Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on June 28, 2004, 09:58:12 PM
You probably already know there is a clan on KoL called "Randomvillians."
Once your character is at level 3, you should join!

All I want to know is if anyone wants a title and if they want to be promoted so they don't get karma expended when they take stuff from the stash.

I know poncho made a who's who post, but I couldn't find it mostly because I didn't really look for it.   :wink:  So can we maybe get a new post here detailing the members of the clan?  Again, too lazy to do it myself.  Bah!

OK, that's good.  Now who are they on the boards?  If they are on the boards.  Some of them are obvious, though.

And you missed moron001.  That's my brother's old account that I took over.  Thus, the "Efftard" title in the clan.

I posted this in the other thread, but just in case, both of my characters (slowdog and lord shaft) are currently seeking membership in the guild.

Now that I'm joining a guild, what's a guild?  Is there some larger guild goal I should be working for?

I would love to be Rock 'n' Roll Grocer...but I think only a properly trained pastamancer should be that.  any suggestions as to who?

Give me a day...hopefully I can come up with some titles for my peeps.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on June 30, 2004, 07:11:53 PM
I created a clan rank called Robot.  It's the same as Pirate only you can't buy clan items, which shouldn't matter because there isn't really a point to that anyway.  Also, I wanted there to be more rankings.  I'm not gonna demote anyone from pirate because it would be pointless and take forever.  Just so long as people don't purchase clan items at all because, as rva said earlier, it's a waste of meat!  Anyway, everyone new will now be ranked Robot.  Unless I think of a cooler ranking or someone just asks.  You gotta earn ninja-ness, though.  :ninja:

Also: El Dookie, being a pastamancer, has been dubbed "Rock 'n Roll Grocer" and Nook Keys is now "Booty Looter."

How do you get clan karma?  By level climbing or by contribution or what?
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on July 01, 2004, 10:11:24 PM
Clan karma seems to be mostly from donating meat to the coffer.  You donate 200 meat, you get 100 karma points.  
Also, I think you get karma from donating items to the stash.  But really, I don't know why the karma thing matters.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Juliana on July 01, 2004, 11:31:58 PM
the Karma thing is so people can't join up and then  rob us blind.  That's what it's supposed to prevent anyway.

Hey what's up with clan karma?  I can not find my standings or how much I need to achieve pirate status.  I contribute and it says I am gaining karma but I can not find where it is.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on July 07, 2004, 09:26:10 AM
You can't get promoted because of karma.  A person with "power" would have to promote you.  You wanna be a pirate?  Fine, you're now a pirate.  The only difference between robot and pirate is that when you are a pirate, you can buy clan stuff- the only rules to follow there is that you shouldn't buy the whole clan a beer or whatever.  But you can buy stuffs for the war room (except goodie bags, because then people can raid us) and you must keep the coffer above 50,000 meat.  That is all.

Although... I can create new rankings if you want a totally different ranking.  No problem.

can anyone help.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on August 05, 2004, 01:10:19 AM
To get past the batcave entrance, there is an item that can be obtained at entrance.  You may just have to adventure more to get it and realize you actually have to equip the item, not just have it in your possession.  I also just added the item to the clan stash.

The item you need for the fries can be obtained from the hermit and it's also pretty obvious once you know to go there.

btw, there was some kinda bug in the game over the weekend that made everyone rich.  Everything in the mall was selling for 99999 meat.  I mean EVERYTHING-- limes, baseballs, dry noodles, etc.

Anyways, when I saw what was happening yesterday I didn't want our clan to get stuck while everyone else was getting rich.  So I took all the dry noodles and reagents out of the clan stash and sold them.

To make up for this, some of those that profited are now selling stuff for WAY too cheap-- like 10 meat for hell ramen.  So yesterday, having large amounts of meat was worthless because of hyper inflation.  Today having large amounts of meat is equally worthless because you need so little of it to buy anything.

I now have like 3,000,000 meat to give to the clan.  I suppose the best thing to do is just toss it except for maybe like 100 k (about the legit worth of the stuff, pre-craziness).   But I can also donate the it to the clan or whatever.  If anyone is still playing and has a suggestion, let me know.

*All meat and/or items are legit (or as legit as possible nowadays).  I donated the "measly" 7 million I made during the exploit weekend back to the game.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Juliana on August 25, 2004, 01:06:26 AM
how does that get us trophies?
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on August 25, 2004, 02:34:42 PM
Trophies cost 10,000 meat, but you have to do certain tasks to qualify.  The Trophy Hut is on the right side of the tracks.  There are nine new trophies in the game, 5-6 new rum drinks, and at least 10-11 new foods (stir-frys and chow meins).  Also there are some new rare items available like Wines.  Raffle tickets for the wines are available at Uncle P's Antiques at the Wrong Side of the Tracks.

The game has been a lot of fun over the past few days with the introduction of trophies as well as new drinks and food items.  Unfortunately, you basically have to have a lot of meat on hand to play around with the new stuff.  Without a store, it is now pretty much impossible to do a lot of things in the game.

You can now put 9 White Picket Fences and Barbed-wire fences your campground . If you're playing early tomorrow, check the prices on White Picket Fences and Barbed wire in the mall.  Might be some profit there.  Sell and buy back later, or don't bother since I don't think anyone pvp's.

Or use them yourself and make your campground all purty.

Word on the street?  Where do people go to talk about what's happening in various clans anyway?  

I think it's funny that Iocaine Powder pays so much attention to PvP and all this clan intrigue amuses me.  Thus, I won't comment on this rumor one way or the other.  

But you guys are the PvP masters.  As such, I would think a quick perusal of our clan roster should be enough to tell you all you need to know.

Not that anyone cares, but I am announcing my formal retirement from KoL.

That game was becoming a horrible addiction, so I gave away about 100 million worth of stuff that took me over a year to acquire, said goodbye to my clan, and logged off for the final time today.

Got out of work today, and instead of dashing home to buy and sell stuff in the KoL mall I went and played a quick round of disc golf instead.  Tonight, I'm gonna play some guitar and watch me some Smackdown! for the first time in ages.

Now I know how that dude in the Eve story felt.  That game was pure crack, man.

Yeah, it used to be for me, too.  I play every once in awhile, but it just hasn't been all that fun.  I'm not into the market or serious clans, so that helps fight the addiction.  Poor Frenchy, though.  She's hooked.

keli retired a few days before I did.  We've been hanging out in the KoL retirement home playing shuffleboard and listening to WOXY.   You and Frenchy will have to reprazent randomville for us now.

And what in God's name would you need farmers for, Poncho?  You're rich enough.  PvP potions aren't *that* expensive.   Besides, it seems like most of the time you all were trying to *lose* anyway. :D

We just TRIED to lose yesterday... idiot jonbly... between him, FZ and his multi Lictor I don't know who I dislike more.

I pvp to win... except for the jick thing.

Plus I do a LOT of supporting others to pvp too. I supply potions to several friend's chars, the Anti-Looter Society and the Alliance to Stop Scammers.  I have enough farmers though... I was just excited about HIGH LEVEL farmers.

Farmer?!? I farm for no man.  Why back in the day, I would've burninated your ass for even suggesting that.  :)  

No, KayHanleyJennyLewis has retired with peace and dignity.  Right about now she's probably kicking back with a few icy cold beers, listening to a little Rilo Kiley, maybe old /trade war stories with keli in the WOXY Retirement Castle.  

PS.  I was kidding about the pvp thing, I have no idea what you're talking about with Jick or jonbly but it sounds like Iocaine Powder is up to some more zany pvp conquests.

Nah, I think what happens is if you make an assload of drinks, which I was doing at the time, your bartender will start to act funky.  And then a few turns later, it'll a splode and sometimes you get effed up drinks like beertinis.

I suspect he's talking about if you were an Accordion Thief or Disco Bandit (character types in which your level is determined by your Moxie, and that allow a "Moxious Maneuver").  It looks like you're not one of those classes, though, so your Moxie shouldn't matter much. You will probably need to up your stats a bit, though, and have some better equipment.

I think IP is really just focusing on our community image now.  We have a great group of folks... maybe we're all a little rabid when it comes to taking on huge, fun projects in the kingdom... but we're all pretty nice.  Despite what a couple of folks will have you believe... you really only have to fear us if you PVP and you are a jerk.

Yep.  Then you have to gain access to the Giant's Castle.  I think you have to fight in the Penultimate Fantasy Airship first.  I dunno how bad a level 10 gets their ass kicked there, though.

Sigh... if I can manage to kill the effing Sorceress today, I'm gonna ascend Ferntastica again.  Sarcastica has defected to Iocaine Powder- the clan Poncho is in.  And I ascended Sarc as a hardcore teetotaler.  Not so much fun.  Cannot wait to ascend her.  It'll probably be another stupid month, though.  Feh.

I believe that for all HC ascensions other than OXY, you get a stainless steel item.  For a hardcore Oxy asenscion you get a plexiglass item.

The item you get depends upon your class.  Unfortunately for me, I chose Accordian Thief which gets me the plexiglass pendant-- by far the absolute lamest of all the stainless steel and plexiglass items.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on July 26, 2005, 08:17:50 AM
Teetotalers get retenez l'herbe patte  (20 adv, +50 each substat, 3 fullness)
Boozetafarians get single-barrel whiskey (best booze in the land)
Oxygenerians get canned air (spleen item, 20 adv, +60-70 each substat)


Regular hardcore...

SC get stainless steel shillelagh
TT get stainless steel skullcap
PM get stainless steel solitaire
SA get stainless steel scarf
DB get stainless steel slacks
AT get stainless steel suspenders

All those pretty much make you ROCK in your next life.  You might investigate them and see which order picking them up suits you best.

Yeah, hardcore is, well, hard. I made it to level 11, and then finally gathered all the stuff I thought I'd need to beat the sorceress.  After I finally got through to her, she whipped me like a rented mule, and I had to spend two days farming for red pixels and stars again (star throwing stars really help against her).  Then she kicked my ass again.  Back to square one. I hope to get over the hump next week, too.  But it's a hell of a lot easier when you can just go to the mall and reload.  

