Kingdom of Loathing: An Introduction and an Update

KoLMy personal favorite web-based MMORPG is called Kingdom of Loathing. It's a great web-browser-based MMORPG, filled full or satire, and spoofs on pop culture. The game was is created by Asymmetric Publications. Your main objective is to slay the Naughty Sorceress and free King Ralph XI. Doing this will then allow you to "ascend" and let you play the game again with more features, and with a stronger character.


Kingdom of Loathing, or KoL as it's sometimes known, has had a few major updates recently.  It seems skills are really being worked over. Now is a skill becomes uncastable, they will be greyed out instead of completely disappearing from your list (in Firefox only).  No more wondering why your pastamastery skill disappeared!


Transcendental Noodlecraft and The Way of Sauce now are allowed to be used 5 times instead of 3, as long as you also have the Pastamastery or Advanced Saucecrafting skill that is.  This has been a change that has been meant to be implemented for a long time now.  Thankfully they got around to it.


For the select few of you that actually own the Astral Badger familiar, to gain access to the astral mushroom zones, the cerebral items now form a complete outfit named the Encephalic Ensamble.


Another change within the last week is that there is a new item in the Grimoire.  One of the biggest changes is that level 15 crafting skills for Seal Clubbers, Saucerors, and Pastamancers have been completely re-done.  Especially Saucecrafting, as a few item effects have been changed.  If you are a Pastamancer, and used to cooking chow mein, you may not be able to again, until you get the level 15 skill anyway.  No more low level characters cooking chow mein.


Those are all of the main changes this week.  There are also a few trivial updates that you can read at the KoL website.
