<[Demo]1> I really hate law enforcement, why are there not players immune to law enforcement
<aosdict> You see here a ring of arrest resistance.

<disperse> As you read the scroll, it disappears. Your boots disintegrate! There's 1/2 of my problems taken care of
<aosdict> count your boots as two problems so that they make up more of the problems taken care of
<disperse> 2/3rds then! Now just need to get rid of this ball and chain (literally).
<aosdict> oh but those might be considered two problems too :P
<disperse> The ball wouldn't be a problem if it weren't chained to my leg

<qt> k2: https://termbin.com/f1dt
<K2> cool
<K2> qt, this isn't a complaint, but just wondering - how come you don't do these as PR's?
<qt> I can totally do them as PRs if you prefer, 'g diff | tb' is just quicker and easier for me than 'g checkout -b fix-blah-blah && g commit --all && g push -u origin fix-blah-blah && gh pr create -f'
<qt> especially for something minor that's one small commit with only a couple lines changed. but I would be happy to do them as PRs! just say the word
<amateurhour> you should do them as PRs just so you can write a nice commit message
<amateurhour> :)
<K2> plus you get the proper credit
<amateurhour> Dearest K2, I write this PR to you today to fix the following problem...
<amateurhour> Yours lovingly, Q3
<K2> aww
<K2> so special
<K2> i'm touched

<rchandra> in nethack, 'May the Force be with you' is a curse, not a blessing.

<Wayward_Vagabond> what's the command for kick again?
<ChrisS67> ^d
<Andrio> I like to think of it as Ctrl+D for 'destroy'
<Andrio> Even though I use 'k'.
<dtype> it is difficult to get a good action highlight clip if you don't kick down every door you encounter
<dtype> think movie trailer for your game

<hothraxxa> so i had a cursed potion of sleeping and a cursed diluted potion of sleeping
<hothraxxa> dipping the undiluted potion so they'd stack, guess what happens
<K2> water demon
<K2> water moccassins
<K2> second coming of jesus christ
<K2> elvis
<K2> ?
<hothraxxa> boy you are one shitty guesser
<K2> you somehow put a wand of cancellation into a BoH
* K2 is done guessing
<hothraxxa> it is true i have no boh
<K2> so what happened hothraxxa
<K2> the suspense is killing amateurhour
<amateurhour> my guess would be
<amateurhour> dipped one potion into the other
<K2> i'm still going with 'elvis'
<Umbire> Exploded the potion and put yourself to sleep?
<VaderFLAG> If it's "I dipped the diluted one" I demand a refund on this story
<mobileuser> the cursed potion became uncursed and wouldn't stack anymore
<mobileuser> a kop appeared an hit you with a rubber hose of fire and your potions exploded
<K2> sharknado
<hothraxxa> mobileuser wins
<mobileuser> \o/
<hothraxxa> i didn't know anyone even cared any more. i come back here to find the channel on tenterhooks
<mobileuser> I'm trying to understand why you would want to stack potions of sleeping
<hothraxxa> oh just for efficiency in dipping
<hothraxxa> on account of fountains dry up, which this one did

< kriebly> but he slipped it off
< blindcoder> no, he slipped off of it
< kriebly> sounds like the giant eel is trying to get into your breeches
< kriebly> what an unpleasant thought

#1751 (2) X July 19, 2015
<Crawldragon> splat?
<Rodney> A death that could have been easily avoided, typically in the late game. Also the sound of breaking eggs.
<Crawldragon> ah, I see
<elenmirie> you can't make an amulet without breaking some eggs...
<Crawldragon> It took me a second to spot the pun in that sentence and now I'm laughing
<elenmirie> ;)
* greeter groans
<Crawldragon> There should be a word for that, laughing after you've just understood the joke you didn't get
 
#1294 (-31) X July 15, 2013
< sjdevnull> It's ridiculous that I can have a huge attack dog on a leash, wander up to a watchman, and let it devour him w/o anyone suspecting I'm at fault at all.
< sjdevnull> "Oh, him, the huge mastiff on the leash? He's not with me, no, why do you ask?"

<argiopeweb> I had a strange tingling run up my arm earlier while dipping something. What was that?
<antivert> ** you're now pregnant with the lady of the lake's child
<antivert> D:
<argiopeweb> Pregnant with a ladies' child?
<antivert> argiopeweb: yeah, good luck with that in nine months

<Beholder> [hdf-eu] [slex] amateurhour (Mon Asu Mal Law) received Markus's Justice by Shan Lai Ching, on T:1893
<LarienTelrunya> so artifact gifts do exist after all!
<aosdict> wait, "by" Shan Lai Ching?
<aosdict> is this a book or something?
<LarienTelrunya> oh damn, I guess it should say "from"
<aosdict> no no, I like my headcanon
<aosdict> "Argh, why did I have to pick the god who thinks they're a writer, all they send me is terrible drivel, and if I don't read it they'll smite me"

< WKhor> The convict role gets an artifact from their quest leader called "Iron ball of levitation"
< WKhor> which gives you it's weight in extra carry cap
< WKhor> so I punished myself as far as I could and now I can carry the magic chest
< WKhor> which means I can store the whole dungeon in there without being even burdened
< WKhor> well fuck
< WKhor> someone stole the iron ball

< Muad> kadoban, the mumak will either follow you or stand there, he won't hit you the same turn.
< Muad> as long as you can step away from him, that is
< bcode> they move, move, move, stop
< bcode> move, move, move, stop; repeat
< bcode> you, otoh, just move
< kadoban> I can move diagonal away it looks like...guess I'll go for it
< bcode> you could even try move-move-move-hit;repeat

< IanKeith> Except he likes to stop.
< IanKeith> And stare at the ground.
< greycat> Maybe he's a geologist.

<K2> wassup
<mobileuser> slex problem was solved :-)
<K2> you know what the ultimate fix is right?
<K2> rm -rf /slex
<K2> :P
<mobileuser> that's a different story :b
<K2> heh
<amateurhour> K2 can u save the delet of slex till after mobileuser has ascended?
<amateurhour> you'll only have to wait a day or so
<amateurhour> :)
<K2> asc in slex dont actually happen. its a form of mass hypnosis when Tariru 'ascended'
<Pinkbeast> Nah, when no-one's watching but Amy, she tells you the secret cheat code

<amateurhour> you summoned her
 
#2625 (-4) X January 28, 2019
<aosdict> finally some time to resume looking at slicehack
<aosdict> Do you think someone should fork it and make sluicehack? See how long we can keep the chain of words going?
<aosdict> or maybe we should go slicehack -> licehack (with lots of a added) -> icehack (with lots of ice levels, sheol ported, and cold themed monsters)
<aosdict> then we can finally get nicehack
<K2> vicehack
<K2> explore all the bad habits in game
<K2> oh and micehack
<K2> monsters consist of mice and elephants only
<jonadab> Hmm, with only two kinds of monsters, you'd need to do some clever things with the AI.
<jonadab> Think: smart kobolds.
<K2> ricehack for our vegetarian players
<K2> dicehack --> lots of gambling
<K2> yeah, i feel silly
<jonadab> tricehack - all enemies can stone you
<jonadab> juicehack - you can apply fruit to create potions of fruit juice
<aosdict> twicehack - after you ascend, you are mysteriously teleported back down to DL 1 of a new dungeon
<aosdict> spicehack - a full cooking patch is implemented
<aosdict> pricehack - introducing the shopkeeper role
