Sock 2

Trickymages are cute, eh? I designed all these monsters totally by myself using a neat little application called "Idraw" which I originally picked up to design sprites for RPG Maker. Thanks to the people who are responsible for that program! It makes things super-easy to palette-swap, too, and I get a secretly too-large amount of joy from making "harder-coloured" enemies.

Today's Tips:

  • It's happened several times before, and so this is just a small warning to a lot of you: Stockpiling points can be extremely dangerous! Yes, there's a free game waiting at 5000, but one tragic hit could leave you in terrible pain. Gravity Spells, Warp Stones, instant death attacks... they're all huge dangers! So beware.
  • Some of you are getting discouraged as you see other players vault into the twenties and even thirties in terms of levels. Remember, though, that like any other RPG, experience available only increases as the game continues. One lucky kill, and you could be right back into the swing of things. Besides, just because you have a high level doesn't mean that you'll win the game.

And thus we begin.

Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game.

Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too.
