Some comics are better left not seeing the light of day...

You go for a coffee break and forget to stop your game - your giant barbarian gets killed by a newt horde.

#3 eskimo68 Fri, 21 Aug 2009 07:09:08
Amusing... never go to pee again while playing or the newt will get you, seriously.

Good concept, sub-par execution.

#5 progo Fri, 21 Aug 2009 13:12:01
I've considered a 3D framework (eg. GoldSRC or Doom or Quake) to be fit with NetHack monsters and mapmaking so that we'd have a Doom clone with unlimited amounts of fresh maps. That would also mean some alteration of game play. But I'd have fun playing such a mindless NH/Doom clone :)

progo: there's http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/Slige and http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/OBLIGE

#7 progo Fri, 21 Aug 2009 17:28:31
Oh my! That looks like a start :-)

#8 slowpoke Fri, 21 Aug 2009 20:14:47
I think eskimo68 and xCheckPoint have the right idea for the execution NS is looking for: *nibble nibble* *nibble nibble*, "REST IN PEACE - Dudley killed by a bathroom break, while in RT"

Oh! OBLIGE version is 3.4.3: do we have to wait ten more years for next release?

I liked the "Scroll gets cursed while he's reading it" joke, though I guess I would've made panel 6 "Sent in some arch-liches."

Doom engine allows some fun objects- ex. Strife. But who would read my late comment anyway?

#12 todaal Tue, 16 Mar 2010 11:22:11
Monotonia, no one will ever see your words. By the way, my Priestess currently has an arch-lich pet. Polymorph trap.

TomeNET actually does have RT.
But it lags horribly
RIP,Killed by lag :)
