Triton's Horn is a creature maneuver performed by triton combatants and spectral triton defenders. The horn comes in the form of a silver-spined dextral conch shell, which may result in a sheer fear-like attack similar to enormous rift crawlers, or the casting of one of three spells. Each of these effects will attack everyone and everything non-triton in the room.

Triton combatant horn blasts do not seem to be able to cast Major Elemental Wave (435).

Fear attack

Failure in defending

May result in running or remaining in the room.

A triton combatant draws forth a silver-spined dextral conch shell and brings it to her bulbous lips. A terrible, blaring force rumbles forth from the shell, rattling your frame to its very core!
Your heart leaps into your throat in reaction to the tremendous sound!
You bolt west!
[Ruined Temple, Third Floor]
Large splinters of wood cover the cracked floor originating from a pair of tables, which are now nothing more than crushed legs underneath the weight of a toppled column. An armless statue watches from the remains of a niche, its head barely peeking out of the rubble. You also see a siren.
Obvious paths: east, south
