  • Lurkers are users who typically only read the topics without posting in it. They know what you do, what game you play, which users you hang around with, and more. But you don't know them. Some self-proclaimed lurkers (as of January 2015) on Board 8 include: * do_ob_tpkillr * McMoogle * Oddity * colliding * Tirofog * nomregroundhogs * trizob * VF1MS Metal Siren * CybrMonkey (10-year veteran lurker) * Dante729 * Ainoxi * LinkLegend27 * Topaz Kitsune * FL81 * KingKracko
  • lurkes are mutated baby's and will first appear in chapter 2 (intensive care) they can shoot you with there little tentecles, and if the come close they will jump on you and try kill you with there tentacles (save yourself by tapping the button on the screen ) and they can also come out of the bellies of pregnants.
  • They are only found in Barren, Their teeth are out of ground making it easy to spot them. You could walk on the corners of the teeth but don't get inside it or *bham* you are eaten.
  • The Lurkers are a race of varying creatures seen in The Precursor Legacy, Daxter, Jak II, and The Lost Frontier. They were the primary antagonizing faction in The Precursor Legacy, lead by Gol Acheron and his sister Maia Acheron, and became slaves in the Haven City-era during Jak II, before they were liberated after the death and superseding of the tyrant Baron Praxis towards the end of the second game.
  • The Lurkers, who formed in the late 1970s, are an English punk rock group from Uxbridge, West London. They are notable for being on the first-ever release by Beggars Banquet Records. The Lurkers formed late in 1976 and played their first gig at Uxbridge Technical College in the December supporting Screaming Lord Sutch to an audience of 10. The original line-up consisted of Pete Stride on guitar, Pete "Manic Esso" Haynes on drums, Howard Wall on vocals and Nigel Moore on bass. Stride was the band’s main songwriter.
  • The Lurkers are a small group of fans actively "dedicated to the ideal that nothing in this universe or any other is worth taking seriously" (as they put it on their website). As such, they love putting a comic spin on Forever Knight in fan fiction and have participated in FK Wars as a faction.
  • Lurkers are vermin that infest the sewers of Britannia and the rivers and lakes of the Underworld. The traveler who must venture into water will be particularly vulnerable to the lurker's particularly potent bite and strong grasping tentacles. Note that these lurkers have nothing in common with the Lurker of Pagan.

  • Lurkers are usually seen floating just beneath the surface of a secluded lake or subterranean pool. They rest with their eyes and a few tentacles poking just above the surface, alert for predators or prey. In most cases, lurkers will not bother anyone who does not actually enter the water, although they may track a person's position, and follow along behind him. They present a greater danger in the water, however, as they are well-adapted to water-borne combat, and their body-mass alone is enough to bar a swimmer's way in a narrow strait. As lurkers sink out of sight when killed, it is unclear whether they breath air or water, or what shape their lower body takes.
  • For the most part, these tentacled monstrosities have been more of a nuisance than a threat. Lurkers dwell in the subterranean rivers and channels of the Abyss, and have never been seen on land. They are normally seen floating just below the surface of the water, with their eyes and yellow tentacles poking out above. We know of a few cases in which a Lurker has pursued a swimmer, and once a beast became so enraged that it lurked at the water's edge and attacked those along the shore. Knight Willomar tells of encountering a more ferocious variety of Lurker in the deeper catacombs. This Deep Lurker is reportedly a veritable giant. Its great size could not be detected from the small profile it presented above the water, but the Deep Lurker should be recognizable by its distinctive green color. Willomar spent many days recovering from his battle, and was for a time wracked by a mysterious fever that poisoned his brain, but we do not know if the disease came from the monster or from some other source.

The Lurkers formed late in 1976 and played their first gig at Uxbridge Technical College in the December supporting Screaming Lord Sutch to an audience of 10. The original line-up consisted of Pete Stride on guitar, Pete "Manic Esso" Haynes on drums, Howard Wall on vocals and Nigel Moore on bass. Stride was the band’s main songwriter. The band were one of the pioneering punk outfits that played live in the first few months of the now-legendary Roxy Club in London. Nigel was swiftly replaced by Arturo Bassick. They supported The Jam in February 1977, Eater in March, and Slaughter & The Dogs in April ... (Read more at Wikipedia.)

  • Lurkers are vermin that infest the sewers of Britannia and the rivers and lakes of the Underworld. The traveler who must venture into water will be particularly vulnerable to the lurker's particularly potent bite and strong grasping tentacles. It has been surmised that lurkers do not possess the underwater breathing capabilities of fish; thus, they must surface to breathe. Indeed, many travelers have noted that lurkers may linger on the surface of the water, waiting for scraps of garbage or easy prey. Lurkers behave more like scavengers than predators, but it would be wise to avoid these creatures all together. Employ missile weapons, from a safe distance, when possible. If you encounter a lurker in open water, be prepared to defend yourself as they are quite agile. Note that these lurkers have nothing in common with the Lurker of Pagan.
  • The Lurkers are a race of varying creatures seen in The Precursor Legacy, Daxter, Jak II, and The Lost Frontier. They were the primary antagonizing faction in The Precursor Legacy, lead by Gol Acheron and his sister Maia Acheron, and became slaves in the Haven City-era during Jak II, before they were liberated after the death and superseding of the tyrant Baron Praxis towards the end of the second game. The race varies widely, ranging from insects to large beasts, fish to reptiles and amphibians, and birds to primates, all with two primary distinguishing traits: two pairs of spurs placed along the jaw line appearing to be made of something similar to cartilage, and large, yellow eyes.
  • The Lurkers are a small group of fans actively "dedicated to the ideal that nothing in this universe or any other is worth taking seriously" (as they put it on their website). As such, they love putting a comic spin on Forever Knight in fan fiction and have participated in FK Wars as a faction. Note that this differs from the usual use of the term "lurker" in fandom generally, where "lurkers" are fans who "lurk", i.e. subscribe to mailing lists, discussion groups, or on-line communities but do not actively participate. This "small-l" usage also exists within Forever Knight fandom, and should not be confused with the Lurker faction.
