Many words from games set in Zork are sprinkled throughout the run of this comic, although never with the exact same meanings. Here are some examples of usage:
- Bloits: as distance between chairs.
- Dornbeast: first mention of, detailed description of.
- Filfre: referenced character.
- Frobozz: on a pencil.
- Frotz and Gnusto: referenced charcters.
- Nitfol (a recurring minor character): reappearance.
- Rezrov a gnome.
- The Gostak: mentioned here. The line about "pelling back to the bewl" definitely refs the Z-code game.
- A Modest Destiny by Sean Howard.
- MS Paint Adventures by Andrew Hussie.
- The webcomics hosted on this site use an interactive fiction-inspired format, where the plot develops through IF-style commands given to characters. Throughout most of the website's run, the webcomics' plot and the characters' actions were indeed suggested by the readers as IF-style commands, though the use of suggestions has been discontinued some time ago.
