Crusher is a Goblin Novice of the Absolute who is located in the Goblin Camp on the stage near the Ancient Rune Circle in the east side of the camp. He is currently boasting to a small crowd about how their kind will be superior to all others now they have the power of the Absolute. He will try to humiliate most who approach him, wanting them to kiss his foot in submission.


And who're you? 'Nother pest? Everyone just barges in here, thinkin' they rule the world. Hah!

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Act One[edit | edit source]

Talking to Crusher while he is on stage results in him insulting you and demanding to kiss his foot, though he won't attempt to bully you if you are a Drow. You can handle him through a variety of ways:

  • Dark Urge. Ponder how it would taste to bite his toe clean off. (This will lead to biting off his toe, starting a fight and sparing him in humiliation.)
  • DC 15 Intimidation check. "How about you kiss my foot instead?
  • Illithid Persuasion DC 2 Wisdom check. "I'm your superior. You'd better show some respect."
  • Chose to insult him until you get the option to "Apologize and drop to your knees."
    • Kiss his foot and get it over with.
      • "It wasn't too bad. Do you use perfume?" This will anger him and start a fight.
      • "Was that enough reverence for you?" Ends the interaction peaceful, if forever shaming you.
      • Grab his foot and lick it. This will anger him and start a fight.
      • Attack the goblin. This will make the whole camp hostile.
    • Give the foot a long lick. This will anger him and start a fight.
    • DC 10 Sleight of Hand check. Kiss his foot - and try to slide the ring off his toe. Steals Crusher's Ring and rewards 15 Experience. Triggers Inspiration for the Charlatan - Anything for Profit.
  • Attack the goblin. This will make the whole camp hostile.
  • Continue to insult him, leading to a fight with him and his crowd.

If Crusher starts a fight, he will surrender when at a fourth of his Hit Points and reward 15 experience.

  • "I think my point's been made. Come on, I'll help you up."
  • "Now. You should kiss my feet."
    • Leave him groveling on the ground.
    • Laugh at his eagerness and finish him off. This will make the whole camp hostile.
  • Ignore his pleading and prepare for the finishing blow. This will make the whole camp hostile.

After completing the interaction without turning the whole camp against you, Crusher walks from his stage to the bridge and relieves himself. This makes it a perfect spot to Shove him off into the river or discretely kill him if you didn't get his ring.
