CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Hey All!

Have some time to play again. Decided to ease back into this complex game with something simple, before resuming my other characters...

Wanted; no magic, no weapons, no difficult decisions as to equipment, etc. Therefore; a troll monk.

Figured I'd die soon enough - never played a troll, nor chosen Trog before, but this character has proven to be quite resilient.

I see that trolls eat a lot.

I wanted to be with Okawaru, but couldn't find the temple (turns out it was accessed by stairs from a lower level), and there was an altar to Trog on dungeon level three. After reading his description and mulling things over, I figured I'd give it a try.

When I was granted the ability to berserk at will, I waited till I found an easy monster (a rat) and try it out. Saw that one can't do much besides attack or move, and it made me hungry, slow, and exhausted (what exhaustion does, I don't know) when it wore off.

Besides that rat, I have berserked one other time; on Lair level eight. Had two dire elephants on top of me, and another below me. That was getting to be tense, but when the orange grinding beetle popped in right beside me - through a wall none the less - I figured this would be a good test to see how well it functions!

Trog's Hand is nice, for the massive regeneration and magic protection. Worked well in the Orcish mines, I found. Of which it was a breeze, being completely surrounded half the time, ignoring the orcs and making a bee line for any priests and wizards.

Brothers in Arms, I tested twice (three times if you count the test with a bat). First time against Louise, who was killing me with her ranged magic. Wanted a diversion, but the help came in three squares below me, while Louise was six above. He got the killing blow on her, but I did like nearly all the work before he got involved. < laugh >

The other time, was when I took a wrong turn and ran into Agnes. I couldn't hit her, and at half life, called in the help. Swapped places and saw that he couldn't hit her either. So I led her into a room full of ogres and confused them (not her) with a wand. When she got clubbed down into the red, I poisoned her with some needles and that was that. She had a lajatang of protection, turns out.

Although I rarely get a hit on anything that is asleep, confused, or distracted - I seem to "mangle" and "eviscerate" things often enough. Not certain if it is because my unarmed combat is increasing, or that (surprisingly) my stabbing skill is (?).

First hydra I tangled with, went from 6 heads to 12 heads before I killed it. Ware of the claws!

Next few hydras I changed tact. Wands of slow, confusing, and paralysis were used and then I moved in to start the bleeding. When the bleeding stopped, I would move back in, or let it next to me, so that I could hit and start the bleeding again. Since I regenerate faster than a hydra, they eventually died.

I regret not having waited until finding an altar to Okawaru. I'm certain Trog is a fabulous god, but not well suited for a monk. I have received only weapon gifts, and nearly all are of the anti magic variety. When I wield one, my MP goes down to 2. Not that I need it, but still. I will try and get some decent throwing skill, maybe he'll see it and give me some throwing nets, or large rocks...

Trolls have amazing strength. I have not been burdened yet!

Trolls eat a lot. I have come to the conclusion that I must eat before satisfying Trog. Therefore there are few blood sacrifices. Still, he seems quite happy with my performance. I have killed everything I can, and will try and kill what I can't for now, at a later time (Nikola is on this list).

I was going to clear the Elvish Halls, but saw that they are all considered magic-users in that branch. Trog really happy with my work there so far, so I'll save them for later, should my *'s start falling with Trog.

I'm used to playing vampires, so see invisible, and poison resistance, certainly were appreciated once I acquired them (not to mention this whole food dimension).

I did Hive as soon as I got the ring - mainly for my constant concerns over food. When I found the shield, I went back down and killed that unseen horror which was giving me fits before - much satisfaction when I watched it bleed to death.

I see the armour is quite restricted, no boots, gloves, nearly all armour, helmets, bucklers, and I dunno what else. I'm extremely happy that I found that dragon armour, and shield. The cloak I bought. The hat is just for fashion.

Oklob plants; I just strip off my armour and go in with the claws.

Jellies; strip armour and go in with the claws. They burn some, but nothing serious for my massive health. Feels wierd advancing on jellies - instead of retreating from them. <laugh>

"Muffin" is the closest approximation, in English, to this character's name, from Troll speak - in case you are wondering...

