Just when I thought I had seen it all, I was attacked by the weirdest creature I’ve seen on this planet yet. If challenged to describe it in human terms, it was a squid. But this planet seems to have squid already – I can see them out in the water sometimes when I fish.
And those squid look like squid – multiple tentacles, mouth at the bottom, etc. etc. Whereas the horror squid was easily 10 feet tall, thin, black, and walking on the very tips of its multiple appendages. Also, two of those appendages were up high like arms.
And the noise! It was like someone was trying to tune an electric guitar with a cat. It hovered in my basement and made belching noises until, I don’t know, I got too close or something. Then it flat-out attacked me as if I was the worst thing it’d ever seen and I was sure I was a goner, probably to be eaten. It knocked me out.
When I came to, I was outside my house. I don’t know why it dragged me out and dropped me, but I’m not overly happy about it.
I went back inside my house and it was still in the basement, rooting through my stuff! I grabbed my stone sword and just pounded the heck out of it, eventually killing it. Unfortunately, like all the other unfriendly fauna here, it just exploded into dust. (The friendly fauna, like chickens, leave you a body behind to pluck and clean and eat.)
After killing the horror squid I realized that my food supplies were really low, so I spent the rest of the day fishing, thanks to some silk line a spider had dropped a few days ago. (Maybe something else ate the spider? Before I would have said that nothing could eat the great black pony spider, but having met the horror squid, I could be very very wrong.)
I caught another pair of boots and a very damaged bow, which strengthens my belief that the sea I’m fishing in happens to be over someone else’s garbage dump or shoe store or something.
Man, that horror squid really shook me up. I’m even dreaming about its horrible belching noises and its catgut guitar scream.
