Well, I suppose having your neighboring countries belittling both your army and your intelligence would put you in a rather bad mood. Though really, you'd think a king would have better things to do than having a bunch of random people attempt to make him laugh. Oh well, just means more potential Neopoints for you!

King Skarl
You'd better not disturb me during lunch though.

Put in your best effort to amuse King Skarl, the grumpiest of kings, and if he's entertained, you may be rewarded!

Outcomes

It seems that King Skarl's sense of humor is rather strange. In fact, it's completely random which reaction he'll have to your attempts of entertainment (the points he awards you also don't seem to fall in any regular pattern). The jokes don't even have to make sense and he can be in hysterics! Below outlines the possible responses and any awards from him pondering your joke.

Hysterics

Flavor Text: You've done it! King Skarl is in hysterics!

Skarl: *hehehehehe* That was a really great joke! I give it a XXX out of 1000.
You're brilliant! You must take this gift from me.

Reward: This is most difficult reaction to receive from the greedy tyrant, but he'll reward you nicely. For your humor you will receive one of the following only-obtainable-from-the-Grumpy-Old-King items, a few hundred Neopoints, potentially also one of the Chuckle items, and you may also randomly be awarded an avatar if you tell the right joke (with any punchline.)

Blumaroo Court Jester

Blumaroo Court Jester / Guide

Awarded randomly when you make King Skarl laugh by telling him the following joke: "What do you do if *blank* fierce Peophins *blank* has eaten too much *blank* tin of olives?" (The answer can be anything).

Released: January 27, 2004


Chuckle

Flavor Text: Well looky there... You got a chuckle out of him.

Skarl: *heh* That was a pretty good joke. I give it a XXX out of 1000.
Here, have a little something from my kitchen. I hope you like it.

Reward: Here he'll reward you with something from the kitchen, and sometimes he'll add a few NP to your prize. The items you can receive are shown below.


No Effect

Flavor Text: Drat! It looks like your joke had no effect on the Grumpy Old King.

Reward: No items, but maybe some Neopoints if you're lucky:

Skarl: Well, thanks for trying...
I'll give you XX Neopoints for the effort.


Worst Joke Ever

Flavor Text: Uh Oh... Now you've done it!

Skarl: That was the worst joke ever! I give it a XXX out of 1000!
Leave my kingdom now! *Grrrrrrrr*

Reward: Skarl may be angry, but you will be awarded the Moody Avatar.

Skarl - Moody

Skarl - Moody / Guide

Get thrown out of the castle when telling King Skarl a joke.

Released: July 30, 2004


Bonuses

Occasionally you can get lucky and will randomly be awarded a 10x bonus of neopoints. (Thanks to sahransoot for this tip.)

Flavor Text: He also gives you XXX Neopoints (including a 10x bonus)!

This bonus is possible for any outcome other than a Worst Joke Ever response.

Breaks

Skarl2

Like his brother King Hagan, the grumpier of the two needs regular breaks. You won't find Skarl on his throne at the hours of 8-9AM NST, 1-2PM NST and 7-8PM NST. Come back later to try your luck!
