Not really (tips on food) other than having 'bonus' charicters ;) If you look through the forums you may find something but I think just fighting stuff and getting lucky.
If you go to messages you can accept/propose a trade, just give an item for 1 piece of meat or whatever

4. Don't abuse multis.

    This is a tricky one. It's not against the rules to have more than one character per household, or per computer, or even per person. What is against the rules, however, is to have a bunch of extra characters that act as item or Meat farmers for your main character.

    It's also against the rules to have a bunch of extra characters that form a clan, for the purposes of getting discounted beer, foties, and stat boosters.

    Here's a yardstick: If your main character is advancing at a rate faster than would be possible without multis, then you're more than likely in violation of this rule.

    If you're abusing multis, and your behavior is noticed, all accounts other than what appears to be your primary will be disabled. If you make a bunch more multis and start doing it again, your primary will be disabled.

    It is especially against the rules, and makes me really angry, if you keep creating new accounts, using their initial 80 adventures, sending all of the stuff to your primary and then deleting the account. This action will result in the IMMEDIATE deactivation of all of your accounts, and potentially in your IP being banned. DO NOT DO THIS.

Got any tips? I only get 40 adventures a day - not getting any food, and advancing my moxie is hard. I usually only get a point or maybe 2 a day, and I need 6 more to get to lvl 5.  :(


Title: Lost Topic Title
Post by: simmo on January 19, 2005, 05:38:12 pm
well the best advice is to find the area that almost kicks your ass and hang out there, also visit the council of loathing and complete the tasks they give (they will give different ones depending on your level and what you have unlocked).
I have an item that I made from "combining" other items (with the help of kol.coldfront.net) that gives me 4 more adventures per day ... other than that it just depends on who/what you fight

Title: Lost Topic Title
Post by: simmo on January 20, 2005, 03:10:56 pm
spoilers to follow:














to get the mosquito just fight in the spooky woods for a bit and get a mosquito lavae, then put that in the terrarium (buy at the store) (mosquito takes HP from an enemy and gives it to you).
I use the volley ball with a blody hand print face, to get that use the seal tooth (found in sewer) to blody your hand after you get the volley ball from the hermit. (this familiar gives you increased stats from battles).
The item I mentioned that I have at my campsite that give me 4+ adventures each day is a clockwork maid or a meat maid... that is built out of alot of things (i believe all can be found in degrassi knoll)

I've added a load of items to the stash - not sure if any of it is worthwhile stuff but I am reluctant to sell stuff at the moment incase it turns out to be usefull.

I also added some meat.

I say we go for the calendar first - I desperately need those adventures so I can cut down on my alchohol intake :D

How much meat do we need for a calandar?


Title: Lost Topic Title
Post by: simmo on January 21, 2005, 04:24:51 pm
it takes 50,000 meat to buy a calendar, I have a pluchase that I am less than 2k away from but after that I should be able to dump alot of meat into it. (i also may be getting a co worker in there as well :)


oh, and I'll post instructions on how to build a clockwork maid as well as put most of the parts needed in the stash

Ok, do we have to contribute meat, or is it voluntary?


Title: Lost Topic Title
Post by: simmo on January 28, 2005, 03:33:21 pm
It is totaly voluntary but...
it is used to buy things that benefit all (like the calendar that we bought today gives us all 3 more adventures at rollover) but...
When you are <lv7 it is important to buy some things you need and that is understandable. :)

[edit]In a way it is manditory because of the clan karma effect, basicaly you have to give to receive but its really lax[/edit]

Firstly I have a Lucky Leprechaun that gives you extra meat on each adventure.

I also completed a quest that gave a massive meat reward.

I'm doing the buy/sell thing you mentioned.

Adventure in the treasure room under cobbs knob - you keep getting chests with 500 meat in them.

Anything i put in the stash is free for the taking - so dig in!

I don't have any adventure generating devices - my advice though is suasage pizzas - buy as many as you can at the mall - you can often find then for 10 meat and they will give up to 9 extra adventures.

Another tip - save 20 adventures for the end of the day - and don't drink any alcohol.  Then use those last 20 adventures in the Typical Tavern - try to be caryying the bloody volley ball.  You will lose meat on each adventure but will very quickly gain stat points.

