Hehe. So many many things. My foot's in my mouth more often than it's on the ground.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
The newbie comics with Tavernwench, madcowchef and W23!

Pasta for life, baby

My contribution to ColdFront, despite it slipping up a lot lately

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Nothing, really. I've had a pretty good time of it here ;)

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
I don't really do projects per se. I just... go with the flow, and drift towards my goals. Although, 2x 3-Tiered cake in a day was pretty cool =)

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Nothing! I am the champion! See previous answer

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
The community. Purge and cleanse

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?

ForEVAR

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
Some friends from another online forum posted a thread about it, and I got curious. Didn't get hooked right away, but once I did that was it.

2. What is your signature character class?
Sauceror, though I've found that I liked Seal Clubber a lot since ascension as well.

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Hm, not sure I have really accomplished a whole lot so far - mostly just enjoyed the game and community.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Probably poor market investments, LOL. I learned my lesson and just don't do short-term investments anymore. Oh, that and seeming to have a knack for auto-selling large amounts of things just before they suddenly become valuable (I must have sold several thousand cocoa egg fragments the same week the LSE was implemented, and I hesitated putting my extra Hey Deze maps into the mall just one night before that became impossible to do, and the ones that were in the mall skyrocketed. And other things along those same lines).

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
I'd say working on the history updates here. Not sure if that'd be termed ambitious, but it's probably the largest in scope of things that I've done up to now.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Besides bad investments, I'd have to say the Friar's Gate. Don't ever seem to get any RNG love there at all.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
Well, up to a couple of weeks ago, I'd have said the lack of ability to change your email address. But now that you are able to do that, I'm not sure what else I'd change.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
You mean I have to choose?!? :shock:

Probably my top five would be (in no particular order), the Knight in White Satin for the Moody Blues reference, the Leaflet for both the Zork and Ender's Game references, the elves for the Office Space references, and the Singing Tree and Toy Soldier for cleverly juxtaposing both old and new (or old and older, LOL) song references.

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
Primarily, the people. Without the community, I'd probably have lost interest once I'd seen and done everything in the game a couple of times.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
I'm kind of surprised I still am, actually. Not because there's anything not to like about KoL, but because I don't tend to stay interested in any one thing to this level for this long, even when it's this interesting and fun overall. My hobbies tend to run in six- to nine-month cycles, but KoL has outlasted that and I don't see my interest waning anytime soon, if ever.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
Hm, never really thought about it. Maybe a crystal gazing ball of some kind. Given my answer to question four, I think I might need one... :lol:

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
Couple of friends from another site posted about it, I joined and eventually became hooked.

2. What is your signature character class?
Dotts was originally a Turtle Tamer, woohoo!

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Pop Goes The Loathing was a crackpot idea that ended up winning Skully's contest. Loved every minute of working with friends on it and won myself a couple Mr. A's in the process.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Mr. Store items. When I first started, I could have gotten a crimbo elfling, baby yeti and so on. I got two Juniors instead.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
Probably taking the helm of Coldfront.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Market speculation. I do okay with investments, I buy stuff and let it sit, but I'm terrible at when to sell these items.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
I'd like the Gift shop to keep getting even more items, personally.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
I love the few Dark Tower references(and that is the truth) but my absolute favorite is probably the Valley in general.

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
Community + Contest = Me coming back again and again.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
I doubt I will put the game down until I have full Plexiglass and Stainless Steel as well all skills, even then it would require me becoming bored of my friends in the game. Fairly OCD about it all.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
Never really thought about it, but something to do with polka. (Polka-Dotts, hah.)

@Pastaroni: Sure, iffin' you're wanting mine.

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
A mailing list I'm on, DaP, had someone mention it. Weirder is that people I met at camp when I was 13 know people who are now in my clan. Weird.

2. What is your signature character class?
Sauceror. And contrary to popular belief, HotPasta actually refers to a sauce. So yeah, it's right.

