    The Kingdom of Loathing?

    I've just been recently instructed to play this exciting game, (judging by its cover it looks boring as crap)

    Can anyone tell me what its really about?

    Let's just say that's why you don't judge books by their covers. To summarize, I've been playing for a year and a half. Zodiac's been playing longer.

    It's a simple adventuring game where you try to save the land from evil baddie, then do it again. The game's glory is not in graphics, but in comedy and gameplay. Admitedly, it's not for everyone. It's very low action and very weak graphically (fast load times), but as soon as you get past that, you'll never quit.

    You do have to realize that early on you are too weak to do much. To get into the real content you have to be a bit stronger and beat the game once.

    If you like seeing references and parodies to just about anything pop-culture, stick with it, you'll like it. Same goes for strategy games with a couple puzzles. But if you need action, then it's simply not for you.

    At some parts, yeah it is like that. Really, you should choose if you like it or not on your own after a couple days of playing it. Just don't give up on it right away.

    Its a fun game. Contrary to what others have said, it does not take very little time to play. I can easily spend 1.5 hours a day (that is including pvp, that is the big time hog). One can gamble as the MMG, play the mall and pvp other players.

    You can join a clan and have interaction wtih your clanmates. After playing for some time, you can get into some of the better clans that either specialize in pvp, KOL community work or speed ascending.

    This is not a mindless point and click game. It was starting to get mindless for me so I went HC.

    Shame on you Freet...you haven't logged on in awhile. I think a diller smacking is in order!

    That was all in jest...lord knows sometimes I have problems logging in.

    Freet and Dondrei and doing great! As I said before, it is not an easy game.

    I'll have you know I logged in yesterday and today. I've a gambling problem now, thanks to this game.

    Edit: Zodi, in the game you asked how I was doing and I typed up this long response and, as soon as I hit enter, you logged off.

    Now I need a nap.

    You know..Zodi lost all her meat. Luckily she bought another Baio before loosing her shirt yet again.

    The MMG is a good thing..yet a bad thing. It is a horrible addiction.

    Hey Freet, what's your character called? Wait, let me guess: "Freet"?

    I never really got into that MMG. I have more fun elsewhere in the game.

    I'm doing the Hardcore ascending thing with my main character (DraconisUK), just completed his fourth Hardcore Teetotal run, and onto his fifth (first run as a Seal Clubber, first run as a Muscle sign.)

    My other character (the_drac) is taking the more leisurely spin through softcore, and also happens to be a Seal Clubber at the moment.
