Kingdom of Loathing is a free-to-play, browser based, multiplayer role-playing game created by Asymmetric Publications.

The goal is for players to quest and explore the land until they become powerful enough to defeat the Naughty Sorceress, freeing King Ralph from her clutches. Kingdom of Loathing actually draws heavily from an old "doorway" game called Legend of the Red Dragon. Kingdom of Loathing is known for it's humor and frequent use of pop culture in its content.

Game Synopsis

As with LoRD, players have a limited number of turns each day that they can use to adventure. The amount of turns can be increased via consumption of food, booze, and special spleen items. Once the Naughty Sorceress is defeated players can chose to ascend: starting over from level 1 but in return for gaining karma. Karma is primarily used to mark specific skills as permanent, so they will always be available regardless of class choice/character level. Karma can also be used to purchase goodies for the next "run", and the game offers a variety of ways to add challenges to the next run to make things interesting. Alternately players can explore the post-ascension content, which includes several raid dungeons (clan access required but many clans open their doors for people to experience them) and other special areas.
