Anonymity on the Internet has costs as well as important benefits. One cost we’ve seen here on The Brothers Brick is a commenter’s ability to hide behind complete anonymity when stating an opinion or giving feedback they think may be unpopular or controversial. Another cost is that commenters can switch between multiple identities or even “spoof” the identify of someone else.

And here’s another one we missed over the holidays. Fedde showcases his alter ego, the Necrosorcerer Karf Oolhu, “Making himself a +10 Crown of Magic Protection”:

So that’s what the Old Ones did before traversing the depths of space, only to fall asleep beneath the waves here on Earth…