Sarcastica's an AT, eh?  How much moxie do you have?  I didn't have too hard of a time in the Castle as a DB.  When I first started out I had to use Disco Aerobics, then a few Phonics Downs (to get Izchak's blessing), followed by a few cans of hair spray, to get my moxie high enough (above 150, and nothing in there can touch you, so then you can just flail away until they die), so that they wouldn't beat me down, but once I did that I was able to survive.  I'd think you should be able to hold your own there at level 11.  Now the HiTS is an entirely different story.   I have to buff the hell out of myself to not get walloped there.
Title: KoL: Clan

Yeah, but even as an AT, if you get ye olde moxie high enough (and it should be easy to do that as an AT), they literally can't touch you.  You'll just dodge all their attacks.  Have you seen this thread (http://forums.kingdomofloathing.com/viewtopic.php?t=39973)?  It seriously helps when trying to adventure out of your league.

Nah, I haven't seen that thread.  I buffed up and no longer get pwnd by the castle.  Now I just have to wait for the damn wheel so I can gain access to the HiTS.  Ascension shall be mine!  I'm gonna do a nice, lazy softcore run as a PM, then get started on some speed ascending.

Eventually, I want to learn how to PvP, but right now I'm focusing on honing my ascension skillz.

Nice!  I'm softcore ascending Ferntastica in a bit.  I had an assload of adventures left when I kicked the Sorceress' ass.  So I'm farming for parts I can use next time around.  Red pixel potions, food-making items.  W00t.  I think I might do the teetotaler thing again.  I kinda like the moral superiority of it.  Ha!  Or I'll do the anorexic thing.  Since Ferntastica has advanced cocktailing crafting.  Yeah.  I guess I'm farming for booze then.  :)

Yep.  That was one of the reasons I was so interested in joining Iocaine Powder.  What sucks is that I was like 3 days into the clan, ascended hardcore teetotaler and have been stuck there forever.  I spent all my advs for today last evening, but come rollover, I'll be farming for the stupid acoustic guitarrr, which is pissing me right the hell off.  15 advs in the pirate's cove yesterday and I was getting nothing but stupid sunken treasure.  Meh.

I cannot WAIT to ascend finally and actually get to open all the cool gifts people sent me when I joined, as well as the stuff they sent when I was going through the whole ordeal with my cat.  Yay box of sunshine from Poncho!  IP r0x0rz!  And pwns like a mofo!

And yay for ascending Ferntastica as a PM- just in time for mysticality day!  It's awesome!  I'm already almost at level 6!!!  And I'm working on getting her the "Jack of All Trades" trophy.

Soooooo... how many of you actively play now?

I know our pirate queen plays... both Sarcastica (IP) and Ferntastica (Randomvillians)

I play Poncho the Sane (IP)... if you see WOXY that's me too (I've got a village of drones that sometimes play and sometimes don't... all for their own specific reasons, like "speed ascender", "pvp killer", "n00b basher" and whatnot)

I know Frenchy McFrench is active... in Pier#11 and apparently KayHanleyJennyLewis (although I thought you retired???)

I don't know who Ideezy is... but they seem active.

BUT most of Randomvillians seems to be extremely low turncount, low level, sporadic players.  

Who is playing?

Iocaine Powder (clan name reference "Princess Bride" if you don't get the joke)

Consistantly known to be in the top 5 clans in the kingdom.  EXTREMELY active... and strong.  Meaning... you play or you go.  It's widely famous for pvp... but since pvp has hit the crapper since ascension rolled out... we do other things.  Right now... Hardcore Ascension is most of our thing... but Speed Ascension and the like are pretty strong.

IP invented "Wolf Packing" and "Shore Hunting" styles of pvp combat.  Wolk Packing is basically where one person would find a weak link in a high-level pvp player (like they forgot to buff up one day or had one really weak stat) and EVERYONE in the clan would hit that person.  Shore Hunting can't be done anymore... because you don't see live updates on "turncounts"... but once upon a time you could... so IP would watch and see who was at the shore (since shore hits are 3 adventures they'd watch for turncounts jumping 3 at a time) and since it would be ridiculous to shore buffed up (you'd be wasting your buffs) IP as a whole would then wolf pack that person while they were unprotected.

You can read a Iocaine Powder history on the KoL wiki-type site...

I retired for about 2 months I guess, but then I came back for ascension to try it out.

I'm pretty much like l. diddy.  I'll play for 2-3 days at a time, then not play for a bunch of days.    I chat maybe once every 2 weeks,  I haven't been to the forums in months, and I have no idea what's going on with any of the new familiars or anything else (mushroom farming?) that has happened since ascension.  I did complete an HC Oxy ascension, though.

Anyway though, everyone in the clan is very cool.  Sometimes I don't know WTF they're talking about when they reference other clans and players who aren't in IP.  This game has been around for over a year, so there's a lot of history there that I'm not aware of.

I would do that, but I sold all my cocoa stuff.  But I have 1 plastic familiar that I've equipped.  As I was whinging in /clan (IP), I cannot BELIEVE I didn't get a lead weight when I was upping the levels of my first tower familiar.  That would have made a lot of difference.  Oh well, though, I got the wolf mask while building up the my stupid goat enough to not get totally pwnd in the arena, so it's all good.  The NS will go DOWN tomorrow!  Or perhaps tonight after rollover since there is RL shindiggery afoot tomorrow evening and I probably won't have time.  Although... since I've switched departments at work, I kinda have lots of time to skive off workstuffs for KoL.

A regular meat maid gives you 4 turns per day.   A Clockwork maid gives you, um, more, but I don't know how many, because I couldn't get one damned key to drop in 2.5 months of hardcore.  For those of us in KoL's unwashed masses, the regular meat maid suffices.

Yeah, well we were talking in IP last night about whether Halloween is really worth the trouble.  Most people seemed to think it wasn't.  One of my multis is trick or treating, though.  Just cuz I loves the Halloween.

On another note, I keep getting totally pwnd by the NS.  Someone in IP was like WTF are you doing in the furry suit when you're a moxie class?  Which is a good point, but that was the only way I was even getting past her bitchiness's first form.  Meh.  Any help on kicking her ass as an AT would be much appreciated!

My main was originally an AT.  I wore Star Garb, and used either two Sneaky Pete's and Amulet, or two amulets and a Sneaky Pete's.  I had to just hammer on the Moxious Manuever since it was my first ascension and I had no combat skills.  I also recall having a metric assload of star throwing stars and frigid ninja stars, which did a lot of damage.  Torpedoes can do some damage to her first form, too.  I brought all of that stuff on the recommendation of the KoL forums.  It helped.  I also just had some luck--I had a Cocoabo equipped (it was my first ever familiar, you sent me the egg as a "welcome to the clan" present), and he either attacked or restored HP/MP to me, which was a huge help.  The next time I tried that little trick, he spent all his time looting meat, which got his ass permanently booted to the Terrarium for future battles with the NS.  

Anywho, I guess my only AT tip is to bring lots of combat items to toss at her, since the MoxMan only works about 1/2 the time if you're lucky, and will quickly drain your MP.

The NS always has the same amount of hitpoints, but her offensive and defensive skills scale with yours.  And you always lose your buffs.   That's why the combat accessory items are great.  They do the same amount of damage no matter what your skills and equipment are.

You can't outskill or out-equip the NS, but you CAN out-hp and out-MP her.  Fortunately, the best item in the game for that purpose is available to AT's-only.  I'd equip three of them, then just nail her with the ol' moxious maneuver.  It'll still be close though, it always is.  But in 20 tries, you should win.

Yeah that item helped me kick that ass for sure!  I FINALLY beat her this afternoon, in between doing all manner of crap at work.  Also, good ole Count Attackula, my cocoabo, decided to actually heal me for once- or rather a lot- I had 82 HP when I beat the NS.  Also, having chronic indigestion was a godsend.

So now I'm a no path DB packrat. It should be a damn quick run, which is good.  Yay moxie day!
I'll definitely shift back to HC soon though.

I would say definitely wear the furry suit as a PM.  I think it works well with that class.  My Saucerer got the NS in about 2 tries with that.

And this site (http://kol.thraeryn.org/wiki/Ascension) should help as well.

Or more specifically, click here (http://kol.thraeryn.org/wiki/Naughty_Sorceress_Quest#Pastamancer).

Geez, KOL wiki those guys figure out everything so fast.  And I was so pleased with myself for figuring out the accordian strap trick, too.

Anyways, I don't think you necessarily need all that stuff.  My basic thing is I figure it will generally take about 8 "good" hits to get both the NS forms.  Both times I did this, I foolishly ran out of items after two tries.  So I just equipped whatever I needed to launch about 12-14 moxious maneuvers/spells.  And figure you'll need to be able to survive about that many rounds and equip yourself accordingly if you have slots left.

When I was a 'mancer, I just used the emo squid and cone of whatever'ed her into submission.  It took close to 10 tries but after about 5 it was pretty obvious my strategy would work-- I just had to be slightly lucky.  I didn't think of the furry suit trick so I went in with the full star equipment.

When I was an AT I just used moxie man and the emo squid.  I did run out of mp right at the end, so I think I actually killed her with disease or some random offensive item from my inventory.

Basically, it raises both your HP and MP up 25 points.  Equip three of them and it's pretty damn sweet.  Only an AT can use them- and you find them in the whatever it's called- store thing that opens for AT and DB only- you know, where you can get your skills.  Right there.  I'm dumb for knowing what stuff is called today.

Post by: rva on September 16, 2005, 11:01:13 PM
Yeah, we're talking about this in the Pier 11 forum.  

So far, the consensus is that Steaming Evil is the way to go if Jick lets her have one.  There's only 13 in the game right now, so it's quite valuable and/or KOL-cool.  I don't care too much about powergaming or leetness but even I have to agree that "A Pile of Steaming Evil" is a pretty kickass thing to call your own.

If Jick actually wants to buy the thing, I think he should let Frenchy have a custom item.  I mean, it's not all that much work to draw it up and add it to the database.  In fact, it's less work for him than it was for Frenchy to make.  I think Jick wants to get the plans and sell them, too.  In which case he could probably make a lot of money off them.  Kucolon got a custom item and he's one of the bigger jackasses in the game.  

OTOH, Jick did create the NS and so it's his thing both legally and creatively.  And he did make a whole cool game for people to play for free (though he's now making money off it).  So I can't really say Jick's trying to rip Frenchy off, and I'm sure everything's going on good faith and all.  

I just don't think it's that big a deal to create something cool.  It seems a suitable reward for a big fan like Frenchy.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on September 16, 2005, 11:38:28 PM
Yeah I agree.  I mean, give her a custom item already!  It doesn't even need to DO anything.  I mean she can at least give it a spot in her display case!  I love the idea of a thimble or a sewing machine.

