You enter a relaxing Zen garden!

You feel less hassled.

Just pretend there's not 50 billion more monsters stampeding through the door already.

Win.

Great use of that message! Best comic in a while.

#4 Factorial Sun, 4 Oct 2009 02:56:18
LMAO. Great to have another one playing on normal NH messages.

hey paxed, I'm assuming you added the cursor to Dudley cause it was annoying telling him apart from the priest - thanks for that. I always leave it off but now that I see it this way, it does look a lot better.

#6 paxed Sun, 4 Oct 2009 07:59:55
mijae: yes, I added the cursor. You can too! Just press 'm' while hovering the mouse over the edit pane (with the red block cursor). The same thing toggles it off.

am i the only one who doesn't understand this reference? I don't know what a "zen garden" is.

#8 Quint Sun, 4 Oct 2009 16:56:17
A home decoration that consists of a nice, relaxing garden filled with some plants, stones, and other decorations. May include a fountain, if you're sufficiently wealthy. Often includes a centerpiece that looks vaguely like a temple, an offerings thingy, or something like that.

I love the idea of blowing up a pile of rocks with a landmine. :D

I have to say, brilliant.

I'm very late coming, but I have to ask, why Pestilence? Is it meant to be part of the joke or just a coincidence? I thought it was humorous enough without.

^^^ "You feel less hassled" is the message given when a Rider's corpse starts to decay, meaning it won't be coming back to life to hassle you any more.
