A fun link! The Kingdom of Loathing

Postby Alpaca on Wed Dec 21, 2005 9:13 pm

Does anybody here play or is anybody here aware of the Kingdom of Loathing. It's meant to be a parody of all those really bad RPGs out there.

Take a look around. I'm Alpaca.

KoL is probably the website I visit the most often. I just destroyed some lowercase letters a, b, and k and some uppercase letter Qs with my trusty duck-on-a-string, while 'n'Atilde;�berfitne the Blood-Faced Volleyball looked on.

I'm Dr Dolphin, the level 7 Hardcore Oxygenarian Iguana Driver. (My first class was Pastamancer, evidence of His Noodliness guiding me, though I had not yet been enlightened.)

There are even some pastafarians on the forums.

Sorry about the necro - I was about to make a new topic, but I figured it was better to bump this one.

Oh, good. So glad to see fellow Pastafarians there. I'm Alpaca, predictably, and in my original incarnation, which was long, long, long ago, I, too, was a Pastamancer.

I looked over that site. What's the game like? Should I join?

They have clans, do they? What system of gameplay is it?

Inside the town, there is a clan section. But you have to be level three (whatever character) to join one....

It's a mostly-text-based and grahical (stick figure) RPG, but a funny, parody version.

Clans are an in-game function.

I have never played a text-based game, what is it like?

I looks funny, but I am still undecided on whether I should join. Is the gameplay fun?

The gameplay's great.

If you're not sure whether or not you want to play, you can just create an account and try it - they're free.

I'm a clan leader myself - my (very small) clan is called Oppenheimer Boreas.

Indubitably. None of that crazy flashy stuff, but you'll get the gist of the "mood" very quickly and find out if you like it or not.

No harm in joining, either way.
