I'm feeling slightly ADHD these days, with a zillion different characters going. Quite a bit different from my usual "play one character until he/she wins or dies", but I seem to keep getting interested in characters, play them for a few days, and then lose interest again.

My Trump High-Mage is hitting a wall post-Cloning Pits, in Angband in the 40s, so I thought I'd return to the High-Mage type I wanted to play, but gave up on. Tried it again, and the very first one got augmented at level 2 and has kept on rolling.

Its really too early to be posting him/her/it (it had been a while since I really went for it polymorphing a character, and I lost track of gender after a bit), but I'm putting up a screenshot, and, IMO, its nice to have the character in question on the ladder when the screenshot goes up.

Elliot,

Actually, whenever I play Chaos-Warrior or something with a Chaos Patron, I tend to creation-scum for an augmentation on clvl 2. A +1 to all stats really helps things along!

Any reason you're wearing "oResistAcid, rather than an Amulet of Intelligence, or even an Amulet of Slow Digestion?

I should consider that. Would certainly make life easier, though, of course, not all Chaos Patrons will do Augmentation.

The dump was done while still in Angband. The amulet was being worn to save an inventory slot to carry more stuff.

In a continuing bit of oddness, a short while after this, he found a copy of Five Aces again just sitting on the ground in Angband, this time down around dlevel 20.

I sense that the RNG is trying to send me a message, but I'm not sure what it is. Usually when that happens, the message is "I hope you're having fun with the neat items, because I'm about to crush you."

Have you considered running to Zul and getting rid of the "extremely fat" mutation? A -2 to speed at this point in the game is HUGE. You'd probably be dead except for the +2 speed randart shield (or at least serious upset..)

I have indeed considered it, but its tough because by the time he gets to level 35-40 or so, I'd probably be quite happy to have it back. He's a few levels higher up now, and actually warming up to go to Zul and get the Chaos Patron purged as well. Hionhurn hands out stat points like candy at Halloween, but after getting Augmented again (he's level 26 and was Augmented 3 times: levels 2, 18 and 22) his stats are getting pretty good. Plus, Hionhurn isn't terribly useful for anything else and can do some real damage to you if he gets mad.

Might just do everything while he's at it. While there isn't anything terribly bad among the rest of the mutations, there isn't anything super valuable, either. Teleport at will and super-strong are nice, but when you're capped at 3 blows, it doesn't take much to get you there, and its not like any of them are the super-valuable ones: Steel skin, Berserk, White Aura, Extra legs, telepathy, etc.

(clevel:30, dlevel:40) Started getting frustrated at how the slowly she was coming together, so when Malekith dropped the Phial (a very easy draw as long as you're carrying a staff of starlight. Always, always, always bring a staff, or two, of starlight when you go for the dlevel 38, 44, and 50 quests in case you get Malekith, Thuringwethil, or anything else vulnerable to light), she quickly did the Dark Elven Lords quest, took the scroll of acquisition, and totally gambled by going for R'lyeh.

Worked out splendidly, as you can see from the ring on her left hand. That's 2 or 3 rings of speed I've gotten from reading scrolls of acquisition and *acquisition* down there, which is probably 15% of the items I've gotten that way in that dungeon.

Anyway, in theory she should be ready for the Cloning Pits, but in practice its still a couple good finds away.

AC with Himring is pretty low, making the Grendels dangerous and the Its and Gachapins much bigger risks to steal and flee, rather than miss and let you beat on them (given the choice, in a battle against the 3 Gachapins, I'd probably trade rChaos for +25 AC, and since I'd probably have a temporary source of rPoison, I'd give serious thought to trading my permanent source of rPoison for another +25. Just against the Gachapins, though. The Dagons would kill you if you tried it).

Plus, I'm feeling Dave's pain on his old complains about staves of speed. Not a single one has dropped in the dungeon nor been available in the BM, and I'm at the 8 hour mark. Well, it was on for a while when I wasn't playing. Probably closer to 5 hours. I'd like to have 10 uses of speed available to use in the Cloning Pits, and she's nowhere near that.

