the funniest explanations I have ever heard! But true. By the way it's not a dumb question there was a time when none of us knew what a a squid was.tripod said:The Squid is a beast with extremely high speed and maneuverability, but low
intelligence, low hit points, low experience and low offensive capability. The Squid is
largely dismissed as an endangered species with little danger to an average warrior. In
fact, because of its high speed, low armor and low hit probability, Squids are primarily a
danger to themselves and their mates, although Squids accidentally kill themselves at a
ratio of more than 10 to 1 over their mates. The breed is largely alive due to a male
creature called the ‘High School Student’ which can morph into a Squid, thereby
continuing the species as Squids rarely live to reproduce.
“The Squid's only serious offensive capability is the ‘Crash’ during which the Squid rams
its opponent, primarily a creature called the ‘Car.’ However, the Crash is almost always
fatal to the Squid and rarely does more than a few hit points of damage to the Car. Squids
have been known to use the Crash against a related and more vulnerable species called
the ‘Enthusiast.’ Most Enthusiasts simply avoid the Squid as a defensive maneuver. The
more serious danger to the Enthusiast is a Squid's only other offensive capability, which
is a rudimentary magic spell called the ‘Pass.’ The Pass causes a decrease in intelligence
and an increase in speed for the duration of the spell. The Pass causes the Enthusiast to
behave as a Squid for a brief but dangerous period of time and can cause a ‘Crash’ which
is almost always fatal. Italian Enthusiasts are very vulnerable to the Pass, while American
and German Enthusiasts are virtually invulnerable due to a defense called the ‘Leather
Jacket of Indifference.’ The Pass is most effective against other Squids or Japanese
Enthusiasts. However, a new breed of Enthusiast called the ‘Buell’ is as vulnerable as the
Italian Enthusiast to the Pass."
