this is your warning. if you are not going to participate in boss battle: level one, note the group now so we can make sure you're put on the list of the excused.

reminder: we will be dealing with Entomophobia, the fear of insects. The level will also include arachnids, worms, and true bugs.

put all of your event pictures in the correct folders.



c r a w l e r   b u g















d o insec ts feel?

can they h u r t?







d o human s feel?

can they h u r t?







y o u agree more- w-i-t-h the second statement, right?
we know.
we know your ignorance.

we will make you hurt.
j u s t as we have for an eternity.







HOW DOES IT F E E L

TO BE POKED AND PRODDED WITH STICKS AND METALS

BURNED IN THE SUNLIGHT

DROWNED IN THE MOONLIGHT

FELLOW L I V I N G CREATURES ON THIS E AR TH

YOU ARE NO FRIENDS OF OURS.







what







shall i do with you?







suck out all of your blood while you still live? while you feel your organs fail, your body shrivel up, your mind turn black until it's nothing, nothing, no th in g

will you s cream?

should i trap you tightly in my web and toy with you before i slowly rip your limbs off o n e by o n e ??  
tear little holes in your skin, hear it rip wider
hear your bones crack and your voice fade away into the darkness?

will you b l e ed?

shall i have my millions of brothers and sisters

c r a w l on you?

on your hands, on your feet, on your chest, on your face

in your eyes, in your mouth, in your ears, in your heart

they'll inject slow, devastating poison
and they will live inside of you
feeding off of your existence as you weep and beg for forgiveness

which we will not listen to.

you can do nothing about it.

will that h u r t?









i d r e a m of revenge



I D R E A M OF C ORRUPTION



I D R E A M OF YOUR DEATH

OF THE DEATH OF ALL OTHERS

YOU ARE NOT HUMANS ANYMORE

YOU ARE OUR PREY

OUR PR E Y

OUR P R E Y

AND NOW THAT YOU'VE COME HERE...





you will never leave.










[ stage o n e ]





general r ules


[ keep in mind when you are making your event submissions ]

○ If you have reached "friend" status or higher with an NPC that can join your party (check their reference picture) then they can come into the boss battle with you and help fight. meaning, you can draw them in too and your player will be less likely to get hurt. Spectre will come no matter what.

○ you may go into the battle alone with Spectre, but it's highly suggested that you bring at least one other player/NPC to ensure that you come out okay. Players may go into the battle in large parties of no more than 5 (not including NPCs).

○ You may use both of your players if you have more than one.

○ as proof that your player participated, we would like you to do something for at least two stages. You may skip one.

○ you do not have to draw the boss in your pictures if you do not want to. but if you wanted a challenge...






[ You are outside. This is a strange, dangerous place. One you've never been to before. It smelled terrible, like every corrupted creature you've ever met. There was absolutely no sound at all aside from your own breathing, heartbeat, and the footsteps of you and your companions. Villagers are nowhere to be seen. There aren't any other living creatures at all. ]



[ Keys: ] "'Aight kiddos, now that we're here, I'll hafta warn ya..."



[ Keys: ] "This dude is SERIOUSLY not okay."



[ Spectre: ] "Crawler bug!!"



[ Keys: ] "YEAH, HIM. Watch the hell out, guys. This boss is like over ten feet tall, filled with creepy crawlies, and-- well, you'll see I guess. I think you'll be fine as long as you uh, hmm..."



[ Keys: ] "Don't get squashed?"  



[ Spectre: ] "Burn him!"



[ Keys: ] "HAHAHAHA yeah, that! Okay, well, good luck I guess. See ya later...maybe."



[ Keys: ] "Sorry I can't come with, but I ain't much of a fighter and I, uh...wanna live another day."



[ He leads you through a door, and you are supposedly here. The Boss battle room. It is pitch black for a moment before you see the room start to slowly fill with dim light. The door closes behind you. If you wanted to turn back, it's too late now. ]



[ You hear the sound of wings flapping-- dozens of tiny, insect wings. Something is tapping on the ground, the sound growing louder with every second. Footsteps? But those didn't sound like normal feet at all... ]



[ ???: ] "Eeeheeeheeeee..."

» ...Who was that?



[ ???: ] "HEEEEEEE!"

» You must be...!



[ Spectre: ] "CRAWLER BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUG!!"



[ Crawler Bug: ] "FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! "

» BATTLE, START!





