Post More Webserver Chat Excerpts

Honestly, most of these are probably just me finding my own jokes funnier than they actually are, but I figure that someone else might find some value in these excerpts anyway.

[09:48] bostock: but yes, i don't argue with design decisions in Halo or Bejeweled
[09:48] bostock: as they don't speak to me
[09:49] bostock: whereas CPB does
[09:49] MITZE: What does it say bostock
[09:49] MITZE: What sweet nothings does it whisper in your ear
[09:50] bostock: i really painted myself into a corner here
[09:50] bostock: i uh

[09:50] MITZE: go on

[20:42] nocheddar: Why are scrolls in the Alchemy Shop and not the book store or magic store? This grinds my gears.
[20:42] Chitlins: scrolls are made by dissolving a book in acid and then precipitating them out of the solution
[20:42] Chitlins: it's an alchemical process
[20:43] nocheddar: Ah, of course. I forgot all about that.

--

[11:29] Gwarl: easy just get instakilled by your patron
[11:29] wobbly: I guess bostock just isn't any good
[11:30] wobbly: it looked like a clear strategic error to me
[11:30] BostocksAlt: just never take damage
[11:30] cobalt: staying within reach of a god is strategic error?

--

[11:34] BostocksAlt: Takeminata the Thunder breathed frost taking me to 40 health

[21:05] MITZE: ^^^

[11:57] BostocksAlt: Amber blasted
[11:57] MITZE: oh phew
[11:57] MITZE: I thought you died
[11:58] MITZE: Serves you right, you knew the risks of teleporting on a Troika
[11:58] BostocksAlt: do you know
[11:58] BostocksAlt: how
[11:58] BostocksAlt: fucking
[11:58] BostocksAlt: tedious
[11:58] BostocksAlt: never
[11:58] BostocksAlt: teleporting
[11:58] BostocksAlt: is
[11:58] MITZE: Did you know bostock

[11:58] MITZE: that I played the psion fully exploring every level
[11:59] MITZE: Let me tell you about tedium
[11:59] MITZE: let me tell you about it bostock

--

[01:19] malcontent: @bron It looks like you are our best current hope for a defeat of Morgoth in the competition
[01:19] GwarlSucks: "no pressure bro"
[01:24] rodent: only you can save mankind, and elfkind, and hobbitkind, from morgoth's oppression
[01:26] malcontent: Help us Obi Bron Kenobi, you're our only hope

--

[08:39] BostocksAlt: blood feast boosts your damage but you take damage on every hit
[08:39] BostocksAlt: i had it turned on and i was under my HP warning
[08:39] BostocksAlt: and i just wanted to get the last enemies in Old Castle over with
[08:39] BostocksAlt: I started auto-attacking the water trolls
[08:39] BostocksAlt: i died
[08:40] MITZE: Hey
[08:40] MITZE: hey bostock
[08:40] MITZE: does that death make you want to
[08:40] MITZE: slit your wrists

--

[15:43] BostocksAlt: what the hell is chuntering
[15:43] Gwarl: haha
[15:43] Gwarl: as in
[15:43] GwarlSucks: Sounds like a movement verb
[15:43] Gwarl: chuntering from a sedentary position
[15:43] wobbly: sounds like a mix of chunder & stuter
[15:44] BostocksAlt: Combat-Echizen "Because it's time" chunters, 'Tonight, someone dies again…'
[15:44] BostocksAlt: i hate to say it wobbly but your suggestion is working
[15:45] wobbly: grumble monotoniously. move slowly and noisely. actually I think I've seen that in reference to trains
[15:45] BostocksAlt: > move slowly and noisily
[15:46] BostocksAlt: well he does move noisily
[15:46] BostocksAlt: goddammit lagspiked or whatever again
[15:47] GwarlSucks: Server can't handle all the chuntering

--

[12:57] wobbly: also notepad++ was updating itself & I was trying to work out why it was installing nppband
[12:57] MITZE: Because it knows Gwarl isn't gonna put it on here :P
[12:58] rodent: I'm not familiar with notepad++ but if it automatically installs random angbands on your computer I approve of it
[12:58] MITZE: Notepad++: The Official Word Processor of Angband
[12:59] MITZE: For all your *banding needs.

--

[16:52] BostocksAlt: the DEL failure message is my favorite quest failure message
[16:52] BostocksAlt: it's so non-judgmental
[16:52] MITZE: Post it
[16:53] BostocksAlt: The Dark Elven Lords (Morivant) (Level 25): The quest was more than you could handle.
[16:53] MITZE: That almost sounds
[16:53] MITZE: reassuring
[16:54] BostocksAlt: yeah
[16:54] MITZE: like the game's going "there, there, you'll do better next time"
[16:54] Gwarl: I don't react well to that quest ending message
[16:54] Gwarl: I find it impuning upon my honour
[16:54] MITZE: what honor
[16:55] rodent: that message doesn't need to be dramatic like if you fail to save a town from scary horrors
[16:55] Gwarl: the honor of not failing quests with an @ who yet draws breath
[16:55] Gwarl: or unbreath
[16:55] Gwarl: I don't think I've played many nonliving @'s
[16:55] rodent: (Hugo seems to actually want me to nuke towns if we fail to save them from scary horrors)
[16:55] MITZE: Sure you have
[16:56] MITZE: They just don't become unliving until the very end
[17:02] Gwarl: anyway I said nonliving mitze
[17:02] Gwarl: eg I don't frequently play as androids golems or automato
[17:02] MITZE: All @s get resurrected
[17:02] MITZE: why do you think there are so many skeletons and zombies in the dungeon
[17:03] MITZE: most of them are Hugo's
[17:03] BostocksAlt: All @s Go to Heaven
[17:03] BostocksAlt: A Heartwarming Disney Adventure
[17:03] MITZE: No, that's only for ones that manage to kill the J

--

[10:50] BostocksAlt: RFE: change hobbit racial power from create food to spam rockets if you're abloodknight
[10:50] BostocksAlt: with that exact name too
[10:50] BostocksAlt: "Spam Rockets"
[10:51] GwarlSucks: nonono
[10:51] GwarlSucks: "Create Spam"
[10:52] GwarlSucks: it just doesn't say what kind of spam
[10:53] BostocksAlt: Or: You use Spam Rockets. The spam rockets hit the kobold for 0 damage. (After killing the kobold You see here 99 rations of food.

