Would you like to play a game?

I'm addicted, nay, obsessed with a game called Kingdom of Loathing. It's an on-line Role Playing Game. No, I'm not trying to get you play Dungeons and Dragons with me, this is way cooler. You play as an adventurer traveling around the Kingdom fighting monsters and doing quests. but here's the twist: it is packed full of references to tons of cult classic movies and books. there are tons of quotes from H2G2, The Big Lebowski, and Army of Darkness, plus references to Steven King books and tons of SciFi Classics. Plus there are tons of jokes, haikus, limericks, and palindromes

There is a whole area where the the monsters are constellations named after different terms for naughty bits like the Hooded Warrior -
or the Camel's Toe -

as you can see, the graphics are very simple. there's even a taco cat -

you have the option of being a Disco Bandit, an Accordion Thief, a Pastamancer, a Sauceror, a Seal Clubber, or Turtle Tamer, each with its own set of special abilities. There's even a Wiki dedicated to KOL

I've mentioned this game once before on my blog which got Deon interested in playing. I've just found out that he has started up a clan for Dave Barry Bloggetts and that he's gotten Bismuth to play too.
