Book Simon is a boss in Slender Fortress.
From the acclaimed Source mod Cry of Fear, Book Simon is the personification the game's depressed protagonist Simon Henriksson's view on his internal evilness.
In Slender FortressEdit
Book Simon is a boss in boss pack 1 and considered a difficult boss because he is both ranged and is completely undetectable. While he doesn't spawn out of thin air, he makes no noises whatsoever and spawns with a duplicate. Once spotted, his disturbing chase theme Kill Yourself will play and he will gun down REDs with his shotgun. Weaker classes like the Spy, Scout, Sniper, and Engineer will die 3 to 4 shots regardless of distance, making him harder than most bosses to face. If being chased he seems to have a limited range before he fires if too close, in common sense do not attempt to stun Simon. Keep a lookout at when facing Simon and just keep running when he spots you. Hiding is possible but can be troublesome as he makes no noise.
Danger level is high to very high due to high damage output, cannot be stunned, a duplicate, and very silent when no one is present. The only weakness is he has a limited shooting range and is slow enough where he can be outran.
The shotgun he uses is the same shotgun that appears in the game where he originates from.
Something worth noting about this boss is that he has a 3 second delay between where he spots a player then fires. This is useful and can help you to evade him and get away.
He has a bright glow around him, so he isn't invisible in dark maps like Blood Wood.