Finally, I'm only about 50% sure that Himring also provides rConfusions via rChaos, so she's (probably) currently running around without rConfusion, which is bad. Blew most of her gold buying a ring of rChaos right before going after Malekith, which was briefly great. While the ring of speed is great, it means that her ring slots are too precious to give up for that. So the options are: bad AC + no rConfusion, or decent AC+ no rChaos rConfusion, or good AC (Isildur) + no rPoison or rChaos (but at least rConfusion would be covered). Lots of good equipment, yet only Crappy options.

You are correct... things that give RChaos do NOT automatically prevent you from being Confused in Heng and Entro. Hang on to the =oConfResistance from the Old Man Willow Quest!

Confirmed that when a battle with a Nightmare was somewhat harder than expected because of its confusion attack.

Really need an amulet with rPoison, then she could just wear Isildur and punt rChaos, using potions of curing to fix the inevitable hallucinations.

Almost forgot - found Thanos sitting on the ground very early on (dlevel 10 or so) and then the Gachapin dropped Zarcuthra. If I didn't mind aggravating, I could just go with those two, do a ton of damage and have pretty much all resists covered. Of course, she'd likely get buried by summons in the Cloning Pit, but I thought I once made it through the Cloning Pits with a "sexy" character... oh, yeah. That Nightmare mode Bard. But he was level 38 and had great equipment when he attempted it.

Browsing through my list of Sexy characters played, I completed them at: clvl 40, clvl 37, clvl 34, clvl 34, and clvl 33.

On the other hand, you do have Belthronding and +8 base speed, which are pretty darn nice for getting things done.

On 14.12.2005 22:11 dzhang@its.caltech.edu wrote:
Yeah, according to my calculations, average arrows will do 160 damage per full round with Belthronding, and (+6, +6) arrows will do 199. Maybe practice up on that and use ranged as your main attack, and swap in a weapon with Resists?

On 15.12.2005 00:54 Elliott946@aol.com wrote:
(clevel:32, dlevel:42)
Not a bad idea. I kinda set 300 damage/round as the offensive minimum for going after the Cloning Pits, so while she doesn't actually clear that hurdle, factoring in the +8 speed, she makes it easily.

Belthronding is the BOMB! I don't know if I've ever found it in Entro/Heng before, and its tremendous. Not only is rDisenchant great, but this character is actually an effective archer using it. While it does less damage than Zantetsuken, the gap isn't that big, especially if I swap that damage ring for a ring of accuracy. She's been toting arrows (mostly those sheaf arrows lately, though they're about gone now) around with her for most of the game, and getting quite a bit of use out it.

Things just took a big turn for the better as she ran into a GCV on 41 (a sub-optimal one, though, as it lots of traps and empty squares inside), and while she managed to get the Stone of Lore (probably my favorite artifact in the game), her ID was all gone by then, so she couldn't ID the stone. Lots of un-IDed loot sitting around.

Killed Dwar with a staff of starlight on the way in, and he dropped the 3rd book! Hurray! Something let Ungoliant out after that, and she had to flee, but the level re-IDed itself as something other than special after that, so she was safe to go down the stairs.

Down the stairs, the level was again special, and another big vault appeared (one of the castle-looking ones), and detection revealed a suit of scalemaill [15]. The only set of that I know of is Julian. All she has to do is somehow get around Khamul.

Hm... I never thought much about offensive minimum for Cloning Pits before... I just went in whenever I picked up RPois, RChaos, and a good number of !oHealing, !oResistance and !oSpeed (or spells of the latter two), and that's usually kind of late. Which is why I failed with Candide having only about 150/rd damage--oh well, good to know for the future. Chris, what are you minimums for doing Cloning Pits?

On 15.12.2005 03:48 chriskousky@hotmail.com wrote:
Depends ... a fast character with ready access to double resistance might go in with 200 to 250 per round. But most times I probably agree with Elliott that at least 300hp/round is required. My current Sexy character would like 300-400hp per round to compensate for the mob factor ... I don't think 150 is enough though unless you have lots of resources, and don't get unlucky with the random monsters.

