Kingdom of Loathing / Bad moon
« on: February 25, 2012, 10:50:36 am »
Just spent what seemed like forever doing a HC cloverless run so I could unlock bad moon with the intention of doing a 100% cat run to perm unlock bad moon.

Was getting very fed up with it.

Finally ascended and... bad moon wasn't in the list available. ARGH. Not sure how that happened <_<

Gave up on HC for now and have retreated back to SC :P

...damnit I'm in the middle of a trendy run which I assume I won't get extra karma for now.

Annoying thing is I totally could have finished this run in time if I hadn't spent the last 3 days getting the gourd trophy :P

Most complicated path so far from the looks of things. I assume you can't perm the Boris skills. Iiiiiiinteresting.

I used an excel spreadsheet called Heroforge (found here) to make up my character.

Alternatively you can just find a character sheet online somewhere and fill it in yourself :P Would it be an idea to arrange a chat session before we start properly as it were just so we can all iron out character creation and backrounds etc?

I did roll up the stats for a beguiler character but I haven't actually done any character history or anything seeing as I wanted to check that

a) I could actually play as a beguiler
b) the timings worked so I could actually take part

before I actually spent the time writing something up :P

If both a and b are fine then we can get started given minimal warning as far as I'm concerned. And if A isn't fine I'll just need a little longer :P

Hmm...been too long since I've got a trophy methinks.

Think I may have to go on a binge once I finish this run :D

Congrats as well :D

If you don't have a spooky putty, buy this IotM

Particularly if you still haven't got transcendant olfaction. But either way :p

Just for claritys sake, I'm in GMT :P During the week is probably going to be awkward. I'd only be free from around 8pm-1am (though that would widen if I move out to around 5/6pm-1am)

During the weekends I'm free pretty much whenever although the issue then would be I'd probably miss it occasionally based on doing other things :P

I'd organise it however is most convenient for you guys (in so far as I'm aware I'm the only one so out of sync in terms of time zones?) and then I'll see if I can join in rather than me causing it to be awkward for everyone else :P

I voted o_______o because it reminded me of a hippo.

...I'm not even sure of my own thought process there

« on: January 11, 2012, 01:44:25 am » I didn't play KoL for a while.

It appears that because I didn't empty my stocking before it vanished I didn't get any of the crimbo items, including the untradeable familiar :(

Sad crimbo is sad :(

Only just occured to me - what sort of time are you planning on doing this? Obviously if you're going to be running the chat room games while I'm at work or asleep I can't really join in :P

Only just noticed this :D

I still have NWN1 installed and NWN2 on steam.

I have a preference for NWN1 though this may just be nostalgia because I've probably played NWN1 more than any other game ever :P including many many hours of multiplayer.

Having said that the main campaigns for NWN are kinda rubbish (I have a particular loathing for SoU but thats possibly just because I first played that as a paladin and I find them incredibly boring :P) - downloadable player made modules are where it's at. In so far as I'm aware NWN2 has far less of these but the actual main campaigns themselves are slightly less rubbish (time may have allowed fans to make some new modules by now, no idea haven't checked it out in a while).

It's not a Bioware game

As much as I loby Bioware (and I do :P) they seem to have stopped making their games multiplayer which sucks :(

As a side note I'm actually currently playing Baldurs Gate II with my brother :P Last playthrough we went all the way through BG1, 2 and started Throne of Bhall before giving up. My dwarf barbarian while natural health regen from 20 con who healed instead of getting fatigued from travelling was fun :D This time round I'm playing a ranger/cleric because yay spells :P

So in summary, if you fancy playing a multiplayer rpg I'm up for that :P

A murnin sounds incredibly fun but reduced social skills and no items make me sad :(

Beguiler is looking tempting as a class choice but I don't mind swapping to something a little more combat orientated as so far I've seen people mention rogues/wizards/clerics/druids but no fighter classes :P

If we want a more combat character I'll probably be a swashbuckler.

I'll have a think this weekend and write up something a bit more concrete.

We're sort of swerving off topic here but...

This Liberal president is actually a Socialist in disguise, you know that?

Godamn socialists, next thing you know they'll have it so that the government provides us with decent road infrastructure, schooling and emergency services!

...hmm, looks like everyone is a socialist and socialism isn't actually that bad. I'm not arguing that a 100% socialist approach to society is a sensible or realistic goal but using socialist as an insult annoys me :P

As a side note I never understood why some sections of the American public seemed so upset/terrified by the idea of nationalised healthcare, seeming to proclaim that anyone who would support such a thing was a socialist (see above for my annoyance at people using socialist as an apparent insult :P). As a UK citizen who is a) not a socialist and b) a strong supporter of the NHS (our nationalised healthcare service) that was all quite bemusing :P

Avoiding responding to the rest of the post in an attempt to move back on topic.

I got very angry at one of my friends last election because they said they weren't going to vote because they thought all the candidates were the same and were generally disallusioned with politicians. Possibly the closest I've ever come to punching someone in anger because of something they've said :P I don't care if you spoil your ballot as long as you've turned up and stated your preference. Someone told me at the time that some countries (Australia for instance) have compulsory voting with fines if you fail to vote. I would strongly support such a law being put in place worldwide.

Point being, the tenant of a democracy is, if you don't like it, vote and campaign against it. It's very concerning to see the government being quite so aggressive in their desire to stamp out protest. In the wake of the London riots I'm concerned that they'll become yet more aggressive in stamping out protests which is problematic when our voting system trends towards eliminating the voice of smaller parties and hence minimising the amount of choice that can actually be made in the ballot box. If you can only vote for party A or party B who believe X on an issue where you believe Y and you're not allowed to protest about promoting cause Y, then something has gone wrong with democracy.

A thousand times yes :P

I give you fair warning though that my maxim is that every item I pick up constitutes a new skill or ability and so I pick up anything and everything :P everyone thought I was mad for carrying around half a candle with no wick for months but it came in useful eventually :D
