Adapted from one of the many conversations that makes #rgrd the best place in the world:
The book of Hexodus tells the story of how the Rugrud people left Egypt in six different directions, each group ultimately becoming one of the Six Tribes of Roguelikes.
The first tribe holds that roguelikelikes are still roguelikes.
The second tribe settled in Berlin, and adopted a severe and aggressively conservative law under which only very few games counted as roguelikes.
The third tribe was caught in a Blizzard far to the North and lost their way, eventually falling into iniquity and the temptation of gold. Today they are known as the Aarpugs.
The fates of the remaining three tribes are left as an exercise to the reader.
Thanks to the folks at irc://quakenet/rgrd for bringing another smile into the world. You never know where a discussion that starts with defining colors might end up!
