So Meranna mentioned on today’s show that the Radio Free Gear is no longer being made.  Apparently the new radio items have officially taken the place of the old radio gear as far as contests and giveaways go.  That’s not to say that they will never be given away, but it will probably be along the lines of DJs giving away ones that they already have, purchased or ones that have been donated by users.  Much like the Crimbo items.

As far as the Radio Button Candy goes?  NSurgnie has told me that no one knows if the DJs will continue to be given the RBCs, though ADeadHeart says she thinks that the DJs will still recieve the Radio Button Candy, but that “we all know things are subject to change.”

And as a bonus note, the three new servers are up and running!  You can now use servers six, sever or eight.  That means www6, www7, and www8.kingdomofloathing.com


Give me your heart and I’ll love you till Tuesday July 19, 2006

I’m a fan of the new area. Not only does it have an interesting monster, but the ways people are beating the monster are also pretty amusing. I won’t spoil the methods, but some of them will probably show up on the KoL Forums or at soredandsaucery within the next few days.


Rumors, planning and confirmations, oh my! July 13, 2006

GrokTheMad (#459384) has confirmed that Amp sent the new Radio KoL items out the the DJs last night, but that the items had been “in the works for nearly a year.” Thanks Grok! Everyone else I asked seemed to have missed my question. Busy, busy DJs!

And I promise that I will write that post on the new items, new inventory feature and that new mini-quest involving Doc Galaktik! Soon, I swear…

Dawn’s in trouble, it must be Tuesday. Wait, wrong fandom… July 12, 2006

The radio does not exist to give us free crap, but that doesn’t prevent us from jumping up and down if we win something. And now? Now we have more things to squeal over like the geeks some of us are! Aside from the updates and new mini-quest related content New Radio KoL items have been rolled out and I have to say they look pretty neat.

One rumor was that the new rkol items were actually introduced on July 7th in honor of Radio KoL’s second anniversary, but I hadn’t seen anything about the new items until today. I’ll try my best to figure out why this is when I was told that they were in the system on the 7th. Click the ‘more’ link to see the items.

I also apologize for this not being as entertaining as I try to make my posts, but it is two in the morning and WordPress ate my previous post on this topic. Trust me when I say that that post was funnier. (more…)

While I’m not actually in such awe that I would worship Riff Wayne’s World style, I am impressed and amused. Very, very amused. It really was a fun quest and I loved every moment of it. Granted, I didn’t know what the heck I was doing, but that was part of the appeal. I was allowed to over-think it and no one could spoil it for me. It was shiny and new!

Good going Riff, as well as anyone else who may have been involved. You may not like my wanting to have “Birch Beer” as a KoL item, but you can do a damn good quest. I’m eager to find out what else you have in store for us, even if I might regret it.

The system is down, though not exactly for nightly maintenance. That's right, something has gone wonky in the Kingdom… again. It's not horrible, but it is amusing considering KoL's past.  I asked Glebs if my Internet was acting up or if 'Jick had screwed something up again.' He replied that Jick is, of course on his honeymoon and Xeno is working on it.

Xeno and all of the Dev team seem to be wonderful people, though under-appreciated. So thanks guys. We do love to mock Jick for things like White Wednesday, and we may whine and moan about glitches but you do a great job. We get cool updates, cool items and nerfs that we get irritated about but then get over.
Speaking of updates, before KoL went down I got to play with the new 'quick skills' feature. It's actually pretty neat, you can cast skills and buffs from the top frame, as well as use MP restorers. I foresee this being very useful for peak farming, at least if you don't already use KoL Mafia.