[ TIPS!: ] to participate in the fighting stages, all you need to do is pick an action/attack that Crawler Bug does and draw or RP your characters/party reacting to it. Whether they are hit or dodge and manage to fight back is up to you. Crawler Bug will keep coming regardless. Feel free to use Spectre as a shield. Think of this as a half-written script-- You need your player to fill in the gaps. (You don't have to fill in EVERY gap, just one will still count)




HP: 300/300
[ Crawler Bug Reference ]



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Look at you lot! So tiny! I think I'll crush you...SQUISH, SQUISH!"



[ ATTACK ] Crawler Bug aims his feet at you and Spectre and strikes.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Oh, that wasn't enough..."



[ ATTACK ] Crawler Bug takes his claws and punches them onto the ground beside you, knocking you off your feet.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "*HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS*"



[ RETREAT ] Something has hit Crawler Bug, so he scurries off to the other side of the room. He makes quiet humming noises with his wings and taps his front legs on the ground. You realize that he is calling something-- someone.



[ ATTACK ] Bugs swarm up and down your legs, trying to distract you. You have to hurry and get them off before Crawler Bug comes again!



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Hehehe, you look really funny! Are you dancing? Ants in your pants? Want to taste something nice?"



[ ATTACK ] He runs up to you so fast you may not have time to react, and both of his stingers try to stab at you at the same time. If these hit you, you will be poisoned! This poison is not deadly, but dulls your senses so you are slower to move and react.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Snap, snap!"



[ ATTACK ] Well, now he's trying to bite you. This will also poison you if you let it hit.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "ARRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHHHH!!!"



[ RETREAT ] Crawler Bug takes flight, moving to a corner in the ceiling. He places himself on a spider web and glares at you with all eyes.




HP: 200/300







[ stage t w o ]





HP: 200/300
[ Crawler Bug Reference ]




[ Crawler Bug: ] "Heh...?"

[ Crawler Bug: ] "I-- You were...too strong?"



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Auuruughh... blleuughh..."

[ Crawler bug scurries as far away from you as possible, looking very sick. You don't approach him. Something doesn't feel right. ]

[ Crawler Bug: ] "Aggghhh..."



[ Crawler Bug: ] "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

[ A deafening screech. You stare in horror at the sight of the creature's own body splitting apart and falling to the side like two empty shells. A long, fresh centipede-like body replaces the old beetle-like one. Crawler Bug falls over in his own blood and fluids from lack of balance, staying still for a long time. Even the insects scuttling around were now silent. That couldn't have killed him...? ]

[ Crawler Bug: ] "... *cough*"

[ Of course. You can hear the disgusting wet sounds as Crawler Bug slowly rises from his insect guts puddle and to become aware of his surroundings once again. He tilts his head and looks at you. Seeing him now, you realize that he has definitely made some kind of transformation. He had no arms and seemed to be bleeding black ooze everywhere (which was your team's doing, admittedly), but his new body was tough. His attitude seemed...calmer. Less insane. Serious. ]



[ Crawler Bug: ] "I'll stop playing around."



[ Spectre: ] "Hrk...!"



[ Crawler Bug: ] "I'll call my bigger friends. I cannot afford to let you leave here. Nothing will stop me from killing all of you. You will be torn apart."



[ Spectre: ] "You can do it, player! Heehee!"


» STAGE TWO, START!





[ TIPS!: ] to participate in the fighting stages, all you need to do is pick an action/attack that Crawler Bug does and draw or RP your characters/party reacting to it. Whether they are hit or dodge and manage to fight back is up to you. Crawler Bug will keep coming regardless. Feel free to use Spectre as a shield. Think of this as a half-written script-- You need your player to fill in the gaps. (You don't have to fill in EVERY gap, just one will still count)

[ TIPS!: ] once in stage two, Crawler Bug uses his giant mutated insects to attack you and will never try to hit you directly. You need to get closer, but be quick enough so that he doesn't have time to defend himself! It's kind of hard to do that when he's surrounded by monsters...




[ Crawler Bug: ] "...Take care of those things."



[ ATTACK ] Crawler Bug summons his giant centipede and hornet, who both come at you at full force. Be careful, these are not your average insects! The centipede has razor sharp teeth (since when were centipedes that dangerous?!) and will try to hold you with all of it's legs so it can shred your face to pieces. The hornet spits acid and can sting you multiple times. Not very surprising. Hornets are assholes.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Did you destroy them? You weren't watching your feet..."



[ ATTACK ] Crawler Bug had summoned millions of small parasites while you were distracted, and now they're all over your legs! You can't tell if they're only sucking your blood or eating at your flesh...gross!!



