I haven't seen Q in Nethack for ages! I forgot about them :D

"Ziggy says you have to retrieve the Amulet of Yendor for a god called 'The Lady'."

That's a nice special effect!

I don't know what to say about this one.

I also love the effect, great use of the color. Awesome concept too - a Leaper might actually do a lot of good in the nethack world, jumping in and redoing those times when you had the right thing in your inventory all along.

mijae: Ziggy says you can't leap until you find a greased bag of holding and a wand of wishing for Dudley.

Sharing a link: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/4013/the_history_of_rogue_have__you_.php

It's about Rogue, but as NetHack fans, I'm sure we can all appreciate it.
(I've been looking for the Amulet of Yendor since 1988.)

I dont get it, but the effect is cool

For anyone who doesn't get the reference:

I thought it was some reference to LEP, the high engergy physics particle collider. And a way cool graphics effect.

Now, with the youtube clip setting it straight, the strip is only half as good.

TJR: You mean twice as good, right?

#11 TJR Thu, 7 May 2009 19:28:12
@Sorcerer: A particle accellerator smashes up blobs, produces a miniature big-bang, and after a while the created microcosm invariably decays due to random quantum effects. Kind of like nethack games.

Nope, I meant half as good. I really groaned at yet another time travel and 20/20 hindsight series ripoff.

I'm sorry, I'm not interested ventolin 2.5 sv Screening does more harm than good, the panel has said, because although 240,000 new prostate cancers are diagnosed each year in the United States, only about 30,000 prove fatal. That means many men are treated for cancers that grow too slowly to be life-threatening, and often suffer sexual and urinary problems as a result.

They’re the element that makes the whole thing work. The garden designer puts their mark on it, but the final feeling of the place has a lot to do with the head gardener. What I do is to observe what they’ve done and translate that into my own expression.”
