The Kingdom of Loathing

Kingdom of Loathing... a great game for disillusioned Kings of Chaos players. When KoC went into its second age, it got needlessly complex, and it was never *all* that much fun to begin with.

KoL is awesome! It's wacky, adventurous, and all-around fun. Its only drawback is that you get 40 "Adventures" per day (which rolls over at midnight Eastern) instead of getting a new adventure every half-hour, so you can spend just about 20 minutes per day on each player and you can't come play whenever you want.

There are three KoL "specialties," though each player has some of each of these attributes. Seal Clubbers and Turtle Tamers specialize in Muscle, Pastamancers and Saucerors rely on Magic, and Disco Bandits and Accordion Thieves are most proficient with Moxie. My characters are Ranton the Sauceror and Fargul the Turtle Tamer.

Play it! It's great!

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
