Brinjal is a god who - like his name suggests - if seen would resemble a vegetable. He is known to look rather like an aubergine or eggplant, being purple with a green tuft on the top. He has a dark past of striking vegetarians with lightning for preying solely on his vegetable brethren, however since his early days, he became a nicer, kinder, and more gentle vegetable, even if he did become uneasy when somebody ate a salad near him. Later, after much wrestling with his dark side to stay the good person he was, Brinjal had the good and bad parts of his soul split so he could more easily control his evil side. However, the evil part of his soul escaped and later became Omnipotent Squash.

He is particularly fond of the furry friends that heroes adopt on their travels, especially firefoxes. He is willing to do all in his power to save both the pets of his hero and others alike in their times of need. If anyone wishes to send a message to him for any reason, one place to try is his talk page.


Stevaloid wearing armour he modified himself

Stevaloid is the hero whom Brinjal watches over. Unlike some heroes he was not created in the image of his god. Resembling a human, not a vegetable. (Although, like all heroes his IQ is similar to that of a potato.) He is known to be a good hero, rather than evil as he is continuously helped by his god. This is believed to be because he is not vegetarian, and therefore manages to stay on his god's good side. He is quite partial to chicken (or roasted monster - whichever is easier to get) and beer, especially beer.

He will undertake any quest as long as there is beer, and in fact has been tricked into doing the quests of several other heroes for them due to a belief they will treat him at the tavern at the end of it, only to find they have run away in the meantime, somehow he has never learned from this and is still being tricked in the same manner to date. If a hero abandons their quest, they may very well have given it to Stevaloid.

Stevaloid, despite his classicly hero-like inability to charm the trader's daughter (or anyone for that matter) has a girlfriend. Her name is Goutami7 and she is watched over by the goddess GodBlue Panda . The reason they are together is that Brinjal, tired of watching his and other heroes fail pathetically to find love, decided to help them find a more compatible and equally desperate date. As a result he created the Lonely Heroes Dating Service so that heroes would no longer find themselves lonely and looking in all the wrong places for love. Through his own service he met Blue Panda and arranged for their heroes to meet up. Since then, the goddess Blue Panda went AKF, leading to her heroine disappearing. After recovering from heartbreak, Stevaloid went on to meet Master of, the heroine of the goddess GodBellaouthena . Accounts of their adventures can be read on the forum.

A more in-depth story of Stevaloid's life can be found by reading his chronicles.


Due to forces unknown, Brinjal is believed to be responsible for the following events:

Every time the hero writes the following in their diary

The doctor said that despite his best efforts, I was permanently disfigured. I told him that this is how I normally look.

Tried to bathe %Petname%, now I need a bath to wash off all the blood!

%rg% why did you create hangovers? Anyone would think you didn't want me to drink!

I'm a {hero|heroine} and I'm OK; I sleep all night and I quest all day. I kill monsters, I stop and rest, I go to town when near! And when I've got lots of money, I waste it all on beer!

As I purchased a drink I heard profanity from the heavens. Spent %gold% showing off this trick to other heroes.

Someone saw me lying on the ground and began inscriping “RIP” on a stone. I think it means “Resurrection In Progress”

Weakened by severe injuries, I collapsed on the ground, accidentally landing on my %artifact%. On inspection I discovered there was a healing potion inside it! Immediately drank it and felt much better!

The %monster% tried to use the %hero_skill% skill, but failed, I quickly showed it how it was done.

An angel descended from the heavens and hugged %petname%. I know he's cute, but I'm the one who worships you, %rg%!

Defeated the %monster% like a boss! By which I mean I was nimble and skilled and finished with some pickpocketing. Found %gold%.

Just before I came back to life, a tall bony fellow gave me an aura of spookiness as a parting gift. Neat!

Put my left leg in and shook it all about, but still couldn't find any loot in the %monster%'s corpse.

A series of lightning bolts struck a nearby gremlin, forcing it to hide in a box to escape. Well that explains a lot.

The combination of moves I made to avoid the %monster%'s attacks turned out to be the sequence to activate my %skill%. If only I could remember what it was.

I was about to raise a glass of beer in a toast to my god{|||dess} but my god{|||dess} toasted me first.

A mad scientist tried cross-breeding a gopher with a woodchuck. The resulting creature chucked a log of gopher wood into my temple before running off.

Finally managed to %current_quest% and received a stack of freshly minted coins. I wish they made money in other flavours.

After spotting the guild doctors in the tavern I decided to buy extra healing potions so I wouldn't have to rely on them until they were sober.

Saw %pet_name% thirstily eyeing my beer. Desperately fed him my %artifact_base% and hoped it contained enough moisture to satisfy him.

Thank you for swatting the wasp that landed on my nose, My {Lord|||Lady}, but did you have to use a meteor?

My beer was mysteriously replaced with a foul-tasting health potion. I feel better and worse at the same time.

Strutted up to the quest giver and demanded an epic task worthy of my many skills. I must have exaggerated a bit too much, because now he expects me to %quest%.

I heard there is joy in giving, so I gave up. I'll let someone else %current_quest%.

When the %monster% revealed it was one win away from an “Invincible” achievement, I demonstrated my good sportsmanship by letting it kill me.