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Burst."



[ ATTACK ] Crawler Bug's minions force their way into your mouth, ears, and nose. Just as he said they would. If you let this happen, too many will get inside you and you will really burst.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Ergh! How...?!"



[ DEFENSE ] When you attack Crawler Bug, his body curls up around him and he defends himself. You can't hit him effectively when he's like this.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Too close..."



[ ATTACK ] He swings his yellow web at you and you're caught in it, rendered immobile. He summons three giant widows: red, brown, and black. Hopefully you can bail yourself out of this situation somehow before the black one finishes you off.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Tch!"



[ RETREAT ] He failed to defend from one of your attacks and slaps you away, running fast in the other direction.



HP: 100/300






stage t h r e e





HP: 100/300
[ Crawler Bug Reference ]





[ Crawler Bug: ] "..."

[ Crawler Bug: ] "...It's come to this."









[ He goes into what you can only assume is his final form. It should be, anyways. He doesn't look like he has much left in him... The moths flying around his body look oddly out of place. ]



[ Crawler Bug: ] "I...don't understand... How were you so strong?"

[ Crawler Bug: ] "Were you more determined than I was...? But I... I need my revenge... I need to kill you..."



[ Crawler Bug: ] "WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT? I'M NOT DEAD YET!"

[ You don't like where this is going. You need to end this, but you can't get close enough to do so without some insect trying to push you back. Maybe if you distracted him somehow, you could calm him down enough to finish everything... ]



[ TIPS!: ] Stage three is special in the sense that it is more talking than fighting. Your job is to reject everything Crawler Bug says and argue with him in your own way. whatever you think will help subdue him. Comment below to do so. You'll see the journal update whenever Crawler Bug says something new.





[ Crawler Bug: ] "You are...no friends of ours..."

[ Crawler Bug: ] "You are...no friends of mine..."

» Uh... Crawler Bug! We can fix this!



[ Crawler Bug: ] "How?"

» How...? _______

» Revenge... Isn't the only way to get your feelings across, you know! I mean you did a pretty good job of showing how angry you are, attacking us and everything, but... There's gotta be a reason for it. You can just tell us!

» Someone may have done something wrong, but we don't know what! If you were to just tell us your problems, then we could help you. It's bad for your mind and bad for your soul. Let us know what is wrong!



[ Crawler Bug: ] "..."

» Why are you doing this?

» Tell us what's wrong!

» Tell

» us

» wha t's

» w r o ng!



[ Crawler Bug is still for a few moments. You can hear him breathing rapidly. He seems to be panicking. ]

[ Crawler Bug: ] "I..I don't... I don't.. I don't kn... KNOW!"



[ Crawler Bug: ] "SHUT UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUP!"

[ He's being completely childish, you realize. In every way. ]

» We can stop with this fighting.

» I really don't want to kill you...

» I'm not your enemy, revenge is. 

» All smiles, forget about the past. Looking forward is the way to do it.

» Perhaps we could try to make peace... I feel terrible for what I've done to your friends!

» We all forgive you. We just want to be friends.

» I promise.

» I'm not going to hurt you.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "WHY ARE YOU ALL LYING?"

[ Crawler Bug: ] "YOU TERRIBLE PLAYERS... HUMANKIND IS BEYOND...ANYTHING BUT HATRED..."

[ Crawler Bug: ] "YOU DON'T THINK BEFORE YOU ACT! YOU DESTROY EVERYTHING SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE POWER! YOU WILL RUIN EVERYTHING... I AM NOT THE LAST TO BE DYING BY YOUR HANDS..."



[ Crawler Bug: ] "I am not the last..."

[ That didn't seem to work. Try again? ]

» We huma-- Players are filled with hate. But also love, fear, anger, surprise and so much more. I must admit, players sometimes let hate fog their vision, but isn't that what you're doing, young man? Aren't you projecting what we did to you and your kind? This ugly emotion that we both share? I don't think it can be erased by... killing us. It would make the feeling stronger. Do you understand, sweetie?



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Why do you sound...like someone familiar..."

» You tried to kill us, remember? We fought back because of that.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "That was not my fault!"

» We fight and we kill and we get angry when we feel like we're not being listened to. We bully those weaker than us, and we break stuff because we want to feel powerful. But if that's what you hate us for, then I'll be the first to point out that you're no different! You found a way to be bigger and stronger than us, so you're using 'revenge' as an excuse to not feel so weak! And maybe you won't be the last insect killed by human hands, but we certainly won't be last to die from your venom and rot, nor the first! You're just the same as us, now!