It'd be sweet if she could get more out of it than just an item though, but yeah the NS is legally Jick's.

DO NOT use goofballs if you don't have everything you need to get to the NS.

You can use hairspray or reagent potions to pump up to beat the topiary golems too.  Feel free to msg either me (Poncho the Sane) or my alt (Ducknutz) if you need instant help.

I beat her at level 13. The higher level you are when you fight her, the harder it is. (She matches whatever level you are.)

The hedge thingies whupped my ass too but about 40% of the time I would win the fight so it was pretty frustrating.

Oh yeah, so the typical NS beating level is 11 since that's when you first gain access to the lair.  I'm cool with kicking the shit out of her as a PM- got her on the first try last time.  It was sweet.  AT made me cry til I discovered the accordion strap thing.  An ass-kicking accordionista was me!

Anyway, it's rough because it's really class specific.  You just have to figure out what is working for your character and what isn't.  Then kick some NS ass!  After awhile, it isn't so hard.  It gets kinda fun trying to improve your skills through each ascension.

I was a level 13 (I got there on accident, I swear!!)
Equipped:
-Wand
-Gnaguana chaps
-Fedora
-3 bejewelled accordian straps
-25 lb Coacabo

I used about 14 plot holes, lots of elixer, and 10 or so stink bombs.

I got my ass soundly whipped with the furry suit route (trying combinations of straps, talons, and acid squirting flowers).

I moxiously manauvered against the first form pretty successfully.  
The second form I just threw bombs and torpedos and plot holes against, using the elixer when I could.  My Coacabo helped most of the time.  I heart my little Kikoman.

This whole thing cost me a BUNDLE.

Any tips for ascension?
I don't know what route or whatever I'm going to go yet.  I need to research it I guess.

I have a stat scroll I never used.  can I use that after I ascend?

Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: clemsonfan on October 11, 2005, 05:00:23 PM
For the first 600 turns you are in ronin. Ronin essentially means you start at level 1 with no skills, no meat, and no items. You are a newbie again. You cannot buy stuff or get gifts from people when you are in ronin.

If you go hardcore, you will be in ronin for the entire time.

Your stuff will be in storage (including meat) while you are in ronin.

You might as well use up all your adventures before ascending because your adventures will be reset to 80 after ascension.

I mostly just want to build my bank back up I guess.  It cost me lots of meat, at something like 60 elixers and 150-200 stink bombs, not to mention all the time I spent in the cake shaped arena bulking up familiars I didn't even have to fight NS' familiars.

Some people bought them from his store.  Yeah, those are all gone now.  Check out the prices in the mall and openly weep.  They were 4.9 mil yesterday morning, yesterday evening they were 9 mil.  Dunno what they are now, but 0_0 !!!

Man, I miss the mall.  I was totally awesome at that aspect of the game.  At the height of my KOL addiction, I was spending 3-4 hours a day messing around in the mall.

I used to regularly turn over 1000 cherries, limes and jumbo olives each day.  Buy 'em up in the morning, sell them right before rollover at a profit of 200 each.  Then every night I'd sell off about 2 or 300 of them in 11 meat sales, eating up most of my profits just to drive the price down so I could do it all over again the next day.  

Now I don't even have 200k meat to my name.

I bought an emo roe for 8 million once and sold it half an hour later for 60 million.  When Mardi Gras rolled out, I made about 40 million selling beads before the market crashed.  Same thing with the Oyster Eggs.  I got in kinda late but still made about 10 million on those.  

Just make sure you login right at rollover anytime there's a real-life holiday that might be celebrated in KOL as well.  It's risky, but lucrative.

There's nothing like using up all of your day's adventures attempting to have some red pixel potions made so you can fight your shadow, putting you that much closer to ascending (hardcore!) only to find that you took care of that awhile ago, and a quick check of your inventory would've told you that.  I now have 9 red pixel potions, and I only need 4.  Shit.

Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on October 14, 2005, 08:54:25 AM
10 minutes after rollover were kinda good, then it got that typically evil post-rollover lag.

I listened to Jick on Radio KoL last night, and he was talking about the new servers.  Something was mentioned about November.  Doesn't that translate into like February or March?  Not that it would be his fault or whatever.  I understand these things take time or something?

It'll be nice to have 5 front-end servers.  3 was working well for awhile there.  But once ascension occurred, that's when it started getting really bad.

Jick said there were over 1000 new characters created yesterday alone.  Not atypical for a stat day/ holiday.  The problem with lag is all the people playing.  And I'm assuming folks with multis are a big part of the problem.  I mean, I was running Fern on Safari, Sars on Firefox, and mafia-ing Moron's turns all at once.

Anyway, that Emo Roe is fricking awesome!

Some people's chat text have gone gray.

Coughing has become more frequent in a lot of folks, and then:
Gray text.  And then lighter gray text is the third stage.

Apparently Rose Colored Glasses make your text appear black, or so I heard someone say today.

Sars and Fern both have the coughing.  Fern's was increasing, Sars's hasn't so far.  And both still have black text.

A few clarifications.

Your money should be fine.  There are a few glitches with trade and store stuff, but more or less you *should* be okay.

New accounts will still be there.

Inventory: it depends on what was in Hangk's on Sept 6th.  See below quote from Jick.

Quote
Basically, your items in ascension storage will revert back to what they were 6 weeks ago. Which is gonna do, for a lot of people, one of two things: If somebody had stuff there yesterday that wasn't there six weeks ago, it'll be gone. And if somebody had stuff in there six weeks ago that is now in their inventory, it'll basically be duped.

Yep, my spooky hockey masks and lots and lots of other stuff (including meat) is gone for me and another one of my characters.

I'm in hardcore with lots of stuff in storage. I ascended after Sept. 6th so I didn't have anything in storage then.

Yeah I don't envy those mods at all!

I like that they have a ring of flame and all, but my god, never ever go there.  People are SUCH jackholes.

Also, I wouldn't be too bummed about folks quitting- it might ease up on the lag.  But I imagine lag will be absolutely unbearable once the game is back on.  I wonder if they can stagger it.  Like maybe let players 1- 100,000 back on first and then 200,000 - 300,000 on next, etc.  Probably not, but it's a thought.

Rosealia is screwed.  I've got money, but no stuff.
Nora Charles & Killa Bell are unaffected, as they haven't ascended yet.

I don't understand how you're supposed to know if you're missing money from your store.  Is that something that most other people keep track of or something?

Post by: scurvygirl on October 28, 2005, 08:55:51 AM
Fern and moron = unaffected.

SARS = fucked.

Unless, and I thought they were/are supposed to do this, they use my inventory from the 6th and give me that.  Since I ascended like a day or two later, all my stuff that was in Hagnk's WAS that inventory.  Over a year of packrattery down the drain.  Although I seem to remember giving my rarer stuff to Fern a few months before I even joined IP.

I don't know what the wiki says... but I know that I rule the NS as a TT by:

wolf mask
furry pants
wand
(elite shirt if you have that skill)
flaming talon
flaming talon
acid-squirting flower

use an attack fam will a solid number of kills (pickle would be ideal, but mecha, lime, cocoboa, feather boa, grapefruit all work somewhat)

HEADBUTT is your friend.

Buy 50 Doc Elixirs and headbutt the crap outta the whore!  

A 30lb pickle (sympathy + skewered blade) combined with the flower... will take about 10-15 of her hit points per headbutt (I'm averaging b/c sometimes it's nothing and sometimes it's 30).

A random photoproton torpedo or cloaca/dyspepsi grenade will crush her.

Don't waste your money on the torpedoes or stars.  In general, the best move is get your MP and HP as high as possible with accessories/weapons, then use your second-best skill over and over.

It still might take you 7-8 tries to win, but it's better than losing all your meat and less work than having to farm between battles.

I'd totally rather win on the first try... but I guess it depends on your financial situation.

Hey did you guys noticed the changes made to PvP?

If you're in hardcore, especially, I recommend breaking your stone.  It's SO fun!

I jumped up and down in my seat for 3 whole minutes when I read that PvP wouldn't expend any adventures.  And that's not just because that's how long it took to log in due to the wicked bad lag.

Rosealia is in hardcore and hating it with a passion.  Every day I ponder if I should take her out or not.  Of course, with ALL of her stuff still gone, there isn't a lot of incentive, other than being able to buy things.

Nora Charles has beaten the NS and is having fun with her new store.  Mostly she's adventuring for stuff to sell.  

Killa Belle is going to fight the NS today.  She's nervous.  Hopefully this trick of multiple cookbooks and/or toothpicks works.  It's strange having a character with such a low HP.

Post by: scurvygirl on November 10, 2005, 01:26:25 PM
Yeah, break Rosealia's stone and play around with that for a bit.  Picking flowers is fun and you can get a trophy for discarding one.  And from lurking /pvp, there are some big, exciting changes in the works for PvP.  Yay!

:(  Pre-Petrified Time I had been giving a ranking and a title of Lord of the Wookies in the clan.  I just noticed that I was reverted back to pre-ranking status.  Do I get to be part of the cool club again?

Also, I asked them for my exactly three shaped box (and forgot to ask for the leaf) but haven't recieved any word on it.  What was it? What was it for?  I've often wondered...

I don't remember what was in the box.  I can send you a new leaf, just give me a day or so.

And I put your status back. I couldn't remember what rank I had given you, so I went with ninja.  I had TOTALLY forgotten giving you that title!  Heehee.

Actually, I could change that.  Honestly, I need to fix the stupid ranking system there... but then everyone is pretty trustworthy, only taking as much as they give.

Oh.  Here's a message for anyone I didn't already tell.  DO NOT PUT MEAT IN THE COFFER.  If you want to donate meat, convert it to DENSE MEAT STACKS and put it in the stash.  The meat in the coffer is really only important in CvC... and Clan versus Clan is pretty much dead.

Titty McBooberson threw a bunch of whiskey sours in the stash... I took half of them out and made Fuzzbumps and threw those in the stash.  Yay, me.  If people want to toss some coconut shells my way, I can do the rest as well.  In fact, I'm gonna go ahead and take out all the whiskey sours so I can make fuzzbumps when I get enough coconut shells.

Um... something else... oh yeah, I threw some Talismen O' Nam in the stash- it's an accessory that'll give you access to the Palindome in the plains.  Grab one while they're hot.

