YAAP #6

Well there! Another Nethack ascension! This one done almost exclusivly while my daughter was sleeping, and actually was a fairly quick run given the time constraints. Of course I suck at this game compared to the really good players. I’ve seen guys ascend inside of 24 hours, when this one took me at least 3 weeks. Still my last two ascensions were characters where I took long breaks while playing, this one I never let it sit for more than a day.

Also another interesting thing is as far as I remember (looking at my records there is ONE where I can’t quite make heads-or-tails of the map) this is the first run where I had to enter all three high temples before I found the one to my God and could ascend, still thanks to judicious use of stinking cloud scrolls to wipe out priests, NPCs, and those nasty insect swarms, this astral plane was relatively easy.

I was wearing an amulet of life saving, and had two others in reserve, but I managed not to die once, tho Pestilence nearly wiped me out with his disease attack.

Here’s the file!

    ENVY.

    Next time you have a project for me, I’ll work on it but will spend the entire time asking you a zillion nethack questions 🙂

    ps: glad to see another nethack post, it’s been a while. I spent some time with it on the driod as I was stuck in airport after airport last weekend !

  2. Wally says:

    Couple of things I’d wonder about – How do you get so low of an AC? And how do you gear up for the meatgrinding melee ? How do you get “good” spells (scrolls?) to learn so you can use a marker/blank scroll (I assume?)