On 15.12.2005 15:21 Elliott946@aol.com wrote:
The Cloning Pits can kill you lots of ways, but the single most important aspect of it to manage is killing the Gachapins before they can hit you with one of their "steal gold" melee attacks, because it typically teleports them away, potentially resulting in vast armies of hydras rampaging around the level.

At 300 damage/round with reasonably accuracy, a Gachapin shouldn't last more than 3 or 4 rounds before dying. With a good AC (say 120-140 or so), an individual Gachapin might get lucky, but the odds are pretty good of being able to keep them bottled up, as they keep using melee and missing that one crucial attack.

At 150 damage/round, it'll take 6-8 rounds to kill one, and, IMO, that's just too many opportunities for something to go wrong. You'd need an AC of like 170 to feel good about your chances, and even then you'd probably be waist-deep in hydras by the time you were done.

Similarly, going after them at, for example, AC 80 is likely to end badly as well. If you REALLY do a lot of damage for that stage of the game (perhaps 400-500/round or better), then you can probably chop through them so fast it doesn't matter, but is still risky.

(clevel:34, dlevel:44) Managed to lure Khamul and his escort out and away from the vault, but upon returning, she discovered that Khamul was just the tip of the iceberg. Judges Fear and Death plus Gorlim, were all huddled around the armor, along with their honor guard of iron, master, and monastic liches and a bunch of Zephyr lords. No single monster had the "Uh oh" factor of Khamul, but there were just too many of them.

Sighing dejectedly, she recalled back out, and the artifact memory confirmed that it was Julian. Oh well. Partially helping the pain was the fur cloak of Aman that turned up, especially since its extra resist is rNether.

With the 3rd Craft spellbook in hand, she was finally ready for the Cloning Pits. She switched from the ring of damage to the ring of slaying for better accuracy, practiced the new spells a bit, grabbed supplies and headed in.

Overall, it went quite smoothly. Belthronding plus 150 (+6,+6) arrows combined with +18 speed handled the melee monsters or anything at range, quite nicely. Zantetsuken was still the primary weapon, and while it maxed out at just over 200 damage/round, with vorpal hits it was higher, and seemed a bit more accurate than the bow.

Anyway, the Pits went smoothly. A few hydras and various demons were summoned, but in manageable quantities. I freaked out a bit when Garm showed up, but it managed to remain asleep while she killed everything else in the quest. She buffed up, woke it up with her shriek attack, and then went at it. She had to teleport away once when it summoned some undead, and later used a healing potion when it breathed nether on consecutive rounds, but it went down more easily than expected (also helped by its early summoning of a big pack of light hounds).

I'm become increasingly fond of that shriek attack. Yes, it causes aggravation, so it doesn't get all that much use, but in the rare instances when I don't care (like against Garm, or in the Arena), its great. Doesn't do a lot of damage, but it does some, had a decent range on te effect, and, best of all, it almost always stuns the monster, causing it fail spells much more frequently and often miss turns.

Hurin was the big prize in the Cloning Pits, though Thranduil, a nice randart crown, and a crown of the Magi were also there. That led to some significant equipment shifting. Stealth took a hit, but she gained ~180 hp from Isildur+Hurin, plus Hurin does a good bit more damage than Zantetsuken at this point. Thanks to being a High-Mage, Mana Branding becomes available at level 35, at which point she may swap back to the "Super Katana".

After that, the RNG played a cruel trick with Itangast. The fire drake was easy, and while the level was "bad feeling" or something before, after Itangast died, it re-IDed as (special), so there was an artifact on the floor. She ID'ed almost everything, and hadn't found an artifact yet, when she got to the last pile. A golden crown and a suit of chainmail.

C'mon. Let it be the crown. Amber would be really sweet at this point. Oh please, RNG. Oh please... Drat. The chainmail was Arvedui. Oh well.