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Also note that oklobs and jellies are best encountered with any kind of crappy armour equipped, disregard the quality of it as each covered slot reduces damage from acid splash. A puny -2 cloak will greatly reduce acid damage! BiA can also make an acid fight easier.

Thanks for that. I looked for it in the game instructions ("?" + "5"), but "EXH" isn't listed.

Hmmm.... That's good thinking. I'll apply that thought with some reject equipment, should an opportunity arise.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Hey All!


Lot's has transpired since last time. I'm going to hold this guy here, and start typing the latest adventures...


So leaving the elves for now, in case I need some easy Trog *'s later on, I descend deeper into the dungeon. Found a portal to an ice cave, and went in and looted it. No real problems that I can remember there. But: upon exiting it, there was this little yellow dude with a pointy hat...



The Boggart Encounter:

The game says he's a "boggart" or something like that. The monster description said they have tricky magic. So I simply figured they were like spriggans. So I start advancing on him, wondering what he'd taste like...

The boggart starts blinking around in an open area, I follow him, muttering about this going to take longer. He better taste good now...

He summons some assorted monsters. Hmmm. I pause for a moment, scanning through all these new monster descriptions. All right, nothing I can't handle. I'll try and bee line for this boggart first, settle this situation by taking out the root of the problem. Then he summons three more boggarts...

Two turns later, there's like 30 monsters in my field of vision - no joke! I'm now running back to see if I can get back into that ice cave! Of course, I can't, but at least its arch was in an area where just three monsters at a time can be next to me - sure beat being in the open.

Now, I'm engaged in an epic battle. Must have killed over 60 monsters - all with no experience gain! Took me like 300 turns, maybe more. I had to stop defending myself twice, during the battle, in order to eat. I was so tempted to call on Trog for his Hand, but somehow managed it all through judicious tactics. When I finally got my claws around that little Boggart's neck - I decapitated him.

Then Trog gave me a gift. I forget what, likely an anti-magic glaive, or something, but at least he recognized my efforts. < laugh >



So I keep exploring, just reached a new experience level, and the mexican dwarf, Wiglaf, comes strolling along...



This Dungeon Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us (Or, Berserk Situation #3):

Now then, I have much respect for Wiglaf, his god is Okawaru (the one I wanted to worship too) and that in itself, is nothing to sneeze at. Wiglaf is six squares from me. I'm torn between giving him a go right now, or marking him in the dungeon annotations section, to be dealt with later. I'm so indecisive, so figure this is a good time for a snack to ponder the dilemma. I reach into my pack and pull out some monster chunk and start chewing. I know that it takes two turns to eat a chunk of raw flesh, which will bring him to within four squares of me, still lots of a margin to either fight or flee. Let's see how he reacts to that...

Well, Wiglaf asked Okawaru for Finesse, and then evoked his power to make him a mighty hero. He always did it the other way around! That meant, that instead of him being four squares from me - he's now right next to me. And...

He hits me with an axe of draining and I lose my new experience level.

I lose it! I immediately berserk and start wailing on him.

Wiglaf is doing pretty good, he hits me 5 times total and brought me into the yellow health - but I'm not backing off. It's either him or me, I can't see any other outcome - one of us will be standing, and the other will meet his chosen god.

The fight ends. Wiglaf's mangled body on the ground, amongst his equipment. I'm now level 15 and 83%. But I show up Okawaru's champion in the presence of Trog!



Found the entrance to the vaults, and went in for a quick test of my abilities there. No problems, cleared the first level, and back to the dungeon. Was having a good slaughtering spree, accumulating some neat loot in the process (large rocks, a throwing net, and the amulet I'm now wearing), when this mean looking gunslinger turned a corner and decided to ruin my good times...



Deep Trolls Rock (Or, Brother In Arms Situation #4)

This guy named Frederick, lean and mean and full of confidence, flickers into invisibility and starts shooting me. I'm leary of these arrogant types, so I'm backing off, maintaining distance. You never know what type of fancy magic these people can have. I took two shots of I forget what now, they stung, but looked like I was able to shrug it off well enough. So I stop back peddling, and start moving towards him now. As long as I don't go below 90 health by the time he's in claw range, I feel good about taking on fighter mages...