--

[19:03] Melum: suggestion: I can combine multiple skeletons into a grotesque parody of life, in defiance of all the laws of man or God, and then ride it.
[19:03] Hgcwarrior: Sounds like Monday

--

[01:20] Rowan: how much do starting stats matter?
[01:20] SterTE4FCBBoonRLs: a lot, especially if someone forces you at gunpoint to start with 11 con
[01:21] MITZE: Who's forcing you to play roguelikes ster?
[01:21] MITZE: And to what end?
[01:22] MITZE: (yes I know what the actual context is, but the idea of someone holding a gun to your back and forcing you to roguelike is funny)
[01:22] SterTE4FCBBoonRLs: mitze - i know several texans so it's a very real possibility
[01:23] MITZE: Why would they force you to roguelike tho
[01:23] MITZE: Is it a death game
[01:23] MITZE: If you die in the game do you die in real life
[01:23] cobalt: if you die in real life do you die in a game
[01:24] rodent: no unless it's multiplayer and allows player vs. player and someone shows up to kill your @ while you are dead
[01:25] Oneiron: if life were a roguelike, I'd do a much better job at dying than I am right now

--

[20:02] BostocksAlt: Carrying 50.9 pounds (31% capacity).
[20:02] BostocksAlt: rings are silly willies
[20:09] MITZE: I can't believe a ring can carry more than a mage
[20:10] BostocksAlt: ringardium leviosa

--

[13:55] MITZE: Welp, bostock now has the power to pick up things at range
[13:56] BostocksAlt: sadly i have no significant stealth and no way to increase it
[13:57] BostocksAlt: at my leisure
[13:58] MITZE: just easily find ten million rings of archery
[13:59] MITZE: There you go bostock, one down
[13:59] MITZE: Nine million, nine hundred ninety-nine thousand, nine hunred ninety-nine to go
[14:00] BostocksAlt: this is gonna be a long ride back from band camp
[14:01] MITZE: Ninety-nine archery rings on the ground
[14:01] MITZE: Ninety-nine archery rings
[14:01] MITZE: You pick one up, absorb its stuff
[14:01] BostocksAlt:
[14:01] MITZE: Ninety-eight archery rings on the ground

--

[17:05] rodent: at some point I have to nerf weaponmasters and warlocks more thoroughly
[17:06] BostocksAlt: s/have/want/
[17:07] MITZE: bostock: "RFE you not nerf them until I win them all"
[17:07] MITZE: "Then you can nerf them as much as you like"

--

[23:43] Hgcwarrior: what happens when a death sword eats a weapon?
[23:45] MITZE: @Hgcwarrior depending on what the weapon is it might get indigestion or hiltburn

--

[09:38] wobbly: also hi
[09:39] MITZE: hi wobbly
[09:39] BostocksAlt: why hobbly
[09:40] MITZE: 'hobbly' sounds like a trollish butchering of hobbit
[09:41] BostocksAlt: dey're tekken de hobblys to Elgansorr!

--

[16:51] BostocksAlt: lagspike
[16:52] MITZE: Sounds like the name of a randart polearm
[16:53] BostocksAlt: standart polearm
[16:54] BostocksAlt: hit this turn, do damage in ten turns

--

[13:13] BostocksAlt: my favorite potato chips

Post The bostock & MITZE Power Hour*: Part I

It's been six months, time to empty out the chatlog excerpt file again—I've got so many there's too many characters to fit it all in one post here.

*With special guest stars!

[18:48] StNightmaer: The Tattered wight touches you. You feel awkward...
[18:48] StNightmaer: where's the funny angband messages thread at when you need it

--

[13:14] debo: I've fallen pretty far down the learning Unity rabbit hole
[13:14] debo: I've started prototyping Japansil with it
[13:14] debo: I'm tired of servers
...
[13:41] MITZE: Japansil?
[13:42] Melum: regular sil but everyone's name ends with -san
[13:42] Melum: and instead of long swords, katanas.
[13:42] MITZE: That's not how Japanese works
[13:42] Melum: it does if you're a weeb
[13:42] MITZE: Sometimes there's -chan and -kun and even -tan too
[13:43] BostocksUgar: Morgoth-kun
[13:43] MITZE: No, it'd be Morgy-kun
[13:44] debo: I am definitely a weeb
[13:45] Melum: Morgoth-sama!
[13:46] BostocksUgar: notice me Morgoth-senpai!
[13:46] MITZE: That's the exact opposite of what you want in Sil bostock
...
[13:50] MITZE: Anyway what's wrong with the server debo
[13:50] MITZE: Too much lag from where you are?
[14:02] debo: i mean i'm tired of programming servers
[14:02] debo: not using them

--

[07:11] BostocksUgar: i wish i could !? inscribe my tentacles
[07:12] MITZE: Your tentacles are confusing and alarming enough bostock
[07:12] MITZE: They don't need to be moreso
[07:13] BostocksUgar: but it would keep me from accidentally hitting people with them
[07:13] BostocksUgar: stop the violence!
[07:14] wobbly: are you having trouble controlling your tentacles?
[07:14] MITZE: Sounds like you're playing Cthulhu Saves the World
[07:14] MITZE: Yes, that is in fact an actual game
[07:15] StNightmaer: my friend thinks that sounds anime
[07:15] MITZE: It is, yeah
[07:15] MITZE: Well, a western take on anime stuffs, anyway
[07:17] MITZE: Oh wow, there was a prequel game just released before Christmas
[07:17] MITZE: In the side-scrolling JRPG, Cthulhu teams up with Santa Claus’s granddaughter to stop Jack Frost before Christmas is cancelled forever. Along the way he fights Krampus, Mari Lwyd, and other “Christmas League of Evil villains” in turn-based combat. He also builds “R'lyehtionship” levels with his friends.
[07:18] MITZE: That pun is amazing
[07:18] BostocksUgar: that pun is a critical hit to the groan
[07:18] StNightmaer: that pun is fhtagn atrocious
[07:19] BostocksUgar: what a world we live in
[07:19] MITZE: Not gonna lie, if I had a less-terrible computer I'd get the game on the merits of that pun alone

--

[17:23] BostocksUgar: if you're wondering why i'm wielding a thanc instead of sting
[17:24] BostocksUgar: it's because 4 speed is not a lot of speed
[17:24] BostocksUgar: and 3 is even less
[17:25] Oneiron: i've never heard anything so true
[17:25] MITZE: You can wield a one-handed weapon as long as you don't have anything in the other hand or gloves on re: touch attacks right?
[17:25] StNightmaer: that sounds like a good reason to be using sting instead of a thanc
[17:25] BostocksUgar: then i guess we'll have to disagree
[17:25] BostocksUgar: in any case i'm in anti-melee cave so they're both just statsticks
[17:26] MITZE: I disagree bostock
[17:26] MITZE: Also not true
[17:26] MITZE: the 'thanc has an activation
[17:26] MITZE: sting does not
[17:27] BostocksUgar: that doesn't make them not both statsticks, it just means one is a statstick with an activation
[17:27] MITZE: You said "just statsticks"
[17:27] BostocksUgar: you're being pedantic for the sake of it and you know it :P
[17:27] BostocksUgar: and *I* know it
[17:28] MITZE: Yeah, but if I wasn't would it be nearly as fun on here?
[17:28] Oneiron: pedantry is the nectar of human thought