(clevel:37, dlevel:46) Having one of those extremely busy levels that come along periodically. A big vault is on the level, as usually happens when things are busy.

So far, she's killed Rinaldo, Dworken (who dropped the Jewel!), Saruman, Utgarde-Loke, Ahtu, Smaug, and a couple lesser uniques as well. Now that they're all out of the way, she can finally open the vault which appears to have another 5 or 6 uniques inside.

Ah. Figured it out. Saurman was friendly, but I accidentally hit him with an arrow and had to kill him. He probably started inside the vault, summoned the steel dragon, and the teleported outside.

After clearing the vault, managed to add Ariel, Debby, Ulfang, Quachil Uttaus (who probably killed more of the vault's denizens than I did), Borel of Hendrake, and Quaker to the list. Lots of them, but a relatively uninspiring lot. Plus, while clearing the vault, Ar-Pharazon and Yibb-Tstill spawned outside, so she had to clean them up, too.

The level had a Special feeling all along, which turned out to be coming from Calris. In the end, she took out Calris, Smaug's corpse (wanted), Elendil, Yedusen, the Jewel, amulets of resistance and reflection, a crown of the magi, Tetsu-Geta of Flame, a dragon helm and a dragon shield.

My confidence in this character is growing by leaps and bounds.

Mana Branding works great when there is time to prepare for a big fight, but its high SP cost and fail rate prevent it from being a staple part of her offense so far.

Used the reward of Indra to beat the Shambler in the Arena (unless you can do 1,000 damage/round, that guy is hard to beat without IMElectricity) and the Reaver proved especially susceptible to those Shriek attacks and was surprisingly easy to beat. The Reaver's scroll of *acquisition* produced the Elemental of Ching-Rong (I've never found it in the dungeon, but I've gotten it twice from *acquisition scrolls) which is mega-AC armor and it and the randart crown replaced Isildur and that crown of the magi with rPoison.

Just finished the Killing Fields which really did become the killing fields. She needed the EXP and I was curious how hard it would be, so I ran the quest the way its probably supposed to run, charging up through the passages, clearing out and finishing off the Warriors of the Dawn as she went. With an AC of 240+, they had a really hard time hitting her and died in droves. Final count was 331 and she didn't stop until every single one was entirely gone. With that AC and reflection, the Maulotaur didn't stand a chance.

Well, I wouldn't exactly call her damage output overwhelming, though even characters with decent offense have struggled for me. Alternatively, characters who are either missle weapon based or have dimension door or the like can bridge that distance gap quickly and thus suffer fewer breath attacks.

Found an Ancient Dragon pit on dlevel 60 and am slowly clearing it. Progress would be faster, but Hammerhand was cursed and is periodically draining hp and sp. Found Nain, Incanus, and the Inro and that randart armor so far, plus Hagen showed up earlier on the level.

I probably should have taken a screen shot), which made progress much faster.

I wish I had noted what level she was when she encountered the dragon pit. Probably 40 or so. The final kill count was: 5 dracolisks, 8 venom wyrms, 9 hell wyrms, 3 bile wyrms, 11 ice wyrms, 7 storm wyrms, 2 GWoC, and 5 GWoMC. Teleported away at least a half-dozen steel dragons who just weren't worth the effort, and the 6th and final GWoMC which went totally breath happy and I figured there was plenty of loot to sort through already.

Had to leave a handful of lesser artifacts there (Hagen, Hithlomir, and Kamui's Ninjato), along with probably 500+k worth of 3rd and 4th books and some nifty items like a (5d9) claymore of slaying. But brough out: Charmed Pendent, Frakir, Faramir, the Inro, Holhenneth, Orcrist, Thunderfist, Nain, and a bunch of randarts and pieces of dragon armor. One randart is a shield that's actually an upgrade on her current one (+3 speed instead of +2!).

Elliot,

I'm just wondering... what are you planning on doing for end-game damage against the Serpent with this guy? Aglarang or Hurin with a RoExtraAttacks(+2)?