The next shot hit me for 80.

Ouch!

I can't take another shot like that! Like, I can't take anything even half of that now!

Okay, where's the stairs? This is a complex level, many wide open spaces with some intertwined hallways. How many squares till I reach each one? What's the best path in order to ditch this guy? How can I shield myself till then?

Start scrutinizing every single item in my inventory. Next I look at what I can evoke in the "a" screen, as well as what I can invoke from Trog. Then I Walk away from the computer, make a coffee, and go out for a smoke. Need to think hard...

Have plan now: Scroll of fog - take two steps putting as much fog as possible between him and me - potion of agility - invoke Trog's Hand - gingerly start weaving around the fog cloud - no Frederick sighted - start heading for stairs option #1 - Frederick comes in view - scroll of fog - start heading for stairs option #2 path...

It was a long game of "cat and mouse". Frederick is either 7, 8, or 9 squares from me, most of the way. I took two more of his bolts along the way, but thankfully I had regenerated some life before hand, on each occasion. Finally, I can see the stairs. Single square hallway, opening into a small room where they're located. When I'm two squares away from them, and also have one turn out of his line of sight, I ask Trog for a Brother In Arms.

A blue deep troll appears. Strange, I say, as all the previous times it has been brown rock trolls (?). Any ways, no time to lose, all has been carefully calculated ( I expected that the brother would appear within three squares from me ), and I position myself so that he will be able to see Frederick on the next turn - and be between me and him. Now I'm on the stairs. The deep troll has spotted Frederick and has headed straight for him, in the single square hallway. I'm watching, to see how this goes...

The deep troll started killing Frederick like you wouldn't believe. After five hits, Frederick was in the red.

Wow!

I stepped off the stairs and started heading for them - hoping that I could get in the killing blow. Next turn Frederick died - and I was still three squares away. Thank you for that deep troll brother, Trog! < smile >


I think we'll give the dungeon a rest, for now. Let's go try the vaults...



A Dragon, is a Dragon (?):

The vaults have lots of open areas, so kind of goes slow, for this troll character, but nothing too hard. Always leery of ogre mages, of course.

Level 2 has lava pools over half the level, so even slower having to drop scrolls before engaging the fire snakes, fish, crabs, etc. Looks like I got them all, so hit the "o" button, to speed things up. The game stops my character and says that "Xtahua is too close for my liking". I say; "What is an Xtahua?", and look at the picture.

It's a red dragon to me, and the description tends to affirm this conclusion. No problem, just need to put this ring of fire resistance on, and we'll have dragon ribs for supper. The same turn I put on the ring, Xtahua breathes fire on me.

Scroll of teleportation time...



On my way out, I came across a pile of 3 scrolls, picked them up, and once out of the Vaults, I read one and discover that I have finally found some scrolls of blinking. Took the game 44,500 turns to give me some...


We'll give the Vaults a break. What to do now...?


I'd like to take care of Nikola and Roxanne. I hate leaving loose ends. Roxanne, I can certainly handle, but Nikola is a wild card with all his blinking and zapping, and he's hanging out near her. I go through my depot, in Hive level 1, to see if I have anything with electrical resistance. Only thing is a staff of air. I wonder if it'll do? I have a couple scrolls of blinking now, should be fine in case things turn too electric...

I go back to the level where they both are, and start hunting the hallways for Nikola - staff of air in claws. We spot each other simultaneously, and I'm happy to see he is quite a distance from Roxanne. Good, I'll take him out now, and thus can do Roxanne at leisure. I test his chain lightning from range 6, two times, and see that I resist all the arcs. Okay Nikola, I want your equipment. I start marching towards him...