Walked into a restaurant and asked for some desert. Now I'm %gold% down, covered in sand and still hungry.

For some reason I keep finding pairs of clocks, time and time again.

Dragged the corpse of the %monster% over to a local lawman and claimed the reward of %gold% for its capture.

Saw %random_friend% looking down and gave {him||her} a hug. {He||She} gave me %artifact% as thanks for lightening {his||her} mood.

The problem with being a hero is it's pray to win.

With a yell of “Traitor!” the defeated %monster% threw a rock at %pet_name%, before collapsing. Now my beloved %pet_class% is unconscious. Whatever will I do?

A rainbow appeared in the sky and distracted the monster, allowing me to land a devastating blow.

Passed the wreckage of two carts which had crashed into a sign reading “Welcome to %current_town%. Thank you for driving carefully.”

It's time to take out the trash, which means I'll have to reschedule fighting this %monster% for another time.

I once heard of someone who took 3 days to be resurrected. Thanks for not making me wait that long, %rg%.

The {mens|ladies} toilets are out of order. Time to boldly go where no {|wo}man has gone before.

Markings on my %artifact_base% indicate that there is treasure nearby. I'll search for it if I can find someone to help me.

I'm beginning to think the odds were never in my favour. Time to flee!

A brief fanfare played as fireworks burst from my stall. Woah, I'm trader level %v% now!

A nearby angler yelled “%god_phrase%” as he reeled something in. Must be his catch phrase.

I'm not sure what I just reeled in, so I'll just put a pink bow on its head and put it with the other fenimals.

A beautiful maiden arose from the cold depths, holding aloft a strange sword. I’d better stop fishing and get away before she gets angry.

A monster stole my bait to impress the ladies. Told him I'd introduce him to some ladies if he waited in my ark.

Every time the following appears in earthly news

Using Lorem ipsum as a substitute for actual prayer...

Earning some frequent diers miles...

The hero{|ine} hands over %artifact% for free out of habit...

The hero is trying to memorize the %monster%'s attack patterns...

Every time the following appears in a dungeon log

After walking into three walls, %random_attacker% admits the only exit is to the %dir%.

The poisonous gas in this room wouldn't have had time to take effect had the heroes not spent so long arguing over who was responsible for the smell.

The heroes can go wherever they choose, provided they limit their choices to %dir%.

The heroes are annoyed by a family of moles burrowing through the roof and landing on their heads.

Two heroes holding glowing blue shovels fall through a widening crevice in the roof.

A gilded weathercock on the room's center dais is unfortunately broken.

%boss% leaps from a pile of clothes, yelling loudly. The adventurers take a few pairs of clean pants before preparing for battle.

This room contains a respawn point for monsters. The heroes take damage as they fight their way through.

Love is in the air. %attacker% inhales a floating heart and almost chokes to death.

The team inches along a narrow ledge above a spike pit. %attacker% centimeters instead and falls in.

A monster charges at %random_attacker%, exclaiming: “My name is %boss%. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”

A note explains that the real treasure was the friends they made along the way, but the heroes went for the gold and logs instead.

Every time the following appears in a duel log

%attacker% smashes a bottle to make an impromptu weapon. Both fighters are reduced to tears by the sight of spilled beer.

Misunderstanding the command from above, %attacker% wounds %defender%'s heel, instead of healing {his|her} wounds.

A carefully-timed airhorn blast drowns out a command from above.

While %defender% is still stun-locked, %attacker% attacks a second time.

%defender% be clumsy, %defender% be slow, %defender% receive an extra blow.

Inspired by the heavenly voice, %attacker% holds his weapon at an angle in front of {him|her}.

%loser% falls to the ground. %winner% performs a victory dance before collecting {his|her} reward.

A plethora of random objects fall from the sky, causing damage to both fighters. %attacker_godname% needs to stop button mashing.

With both heroes down, the judge flips a coin to decide the winner. By the time he finds where it landed, the fighters have had enough rest to continue.

Seeing {his|her} rival can't take any more, %attacker% drinks a health potion so {|s}he can claim {his|her} reward. Unfortunately for {him|her}, %defender% does the same.

%attacker_godname% activates %attacker%'s self-destruct sequence, damaging both fighters.

Played dead to avoid being killed by the %winner%. Lost the battle, %gold%, my mini-quest progress and my dignity as it marked me as its territory.

Forgetting that {his|||her} hero{|ine} can't hear {him|||her} over the deafening boss, %attacker_godname% commands “%god_phrase%”.

%attacker%'s fist glowed with divine wrath, allowing {him|her} to unleash a devastating attack on the annoying fly that had been buzzing in {his|her} ear.

%defender% claimed %attacker%'s %attacker_random_equipment% was useless. %attacker% spent {his|her} whole turn arguing that it wasn't.

Every time the following appears in a sail log

A hero shipwrecked on this island moons %attacker% as {|s}he passes by. This was not the kind of booty {|s}he was looking for.

Cryptic hieroglyphs reveal the exact location of the treasure, but %attacker% can only translate enough to get a vague hint.

%monster% surfaces, demanding to know who disturbed her beauty sleep.

A giant squid emerges and joins the fight against %defender%. %attacker_godname% is having a kraken time.

Weapon: Extra-large sword of compensation

Every time the hero finds the following artifact
