No one will hunt us anymore. It's time for out kind to grow and rise! Spread the word throughout the tunnels. We build, we farm, we prepare. United, we will stay strong.
— Skritt King
Skritt King is the ruler of Skrittsburgh, the skritt underground city inside Mount Gnashington in Brisban Wildlands. He strives to unite and strengthen his people despite frequent attacks from the Sinister triad. Although protected by the Royal Guard, the life expectancy of a skritt in this position is not long.
From time to time an attack on the king will occur. The event fails if the king dies, which will cause the three city gates to be () closed to outsiders until each of the gates are secured, upon the success of Skrittsburgh Center (meta event). At that point the city gates () will be reopened with a new king at the throne.

- Greetings. My subjects have chitter-chatted much about you, outsider. Consider yourself welcomed to Skrittsburgh.
Who are you?
- I am the king of Skrittsburgh Center. I rule over all skritt here. I guide this city, help make sure we build together, thrive, become more than scavengers.
How long have you been king?
- Not long. Being the king is dangerous. Too many want these city to fall, want to steal us, kill us. Enemies come to kill the king. Last king, he lasted four months. King before him, three nights.
- Who wants your city to fall?
- I wish you luck then.
More than scavengers? You're organizing the skritt into what?
- Skritt aren't much alone. One...two, they scavenge. A dozen, we can think, build, grow. A city of skritt could create new designs, not steal from others. We seek something larger. Civilization.
- How long have you been king? (Same as above)
- Interesting. Thanks.
- (If the player has a Shiny Cog in inventory and the Mini Angry Wintersday Gift unlocked)
- Rikka in Rata Sum.
Great Skritt King, I come with a Wintersday gift from
- Rikka? Rikka owes many shiny. Never will pay up. Banned from Skrittsburg. What do you have to offer me?
One shiny cog. Just for you.
- Big shiny! This is maybe the best Wintersday ever! Maybe there is good in the world if even Rikka can repay debts. I feel like a new king! Skrittsburg needs a more festive feeling...
That wouldn't be a bad idea.
- I have an idea... I help calm your angry Wintersday gift, and you help me create Wintersday cheer in Skrittsburg. Many grumpy skritt. Everybody wins! Merry Wintersday, yes yes!
That sounds good.
- Show the big-teeth angry shiny some Wintersday cheer. Make angry shiny happy. Make skritt happy! Skritt King royal decree says Wintersday parties are now allowed!
- Great! Let's do it!
- (If you have Shiny Orb in your inventory)
I've brought you a shiny.
- Thank you. This will bring inspiration to many skritt.
- You're welcome.
- During attacks on the king
- Stay together! Fight together! We can survive this threat!
- I'll help you and your people.
- There are two chests, one on either side of his throne.
