My Collection


Somehow I'm collecting stuffed Hodgmen. This is my story.

For many years I ignored the whole collecting concept as irrelevant to me. I dove into Hobopolis when it was brand new and the very first time I killed Hodgman he dropped a stuffed version of himself. I thought that was hilarious. The stuffy was weirdly cute and funny and said amusing things when I used it, so I just adored it. I left it in my inventory and thought nothing more about it, although I did often pull his string to make him speak.

Then two days later I fought Hodgman, the Hoboverlord for a second time and he dropped a another stuffed Hodgman! Wow. A bit later I scored a stuffed Hodgman as part of my share in a whackin' stick run and I finally decided to accept it as a sign. Since then I've devoted myself to collecting these adorably wacky little guys.

I don't know why, but they're just so quirky and funny that I cannot resist them. I am always happy to purchase them so send me an offer if you're selling. I'm very proud of my collection of Hodgies and am always glad to increase it, though I often wince when I think of how much meat I've spent on them. Every now and then kind people have gifted me with Hodgies for which they have earned my gratitude and a mention here.

My KoLmafia scripts

I've made a few scripts that are useful to the KoLmafia community:

  • Universal recovery: An improvement to KoLmafia default restoration logic.
  • clanhop: Quick CLI command to switch clans. Makes whitelist swapping fast and convenient.
  • chamois.ash: Automatic chamois usage for the Slime Tube.
  • OCD Inventory Control: Inventory management made simple to save me time at the end of each ascension.
  • newLife: Sorts out all of KoLmafia's choice adventure settings for my new character class and takes care of simple tasks I do every ascension.
  • AdventureAdvisor: Safe adventuring advice PLUS.
  • CounterChecker: Handle automatic counter adventuring, primarily semirares, dance cards and wormwood.
  • Rainbow Gravitation: Rainbow Gravitation made easy in hardcore: transmutes elemental wads automatically.
  • campground: Improved Telescope information in the relay browser for easy use.


Here are some tables and diagrams of information that I cannot seem to remember. I decided to collect them for ease of usage.
