I think that everytime Dudley starts a game it counts as a delayed suicide. Nice comic.

Y'know... working with chars revived from bones piles would make an interesting-- oh, wait, Slash'EM and the healerI swear by Apollo the physician, and Aesculapius, and Health,
and All-heal, and all the gods and goddesses, that, according
to my ability and judgment, I will keep this Oath and this
stipulation -- to reckon him who taught me this Art equally dear
to me as my parents, to share my substance with him, and relieve
his necessities if required; to look upon his offspring in the
same footing as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if
they shall wish to learn it, without fee or stipulation; and
that by precept, lecture, and every other mode of instruction,
I will impart a knowledge of the Art to my own sons, and those
of my teachers, and to disciples bound by a stipulation and oath
according to the law of medicine, but to none others. I will
follow that system of regimen which, according to my ability and
judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain
from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. [...]

Two things:
1. What was the point of mentioning save scumming? You can get bones files anyway.
2. I don't think the word 'technically' was needed.
Otherwise, it was good. Amusing even.

No, the point is that this guy is an exact duplicate of Dudley, right down to the inventory. Y'see, you copy a save file, go down a level, die, reload the save file, go down a level, then meet the bones of yourself.

This information may or may not be useful in tomorrow's sequel strip.

By the way: as well as the fact that Dudley went and did a YASD-worthy deed, it's called "technically committed suicide" because Dudley was killed by Dudley.

I think Nameless meant that you could have just said "Dudley committed suicide" but I like it better your way.

Ah, but which Dudley was it? If PlayerThese strange creatures live mostly on the surface of the
earth, gathering together in societies of various forms, but
occasionally a stray will descend into the depths and commit
mayhem among the dungeon residents who, naturally, often
resent the intrusion of such beasts. They are capable of
using weapons and magic, and it is even rumored that the
Wizard of Yendor is a member of this species.

-Dudley killed StatueThen at last he began to wonder why the lion was standing so
still - for it hadn't moved one inch since he first set eyes
on it. Edmund now ventured a little nearer, still keeping in
the shadow of the arch as much as he could. He now saw from
the way the lion was standing that it couldn't have been
looking at him at all. ("But supposing it turns its head?"
thought Edmund.) In fact it was staring at something else -
namely a little dwarf who stood with his back to it about
four feet away. "Aha!" thought Edmund. "When it springs at
the dwarf then will be my chance to escape." But still the
lion never moved, nor did the dwarf. And now at last Edmund
remembered what the others had said about the White Witch
turning people into stone. Perhaps this was only a stone
lion. And as soon as he had thought of that he noticed that
the lion's back and the top of its head were covered with
snow. Of course it must be only a statue!

-Dudley, he still 'committed suicide'. .. But seeing as we can see a gravestone, we can probably assume it's playerThese strange creatures live mostly on the surface of the

Wow, I can almost see this happening in the game...
er. Can this happen in the game?

this one is damned hilarious! shakespeare could have made a play about that kind of irony... except that he would have been too addicted to nethack to bother wasting time writing plays.
