I think I've seen a similar strip before.

Do you want to watch a video ad and have your posessions identified? (ynq)

Very similar to this:

This strip has a similar subject to mine (794), but approaches the subject differently. Tocksin1 chose a completely different set of F2P tropes to focus on. Where I don't dwell on the fictional F2P mechanics, he goes out of his way to portray the DevTeam as greedy. Meanwhile, he calls out new imbalances and annoyances caused by F2P influence (wand of amulet summoning, real cash shop), while I use the F2P tropes entirely within the context of existing Nethack issues (role difficulty, lucky wishes and explore mode).

So don't complain that this is too similar to an existing strip.

Why AmuYndr is included in the Legends Pack?

No, it's Eye of aethiopica.
