By panel 2 (counting from 0, as always), I was really hoping for something other than a newt. There are plenty of alternatives. A band of soldier ants would've worked great.

The footnote, on the other hand, is pretty amusing.

wait... what's a P in Angband anyway? I know R is a lizard class in crawl...

#3 Anonymous Sat, 23 Jan 2010 03:17:34
In panel 2, the black P is Morgoth

#4 Anonymous Sat, 23 Jan 2010 03:18:13
My mistake, I meant panel 1 (counting from 0)

Duh - the 'other' site is down again?

#6 Sorceror Sat, 23 Jan 2010 13:16:12
The other site is only down if you care to check to see if it is down.

#7 NobodySpecial Sat, 23 Jan 2010 15:22:34
Actually, Sorceror, I'm pretty sure that if a tree falls in a forest when nobody's around to hear it, it does make a sound.

For the reference, the R in Crawl is Mara, if you read crawl.develz.org's development blog. She's a tough unique.

The Crawl one should have been Sigmund. (And soldier ants for NetHack.) I'm not sure about Angband; it's probably better to give the threats that are most threatening for where in the game they appear.

#10 Sorceror Sun, 24 Jan 2010 03:31:15
NobodySpecial: But how do you know that the tree has fallen if you can't hear it?

Sorry, Shroedinger wins.

@ais523:
No, Sigmund is actually quite easy to beat when you do some VERY basic preparation:
Non-Wizard:
1. Get some stones or similar, these are easy to find.
2. Quiver them.
3. Fire them at Sigmund.
4. Use healing potions when necessary.

Wizard is a bit easier:
1. Level up a bit on Dungeon:1 so you can cast Magic Dart.
2. If you can, memorise Mephitic Cloud.
3. Use Magic Dart (and Mephitic Cloud if you have it) against Sigmund.

Sorry, wizard step 1 should be:
1. Level up a bit on Dungeon:1 so you can cast Magic Dart reliably.

The other site seems to have been taken by "Oregon Trail of Tears".

#14 Sorceror Sun, 24 Jan 2010 11:54:44
Or you could play Nethack and get killed by a grid bug while helpless.

I must be anal retentive as I found the colon amusing.

[anal retentive is an internal pun, a game called personality poker has a card with that label and people always ask what the heck it means :]

E for making fun of Angband (saying that a single newt is as hard as Morgoth).
