For a brief period during April Fool's Day 2013, a wormhole opened between the universes of Godville and Star Trek. A few tribbles slipped through, and they've been making a home in loot bags, Mystery Boxes, and the like ever since.

Tribbles are small, furry creatures that reproduce at an incredible rate; they are born pregnant. Although adorable, their ability to multiply (and the amount of food they eat) makes them indirectly very dangerous.

Tribbles will multiply to fill up 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 full loot bag for some time. Eventually (usually after a day or two?) the hero will find somewhere to sell the tribbles, but it is rarely worth the loss of inventory space in the meantime.

Tribbles will also sometimes transform items in the hero's inventory.


Acquiring

Tribbles are found in artifacts like the Box With A Question Mark, Deus Ex Machina, Mystery Boxes, etc., which generally cost 50% godpower and can make a "good or bad" thing happen to the hero.

« Suddenly box with a question mark fall apart. Three tribbles that appears to live inside immediately moved into my backpack. Oh, gods... »
« Suddenly the deus ex machina fall apart. Three tribbles that appears to live inside immediately moved into my backpack. Oh, gods... »


Multiplying

Tribbles seem to multiply between the end of selling loot and the beginning of the "staring at counter" phases.

« I looked at the sky and walked into a tree. My loot bag responded with nervous squeaks of tribbles. »
« I took a tribble out of the bag, made a good swing and threw it as far as I could. Then I heard an indignant squint in my bag and two bursting sounds. »
« Peeked into my loot bag just in time to see a furry ball making purr and divided into two pieces. »
« Found even more furry tribbles in my inventory. Where did they come from? »


Other Tribble-related Diary Entries

« My loot bag tried to crawl into bushes, but I was lucky to stop it in time. I can deal with these tribbles, but I can't deal with the loss of my loot bag! »
« Furry balls in the loot bag squeaked cheerfully and transformed an obscene rune into a guilty conscience. »
« Finally found some fool who was able to save me from all these tribbles. I even managed to get 9410 gold coins for them! »