Oh- and if you're in the market for some more familiars, go get yourself a re-winged stab bat.  I just threw 6 of them in the stash.

Do you have to get a star weapon and star buckler to get past the perplexing door? The 1st time I beat the NS I did this but now that I'm in hardcore I want to do the bare minimum.

Thanks.  I picked one up and have been using him.  Except that he doesn't do anything at all.  Is this normal?  Am I doing something wrong?  All he ever does is attempt to stab me or my enemy and he always misses.  I figure I need something else to equip with him, but haven't a clue what that might be.

Any tips for fighting the NS in Hardcore? I'm a pastamancer, so that means no furry suit for me. I've tried fighting her 4 times today and I just can't get past her 2nd form.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on November 21, 2005, 12:35:44 PM
Ah... acutally you CAN do the furry suit.  You just need 2 wolf masks.  You use the wand you get from the dungeons of doom to zap a wolf mask into furry pants, and voila!  Instant complete delusion!


Oh, also, I restructured the rankings in the clan.  If I messed you up in any way, let me know.  I'm just trying to get it more organized since there's about 40 people in there now... even though a lot of them are actually multis.  Hell, my brother has 4 characters in there right now.  I ranked them all as Robot so I could keep them straight.

Pretty much they're not that different.  Some people have different Karma allotments.  You know, so people won't do things like yank 20 Fuzzbumps from the clan stash.   ;)


And yeah, I've been crazy farming for those grenades.  Yay KoL mafia! I'll miss them especially with Sarcastica, as they have been super helpful in this HC run when I accidentally get in over my head.

There were SEVENTY-FIVE in there.  I figured no one would miss them b/c of the severe quantity.  If there were 5, I might have taken one, but probably not b/c I didn't even know what they were.

And Dan, nah, that's fine, go ahead and keep the drinks. It's just you should be putting in as much as you're taking out, and if you check mall prices, you'll find that Fuzzbumps aren't all that cheap.  Also, I blew up a couple of bartenders to make all those.  Soooooo... if you maybe want to make a bartender and send it my way... actually, all I really need are some beer goggles.  I can manage the rest.

Well the stash is just kind of empty in general.  We had a lot of new players sign up recently, and I tried to get rid of a lot of the clutter in there, you know, taking out stuff like loose teeth and skeleton bones and making a bunch of skeleton keys and tossing them in there. Kid's stuff, really. But there's still a lot of crap to sort through, and I can't really remember what's worth anything.  And I mean, it's not like we have any rares or anything.

Yay for stuffed KoL stuff!  Is that your new NS?  Awesome.  She's not a transforming one, is she?  And yay for the ADD... I love the shiny wings!

Oh, and word to the store ad thing.  Just to see what would happen, I threw some random amount of meat in mine.  No more than 4K meat, too, it was just whatever rounded out the last numbers to zero.  It shot me up to 700-someting in advertising.  So yeah, that pretty much confirmed what I was wondering, that no one uses it.

There's also the fairly cheap option of hairspray.  It boosts moxie as well.  It's only 30 or so meat for 3 or so adventures, and it's available in the demon market in town.

Also, the Otori free buffbots have changed.  From now on, only Testudinata gives free ones.

For those of you not in the know, send Testudinata each "price" seperately once per day (Ex: send 1 meat, then in a second message, send 2, and so on).

FREE BUFFS
(150 turns of each per KoL day)
- - - - -
1 Meat: Moxious Madrigal
2 Meat: Jalapeno Saucesphere
3 Meat: Elemental Saucesphere
4 Meat: Jabanero Saucesphere

I don't have a trained disco bandit right now who isn't in ronin or hardcore... so you're out of luck on the fuzzbumps, etc.

BUT BUT BUT I put all the makings AND 25 bartenders for fuzzbumps and slap n' tickles

Roll in the Hay (put in 100 complete)
Fuzzbump (put in 300 whiskey sours/300 coconut shells)
Slap N' Tickle (put in 1000 salty dogs/1000 magical ice cubes)

SOOOOOO if you have a trained disco bandit in the clan... they can make them up just fine.

I put in a couple thousand food items too.  Some you can sell to collectors (ghoul stuff), some you can eat, some you can autosell.  I put in a 1000 hot wings, 100 hell ramen, 1000 jugs of magicalness, some white chocolate pizzas (for the trophy) and a TON of replenishers (tiny houses and scrolls of drastic healing).

ENJOY!!!

Thanks a lot. You know, It's a lot of fun sending/receiving stuff - I'm still not sure what's great or shite as far as the game goes, but what I do know is that Lauren and Juliana are extremely generous and helpful. Plus, it's a very funny game. The radio thing I don't like so much. Tuned in yesterday for about 7 minutes - the guy on there was a wanker, and the music was simply horrific.

Well... Lauren/I play in one of the premier clans in the game (Iocaine Powder)... so we're like pr0n junkies in Times Square circa 1986... all smacked up and ready to go.

Frenchy is a huge part of another fairly well known clan... Pier#11.

So I have a Cottage in my campground.  With 4 white fences, it was giving me 28-29 HP and 34 MP everytime I rested.  Today it's suddenly giving me 58-60 HP....  Does anyone know why?
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Juliana on November 29, 2005, 12:51:36 PM
It's a muscle stat day.  You'll get more HP today from stuff like that.
You'll also get more muscle stat points from muscley foods and drinks, like papaya slings, bloody marys, boris' key lime pies, and the like.

Also use some extra-strength strongness elixers if you have them.

And if you're a muscle class, have a gourd potion if you can.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on November 29, 2005, 03:35:53 PM
Here's a good guide... if you want:    (this assumes you have the liver of steel and can drink to 19 drunk before falling down)

Max moxie
Drink 3 fine wines and 4 rockin' wagons (or perpendicular hulas)
Eat 3 rat appendix chow meins (or 15 papaya tacos if you are poor)

Max muscle
Drink 1 imp ale and 6 papaya slings
Eat 3 knob sausage chow meins (or 15 papaya tacos if you are poor)

Max myst
Drink 1 shot of grapefruit schnapps and 6 vodka & cranberries
Eat 3 bat wing chow meins (or 5 delicious noodles if you are poor)

Max adventures
Drink 3 tps drinks and 1 fine wine
Eat 1 tofu chow mein and 3 pr0n chow meins (or 1 delicious spicy noodles and 2 fettucini inconnu if you have less meat... poor? eat 5 spicy noodles)




You should eat the food/booze for the day it is.  If it's Muscle day.. eat/drink muscle... it's myst? myst... it's moxie? moxie.

If it's not a stat day... eat your class.  Myst classes eat myst, etc.

How do you know the days?  Go into chat and type:

/msg chatbot what day is it?

she'll tell you.

Please tell her that you are Sarc and I's friends.  She's expecting you and will let you see a little more info and secrets than the average joe gets to see.  Research we've done as a clan and testing on different techniques.

Please note that jumping in and talking your little heart out is encouraged.  Questions, large or small, are also encouraged.  Please make yourself at home.  I've never seen a question in game that someone in our clan hasn't researched... so try it out.

Yeah, you ascended her HC, so any SC skills you kept, you don't get to use.  Only skills kept as a hardcorer can be used in future HC ascensions.  I think if you look at your character page it'll tell you which skills you've gotten SC permanently and HC permanently.

And Julie, lemme look into the Feast of Boris stuff and see what's up.

Oh, and re: crimbo day items, such as aspirin from today's advent calendar... a little bird told me that they are being watched for multi-abuse... so be careful about sending them between characters.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on December 13, 2005, 02:57:10 PM
Okay, so apparently the new Feast of Boris content is all around the kingdom.  You can get all sorts of different food items by adventuring around... and apparently you can encounter the new monsters in any area... it isn't like you only find certain ones on the icy peak, for instance.  Just adventure like normal and you'll run into stuff.

Sadly, SARS can't participate in Feast of Boris not just from being HC Oxy, but because I'm saving her adventures for muscle day, which isn't til Thursday.  Gaaah!  If not for PvP and Adventing, there'd almost be no point in me logging her in at all til then.

Oh- that's easy.  You got a crimbo gift dropped into your equipment on the 25th- it woulda been a tree skirt, a can of snow, or um.... oh a colorful light "necklace."  I'm gonna throw all three of those in the randomvillians stash so people can take 'em out, get the tatt, and then put 'em back.  But I'ma hafta do it later today since I'm actually heading out the door right now.

Well, Crimbo town is gone, so no new toys. :(

However, for those of you who weren't around the past 10 days,

I put 20 yo-yos in the stash to help with the spoiler listed at the top of the page. They are still zappable! I also have some teddy bears, and I'd rather gift them to you all than sell them. Just let me know if you'd like one.

I'm finally on the NS Quest (for the first time). I'm still trying to collect enough stars and lines to make the appropriate items, so I probably won't actually encounter the NS for several days.

Well Fernie has about a billion stars, lines, and starcharts, so unless you wanna collect them on your own, I can send you what you need.

Also, I have a TON of yo-yo's that I am slowly converting into owls.

I'll take a teddy if you don't mind. I was out of town for most of the Crimbo town days, so I didn't get a teddy. Clemsonfan is in hardcore but my two othewr characters aren't (agprice and rainey).

Once you hit level 4, you get access to the Battlefield again.  But best hurry- it's only there for levels 4 and 5, which is complete BS in my opinion, because most of the time, you're gonna get your ass beat unless you have high enough moxie (around 35-40) to keep from getting your ass handed to you.

Fernie is prime to ascend, BUT I just ascended moron001 who had never ascended before so now I need to keep Fernie free in case I need to make stuff for the clan.  Or I might give her another softcore ascension just for the hell of it, although I really want to do more hardcore stuff as I've really grown to enjoy it.

Sars is sad because she is having issues with the RNG being a big meanie and so she won't be able to ascend for probably another week because of it.  Wah.  Oh well, I will have the plexiglass pike pike and LTS when I do ascend her AND she will be going Hardcore Seal Clubber again to get Eye of the Stoat so monsters beware!!!  It's gonna be awesome and well worth the wait.

I've finally got Rosealia back on track.  She hasn't been paying much attention to the hardcore path with the last month's activities.  Finally got enough stars to get the last key for the perplexing door.  next up, the Topiary Golems.  
Rosealia is afraid of the sorceress, as she's much too high of a stupid pastamancer, but hopefully she'll be okay.  She is also mad that she hasn't gotten the furry suit yet. Stupid Hardcore.

