Ah, Hell, and I really thought that was going somewhere!

Bloody stupid Master Mind Flayer.

I’d got past Vlad, and everything, best bloody game I ever had (although I have to say that vast piles of Amulets of Life Saving I kept running into didn’t half help. Tyr never gave me an artefact, though. Stingy git.)

[Incidentally, I know this is a massive long post, but, meh. I’m damn proud that there’s such a long list. And I’ve cut out most of the inventory, and the entire vast contents of the happy Bag of Holding. Deal with it.]

    22,862 zorkmids? I assume you found Ludios. Did you donate to priests? I’ve never been bothered with more than 5,000 once I hit Gehennomon.

    For what did you wish? I assume there were a few bits of armour, but did you go for a magic marker? I tend to use my markers for enchant armour scrolls, and [[type]]proof all my armour. That and a bit of grease on the helmet should keep those pesky noodle-suckers off ya noggin.

    What did you genocide? My first target is always L.

    I’m not doing too badly in my current game. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  2. On July 11, 2008 Mister JTA says:

    Yeah, I try and keep in with Tyr as much as possible. Generally speaking I haul 5,000-odd out of a massive haul (if I have one; normally I don’t, but I kept stuffing all my money into the BoH and it turned out to be lots. Picked up loads in Ghennom, as well) and then drop the bag with all the money in somewhere close by. Then I give all my money to the temple, and pick up all the cash I just dropped when the Priest isn’t looking. It seems to work…

    Wished for:
    Blessed scroll of charging
    Blessed +2 rustproof Grayswandir
    Blessed +2 grey dragon scale mail
    Blessed fireproof +2 cloak of displacement (I took a couple of curses which is how it came down to 0)
    (Two) blessed amulets of Life Saving, one of which didn’t half confuse Lord bloody Sutur.

    I wanted a magic marker, but at the point when I got the wand (in the castle) I was too weak to be able to fight back up through the Big Room to Sokoban 1, which is where I’d dropped all my blank scrolls. Your plan is probably better, though!

    Genocided the Trolls, because I’d got backed into a corner in the Valley of the dead, with a troll behind me, and a) an Olog Hai in front, and also most of the soldier from the castle that brainlessly fell through the floor, and I was taking a proper beating from the regenerative gits.