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Hitting 2000 in all stats.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Some bartenders-in-the-box?

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
*censored due to seeeekret content*

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
The fact that Jick keeps putting in familars you can only get after ascending. Bastage.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
I could get those ascention familiars with out ascending. Bastage.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
Oh god. There's just so many! My current favorite however is the March Hare. Omg. <3

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
My peeps. Clan chat. The fun in /trade.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
As long as it keeps being fun. Since the fun is mostly due to my lovely lovely clannies, I expect that to be a while

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
A banhammer. I want that. Sooooo bad.

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
BBSpot - he puts up daily links, and KoL was one of them. A bunch of us checked it out, and a few (Borax, Turing, Slashor and I, as far as I know) are still going strong.

2. What is your signature character class?
Disco Bandit, although I've found that Seal Clubbers rock as well. :)

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Hmm... Hitting 200,000 Tasty Fun Good Rice Candies was amazing. However, purchasing my first in-game Mr. Accessory shortly after Black Sunday and without the direct benefit of all that bugmeat was my proudest - raised over 80M meat via /trade and the mall.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
I speculated heavily in pickles and brine after the second Pickle Factory arrived. Shortly afterward, pickles got duped by the thousands. Meh.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
The Clan Warfare upgrade. Even if it never gets implemented, it was a blast to do, and I got to work with some great folks.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
The damned bugbear trophy - I keep getting the gingerbread bugbear instead.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
Ummm, clan warfare? *innocent look* (tm)

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
I still crack up over the 1335 haxz0r. :D

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
The new content, the great community, and an awesome clan.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
As long as I can - it remains fun and interesting, and does a great job of providing accomplishments to feel happy about. I'll probably quit when they pry my keyboard from my cold, dead hands.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
Hmm. I'd probably say a candy-o-copia. Who wants something that keeps disgorging vegetables and healthy foods? This things keeps spilling out Mr. Mediocre bars and rice candies every day. :D

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
A post in the Puzzle Pirates off-topic boards.

2. What is your signature character class?
Disco Bandit.

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Dunno. I've done a lot of little crap.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Chat modding. Among other things, but hey.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
The Loading Dock.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Becoming an economic powerhouse. I've always been an okay trader, but an also-ran. I want to be able to flick my finger and say "Gimme" on a whim, without a second thought.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
Blah. Tard removal would be nice, but that's true in all communities. I'd like to be able to play the mall in HC; I despise multis. I'd like my ideas to be taken seriously, and even if they suck to know that.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
Haha, my memory for this is so fickle. I'm rather fond of the ice sickle and the engineer in the cola wars though. Also the wheel in the clouds in the sky.

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
Cool people. Also OCD.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
Until I don't anymore. Seriously, I have no idea how to answer that question. I tend to leave games because I'm out of goals or interest. Since I want all the HP skills, a while.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
I haven't a clue. I occasionally think of cool ideas, but they're all for other people. I have been lusting after the banhammer Hotpasta mentioned for a long time, though.

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
I think I saw a review of it on another site and was promised pop culture humor with minimum gamer knowledge needed. I knew it was for me.

2. What is your signature character class?
Accordian Thief all the way.

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
I like doing Heart-y things, so clan projects, being a Mod, and helping to organize a large meet are all highlights to me.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
I fail at playing the market. Utterly fail.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
Working on revitalizing /c newbie
/c newbie Poor newbie, such the scapegoat of the chat family.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Did I mention the market? I did? Ok then, I also suck at understanding game mechanics.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
More in game instruction. I love the Toot stuff.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
I have always liked the text for the flock of stab bats, and the BASIC elemental makes me giggle because it is the only computer joke I get!

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
The people, the community.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
How long do I have?