[ Crawler Bug: ] "WE ARE NOT THE SAME!"

» You could have at least thought to yourself if attacking us without reason was the right thing to do.



» We do not act simply because we can! We are doing as we are told, we are only trying to push back the corruption that fights to consume us, Those of us with no leniency will... try to bring you harm. I cannot speak for them, but others are more forgiving,  Crawler Bug. I don't blame you for anything. I don't blame you for attacking us, as we did intrude upon your home... with cruel intentions. You're trying to protect yourself, as anyone would...

» We're afraid, so we act without giving it much thought. Don't you understand? You're following the same path... the vicious cycle of revenge. Make your own path...

[ Crawler Bug: ] "..."

» I accept that I am hurtful, but will killing me help?  Will it bring back the dead?  Bloodshed doesn't wash away blood, rain does.  All we can do is end the cycle.

» I know it's rude, selfish, and ignorant. But it's part of who we are. Maybe with a little help, we can fix that gap in our moral standing. 

[ Crawler Bug: ] "..."

» We can show you we're not all that bad.. please give us a chance.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "...lies again... I can't trust any of you..."

» Forgiving someone makes you feel stronger and better than getting revenge.

» Can you please forgive us?

» Do you

» know

» h ow

» to

» f o r give?

[ Crawler Bug: ] "That word is poison to me."

» Stand down.

» Calm down.

» We can help you, friend.

» Will you let us help you?

» Just let us help you, just give us a chance to help you through this...



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Stop. I know my fate."

[ Crawler Bug: ] "That doesn't change the fact that you came here to die."

» We love you, Crawler Bug...

[ Crawler Bug: ] "No...you don't..."

[ Crawler Bug: ] "What would happen if... I really had 'friends,' I wonder..."

[ you have gotten close enough. this is your last chance to say something to him. ]

» Friends are there so revenge...or pain isn't necessary. 

» You don't need to wonder anymore

[ Crawler Bug: ] "...?"

» I think it is safe to say that you have at least one new friend. I can try my best to forgive and forget. After you clean yourself up, honey. You're a mess.

» You can do this.

» We can change if we work together

» Doesn't that sound nice?



[ Crawler Bug: ] "...I..."

» Do you really have much more to lose?

» We care for you!

» We can help you, darling. I can't even begin to imagine what your story is like, what you and your kind have gone through. And perhaps I never will... But you don't have to hold on to that vendetta and its pain any longer. We're all trapped with the same fate in this game, but we don't have to act out this story alone.

» Let's write a new chapter together.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Why...?"

» You had friends, you still have friends! Make no mistake, you will be loved as... you are. Even in passing, we would hope you to find peace with us and with yourself... No more lying. No more suffering, no more thoughts of revenge. We'll fix you up champ. I'm here for you.



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Uuuhu..."



[ Crawler Bug: ] "WWwaaaaahhhhhhh!"

[ Your words proved to be too overwhelming for him. He had never heard them before.

He had never even seen anyone besides you. That is how bosses are programmed.

Crawler Bug sobs by himself for a while, and you let him. Sometimes people just need to get it all out.

He had too much hatred inside him.

Much more than any living thing should ever have to hold.

He was never mature enough to understand what 'revenge' really meant.

Confused from the start.

Doomed from the start.
]



[ Crawler Bug: ] "Uuuuhwhhh..."

» Can you forgive?

[ He struggles to reply to you through violent gasps for breath. ]

[ Crawler Bug: ] "I...I c...can...I...nnn..."

» Will you forgive?

[ Crawler Bug: ] "F-forg...ive...Ah--!"

» ?



[ He gasps again, stopping his cries to stare blankly ahead. What h-- ]





[ If you did not kill him, then some outside force did. ]



[ His body turns as dark as coal and dissolves into the air.

You are not permitted to leave yet.
]



purification





[ Everything's still white. You're not sure if you're in Crawler Bug's room anymore. ]






[ Who is that? ]

» Hello?

[ You wonder if... it could be... ]

» Hey... Stop!

[ They seem to listen, so you run closer to them. Something feels...familiar. ]






















[ if you have completed two stages or more. if you were excused you can still have these ]

[ ! ACHIEVEMENT ! ] "LEVEL ONE SURVIVOR"
We want to forget, but even as we lay our heads back and force our eyes to rest, we hear the taps and scuttles of those little creatures – the flapping of moth wings as they try to reach the light.


[ ! ITEM ! ]
You are given a spider plushie. Was it his...?
