Who's that guy?
He is of no importance...
But you're reading this, right, so you've got an internet connection, and, I hope, a sense of humour.
What's going on?
Are we not all always looking for manners in which to waste our time whilst upon the Internet. Well, here's one.
That chap pictured above is a character from The Kingdom of Loathing. A free online game of immense loveliness. It's pretty insane, but perhaps saner than reality anyway.
Here's my character:
She's a Spaghetti Sage at the moment. She makes magic happen using her awesome ways with pasta. Her favourite drink is whiskey (at the moment).
What kind of game is this?
A crazy one, but a good one. It's turn based, and you have so many turns you can make each day. You can increase your number of turns by either consuming food, or by drinking alcohol.
At least have a look at the web site: The Kingdom of Loathing.
Stuff has happened and you, adventurer, needs to step in and sort it out.
I don't want to tell you too much. I'd rather you went and found out for yourself. But you'll notice a slight parody of D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) type storylines, kinda going on.
How do you play it?
Over the Internet, in your Internet browser program.
If you do sign up, just don't abuse it, OK? They want to remain free to users. They also have some very interesting looking merchandise.
At least check their page. And remember, the game is a beta version at the moment.