--

[09:49] Gwarl: well
[09:50] Gwarl: japan stole all their culture from china
[09:50] cobalt: lol
[09:50] BostocksUgar: that's why america loves japan
[09:50] BostocksUgar: we stole all our culture from britain
[09:50] BostocksUgar: so we understand
[09:51] MITZE: I'm not sure I would say that bostock
[09:52] BostocksUgar: never let reality get in the way of a silly joke
[09:52] cobalt: japanese culture is only partly from chinese
[09:52] Gwarl: well mitze you didn't get it from the iowa or the sioux
[09:53] MITZE: Yeah but if we stole all our culture from Britain
[09:53] MITZE: what'd we do with it
[09:53] MITZE: I'm not seeing it used right now
...
[10:02] wobbly: didn't America throw the best part of british culture into some harbour or something
[10:02] MITZE: You're right
[10:02] MITZE: must've gone in with the tea

--

[14:53] MITZE: I'm kind of disappointed that Necromancers aren't allowed to learn some weak form of martial arts
[14:53] MITZE: To complement having to keep a hand free for badtouch
[14:54] StNightmaer: would you say that the way necromancer is implemented at the moment is a touch disappointing

--

[10:32] StNightmaer: ok i cant play actual bands anymore
[10:33] BostocksUgar: "i've never had a losing streak in any roguelike before sil" - ster, probably
[10:33] rodent: although I do seem to recall him filling the chat with thrall deaths before
[10:34] StNightmaer: even when i first posted that it was sarcastic
[10:34] BostocksUgar: luckily sarcasm is never hard to discern on the internet
[10:34] rodent: yes, that is very fortunate

--

[20:32] StNightmaer: did you really find ringil on a pacifist
[20:33] SweetVinegar: yes
[20:33] StNightmaer: is it not a pacifist now because you have ringil
[20:33] SweetVinegar: no?
[20:33] StNightmaer: yeah guess that stat line answers that
[20:33] MITZE: Melt it down
[20:33] MITZE: for me
[20:34] MITZE: Ringil only ever naturally drops for characters that build for something else, it's what it deserves

--

[22:52] Deathspell: hagen didnt drop his spear so i lost
[22:59] StNightmaer: ok mitze

--

[18:38] MITZE: Does Death Ray work against uniques in Henglikes?
[18:45] StNightmaer: No
[18:46] StNightmaer: Or rather it works at an obnoxiously low chance
[18:46] StNightmaer: Not 1/666 slightly lower
[18:47] MITZE: oh boy
[18:47] MITZE: Maledict curses have a 1 in 666 chance of invoking Death Ray starting at CL41
[18:48] rodent: maybe if you play your cards right you can get the combined probability sufficiently close to 1 in 1,000,000

--

[22:32] MITZE: "Be warned, this level is guarded by 19 Nether hounds!"
[22:32] MITZE: Oh noes
[22:32] petemack: Do you have rNether?
[22:32] MITZE: I have x2 rNether
[22:33] MITZE: and I can one round one if I hit good
[22:33] MITZE: This quest
[22:33] MITZE: is not threatening
[22:33] MITZE: Good thing I dived after I said I shouldn't
[22:35] MITZE: uh oh
[22:35] MITZE: Dwar
[22:35] MITZE: the most :3 ringwraith
[22:36] rodent: good thing the quest is not threatening
[22:37] wobblt: this level is now guarded by 60 Nether hounds
[22:37] rodent: should I make the count go up when new monsters of the appropriate species appear
[22:37] wobblt: only for Mitze
[22:38] MITZE: "You invoke curse on Dwar, Dog Lord of Waw. He can no longer cast spells!"
[22:38] wobblt: R sounds well balanced
[22:38] petemack: @rodent -- just make the quest monsters secret, and specific.
[22:39] MITZE: "Dwar, Dog Lord of Waw says 'Just you wait until I can cast spells again!'

--

[17:31] MITZE: whoop I never named the character
[17:32] MITZE: Wait no
[17:32] MITZE: this is a perfect opportunity for roleplay
[17:33] MITZE: Walk into the mayor's office under the pretense that I'm a mercenary, bounty hunter, and killer of monsters
[17:33] MITZE: "You can call me . . . bostock"
...
[18:46] MITZE: bostock!
[18:46] BostocksUgar: RAWR I DRAGON
[18:46] BostocksUgar: ONLY NOt
[18:46] MITZE:
[18:47] rodent: mitze named an @ after you
[18:47] BostocksUgar: WHERE IS SAVEFILE
[18:47] MITZE: nightly?
[18:47] BostocksUgar: YES
[18:48] BostocksUgar: WHAT IN GEHENNA WAS DRAGON DOING
[18:48] MITZE: crusading?
[18:48] BostocksUgar: AND LAWING
[18:49] MITZE: @rodent I guess if we need bostock to show in the future we now know that naming an @ after him is the appropriate summoning ritual
[18:49] BostocksUgar: +6 IS NOT A LOT OF SPEED AT LEVEL 30
[18:49] BostocksUgar: ESPECIALLY WITH AN UNGODLY XP MOD
[18:50] rodent: I just finally moved on from +3 speed at CL 44
[18:50] StNightmaer: [to mirror] bostock bostock bostock

--

[18:54] MITZE: I kind of feel that towns generated in battlefield shouldn't actually be open
[18:54] MITZE: They should be rubble or something
[18:55] BostocksUgar: war is hell but it's good for business

--

[06:42] bostock: wtf
[06:43] bostock: shoggoth was just killing on angband 41
[06:43] bostock: chilling*
[06:43] bostock: mistook him for one of the 8675309 other black j's that aren't nyogtha
[06:43] bostock: or a shoggoth
[06:44] MITZE: there's like two
[06:44] MITZE: three if you count black
[06:44] MITZE: black puddings, black oozes, and black
[06:44] bostock: potayto potahto
[06:45] bostock: my number had a 3 in it
[06:45] bostock: that counts

[08:42] chutzpah: is there a fell beast in this game?
[08:44] rodent: they are called winged horrors
[08:45] bostock: there are non-player fell riders
[08:46] bostock: one of them lost his hat
[08:46] bostock: you can't fight them though
[08:46] chutzpah: i thought at least one nazgul was a dungeon boss
[08:47] rodent: yup
[08:47] rodent: bostock was joking
[08:47] bostock: i forgot nazguls could be considered fell riders
[08:47] rodent: (there's a hat of the fell rider which sounds like a nazgul artifact but actually isn't)
[08:47] bostock: or it didn't occur to me really
[08:49] MITZE: RFE: Cap of the Fell Rider makes mounts kick you off 100%
[08:50] bostock:
[08:50] MITZE: I didn't think it was that good a joke!

