I really did get addicted to Ninja Ropes. It was severe. In fact, the only thing stopping me from getting addicted to Ninja Ropes again is my resolve, renewed daily, to not allow myself to play Ninja Ropes.

I have a weird tendency to get obsessed with unusual things and I feel strange compulsions to, for example, play Spider Solitaire for four hours straight whilst forgetting to eat. But remember, the same itchy obsession brain allows me to spend ten years crafting a graphic novel one hand-drawn page at a time. Whilst forgetting to eat.

This is the first mention of – ahem – ulfdraugar in the comic, but not the last.
