YAVP - VSWr of Zin, TSO, Zin - 15 runes (0.15 tournament)

VSWr, what the hell is that? Well, vine stalkers are very strong (the 4th most popular species in the tournament), and warper is a good background, with some useful spells and a weapon of choice.

I found an early Zin altar, and I was planning to go to extended anyway, so why not? I never used Zin in the early and midgame, but heard that he is very good there too. Yes, it's true.

The odds were not very good for the character to survive the early game: D:2 Terence, D:3 Sigmund, D:4 Blork and a player ghost (and Pikel, as it later turned out). But I avoided them all. (I went back to kill them not much later, when in Orc I found a morningstar, a good armour and money for some good rings).

I did Orc before Lair to get the Lord of Darkness banner. Also found a shield of resistance in a shop, so the character concept became this: shield and a sacred scourge, made from the first demon whip I find, most probably in the Depths.

So, after 2 runes I did V:1-4, and it was terribly hard again. I met several deep elf annihilators and high priests. After that, some Depths, got a demon whip from a balrug, so switched to TSO and went to the Crypt. Soon I had a blessed scourge.

(By the way, this is very weird: the weapon of angels is a "sacred scourge", but my weapon became "Blessed scourge". I cannot figure out why.)

After Crypt came Elf and V:5 and Slime (TRJ goes down fast if an angel and a vine stalker are hitting him). There I realized I had no haste spell. So I made a deal with myself: If I find haste in Depths or Zot, I go on - if I don't, I stop and win with 4 runes. Soon I found a Book of Wizardry, so no quitting, the show must go on.

I did Tomb next, slowly and carefully. In Tomb:3, after clearing everything, in a side treasure room I found Khufu, alone. Weird, I thought he always travels with a band of mummies.

Pan next: I did not clear floors, I was just diving, hoping to find the demonic rune anyway. And soon, I was dropped in a small room, with the demonic rune and a gate, guarded by a Lord and some insignificant demons (no fiends). A dream.

All 4 big panlords went down pretty easily: antimagic bite plus holy weapon is a very good combo. The funniest part was in Cerebov's level: I was dropped just outside his castle, next to the castle's steel wall. So I started killing dudes happily, when... holy shit, Cerebov is here! It turned out that I was actually inside the castle, not outside. But luckily there was a little hiding place where I could prepare (haste, call angel, haste angel, quaff might).

For the Hells, I went back to Zin. Coc, Geh and Tar were not hard (Zin is awesome!). In Dis:7, I got into a bit of trouble, as Dispater's group included a tormentor and a hellion. I read a teleport immediately, fogged and retreated. The teleport kicked is, and it dropped me well behind them, practically on top of the rune, with nobody in sight. So I picked it up and left, leaving Dispater alive (don't be greedy).

Zot:5 was pretty easy, but after that the ascension was tough: 4 pan lords! Hey guys, you don't scare me, but now I run away anyway.

My 39th win, 24th online. First all-runer in a tournament. Also, this is by far my fastest 15-rune win, I don't know how I did it in 108k turns, I had several 3-runers that took longer. Well, this is the power of VS regeneration.