[06:14] bostock: going for fragile btw
[06:14] MITZE: w h y
[06:14] bostock: it's unwon i think\
[06:14] StNightmaer: yeah fragile is unwon
[06:14] MITZE: No, not "why fragile"
[06:14] bostock: it's also in my unwon personalities
[06:14] bostock: my own*
[06:14] MITZE: "why fragile on a Q, which is a pet class which you hate)
[06:14] MITZE: s/)/"
[06:15] StNightmaer: i think clouded progressed with it and i got a mage to cl40 i think? and died to a ddoor fail bringing me next to vecna's escort
[06:15] bostock: summoning is one of the very few things unaffected by fragile
[06:15] MITZE: I bet that changes directly because of this character
[06:15] MITZE: either during or directly after
[06:15] StNightmaer: and i think the ddoor fail was because i blindly ddoored as brand and a death scythe were in LoS of my recall
[06:16] MITZE: We'll know who to blame
...
[06:36] bostock: aha summoning itself isn't exempt
[06:36] bostock: makes sense
[06:36] bostock: (though sitting around and letting your summons kill things is exempt, and that's the important bit)
[06:36] MITZE: Man rodent works quick
[06:36] bostock:

[09:12] wobbly: getting quad breathed by a basilisk seems risky
[09:13] StNightmaer: Slow -19
[09:13] bostock: yeah i'm going to lose this
[09:13] StNightmaer: TO it and try and get it out of aggro range?
[09:13] StNightmaer: not gonna really work
[09:14] StNightmaer: yeah would be better if you could walk around or something, rip
[09:14] wobbly: no fame for you
[09:14] bostock: oh well, coffee dungeon is a giant loot machine anyway
[09:14] bostock: but my honor
[09:15] MITZE: You have no honor bostock
[09:16] MITZE: I know this for a fact, because I know you play with virtues off
[09:16] wobbly: this might help
[09:16] wobbly: http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthr...?t=9385&page=2
[09:16] MITZE: That's a link to the virtues thread isn't it
[09:16] wobbly: of course not...
[09:17] wobbly: its incomplete though. The author is clearly not diligent enough

--

[10:11] StNightmaer: Watch out monsters, my next successful melee attack will confuse! Who knows when that will be....
[10:11] StNightmaer: maybe you can get dispelled, just stand in los of a dispeller. easily
[10:13] StNightmaer: mushrooms don't dispel
[10:14] StNightmaer: that sounds like something that should go on a bad ideas thread on the forum
[10:14] wobbly: bring back the old non-glowy mushrooms
[10:18] bostock: i have played variants with non glowy mushrooms before
[10:18] bostock: it brought me a deep understanding of how people are driven to suicide

--

[13:48] bostock: ultimately
[13:48] bostock: do what you want
[13:48] bostock: and other people will do what they want
[13:48] bostock: and everybody will be happy
[13:48] GwarlSucks: That's a false statement and you know it
[13:49] wobbly: I'll be unhappy
[13:49] bostock: except MITZE yeah
[13:49] bostock: ok, MITZE and wobbly
[13:49] bostock: anybody else want to raise their hands

--

[17:27] bostock: btw it's considerate of you MITZE to make sure gwarl's name is always sung on here even when he's not here
[17:29] GwarlSucks: TBH I've been tempted to make another alt because it's an old joke and I don't want to be mistaken for actually hating on Gwarl
[17:29] GwarlSucks: but I also don't want to be one of the people who have a multitude of alts
[17:29] GwarlSucks: the current group is hard enough to keep track of
[17:29] bostock: *glares meaningfully*
[17:33] Philip: I think I have one alt by accident that I don't use
[17:39] rodent: even wobbly has alts
[17:41] GwarlSucks: Really it's just that I don't like creating new accounts or whatever for things on principal
[17:41] GwarlSucks: "ugh one more username and password to try and not forget"
[17:41] bostock: halfling slinger down
[17:41] bostock: the arena will never be the same
[17:41] GwarlSucks: can't believe bostock killed himself
[17:42] Quirk: I should make some alts
[17:42] GwarlSucks: you were making progress too
[17:42] Quirk: I should have an alt who logs on just to ask Hugo a million questions
[17:42] GwarlSucks:

[20:06] rodent was killed by an Elder fire giant
[20:06] rodent: "there's an elder fire giant approaching, better quaff !speed before it trickshots me"
[20:06] rodent: *quaffs speed
[20:06] rodent: *elder fire giant trickshots me

--

[02:41] Deathspell: i got hammerhand
[02:42] MITZE: You might want to see a doctor about that
[02:42] MITZE: Maybe a mechanic
[02:42] bostock: everybody's a joker i tell ya

--

[22:25] bostock: suicided and took nimble
[22:25] MITZE: boooo
[22:25] MITZE: ...didn't you just do nimble?
[22:26] bostock: nah chaotic
[22:26] MITZE: Not with golem
[22:26] MITZE: before that
[22:26] bostock: in fact i had telepathy for most of the game from nurgle
[22:26] MITZE: I swear you did nimble within the past few runs
[22:26] bostock: lemme check
[22:27] rodent: the nimble was a whole 2 days ago
[22:27] rodent: or 2 wins ago in bostock terms

--

[09:29] bostock: actually i'm surprised you didn't latch onto my saying "unless you really want telepathy" like you ever wouldn't want telepathy
[09:29] bostock: except the staves are a thing
[09:29] MITZE: I've already said that I don't use the staves
[09:30] bostock: why mitze
[09:30] bostock: why
[09:30] bostock: and i don't remember your having said that
[09:30] bostock: probably to save my sanity
[09:30] MITZE: I'll use equipment and try and fit it in that way, but I won't compromise resists and such for it
[09:31] MITZE: and the why is because I'm probably already carrying -detection, and one means of detecting enemies is plenty
[09:31] MITZE: mah pack slots
[09:32] MITZE: how am I gonna carry all the loot bostock
[09:32] MITZE: That slot I save on Telepathy could easily be another randart I won't use!
[09:32] bostock: without telepathy i would be more scareder than i already am
[09:33] bostock: in pos-r i would want it even more, optelepathy
[09:33] MITZE: Oh yeah, I guess R does still have OP tele
[09:33] MITZE: Though you could have it in Frog too
[09:33] MITZE: it is
[09:33] MITZE: An Option
[09:34] bostock: true true
[09:36] bostock: i tend to keep default outside of things i really care about (so, selling and mimics), although I keep comp mode a lot even though i don't care that much
[09:36] bostock: especially of late since i'm doing so many monster races where it doesn't matter
[09:36] MITZE: I tend to set things to whatever is most obnoxious without being straight up challenge mode
[09:37] bostock:
[09:37] bostock: good to know i'm not chatting with a mitze impersonator

[14:44] BostocksUgar: gerard is gaining pips rather than losing them
[14:44] BostocksUgar: i need a plan but i have no plan
[14:44] BostocksUgar: he lost them to archerizing
[14:44] BostocksUgar: from deep water
[14:44] rodent: kill him
[14:44] BostocksUgar: that plan needs subpoints
[14:46] MITZE: There's a Angband Webcomic joke to be made here but I'm not sure what it is

--

[10:52] BostocksUgar: whoa lucky Lucky drop
...
[10:56] BostocksUgar: Incanus get
[10:56] BostocksUgar: now i shall be the mightiest of spellcasters
[10:57] MITZE: Did you mean Incanus was the lucky lucky drop?
[10:57] BostocksUgar: no, darklamp
[10:57] BostocksUgar: {terrible} but pretty good
...
[11:00] BostocksUgar: Activation: Clairvoyance
[11:00] BostocksUgar: real funny mr. darklamp