I might ascend Killa Belle finally, but I haven't decided for sure yet.  It will be fun to do a new class, but we'll see.

Don't worry about being too high leveled Pastamancer. Moron was a level 20 and I beat her on the first try.  Don't forget you can zap the wolf mask into furry pants.  But you probably already knew that.

Yep.  But the stupid hippie moved the Valentines from the Demon Market to the Gift Shop.

We were even sending Valentines to people we pwnd at PvP today.  Cept for me because I'm meat poor.  I only hit two people anyway.  Then I got boosted by being mega buffed and getting attacked by unsuspecting folks.  That's the only reason I'm on the board now.

Man this was fun.  Soon enough I can ascend again and powerlevel like a mofo.

Well that filthy hippie hates PvP so he's not doing anything to change it.  But Marshall and several others are working to make it better.

As for the two updates thing, people have 6 weeks to get their characters in fighting position- it's definitely possible.  Espcially if folks work together to take us down, and if they do that, more power to them!

I just did my part. ;)  I think my clanmate wussed out on me though.  Probably a smart move.  With the word out now, people are getting picked off left and right as they claw for the top.

As for the challenge, beating any given person isn't hard.  It's gaining and holding rank that's hard.  That goes for IP as well.  My guess is you'll retain maybe 60% of the leaderboard.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on January 04, 2006, 02:08:10 AM
It's gonna be a lot of fun!

Most of IP just ascended so that leaves the leaderboard free of us for awhile.  Me and a few others were not at the point where we could ascend so it'll be a few days before all the participating members have ascended.  Sadly, I think I'm the major straggler here.  Fucking RNG, man.  If I get the sodding cow, I will SCREAM.

For a pastamancer... I'd use

Furry Suit
Ghost Pickle
3 enchanted toothpicks (much higher than 2 cookbooks)
Wand
Star Shirt
Rag doll

The furry suit drops your moxie to about as low as you can get it w/o buffs.
The gpoas will attack and drop the caustic acid
The 3 toothpicks will drastically improve your spells
The star shirt will boost your MP
The rag doll will boost your muscle for the times you hit.

I don't know what Sauceror skills you have (if any) but "Stream of Sauce" works really good... as does "Cone of Whatever"


If you don't have anything to use your MP for on her.... I'd drop this whole scheme and go back to the standard KILL tactic...

Furry Suit
2 Flaming Talons
Acid-squirting flower
Gpoas
Knob Goblin Elite Shirt
Wand
Rag doll


ETA:
photoprotontorpedos, plot holes and dyspepsi/cloaca grenades are you BEST FRIENDS here.

Of course not.  Why would I bump you?  You know the drill better than anyone.  

Actually, it doesn't really matter.  No offense, but Sarcastica was too weak on the moxie to be that high.  If I'd bumped her, it just would have been more rank for someone else to take, or another battle for someone else in IP to win.

I think you all have already demonstrated you can take anyone you want and put them wherever you want on the leaderboards.  The only thing that can screw it up is too much unpredictable movement in any direction.

Re: Sneaky Pete's Day

There's a bunch of chatter about it somewhere in this thread.

But the short version is this- there's a special adventure whilst drunk off your ass- drunken stupor!  Green beers (ice-cold beer + ten leaf clover) will let you drink up to 30 fullness, I believe.  I'ma throw a bunch of them in the clan stash.  My brother (Raefyn) probably already did that as he's big on KoL holidays.  ETA: You can only make the beer ON Sneaky Pete's Day, but it's good to farm for clovers (IE, 31337 scrolls = worthless items) beforehand to make lots of 'em.

So you equip one of the things that drops- can opener, I think.  You get a certain adventure helping sorority girls (I think).  Then you wake up the next morning with a traffic cone in your inventory.  Nice hat.  Anyway, I think that's how it goes.  I didn't bother looking it up- anyone feel free to correct me.

It's called "The Bastard Sons of The Gypsy Bastard," starring moron001 and doughrafe.  Send your multis on over.  We think it'll be lots of laughs!

Rosealia accidentally hardcore ascended with the wrong familiar.  Stupid Fairy Gravy.   I want my Cocabo!  I don't even know how high poor little Kikoman's kill count was, but this would have been my 3rd run with him.  now he's at 0.  Dammit.

I'm sorry J... that blows.  

Since you have to start over, though... I'd pick a better fam to keep ascending with.  If I can help you pick one, let me know.

120+ ascensions and counting.  I've been around the block a few times.

I just really dig the Cocobo.  Gives you goodly amounts of meat, helps with HP & MP when you're newly starting out.  

What do you recommend?  I know the Pickle is good for the battle royale, and other than Rosealia's first attempt (back when all my characters were super poor), that's all I've used against the NS.

Post by: Action Jim on January 27, 2006, 04:20:56 PM
People seem to be big fans of volleyballs and sombreros, since they help you level faster.  I've brought my volleyball the last few times, although I am a Cocoaboa fan, for the reasons you stated (plus, they sometimes attack).
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: clemsonfan on January 27, 2006, 04:27:37 PM
Yeah, I usually bring my volleyball.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on January 27, 2006, 07:30:51 PM
I always ascend with my Emo squid, just because I like it.  I don't do anything with it at all so it hardly has any kills.  It just sits there at level 20.

The familiar I actually end up using is the Cheshire Bitten, so I guess that's a recommendation for the volleyball.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on January 28, 2006, 02:54:19 PM
Yeah I ascend Sars with the Bitten.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on January 30, 2006, 08:45:22 AM
The Bitten or it's replacement the Cymbal Monkey are excellent.  They are my first choice.

For the folks that signed up on the IP board:
http://www.iocainepowder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1747

that's a great thread about the sombrero.


It boils down to this:

Bitten or Monkey or even the Blood-Faced Volleyball are the best for the lower levels.  You should really ascend with them.  The bitten/cymbal monkey is equal to the volleyball EXCEPT that they give you meat drops also.

When you reach the castle, the sombrero gives you more stats than those 3.  

In the castle you should ideally try to wear the sombrero with tiny maracas (or wax lips if you're lucky enough to have them and are going softcore instead of HC) for optimum stats.

Hands down, I'm ascending with the volleyball or bitten/cym monkey every time.  Hands down.

Stats are way more important than meat or replenishing.  I can make meat and buy replenishers.  I use my coco sometimes if I"m just getting beat up to pieces... but if I get my big stats... I don't need to.

wow.

Can you not "use" the chest of the bonerdragon then?  That's going to hurt.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on February 10, 2006, 04:04:31 PM
Yeah you have to leave the chest alone.  It's not so bad when you're in softcore, though.  Not being able to use in it HC, now that would hurt, especially in Oxy.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: IPrayForTang on February 10, 2006, 04:31:38 PM
I dunno...depending on where you'd be doing your stat-boost adventuring at that point, not using the chest should only add a day or two to a HC or HOxy run.  I don't really mess with the BD until my moxie's up to 95 or so, and at that point I'd be hitting the valley for stats.  With an average substat gain of 18/adventure, it would only take 25 adventures with the substats being evenly distributed (based on the 18 average and the 450 total substat gain from the chest...stat days should come close to still being even on that).  Assume that an additional 15 adventures would fill up the 1 or 2 lacking substats.  1 day of adventuring will make up for it.  If you have horribly shitty luck, 40 additional adventures will more than do the trick, so I'd say that at most, showing restraint would add 2 days to your run..

I don't know, Rosealia is HC AT right now, and in those last 2 days helped her a lot.  Meat Globe, Leaflet, Stat Script and Chest.  I think I went  up 2 or 3 levels grand total.  The meat doesn't hurt either.  I guess if I weren't in AT and wasn't so worried about how ATs kind of suck at the NS, it would be a different story though.  I have to buy stinkbombs and elixers like crazy before I can attempt her.

Yeah, Jick said it on his radio show last night.  The NS battle will get bumped back to 15 eventually. And apparently, it will get bumped to level 13 then to level 15, I guess to get people used to the idea of it getting bumped back, and in order for more content to be rolled out to fill those other levels.  From what I understand, anyway.

Just as an added bonus to our Iocaine Powder contest....

Any randomvillian (other than Sars of course) that can beat me in pvp tomorrow (Feb 14th) will get a very nice present sent their way.

Offer good only on the 14th and you can't hit me more than 5 times per character... but you can hit me those 5 times from 50 different chars if you want.

You win and you'll be pleased as soon as I ascend (probably the 15th or 16th????)

You guys should keep an eye on the IP site... we're testing a bunch of new combinations for the NS.

I don't think anything is posted out in public yet... but it will be soon.

It messed with us all, but ultimately having a L15 NS and not having so many cheats SHOULD even up the playing field... who really likes seeing Yoda the Caveman brag on and on and on about "great I be are you see the best am I" when he's got all the advantages in the world?

I could go on and on... but I shouldn't.

Stay tuned and we'll be glad to help you with a great solution.  Just keep checking the site.

Post by: IPrayForTang on February 13, 2006, 04:24:01 PM
Is the NS already huge?  I burned nearly 70 adventures on her today and even when I made it through to the 2nd form, I didn't get a single hit in.  I mean, I generally don't like TT runs once I get to the end, but this is ridiculous.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on February 13, 2006, 05:03:52 PM
That's crazy.  Does she not get weaker with every loss anymore?

I beat the NS by losing a bunch of times on purpose.  And it's never taken more than 10-15 times.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: IPrayForTang on February 13, 2006, 05:37:44 PM
It's also occurred to me since I posted this that I haven't heard anything about making it so she doesn't scale anymore.  Looks like the RNG had a hard-on for making me miserable today.

Killa Belle (level 11 seal clubber) just beat the NS on the second try (first try was a test, since RVA said that she [used to] was weaker with every attempt.

Equipment:
Fury Suit
Flaming Talons
Ring of Increase Damage
Spooky Glove
Acid Squirting Flower
Level 20 pickle.
6 homeopathic elixers.
That is all.  

It was pretty freaking sweet.  Every hit had +15 of elemental damage along with it.  

This was my first Seal Clubber, so I'm pretty excited.

Are seal clubbers always this easy?

We are? I think I missed that memo.

I swear she gets easier with each battle.  To answer your question, Juliana, I had a hell of a time beating her with my Seal Clubber.  But then, I was a level 16 at the time I kicked that ass, and she did get a little easier each time.  I think it took me about 10 tries to kill her.  What was funny was I kicked her ass with 2 flaming talons.  A few hours later, flaming talons were offhand items rather than accessories.  I really lucked out.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on February 13, 2006, 07:46:22 PM
I'm almost positive she does as well, or at least used to.  Although admittedly I haven't wasted a lot of time or equipment testing it out.

