An entertainingly silly MMORPG

<a href="http://www.kingdomofloathing.com">Kingdom of Loathing</a>

Any game where your intrepid Seal Clubber, Disco Bandit or Pastamancer can attempt to steal your own pants without noticing, whack Knob Goblin Barbecue Teams with a Homoerotic Frat Paddle, craft powerful swords and armor out of meat, retrieve Bum Cheeks from the corpses of rushing Bums and glue them together to make an Asshat, and be told "You've had the crap kicked out of you. You'll have to find more crap" when you're KO'ed can't be all bad.

Don't forget Accordion Thieves! I'm level 6 I think. I like the Haiku Dungeon.

I've got one of each class (to try them out -- since the database is being reset soon, it doesn't really matter much, and I had a handful of email addresses to use). My highest guys are Level 5, holding their own in the Spooky Forest and trying to not get crunched in Degrassi Knoll.

The clans are amazingly helpful.

I haven't tried out PvP yet -- haven't really dared to, as I don't have any of the assorted safeguards around my campground.

Better than PQ, though that's a great game in it's own right.

Level 14 and counting.

Watching the economy of the game fluctuate is almost as entertaining as the game itself. Prices ebb and flow in mysterious ways.

I have a handful of them:
* delfin
* Video Sex Pope
* ThingFish
* Crotch Monkey
* I Never Wash My Groin
* Jones Crusher

Having WAY too much fun right now beating on members of a Gundam clan via PvP. One of them responded to a PvP loss by sending me a message of "why hu illl killl u basstred!!!!" I taunted him back, then started pounding my way through the rest of his clan; the leader attacked me today (and lost) with a message of "you bastared".

I'm going to keep hitting them until at least one of them can spell.

I'm with you Hm.. I read this one ages ago.. well maybe it just seems that way.. just signed up a couple of days ago... man I'm hooked! although I'm still low level. keep an eye out for a disco bandit by the name of chunk_hugelarge !

it just reminds me of all the silly things we'd do while playing AD&D stoned out of our gourds, all the old zork games etc. ah! memories.. well, parts of them anyway.

Ascension is coming! I'm stupidly excited about it. Kingdom of Loathing is my favourite work-time waster.

Alas, I am too low-level. When I get to that point, Ascention will be old news.

yeah same here.. damn rollover! I'm usually at work when it happens.. I'm only 4th level right now, although when ronald and grimace decide to shine on me! OH BABY! gimmie that Moxie! although the thing that has cracked me up themost so far.. when I was trying to explain the game to someone at work (who is now also hopelessly hooked) when I told him about the toot oriel (sp?).. when I said it outloud, I couldn't stop laughing for about 10 minutes.

Or the Orc Chasm. I haven't been there yet, but it's mentioned in some FAQ...
