@ *Gulp*
The LichenThe chamber was of unhewn rock, round, as near as might
be, eighteen or twenty feet across, and gay with rich
variety of fern and moss and lichen. The fern was in
its winter still, or coiling for the spring-tide; but
moss was in abundant life, some feathering, and some
gobleted, and some with fringe of red to it.

OK, I need someone to explain a bit. Can I change the charset inside of NetHack (I don't have an executable in front of me, to look)? Or is this the charset of the computer? If the latter then I don't see why the message in panel 4 isn't "The Dichen touches you" or "The &ichen touches you." It's funny as a premise, thus a provisional 'G', but will be bumped to 'E' if I'm just not hip enough to get the joke the first time.

Ye got me. I thought it was gonna be a newt(kinds of) small animal, like a lizard, which spends most of
its time in the water.
        [ Oxford's Student's Dictionary of Current English ]

"Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."

Rated G, then immediately bumped up to E because that would be a GREAT prank to play on an experienced NetHacker.

Aaaah! What the hell is JuiblexLittle is known about the Faceless Lord, even the correct
spelling of his name. He does not have a physical form as
we know it, and those who have peered into his realm claim
he is a slime-like creature who swallows other creatures
alive, spits acidic secretions, and causes disease in his
victims which can be almost instantly fatal.

Hey, cut it out! Someone changed their rating from E to G at the same time I was rating it E. The total went from 18 E, to 18E and 1 G, and made me think I was doing it wrong. Heh!

Actually everybody rated this one "Poor", except for one generous "Mediocre" vote, but Dion fiddled with the character set.

That was AMAZING. I'm so totally going to prank a NetHacker friend of mineMade by Dwarfs. The Rule here is that the Mine is either long
deserted or at most is inhabited by a few survivors who will
make confused claims to have been driven out/decimated by humans/
other Dwarfs/Minions of the Dark Lord. Inhabited or not, this
Mine will be very complex, with many levels of galleries,
beautifully carved and engineered. What was being mined here
is not always evident, but at least some of the time it will
appear to have been Jewels, since it is customary to find
unwanted emeralds, etc., still embedded in the rock of the
walls. Metal will also be present, but only when made up into
armor and weapons (_wondrous_).

I think that because of the caption, this should technically qualify as a newt(kinds of) small animal, like a lizard, which spends most of
its time in the water.

A very slight and understated newt(kinds of) small animal, like a lizard, which spends most of
its time in the water.

joke, though. More a meta-newt(kinds of) small animal, like a lizard, which spends most of
its time in the water.

-joke. I wonder how long this comic is going to have to run before we start seeing meta-meta-newt(kinds of) small animal, like a lizard, which spends most of
its time in the water.

its time in the water.
