You are truly (hic) my bestest friend in this whole (hic) cursed world.

Karl is a mentally disturbed drunkard lounging around Mom's Diner in 2241.


Asking Karl about "his story" will cause him to sober up and tell a frightening tale. His farm was razed by ghosts, his crops failed, and he fled to the Den.

Effects of player's actions

It is possible to upset Karl, whereupon he refuses to talk to you about "his story". You will need to give him a beer (needs to be in your inventory), but he will pass out subsequently. When he wakes up after a few hours, Karl will be more talkative.
