Mind Flayers will fall

Post by plane_abe on Fri Sep 02, 2011 9:21 pm

So Ivellios was in the mind flayer enclaves, and gets to the boss chamber. As usual, he kills the elder brain, and then I accidentally equip his longbow. Shoot a Mind Flayer, and its extracts his brain. After two rounds, he breaks free and punches it so hard that it literally explodes. I found that quite fun.

A haymaker is a sort of barrelling, throw-all-your-weight-behind-it punch that is intended to knock the stuffing out of whatever it hits. Usually when someone throws a "haymaker" they swing with so much force that if they miss they end up so off balance they almost fall over (and even sometimes if they *do* hit, they still almost fall over).

From Wikipedia:

Haymaker :

A punch in which the arm is whipped sideways from the shoulder joint with minimal elbow bend. The name is derived from the motion, which mimics the action of manually cutting hay by swinging a scythe. The most frequent and effective cause of a one-punch knockout or kill. Since a haymaker's power is derived from weight transfer and momentum instead of muscle contraction, a long windup is required to generate sufficient force. Haymakers are frequently used from a mounted position in mixed martial arts as part of the "ground and pound" method, as the legs cannot be used to generate power. These punches pack power, but leave the person vulnerable to a counter punch during the wind up or if the haymaker misses generally when both combatants are standing.[12]


With this in mind, I was calling Ivellios' punch that splattered the Illithid a Haymaker of Doom