--

[03:24] MITZE: uh
[03:24] MITZE: hrm
[03:25] MITZE: I think I might've just death ray'd an amberite to death
[03:25] MITZE: Bleys had 6* left
[03:26] MITZE: "You invoke a great curse on Bleys, Master of Manipulation. He is unaffected! He resists. He is unaffected! Space warps about it! It shouts, 'AAAARRRGGGHHH!!!' That was very harmonious. Your sense of justice is impressive. It dies. Hand of death reaches for Bleys, Master of Manipulation!"
[03:27] MITZE: He's definitely dead
[03:28] MITZE: If that was a death ray unique kill
[03:28] MITZE: That would be two 1 in 666 rolls I got
[03:28] MITZE: Too bad I already killed Smeagol
[03:32] MITZE: Bleys apparently has 5000 HP
[03:33] MITZE: So, around 3000 at 6*
[03:33] MITZE: I don't think I could've one shot him any other way than a lucky death ray
[03:37] MITZE: Yeah, "Hand of death reaches" is the message for rolling a death ray
[03:37] MITZE: Drat, I really probably did off a unique with a randomly rolled death ray
[03:37] MITZE: cool
[03:49] rodent: go mitze
[03:49] rodent: two 1 in 666s is very nice
[03:49] rodent: now easily get the spear from hagen
[03:56] MITZE: Well, rolling the Death Ray isn't that unlikely comparatively
[03:56] MITZE: You get 14 rolls for effects with max cursequipment
[03:59] MITZE: I did the math, chance of rolling a death ray is about 2%
[04:00] MITZE: (Chance of rolling the unique kill after getting a death ray is about 0.003%
[04:00] MITZE: )
...
[04:15] Nemo: @MITZE Can you do the math on gettng Narya at turn 5301 (DL3, CL8) in Vanilla?
[04:16] MITZE: 1000000:1
[04:17] bostock: i bet you didn't actually do the math
[04:17] bostock: you're a fraud MITZE
[04:17] bostock: a fraud!
[04:20] MITZE: But you can't prove it
[04:20] MITZE: You'd have to do the math yourself to do that
[04:23] rodent: I'm not sure there'd be any way to really do the math except empirically by generating 1,000,000 DL3s and see how many times Narya shows up
[04:23] MITZE: I bet it would show up only once

--

[04:27] MITZE: Was reminded of something while adding to the chat log excerpts
[04:28] MITZE: bostock: You complained about me not carrying Telepathy
[04:28] bostock: not so much complained as marveled
[04:28] bostock: what's up?
[04:28] MITZE: I'm approaching DL70, and still am not using a source of telepathy
[04:29] rodent: well you are a maledict
[04:29] rodent: a tonberry maledict
[04:29] bostock: and MITZE
[04:29] MITZE: I have staves and several pieces of equipment
[04:29] bostock: and therefore very well ground up
[04:29] MITZE: no telepathy
[04:29] bostock: ok
[04:29] MITZE: Actually that's not quite true
[04:29] bostock: i continue to marvel
[04:29] MITZE: I have ~oTP from Sting
[04:30] bostock: though if you detect nonstop a) you are very patient and b) it's a partial replacement
[04:30] rodent: you're also in arena which is one of the less tele-needy places (especially if you can't be one-shot)
[04:31] bostock: ~oTP
[04:31] bostock: Detect One True Pairing
[04:31] MITZE: It's not BakuDeku, I can tell you that much
[04:31] MITZE: nor IzuOcha
[04:31] MITZE: anyone who wants to argue those can fite me
[04:32] MITZE: wait no
[04:32] bostock: ...of course these are my hero academia things
[04:32] MITZE: Not BakuDeku or Kacchako
[04:32] bostock: of course
[04:32] MITZE: IzuOcha is alright

MITZE is on a distinguished road
Post The bostock & MITZE Power Hour: Part II

[07:02] Deathspell: u cant progress your character in anyway even in rp
[07:03] Deathspell: and theres no virtues
[07:03] wobbly: lame
[07:05] bostock: i progress without virtues
[07:05] bostock: i must be a bigger pro than i thought
[07:05] MITZE: That isn't very harmonious!
[07:06] Deathspell: yeah this game u dont even need virtues if you want to progress
[07:06] Deathspell: but the option still open
[07:10] bostock: jesus how many midgame uniques am i gonna hafta kill on this level
[07:10] MITZE: All of them
[07:11] bostock: the bat will summon kavlax i bet
[07:11] MITZE: They heard you talking smack about virtues
[07:12] Deathspell: bostock why you play without them
[07:12] bostock: i don't enjoy them at all
[07:13] Deathspell: i dont know what they really do except i always have -1% on spells
[07:13] bostock: shelob was summoned just to mock my lack of rdark i think
[07:13] MITZE: I think the conclusion we came to before is that bostock has a low tolerance for bullshit
[07:13] MITZE: Hence no virtues and easy mimics
[07:14] MITZE: Well, there's a topic some asshole was descibing them in detail in on oook
[07:15] MITZE: They haven't updated in a bit though
[07:15] Deathspell: wow whatd he do
[07:15] bostock: describing virtues in detail is not the actions of an asshole
[07:15] bostock: you are maligning this fellow, MITZE

--

[20:06] bostock: You have a Pair of Dragon Boots of the Sprite [5,+10] (+2) {99% off, Sp;AcPoLiNtSh;Lv} (z).
[20:06] bostock: will probably stick with Shiva's though
[20:06] MITZE: Meleed Master Tonberry
[20:07] MITZE: foolishly, yet I won
[20:07] MITZE: Just eaily find Feanor
...
[20:18] MITZE: well uh
[20:18] MITZE: hrm
[20:19] MITZE: The Set of Gauntlets of the Master Tonberry (+10,+100) [2,+0] (+2) {StCn;-Sp;-Cf;DiTi;Fa(StCn}
[20:20] bostock: lol
[20:20] MITZE: I guess I got it as a racial boss thing
[20:20] MITZE: maybe???
[20:20] bostock: that uh
[20:20] MITZE: BTW that also has -2.00 blows
[20:20] bostock: looks good all the same?
[20:20] MITZE: It doesn't reflect from the flags abbreviations
[20:21] MITZE: TBH I think this might actually reduce my damage
[20:21] MITZE: I'll check in a second
[20:23] bostock: You identify The Pair of Hard Leather Boots of Feanor [3,+20] {?}.
[20:23] MITZE: 1011/1035 Normal/Evil vs. 1078/1094 Normal/Evil
[20:23] MITZE: nice
[20:23] bostock: ok i did as you asked
[20:23] MITZE: Also nice, it actually raised my damage
[20:23] MITZE: I'm still not sure I want to equip it
[20:24] MITZE: I already have innate vConf
[20:24] MITZE: 266 total to-dam lol
[20:29] MITZE: Dualwielding Sting and Excalibur Jr.:
[20:29] MITZE: 650+558/574
[20:30] MITZE: Singlewielding Silver Chariot:
[20:30] MITZE: 1230/1266
[20:31] MITZE: If I can find Quickthorn...
[20:33] MITZE: What's J's AC?
[20:33] MITZE: 175? 200?
[20:34] bostock: 175
[20:34] bostock: in frog
[20:34] MITZE: Yeah, was just looking on nikheizen
[20:34] MITZE: 71% hit vs. 175 AC
[20:34] MITZE: (with Silver Chariot)
[20:36] MITZE: wait a second
[20:36] MITZE: hold it hold it hold it
[20:36] MITZE: bostock
[20:36] MITZE: guess what tonberry gloves do
[20:37] bostock: i give up
[20:37] bostock: what
[20:37] MITZE: That damage
[20:37] MITZE: also goes to archery
[20:37] bostock: hahaha
[20:37] bostock: that's nuts
[20:38] HugoV5: to archery, cool
[20:38] MITZE: My damage goes from 235/340 to 345/500
[20:39] MITZE: This is some bullshit right here
[20:39] MITZE: Imagine this on an archer character
[20:39] HugoV5: Before now, I never knew the Tonberry gloves offered an archery damage bonus
[20:40] MITZE: What's good endgame bow damage bostock?
[20:40] MITZE: I feel like that's in my reach with this
[20:41] bostock: sufficient or actually good?
[20:41] bostock: sufficient 400
[20:41] bostock: or maybe 350
[20:41] bostock: good 500
[20:41] MITZE: So you're telling me I'm basically there with tonberry gloves
[20:42] MITZE: that's bullshit
[20:42] bostock: right
[20:42] MITZE: these gloves are bullshit
[20:42] bostock: game balance?
[20:42] bostock: what is this...
[20:42] bostock: game?
[20:42] bostock: balance?