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
A Frosty Beer mug that works like a mini Ode to Booze when equipped, but I would rather it was dropped in the tavern so everyone could have it. He could make it come from the TavernWench ;) OOh! it would make hardcore easier :P

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
My IRL gaming group wouldn't shut up about it, so I joined to participate in conversations. =)

2. What is your signature character class?
Probably Disco Bandit, as that's my original, and in my custom avatar, but I feel more personal affinity with a Seal Clubber, nowadays.

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
I briefly had the most complete collection of booze in the entire Kingdom. (*shakes fist in mock rage at HoS*)

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
What hasn't? =)

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
The booze collection. Probably. I don't do -truly- ambitious projects, really.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Pretty much the booze collection again. Anything else I either wait, and eventually get, or don't want, etc.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
I dunno. Right now, it seems alright by me.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
Right now? Fake Hand. Hot Damn I loves me some Fake Hand. =)

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
People mainly. Also obsession, compulsion, and disorder. =)

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
I probably won't stop before it does.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?[/quote]
A straitjacket with Moth wings. That sounds hella cool. =)

Hey, if anyone's interested in their 11 Q's to be published, edit their post to let me know. Also, the more detail you can provide, the better. It always helps in letting the community get to know you better.

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
Tiny Fluffy. Now I can't stop, no matter how inactive I am. I like to play just enough that Gina would feel bad kicking me out, but not so much that I actually have to do any work. ;)

2. What is your signature character class?
Seal Clubber. God, I hates me some seals!

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Not getting kicked out of Warehouse 23.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Heh. Well, nothing, really. I haven't attempted anything too major. If you never try, you cannot fail, though there was a certain project that I prefer not to talk about. If nothing else, at least I am smart enough to abandon projects BEFORE I get too personally involved, when I know they'll explode sooner or later.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
Making CurryHole marry me. Success!

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
I've tried to make meat. Honest. I'm just not good at it. I don't even try anymore. I'm a horrible trader in this game, for some reason. Bad speculation, poor decisions... so now I've given it up and rely on the kindess of strangers. Or I just don't have stuff. That works out pretty well for me, too.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
I would make a magic program that would cause the computers of idiots in chat (mainly newbie) to explode.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
The quiet healer fight cracks me up. Why? I do not know. But it does. The first time I saw it, I actually called one of my friends, and she promptly proceeded to not really care, but still... I love it. Hard.

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
Well, it's one night on and five nights off at this point, but the people. I have the best clannies EVAR! Even the ones I don't know yet, because I'm an asshole.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
Don't know.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
SMARMALADE. For my toast. It's important. I need it. Or a bunch of shame gravy.

1. How did you first discover the Kingdom of Loathing?
The now sadly defunct Little Fluffy Industries.

2. What is your signature character class?
Pastamancer - I likes to cookz, likes to eatz!

3. What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
In KoL, completeing my chowm ein project just before ascension rolled out for my clan (I cooked somewhere around 5000 chow meins for the stash).

IRL, keeping my son alive for nearly three years striaght.

4. What, if anything, has blown up in your face?
Less "blown up" and more "fizzled"... I have a KoL-themed comic script I wrote that I have been trying to get drawn by a clanmate for almost 6 months now. It is currently with artist #3.

5. What has been your most ambitious project to date?
See chow meins above.

6. What aspect of KoL has thwarted you at every turn?
Spading. I suck at it, as much as one can possibly suck at it. And a bit more.

7. What is the one thing you would change about KoL if you could?
Make the tattos work like familiars, i.e. display one in your profile screen, allow people to click it and see the rest of your ink, diable that ability if desired.

8. What is your favorite joke or reference in KoL?
Effect: Beaten up - "You have had the crap beaten out of you. You're going to need more crap."

9. What brings you back to KoL night after night?
The humour, the gameplay, and the peeps.

10. How long do you think you will keep playing?
Until I die, baby. Until I die.

11. You get to have a Jick-made custom item. What is it?
A familiar who is a smaller version of me. I would name him the Danieling, and he would block attacks by telling the monster stories about ducks and fireworks.
