Trophy: Partners in Crime

http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Partners_in_Crime Does anyone know how to get this? My hunch is that you spread a klepto rumor about Cinderella and then put something in her purse. I've tried cigar (makes her go wash up), cinnamon (draws a curious glance. on the right track?) and ipeca...

*headdesk* I knew not booting WM was a mistake. A mistake I have made every day for several years in a row now :)

Re: LotsOfPhil 7/1293 BM AT - Crimbo Turngen

Before looking at anything else, that piece of advice from the wiki is the absolute worst. If you are going to eat Hell food, you go 5 mainstat.

LotsOfPhil 7/1293 BM AT - Crimbo Turngen

Hi there. This is a Crimbo-fueled Bad Moon run. But the only Crimbo-fueled stuff was turngen. So what skills I bought and such may still be of use. AT because it was my last piece of Brimstone.

Draco, can you tell me where your numbers come from? "Queue" doesn't mean a lot to me.

Yup. I just figured you expect to see one of each dude per zone. 4 zones.

Re: Ice House Strategy Discussion

No cocktail napkin (although it *barely* matters; I am being lazy and not wanting to add in a re-roll for the NC on the banish) I don't understand this. A banished monster can't result in you getting a NC (unless something on the Encounter page of the wiki is wrong). You banish the clingy pirate an...
