Thanks to a certain Wilma, I've had an abundance of time on my hands the past few days. And I'm gloriously happy after not having power for five days. So why not squander it with another Sang character?

Zephyrus is around 2800', currently he has a quest for a ridiculous number of planetars. Hopefully their holy light attacks don't wipe him out in one shot.

Been really using the Recharge talent a lot, though it has a bug or two that I've already mentioned to Leon. I had the *ultimate* wand (wand of doomblasts!) for a short while, and then a mistype of a key when I was recharging other wands lead me to blow it up. Without it, a quest for 24 or so ancient gold dragons was considerably harder.

The most interesting thing to happen to this character happened far earlier, when in search for bonus experience for wielding new items, he put on an amulet of woe (-2 to all stats). Didn't realize this amulet was available as low as it was, nor that it came with a heavy curse. No *remove curse* scrolls were anywhere to be found. The +4 amulet of int I had recently found was going to have to wait. So, with a third of the spell points I had before (down to around 50 some odd from around 150), I frantically searched levels hoping to find a *RC* scroll. Eventually all my scrounging lead to a little cash, which I kept dumping into both the Temple and the Potion/Scroll shop, not sure which might end up carrying it if I beefed their inventory high enough (the newest versions of Sang allow you to invest money directly into the shop, leading to the shopkeeper to start stocking good stuff, however, just how much money and how much time isn't readily obvious without source diving. It's neat though, the shopkeeper greetings to you change as you get more in their graces.).

Oh. And to compound things, I had recently eaten a mania mushroom, which if you've played Sang at all you're probably intimately familiar with it--thousands of turns of variable speed (-10 to +10). A quest for mature confusion breathing dragons led to a hairy moment where I really should have died: 3 of them converging on me, I'm at under 100 hits, at -6 speed thanks to the mushroom, and probably one good breath away from death. I can't just teleport away because I've got no staff of teleport, and I'm confused. So I drink a CCW potion, expecting to the see the tombstone when one of them breaths again, and I think I had to do that a few times just to get the confusion to stop happening, and then I finally got away, knowing that I was *extremely* lucky. Haven't had any close calls to that magnitude since.

Best moment so far: pouring out a ton of uses of a Staff of Holiness after digging into the side of a demon pit. Netted about 86 thousand experience from them all, hence my high spellcasting and wizardry lore levels.

Got the 2nd highest book from a quest reward, and it has some neat spells in it: a couple auras (frost/fire) that enhance their respective element's spell damage if they are being used. Pretty neat. Wish I could find a good damage spell somewhere, but until then my main arsenal is the wand of drain life and staff of holiness, if I can't just kill it outright with Orcrist or weaker spells.

If I survive that Planetar quest, given their drops, I should have some better kit to report for the next dump. Wish me luck.

Umm, between holy lances and light balls, you may find yourself wanting a new quest. When I tried a planetoar quest, I returned to town twice to get res light (first kit didn't work well). I eventually cheesed it with anitsummoning corridors and ignite blaze (when it was broken). I'd highly recommend avoiding or at least taking thie quest *very* carefully.

On 1.11.2005 22:19 wrote:
Survived the Planetar quest without too much difficulty. Holy smite isn't as nasty if you aren't a necromancer--does around 200, maybe 250 or so max. With a necro it was 400 or maybe more. I think it is related to your Blood Dominion skill.

Ice wyrm quest next--my first where all the drops will be good. I was thinking planetars were like that, but no such luck.

Found Thorin and swapped my eq around to give me more hits. New weapon doesn't do as much damage as Orcrist, but +3 con and ESP seemed worthwhile trades.

Maxed my spellcasting skill... just wish I could find that last book to see what goodies are in store.

Inventory slots are definitely a preminum in this variant--wish I had more to keep all the interesting magic devices I keep finding--had to leave a Rod of the Northwinds lying on the floor because I couldn't spare the room, those ball spell wands are a little too helpful.
If I ever get a nice area effect blast spell that damages most monsters, I may clean up all this extra gear I keep toting. I keep hoping to find another doomblast wand, but no such luck. Power/holiness allowed me to clear a graveyard. Low on recharge right now--probably worth resting a few thousand turns to stock up before Ice Wyrms deplete my potion store.

