This took quite a few tries and ended up being pretty crazy. 10K turns would be really nice... O! That way madness lies; let me shun that.

Ms Snork (with apologies to moomin fans) had a very unusual Angband experience. At 250' she clobbered Bullroarer and pried Anguriel from his cold, dead hands. This was her to be her weapon all the way to 5000': it gives SI, FA, +3 speed, does decent damage... and aggravates. To be honest, I don't really understand how she survived, though part of the trick was to push Int as high as possible and wear two +3Int rings for a while. Snork only got other +speed equipment at 4900' (Staff of Speed at 3650'), Telepathy around 4300' (bought from a store), first wand of TO at 3350' (rod slightly earlier).

Aggravating everything and being pretty slow was interesting and made it a rather unusual game. Certainly not your typical rogue.

Good job!

I havent played in a while; my latest attempts promised to beat my old best, but were not good enough for #1, so I discontinued them. One actually would have been good enough if only he had found a -to. Alas.

Winning with aggravation is amazing! How on earth did you ever get any items ?

You still have 10 more days to try to break 10k turns. I've given up at this point...

I don't think I'll try 10K. I really need a R*[Enter].

Thanks. Playing with aggravation was weird, and with this crazy rushing it also all feels a bit of a blur. Having high Int (I started with putting max number of points in it and wore Int ring when I found them) lets you fairly quickly get about 60-70SP, at which stage (with regen) you can object detect / reveal monsters / recharge pretty much at will. So Snork basically ran away from most things post-2000', before getting TO, and then TO'd lots of things instead. I remember that she got the boots of speed from a graveyard on 4950' by using Mass Banishment - it was a gamble, but worked surprisingly well.

On the topic of aggravation, I actually found trying to go for crazy turncounts fun because it forced me to do things that I otherwise probably never would. When you have so few items at your disposal, you have to use everything you can. I've had a character about to die from wounds/poison (and out of healing) who, desperate by this stage, asked herself what she had in her pocketses and found a not-yet-squelched ring of Open Wounds that saved her. I had another wearing the crown of Beruthiel for the ESP (gives massive stats penalties). Another was running around with the Mattock of Nain on 4950' for the digging capability (had no Stone-to-Mud). Another was eating mushrooms of second sight in the final fight to get telepathy. Many characters used Earthquake and loads of wands, that I never seriously used before. Several got much-needed exp for the early hounds; it's not often one is actually happy to see these creatures. A couple deliberately read Summon Monster early on in the hope of getting something decent out of a summoned unique. And this last one was aggravating everything from 250' all the way to Morgoth. The list is long...

Yeah I also have switched to maxing int. Im hoping for the jackpot of a plentiful stack of deep descent scrolls at the black market. Those are also ideal for town visits, as you dont have to wait for recall to kick in.

On 21.6.2018 19:28 bron wrote:
Estie - if you're using forced descent, you don't have to wait for recall to kick in. Taking the down stairs at the town level acts as a recall. Sometimes Deep Descent can be faster than walking over to the stairs though ..

Estie - that's an unusual notion of "jackpot". ;)
(I understand what you mean, though. I've been wishing for deep descent at the black market too.)

bron - I think one of the main reasons to go with Rogue in this crazy setting is that it lets you (ab)use Object Detection on an up/down staircase, which you can't do with forced descent. Also, Staff of Mapping + recharge (once you have plenty of SP and regeneration) lets you find stairs pretty quickly, and possibly faster than recalling to town and going down the stairs.

Bring back create stairs? That actually makes sense for a rogue spell.

Hadn't thought about stair abuse. Rogues have pretty much exactly the right set of spells to make that work well.
