...that she might be a sufficient reason for young Candide

and he for her


August 25th, 2001

For anybody sad enough to care... @ 09:34 pm

Current Mood: ecstatic

Alkali the Enchantress, with a corroded, pitted Wizardbane (I'm workin' on it), silver dragon male, water walking boots, the Eye, and the bell of opening, just reached the castle. BOO-YA! First fucking time EVER I've made it this far. And I have not cheated!!!!

What?! How the fuck did you get to the castle with a corroded Wizardbane?

Why, because I'm the envoy of Balance, and as such have been blessed by my lord Thoth with the following: Blessed spellbook of Finger of Death (this one's fun now that I have the Eye. Makes 'force bolt' seem a little penny anty...) Blessed spellbook of magic mapping, and I'm telepathic, plus I've got the Eye, so my trusty towel makes exploration all but unnecessary. Now if only I could find a wand of polymorph...

my farthest adom character just bit it.

troll healer... was mowing through everything. got to this level where everything was dead... i was like "wtf is everything dead for". my corruptions had given me teleportitus.... so i popped up right next to some creature in a room... i was like "eh, no biggie, will just go pound it with big punch"

"the banshee wails! a master swordsman dies! the heart wrenching coldness grips your heart! you die..."

i was like "WTF!!!!?!?!?" i even had beeswax ready to go to plug my ears too.

oh well =)

was seriously kicking butt too, found black dragon scale mail the level before... had an eternium tower shield.... just cleared out the pyramid. i was on a roll. ah well =)

yeh, the banshee's pretty harsh. I tell you what, though, in nethack, if you've got telepathy, silver dragon scale mail, and know magic mapping and finger of death (noodge!), Medusa is a frickin' cake walk. The whole level took about 5 turns:

put on towel
map level
teleport
ZOT!
proceed to clean up random underlings and gather treasure before descending.

tough stuff.

I love wizards. I'm never playing anything else again.

update for anyone sad enough to still be following this thread: Alkali bit the dust in Hell after taking down Asmodeus, Beelzebub, AND, Jubliex. For the record, I fucking HATE 'L's, communist teleporting summoning rat fuckers. Next time I'm in the castle, I'm by god using a wish for a couple blessed scrolls of genocide. Damn right.

Yes, well, in nethack, one cannot very well learn from victories. =)

(Say, didn't you call me, and then we got disconnected, and then you didn't call again? I think I have your number, but it never occurs to me to call you until like midnight, and that's just some random lady's phone, right?, so I'm always afraid to call...)
