Description[edit | edit source]

Similar in design to a sea urchin but the size of a ship.

Varieties[edit | edit source]

The Lorn-Fluke comes in 2 forms: Savage and Regular. Savage Lorn-Flukes have 750 Health compared to their 600 Health uncles.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Lorn-Fluke has 2 attacks. The first is a Ram, which will do substantial damage, and the second is a ranged attack (shown as a halo of Correspondence sigils which spins and collapses into the Fluke before it spits) which adds 10 SS skullsmall.png Terror instead of SS crewsmall.png Crew damage, plus a fairly minimal 2 Hull damage. If SS shipbigsmall.png Hull integrity is below 50%, the sonic attack will increase terror and inflict SS crewsmall.png Crew damage as well as standard hull damage.

  • Ram: Range: 160, Base Damage 30, Stagger 3, Crew Damage 1:
  • Lorn Fluke Talk: Range 250, Arc 50 (Attack 360), Base Damage 2, +10 Terror

Occasionally it will dive and resurface ~10 seconds later. As with all SS fluke topgaz.png Zee beasts, a SS carcasssmall.png Strange Catch can be used to force it to resurface. It will also periodically retreat before coming back toward the ship.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Claiming the loot from a defeated Lorn-Fluke requires passing a SS pensmall.png Pages challenge. A success returns 1 x SS flukecoresmall.png Colossal Fluke-Core and 3 x SS whispered secretsmall.png Secret. Failure yields only the SS flukecoresmall.png Colossal Fluke-Core.

The Lorn-Fluke is destroyed[edit | edit source]

Its pulpy flesh shivers with the energies of its failing language. Already it is disintegrating into the waters.

Failed event
A Fluke-Core

The deliquescing body is full of incomprehensible organs that collapse at your touch. You understand nothing, and very quickly, there is little left of it. But at its centre, you find a vast lump of resin or congealed gall, the size of a barrel, flawed with darkness. In the false-star-light, it is a deep violet-purple. "Irrigo," your doctor whispers. "The colour of forgetfulness."
