Wow, the town is at 21o already.  :eek:

Side note: I checked the mall; corncob pipes and frayed rope belts are way too cheap for how good they are.

Yep, we're almost within striking distance of the Big Bad. In fact, I make it just 273 more kills needed to get there, *almost* what can be done in a well-fed day's work :D

I'm going to have to find a way to cripple my player then I'll spend a bunch of turns there. Right now I do so much damage I can never get any hobo nickels.

Since the Hobolord is dead it's time to divide the loot and fill in the basement. I've got no problems digging it back out again once I've done that.

Loot will be distributed amongst those who made a major contribution in Hobopolis, which to my mind works out as myself, Shade and Blood Eagle. A few others poked their noses in but didn't manage to do much this round. So Shade and Blood Eagle, is there anything you particularly want out of the loot?

It's all amazingly good so having to single something out is hard... I want it all :p But anyway... the Bow Tie is particularly nice, but that thing's *so* good compared to the rest that we should probably let chance decide who gets it. Other than that, the Wand of Oscus looks very appealing since I'll be doing a pastamancer run soon, and Chester's Bag of Candy for the same reason since DB is also on the 'do soon' list :)

Loot distributed. I'm going to flood the basement so everyone can have another go. :)

I can't help but feel like that summed up my experience... :lol:

You could make grenades (moxie), bandages (mysticality), and protein powder (muscle).

A grenade will stun a hobo for 3 or 4 rounds.

Bandages heal approximately 500 (I've seen it go as high as 570) HP.

Protein powder does approximately 120 damage (from what little I've seen).

Making them gives a fair amount of stat points.

By the way, I can one-hit hobos with my best spell, now.  :D

Nicely done. I'm still only about 5th level so it will be a while before I get there to help. :)

Here are my plans for the next few months:

BE: On Normal Sauce, then OC Pasta (take Flavour of Magic), then BM Pasta (take Spirit of Rigatoni), then HC Sauce (take Torso Awaregness), then BM Disco (take Heart of Polyester), then pure SC runs.

AB: On OC Seal (take Double-Fisted Skull Smashing), then BM Seal (take Torso Awaregness), then OC Turtle (take Tao of the Terrapin), then BM Disco (take Disco Power Nap), then HC Seal (take Eye of the Stoat).

LS: On HC Disco (take Torso Awaregness), then BM Disco (take Superhuman Cocktailcrafting), then OC Accordian (take Powers of Observatiogn), then OC Turtle (take Amphibian Sympathy).


Any suggestions?

Disco bandit honk up some stuff and make pink ponies. Then drink said pink ponies. That makes for happy good times.. . . .if you're moxie based.

That's certainly not the order I would do it in.  Amphibian Sympathy is a highly important skill. In fact it's the first non food/booze skill you should perm. A passive 5% increase in your familiar's level is very, very useful. Spend 10 turns and 1000 meat at the cake arena and you can have a level 9-11 familiar instantly. And that's nothing to be sniffed at since if you adventure with the volleyball you'll go up in level pretty quickly that way.

And I still don't have the Flavour of Magic or Spirit of Rigatoni IIRC :D

My advice would be to grab the item and meat skills next. The two passive skills from the gnomes will give give a 20% boost forever. Depending on how much you like your money and items you might want the two non-passives too.

And I highly recommend building up a good store of skills before going Oxy. The other two aren't bad but without a good set of skills Oxy will be an enormous drain of time.

I'm planning to stay a sauceror (on BE), and I don't like having to wear that cursed glove. :/

I'm not going to ascend him for a while, though.
