Good one.

Job's Dungeon?

Just a question, they have the make artifact, so why do they bet ONE zorkmid?

#4 PIxels Tue, 24 Feb 2009 21:45:13
If you can make as many artifacts as you like, they probably aren't worth much to you.

Anyways, the point is that the Gods would put Dudley through all that for a pittance and their amusement. Can't say I'd do any different.

I can't help but feel sorry for Dudley over this one.

As usual, Dudley is a pawn of the gods. Heh.

I seriously doubt they actually care _that_ much about that Amulet.

#7 Newtkiller Tue, 3 Mar 2009 10:39:30
They do. Simply, they have so many dudley in their stores....
