The Beach is an event that can be reached with the Going To The Beach Buff, from the Leave The City option in City Over The Narrow Sea, from The Pirate Ship, from the Arcane Portal found in The Haunted Mansion's Cellar, or randomly by using an Inflatable Crocodile at the Subterranean Stream Inside The Cave. It cannot simply be a random event.

In the event, you have various options. The normal options are explained under Standard Options, and changes from the normal options are explained under Summer.

Standard Options[edit | edit source]

Palm Tree[edit | edit source]

You can shake the tree for a random chance to get a Coconut, hit the tree with a Hammer for a guaranteed Coconut, or hit the tree with a Holy Hammer for a guaranteed Coconut and Banana.
You can cut down the tree with an Axe to gain a Tropic Palm Staff.

The Fisherman[edit | edit source]

The player can pay 15 Rupees to obtain a Fishing Pole and learn the Fisherman feat from The Fisherman. Alternatively, the player can ask for a free tip, prompting The Fisherman to give hints towards location(s) where a specific non-generic fish/other water creature can be caught.

[Take a long walk at the beach.][edit | edit source]

You go to one of the following randomly selected subevents:

Subevents[edit | edit source]

  • Bucket- The player receives a Bucket. (It is too late to fill it with water this turn.)
  • Crabs- The player is infected with Crabs for 5 turns (non-cubus)/15 turns (-cubus) and has a chance to catch Crabs in their Pocket Ball.
  • Message In A Bottle- The player receives Broken Glass and potentially a message from a player who bought Message in a Bottle at the BG Shop within the last month is shown.
  • Necklace- The player receives an Ordinary Necklace.
  • Old Fishing Pole- The player receives a Fishing Pole. (It is too late to fish with it this turn.)

[Leave.][edit | edit source]

Nothing happens in the event.

Summer[edit | edit source]

  • The Beach has 2 additional options compared with the standard options during Summer: The Mobile Beach Shop and Water Skiing.
  • During Summer, The Beach has a 100% chance to have The Mobile Beach Shop, [Take a long walk at the beach.], and [Leave.] as options, a random chance for Water Skiing and Palm Tree, and a 0% chance for The Fisherman.
  • Water Skiing and Palm Tree cannot both appear as options at the same time.
  • Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff have a random chance of appearing at the same time as the Water Skiing option; the one that appears is based on the player's account's chosen sexual preference.

Water Skiing[edit | edit source]

  • The player can pay 5 Rupees to "a blonde guy in a speedboat" to go water skiing, or they can leave and the event ends.
  • If you pay the Rupees, you will go 4-6 spaces forward and be given an option to continue or stop; stopping at this point does not incur a penalty.
  • If continuing, you will go 6-8 spaces forward and be given an option to continue or stop; stopping at this point will have the player become Incapacitated unless Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff is on the beach, in which case there is no penalty.
  • If continuing, you will go 8-10 spaces forward, then on the next page you will be killed by a shark unless Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff is on the beach, in which case there is no penalty. Supposing the player is killed by the shark but is somehow alive, they will have an option to use a Fishing Pole (Pet Bear isn't an option) to catch the Loan Shark which killed them; this option is not given if the player is saved by Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff.