Are Hydras Conductive? (Or, Berserk Situation #4):

Nikola, lightning, blinks, chain lightnings, blinks, talks, etc. I keep having to chase him around, but eventually we're at a dead end of a hallway, in a small room. He can't blink, without me whacking him with this staff of air, for more than a turn or two. The whacking process is slow, I have no skill with staves, and depend on the occasional punch or kick for any real damage. All the while both of our health is steadily diminishing. But I gauge that I'll win the battle of attrition by enough of a margin, to keep me at it.

During one of the chain arc blitzes, I notice that my life has suddenly taken a decidedly drastic dive. What's the story? It's like the twentieth time we go through the message spam, and I just keep hitting the space bar to get through it quickly. I go to "CTRL + P" and carefully see if anything is different in the last few logs. My eyes widen, when I keep seeing the word "hydra" inter-spaced through it!

I "ESC" out of the screen and look at the main dungeon map - sure enough and somehow - an 8-headed hydra has either sneaked up on me, or has suddenly been generated right next to me! Well; thank you very much crawl game. Are you testing me, or if hydras are conductive!?!??!!

Now I stop, and have to think real hard again. This is another very serious situation. All of my wonderful and ingenious plan, has been dashed out the window. I can't finish off Nikola fast enough, unless I use my claws. I can't let go of the staff, else I'll be fried by Nikola. I can't risk a blink in such tight quarters with these two monsters here. I look at all my screens again - but I know my options are going to be very limited. I have to get out of here, and it has to be past the hydra, and I pray that Nikola doesn't blink in my way, while going through the corridor.

I berserk. Take a round of hits. Start making my way around the hydra, taking hits and lightning arcs. I read each turns text very carefully, to see how it is averaging out. I'm so incredibly happy that I have a shield and some skill to help me block so much!

I'm in the corridor now, and start putting distance between me and the hydra. Nikola has blinked to one of the two spots where he can't see me - thus no lightning arcs. When I'm four squares from the hydra, I read a scroll of teleportation. My heart starts to beat normal again. I'll make out of this situation, I'm pretty confident now. I ask Trog for his Hand, while waiting for the tele to happen. I teleport...

Right next to the 8-headed Hydra! I can't believe this!!

I check back through the log. I need to know how long I've been berserk, cause I know what happens when I stop - and I don't want to be in that situation. Crap, crap crap!

In desperation; I start whacking the Hydra with the staff of air! I think I have about 4 turns left. Nikola has showed his head again, he chain lightnings and the arcs go between the three of us. The Hydra is at half life. Nikola blinks out of sight. I take a chance, and wield nothing. I mangle the hydra, cut off a head, and now it has nine. I wield the staff again, Nikola comes out. I step back, the hydra follows, Nikola is out of range. Back to claws, I kill the hydra. become slow, exhausted, read a scroll of fog, and make my way back to the stairs.

Nikola, and Roxanne, will be dealt with another time...




[ Wow. Look at the time. More tomorrow, with the character dump... ]

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Now where do I go? I look at the dungeon overmap screen, to contemplate to plan the next venture...

Oh! Let's try the Shoals. I've never been there yet. Let's see what that's all about...

I'm in the Shoals area. Carefully exploring. No idea what inhabits this area. Discover; merfolk, seasnakes, snapping turtles, hippogriphs, manticores, sheep, and mermaids. Nothing I can't handle at all. I especially like mermaids, easy to spot as they sing a song and the screen compresses so that you can not get away from them. Also, very tender and tasty. Make troll happy. < smile >

Thing I don't like, is all this water, hard to get around to the isolated islands. This place would be good with flight or levitation spells, but since Trog is my god, I'll have to wait till I find something that I can evoke for those abilities.

So I'm cruising along, when I come upon this bloodied obsidian axe. I pocket it with the rest of the "unknown loot to be tested later", in my backpack. Some time later, when I have enough accumulated, I try it out, and see it has the levitation ability. Oh great, I say. Now I can get to some of those islands - and off I go. Combined with my amulet, I get flight, and everything is roses, concerning exploration. Then I spot a merfolk or something, and I become mesmerized.

