Default Ancient Cyclops Death Message / Hasten text

So, I was digging through some of my old files recently and I came across this screenshot:

[You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

As luck would have it, I even have the logfile from this event:

[Tue Aug 13 05:36:48 2002] An ancient cyclops hits YOU for 68 points of damage.
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:48 2002] An ancient cyclops hits YOU for 27 points of damage.
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:50 2002] You regain your concentration and continue your casting.
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:50 2002] an ancient cyclops was hit by non-melee for 663 points of damage.
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:50 2002] Your target is immune to the stun portion of this effect.
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:53 2002] You haven't recovered yet...
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:53 2002] You haven't recovered yet...
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:54 2002] You begin casting Ice Comet.
[Tue Aug 13 05:36:59 2002] Taking a screenshot...
[Tue Aug 13 05:37:02 2002] an ancient cyclops was hit by non-melee for 1120 points of damage.
[Tue Aug 13 05:37:02 2002] An ancient cyclops's skin is rent by massive shards of deadly ice.
[Tue Aug 13 05:37:02 2002] You have slain an ancient cyclops!
[Tue Aug 13 05:37:02 2002] You gain experience!!
[Tue Aug 13 05:37:02 2002] an ancient cyclops's corpse says 'Aaarrghh!! My precious ring!!'
[Tue Aug 13 05:37:07 2002] Taking a screenshot...


Yes, it's out of era - but it got me wondering... I have in-era logs for other NPCs commenting on their death:

[[Mon Nov 12 18:33:17 2001] A Tesch Mas Gnoll hits Stormli for 52 points of damage.
[Mon Nov 12 18:33:17 2001] Jabn bashes a Tesch Mas Gnoll for 8 points of damage.
[Mon Nov 12 18:33:17 2001] a Tesch Mas Gn's corpse says 'My comrades will avenge my death.'
[Mon Nov 12 18:33:17 2001] A Tesch Mas Gn's skin freezes over.



[Mon Nov 12 18:42:30 2001] a stone skeleton was hit by non-melee for 625 points of damage.
[Mon Nov 12 18:42:30 2001] A stone skeleton combusts.
[Mon Nov 12 18:42:30 2001] You have slain a stone skeleton!
[Mon Nov 12 18:42:31 2001] a stone skelet's corpse says 'My comrades will avenge my death.'
[Mon Nov 12 18:42:31 2001] A stone skelet combusts.


I noticed the names become truncated once the mob is dead as well, but that's beside the point. Should the AC have a death message lamenting the loss of his ring? I don't see one from when I last killed him anyway:

[Fri Sep 01 22:23:37 2017] You crush an ancient cyclops for 36 points of damage.
[Fri Sep 01 22:23:37 2017] You have slain an ancient cyclops!
[Fri Sep 01 22:23:37 2017] You gain experience!!
[Fri Sep 01 22:23:38 2017] You receive 9 gold, 1 silver and 4 copper from the corpse.



On a semi-related note, Hasten's text is slightly different:

[You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

[Wed Aug 14 01:25:36 2002] Hasten Bootstrutter says 'Stopped, I have. Greet you, I do. What business do we have? Hmm? Speak up!!'

[Wed Aug 14 01:26:22 2002] Hasten Bootstrutter says 'Stopped, I have. Greet you, I do. What business do we have? Hmm? Speak up!!'
[Wed Aug 14 01:26:29 2002] Taking a screenshot...


vs P99:

[Sat Sep 02 00:08:20 2017] You say, 'Hail, Hasten Bootstrutter'
[Sat Sep 02 00:08:20 2017] Hasten Bootstrutter says, 'Stopped I have done. Greet you I will. What business do we have? Hmm? Speak up!!'


Yeah, it's from 8/2002 but I figured it was worth bringing up. The devs already have these logs from a couple years ago, I just came across supporting screenshots.

I thought I saw the AC say that about his "precious ring" here on P99. Is it possible you were too far away to hear him?

Hrm - I've killed him with a cleric, a mage, and a monk. I checked the cleric's first and then thought about the distance so then I checked the monk - that's the log I posted. Still possible I have them turned off or something and I'm barking up the wrong tree.

Hasten's text is still different though - granted it's a 2002 log so it may have been changed after "classic".

Well, I have corpses speaking both before and after that time so /shrug. I guess it's possible I turned it off for almost two years:

Fri Jan 27 21:09:23 2017] Kurrpok Splitpaw 's corpse says 'Ggggrrrrr... Bark... Bark... My eye... Bark!'

[Thu May 30 22:34:57 2019] Ghanex Drah 's corpse says 'Aroow! Though my body is destroyed my spirit will return, thus is the blessing of my immortality!'

The SRo AC has the death message, the OOT one does not. Not sure why this is.

Ah! There we go. I've never killed the SRo one on P99.
