[YASD] I almost got a win in under 50k turns

  Code:
568147 TheSilverBeluga the Brawler (level 26, -8/222 HPs)
             Began as a Ghoul Monk on Nov 30, 2016.
             Was a Priest of Cheibriados.
             Mangled by Zyqeucs the pandemonium lord (23 damage)
             ... on level 3 of the Realm of Zot on Dec 3, 2016.
             The game lasted 05:54:42 (44775 turns).


To be fair, I feel like this death wasn't completely stupid. There are only two things that come to mind that I could have done better:

1. Use less slouch in the lungs. By the time I started the orb run, I was down to ****.. piety. Step from time would probably have saved me.
2. Waited for the electric golem to blink away before going up the stairs. They can do a fair bit of damage, even with rElec, and I was down to 77 HP by the time the pan lord showed up.

Oh, well. I guess I'll have to get a chei win some other time.
Side note: google docs recognizes all DCSS god names as words. Interesting.

Allow me to beat the rest of tavern to the punchline:

3. Not worship Chei.

But Chei is one of the best gods for speedrunning!

But not for the "just under 50k" kind of speedrunning. Just go fed->jiyva and skip the vaults, otherwise play normally.

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