Huh? That's no mermaid, when I carefully check the monster picture, what's going on? I conclude that it's this obsidian axe, as I carefully read ALL of its description! Looks like this axe wants you to lock on and kill things. And let me tell you, that even though I had 0 skill in axes, I seem to kill everything just as easy when using this thing, as compared to my level 20 something claws. Wow, this is kind of thematic, I think. Trog grants this berserk ability, and legendary berserkers used axes (but no shields), and every time I start the game with Muffin, Trog says; "Kill them all!" < laugh >

That's the good part, now I start realizing some problems; It always re-curses itself, so no throwing large rocks, spear of returning, or slinging. Next is that I didn't want to use weapons, and have concentrated on becoming a nimble, clawing, head-butting, kicking, monk. I'll have to test this weapon some, but it means that I'll need a pile of remove curse scrolls too. Maybe not a good idea to make this a mainstay weapon, but a situational one (?). I'll keep it wielded for now, since looks like all the levels require flight to get around.


Slaughter Time (Or, Berserk Situation #5)

I meet something on one of these isolated islands, and proceed to start hacking it, when out of nowhere, a creature like the ones you see in the abyss, appears - with a little heart next to his picture! Neat! After a few more whacks, I have some more, and some of these guys summon even more! Man-o-man. I have a small army with me now. I'm starting to warm up to this axe even more. So i decide to test something, and see if I can invoke Trog's berserk ability while mesmerized by something - and it works.

Now let me tell you, that while berserked, and at 0 axe skill, I'm one shotting everything. I'm getting really enamored with this wonderful little weapon! I also discovered that if I kill enough things, Trog extends the time I'm berserk. I blew threw a pack of sheep, a type of merfolk with a name like "Iliwusu", a cyclops, and some merfolk - all in one berserk episode.


All right. The game is getting easier and easier now. I feel I can go anywhere, and kill anything. I keep cruising through the levels of the Shoals, my fingers are pressing buttons, nearly on automatic, while my mind starts planning the demise of Nikola, and the dragon named Xtahua. I have a small army of demons accompanying me, as I fly from island to island, slaughtering all before us, then I meet a siren...


This Axe Is Going To Kill Me!(Or, How I Nearly Died By Being Mesmerized)

Should be no problem, although she's drawing me closer to the deep water, I command my demon army to attack her. They move forward, but I see some at the vanguard going down quite quickly, and some of these guys were big demon types. What's this? Oh, javelineers are coming into the fray. I need to back off. Hurry up and kill her, I yell into the computer screen. Paf, paf paf, all my demons are dead, siren is still drawing me forwards, and now I'm starting to take all this javelin fire.

I'm three squares from being drowned! My life is in the yellow. I start shooting my wand of fire, as I saw that one of my fire shooting demons caused steam when he shot into the water. Maybe this will screen me. It works, I lost sight of the siren - but the obsidian axe has locked me onto a javelineer. Damn, I need more cover. I read a scroll of fog.

The siren is back in sight, I'm now two squares from drowning and an impaler and snapping turtle have come within range, so I'm taking hits from these monsters as well. I invoke Trog's Hand, I need some health regeneration fast. I also have to get this axe uncursed, so that I can move away!

I resist the siren, thankfully, still two squares from the deep water. I read a scroll of remove curse. Took a volley of javelins (there are like 6 of them). I get the first "low life" warning message!

Switch to the sling of evasion, I need to be nimble. I resist the sirens song. Life is now at 25! I can die next round...

I blink, as far as I possibly can from anything. Took a javelin all the same, life is around 19.

Big decision; fog or heal wounds potion? I go heal wounds. Didn't do much, as the incoming fire knocked me nearly back as much as I gained.

Read last scroll of fog. I dodged most incoming fire, but the messages with "--more--" was still coming in. Every time I hit the space bar, I thought the next statement was going to be "You die."...

Life is below 10, maybe as low as 6. Still alive though. I read my last scroll of blinking. I'm now within 6 squares of the stairs. Can I make it... (?)

Every step I took, it always made me cringe, as anything which can fire at range, could potentially one hit kill me now.

I made it. Pheeeew!

