OK, this game is several steps above Progress Quest, but still mindlessly entertaining as to be played during lunch or while code runs. It's part rpg; your character has three stats: Muscle (made up of strengthliness and fortitude), Mysticality (made up of enchantedness and magicalness), and Moxie (made up of roguishness and sarcasm). It's part inventory management; there's no limit on what you can carry, but you can only have one weapon, one hat and one pants on at a time, and three accessories. There's also crafting a-plenty. There's optional PVP, there's a mall where you can buy a store to sell the items you get from combat or crafting.

In the end, it's quite funny, there are lots of areas to explore, you advance pretty quickly, there are tons of monsters and items to experiment with, familiars with interesting powers, and each class can learn skills and craft special items.

I have started a Techhouse clan. The game has been around for quite awhile, but with some organization, we could easily be among the strongest, richest players around. Being in a clan gives you extra meat (cash), extra turns, and a nice place to trade items between members.

It would be nice to have characters of the following classes: Accordion The if and Sauceror most of all, Turtle Tamer, and Pastamancer secondly. The others are also useful and fun, but the AT, Sauce, and TT are the only classes which can buff other players, and the items they craft are the most usefully.

The 80 turns you start out with should be enough to get to lvl 3, which is necessary to join a clan. Follow the Toot Oriole's directions, then if you're an AT or disco bandit, adventure in the Sleazy Back Alley on the wrong side of the tracks to get the most Moxie. If you're a Sauceror or Pastamancer, adventure in the Hidden Pantry on the right side of the tracks for magicalness, and if you're a TT or Sealclubber, adventure in the Outskirts of Cobb's Knob in the nearby plains for strength.

Message me (General Zod) once you join, I'll send you some food (gives stats and extra adventures), stat potions, and meat for buffs from one of the bots. Also, if you want crafting, item, and food/booze spoilers, go here, and if you want quest spoilers, go here.

Finally, don't sell, eat, or discard anything you get from adventuring (unless you really want to... I won't tell you how to play the game...). I can send you the best food and booze, and provide meat for (pretty much) anything you need. I'll explain more in the clan-chat message board.

http://www.escmag.com/v5/reviews/review.cfm?rv=415 and an interesting review of the game.

I crafted a Gnollish AutoPlunger today from a Gnollish plunger and a meat engine. It's pretty sweet.

I can't wrap my head around the currency being meat.

Uty, you of all people should become quite accustomed to meat as currency.

Hey dumbass - I've had a sealclubber for a week now. In fact, I've asked you to make a few things for me, but you're ignoring me...
