Hello, Dudley, and welcome to Hunt the Wumpus!

You are in room 1, with tunnels to rooms 3, 8, and 16.

You hear rustling.

@ "huh?"

b - 5 custom super anti-evil Wumpus arrows

@ "That's all I get? Heh, better than nothing. Moving out!"

You move to room 16.

Humongous bats pick you up and move you!

@ "Aaugh!"

The giant bat grabs you! You feel a wrenching sensation!

The bats drop you in room 5!

You smell the stench of the evil Wumpus!

@ "Fire an arrow through room 14 and then to room 6!"

The arrow can't find a way from room 14 to 6 and flies randomly into room 5!

Idiot! You've shot yourself!

It locks on to your latent telepathy!

The wumpus appears from nowhere!

The wumpus breaths sleep gas!

You pass out from the stench!

The wumpus hits!

You die...

A pretty good rendering of messages from another game in NetHack layout.

But what happened to the reigning cats and dogs comic? It was here just a minute ago.

@simul: I think one of the admins goofed up and deleted it. I'll try to remake it, though it wasn't my idea so I'll probably screw up.

@Simul: Was the comic laid out as just four panels before? With the first having a really long string of text? Because I did succeed in recovering the comic (I found it in my web browser history and then deapproved and approved it, which fixed the problem), but it doesn't look quite how I thought it did before.

@scorchgeek,yes. Four panels, starts "The housecat sits on the throne. The dog sits on the throne. You feel the weather is changing." etc.

Okay, it's rescheduled in approximately another week. Thanks for pointing out the error--it seems that the software that runs the comic doesn't like people scheduling comics to appear immediately, there was some weird bug.

So, anyone here ever get to the third level of the Ranger quest?