[18:57] TheMan was killed by a Culverin
[18:57] TheMan: fuckin rng
[18:58] TheMan: ohhh well that was less than an hour heh
[18:58] MITZE: Would you say that the RNG
[18:58] MITZE: is sticking it to TheMan

--

[21:38] Moignus: you looking for the one ring to rule them all?
[21:38] Deathspell: no its impossible to find
[21:39] Deathspell: i need vilya
[21:40] Eriloth: I've only found it twice in Angband.
[21:41] MITZE: Deathspell you're a filthy liar
[21:41] Deathspell: how
[21:41] MITZE: You've found The One more than anyone else here
[21:41] MITZE: Don't you go saying "it's impossible to find"
[21:41] Eriloth: Maybe he doesn't think the effort to look for it is worthwhile
[21:42] Eriloth: I'd honestly rather find the Soft Leather Boots of Feanor, since those give +15 speed
[21:42] Deathspell: with luck ive foudn it i dont try to seek it out anymore
[21:42] Eriloth: Or is it Hard Leather Boots? I've only found them once
[21:42] MITZE: Hard
[21:43] MITZE: Deathspell has also easily found PDSM I believe
[21:43] Eriloth: point is they're the Jordans of roguelikes
[21:43] MITZE: We need Marty McFly's Air Jordans or whatever as an art
[21:43] Deathspell: my yung gamers in the cut
[21:43] Deathspell: take you out for some feanors
[21:44] Eriloth: With the ithildin trim
...two days later...
[19:32] Deathspell: You see The Ring of Power (The One Ring) (+5) {cursed, SpStInWiDxCnCh;*AcElFiCo;SiRgAgTyWm|AEFCo~UL(StInW iDxCnCh? A:Something Weird}.
[19:32] Deathspell: souran actully dropped it

[19:19] DavidMedley: OK. I'm pledging no YASDs on this @. Who wants to be my accountability partner?
[19:20] MITZE: Don't worry, we'll all chip in to shame you if you die
[19:20] DavidMedley: lol
[19:22] DavidMedley: Maybe if I narrate my actions out loud. For example, "I'm going to go back into that spider/scorpion pit that I know has mediocre loot." Maybe something in my brain will take note.
[19:25] MITZE: No, that's just going to encourage us to encourage you to make bad decisions
[19:26] DavidMedley: @MITZE you're the best
[19:26] MITZE: bostock would probably bed to differ
[19:26] MITZE: also Gwarl
[19:26] BostocksAlt: whom would i bed
[19:26] MITZE: *beg to differ
[19:26] MITZE: damn it
[19:27] DavidMedley: differ? I don't ever know her!
[19:28] MITZE: Also David I'm putting it in with the chat log excerpts
[19:28] MITZE: If you die it'll be preserved for the internet that you died after you said you would not
[19:29] MITZE: don't die imo
[19:29] DavidMedley: OK that's fair
[19:29] DavidMedley: Though I said I wouldn't die a *stupid* death. Smart death OK.
[19:30] MITZE: You're playing a rogulike
[19:30] MITZE: Every death is a YASD
...a week or so later...
[23:28] DavidMedley: noooooo... not supposed to be able to do that much damage!!
[23:28] DavidMedley: ooooohhhh
[23:28] DavidMedley: Didn't see all the things it could breathe
[23:28] DavidMedley: oh man
[23:32] DavidMedley was killed by a winged horror

[19:44] BostocksAlt: mitze
[19:44] BostocksAlt: you were right and i was wrong
[19:44] BostocksAlt: i just lost bubo
[19:44] BostocksAlt: like
[19:44] BostocksAlt: it's gone
[19:45] BostocksAlt: i dropped it, picked up a potion of enlightenment, went downstairs, quaffed it, went upstairs, and bubo is gone
[19:47] BostocksAlt: not downstairs either
[19:47] MITZE: RIP Bubo D:
[19:47] BostocksAlt: boo hubo
[19:47] MITZE: I think the problem is that IDed standarts disappear if you leave the level
[19:47] BostocksAlt: but they normally don't
[19:47] BostocksAlt: there has to be an additional condition
[19:47] MITZE: no no
[19:47] BostocksAlt: really
[19:48] BostocksAlt: i pinky swear
[19:48] MITZE: Think of it like it's still V
[19:48] BostocksAlt: i shall fight you to the death before doing that
[19:48] BostocksAlt: tell you what i'll test with some crap standart
[19:48] StNightmaer: i don't know how it happens but i have seen it happen
[19:49] BostocksAlt: once i find a crap standart
[19:49] MITZE: It happens if you ID it, I think
[19:49] BostocksAlt: unlike bubo
[19:49] BostocksAlt: *sob*
[19:49] BostocksAlt: i almost never don't-ID things though
[19:49] MITZE: (I have only my gut instinct on it)
[19:49] BostocksAlt: i'd have to be out of charges and in a hurry or w/e
[19:49] MITZE: Like
[19:50] MITZE: In V, with preserve mode on
[19:50] MITZE: Standarts can regenerate, *as long as you don't ID them*
[19:50] BostocksAlt: yeah but permalevels
[19:50] MITZE: this was done because otherwise you could never skip a vault
[19:50] MITZE: yeah, but the code of it is probably still there
[19:50] BostocksAlt: yeah that's clear
[19:50] BostocksAlt: (about vaultskip)
[19:51] MITZE: and was never touched since them
[19:57] MITZE: also bostock
[19:57] MITZE: I warned you
[19:57] MITZE: I told you dog
[19:57] MITZE: I warned you about the stairs bro
[19:58] BostocksAlt: that has a homestuck vibe to it
[19:58] BostocksAlt: don't make me read homestuck
[19:58] BostocksAlt: i've made it this far
[19:59] MITZE: You would be right
[19:59] MITZE: Relax, I didn't read it in full
[19:59] MITZE: Like most things it was sort of funny at first
[20:00] MITZE: but then the fandom ruined it
[20:00] MITZE: (also it got stupid complicated like so many other long stories)
[20:00] BostocksAlt: yeah that happened real fast for me
[20:00] BostocksAlt: i confess i actually did read homestuck
[20:00] BostocksAlt: but
[20:01] BostocksAlt: my dumbness saved me