It's true; holy lance damage is based upon blood dominion skill. You may just be higher level than I was at the time also.

ESP and +3 con? Any day of the week. I imagine you mostly get by with the magic devices, from what I read.

Doesn't Skullcleaver have NO_MAGIC? If so, you probably don't need to keep it around.

Well, had a few tasty dragon quests (Ice, Venom) which netted some decent items. Still kind of stuck with very few options to maximize my resistances though. I really got spoiled with that last character who had the PDSM.

Experience is really easy to get now. I probably shouldn't have finished maximizing a few of my skills--could have potentially won with a lower power level, but really this game was more about trying a new class than setting any special challenges.

I'm quite hungrily awaiting that last book, but it hasn't turned up yet. Nearly got the book shop to give me the happiest message through donation, hopefully that'll make that book turn up if it doesn't get randomly dropped. A nice chest in a vault yielded every high book EXCEPT the one I needed. ...argh. And quests are getting annoying--they take awhile (that eye druj quest, for example) and the reward has rarely been useful. My last quest for Hammers of the Underworld was extremely easy (doom wands and they don't have any ranged attacks). Aether hounds ought to be fairly simple too. Hopefully the quests are coming to an end soon (I seem to remember getting the "I have no more quests for you" message somewhere in the low 4000s).

I streamlined my wands a bit, deciding to just stack up the doom ones and maybe carry a few back-up ball ones for mana or a tight pinch.

Fundin was a little nasty, with his penchant for holy lances. Those seemed to do a little more damage, or maybe it was just my imagination.

Wish the home had multiple pages for inventory storing like Hengband. What a lovely feature. Next update will hopefully be near the end.

Brief update before bed... made power level 100, I had it with the last update but forgot to spend my experience. Just cleared a huge vault on an Aether Hound quest level, and also took out Gyrus (sorry, guy), Murazor, Khamal, and that Jaws of Thirst guy. Murazor was scary as I was pretty much depleted, resource wise, and he just kept coming, summoning an army of undead wherever he went. Oh. Forgot about Ungoliant who was also there, and whom I literally had to melee to death as I was just about empty of resourcs at that point too. Scary moment when a darkness storm magic attack paralyzed(!) me in addition to doing about 400 damage. Somehow survived.

Got to sort through all this loot and restock my equipment, but I'm too tired. In the center of that huge vault there were two final spellbooks--of course, the wizard one was completely absent. ...sigh.

Done, da-done done! Morgoth goes down to a hail of mana storms, doom bolts, and the occasional stunning effect from a doomstaff.
He summoned the Qlzzlyup guy, who I left
for killing after the final battle was over.

I got Raal's by pumping enough money into
the magic book store that it sold it. Took
a long time. But I was quite happy with
mana storm, which, unlike in some other
variants, doesn't wipe the floor clean every
time you use it. So it's very useful. Damage-
wise, it wasn't fantastic, but it was fairly
cost effective (27 pts, out of 450 or so max).

Had a great equipment haul at 4950', where
Sauron was generated in a greater checkerboard vault. I had to drop just
about every ordinary item I was carrying
to haul out all the loot. For awhile I was
fighting with Eowne, which did fantastic
damage as opposed to Theodon, which
I had been using for most of the game.
It was nice to slaughter monsters with melee.
Then I needed to plug in darkness resistance,
as having that hole is especially dangerous
in this game--Darkness Storms can paralyze
you, which can lead to all sorts of nastiness.
So while I was carrying a ring of Darkness
for awhile, I decided to juggle my equipment
around so I could wear the One Ring,
Nenya, and that left my weapon as Melkor's
spear. Only got 4 attacks with it, I believe,
which was too bad given that my stats
were max. But it was servicable. I didn't
try to melee Morgoth, because of his charge
draining attacks. Overall, magic devices
really helped this guy get somewhere, which
is I believe how Leon intended the mage to
behave, at least to some degree.

Enjoyed this variant. Looking forward to
returning to it again sometime in the near
future to try on more of Leon's changes.
I really like all the descriptions given to
all the items--Leon really seemed to put
some work into making items special by
more than just their statistics.
