Sky's BlaBla random AAR thread

when everyone is trying to cut down on their turn count, max XP, or trying to see how deep they can dive with a kobold warrior, i have instead decided to see how far i can push myself while paying absolutely zero attention to the game.

In so far, the results are not great.

Dunedain Warrior, because basically starting out with 30 DPS from a dagger is pretty cool.

First warrior died to boredom but more than that to frustration, as - despite scumming DL50 several times - i still had no speed, and TO *at all*, or even ESP. I tried to push too hard and got worn out by storm giants summoning me back for a slapping.

Second warrior, i died to equipment swap. I was so concerned with rNexus (because a vortex kicked me out of a LF 7-7 which i had cleared and was just about to grab the goods) that i forgot my amulet of trickery was also my only source of rPois .. and a great swamp wyrm breathed on me, while i was fully healed, at 600hp exactly .. bam. Dead in 1 turn.

No. I have developed a habit of relying on scrolls instead of staves, because they dont fail, they weight less, they cannot be drained, and later on you tend to pick up staves constantly so it's not unusual to see @ carrying a dozen Staff of Teleportation causing you to get slowed down.

Newest @ got killed by walking into a room with way, way too many dark elf mages + escorts (probably two spawns of the same mob group). CL25, DL28, 305hp, but ran out of !Spd, i did have a bunch of CCW left, but i had already killed so many mages that i figured there could not be many left, so i phased, and obviously phased into the worst spot.
Note that this was not a pit - just a regular room.

For me its the opposite: I rely on staves and dont carry scrolls normally. While the weight is less, staves work when confused or blinded, and since I am usually missing at least one of these protections, I dont have to worry about annoying X or more dangerous melee confusers. Without staff, the only way to esacape is a !speed and those are precious, if available at all.

When the stack weighs me down, I drop all but two.

Am I the only one who carries both for a good part of the game?

it would be nice if there was a list of which inscriptions exist and do what, instead of having to divine their existence.
