Frozen tendies? Microwaved frozen chicken strips? I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit!

Defund Jodie Foster too! Problem solved!

I say we should add Monday to the weekend and then also have a mid-week break with Wednesday and Thursday off.

Unless he realized she wasn’t interested and left her alone after that! That’s the normal, healthy thing to do!

I think this is why a lot of sites stopped using it!

SNES controller likely couldn’t fit that way due to the shoulder buttons.

Yeah can you imagine what it would be like if Elon and Donnie were immortal? Yikes!

Yeah this is actually a few less than the number of upgrades you can get (without RoW farm).

By default you find 15 upgrade scrolls in the dungeon. You can find +2 armour and a +2 wand. Troll blacksmith can upgrade your armour +2 to +4 with two reforge rewards and also upgrade another item by +1 if it’s at +1 or lower. If you use that last one to bring your mage staff up to +1 and then you can imbue the +2 wand you found to get a +3 staff of that wand type. Throw the 15 SoU on it and you now have a +18 staff. Thus you can end up with +18 staff, +4 armour, and whatever rings you find (+3 from imp).

As for artifacts: none of them can take upgrade scrolls. They each upgrade using their own unique mini-quest.

Funnily enough, Rogue isn’t the first. That honour belongs to the obscure game Beneath Apple Manor.

Sil is a roguelike with a built-in tutorial. It teaches you the basics of the game but leaves the vast majority for you to figure out yourself. It’s far more difficult than SPD (the only Pixel Dungeon variant I’ve played).

Ahhh I hate cave spinners. You have to spot them at a distance before they throw their web and then have a plan to deal with them. Knocking them into pits with chains or blast wave is ideal. Otherwise you wanna take them out at range. Step sideways when they see you so their web throw goes to that side, then hit them with all the ranged weapons and wands you got. Antimagic is tough though!

Perhaps Mikhail Khodorkovsky. I’m sure he managed to squirrel away some of his wealth and now lives comfortably in exile, albeit with a huge bullseye on his back. But if your standard is “lose 100% of their wealth” then that almost never happens to anyone, even working class people who declare bankruptcy due to overwhelming debts.

Does Muammar Gaddafi count? He lived like a king with an anime-style cadre of elite female bodyguards, being essentially the emperor of Libya. He died after some soldiers dragged him out of a ditch and summarily executed him.


I love the variety and strategy trinkets are bringing to the game in 2.4! They do add to early game inventory pressure, which for me is the most frustrating part of the game (juggling a full inventory, throwing stuff down pits, running back and forth).

If trinkets were stored in the velvet pouch instead of the main inventory it would at least keep inventory pressure the same as it is now, without adding to it.
