menacing construct You're fighting a menacing construct

You step through the shimmering portal and find yourself in a long, dimly-lit corridor. The hum of machinery fills the air, the deep, almost imperceptible vibrations filling you with a sense of foreboding. Maybe even fiveboding. You're about to start exploring, when you hear a bellowing voice from behind you.

"INTRUDER DETECTED. INITIATING DEFENSIVE BEHAVIOR SEQUENCE."

You wheel around to see the source of the voice -- a strange construct, aiming what appears to be some sort of gun at you. How exotic!

Hit Message(s):

The construct glides toward you and clotheslines you with one of the beams of energy holding it together. It hurts way, way more than a regular clothesline would've.

The construct points its gun-like appendage at you and fires a bolt of energy at your <groin>. It leaves a smoking hole and a noticable residue of pain.

The construct sweeps a beam of energy across you, slicing and burning you from <giblets> to <throat>.

Critical Hit Message:

The construct bellows "OPTIMAL TARGET METRIC ESTABLISHED." It then fires a beam of energy through your skull and directly into your brain.

Miss Message(s):

The construct sweeps a beam of energy across the room, but you utilize your mad jump-rope skills to avoid it. Did I mention you had mad jump-rope skills before? Well, I should've.

The construct glides toward you and tries to hit you with the butt of its "gun." You sidestep it, making it the butt of your "joke."

The construct points its gun-like appendage at you and fires bolt of energy that narrowly misses your <knee>. "CRAP," it bellows.

Fumble Message:

The construct bellows "SYSTEM FAILURE. REACQUIRING TARGET," as it first spins in place, then glides in ever-expanding circles, ignoring you completely. (FUMBLE!)