[12:01] rodent: @MITZE: should I even allow adding the slow regen curse or is it so horribly bad that there's no point to allowing it?
[12:02] MITZE: I used it at first, purely for maxing cursepower, but once I could max that without using it I did
[12:02] MITZE: I would not be surprised if people opted to not use it, period
[12:04] StNightmaer: slow regen shouldn't even be an option because that means someone might use it
[12:04] MITZE: Are you that someone ster
[12:04] StNightmaer: No
[12:04] MITZE: rodent you should add slowRegen to spite ster
[12:06] StNightmaer: i trust rodent to make mummies weak in an interesting way
[12:07] StNightmaer: instead of involving the regen curse
[12:07] MITZE: "Time to makes zombies have innate slow regen"
[12:08] MITZE: "because they're fucking undead and rotting"
[12:08] MITZE: "reaching mummy evo removes it, as you are preserved then"

[16:09] rodent: should I die trying to get the loot or go home with no loot
[16:10] GwarlSucks: You know what I'd suggest
[16:10] GwarlSucks: and it's not the smart choice
[16:10] rodent: is it the gwarl choice

--

[16:46] Gwarl: hi
[16:46] Gwarl: what does everyone want me to do most
[16:46] Gwarl: site-wise
[16:47] Gwarl: which thing can I focus on
[16:47] Gwarl: I want to try and do something this weekend
[16:50] GwarlSucks: I believe someone wanted you to please give them full monster memory in V
[16:50] GwarlSucks: nikheizen, maybe? @nikheizen
[16:50] nikheizen: That was me, yes.
[16:51] GwarlSucks: I would of course like to see NPP on here, and bostock would too I think would it be that he was around lately
[16:51] Gwarl: okay
[16:52] Gwarl: adda feature to let people give themselves full monster memory in V
[16:52] Gwarl: I'll do your now nikh
[16:52] Gwarl: oh god NPP
[16:52] Gwarl: it needs hacking
[16:52] GwarlSucks: Don't stress youself, I'm probably the only one who cares on here rn
[16:53] Gwarl: you just said bostock cared
[16:53] GwarlSucks: bostock has not been seen for a few weeks
[16:53] Gwarl: oh no
[16:53] GwarlSucks: I think (hope) that he's just caught up on work
[16:53] Gwarl: not bostock
[16:54] Gwarl: yeah hopefully
[16:54] Gwarl: I am
[16:54] Gwarl: wow
[16:54] nikheizen: If it's by version, I only care about 4.2.0 and nightly
[16:54] Gwarl: how terrible
[16:54] GwarlSucks: He disappeared before to do work
[16:54] Gwarl: to have not I have been away so much I didn't know bostock was away
[16:54] Gwarl: what even was that sentence
[16:55] Gwarl: I think the meaning got through though
[16:55] Gwarl: ah mitze
[16:55] Gwarl: now you are the one with the free time again and I am the one at work again
[16:55] Gwarl: how the tables keep turning
[16:56] Gwarl: have we survived without bostock? it looks like we have which is good
[16:56] GwarlSucks: Yeah, we're holding up
[16:57] rodent: but I need to find my own bugs which sucks
[16:57] GwarlSucks: rodent did a big update to Frog, including new dungeons and monster races
[16:57] Gwarl: yeah wow
[16:57] Gwarl: i can't even imagine what it must be like to develop a band without bostock playing it obsessively
[16:57] Gwarl: that must be really hard

[18:33] Gwarl: there was a guy who made a horrible excel sheet we had to use into a nice looking html table
[18:33] Gwarl: he is always doing helpful things like that
[18:34] Gwarl: I actually had pre-empted him by already aleritng management to the UI I had developed for navigating the 400+ table breaking entries with a keyword search sidebar
[18:35] Gwarl: so he spent all that time making himself look good just so I could make myself look better
[18:35] Gwarl: except
[18:35] Gwarl: I'm also a problem child
[18:35] Gwarl: some people can be all of one thing and not the other but I always have to be both
[18:35] Gwarl: this makes me impossible to manage I assume
[18:36] GwarlSucks: Can't believe Gwarl's bipolar
[18:36] Gwarl: I'm not bipolar mitze
[18:36] Gwarl: I'm also not not-bipolar
[18:36] Gwarl: do you see?
[18:36] GwarlSucks: He always seemed so balanced on here
[18:37] Gwarl: I'm a union of opposites mitze
[18:37] GwarlSucks: The really funny part is the usernames involved in this conversation right here
[18:38] Quirk: Schrödinger's Gwarl.

[18:40] Quirk: Wait until we colonise Antarctica.
[18:40] DoublePlusUnGood: May as well be mars.
[18:40] Gwarl: umm
[18:41] Gwarl: we don't want to be disturbing the shoggoths
[18:41] Gwarl: IMO
[18:41] Gwarl: far worse than mars
[18:42] Gwarl: also I disagree because resupplying antarctic colonies would be far easier logistically as well as the abundance of natural water and oxygen
[18:42] DoublePlusUnGood: In another thousand years, if Humans have not exterminated the species with war and random stupidity, we will still be talking about how we are going to colonize mars next year.
[18:42] Gwarl: generating heat would be an issue but again oil shipments to antarctica are easier than to mars
[18:45] DoublePlusUnGood: At least Antarctica is on this planet. It takes more than six months to send a billion dollars worth of shit to mars. And that billion dollars equals about five or ten bucks worth of actual useable stuff. Fuck the propaganda. You cannot keep a Human alive off potatos alone. And oxygen is an even more extreme problem.
[18:46] GwarlSucks: generating heat for antarctica colonies probably won't be an issue in a few decades
[18:46] GwarlSucks: for reasons unrelated to shipping feasibility
[18:46] Quirk: send Gwarl down there and a few managers, I think the heat problem could be solved
[18:46] DoublePlusUnGood: It would take less effort to kill off every living thing on any contenint that to colonize Antarctica.

