KoLmafia is a Java-based app that allows you to play the web browser-based online adventure game, Kingdom of Loathing (KoL), which has been around since 2003.
The Kingdom of Loathing uses hand-drawn stick figure graphics and writing with surreal humor, wordplay, parody, and even references to popular culture.
In the Kingdom of Loathing, a player's character fights monsters for experience and acquiring meat (the game's currency), and items, through a turn-based system.
Players may also interact with each other through player versus player (PVP) competition, participate in the in-game economy by trading goods and services, organize their characters into clans, work together to complete clan dungeons and speak to each other in many different chat channels.
In the Kingdom of Loathings turn-based gameplay, a player's character is supplied with several adventures each day, at a base of 40, although this can be increased. The game day resets at a time called "rollover." Characters are allotted forty adventures every rollover, though they can increase that number with various equipment and items.
Additional adventures can be acquired by consuming food and booze. However, only a limited amount of each can be consumed each day, and drinking too much booze puts the character into a drunken stupor for the remainder of the day. During the rollover, drunkenness and fullness levels are reset, and minor amounts of health points and magic points are restored. Although a character can accumulate a large number of adventures, the number is reduced to 200 at rollover.
I could go on forever about the Kingdom of Loathing having played for many years, but it's quite simply addictive and fun. The game is, and always has been, donation-based, and you can play directly in your browser at https://www.kingdomofloathing.com.
