It took me a couple of seconds to get it.
It has been done before, so I'll give it a G, but there's a chance that I will change my mind later and make it an E.

Edit: Why do all my comments get double posted lately?

I'm not sure I get it.

Is this about "denting" the right leg of the lowercase h to turn it into a k?

#4 Manutraveler Sat, 25 Jul 2009 04:53:37
Yes, the spear "breaks" rhe right leg of the h, forming a k (I remember it had been done before, with someone using a belt to turn a D into a B, but I can't remember any more details, when it was or even on which site).

YANI: Imagine a potion of polymorph you hit a monster with while hallucinating had a 50% chance of morphing the monster in this "literal" way, perhaps re-using the mechanics how engraved letters smudged.

Before you lynch me: YANI means humor or mythology, not game balance or request for actual implementation.

#6 Dav Sat, 25 Jul 2009 16:56:51
I figured the spear stuck into the h, making it a k. (Imagine an h with a line sticking out of it).

I graded this 'F', but a stray spear attached to it and now it's 'E'.
