  • Is making stuff up ok? Where's the evidence for this pounds sirloin assertion? Forgive me if my ignorance is showing again. --Evilkolbot 06:26, 29 January 2006 (Central Standard Time)
  • I find it hard to believe that Jick made meat the currency of KoL by happenstance. Until I read this article, I assumed this was done on purpose to correct one of the biggest plot holes in adventure games: gold from monsters. I mean, what wolf do you know has any gold on its body to give you after it dies? It only makes sense that you should get something from monsters that monsters might actually have. Granted, it's still silly to use meat as currency, but at least it makes more sense than suddenly finding gold on the body of a White Lion Kvn8907 21:19, 27 January 2007 (CST)
  • Am I the only one who thinks this is actually just another joke? In case you're not getting it, ask yourself where your character keeps their meat. (their meat wallet, of course)--Blakat1313 03:59, 28 July 2007 (CDT)
  • What about monsters that don't have any flesh on them, like nightstands? --Corncobtrooper 20:38, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
    • They don't actually drop meat. They possess meat-wallets and coin purses that belonged to their owners, who decided to place their valuables in these possessed drawers. Argus 20:54, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Also consider monsters that do have flesh but don't drop meat, eg most of the hippies. (The business hippy does drop meat.) And the hippies are monsters from the early days of the game, unlike the expanded manor. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 22:12, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
    • (I'm kind of confused by what you're going for here, a defense or a ...whatever, but) In this instance hippies do have flesh, but they are aware of the fact that meat is currency, so they choose not to have any because of their belief of lack of meat. I believe that in general any person (Bob Racecar, Orc Frat Boys, etc etc) encountered in game is aware of the fact that meat is currency, and thus the meat you find is not their flesh but what is in their wallets.

  • Although, monsters described as obese do tend to drop more meat than average... (Beefy bats, corpulent zombies, gluttonous ghouls...) --Starwed 00:53, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Bah, despite Icon315's objections, I still think beans deserve a mention. I mean, it isn't like I'm just speculating--the in-game description for Knob Goblin Bean Counters actually mentions it. --Itsatrap 18:24, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
    • Beans have never been KoL's currency, it's just a joke on how they call accountants bean counters--Icon315 18:57, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
      • Yes, it's just a joke, but it's a joke specifically about KoL currency, which I thought was the point of this page in the first place. --Itsatrap 19:21, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
        • exactly this page is for KoL currency, actual currency.--Icon315 21:02, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
          • Fair enough. I guess I just wish you weren't so smug about it. --Itsatrap 04:35, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
