Quest:Evil Dr. Em

From Cities

Jump to: navigation, search
Prerequisite: You must already be a Shaman. Finishing the Trail of Trials (so you can force spells) is almost essential.
Reward: Level 3 Wizarding (A pair of magic underpants)
Location: 6E 210S DSSGCM on Bleak Island
The tower of Evil Dr Em is dark and forboding. A sound of whimpering comes from a cell window
half way up, and from the top you hear the sounds of squeeing.

Evil Dr Em sticks her head out of the upper window and shouts down that she'll tell you how to
become a level three wizard if you bring her 25 stories.
  1. Kill Huge Reptiles to get Plot items (plot point, plot hook, etc). Note that to kill a Huge Reptile you have to spell out one full word per hit point that it has.
  2. Kill Plot Bunnies with the Plot items to get stories. Plot bunnies are primarily found on the Bunny Islets
  3. Collect 25 stories to get a pair of magic underpants from Evil Dr. Em (10 AP). Wear the underpants to become a wizard.
You lose a Pair of Magic Underpants.
The pants sink through your other clothes and fuse permanently with your flesh. After several
minutes they have nearly disappeared except for a distinct blue tint to your nethers. That's
not going to go away, either.

Reptile Spotting

Most often seen on the mountain trail to the City of Lead and Gold and on road/city terrain - however, there have been a number there which are stuck in rock or otherwise intangible even to mages (now removed) so this incidence may be misleading.

They can appear on other planes (like R'1yeh) - Tarot will list them but then fail. Try somewhere else...

You may want to consult this list of solutes for efficient reptile slaying.

Why not have some fun while killing the Huge Reptiles.

Bunny Hunting

See various Wizards and Shamans for the location.

(06:08:34 PM) PotatoEngineer: Anyway, the "theoretical" number of plot weapons is 8 or 9.
Dragon managed it with 7.  I took 15.  YMMV.  Heck, YM Is Absolutely Guaranteed to V.
As for blue pills, it takes 25 attacks, plus (probably) 15 alignings or so, plus 25 Killing Blow spells.
If you have scrolls, that's 65 AP, if not, it's 115 AP.
(06:09:01 PM) PotatoEngineer: So about 4 blue pills with a spellbook, 3 without.