Cost all my scrolls of fog, and blinking. Oh well, guess life takes precedence over such things. Hope it won't take the dungeon gods another 44,500 turns before they give me some more...

I think I have seen enough of the Shoals, for now. I make a note in the dungeon annotations, and head back to my base at The Hive.

Also; I think we're going to stow the obsidian axe for a bit. At least till I start feeling over confident - which shouldn't be for at least another few days... < laugh! >

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

For Nikolai, you could've used a potion of resistance instead of the staff of air. It only provides temporary rElec, but it should be plenty long enough to kill one target if you haven't completely shut off your damage output by wielding the equivalent of an unenchanted quarterstaff.

Mesmerization won't pull you into lethal terrain, so you were at no risk of actually drowning during the fight in Shoals. You will be forced into shallow water, though, which is troublesome due to the major penalties you get there.

I hear you, KoboldLord. However, when I wrote "I go through my depot, in Hive level 1, to see if I have anything with electrical resistance. Only thing is a staff of air." that's cause it's all I had at the time. A potion of resistance would certainly have worked, as then I could have offed Nikola with likely three or four hits with my claws.

Oh really? I have no way of knowing that, as the game doesn't provide such details. I do know it says that deep water is the demise of any adventurer foolish enough to go in it, or something like that. Mermaids don't pull you with their mesmerization, while sirens do - and sirens have always gone backwards, into deep water, when they caught me. But thank you, I'll make good use of that knowledge.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

All right; let us see where to go now.

I look at the Dungeon Overmap and Annotations screen...

I choose the snake pits, as I've had two vampires enter that already, and have a fairly good idea what monster types are there, and judging by how effective this troll is turning out to be - this should be relatively easy. I ascertain that I have my ring of poison resistance on a finger, and descend the entrance stairs...


Rupert's Last Roar:

Things are going as well as anticipated, somewhere around the second level (if I remember correctly), one of these named humanoid monsters comes into view. I recognized his name immediately, as one of my vampire characters had the toughest time with him as of late. Therefore I took a few minutes to formulate a plan, and implement some tactics. I have typed out the ensuing engagement, for your pleasure...

Rupert comes into view. He is wielding a runed executioner's axe.
You feel like more of a target. You are now empty-clawed.
You mangle the water moccasin!!
You kill the water moccasin!
Trog accepts your kill.
Rupert roars, making you freeze in fear.
You resist.
Rupert yells loudly, causing you to lose all wits.
You resist.
You drop a dog-eared hardcover book.
Rupert roars, making you freeze in fear.
You resist.
Your skin crawls.
You feel resistant to hostile enchantments.
You feel slightly less full.
The spellbook bursts in flames. Trog is delighted!
You feel slightly less full. Rupert is engulfed in roaring flames. You block Rupert's attack.
You hit Rupert. You kick Rupert, but do no damage.
Rupert is lightly wounded.
Rupert is engulfed in roaring flames.
Rupert hits you with a runed executioner's axe!
Rupert burns you.
You claw Rupert!
Rupert is moderately wounded.
Rupert begins to bleed from his wounds!
You claw Rupert! You kick Rupert, but do no damage.
Rupert is moderately wounded.
Rupert is engulfed in roaring flames. Rupert misses you.
You hit Rupert, but do no damage. You kick Rupert, but do no damage.
Rupert is moderately wounded.
You mangle Rupert!!
Rupert is severely wounded.
You barely miss Rupert. Rupert is engulfed in roaring flames.
Rupert roars madly and goes into a rage!
Rupert goes berserk!
You hit Rupert, but do no damage. You headbutt Rupert.
Rupert is almost dead.
Rupert is engulfed in roaring flames. You block Rupert's attack.
You mangle Rupert!!
You kill Rupert!
Trog accepts your kill.
Your Shields skill increases to level 13!
Things that are here:
an executioner's axe of flaming; a shiny dwarven chain mail



After that satisfying outcome, things were relatively uneventful, until I met a red naga, on the lowest level...


This red naga somehow poisoned me with a spell, which was quite an enlightening moment for me, since the character screen says that I am poison resistant (!?). Not only that, but it was quite a strong form of poison, as well.