I just go in and lose.  Then I use the lamest spell or healing item possible and fight her all beaten up.  I pretty much lose in one hit.  After a bunch of losses in a row, you realize you're doing more damage and taking less and then you juice up and fight her for real.  It actually takes less time than deciding on strategy, gathering up whatever items you need, and then equipping yourself properly.

It is, however, a spectactularly wussy and unclever way to win.

Thank god...33 adventures and tons of restoratives, but I managed to combine head butts, spectral snappers, plot holes and lunging thrust smacks to get to the point where I could smack the 2nd form around with the wand.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on February 14, 2006, 10:00:50 AM
Wow... I'm sorry you had such a hard time.

I thought it was an issue b/c I had so many skills... but I just beat her yesterday on the 1st try with a brand new unascended muscle char.

I don't know what's going wrong for you... I wore a furry suit, a talon, an enchanted toothpick (but I only had chronic indigestion, thrust-smack and lunging-ts) an acid squirting flower and hamethyst bracelet.  He was Softcore, so he had more options for buying stuff (but I think you are too).

I smacked her with LTS... beat her with my wand... burped on her... and pounded her with torpedos.  My flower and my fam (a ghost pickle) beat on her pretty good.  I restored with elixers and won on the 1st shot.

Maybe luck???

Post by: Poncho on February 14, 2006, 10:09:57 AM
It goes fairly well... we took some bad whuppins' from a couple of people (we obviously knew we would... they were big guns) but overall it's good.  We hold over 3/4 of the board and have every update since roll.  That's pretty impressive to me.

I wish I was a little more active... but I'm in that weird spot.  I'm not tough enough to take the top 5 or so opposing contenders... but I'm way too tough for 95% of the rest of HC KoL to even try.  Being a L22 muscle class... I'm a little tough to snipe, so the snipers have even left me alone for the most part.

I haven't been hit much... except a couple of n00bicides and by staying at the bottom 1/3 of the top 30... I'm not giving enough rank for the top gunners to care.

All-in-all I think it's going really well.  Ultimately, we just wanted to make a statement... PVP is fun and relevant in the context of the game.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Juliana on February 14, 2006, 10:12:50 AM
Yeah, I might try it with one of my characters after I read up on the whole thing.  I know Lunar is a big fan of it, and has told me on more than one occasion that I'd dig it.Maybe Rosealia will get into the game.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on February 14, 2006, 10:24:49 AM
Yeah I was surprised someone ended up winning a Baio.

I'm not much help in the thing myself, being a lowly level 19 Seal Clubber.  I can't really snipe because my minis are lame, except for flowers.  I doubt there are more than a handful of folks who could beat me there.

Anyway, it's kinda fun.  I have 27 PvP fights today.  Poncho, I'll send you my password- maybe you can do a couple fights for me so I don't feel all left out while I'm stuck at work unable to login.  Stupid ass firewalls.  Anyway, I got a few n00bs bouncing off me.  As of early this morning, I was low enough in rank not to really matter to anyone.  Still, I'm an easy win for most of the serious competitors, and who knows how many people are laying in wait for later in the day... the strategy being that we might have used up most our fights by then.

Anyway, yay for IP revitalizing PvP!

So Sars is back to her HCO runs.  In the end, I decided I might as well do one more Seal Clubber run even though I'm fucking tired of being one.  Should be a MUCH faster run than any of my previous Oxy runs.  Then it's onto TT with my Pike Pike and then I tackle the moxie signs to complete my plexiglass outfit.  Yay!  I'll be done in, oh, maybe April?  Sigh... then I suppose it'll be time to complete the stainless steel set.  I got the SC one- can't spell it for shit so I'm not even gonna try.

2. Go back to the house.

South, South, East

3. See if you got the trophy. Look at mantle. If there is a trophy...

Take trophy

4. Fire it up and get on.

Examine tinder, Look at parchment, Light fireplace, Take boots, Wear boots, West, South, South

5. Get out of the maze.

Go any direction it offers you until it strikes it out and tells you enough is enough

6. Do the tree thing and get rid of the giant.

Climb tree, Take egg, Look at petunias, Throw egg at roadrunner, Down, Look in leaves, Up, Throw ruby at petunias, Up, Look at scroll, gnusto cleesh, Cleesh giant, Take ring

That's all we know so far.

Yeah, we blocked off the intro forums.... but added you guys to the radio section.  Point being... you guys could school them on some of the musix.  Some of you had radio access before... now ALL of you do.

The intros forum went IP only (plus recruits)... just so we could grill some potential members and they could speak freely without having someone non-IP reading it.

There were a lot more folks than you guys reading it... so it wasn't personal, just a procedure change.

Rosealia beat the NS today! Yay!

She was a Level 12 AT
Fury suit
Pirate shirt
Flaming Talons
Ring of Increase damage
Hobo Gloves
Disembodied smile
20 lb pickle with 5 lb razor blade addition (so 25 total lbs)

It took 3 tries.  In the first two, her second form kicked my ass, but in the third one, I beat the first form pretty handily with just hitting (and all that awesome elemental damage), and healing when I could.  I used about 5 plotholes (i think 3 worked on her), and 12 or so elixers.

Yeah that just means no one is spinning tunes on the radio at the moment.  I used to have a claim on Thursdays nights, but then some stuff got in the way and I haven't found a suitable time slot that I would be able to do every week.  I'd really prefer Mondays, but that's when J&S do their show on radio KoL, so there's no point doing it then.  Oh well.

We used to run the RIP almost 24/7


Our catchall DJ (the guy with no life and no job) got the boot from the clan for being an idiot... so we lost his lameness being a fill-in.

Anybody notice that Boozerbear is charging 350 for a bottle of Rum?  When did that start? I noticed it yesterday, but thought maybe he accidentally did it.  It's back again today though.  All the other booze is still at the lowest possible price.

Who's Boozerbear?  

Btw, I noticed there are ten leaf clovers available today at the hermitage, if anyone needs some.  That is...if that algorithm is the same for everyone.  I don't really know.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on March 09, 2006, 07:47:07 PM
Yeah if clovers are there, they're there for everyone.


I don't know all the BoozerBear history, but he was THE connection for Salty Dogs back in the day.  And  he's pretty much a booze emporium, and from what I remember, he was a pretty skilled bugfinder, and was/is rolling in meat.  Poncho, correct me if I'm wrong???
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on March 10, 2006, 08:43:25 AM
nope... you are right.

He's pretty much the original bugfinder guru.  At one time he and a couple other had basically 75% or more of the wealth in the entire kingdom.  That isn't even vaguely true now... but he's still pretty rich.

He's famous for low-meat sales (yes, primarily salties back in the day) and for the fact that he once bought up 1000 Mr. A's... just to donate them BACK to Jick.

A quick look in his display case will tell you some interesting things...

He has 1000 more Mr. A's just sitting there
1M salties
100 Golden Mr. A's
At least 300 of the Mr. Store familiars sitting there in raw form
The entire Mafia gear and mafia wines
All of the ultra-rares (Hypnodisk, Baio, IDMG, etc)
Several custom items (NO beer, Otorian Battlescar, W23 Bling, Mahi Fez, etc)
Several items that don't technically exist (voodoo doll, million meat pancakes, Mr. Shirt, Item 13, big ol' trophy, consolation ribbon, birthday candle, etc)
All the Crimbo gear 2003, 2004 and 2005

Is there a hat which gives more adventures per day when equipped?  I have something for every other category that I wear to bed, but not for my head.  I know the Time Helmet does this, but I don't have 2 million meat to get one.  Is there anything cheaper?

(of course, if these items don't work the way I think they do, please speak up)
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on March 20, 2006, 08:13:36 PM
Yeah, chrome weapons add adventures.

Um.... star outfit, I think.

Dead man's watch, tiny plastic crimbo reindeer... imitation nice watch, but those are expensive, too... and..... hmm.... I know I'm forgetting stuff.

Dead man's watches and TPCR's are cheapish, I think, and I could definitely send you a dead man's watch if you don't have one.  They drop at the cemetary and occasionally you can get one at the crypt, which is awesome when they just randomly drop, especially when you're in oxycore.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Dan on March 20, 2006, 09:09:04 PM
Yeah, I've got:
Chrome Sword
Time Trousers
Tiny Plastic Crimbo Reindeer
Dead Guy's Watch
Tiny Plastic Bitchin' Meatcar

I just figured that there had to be something to put on my head that I could afford.  I put these on every time I'm done adventuring.  I get an extra bunch of adventures with this, right?
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Ella Minnow Pea on March 20, 2006, 10:34:09 PM
That's awfully similar to my custom outfit labeled "PJs". ;)

If you can get a Time helmet and Time sword, you can get another extra 3 adventures, in addition to the 3 adventures each gives individually.

Make sure you have a pagoda, too.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: scurvygirl on March 20, 2006, 10:41:13 PM
Yeah, good stuff, El.  I have "jammies" on Ferntastica.  Sars is HCO so I don't even bother with custom outfits on her unless I get lucky on drops.

Fernie is: complete time outfit, imitation nice watch, dead man's watch, TPCR

Oh, and the March familiar, the wild hare, it gives extra adventures based on how many wins you get with it while adventuring.  It's my new favorite familiar. It owns in oxycore.

Yep! I dropped my cheshire for the wild hare.  It rocks HCO so damn much.  FYI, a cool thing I discovered last week- if you get beaten up and have no soft greens- heal a tiny bit, take the hare, adventure once, get beaten up again, and it removes all turns of beaten up.  Nice.

I like the fake hand, because it actually did fool me.  I was like "Cool, an extra off-hand item slot!"  Then I realized that the hand itself occupied a slot, so it's essentially just -1 Melee damage.

So tell me what I need to know regarding ... well, April 1.  

I've been adventuring in the Pickle Factory (thanks for the heads up, L) and that's all cool.  Is the tome of hilarious summoning (or whatever) worth buying?  Will it still be there tomorrow?  I noticed that tomorrow is an oyster egg day.  Should I be saving up my adventures for that, or should I spend them on the Factory today?  I guess my only goal around here these days is to make lots of money, unless you can recommend a better goal ?

