January 09, 2011

  • The range of possible adventures you can get from a lot of foods has been tightened.

January 11, 2011

January 12, 2011

  • The old semi-rare adventures have been added into the new Friars' zones. Sorry that took so long.

January 13, 2011

January 14, 2011

  • With even less fanfare than usual, the CRIMBCO building has faded back into the mists completely.

January 20, 2011

  • Hey, remember like three years ago when we put in that placeholder quest in the Deep Fat Friars' Gate? We finally replaced it with a thing that isn't a placeholder!

    You can play through the new quest even if you've already gotten your Organ of Steel.

January 31, 2011

  • So as to set expectations low after an auspicious start to 2011, February's Item-of-the-Month will be at least a day late.

February 01, 2011

February 02, 2011

  • There's a new, WAY less horrible version of the Account Menu (now called Options) and some new interface features:
  • A Quest Tracker in the character pane -- (new accounts have had this for a while.)
  • The ability to add additional icons to the new iconic top menu.
  • Pulverize in the item right-click menu.
  • /pulverize as a chat command. (/smash also works.)

February 03, 2011

  • Susie has been doing some soul-searching, and has decided to open her heart a little. The Cake-Shaped Arena will now give prizes after 5 wins instead of 10, and no longer has a chance to give lead necklaces when it could give better prizes instead.

February 09, 2011

  • Dates for KoL Con 8 have been announced. It'll take place September 9-11, 2011. See what details there are here.

February 23, 2011

  • The Traveling Trader is back to raise a little more Hell.

February 28, 2011

  • February did it again -- we're hard at work an an unadvisably ambitious Item-of-the-Month, and it'll be a couple of days late.

March 02, 2011

March 07, 2011

  • Xlyinia is no longer with the company, as of today. We thank her for six years of service and wish her the best of luck in future endeavors. We'll be working to make this transition mostly invisible to you guys.

March 08, 2011

  • There are stirrings of activity in Cell 37 of the Cobb's Knob Menagerie...

March 17, 2011

March 31, 2011

  • Forewarned is forearmed -- we've gotten busier than we expected with lots of things, so the April IotM will be released at rollover on Sunday Monday night.

April 04, 2011

  • April's Item-of-the-Month is (FINALLY) available in Mr. Store.

April 15, 2011

  • The Cyrpt, in its turn, has been vamped again.

April 18, 2011

  • Fixed a bug that was letting the Cyrpt sub-bosses show up after being defeated because of Teleportitis. Stupid teleportitis.

April 20, 2011

  • There now an account option to stop displaying that moldy-ass pumpkin you've had on your profile for so long.
  • Uncle CDM has brought us Christmas early this year, in the form of a cool inventory overhaul. The inventory, closet, and Hagnk's now all have a unified interface.

    In the Options menu, you'll find "Turn On Advanced Filtering and Sorting," which will... turn on advanced filtering and sorting options for your bewildering array of items.

    Also, there are some new chat commands: /closet, /uncloset, and the oft-requested /pull.

April 24, 2011

April 25, 2011

April 30, 2011

  • We need some more time to put the finishing touches on the Item-of-the-Month -- we'll roll it out Monday night instead of tonight.

May 02, 2011

  • May's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store, and boy is it swell! Golly gee.

May 03, 2011

  • Because of OMINOUS FOREBODING, the Badger, Llama, Pixie, and Sandworm will now drop their goodies more reliably. Scared yet?

May 10, 2011

  • Corman is back, and he's attacking Valhalla! In launching his assault, he has opened a number of unstable Astral Slashes in the Kingdom, and the Air Warriors of Loathing, led by the recently promoted Admiral Hagnk, need you!

May 12, 2011

  • Due to a dumb bug that caused some people to get way too many A. W. O. L. commendations, we've had to nuke them all. The next time you kill some skeletons, you'll be given the proper number of commendations, and all will be well with the world. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Corman's invasion of Valhalla continues to build in intensity! A. W. O. L. has stepped up their game by finally appointing a commendation quartermaster.

May 13, 2011

May 14, 2011

  • The giant garbage is now clickable for jokes and clues about the level 10 quest. Clicking the grounds will plant a bean if you have one.
  • Corman has unveiled his ultimate weapon. It's pretty ultimate.

May 16, 2011

  • By popular request, limited edition Bone Star T-shirts are now available for pre-order in the Store of Loathing.
  • Rollover will be longer than usual tonight. Don't panic.

    On second thought, totally panic. Panic sounds like fun.
  • At long last, the tens of thousands of torpedoes destroyed Corman's Bone Star. A big explosion, a deafening bang, an inexplicable expanding ring of energy edited in several years later.

    There was great celebration in Valhalla. Jolly tunes were played with drumsticks on the skulls of fallen skeletal warriors.

    Then the leftover chunks of the station began to fall. All of the buildings that were still standing, well -- they stopped standing once they got hit by a million tons of flaming bone chunks.

    Fortunately, in Valhalla, a thousand years is as one day, so as far as you know, they instantly rebuilt everything. Better. Stronger. Faster. More animated.

May 31, 2011

  • Tomorrow will be the last day to pre-order Bone Star T-shirts from the Store of Loathing.
  • June's Item-of-the-Month is likely to be a few days late. In other news, future months will start on the 4th, to make it seem like we're on time for stuff.

June 03, 2011

  • June's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store. It mostly comes at night. Mostly.

  • After a sudden and unexpected several hour break, the servers are back to servin'. Sorry for the inconvenience. Darned spiders.

June 28, 2011

  • Another day, another catastrophic unexpected bout of downtime.

    We are back, but be gentle. Things might be a little bumpy.
  • The Council of Loathing advises citizens not to panic about the pile of "database servers" that seems to have fallen from the sky and landed in Seaside Town.

  • The various entrance challenges have been replaced with a frosted mini-quest for each Guild.

July 22, 2011

  • Hey, check out this thing -- Mr. Skullhead has written a series of Kingdom of Loathing comic books and has found a super groovy artist.

    In order to make sure there's enough interest to actually make it into a real thing, we've launched this Kickstarter thingy.

    If you like comic books and you like Kingdom of Loathing, why not head over and like both of those things at the same time.

August 01, 2011