[02:27] StNightmaer: hmm other than that i have "disaster area" in place of dark cave and "a mysterious cave" that doesn't seem to have replaced anything
[02:27] nikheizen: i would love to not have a dark cave lol
[02:27] nikheizen: god this is excruciating
[02:28] GwarlSucks: nikheizen why
[02:28] GwarlSucks: why are you in there
[02:28] GwarlSucks: it's never worth it
[02:28] nikheizen: book 4
[02:29] GwarlSucks: Only ever go in there for completionism
[02:29] nikheizen: but i want book 4 and i want it now
[02:29] nikheizen: *stamps on floor*
[02:29] GwarlSucks: kids these days
[02:29] GwarlSucks: always instant gratification with ya
[02:29] GwarlSucks: i tells ya

HugoV5 frogcomposband nightly 1 Tonberry Chaos-Warrior (Chaos/Hionhurn) in Outpost 30
HugoV frogcomposband nightly 1 Tonberry Chaos-Warrior (Chaos/Hionhurn) in Outpost 90
...
[00:51] GwarlSucks: Hugo plz
[00:51] HugoV: yeah, I know
[00:51] GwarlSucks: Most people are happy to be playing one character at a time
[00:52] HugoV: I alternated rigs to see if something was up
[00:52] GwarlSucks: Why, what would happen if Omni had one game going per alt
[00:52] GwarlSucks: madness, that's what
[00:52] HugoV: ya
[00:52] OmniBeast: I could open a few dozen tabs and play all of my characters at the same time.
[00:53] GwarlSucks: noooo
[00:53] GwarlSucks: see what you did Hugo
[00:53] HugoV: bostock too
[00:53] GwarlSucks: look what you've wrought
[00:53] GwarlSucks: What even happens that many games are going
[00:53] GwarlSucks: Does the game list scroll
[00:53] OmniBeast: I think my current number is 25 accounts.
[00:54] HugoV: Mine is like 7-8
[00:54] GwarlSucks: I think that many games would break the list
[00:54] OmniBeast: One way to find out.
[00:54] OmniBeast: Good idea GS.
[00:54] HugoV: Looks like my 2014 rig has an issue limiting the Hugostyle pace
[00:55] GwarlSucks: *prepares a statement to Gwarl that Omni crashed the server by having too many games open*
[00:55] OmniBeast: *prepares a statement for Gwarl telling him that GwarlSucks made me crash the game.
[00:57] OmniBeast: But I guess I could hire some dumb kids to come around and make accounts just to talkj shit to GwarlSucks and blame him for hiring them all.
...
[01:01] HugoV was killed by poison
[01:01] OmniBeast: GwarlSucks murdered Hugo!
[01:01] GwarlSucks: It had to be done
[01:01] Sacksquatch: u bastard
[01:02] GwarlSucks: I had to stop him before he went too far

[20:54] HugoV5: @rodent Does Asgard have a boss?
[20:54] rodent: yes
[20:54] HugoV5: A new boss?
[20:54] rodent: no I randomly made robin hood the boss of asgard

--

[13:55] MITZE: Can +Md show up on any helms other than Knowledge?
[13:56] rodent: it can in nightly not that I've actually seen +Md on a helm in this game
[13:56] rodent: even on Knowledge...
[13:56] MITZE: 40 Arena victories?
[13:56] MITZE: Did I actually kill the GWoP with this character?
[13:56] wobbly: its on mitze's helm
[13:56] rodent: mitze has +md on everything
[13:56] MITZE: art or ego, rodent?
[13:57] MITZE: (or both)
[13:57] rodent: both (though the art could probably be fairly described as the dogram of knowledge hats)
[13:57] MITZE: Gonna need to remember to go through the options again if/when I get back to this
[13:58] MITZE: 67/76 LR is probably a clearer metric if it uses the full 76, but I'm too used to the old one
[14:00] MITZE: Also rodent it's not true I have +MD on everything
[14:01] MITZE: Still missing it on four rings, my lamp, my cloak, and my quiver
...
[14:13] MITZE: Could I theoretically get a Magi ammy with more than +4 Md or a helm with more than +3
[14:14] MITZE: This is important, I need to know if I can push devicewolf houndlock even further
[14:15] MITZE: I suppose I could get Zeusammy, but I lucked out against him at Olympus and I don't feel like scumming the Ressurection Machine or whatever
[14:22] rodent: I think zeusammy would be the only way to push those further
[14:22] rodent: why do you want more +Md anyway, just so you can say you maxed your +Md?
[14:24] MITZE: Practically, yeah
[14:24] MITZE: About the only things that additional Md actually helps with is the endgame effects
[14:25] MITZE: RestoreMana/Rocket/WallBuilding/ect.
[14:27] MITZE: Yeah, just those three AFAICT
[14:27] queeflord: wolf form is good at lvl 50?
[14:29] rodent: it's okay, whether it's actually good probably depends on build
[14:30] queeflord: going full device good because wolf cant use weapons
[14:30] queeflord: rlly
[14:31] rodent: I'm not sure mitze's actually going full devices, he doesn't need to since he's a houndlock
[14:31] rodent: he's just investing in +Md so... I'm not entirely sure why
[14:31] MITZE: Because I can and because it's funny
[14:31] rodent: good reasons I suppose
[14:32] MITZE: Because rodent made wolf-form be bad at decives and spite is as good a reason as any

[12:34] wobbly: I'm surprised Gwarl doesn't have a MITZESucks account yet
[12:34] GwarlSucks: You're right, he's missing an obvious opportunity
[12:35] DoublePlusUnGood: I could make one if it would ake you feel better?
[12:35] GwarlSucks: It wouldn't be the same unless Gwarl was responsible

--

[09:35] Sacksdorf: yes!
[09:35] Sacksdorf: cringe from my spell failure light!
[09:36] GwarlSucks: It was really bad spellcasting
[09:36] GwarlSucks: it couldn't help it
[09:36] Sacksdorf: eye was like oof, this dude sux
[09:37] GwarlSucks: "Great, another pleb who doesn't know their Leviosuhs from their Leviosahs"
[09:37] wobbly: maybe you just need your spell fails high enough to randomly turn magic missiles into mana storms

--

[10:01] wobbly: You have The Spear "Not for MITZE"
[10:50] Moignus: O.o
[12:10] HugoV5: " The Spear "Not for MITZE" "
[12:11] HugoV5: wow
[12:11] Marty: maybe MITZE complains about not getting Hagen spear?
[12:12] HugoV5: He didn't always complain about Hagen's speak afaik
[12:13] wobbly: Hagen spear never drops for Mitze
[12:16] rodent: yes presumably there was a time when mitze had yet to play poslikes and yet to not-get hagen's spear

--

[00:59] Deathspell: Really buy a Pick of Digging (1d5) (+7,+4) (+7) {25% off, Dg} for 6470 gp? [y/n] => y. You have a Pick of Digging (1d5) (+7,+4) (+7) {25% off, Dg}.
[01:01] Deathspell was killed by a 7-headed hydra
[01:11] wobbly: pick 0 hydra 1
[01:11] Deathspell: dude i was walking to morivant and i tp to scyllas pack lmao
[01:12] GwarlSucks: Really?
[01:12] GwarlSucks: Looks to me like you picked that fight
[01:12] wobbly: Now, now. Don't pick on deathspell
