Society of Explorers and Adventurers Wiki

Kungaloosh is a word in the S.E.A. mythos referring to an in-group greeting and several objects.


Kungaloosh was used as the official greeting for the Adventurers Club, a globe-trotting sub-faction of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, as well as by the Jungle Explorers' Society headed by Nedley Lostmore. The term was multi-purpose, similar to the Hawaiian word, "Aloha". The Adventurers Club's official credo used it in the song-lyrics and also was part of the official club-salute. Kungaloosh was also the name of a specialty drink served within the club composing of fruit-juice and rum which was served in drinking establishments affiliated with the club. There is some indication that the word and/or drink might be African in origin though in real-life the word Kungaloosh is seemingly gibberish.