I kept at him though, figuring a couple more successful claw strikes would bring him down, and although he was also hitting me with a runed great mace, I figured I'd win the battle with enough health left, and then just recover some before pressing on. When he spelled me again and I became unstable and the "Tele" enchantment appeared in the top right of my screen, warning signal started sounding in my mind.

I was just in the yellow numbers of my health range, and my brain was saying that this could be the starting sequence of compounding an otherwise irrelevant situation. I held off a round, and asked Trog for his Hand, and my skin started to crawl. Although it cost food and some Trog *'s, better to be safe than sorry, cause this game has a tendency to take some sudden twists, as you may well have noticed in your own crawl careers.

And: Sure enough, When he was almost dead, I teleported and landed right in the midst of a whole slew of nagas, in a huge open area...



Help From A Ternary of Trolls (Or, Brothers In Arms Situation #5, #6, and #7):

So then; at half health, amongst red, blue, mauve and green nagas. No cover from terrain anywhere nearby. No certain way of escape, other than a scroll of telportation - which can sometimes be worst, if you read my last encounter with Nikola and the hydra...

I wasn't as concerned as the situation in the Shoals, though. This wasn't good, but didn't seem as dire. So after studying the screen for a few minutes, I decided to try calling in some help, creating other targets besides me, and hopefully through tactical placement of my character, find a safe(r) area to either take these guys on one at a time - or get some recovery time from this poisoning in.

I asked Trog for a brother, and a green troll arrived. I was somewhat disappointed, as I never received such a (lowly) green troll before. I tried to take a tactical sidestep, interposing as many blue/green nagas between me and the mauve /red types. Then I took another poison bolt, and went into the red letters of the poison enchantment on my display.

Damn, need more help, that's for certain. I asked Trog for someone else, and he sent a rock (brown) troll. More nagas started appearing on the edge of vision, looks like this is an even bigger room than I had imagined. The green troll engaged and killed a mauve naga, while the rock troll was between me and a red one. Trog's hand was maintaining my health, but for how much longer it would last, compared to this damage intake, I didn't know.

I asked Trog for another brother, and an iron troll came. Then something dawned on me; "Brothers In Arms", means you get something of your own species - as I have always gotten some kind of troll. Neat, I'll make a note and try a vampire with the god Trog, in the future...

So, back to the fight; it's pretty big, us 4 trolls have each 3 nagas next to each us, with about another 12 closing in. The green ones are relatively easy, but the blue ones are tougher. The mauve ones cast spells, and move very fast, while the red are quite tough, hard hitting with big weapons, and cast big poison and teleport spells. I did the best I could to help my brothers, but with my life constantly in the yellow and touching the red, I had to take rounds off for some potions of heal wounds and healing.

I wanted to invoke berserk on myself, but always held off. I needed the ability to do other things too. I got teleported two more times - but always ended up in that big room. Managed to get back near my brothers though, and was very happy to see how well they were holding up. That green troll, which I was initially disappointed in seeing - he got "more experienced" three times throughout the scrap.

Eventually, they started disappearing, but had helped out tremendously. The naga hordes were down to a few isolated ones, and some various snake types. Only concern was the anacondas, because two on one, they could put out decent hurt on me.

Finally, I was the only one standing in that big room, and proceeded to recuperate life, eat, and take stock of the costs. I used two healing potions, two heal wounds potions, and lost a * of Trog's favor. I suppose the Brothers in Arms is the most expensive, since it comes last on the religious abilities list.



While collecting and sifting through all the piles in the big room here, I discovered a "Rune of Zot". It's a good thing I right clicked on it, for it's description before picking it up, as it has not appeared in my inventory. The only place I can now find it, is in the Discovered Items screen ("\'). The game says I need it to enter a special area, or gate. Time will tell, when I'll require its special ability, I guess.

On the plus side though; the snake pits have yielded a few potions, scrolls, rings, wands, and another pile of weapons to be determined for potential usefullness. I'm going back to my depot in the Hive to take stock of everything, and then decide the next mission...

