<GreyKnight> So, my theory: Croesus employs the leprechauns to steal gold from adventurers
<ais523> GreyKnight: I think there's actually in-game evidence of that, perhaps in past versions
<deve> then why aren't there any 'l's in ludios?
<ais523> at least, both Croesus and the leprechauns have been tied to the vaults at one time or another
<GreyKnight> Alternate theory: "Croesus" is actually just three leprechauns standing on each others' shoulders, under a trenchcoat
<ais523> perhaps the vaults used to be owned by leprechauns, but nowadays are owned by croesus instead?
<ais523> <GreyKnight> Alternate theory: "Croesus" is actually just three leprechauns standing on each others' shoulders, under a trenchcoat <-- I pretty much want to make that canon now ;)
<GreyKnight> ais523: hostile takeover?
<ais523> could be
<Rhino1005> you could make Croesus' death spawn 3 leprechauns where he died
<GreyKnight> Croesus bought up 51% shares in LepreVault Inc.
<Malpercio> 52%
<GreyKnight> ais523: simplest way seems to be to spawn three leprechaun corpses as a death drop, and leave no "Croesus" corpse?
<ais523> GreyKnight: yes
<ais523> this is not the time for frivolous changes like that, though
<ishanyx> GreyKnight, :D
<GreyKnight> "this is not the time" <-- so, remind you in late March, then? :o)

<AmyBSOD> hi Adeon! There are some new monsters in slex version 1.71, which Pinobot may find interesting. :)
<@Adeon> yog-sothoth help me
<AmyBSOD> he's one of the new monsters, and many others from the Cthulhu Mythos are in there too. Shudde Mell, Ghatanothoa, Null the Living Void etc.
<+khoR> Null the living void? Sounds like my database.

<+rld> <@lapis/ootc> is there any problem with using cross-aligned artifact armor? like its not gonna blast me every time i get hit right?
* bhaak takes notes
<bhaak> I'm always surprised how careless players are in giving devs some bad ideas to implement
<[Demo][srn]> im surprised when devs implement them

<krm26> YASI: mine flayers, every square they walk on becomes a landmine
<mtf> no no they flay mines, meaning they destroy all landmines they come in contact with
<mtf> eating them, becoming stronger

<aoei> i do sometimes wonder whether or not the devs actually play the game
<amateurhour> no time for playing games, get back to the programming!
* amateurhour cracks whip
<aoei> i thought elenmirie__ was my project manager
<elenmirie_> we've all been to the devteam office...

<AntiGulp> I *almost* have slashem guns ported, but the code for grenades makes absolutely no sense. I can't even tell what's happening.
<aosdict> well grenades aren't guns
<aosdict> so they don't need to be ported
<aosdict> problem solved

<Camwin> horse goes around corner, comes back as baby purple worm
<Camwin> Cancel that, its now a chameleon
<Camwin> Sometimes it will kick ass, sometimes it will turn into a lichen and die
<Camwin> Turned into a freezing sphere and exploded. Why
<Andrio> yeah, they'll do that.
<Andrio> Mine did that once.
<Muad> they are not likely to do it more than once

<hothraxxa> now if only all the blessed enchant armour scrolls would stop giving me +1
<hothraxxa> highly irritating
<elenmirie_> hothraxxa: ask for your holy water to be refunded
<hothraxxa> i will demand to speak with the manager
<hothraxxa> i'll go back to the dev team office and give mike stephenson a stern lecture
<hothraxxa> show him my stormbringer
<elenmirie_> that sounds like a plan

<antigulp> I plan on making furnaces / forges more useful in the next version of Splice. K2 may or may not steal whatever I do from me :)
<misha> oh hm, how do you fix stuff with a furnace?
<misha> i only know how to cook (mostly burn) stuff
<antigulp> Dip it in the furnace and there's a 1/30 chance that it gets erodeproofed. The other 29/30 times it melts in the lava and the furnace might explode.
<antigulp> ...in my defense, I never said they were very good furnaces.

