Taking on MattB's Fists Only Challenge

My second attempt at taking up MattB's challenge - @ uses only fists. No archery, no throwing, no weapons, no attack rods except TO, no staves that affect monsters, no wands that affect monsters except TO, no dragon breath potions and no aggressive activations whatsoever. Just fisticuffs, in honor of Ronda Rousey. Hmmm, I wonder, can I armbar Morgoth?

Almost halfway down now. Taking a pause to get a ruling on the use of ?Banishment, ?*Mass Banishment* and ?Destruction*.

Oh absolutely! The banish spells don't actually harm the monsters (in my mind, anyway). And destruction is the ceiling and floor doing the damage. Or something.

Come to think of it, does destruction actually damage monsters, or just banish them? I've never really noticed.

Destruction is just a big earthquake.

It banishes them -- they're removed from the level. Destruction just also banishes uniques (and is the only way to do so short of precision earthquakes that leave them no open tiles to "dodge" into), as well as turning the dungeon into cheese.

That's alright, then. No harm done (as it were).

DL 62 was big! After a long phase and teleport battle, Ar-Pharazon dropped Cubragol. @ may not be able to shoot with it, but the speed bump is mighty welcome!

DL 67 Kavlax drops both Thranduil and Dor-Lomin! Still worried about rNexus and rPoison though...

Well, I've taken the plunge to DL 98. Trying to level up to increase HP and make what other improvements I can. Still don't have rNexus, which is worrisome.

And the challenger has won a chance at the Title Bout! http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=17057

Killed Khamul and Vargo then made the mistake of taking on Ungoliant. In the end she went down, but it cost Ronda a lot of consumables. Nonetheless, our trusty Olympic Juduko turned Ultiimate Fighter mixed martial artist went on to challenge Sauron for a chance at the title bout with the Big Boss.

Sauron went down to a final shot to the kidney in the 3rd round. Here is a recap of the action:

Round 1:

Ronda quaffs !Enlightenment and prepares a small anti-summoning closet to fight in, so it will only be the two fighters in the Octagon.

TO Witch-King and Sauron closes with Ronda for battle.
!Speed and !rHeat and the fight commences.
Round 1 Compubox punch statistics: 92 landed, 125 thrown - 74% with 51 damage per punch. !Healing 5, !*Healing* 1.
Sauron teleports away.

Round 2:

TO Gothmog (twice), Pazuzu, and Dwar (twice)
!CCW x3, !Speed and !rHeat and round 2 begins.
Round 2 Compubox punch statistics: 102 landed, 148 thrown - 69& with 51 damage per punch. !Healing 3, !*Healing* 1, as well as !Healing 2, !CCW, an !Enlightenment lost to ice bolts.
Sauron teleports away.

Round 3:

kill Stone Giant, Gallant and Barbazu. TO Dwar
!rHeat and round 3 is joined.
Round 3 Compubox punch statistics: 42 landed, 56 thrown - 75% with 51 damage per punch. !Healing.
Sauron fell to one last punch to his kidneys, but only dropped a worthless ego Great Hammer and the Cloak of Thingol.
TO Horned Reaper.

Final Compubox numbers: 236 landed, 329 thrown - 72% with 51 damage per punch. !Healing 9, plus 2 destroyed; !*Healing* 2, !CCW 3, plus 1 destroyed.

Not too bad! I really wish punches at least had some chance at a critical hit, then Compubox would have had some power-punches to report. Didn't calculate Sauron's stats.

Now I must consider whether I've got enough for the Championship Title Bout. If I could only figure out a way to wear Dor-Lormin and also see if a second =Damage could be better than =Vilya.