I was thinking of maybe trying to go ranged way wth Belthronding and RoExtraShots... which means I need to start collecting ego ammo NOW. (3.5 (bow multiplier) * 3 (shots) * 33 (damage on +10 arrows) * 2 (slay evil) = 660 damage per round, which I doubt I can beat with melee on a High Mage.. Of course, that means I'll need to find Ringil for melee weapon for the Speed...

I actually have no idea how she's going to handle the Serpent. Kinda hoping something huge falls into her lap (a found diamond edge plus the Justice scroll of artifact creation, perhaps, as I think she's very unlikely to beat the Babble or the GWoP in the Arena), though the Belthronding route occured to me as well, hence the growing stockpile of rings of extra shots (4 is probably more than enough unless she grows some extra arms).

Lucked out and got Glaaki for the level 62 quest (one of the easier uniques for his level in the game, IM), and lucked out some more when Glaaki dropped a +11 Ring of speed, along with some odds and ends.

Wielding Nain for rDisenchantment allows the use of both rings of speed, so she's now posting a +37 base speed. Pretty nifty, and while she has to beat on things for a while to kill them, her huge speed and superb defenses make it very doable.

Swapping to Belthronding would cost +27 speed, which is a pretty steep price to pay, plus she's still missing rLight and rShards, so there are plenty of holes yet to fill.

(clevel:46, dlevel:69) Tried going toe-to-toe with a more level-appropriate opponent, Gerard, and it became clear that while a 220+ AC and +47 speed is nice, she really needs more offense to go after the deeper uniques (well, much of the damage came from mana hounds Gerard summoned, but most of the deeper uniques will do much worse).

Staff of Mana Storm might be an option for offense, if you can find one...and carry scrolls of Recharging for it. The unfortunate thing about that is you can never tell when it will blow up :(

Belthronding has rDisenchant, so I could swap it and a ring of extra shots for Brand and the lesser ring of speed, and then maybe Hurin for Nain for some extra CON. That would drop her all the way to +20+10 speed, but would probably be a 50% boost to her damage output.

Staff of Mana Storm also has another HUGE disadvantage.. lots of monsters drain charge with touch, and Mana Storm is only effective 1 to 2 squares away from the monster. You might try Wand of Rockets (400, resist to 200) or Wands of Disintegration (300, unresistable).

So I decide to try the missle weapon route. She buys up and enchants a bunch of arrows, juggles equipment as required, goes with Sting as her melee weapon for the +CON and resists (everything but rSound covered) and recalls in.

She runs into a Lord of Chaos which would be a perfect test monster. After buffing up, she wakes it up with an arrow and the batlte is joined. With the Lord of Chaos down to 5 stars, its clear that Belthronding is doing more damage than Nain or even Zantetsuken did, I'd guess 30% more, even with the reduced speed. Still, the Lord of Chaos summons monsters at that point, getting Glaurung and Shudde M'ell, forcing her to teleport away.

Grrr. That was bad luck, but it leaves me wondering if that route actually does enough damage. The location she lands in has a bunch of sleeping dark elven warlocks, so she cheerfully slaughters them while I ponder using Belthronding.

The RNG, seeing that I'm serious about the missle weapon route, and decides that maybe it would be willing to help out. "But what weapon to provide? Lets see: a suitable weapon for a low blows/round character, high damage, and something Elliott would be comfortable with... I know just the thing!"

Whlie sorting through the remains of the warlocks, she finds a (10d10) weapon...

THANK YOU, RNG!

(clevel:47, dlevel:69) After a substantial number of weapon and equipment swaps, I've finally got a combo that gets the job done. Ironically, the huge AC and tremendous speed that were her big advantages turned out to be what I had to sacrifice to get the job done.