You can only adventure there 20 times befaore you end up falling down drunk (presuming you have the iron liver quest completed).

Simmo - how did you manage to view my stat modifiers?  I was looking for a way to do that but drew a blank.

I added everyone to my "contact list" and you can view members via the search panel :thumb:

good advice on the food although different foods are better fir different people and the more complicated to make the more adventures you get... pastamancers can cook stuff with dry noodles like spicy noodles, delicuous noodles, prOn manicotti and so on. I try to take all the cooking ingrediance that I can make stuff with and put food back into the stash (cos I cant eat it all myself :) ) (I think bat haggis is good for moxie but could be wrong cos its not my primary :) )

when you eat food you gain adventures.
if you eat a tomato you get 1 adventure but if you eat a plain pizza (tomato + dough) you get more adventures and if you eat a sausage pizza (plain pizza + sausage) you get more adventures + a stat boost

you can only eat so much in a day before you get full

The tavern is a bit of a gamble though - often I lose stats on my primary and gain other poo poo I don't really want... :P

I think there are locations though where you can go to specifically boost your primary. Pirates Cove (in disguise) will give you Moxie (or items). Hippy Camp (in disguise) will give you Mysticality (or items). Can't remember if I've seen one for Muscle yet...

You have to use a special weapon and ensure you get the first hit.

I don't want to spoil it too much but if you have problems when you get there I will help more.

To get a bean bag combine a filthy knitted dread sack and beans

The key is to find an cooked, or combined item that is worth more than the constituant parts.

supposedly they are working on letting you change class and start over, keeping a certain number of items, skills, & whatnot after you finish all the quests. Supposedly "boozer bear" is the highest level so he is going to be the first... but I'm not sure what is true or not.

I check the clan stash daily for ingredients, so if you want to chuck any booze stuff in there go for it.

I know what RJ is saying - becomes a bit pointles aftera while - the only aim being to collect stuff.

I've been contemplating breaking my hippy stone and doing some PvP to see if it adds anything to the game.

I've also been looking at an alternative game to see if that offers anything else.


Title: Lost Topic Title
Post by: rjlohan on March 03, 2005, 12:09:25 pm
PvP sorta amusing, but again; no real point unless you're collecting or stat raising. There's no real *goal* to any of it, except status amongst other KoL players, and given that there are those who've been playing for god knows how long and are virtually uncatchable in pretty much anything in the game you can chase, it's a bit pointless... there's no skill involved whatsoever, though it is addictive, and at times amusing.

But instead of giving me a Boris Key Lime Pie, a Jarlsberg Key Lime Pie, a Sneaky Pete Key Lime Pie and a Hermit script, I just got the Hermit script and a stat script (which gave me some extra stats).

the revenue they are getting from it must be amazing.

Here in the UK it is 9 a month to subscribe - I suspect it is similar acros the world.  They announced last week they had 1.5 Million signups - that's nearly 15 Million quid a month they are pulling in - and they haven't even rolled it out in the far east yet.

Accounting for churn and such like it is still a big money maker for them.

I like the slow pace of the turn based'ness of it. Battles are like playing chess. I haven't played WoW but as far as I've seen its one of those high tech games like neverwinter  and I suck at actually playing video games (hence why i still play kol?)

You are spot on about WoW Simmo - in fact it is the biggest thing I hate about the game - the constant 'keyboard twitching' required is fine for limber-fingered teenagers but no good for my creaky old bones.  I have to admit the turn-based combat in dofus did actually appeal to me - being able to have time to think before you act instead of the other way round.

But WoW has a level of polish and immersiveness that is hard to beat - hence why 7 Million people apparently play it - that is an obscene number of players for a game that generates $15 a month per player for its creators.

I would however jump ship without thought if something (I personally thought was) better came along.

Which server?

I knew it had to be you... how did you know about Travian? I am playing as Shortius in the same server.. and in the same alliance.

Actually, I was Shortius in S5 (v2), since I was a Roman. Now I am a gaul and should have technically been, Shortrix... oh well!!





CJ, if you are registering, be sure to choose region NW, explicitly.
