I haven't logged on in like 5 weeks and just realized that my account has been booted from the flying spaghetti monster clan. =O

My friend's character also got booted from the clan. Well actually we played on the same computer for a few weeks and then she quit a while before I did. Anyhow, now I have two ex-members accounts to maintain and all three have been booted from the clan somehow.

It's odd considering I've never looted, always donated and had over 40000 karma points and such. O_o

I'll send you some grenades Sing. They'll help.

Edit: I've been hoarding them just for NS battles.

First, untinker your meat car. Not all the way, mind you, but you can take a meat engine and dope wheels with you through the Astral Gash, but not the whole meat car.
Second, burn off your adventures farming for crap you thing you'll need. Otherwise, you'd waste adventures after ascention trying to get the same stuff.
Third, if you're not going oxy, make or buy plenty of food and booze. You'll want to get out of ronin as soon as possible, and the added adventures really help.
Fourth, plan! Know what class you'll be going into, and plan to pull stuff out of Hangks accordingly. Like, for example, if you're going into a muscle class, know what kind of food and booze in your inventory gives the most muscle points and pull that out first. The same is true for weapons and armor.
That's really all I can think of for now. Message Contagious in-game if you need anything else.
Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.

I don't talk much. I don't post often. Look at my join date, number of posts and my title. These are all things to keep in mind when replying to me.

I always make sure I have a spare bartender, cook, and maid in stock. I also like to take some penultimate fantasy chests. It's cheaper to pull one of these out of storage for restorers than it is to pull individual restorers.

It never fails though, no matter how much I plan for it, there's something major I miss.

Have you noticed a reference to pastafaniarism in KoL? When you read the description of "spooky lo mein", it reads:

"This lo mein oozes eldritch freakiness from every noodle. It's hard to make noodles spooky, unless you're some kind of flying spaghetti monster, but this dish certainly manages it. You're not sure whether to eat it or run away screaming. I'd suggest eating it, though -- then at least it'll be gone."

Oh, I've been playing since january. Been ascending a few times, changing classes and the like. Just not felt like talking 'bout it.

Some advice about (masochistic) oxycore ascensions. I get this from personal experience.

Have a checklist. Marginally helpful for softcore, too, I guess. It REALLY pays off to do the stuff you gotta do as soon as you safely can, when you're maximizing the benefits. Otherwise, you can get stuck with perhaps even three days at the end of your ascension when you get to merrily hop around backfarming for stuff you didn't get earlier.

There are some other bits of advice for hardcore, too, but most of those are advanced-strategy-ish ones.

Here's one that isn't: Save up ALL your adventures leading up to your class's stat day. Even if that means doing nothing for four days. Then, on that stat day, adventure in the highest-level safe place you can. All stats, many, many stats, no resting in between, 200 adventures. If you have a useful skill like snowcone or if you're using an astral badger, this would be a great time to burn through all those orange and green things you've been saving up.

Even in general, actually, don't feel obliged or pressured to adventure every day. Stat days are special, of course, and should be used as much as possible. But otherwise, you're getting, what, 44, 48 adventures daily, probably no more, and those like to take their time stacking up, so there's no pressure.

I made a stupid mistake on my latest ascension. I went to Hagnar's and mistakenly hit "remove all" and now have an inventory that's like an encyclopedia! Dunno weather to auto-sell, put it all in the clan, or put it all in my closet.
Maybe I should just get though this ascension as fast as possible and put it back in Hagnar's.

I also forgot to blow up my bartender, cook, and wand. :x

You mean the zappy wand, right?

I might steal my friend's Lucky Tam just to zap it for him. Once I get out of this particular HC ascension, which, actually, believe it or not, should hopefully take less than a month.

this looks like fun...
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.
