I guess it was a wand of nothing before it was #dipped in a potion of gain level. (http://www.statslab.cam.ac.uk/~eva/slashem/potions.html)

Nice comic.

ZAP!
You hear singing.
ZAP!
You feel aggravated towards the mastodon.
ZAP!
You see here an iron chain.

How would the wand react if zapped with no charges left? The default message for that is "Nothing happens," but that doesn't make sense here...

Something happens, but you can't tell what.

Something is better than nothing. And nothing is better than sex. So, I like this new wand a lot.

I can only rate this one Good, because the follow-up is that much better!

Kind of reminds me of a wand of wonder.

I'm rating this one excellent just because of Medandrea's comment.

Also, Medandrea: If it were zapped with no charges left, the appropriate message would be "You sense a lack of something."

@Medandrea:
"Something did not happens."

#8 Anonymous Thu, 28 Apr 2011 21:12:10
"Nothing seems to happen" would be if you don't see what happened,

#9 ThePathfinder Wed, 12 Nov 2014 11:27:16
It should be a wand of wonder.
