Clvl: 29
Body: Cyclops
Location: Bree
52nd Yavie / 2890th year / 3rd Age / 9:23 PM
Play session duration: approx 2 hours

Green naga (clvl 8 - 10)
-> Red naga (clvl 10 - 11)
-> 2-Headed hydra (clvl 11 - 24)
-> The wounded bear (clvl 24)
-> 2-Headed hydra (clvl 24 - 25)
-> Mature bronze dragon (clvl 25 - 27?)
-> Cyclops (clvl 27? - now)

I wanted to see if I remember how to play ToME. So, I started this brand new Spectre Troll Loremaster (PosChengGroove) with Possessor + Barehanded Combat intentions from scratch...Here we go!. Although this took me maybe a good 2 hours or so to get to clvl 29 and possess a Cyclops like right now, I finally got my ToME2 groove back WITHOUT DYING ON FIRST TRY!!!!

I had a rough start at the beginning. I had to remember TWO BIG features of ToME2:
1) I had to adjust the TACTICS and EXPLORATION modes via the 'C'haracter screen to make my '@' guy faster and hit harder.
2) More importantly - ToME2 required me to put in skill points to be able improve Combat and/or Bare-handed fighting AND increase chances of monsters dropping corpses AND Possession abilities, as intended.

To start, I did the Thieves quest (This one is a bit different than PosChengband's). And part-way through the quest, I remembered to make some adjustments to the tactics and exploration. My re-adjustment issues didn't stop there. After finishing the Thieves quest, I sought and possessed a Green naga. HOWEVER, ToME's nagas move erratically unlike PosChengband's, proving to be a nuisance. I eventually scored a 2-Headed hydra's corpse at clvl 11, after repeated attempts, and possessed it afterwards. (That Corpse-preservation is a big deal in ToME!). The 2-Headed Hydra was quite durable: it had lots of AC and it hit *hard*. I took him to the mountainous area near ToME's Angband and leveled up to about clvl 25. After that, I sought and got a Mature bronze dragon's corpse and possessed it. Then, I got myself and possessed a Cyclops after blasting it with Confusion breaths. And to those who don't know, ToME's Cyclops are susceptible to Confusion as monsters (but are not that susceptible when you possess them!).

As a Cyclops, I'm a big-time melee powerhouse with lots of resistances (Acid, Fire, Cold, Poison) with a huge AC, *VERY* fast speed, *hard* hitting melee, and decent HP. I went ahead to take down the home quests in Minas Anor, Lothlorien, and Gondolin. Then, I took down Eol's quest with this *HUGE* suprise: I found a Fur Cloak of Air and Eol's corpse during the Eol quest...WOW!!!!

All ToME veterans know that the Cloak of Air is a HUGE END-GAME asset for Void ventures!

And ToME's version of Eol's corpse is WWWWWAAAAAAYYYYYYY more powerful than the PosChengband version.

Key finds:
1) The Ring of Dormendor (+4) {Near Angband entrance, Mature blue dragon}
2) a Dwarven Lantern of the Magi (+2) -Eol's quest reward
3) a Fur Cloak of Air [3,+7] {Eol quest}
4) Eol, the Dark Elf's corpse {clvl 29; corpse-preservation 32.5}

Having found the the awesome Eol corpse + Cloak of Air like that, I'm taking a break.

At this point, I can run this Possessor (and maybe create other characters) and compare them to the PosChengband way of things.

Stats to accompany PosChengGroove at the 52nd Yavie / 2890th year / 3rd Age / 9:23 PM mark:
Currently at clvl 29 possessing a Cyclops doing 128-408 barehanded damage with AC 183, +17 Base Speed, 302 HP, 13 SP, and 164 Sanity.

Again, this is ToME, not PosChengband!