<TheGame20_> NBA is also(out of the 4 major north american sports anyway) where on player can have the biggest impact on team success
<jonathanhanes_> nethack is not the NBA though
<@Tone> The NBA would probably look like this if there were only 150 people in the country who played basketball

<shadowcat> crap. a ghost, right at a staircase, surrounded by water demons and pets.
<hothraxxa> oh you're fucked my man

<+Beholder> [hdf-us] [sp] k2 (Val Hum Fem Law), 55735 points, T:18312, killed by a hill giant
<@K2> ^ thats annoying
<+aosdict> I bet there's such a thing as a "kill giant" in slex
<@K2> of course the potion i had in open inventory was full healing
<@K2> and of course the giant that killed me, i killed it first but it had "oLS
<@K2> oh look a magic lamp...
<Pinkbeast> After the kill giant kills you, the will giant comes and distributes your possessions. With any luck, your potions of healing will go to the ill giant, if their value isn't taken by the bill giant.
<@K2> then they all go to the bar and have drinks made by the still giant

<elyaguaro> so if i pray and god is pleased i will get my str back?
<Zefnar> I think you need to be -4 STR and heavily encumbered
<Zefnar> Recommend eating poisonous corpse to lose strength and pick up your stash
<aosdict> it's very nethack for there to be "oh noes I lost strength but not *enough* strength, let me poison myself to the point of death and then try deadlifting my heaviest possessions in a dog and pony show to demonstrate to my god how pathetic and in need of help I am"
<Zefnar> shaking, sweating, coughing up blood “god, please, can you hear me now?”

<K2> (rolls natural 1) 'The bugbear lightly caresses your hair'
<K2> PavelB: not sure I like 'slap' as a hit message
<PavelB> ah ok
<K2> still thinking
<K2> but it makes me think i'm in a pillow fight or something
<LarienTelrunya> yaaaaaaaaay you should totally add monsters that throw lovely cuddly huggable heart pillows at you! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
<K2> aaaaaand we've gone over the edge
<LarienTelrunya> such a cuddly pillow ♥ "Schmusekissen" ♥
<PavelB> LarienTelrunya: Have you considered the fact that you have your own variant in which such features may be implemented
<LarienTelrunya> lol PavelB you're ruining the moment :P I'm just being silly, of course I don't really expect those features to be implemented in evilhack, but I can dream :D
<K2> LarienTelrunya slaps you with a heart pillow! You feel awkward!'

<+Crawldragon> what the fuck is a mekakushi?
<@LarienTelrunya> ah, since you're a samurai, some items have japanese names
<+Crawldragon> Oh, it's a blindfold
<+Crawldragon> So I take it you went flipping through an English-to-Japanese dictionary and just started translating random crap, right?
<@LarienTelrunya> not really, it's worse: I went ahead and put a couple item names into google translate and used whatever it came up with. No, I don't think "kurosuboboruto" is the real japanese translation of crossbow bolt. But I think it sounds fun anyway. :D
<+Crawldragon> lol
<+Crawldragon> Yeah Google sometimes decides to fuck with you and just translates the pronunciation rather than the definition, which is pretty fucking funny
<+Crawldragon> although to be fair "kurosubo" might actually be somewhat accurate because I don't think the Japanese ever independently invented their own crossbow
<@LarienTelrunya> "batoruakkusu" is another example, guess what it's supposed to be!
<+Crawldragon> "battleaxe," of course
<@LarienTelrunya> :)
<@LarienTelrunya> but figuring out what a "konchu furattona" or "torikabuto" is supposed to be is IMHO impossible unless you know Japanese.
<+Crawldragon> One of my favorite Japanese words is "supo," which is borrowed from the English word "super," and is their word for "supermarket."
<@LarienTelrunya> :D
<@LarienTelrunya> "Hello Crawlhydra, welcome to Vanzac's supo!"
<@LarienTelrunya> oh wait, I think they give another greeting to samurai
<@LarienTelrunya> what was it again? Irraishaimase or something?
<+Crawldragon> I think it's Irrahasime" or similar.
<+Crawldragon> It's one of those words that you know you're _supposed_ to know if you want to learn Japanese but god is it hard to remember when you don't know the language.
<+Crawldragon> If I don't see bento boxes I'm going to be very disappointed.
<@LarienTelrunya> also noted the bento box, so far the ice box didn't have a Japanese name but soon it will :)
<+Crawldragon> ISSU BOKKUSU!
<@LarienTelrunya> hahaha!
