Re: 0.20 release and tournament

I'm in! I do play under christhawk. @stoneychips, I didn't have any trouble on CBRO, but it could be different by server. I haven't gone to CAO yet. I also copy/paste my rcfile from trunk every time I start a new version, so that could have something to do with it, too. And it's a good thing this is...

Re: 0.20 release and tournament

@Moanerette I'd be interested in joining your clan. I mostly play on CBRO, sometimes on CAO. I don't have any better clan name ideas. Or, if there's more interest in a casual clan than can be accommodated in one, I'd be happy to split off a second one. I captained one several tourneys ago -- 0.17 ma...

Yee-oof. Definitely a long "u" sound.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Okay, since there are several calls for a casual clan (including me), I'm setting up clan Horde_of_Ghosts. TeshiAlair, prozacelf, and lrvs, I've added you. PM me if you want out. I'll add the next 2 people to PM me, also.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

I had a lot of fun in a clan in the 0.14 tourney and kind of missed it in 0.15, so I'd love to join one now. I've yet to win, but I play a ton.

Re: Tournament Clans for Crawl 0.14 (Recruiting)

I'd love to join Pikel's Freed Slaves. I've been playing since around 0.6 and HAVE NEVER WON GRR but I can regularly get past Lair now, so maybe someday. A Crawler can hope! I play as christhawk on CSZO.

Re: Exploring the Dungeon

I do stairs the opposite way to avoid triggering timers; I explore UP all the stairs on a level. And usually all the trap doors, after I have cleared the level. Just in case.

Disclaimer: I have never won, best I've done was die with 3 runes, but I usually make it to or just past Lair.

Re: U.S. Drought

Southern Minnesota seems to have been spared the worst of it, but on the other hand, I haven't mowed the lawn in a month. And it has definitely been hotter than I'm used to up here - much more like summers in Ohio where I grew up.

That's fantastic. Had to send it off to a friend who once for an RPG wrote a lengthy bawdy ballad, "The Knight of Lance Enhanced". I may have to print this out and tuck it someplace I'll find it periodically... ;)

Re: I think we learned an important lesson today.

It is also perfectly possible to find a centaur on D2 - just a few steps from the stairs. A few steps too many. :P

My MiBe was amused. And shed the cloak quickly!

Re: What's with the needles?

I always leave curare needles (& anything else dangerous I've picked up) in the Temple. Good place for stashes, and that keeps it out of dangerous hands. :)

First played 0.4 (? I think) on a Gateway laptop circa 1999, before it stopped being able to load webpages & got retired. Play now on my old Gateway laptop/tablet, if I'm out and about, or mostly on my gaming rig at home - which is a bit overkill for Crawl, I must admit. The laptop runs Ubuntu L...

Usually I just burn them, but once there was a conveniently placed one right in front of a OOD ice bear - I just waited until he stepped on it and let fly. Very much fun, very much piety. :)

Re: How helpful are macros to you?

I most often play berserkers or hunters, and I have a keyboard with macro keys, so I have one for ff (quick shoot), one for p (closer to the keypad) and one for keyboard-5 (again, closer to the keypad). I think I'll add that cey one, though. Very useful.

Re: I think we learned an important lesson today.

Never forget that Crazy Yiuf's staff can send you to the Abyss. It doesn't happen often, but when it happens, it will be your best character in a week and the Lair entrance will be on the same level. Sure, I'll just take out Yiuf first...
