An Adventurer Is You!
Have you ever wanted to beat up hippies? How about delve into a dungeon full of dungeons? Have you ever had the urge to wear a hat made of meat? Now you can!
Kingdom of Loathing (KoL) is a funny and addictive browser-based RPG game where you attempt to rescue King Ralph XI from the Naughty Sorceress. Seeing as how it’s a text-based adventure game, it’s extremely easy to play and since you only receive 40 adventures (turns) a day, you can’t waste your life playing it. You can get more adventures a day by making and eating food, as well as drinking booze (don’t drink too much though, otherwise you will get drunk and end up in a "Drunken Stupor").
When you begin, you start with nothing, but over time, you will come discover powerful weapons (like the Titanium Assault Umbrella or the Stainless Steel Shillelagh), powerful clothing (like the Pimpin’ Meat Hat or the Duck Tape Dockers) and many, many accessories (like the Dirty Hobo Gloves or the Hockey Stick of Furious Angry Rage).
You also get to bring many little creatures (familiars) with you on your journey (like the Clockwork Grapefruit or a Ghost Pickle on a Stick). Each one does something a little bit different to help you along your way.
Here is the back story for the game, taken from the KoL website:
The Kingdom of Loathing was once a pleasant place, where all the citizens loathed one another equally and nobody caused too much trouble. Under the gentle rule of King Ralph XI, peace had prevailed for as long as anybody could remember.
One fateful Porktober morning, a Sorceress came to the Kingdom. A Naughty Sorceress. A Naughty Sorceress who was clearly up to no good, and even more clearly up to plenty of bad. King Ralph sought to expel the Naughty Sorceress from his Kingdom, but she imprismed him in a black crystalline shard of curdled magic. It was very dramatic.
Monsters emerged from their hidey-holes to terrorize the citizens of Loathing, and larger monsters emerged from larger hidey-holes to terrorize those monsters, all under the control of the Naughty Sorceress.
In the King’s absence, the Council of Loathing convened to attempt to impose order on the Kingdom. Their success was limited, however, to imposing their will on adventurers who came to the Kingdom seeking fame, fortune, or quality products at reasonable prices. And as you’ve probably guessed by now, one of those adventurers is you!
You can become one of these wonderfully drawn characters:
So, do you think you have what it takes to find the Naughty Sorceress and vanquish her, saving King Ralph XI and restoring order to the galaxy? Sorry, that’s Star Wars. If so, message me in game and I’ll give you a hand and point you
in the right direction (character #527232). Just mention that you saw this post and good luck!
