Kingdom of Loathing

Wow. I cannot believe this thread is still alive and kicking. Or maybe just alive

I'm in! I've got a lvl 10 Sauceror (QStone) and a lvl 4 Seal Clubber (Abraham Thunderwolff).

Oh man, this game just sucks you back in, doesn't it? I'm Rajaz, a sauceror, and I"ll look for the clan when I am of level.

I'm just about to ascend...so close, I'm coming for you, you naughty sorceress!

I have a level 8 from about a year ago but I totally forgot where I was in the game and what I was hunting for. So I just gave a couple of startup items to my new guy and I'm rolling through. Can't wait to get my bitchin' meatcar again!

Anyone know any smithing recipes? I want to upgrade my meatsword.

Hey paint! Are you the one in charge of accepting guild membership requests?

This was my preffered helper page from a year ago: http://www.agesoftime.com/kol/index.php

I'm sure it's a bit out of date now, but should still be good for the early game.

I beat the Sorceress! Now I'm going to farm a bit and make some money before I ascend.

i applied for it too

oh yeah i forgot im a lvl6 seal clubber

I'm posting this here rather than starting a new topic, due to the sheer size of this thread.

Does anyone still play? I've been playing for a little over a week now and I forgot how much fun this game was. I've been playing a level 12 Accordion thief and I've been enjoying it very much so.

I'm playing still; got 30 or so ascensions. Right now I'm a lvl 8 Pastamancer.

Name is tanstaafl over there too.

30 ascensions? Wow.

This my first time around. I'm about to start meat farming, which should be interesting.

What level do you usually ascend at?

I dabble on occasion... no asenscions, just enjoy the sheer mindlessness of it all. My name is buk buk buk buk buk buk buk. I think, haven't logged in a while.

OMG, talk about your necros.

I usually ascend around level 13 or 14, though for the last few I've held off until 15 or so because I've been collecting the level 15 skills so I can make hi-meins. That's slowed me down a bit; for a while it was only taking me around 11 or 12 days to ascend but the last few have been more like 20 days.

I'm by no means a speed ascender either; I know many people who easily ascend in half that time. (And my first ascension took over a year, but we won't talk about that one.) Still, I've got 32 ascensions now, 30 of them in hardcore.

And, yeah, it's a bit of a necro thread. For those of you who haven't been back to the Kingdom for a while, things have changed quite a bit. You don't fight Her Naughtiness until level 13 now and there are two new and fairly involved quests at levels 11 and 12. Also, the pirate cove has been completely reworked and expanded and there are mysterious things to be discovered out in the ocean. Lots of other minor changes to the way other quests work as well, including some new guild quests. All this has come about in the past year.

I'll weave in and out of the Kingdom; If you're ever in the Games Channel, say hi to 'seadragon' - that's me, usually doing Rhyming Trivia for prizes while I'm there.

Yea, I'm hoping to ascend soon, but I don't have the gear for it. I'm stuck on the MacGuffin quest, which should tell you something. Is the MacGuffin required for the naughty sorceress anyway? I might just not do it because it's so long.

Where are you on the MacGuffin quest? There are several things you have to do in other locations before you can complete it. For example, you have to reach a certain point in the pirates quest before you can complete one part and you have to have adventured in the Haunted Bedroom and collected a certain object there before you can do another part.

And while you don't need the MacGuffin itself to defeat the sorceress (it's just a MacGuffin, after all) you have to have completed all of the other quests they give you before the Council will give you the quest to defeat the Sorceress. So, yeah, you have to finish it.

Bleh.

Well, I have all the requirements in other places according to the wiki. I should be done soon, then I can start on the sorceress.

Arise!

I've been adventuring in my own clan "Sephirotic Academy" and we just bought the basement and access to hobopolis. That put me out 11 million meat! If anyone is interested, I'll be accepting applications to the clan, because I want to adventure with you guys. You see, Hobopolis is the first multiplayer dungeon in the game.

You can find us in the clan directory. Just leave me a message as to who you are on the forums.

Crap.

All my characters are already in clans with dungeon access. :/

Hey, I'd be up for it. I've been meaning to mess around with Hobopolis, but I'm nowhere close to 11 million meat, and I'm a bit too "casual" to hook up with any of the big-name clans. (I'm actually a pretty hardcore player--I'm finishing my 9th hardcore ascension now--but I don't have time to hang out in *more* community forums.)

I'll send an in-game application.

I still play quite a bit (on my 36th hardcore ascension right now, 38th overall) but I'm already in a clan and we've been making basement runs for a while now (just started our 8th). Sorry.

Yeah, um, that wasn't directed at the folks that already have access.

That being said, impressive ascension collections! I'm on my 11th hardcore with one character. I've limited basement access to mains only. I was worried about the multi-abuse mentioned on the 4th wall. Anybody know if bans are occuring?

Seph, if you use more than one character in one instance of the dungeon, it's considered multi abuse. I know that they do ban for it but I don't know how good they are about enforcing the policy. Just to be safe I have each of my characters in a different clan.

Oh, yeah, and to you NOOBS, I have about 70 hardcore ascensions across my three characters.

The beast is slain! Finally finished this fricken cloverless bee HC run with a whopping one permed skill. I wonder how long it'll be until I stop automatically scanning every item and monster for b's.

Highlight of the run was failing to roll eleven versus the skeleton 35, count 'em, 35 times.

On to Bad Moon!

Crap! I haven't touched this in a few years, but every time someone even mentions KoL I end up playing it through ascension again.
