Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

I was just wondering who else adventures in the Kingdom? (There I am also PlutoniumBoss.)

Also, I want to ask for advice in familiar naming. I have a slight inclination towards Transformer names. For example:

My Astral Badger is named Heinlad.
My Blood-Faced Volleyball is named Unicron Jr.
My Mosquito is named Big Mos.
My Barrrnacle is named Dead End.
My Stab Bat is named Ratbat.
My Ghuol Whelp is named Fangry. (Actually, I'm going to name him Repugnus instead.)
My Killer Bee is named FKTM Waspinator.
My Snowy Owl is named Icebird.
And my Teddy Bear is named Barbearian.

My dilemma is this. On my next ascension, I will be making a Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot. But what to name him? I'm kind of leaning toward Bludgeon or Cannonball. (Bludgeon is definitely a Ninja Zombie Robot, and Cannonball is a Pirate Robot with Zombie tattoos.) But those names both seem to fall short somehow. An ideal name would completely fit his Ninja Pirate Zombie Robotness. Any suggestions?

Mecha-Ninja LeChuck?

The Fallen?

Something Seacon-related? Say, Piranacon, or God Neptune?

Sharkticon?

I only had a KoL avatar for months. Haven't played in forever though. My account's probably wiped by now. Last time I played was just as they were starting Acensions. I think only a handful had done it by then.

Dean, did you play before or after ascensions were added? Either way, KoL isn't something to do if you're looking for a Serious Gaming Experience, but there's actually surprising depth once you get over the simplistic interface.

If you played before Ascensions, you might want to give it a try again. Ascension lets you replay after you kill the Naughty Sorceress, with access to more content. There's options to be reborn under different Zodiac Signs that give you different benefits as well as access to different areas.

And the new Astral Badger content is funny as jive. I'm in Hardcore right now so I couldn't send you any Astral Mushrooms to get into the new area, but I'm saving them up. When I get out of hardcore I'll gladly send some to my Allspark peeps.

Also, the Radio KOL shoutcast channel is highly entertaining.

For those of you curious, my other familiars also tend to have entertaining names:

My Leprechaun is named Trip O'Dometer.
My Fuzzy Dice are named Racecar and Yaya
My Balloon Monkey is named Yoko
My Grue is named Makkuro Kurosuke.
My Cocoabo is named Woodstock.
My Pet Rock is named Teddy, and you won't get that one unless you've read Isaac Asimov's joke books.
My Baby Gravy Fairy is named Rockapella. (Two words: "THE LOOT!")
And my elemental Gravy Fairies are named after the five days of the Discordian week. Thus my Spooky Gravy Fairy is named Boomtime, my Frozen Gravy Fairy is Prickle-Prickle, my Sleazy Gravy Fairy is named Sweetmorn, and when I get them my Stinky Gravy Fairy will be Pungenday and my Flaming Gravy Fairy will be Setting Orange.

I used to Loathe a long time ago.

I never got past level 10 before I got bored out of my mind and stopped.

The X adventures per day thing was what made it so frustrating.

If you mix booze and cook food, you can get quite a lot of turns. With the high end drinks and food, you can more than double your daily allotment of turns.

Drunkenness disappears at rollover every night, and that's it. But once you complete the quest for the Deep Fat Friars, they'll train you to be able to drink more. Youll be able to drink up to 20 Drunkenness instead of 15.

My advice is to check out the KOL Wiki. It's an excellent resource, it'll tell you the ingredients you need to mix more powerful drinks. Mad Train and other dropped booze is easy to get, but if you want to get more bang for your buck then Cocktailcrafting is where it's at.

After a good couple months of playing, I've finally started the Naughty Sorceress quest. Judging from the Wiki, it's... pretty lengthy.

Also, I always named a pet mosquito "Mr. Squito". This is what I do. This is how I roll.

Wow, and i was about to make this thread... curse you PlatinumBoss!!!!

I am RDeLuca
and have ascended once...
the game is damn addicting and takes me aroud 45 mins to an hour to use all my quests a day...

It's fun, funny, and keeps my attention. That's all I really need.
They more recently added a lot of stuff (NS-13), so if you haven't played in the last couple months (it was implemented June 25th, 2007; to be exact...) then there's a crapload of new stuff to do!

GET LOATHING!
AN ADVENTURER IS YOU!


Edit: Hey, maybe when i've started to get good enough to have a real amount of meat I'll start a clan for Allsparkers
