Kipple. It's.. Stuff.

Uses

Give 1 Million to Captain Solo in Space to be taken to the Neutral Zone.

Kipple cannot be Transmuted into gold.

Where to get it

You can Consider it for 1AP, and you end up with more. The amount it increases depends on how much you have. You can consider it at any time, even if you only have one.

If you Consider too many times without doing anything else, you get this message:

Hmmm... you have more than you thought!
Boooorring.

Are you sure you weren't under the effects of other stuff (like mushroom, fungal spray, etc) ?--Solune 11:35, 30 December 2007 (GMT)

For each 20 Kipple you have, you gain one more per consideration.

Therefor, one can expect a pile of kipple to double with ~14.2 considerations (of course, you can't have an actual .2 consideration, so you'll have to do 15 to get over the doubling mark. There are possibly more errors by rounding in small piles of kipple). Azuaron 15:21, 16 October 2007 (BST)
I increased by 1 kipple per consideration until I reached 50. Now I'm increasing by only 2 per consideration. And all the dumps are empty now. I may never reach the neutral zone! Brandy 17:02, 2 January 2010 (BST)
OK, maybe not, an hour or so of considering did give me a million! Once it starts, it does roll right along! Brandy 00:16 3 January 2010 (BST)

To get your first Kipple you have to persuade (or pay) someone who has kipple to give you 1 (or more). - Or you can drop past one of the Earth city dumps- there are millions of them there! -Kressida 04:50, 8 October 2007 (BST)

Kipple is at its most meaningful when measured in millions; for instance, 1,000,000 kipple is a trip to Neutral Space, 20,000,000 produces 1,000,000 per Consideration (a kipple-farm), and 400,000,000 produces 20,000,000 to give to other people (thus, a kipple-farm-farm.) Because such high numbers are necessary, kipple shall henceforth be measured in Mkipples, or "megakipples." (Mk for short.)

Infinite Kipple

At some point above 1e308, your kipple becomes infinite. You can then give away any amount of kipple below 1e308 and have it not affect your kipple. Beware, if you give away 1e309, it will give away your infinite store. If you give someone 1e308 twice, they will have infinite kipple.

To get this much kipple while starting at 1 kipple, it would require (approximately) 14,541 considerations. Azuaron 16:19, 15 December 2007 (GMT)
Taking (inf) kipple from a guild hoard gave me (inf) kipple and left (nan) kipple in the hoard. Putting 1e308 kipple into the hoard left me with (inf) kipple, and 1e308 kipple in the hoard. Putting 1.2e308 kipple into the hoard left me with (inf) kipple, and (inf) kipple in the hoard. --Greycat 01:07, 23 June 2008 (BST)
