Bleeko the Lawful Dwarven Cavewoman 2011-11-17: Ascended in 49912 turns DevNull tournament server version 3.4.3 Finally! After enduring the Disappearing Caveman and the Greedy Caveman, I walked away for a year, but the third time was the charm! The game was not particularly generous, but I was able to get along. One of the minetown shops had a marker and found another in the mines. Also ran across a magic lamp, but kept it for light. Not much in the way of scrolls though. No ID scrolls at all until just above Medusa. Found a coaligned altar on L5 and camped a bit for Demonbane, then switched to a mace to train up for the Sceptre of Might. Threw some daggers, but otherwise have very little ranged attack capability. Things improved nicely though. I took out a silver dragon in a throne room around L15, and he dropped scales. With reflection in place, I went on the quest. Happily, I found a second lamp in the quest levels and wished for a cloak of magic resistance. Back in the main dungeon, I had no levitation, so I dug past Medusa. Cycled the castle drawbridge until someone smashed it, then filled the moat with a scroll of earth. The wand was (0:1), but luckily I had IDed charging, genocide, a ring of free action, and teleport control before wishing. I wished for a ring of levitation resistance, speed boots, and after some though, gauntlets of power. I kept the last one in reserve. Cleaned out the valley, levelported to the bottom, and then worked my way back up, collecting polyfodder. Polypiled to get a ring of slow digestion, scrolls of remove curse, ID, genocide, gold detection, and enchant weapons & armor. After all was said and done, my AC was -44 and the Scepter was +7. The mysterious force was pretty ridiculous, sending me back through Orcus-town *11* times! Kept experience level low to avoid the tougher monsters, but on Astral I quaffed 8 potions to gain level up to 28. I went right up the middle through Famine, and happily, it was the right one! No hanging around this game!
