This was the game defined by eating a Westernesse (?) weapon shortly after entering the wilderness near town, followed by finding a Rod of Detection in the Thieve's Hideout, followed by scumming Camelot 1 with it-- that is, using it to avoid the really powerful looking creatures, disenchanters, and amberites, then taking on the weaker rooms and eating/collecting(/selling) loads of junk.
I maintained this momentum for a while, spending money on various survival supplies, nice (black market) weapons, and random curiosities, while learning all sorts of things about how the game works or does not.
I really need to figure out how to edit macros without using the menu tree for each keypress.

I had finished off a Yukionna, and I was tired, so I went into a vault without Detecting the whole thing, mostly because I didn't notice I hadn't. Then near the end of it I ran into Robin Hood and didn't get a turn before he took my Rod. Being tired, I proceeded to start searching the probably-still-quite-dangerous level for him in the hopes I could get it back (I don't know if it works that way, since money doesn't), when I ran into another one of the boss-like creatures of the level...shortly after running out of teleports and while tired. So there really isn't any surprise here.

sord..... will continue it's .jpeg artifacts in legend.

It also looks like I found an artifact, but I have no idea which piece of junk it is/was.

You want to *identify* all artifacts to see what they do.

Melee damage on these guys always seems pretty unimpressive given that you are a frickin animated sword

Yeah, it felt like most of the things I was /supposed/ to be fighting had better offenses/defenses than me most of the time, despite having what I thought were decent stats and good skills.
I think early Deathsword might be a lot better if you could-- as a separate ability-- get the bonuses of weapons much faster and stronger, but also simultaneously more temporarily (like that part of your bonuses going away constantly with experience).

When I was first building the game I was thinking about picking some spellcasting class for entertainment, but then discovered "monster" races can't have classes. Somehow I had missed that. It wont stop me from later pretending to be another class though...

Also, the (non-existent) flavor text and some mechanics for this combination rubbed me wrong, even though I haven't seen firsthand what the rest of the game is like.

@Hugo: That would matter a lot more if I could absorb/catch badness from weapons and if I had any use for non-weapon artifacts at all beyond eventually-- someday-- reforging.
(I should note I've heard of reforging and read the post on its' mechanics, but I have no idea what can be reforged.)

If you plan on giving Deathswords another shot, I'd strongly recommend trying the Mighty or Combat personalities - I've played several Lucky Deathswords and the early game is very rough with the stat penalties. On top of that, Deathsword stat boosts effectively top out at +6. A -2 in the core STR, DEX, CON may also be a big hindrance in the end game (I'm not certain - I think my highest level lucky Deathsword was 40).

Reforging for Deathswords is very lackluster. You don't have any weak slots to fill - you just want those tasty essences. Then again, the usefulness of items carried in stores decreases rapidly once your *KILL*s are filled out. Gold can be squandered on reforging (meh) or gambling for rods/staves to fill out a device gap (meh).

I don't really know how stats cap out, but I guess this is confirmation that you can't just keep pushing a stat to 18/**; penalties are always applied after.
I'll probably be finding out what gambling is my next Elyvilon, if it's in a town.

I don't think there's anything special about negative modifiers in the stat calculation, it's just that in the unique case of Death Swords, they only receive bonuses from a single item slot, themselves. Due to the progressively increasing essence cost for each stat bonus it is an insurmountably long grind to get a bonus past +6 (and even that is a slog).

So to get from 18/100 to 18/** requires (I think) a total of +12. For STR and CON a Death-sword gets +5 Racial, +6 Equipment, with a need for a +1 from either personality or a good New-Life re-roll. For Dex, the situation is worse, +2 Racial, +6 Equipment, personality and re-roll require +4. Hmmm... maybe Combat is the best personality.
