There have NOT been THAT many ascensions.

I'll be generous, because I liked the bit joke. Though why is the number of amulets in the stack signed?

obj::quan (yeah, yeah, no scope resolution operator in C) is an (implicitly signed) long, which is 32 bits on 32-bit platforms and 64 bits on 64-bit platforms. (see obj.h line 29)

Another mysterious thing about Tyr: he stands behind his throne. (Or in front of, perhaps, but he still doesn't sit on it.)

Wow, I influenced a comic! I don't think that I've ever done that before.

(I know, I know, I could WRITE one …)