April 1 comes around once a REAL year, while Oyster Eggs come around once every KOL year (4 times a REAL year).  Also, anyone can go hunting for at least some of the Oyster Eggs but even when the Pickle Factory appears, not everyone can get in.  Like me.  I've *still* never been to the stupid thing.

‘Bored, lonely’ man charged in horrific crime
Suspect described as ‘quiet’ submerged ‘dangerously weird’ fantasies


PURCELL, Okla. - The man accused of killing a 10-year-old neighbor girl for an elaborate plan to eat human flesh joked about cannibalism on his online diary, discussed the effects of not taking his anti-depression medication and mentioned “dangerously weird” fantasies.

All he wanted in life, Kevin Ray Underwood wrote in his blog, was “to be able to live like a normal person.”

People who knew Underwood described him Sunday as a quiet, “boring” and seemingly trustworthy young man. His mother who lived across town called him a “wonderful boy.”

The 26-year-old grocery store stocker was arrested Friday. Investigators searched his apartment after he aroused their suspicions at a checkpoint, and found a large plastic tub in a bedroom closet. According to a police affidavit, he confessed that he killed Jamie Rose Bolin, telling FBI agents: “Go ahead and arrest me. She is in there. I chopped her up.”

Jamie’s unclothed body was inside the tub, along with a towel used to soak up blood, officials said. Police said that, while there were deep saw marks on the girl’s neck, she had not been dismembered.

Elaborate plan
“Regarding a potential motive,” Purcell Police Chief David Tompkins said Saturday, “this appears to have been part of a plan to kidnap a person, rape them, torture them, kill them, cut off their head, drain the body of blood, rape the corpse, eat the corpse then dispose of the organs and bones.”

Investigators found meat tenderizer and barbecue skewers that he planned to use on the body, McClain County District Attorney Tim Kuykendall said in this small community 40 miles south of Oklahoma City.

Underwood, who is to be formally charged with first-degree murder Monday, lived alone in an apartment downstairs from the one where Jamie lived with her father.

Authorities believe Underwood killed the girl Wednesday, when she disappeared after going to a library, by beating and smothering her.

‘Always a wonderful boy’
“This is something that I don’t know where it came from,” Underwood’s mother, Connie, said through tears in a brief telephone interview Sunday with The Associated Press. “He was always a wonderful boy.

“I would like to be able to tell her family how sorry we are. I just feel so terrible.” On his blog, an online diary that he had kept since September 2002, Underwood described himself as “single, bored, and lonely, but other than that, pretty happy.”

He mentions cannibalism, asking “If you were a cannibal, what would you wear to dinner?” and responding: “The skin of last night’s main course.”

In an entry dated Feb. 4, 2006, Underwood wrote that he struggled with depression and social interaction.

His greatest wish: Be ‘like a normal person’ “Pretty much the only time I believe in God is when I blame him for something,” he said. “Or, when I’m really depressed, to cry and beg him to make me better, to make whatever is wrong in my brain go away, so that I can live like a normal person.

“That’s all I want in life, is to be able to live like a normal person.”

He wrote that he rarely left his apartment for long stretches, except to go to work and to buy food. “I just sit here at the computer every minute of the day, when I’m not at work. A week or so ago, I spent my day off sitting here at the computer, barely moving from the chair, for 14 hours.”

He said one of his main interests was the online role-playing game “Kingdom of Loathing,” in which stick figures battle one another.

In September 2004, he wrote that his depression deepened after several months without taking the medication Lexapro, an antidepressant also used in the treatment of anxiety disorders.

“For example, my fantasies are just getting weirder and weirder. Dangerously weird,” he wrote. “If people knew the kinds of things I think about anymore, I’d probably be locked away. No probably about it, I know I would be.”

Dutiful but ‘boring’ worker Underwood worked for nearly seven years at a Carl’s Jr. restaurant, where shift leader Bill Verdan described him as a quiet person who kept to himself. “He did a good job,” Verdan said Sunday.

However, he said Underwood, who quit about a year ago, was a “boring” man who rarely smiled. “Just his tone of voice, he just sounded dull,” Verdan said. “Trying to get a smile out of him took an act of Congress.”

Verdan said he and his wife and young daughters never suspected anything unusual. “He gave my wife rides home from work numerous times,” he said. “We never felt uncomfortable. I talked to my girls after this happened, and they said they felt comfortable around him.”

His most recent job was as a stocker at a Griders Discount Foods grocery store in Oklahoma City, where he arrived early for his shift Friday, said a manager at the store, Jerry Castro.

“He was the same as always,” Castro said. “He was quiet and kept to himself. He didn’t interact with people. It just didn’t dawn on you that this was something he’d do.”

To tell the truth, I don't really know why I hate PvP so much, I just do, and I tend to think of everyone who enjoys it as dangerous sociopaths who should seek professional help. Especially people who take as much delight in it as the members of Iocaine Powder do. I've never even tried PvP, and I'm probably the least competitive person you'll ever see. I hate anything that lets you compete against other people, in games or in real life. I hate sports with all my heart and soul.

I also don't like PvP because of the chance of losing items and stats to other people. Since I am a rabid collector of items, taking my stuff is the worst thing I can imagine.

I hope the massive PvP revamp that has been promised for so long finally happens and makes everyone's PvP ownage plans obsolete.

Familiar- Ghost Pickle 20 lbs + razor

I used the "attack with wand" mainly, some Lunging Thrust Smacks which I have from a previous life, and about 10 elixers.

I read on Wiki that some people suggested going in w/o clothes.  I guess that it worked for me.  It was about 7 tries, 4 of which were lost on purpose.

Get yourself trained in dual funkslinging, stock up on plot holes and photoprotoneutron torpedos and use an attack familiar other than the GPoaS...you'll never have to lose a single fight to the NS.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on May 10, 2006, 03:43:30 PM
I would disagree with the "use an attack familiar other than the GPoaS" statement... unless you mean the NPZR... the GPoaS is a superb choice and the one I use on chars that don't have the NPZR.

I agree with the plot holes and photos.  I would add grenades.. as they ROCK!

I haven't had a fight with the NS take more than two tries on any character (HC, SC, many skills, few skills) in at least six months.  That NS is way too easy... but that's an opinion.

Disco Bandits are tough... but dual funkslinging is where it's at... I still go FURRY SUIT every single time.  If you don't have the ability to make pants... you get the wand and zap a wolf mask.  It's the only way to fly.

The only reason I say "other than the GPoas" is that I hate keeping track of the deleveling (GPoaS still delevels, right?).  1st form?  Land 2 plot holes.  2nd form?  Land 3.  From there, I just use the furry suit and some sauceror accessories and blast away with torp/DGHE dual shots and stream of sauce.

Post by: IPrayForTang on May 11, 2006, 07:54:07 AM
I shoulda been more specific.  I mean that when the GPoaS drips caustic juice, it delevels your opponent.  Am I completely wrong on that one?  Either way, I always just go in with the MMTMMM and he lobs missiles at her.  Never fails me.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Poncho on May 11, 2006, 10:37:19 AM
That's sort of a 2-for-1 deal.  He attacks much harder than the MMTMMM and he delevels the strength of the monster.  You don't need or have the ability to track that deleveling.  

The MMTMMM is a straight killer.... both have +/- but ultimately I suppose it falls to preference.  I think weak-weak-weak-STRONG-weak-weak-STRONG isn't as good as medium-medium-weaken-medium-weaken-medium-medium.... but that's me.  I wouldn't discount either option though.

That is so annoying.  I just spent three days getting my ass kicked trying to get to level 10 on the peak, hoping I wouldn't cast wave of cold alfredo sauce.  My last run, Jick made the turtle tamer changes right when I was levelling up familiars for the final run.

It is a good idea though.  Saucerors are pretty weak and they need a lot of money for spells and a way to level up between 7-10.  Being able to cast El. Saucesphere and hit the peak accomplishes that, but not when half the time your most kick-ass skill does 1 damage.

Rhinestone...
Wand
Batblade
Ye olde gold's...
Boris' Ring

That combined with a plot hole and a grenade did the job really quite easily. Hurrah!

Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Juliana on June 02, 2006, 12:55:48 PM
The astral mushrooms give 5 turns each of the "half astral" effect.  When you're "half astral" you get to decide on one of 3 adventure paths.  Each has different things in it.  
So, basically you get 30 adventures/day of half astral.  The mushrooms don't count as food (I assume), as they're listed under the "Potions" section of your inventory.

The new area is pretty fun.  I'm a level 21 or something stupid like that, but one adventure gave me almost 200 stat points in muscle.  There were corresponding adventures for mysticallity and moxie that I turned down though.

There are special cupcake drops.  Not sure what they do yet.  I think there's a pink, blue, green, orange and purple cupcakes.  They're under "potions."  I don't know if they act similar to the snowcones or what though.  The wiki didn't have anything up about them when I was adventuring this morning.

Buy a mushroom (they were about 60K this morning) if you can afford it and swing on by, or if you want, I can give you one tomorrow when I get more.

If you're really into KOL, I would not recommend HC OXY.  It takes a long time, and you will miss out on all the cool things that get introduced while you're in your run.  And no Feast of Boris or St. Patricks day.

I like it because I can just play KOL for 15 minutes and then I'm done.  But I have no idea what's really going on with KOL.   Three-tiered wedding cake, astral mushrooms, snocones?  I have no clue what y'all are talking about.  

I guess if you have a bunch of skills collected in HC then HC oxy might not be as painful for you as it is for me.  But still, it's basically like playing very old school (like early 2005 era before the crazy food and drinks) KOL over and over again with different characters, and I think you've already done that.

J... Hardcore Oxy is the toughest possible way to play the game AND the easiest.  You get 40 turns a day (you can add a few by collecting things like dead man's watch, installing a maid, etc) and you get nothing to play with that you don't find.  You can eat no booze and no food... even if you find it.  You're an Oxygenarian... you live on oxygen alone.  My roughest HCO run took 41 days to ascend.  My best was 24 days.  There are folks that run much faster... but they have a ton of hardcore skills.  If you have NO hardcore skills and go HCO as your first HC run... talk to Lauren.  I believe she did that.  I know someone else who did that and it took 60+ days to do ONE ascension.  Definitely a challenge.

I also say it's the easiest because it take 15 minutes a day and you really can't "plan" how to play.  You just have to take your turns.

I did HCO for my first HC run, but since I don't play daily, it took months (93 days). It's better for me, so I don't spend as much time as when I have extra adventures.

