And that somebody is me.

Oh, I get it. That's terrible!

Well, somebody thought this was deserving of a P(no, it wasn't me). Shame on them. I liked it.

"You hear maniacal laughter in the distance."

^^ it is this person who thought it deserved E.

"Dumb move! You strain a muscle"

Yay for brain muscles.

#6 BreathOfSorrows Tue, 23 Feb 2010 03:06:25
You think that if he didn't get it, he would live?

#7 Sorceror Tue, 23 Feb 2010 07:31:41
Hah, I just noticed: the random dungeon room generator put two doors next to each other; one open, one closed. Can we assume that it was a spellbook-dropping pickaxe enthusiast instead? ;)

#8 NobodySpecial Tue, 23 Feb 2010 12:01:50
Maybe a pickaxe-using wizard-lock enthusiast.

#9 BreathOfSorrows Tue, 23 Feb 2010 12:34:25
Or a mimic.

Wait, can mimics disguise themselves as doors next to actual doors?

BreathOfSorrows, I'm pretty sure they can.

Yay, 1 2 3 4!

#12 Anonymous Sun, 28 Feb 2010 22:06:52
Yay 2 3 5 7 (prime numbers)!

#13 Shmuale Tue, 18 May 2010 00:10:15

I assumed it was meta-humor, but then I saw #2...
