YAVP: GhEn^Ru, 15 runes, the One-Armed Bandit

Another 15 rune win! Admittedly, when I thought that my OgWr was overpowered, I hadn't yet realized I'd be playing this character soon after. I was doing random combos and after a few failed attempts, I finally got this Ghoul Enchanter. I didn't know what I'd do with him, I just figured I'd drift al...

Fannar isn't that dangerous if you have cold resist, in my experience. Especially with a berserker. Berserk or a single bro-in-arms would probably be enough, summon two if you wanna be really safe. It's incredible how much stronger monsters a berserking Trog-lodyte with a couple BiAs can defeat.
