For A '''tribble''' is a brief period during April Foolsmall, furry creature that reproduces at an incredible rate; it's Day 2013, a wormhole opened between the universes of Godville and Star Trekborn pregnant.

Tribbles are smallThe tribble is a special artifact that cannot be sold, furry creatures that reproduce at an incredible rate; they are born pregnantdropped, [[Crafting|crafted]] or used for any purpose. Although adorableOnce a tribble finds its way into a [[{{hero or heroine}}]]'s inventory, their ability it will hog the space for a good while. The only way to multiply (and the amount get rid of food they eat) makes them indirectly very dangerousby force - aside from getting a full inventory - involves [[death]].
Tribbles Usually they come in pairs or threes at the beginning, but overtime the {{hero or heroine}}'s loot bag will multiply to fill up with more and more slots of a loot bag, preventing a hero from carrying more valuable treasures. Because few traders want tribbles, the hero will have difficulty selling them, ending up stuck with an increasingly until {{his or her}} inventory is almost full loot bag for some time. Eventually (usually after a day or There are two?) the hero will find somewhere to sell the kinds: Regular tribbles, but it is rarely worth the loss of inventory space in the meantimeand Hungry tribbles.
Tribbles will also sometimes transform items ==History==For a brief period during April Fool's Day 2013, a wormhole opened between the Godville and Star Trek universes. A few tribbles slipped through, and they've been making a home in loot bags, [[Mystery box]]es, and the hero's inventory into more copies of themselveslike ever since.<ref>{{cite blog|70|Little Bit Of Everything}}</ref>
There exists an alternate form of On the tribbleHalloween 2019 update, named the "hungry tribble". These behave much in the same way as regular terrible and are occasionally received as a reward for heading new [[side job]] was introduced that - among others - would involve to 'breed a boss monster in a dungeontribble. Nonetheless, there exist two key differences between ' It is considered complete once another tribble gets added to the tribble and their hungry counterparts{{hero or heroine}}'s inventory.<ref>{{cite blog|129|Haunted News}}</ref>
1==Acquiring==There are a few ways of obtaining these living artifacts:*Opening a treasure box artifact (bag of trophies, orange box, etc. While ) obtained from a point of interest or by the end of fishing (2, either regular or hungry tribble resides in the heroes inventory)*Opening a black box artifact (mystery box, [[deus ex machina]], there is around etc.) (3 at a 33% chance during the defeat of time, regular only)*Defeating a [[Boss-monster ]] that the hero will remark happens to have a couple in his diary that the its inventory (hungry tribble (sonly) have devoured the monster. The hungry tribbles usually also consume the rewards *A [[Godville_Times#Free_Coupons|newspaper coupon]] could yield a pair of loot and gold. It is unknown at this point whether the tribbles also consume the experience from a defeated foewhen traded.(Can be either regular or hungry ones)
2. Once the hungry tribbles reach critical mass, which is around 75% of a heroNote that there's inventory space, they will promptly evacuate a higher chance of encountering tribbles if the heroes backpack and flee to see [[Daily Forecast]] in the world, presumably on Godville Times mention a family vacation. Upon doing so, tribbles typically leave large sums sudden increase of money, around 100 - 250 gold per tribble, presumably as overdue rentalien lifeforms.
Given this, while ordinary If at any point both regular tribbles and hungry tribbles are almost always a burden on co-exist in the {{heroor heroine}}'s inventory, then after about 15 minutes, the gold received from carrying hungry regular tribbles may right well make it a worthwhile effort. Of course, the fact that these will get "assimilated" to become hungry tribbles also consume items and gold from defeated heroes leaves the answer of this debate more open to individual decisioninstead.

Tribbles are found in artifacts like the [[Box with a question mark]], [[Deus ex machina]], [[Mystery box]], [[wonderbox]], etc.{{diary|The trader took my coupon, which generally cost 50% godpower raised his eyebrows and can make pass me a "good or bad" thing happen to the herocarrier with tribbles. }}

Because no trader - [[hero-trader]], [[hawker|roadside]], or otherwise - wants to be overburdened with tribbles in their inventories, the {{quote | Suddenly the wonderbox fell apart. Three tribbles that appeared to live inside immediately moved into my backpack.hero or heroine}}will have great difficulty selling them, ending up stuck with an increasingly full loot bag for some time.
== Multiplying ==After several fruitless hours and up to about a day - depending on the inventory's capacity, usually if a little above half of the inventory are tribbles - the {{hero or heroine}} will finally find someone who would graciously buy {{his or her}} tribbles, but it's rarely worth the loss of inventory space in the meantime. Rates go at about '''250-500 gold''' per tribble just as the {{hero or heroine}} starts the selling phase while in town.

{{quote | Found even more furry tribbles in my inventoryA '''hungry tribble''' is an alternate variant of the tribble that behaves much similarly to their regular lineage. Where did they come from?}}
However, unlike those regular ones, the hungry tribbles take on a more active role by being ferocious to both the {{hero or heroine}} and the [[monster]] {{quote | Darnhe or she}} had defeated, and reproducing at an even faster rate by devouring most slain monsters - including their gold, loot, where did all these tribbles come from and why perhaps even [[experience]] (although the latter is unconfirmed.) [[Special monsters]] are there so many also included in their path of them?}}destruction (e.g., Bricked monsters will not yield any brick, Questing monsters will have their blueprints devoured, and possibly any WANTED monster proof will not be enough to impress the town sheriff.)
== Other Tribble-related Diary Entries== The {{hero or heroine}} will occasionally remark in {{his or her}} diary that the hungry tribbles would hurt the {{hero or heroine}} slightly by nibbling {{his or her}} ear with their sharp teeth, or the fact that they'd leave nothing but a single bone for {{him or her}} in place of the monster's corpse.
{{quote diary| My loot bag tried title=Hero's Diary|The Enlightened Rhubarbarian was gnawed to crawl into bushesbones by the hungry tribbles... or more precisely, but I was lucky to stop it in timea single bone. I can deal with these tribbles, but I can't deal with the loss of my loot bag!}}
In addition, once the {{quote | Furry balls in the hero or heroine}}'s loot bag squeaked cheerfully had reached a critical mass of hungry tribbles containing ~75% of inventory space, they will evacuate all at once and transformed an obscene rune into flee to see the world - presumably on a guilty consciencefamily vacation.Upon doing so, the hungry tribbles typically leave '''large sums of gold''' - perhaps more per tribble than regular ones and most likely as overdue rent. In addition, some '''bold artifacts and even activatables''' (presumably around 5 in total) will appear in their stead as gratitude for mostly taking samples off of the {{hero or heroine}}.
Given this, while ordinary tribbles are almost always a burden on the {{quote | Finally found some fool who was able to save me hero or heroine}}, the gold received from all carrying hungry tribbles may very well make it a worthwhile venture. Of course, the fact that these hungry tribblesalso consume potential items and gold from defeated monsters may leave the answer of this debate to each their own opinion. I even managed to get 9410 gold coins for them!}}