Found that nifty randart armor for sale in the black market and it was a bargain at 390k. It goes in for Ching-Rong, the crown of the magi with rPoison comes in for the randart crown, Hurin and Brand for a cast of thousands and Belthronding, the 2 rings of damage or 1 and the ring of extra attacks (found in the anti-melee cave, where I don't think it was doing its prior owner much good) for the ring of speed and the ring of rDisenchantment, and the shield sits at home so Hurin can be wielded two-handed.

Net change is speed is down from as high as +37 all the way to +15 and AC is down from as high as 185 to a paltry 115.

The trade-off is that her raw melee damage is nearly doubled and her accuracy against high AC targets is a lot better to boot. Killed both Bast and Fiona (who, continuing this character's run of luck, dropped her namesake dagger) and was able to chase Bleys and Jack of Shadows around the level (both got away) rather than the other way around.

Killing Bast was especially significant to me, because Bast is one of the best armored uniques in the game, and taking her out meant that Kreskin's weapon accuracy is now end-game worthy (though, admittedly, she's got plenty of other things to work on).

Funny you mention the low INT and SP totals, Dave, as I was just looking at our respective dumps and that was the first thing that occured to me as well. Of course, you're a Golem and are 10 levels lower than me, so if your total is weak, mine is downright pathetic. On the other hand, bad SP was part of the character concept, and my hope was that the lower SP costs from being a High Mage would partially make up for it. Plus, using Craft, there aren't a lot of repeat cast spells.

I haven't made a final race decision, but I might stick with Barbarian. HP are good as is the melee bonus, which is huge. Plus, once stats start getting maxed I get hesistant to polymorph, as it tends to knock things down.

(clevel:49, dlevel: 76) Found Gerard for a rematch, and plastered him all over a wall which was satisfying. Then killed Pazuzu for the dlevel 76 quest.

That guy is just an embarassment to level 82 monsters everywhere. Against an opponent with doubled electrical resists, Pazuzu is almost helpless. Well, that psycho-spear isn't bad, but you'd expect more from a level 82 monster. I wonder if Azriel, Combat Echizen, and Cyegha ever sit around and make fun of Pazuzu and complain about being lumped in with him.

IMO, Glaaki, Brand, and Pazuzu are the weakest uniques for their level, while Jack of Shadows and Shuma-Gorath are perhaps the strongest.

(clevel:50, dlevel:79) Pazuzu, wimpy though he may be, did drop Bloody Moon, one of the most interesting artifacts in the game. I had visions of turning it into a weapon with +2 blows, forcebrand, slay evil, great bane of humans, vorpal, and with rShards and rLight, and was willing to put the time in to do it.

So Kreskin nestled into a square in the top left corner of the map on dlevel 76 or so and went to work. After 2 or 3 weeks of game time and many, many attempts, it became clear that neither extra blows nor force branding were going to happen. Got some interesting combos, though. Both great bane of trolls (which I don't think any weapon actually has) and slay trolls appeared on the same incarnation, once.

Without being able to get one of the big two, Bloody Moon wasn't going to replace Hurin as Kreskin's primary weapon, but the last try before I finally got tired of it (great bane of humans, vorpal, and rShards) would be an excellent anti-Chemist weapon (possibly even better than Grond) should Kreskin get that far.

A great unclean thing a few levels later finally provided the long sought Fingolfin, and Songmaster (which is always fun, though it can't replace Hurin) even popped out on level 79. While I could complain and note that Cambeleg would be a small improvement on Fingolfin, and the crown of Amber would be better than the current crown of the magi (as long as Amber had rPoison), Kreskin's equipment is now ready for prime-time.

On 29.12.2005 23:21 Elliott946@aol.com wrote:
Right after that, Kreskin found a ring of +2 extra attacks, and after great consideration, Songmaster has been brought out and is being given a test-run in place of Hurin. Basically, its +10 AC, +10 SP, +5 speed and about +50 damage/round vs evil opponents (though somewhat inferior damage against non-acid resistant opponents and non-evil opponents) as a trade off for about 75 hp.

