Huh? Resisting to vote until I get a slight idea what's going on up there...

#2 DrSunglass Thu, 24 Dec 2009 00:15:21
Heh, a fart joke self-reference.

#3 Anonymous Thu, 24 Dec 2009 00:16:24
He genocides the floor, so the dungeon starts to collapse. He finds the Amulet of Yendor quickly because he doesn't need to use the stairs - it's on the bottom level, which everything falls down to. With the Amulet of Yendor, he consumes a tin of baked beans. Baked beans are known to cause flatulence. This flatulence pushes him upwards to the Astral Plane, where he wins the game.

#4 Sorceror Thu, 24 Dec 2009 01:13:38
Would be E if there were fewer inane captions and fart jokes.

#5 CuleX Thu, 24 Dec 2009 08:18:26
"Tudley the Demigod" HAH! I knew it couldn't be Dudley.

#6 Quint Thu, 24 Dec 2009 12:33:56
For Dudley, the can of baked beans was improperly sealed and is thus rotten and gives him food poisoning.

#7 ajbRad Thu, 24 Dec 2009 15:16:27
I feel very satisfied, for some reason.

#8 NobodySpecial Thu, 24 Dec 2009 15:23:52
So we're already at meta-fart jokes. That didn't take long.

#9 JackOfClubs Thu, 24 Dec 2009 15:28:09
Based on current events, shouldn't the hero here be Maud rather than Tudley?

#10 xCheckPoint Thu, 24 Dec 2009 15:35:17
Okay, now that I got the storyline I wish to see the 'energy charge' part to E that.

#11 SmashFan2005 Thu, 24 Dec 2009 15:57:19
ironically enough, I submitted a comic that'll be posted in like 4 days. It has to do with Maud as well.

anyway, E.

#12 Sorceror Thu, 24 Dec 2009 20:27:33
*clears throat* WHO WAS THAT MAUD PERSON ANYWAY?

(Don't answer; for by thinking of Maud, you forget everything else.)

#13 Anonymous Fri, 25 Dec 2009 09:59:35
Based on current events, he would be killed by a inobtrusive stalker.

#14 ais523 Sat, 26 Dec 2009 16:50:21
You lose so many points for not calling this a scroll of geocide. (I like discussing it pretty much every opportunity I'll get in #nethack.)

#15 LayneRobinson Tue, 5 Jan 2010 15:05:09
Can of beans + Wand of Fire.......and don't forget the ring of fire resistance.

ais523 wins the cheese.
