Mr. Store

Mr. Store is a high-class store in Market Square. Mr. Shopkeeper doesn't deal in such piffling currency as Meat; instead shoppers trade in Mr. Accessories to buy things. In addition to the regular offerings, there is a Special of the Month which changes monthly.


Mrshopkeeper.gif Hi there. I'm Mr. Shopkeeper, and this is Mr. Store. Here, you can trade Mr. Accessories and Uncle Bucks for other groovy stuff. You can get some Mr. Accessories by donating or subscribing to support The Kingdom of Loathing.
You have <X> Mr. Accessories to trade.
You have <X> Uncle Bucks to trade.

Yearly Offerings

Mr. Store has two familiars for sale at the cost of two Mr. Accessories. One of them increases item drops like a Baby Gravy Fairy and increases meat drops like Leprechaun, and the other increases stat gains from combat like a Blood-Faced Volleyball and increases meat drops like Leprechaun.

From Mr. Store's founding in 2004 until 2011, these familiars would be available for one year, from early October one year until early October the next year. Beginning in January 2012, these familiars now rotate at the start of the year, and they each have a new ability; the Fairy/Leprechaun also drops items which unlock additional content, and the Volleyball/Leprechaun drops consumables which give adventures for spleen.

Notes

  • Players making donations through a subscription may choose to receive the Item of the Month directly, which will be kmailed to them by SubscriptionBot, usually about a day before it is released into Mr. Store.
  • While in Hardcore, players who have one or more Mr. Accessories in Hagnk's Ancestral Mini-Storage may pull them out of storage in order to spend them in Mr. Store. They can not be equipped in Hardcore. If they drop Hardcore that day, they will find that these pulls have counted against their 20-pull limit.
  • While in Hardcore, players can place Mr. Store familiars into their Familiar-Gro™ Terrarium and put books into their Mystical Bookshelf. However, trying to equip a Mr. Store item while in Hardcore results in the following message:
    You can't equip your <item name> while in Hardcore mode.
  • In a Zombie Slayer run, Mr. Shopkeeper has changed (but the store is still open):
Mrkeeper z.gif Braaaaains. Traaaade. Mr. Graaaaagh.

History

  • On each anniversary of Mr. Store before 2011, both the Blood-Faced Volleyball/Leprechaun-type hatchling and the Leprechaun/Fairy-type hatchling were replaced with new, but functionally identical familiars. The yearly offerings for 2012 gained extra new abilities, and were released on New Year's day.
    • An exception to this is the Dancing Frog, which has an alternative equipment allowing it to breathe underwater.
  • On January 31st, 2007, Jick released the February Item-of-the-Month early. This resulted in both January's and February's items being available for one day.
  • Prior to the implementation of Your Mystical Bookshelf, when used, the Tome of Snowcone Summoning, Grimoire of Hilarious Object Summoning, and Libram of Candy Heart Summoning each granted skills that were automatically marked as Hardcore Permanent (HP). As such, these skills would be retained through all ascensions, with the exception of Bad Moon. Under the Bad Moon sign these skills remained listed in the account's character page, but could not be accessed from the skills menu.
  • On April 1, 2009 the tiny costume wardrobe appeared in the Mr. Store with the message "NOTE: This item will appear in Mr. Store every April 1 from now on." This promise was fulfilled every subsequent year through 2013.
  • In July of 2010, when the Juju Mojo Mask was introduced, the glowing frisbee was left in Mr. Store for an additional week due to the Game Grid Arcade's unfinished state.
  • On September 18, 2012 the Monster Manuel appeared in the Mr. Store with the message "A new item has been added (permanently) to Mr. Store. Monster Manuel, who will help you gather interesting facts and boring statistics about the monsters you encounter."
  • On April 9, 2013, the layout was changed from a row-style to the current format.
  • June 2013's item of the month stayed until 2 hours before rollover on July 3rd, 2013, due to them having no internet.
  • July 2013's item of the month stayed an extra day, because they were busy from making the new clan dungeon Dreadsylvania.
  • The familiars of the year of 2014 were delayed until 12:27 PM (Arizona time) January 20th, 2014, due to the Asymmetric Team being "slack-ass slackers".
  • The June 2014 item of the month was delayed 2 days.
  • The August 2014 item of the month was delayed until 2:07 PM (Arizona time) August 1st, 2014.
  • On December 1st, 2014, Jick released the December Item-of-the-Month late. This resulted in both November's and December's items being available for one day.
  • Starting December 02, 2014, this notice was added below Mr. Shopkeeper's introduction (where X is the days until December 07, 2014):
    BREAKING NEWS: To help pave the way for a slight restructuring of Mr. Store, sales of the Ms. Accessory will be discontinued in X days. Get it while you can, if you want it for some reason.
  • Also starting December 02, 2014, this line was added in a new paragraph below Ms. Accessory's description (where X is the same number as above):
    Only X days left to get one!
  • On December 7th, 2014, with the discontinuation of Ms. Accessory, Uncle Bucks were added to the Store, which are obtainable with $1 donations. Sister Accessory and Boosty Juice were also added as a permanent offering to Mr. Store, which are payable in Uncle Bucks. Mr. Store also added the function to convert Mr. Accessories into Uncle Bucks (and vice versa). The Mr. Shopkeeper introduction was changed from:
    Hi there. I'm Mr. Shopkeeper, and this is Mr. Store.
    Here, you can trade Mr. Accessories for other groovy stuff.
  • The text prior to the discontinuation of Ms. Accessory was:
    Just like a Mr. Accessory, only it's a lady!
  • Also on December 7th, 2014, Mr. Accessory Jr. and Fly-By-Knight Heraldry form received a price reduction, both its costs going from 1 Mr. Accessory to 5 Uncle Bucks, albeit with the Heraldry form no longer having a Buy One, Get One Free deal:
    Entitles the bearer (or somebody else) to a Custom Title.

    BUY ONE GET ONE FREE
  • February 2015's IotM came out in the middle of the day February 2.
  • On February 21, 2015, the Mr. Store image was changed. The old image was:
Mrstore.gif
  • On October 28, 2015, it was announced that the November 2015 IotM would be released on the 2nd, and IotMs would, in general, no longer be released on weekends. This made official a policy that had been in place unofficially (only mentioned on the radio show) for several months.

  • In the Mel Brooks film Spaceballs, the bridge of Dark Helmet's SpaceBall One had all of the important systems (Radar, Coffee, Rental) labeled as "Mr. [System]", which is itself a reference to the brand Mr. Coffee.
