Saw the joke coming a mile away, and even then it wasn't that funny...

I do like the string effect however.

What would have made this better is Dogley: "I've got a bad feeling about this."

Aren't Daggers of Returning in Crawl?

The whole tie-a-string-to-a-dagger thing came up in IRC.

:U

Well, kudos to IRC then!

Man, I should visit them sometime. And finish my currently-outstanding game on NAO. And then start a new one, and waste the next five hours playing Nethack again.

Making a fancy-sounding "Dagger of Returning" from just tying on some string reminds me of 8-bit Theater's Flameface and +2 knifehat.

#3 wins for the Mortal Kombat reference.

what's even worse is that the amulet was an amulet of life-saving, or whatever it's called.

Can a dagger do that much damage with one hit?