HCO is the way for non-daily players.  You can go at least 4 days between playing and you won't lose anything (except daily buffs and buff-stuff like reagents, noodles, snowcones... but if you don't have those, you lost nothing!).

All 3 of my chars managed to make it this time (which is a first for me).  I was worried since Skeve just ascended and was still in ronin, but I managed to make it thanks to the bang potions.  I managed to pull the right one first time for drunkenness and I have just enough to make it past 25.  Now the question is what happens tomorrow...

Disco Bandit
Hat- None

Weapon- WAND
Familiar- Ghost Pickle 20 lbs + razor

Dirty hobo Gloves
Ring of Increase Damage
Acid Flower

I used the "attack with wand" mainly, some Lunging Thrust Smacks which I have from a previous life, and about 10 elixers.

I read on Wiki that some people suggested going in w/o clothes.  I guess that it worked for me.  It was about 7 tries, 4 of which were lost on purpose.


Did it again with Killa as the Disco Bandit (I ascended with the wrong skill because I'm a freaking GENIUS!

It only took me 4 tries against her this time, and I didn't use the LTS at all, just the wand attack, and about 5 elixers.

Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on December 05, 2006, 12:47:37 PM
They're talking about kolmafia.  

It's a program that basically automates the playing of kol.  For example, you can pick "Crimbotown" from a list of adventures, then type 50, then set what spell you want to use (if you use them), or a rough pattern of how you will fight.  It'll then run 50 adventures for you and keep track of your stat gains, meat, etc.

If you're like Juliana, who has to go through 20 turns of combat each each time you fight an elf, it's a lot faster.  

The only problem with it is one of collective action.  First, it sends a lot of commands rapid-fire. Second, because you don't have to click anything, people tend to fight very inefficiently either on purpose or just through indifference/lack of customizing attacks.  That increases the lag quite a bit when everyone is using it.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Misfitt on December 05, 2006, 03:48:15 PM
yes...tell me more of this mafia. I've heard about HOW it works and what it does but where do you get it and etc.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: rva on December 05, 2006, 08:58:05 PM
You can get it from here:

https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=126572

If you have PC, just download the .exe file and run it and it will install itself.

If you've played the game, the rest should be simple.  There's lots of advanced features to automate pretty much every last thing from buying and selling to farming to completing quests, but you don't have to mess with all that unless you want to.

Essentially you get a three tab interface, with the default equal to "adventure."  You just pick an area to adventure from the drop down box, set the your attack (weapon, or various skills) and the number of turns you want to expend.  Then it'll run those turns for you.

If you want to be more "in touch" than Mafia lets you be... I'd try the Greasemonkey script KoL Tool Belt.

I actually started using KOLToolbelt, which is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox.  It isn't quite as mafia (there is no buffbot stuff for example), but it is working great for the crimbo stuff.  I will probably swap back to mafia after Crimbo, but until then, KOLToolbelt is the way to go.

Senor el Sane, so far I've been hitting up the gallery.  If I stick with it, when my moxie's high enough to not get effed all the time (without crazy amounts of buffing that I'm not willing to spend meat on), I'm gonna move to the bedroom.  Is there something else I can do after that?  From what I understand, after level 21 I should be myst gymming in Canadia, and I'm pretty sure I could knock out another HC run in less time that the difference between myst gym and no myst gym.  Also, there's the whole getting-my-adventuring-for-the-day-done-in-5-minutes thing I'm missing out on this way (though I could mafia it, I s'pose...I just don't wanna deal with the Louvre maze in there, mostly 'cause the thing's been screwy for the last few releases and I don't trust it.  I should stop typing now.

Mafia 10.0 is working fine in the louvre... that's about the only place, but it's working fine there.

Y'know I'm not really sure I understand the pickpocketting skill. It seems to allow you to get the items from the monster that you would have gotten if you'd beaten it in combat and then....run away...still spending the adventure and not getting any stat boost and not really getting any more or less item/meat for your trouble. If your spending the adventure, why not just battle it out and get all the benefits: unless of course you can't beat the monster? I also think that item boosting familiars don't aid in the acquirement of items in this method since they're boost comes into affect at the end of the battle, right? Therefore, you'd gain even less from it then battling it to the end.
Anyway, my point is: if you want to use the pickpocketting ability be sure to equip as much item boosting equip that you can because it seems to make a difference.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: dirk on January 11, 2007, 01:17:08 PM
I haven't messed with the pickpocketing skills yet, but I assume you can pickpocket and then still fight the mob, right (Misfitt's descriptions doesn't sound this way, but to me it is the only way it would make sense)?  If so, it is basicly a way to have a better chance at getting an item.  You give up first shot and try to PP.  if you succeed, you are guaranteed an item, whereas there is only a percentage chance an item will drop when you kill it.  

Plus, there are the PP only items.
Title: KoL: Clan
Post by: Misfitt on January 11, 2007, 03:38:26 PM
ah, yes, sorry.
You can pickpocket and still fight. However, as I've been using it you don't always get an item with the pickpocket AND if you do pickpocket and get an item you don't get an item at the end of the battle. Therefore, except for the couple of only pickpocketable items there's no real advantage. Mind you, these posts are questions and not statements. I'm just not sure. I'm also currently running in HCO mode. So, my experience might be a bit different at the moment. Maybe I should just wait to be making any comments, anyway.

I think what may behind your wonderment is just style of play.  There are those of us who (while in HC or HCO) like to try and sneak out a few things a little early.  We may fight some monsters that we really can't beat yet.  This skill is amazing for that.  I can pop an astromer for a star chart before I'm strong enough to beat him.  If I can get 3 of them... I could ascend faster than if I waited until I was strong enough.

If this still doesn't make sense... ask.

That does make sense. I guess I spoke before completely experiencing. I can see how a pick and run technique could help get those upper items before being able to gain them conventionally.

At this point I just need ways to perm skills faster. I'm going to start doing HC runs with another character, which I think will take a couple of years to get through. I at least want to get a few done before NS13, but I may be too late.

Otherwise I just want some rare/ultra rare items. Petronella and Rigby don't have NPZRs, so a zombie pineal gland would be helpful. Rigby doesn't have a GPOAS, either. They aren't really needed, as I have other ways to defeat the NS, but the need to have a complete set of non-IOM familiars for both of them would be nice.

And Zazilia would love a Tiny Plastic Sword, but I don't think I'll ever have enough meat for one of those! :D

Oh nice, I just sent Rigby a GPOAS.  I had a spare on Fernie.

Thanks! She'll be out of HC in a day or two.

Speaking of which, once you've defeated the NS and freed the king, you have access to all your goodies, right? If you obtain any skills then can they be made HP?

I'm still playing, too. Although, I abandoned y'all and started my OWN clan with my OWN friends where we have our OWN fun.
But, I'm quickly amassing a nice bank of meat. So, if anyone needs anything, I still have a latent loyalty to everyone and would be happy to help out. Just kmail me.

You're welcome, and yes yes yes.  Free the king, you get all your shit back, and you can buy whatever skills and HC permanent them.

If you actually have this mysterious thing called "friends" why would you even be here? I wish I had friends. Lucky.

I have them, OK!? Why doesn't anyone ever believe me? Gosh! When my girlfriend in California comes in to visit, I'm just not going to introduce you because you're just mean.

Ooooooooh....excitement.  Did everyone get a (very) late 1st anniversary gift?

Yep - but since I'm in Hardcore or Ronin, I have no idea what it is yet.

You get a new one for each anniversary.  I haven't opened mine, but I should have 3 in there.

1. anniversary chutney sculpture

I got one of those, spandex anniversary shorts and a jar of anniversary jam.  I got all of them today.  I've never been given anything else except access to lamechat.

Wow.
This is my first time REALLY playing in a *cough* couple of months, and I'm digging this new stuff so far.

Soooooooo laggy.  This sucks.  I think I'm just going to not play for the next few days.

I'm giving 75% of what I've seen so far... a big fat thumbs down.

We'll see how it plays out.

Seriously Ponch?
I'm digging it pretty well so far.
I'm actually playing a little, which is something I haven't been able to make time for since Mid-March or so.

I'm still not sold... and I still think it is TOOOOO drawn out.

That said... I'm getting ready to start my first "clean slate" NS13 run.  I'll give more feedback when that is done.

I find myself cracking up at a lot of the stuff.  IT's annoying, because Kwyj is the only one I have to talk to about it, and he's oblivious.  I'm all
"hahaha, and there's this beach.....hahahahah, and it's called Sunova Beach hahahahahahha"
and he's all "uh, heh"

Thanks... I'm dropping the meat for 100 tickets a day.  I figured 100k is well worth it if I win something and on the 2nd day out of the chute I did!
Title: Re: KoL: Clan
Post by: Ella Minnow Pea on January 14, 2008, 08:52:35 AM
I'm dropping a mere 5-10k per day, but I'm doing some farming to try and raise my available meat. (I finally broke 1m with Zazilia. Inconsistent playing and buying trophies depletes my meat.)

If I can figure out what I need, I will!

I just had someone send me a gift after purchasing a few mid priced items in my store. That's a first! (I do have some of the cheapest herb brownies and weegee sqouijas around - what else is a HC character going to do them but sell them?)

Anyone still play this thing? I'm WAAAY late to the party but I just recently started playing.

Post by: Juliana on January 13, 2009, 11:02:46 PM
I always start to think about playing on my lunch at work, but then I log on my niece's webkinz and play games on that instead.

It just became too time consuming.  It shouldn't have been, but it really can suck all your free time up if you try to compete like some of the folks over there do.
Title: Re: KoL: Clan
Post by: dirk on January 14, 2009, 06:59:25 AM
I'm still playing every day.  I agree it can definitely be time consuming, which is why I usually just use KOLMafia to play my turns.  If I was playing all 3 characters by hand it would be forever, but with mafia I can get them done in under 30 minutes and still do other stuff while mafia is playing the turns.

Which is funny because I went the other way on that.  I have managed to stay away from WoW for almost 2 years now, but KoL is still going strong for me.

I'm afraid to try WoW.  I would probably get too obsessed.  KoL is bad enough.

Hah. Didn't know that.

So he and I are the only ones in our clan that are using the basement... I wasn't sure how it works so I didn't want to step on anyone. Of course, I've played a solid 3 or 4 hundred turns down there now so it's irrelevant.

Our rville clan only has 4 active members. Hilarious.
