Incorrect Columbus Day date

Columbus Day is actually observed on October 12 in the U.S.-- though, since roll-over happens the night before, they were kind of given out on the 11th but probably meant for the 12. I'm not sure how to indicate that on this page, but as it stands the page is incorrect. Kantania 12:30, 4 February 2007 (CST)

Extra HPs formula

Initially, the wiki page said it quadruples HPs gaines when resting, but this isnt the case. I got 129 HPs and 87 MPs while resting with a blanket in my inv, in a house, with a pagoda and really good feng shui. Without the blanket, I should have got 78-80 HPs and 87 MPs. More info from different campground setups would be appreciated--Pcentella 09:14, 11 Oct 2005 (MDT)

  • I got mine at 2:23 A.M. I am HC Ocygenarian, so that apparently doesn't limit it. And it does increases HP gain while sleeping. I'd give a tentative range of +45-50 Hp per sleep. I used it once with a Bar-skin tent and no other modifiers for 69 Hp gain, and 20 Mp gain, and once with a house and no other modifiers for 88 Hp and 40 Mp --Fredward

Who? How?

To whom were these randomly given out? Like the hook, I didn't get one. Stupid Gourdcore. Oxy. --Barnaby36 16:38, 11 Oct 2005 (MDT)

  • These are actually still being given out, but nobody is sure why and to whom. Or at least, there was another handout approximately 30 minutes to an hour ago. You've still got a chance. Even if it's not a particularly large one. --Aardvark (Talk | Contribs) 17:50, 11 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • I got mine a couple days ago. Hurray! --Barnaby36 20:48, 13 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • I have been talking to lots of people in the kingdom that have started coughing and have found that as I traced the blanket that they owned back to the original owner that most of them are coughing. The coughing is about as frequent as the -hic- is when you are drunk or the -eh- when you are drinking white canadians. Has anyone else tried following the owners of the blankets? -silverwolf727 19:33, 11 oct 2005-
  • People who never recieved blankets have -cough-ed, and I did recieve a blanket and never coughed. It's still a mystery as to what is going on. But it's DEFINATELY related to the blankets, somehow. --Aardvark (Talk | Contribs) 18:43, 11 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • In a reply to a message about a cure for the disease the toot oriole said to try eating oranges. So if any of you start coughing or get some odd disease try eating oranges and post your results. -silverwolf727 18:14, 12 oct 2005-
  • Maybe you have to rest while having the blanket to contract the sickness. Also, one of my clan members has contracted a cough by simply listening to trade. So i think it may be possible to contract it by interacting with infected users. This is pure speculation however. --LiquidPhire 01:05, 12 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • If you sleep with the blanket, you get the disease. I don't know if having it in your possession in enough. I also know that spending time in chat with an infected person, you become infected but probably only through PMs. To my experience it's getting worse. On day 1, I coughed once, on day two I coughed twice and today I already coughed 4 times and the day isn't over yet (or maybe it's just the RNG today, since I also got 5 cave ins in a row). -Garath_McGrath, 13:34, 13 Oct 2005 (EST)- Try eating oranges - I'm in oxycore for at least 3 more weeks...
  • The people around the cougher seem to get infected (above and below the cough). That or else it's done by PMs. Not quite sure yet.--digitrev 16:03, 13 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • I don't think PMs have anything to do with it. I never got a blanket or a PM from anyone, and I'm coughing and grey. --prefect

What about the grey?

The messages for people who are sick are starting to turn grey like the cough. What about that?Kookie 11:27, 15 Oct 2005 (MDT)

  • Note: IE makes the color named "grey" bright green, because well, it's stupid. In any other browser "grey" and "gray" are the same color. --JRSiebz | 13:05, 15 Oct 2005 (MDT)

Should we make a KoLera page? This is seriously starting to develop into something, no? --Barnaby36 16:59, 15 Oct 2005 (MDT)

  • If there needs to be a vote, I vote yes. P.S. The last time I received a PM was before the blankets were even given out. I hung out in a very infected clan and newbie chat for a while and I ended up with a cough. --Kookie 17:12, 15 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • I agree. decide on a 'technical' name for the disease, and have all the 'common' names redirect to it.--LiquidPhire 11:37, 17 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • If you go the the bad side of the tracks and talk to the goofballs guy he will give you rose-colored glasses which take away the grayness from the chat. -silverwolf727 14:54, 18 Oct 2005-
  • In the forums, Riff mentioned "We've been referring to it as "The Gray Plague" here at KoL HQ. But, yknow, whatever floats your plague-ship." But I'm partial to "the common KoLd", hehe ;-), Kolera & Jickenpox seems to be the most used though.--JRSiebz | 00:20, 18 Oct 2005 (MDT)
  • A cure now exists for the disease. You need to go to the icy peak or the slot machines to find either a blood flower or plastic passion fruit and then take either item to Doc Galaktik's to recieve the miracle cure. -silverwolf727 15:34, Oct 18, 2005-
  • "The Gray Plague" is what it is being called by Doc Galaktik, so I took the liberty of moving the page to the official name. KoLera still redirects. --Aardvark (Talk | Contribs) 03:32, 19 Oct 2005 (MDT)


Jick has been fleshing out the holidays, with the special crimbo adventures, as well as feast of boris adventures. My theory is, the blankets, the time rifts and everything, were and are the Columbus Day KOL event. And no, it didn't just "happen" to be Colombus day, the name Jick made up for the guy giving them out was Cristobal for goodness skates! Time will tell, though. Lotusduck 18:30, 12 May 2006 (CDT)
