? We're not going through this any more. Here's the amulet. Have fun, 78291.
Ever wondered why he stopped playing?

I didn't get it at first, but one quick Google search answered the question. I'd deduct for the need for a longer search, but not for that. Funny!

Dang.

Huh?
78291 checkpoint allied monster... still baffled. Annoying if this is funnier than at it first appears (which means obscure stuff should always have the reference beneath).

I don't get it, but I still like it!

Sorry, I thought the 78291 reference was obvious. At least for #nethack irc readers...

Well, we don't all visit #nethack. I'm not even sure what network that would be on.

Nor do we all play on NAO. That's the main reason this comic has web registration now, after all.

I tried to play on a public server once.. pretty sure it was NAO. The keystroke lag annoyed me and I gave up after DL1 I think. Never been to the IRC channel either.

sigh

78291 was an amazing player, he could make almost any game winnable.

He has over 200 ascensions.. for anybody who doesn't know.

Thanks to #5, now voted.

I'm pretty new to NAO, #nethack and Dudley :D