(clevel:50, dlevel:88) Discovered that wielding the +2 ring and the earlier +1 ring of extra attacks worked better with Songmaster than the rings of damage, so she swapped. Then Mephistophilies (one of the 2 or 3 best item dropping uniques in the game) dropped Anabasis. Wielding that great shield and carrying around a ring of rShards, Kreskin is now able to cover all her resists, though rChaos and rShards are through swaps that aren't always worn.

Mephistophilies also dropped perhaps the least enchanted artifact I've ever seen: the Ball-and-Chain 'Catapult' (2d4) (+17,+16) with +3 to searching. That's it. No resists, so slays or activations, and no stat bonuses (other than searching). Rather disappointing.

Kreskin is now using the Palantir to clean up the remaining uniques. I'm trying to be careful to leave the remaining orc and other low level uniques. I've got a plan to get the Unicorn, so if it works perhaps I'll be able to kill her for the first time.

Trump branding is kinda nifty. I assumed it would brand the weapon as a Trump item. Instead, it gives it a random ego power and boosts the to-hit and to-dam modified a little.

Since she probably won't get her hands on an artifact creation scroll this game (Borel of Hendrake was failed, but other than him the only one left is the extremely easily gotten Gwaihir, which is a shame), this and Bloody Moon are the closest I'm going to get. Tried unenchanting a Death Scythe, hoping to get an unechanted (10d10) weapon and then Trump brand it, but so far no such luck. Perhaps Mundanifying it will work.

I've actually tried that already. It doesn't work.. when you read a ?oMundanity on a Death Scythe, it resets it to (-30, +30), not (+0, +0) as one might expect.

Plus, the level has a big vault and there are a bunch of uniques here already.

Fought the Destroyer in melee, and except for the level getting taken over by Unmakers, I think I could have taken him, which was nice.

(clevel:50, dlevel:101) Punched through
Oberon and Sauron with relatively little difficulty, thanks to walking through walls. Oberon was kind enough to drop Amber, and Kreskin also killed Gothmog on the level who dropped Dor-Lomin, providing an embarassment of helmet riches.

Killed Nodens for the first time ever (fighting him inside the walls makes him much easier) and he dropped Tulkas, which was swapped in for the ring of speed.

Geared up for the Serpent by wearing Amber, thus maxing CON, allowing him to wear the ring of rShards the whole time. Only speed +26+10 for the fight, but it was enough. Tough fight as the Serpent did a lot of summoning. Following up on my plan to kill the Unicorn would have helped a lot, as would have killing the Destroyer, both of whom were troublesome. Morgoth was the real threat, however. He kept following the Serpent around and as soon as I'd Destruct him, he'd just get summoned again. Finally got some space and was able to finish off the Serpent.

Once the Serpent was down, Kreskin started hunting the Chemist. Wielded the anti-Chemist Bloody Moon (great bane of humans, vorpal, and rShards. Wanted some variety from Grond, plus I was worried about its aggravation and anti-magic shell), which let him re-wield the ring of speed. Took the supplies left after fighting the Serpent: a single precious potion of invulnerability, 5 life, 10 *healing*, and 10 healing potions, plus 3 rods of healing, Amber's activation, and a bunch of CCW potions, also a half-dozen or so each of Genocide and Mass Genocide scrolls. Really would have liked to have a bunch of *destruction* scrolls, but he only had 12, and 11 were needed against the Serpent.

Eventually found the Chemist, and Craft is a good spell school for fighting him because he doesn't cast dispel magic nearly as often as Oberon or the Serpent. So Kreskin's buffs mostly remained in place, which was handy, because she had Magic Armor running almost all of the time for the magic resistance. I don't know if it was enough to guarantee immunity to statue-ification, but she was only statue-ified once during the battle, and that was when I didn't realize Magic Armor had worn off.

Anyway, Kreskin couldn't quite get the Chemist in the end, but she did retire as my first official Entro winner (Smiter died against the Chemist, and Slicer committed Seppuku, which apparently makes the board not recognize him as a winner), so I'm more than satisfied. Pretty darn good for a melee high-mage. Pity Dave beat me to it :p.
