Ctaboir killed by his own shame...
BUT, again, everybody should have a right to write one (and not more) newt strip...
And I therefore voting for myself "E".
Shame again...

Not sure if you meant newtley to be just a random newt, or Dudley polymorphed into a newt. But it's funny either way.

Even though I knew a newt joke was coming today I lol'd.

Nice job. E

And my comic that I made two days ago is not scheduled... Paxed must hate it too. Or maybe he's just busy...

I'm sure Rodney would like to hire some newts as bodyguards.

@mijae: I was thinking of Dudley poly'ed in a newt. And for the 100% ascension rate trick, it suppose wand of poly, ring of poly control, and amulet of unchanging, all 3 available at turn 1 or 2. Which in fact would require a bit of start-scumming, I suppose. Cheating!
And I promise, my next ascension on NAO (if any...) will be while polymorphed into a newt!

#7 Anonymous Sat, 11 Jul 2009 11:16:07
stop, you're not alowed poly and polycontrol at the beggining.

#8 ctaboir Sat, 11 Jul 2009 12:32:42
Hey! I said turn 1 or 2: doable for sure using RNG abuse!

#9 CuleX Sat, 11 Jul 2009 15:20:33
Actually, there's a typo. The comic strip says "In return _from_ thy service, [...]", but it's actually "In return _for_ thy service, [...]"

Anyway, I just love newt jokes!

EDIT: What am I complaining about mistakes of other people and typo away myself?

You can poly w/ polycontrol right at the start of the game if you use the Polyhack patch. It's awesome. Play as a mindflayer, a goblin, or a horse. (Having no hands means kicking down every closed door!)

#11 xCheckPoint Sat, 11 Jul 2009 19:22:08
Well done, ctaboir.

#12 Slandor Sat, 11 Jul 2009 19:40:15
You can also play in wizmode (if your system lets you do that) -- wish for the ring, potion, and amulet, do your polymorphing, pop on the amulet, and don't do any other wishing the rest of the game.

I'm not sure how far player-character newts can level up.

#13 Slandor Sat, 11 Jul 2009 19:48:53
On the other hand, it seems as though an amulet is too heavy for a newt to wear (as in, so heavy you can't move), even if you're wearing nothing else. I feel cheated! Someone needs to write a patch or game for havoc-wreaking newts, kind of like Chickhack.

To all (except the one current mediocre rating, but that's life, no problem), well, Many Many Thanks to all for Your Support! I did not expect that! (but seeing my previous submitted as well as unsubmitted strips, sure I cannot predict how a strip will be appreciated.
Specifically to CuleX really sorry about the typo, especially while first panel is mostly cut & paste from wizmode: no excuse at all!
Again my promise: no more newt joke submitted by myself! And again, to be honest, until the next one! None yet to come, hopefully! I used the desired new feature to delete every strip yet unscheduled.
And not sure it's worth precising: in last panel bottom text, there's a newt, but yellow text on white background...
Again many thanks to all!

xCheckPoint: again thank you (you were already included in my previous comment with "all"), but as promised I owe you part of the glory or shame for this, as I written it just after reading your last one two days ago.
No good news about your lost kingdom, I bet? ;-)

There I do:
and statistics:

100% ascension trick! Stupid I am...

#17 Anonymous Sun, 26 Jul 2009 06:43:25
Lol. But... you didn't _play_ as a newt; I can tell by your "latest messages" (and the fact that you had an inventory) that you played as a dwarf and polied into a newt at the last second.

#18 jokeserver Wed, 29 Jul 2009 20:03:33
Is that a newt made out of two bananas?

#19 Quint Thu, 30 Jul 2009 19:30:26
Holy crap, I just noticed that too.

#20 Sorceror Fri, 28 Aug 2009 12:55:06
A new Egyptian god has been discovered in the ancient ruins at Giza:
Dudli'amun, the newt-headed God of net hacking.

Slandor #12, in Wizard Mode you already have poly control with #youpoly, and I know because half my time is on wizard mode