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

The naga mage hit you with Poison Arrow. In the hands of both players and monsters, it can inflict heavy poisoning (and a good chunk of direct damage) on even the poison-resistant, as you saw.
You fall off the wall. You have a feeling of ineptitude.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Congratulations on finding your first rune! That's a big milestone.

Also, in case you weren't already aware, wearing a shield as an unarmed fighter reduces your damage pretty significantly, since it prevents you from getting extra attacks from that hand. Troll berserkers have such overkill offense and so few defensive options that it might be worth putting up with it anyway, though. The only troll I ever played died of a brain implosion in the Lair caused by test-IDing a potion of degeneration, so I can't say from personal experience.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Then something dawned on me; "Brothers In Arms", means you get something of your own species - as I have always gotten some kind of troll.


Just to save you some grief with a Vampiro-zerker later, the "Brothers" are not tied to your player species (though that might be interesting...seeing a horde of psycho-kittens appear when your felid berserker invokes Trog...)

I think you might be correct, could have been "poison arrow" instead of "poison bolt". In either case, it is quite the impressive spell, considering I was poison resistant at the time. I shall note this, and when I start playing my vampire wizard again, I'll have him learn it, and give it a good testing. :)

Thank you. I am learning constantly.
It's the first time I play a monk, a troll, and a follower of Trog. So quite a few "firsts" right there too.
Yes, this characters' claws seem to be quite the offensive weapon. I'm quite impressed, compared to what I normally play. However, due to the associated food cost, and the amount necessary to keep this guy going, I have been very stingy on the amount of times I have berserked. This is why the instances are all numbered in my log. Else-wise, I would be berserking a lot more often.
Yes, the shield has proven to be massively handy in some situations, and above average useful in defense most of the time.
Hehe - I'm not in the game presently, but I believe that I have already taste identified that potion... Actually; let me see if I did. I'll fire up crawl to check...
Yes, it is in my list of discovered items. I don't remember it affecting my brain though (?). Something has tried, maybe some kind of worm, like a brain worm - should those exist?

Oh. Well, guess I assumed wrong. However, every time I have asked Trog for a 'Brother In Arms', it has always been a troll - so far. That's how I came to that conclusion. After playing this character, and the food problems I am constantly juggling with, a vampire was looking attractive to me, as I know I can swing those to extremes.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Okay; looking at the dungeon branches and annotations screen, and considering all the newly acquired loot from the snake pits, we're going to clean up some loose ends.

I'll start from the top and work my way down. I pick up all the special gear I'll require for all of these missions, because coming back to the depot between each consumes time - and time is bad for trolls, I see, as they require an incredible amount of food.

I go through everything in my mind one more time, check my inventory screen, and off to the orcish mines area.



Ogre Mangling (Or Berserk Situation #6):

There's deep water, preventing me from finishing the exploration, but with the new ring of levitation, I don't need (nor want) to wield the obsidian axe. This was an interesting area, as I discovered three individual caves, all separated by deep water barriers, and in the last one, I came face to face with Erolcha.

Erolcha, is a magic using ogre, not to worry except that she is classified as an ogre mage - which makes her extremely dangerous due to the banishment potential. So I immediately berserk and clawed her to near death, when she blinked behind a throng of two-headed ogres. Damn, I couldn't withdraw, so blew through the one that was directly blocking my path to her, took the hits from all the others (there were 4), and killed her. Then I turned and killed the rest.

I'm so surprised that this game allows the use of a shield while under the influence of berserk rage. I've been playing games for a long time, and this is the only one that I am aware of, that has deviated from the traditional. Consider that like, even when one is confused, Crawl does not allow a shield.



Next on the list, was on hive level 2. Lots of water areas here, but the one in particular I couldn't get at before, now yielded a pile of loot. I had to claw some plants while levitating too, in order to break through that area.



Nikola Not So Insulated After All (Or, Berserk Situation #7):

Next was dealing with Nikola, for (hopefully) once and for all. I entered his level of residence, and started hunting for him. When I found him, he was 6 squares away, and hadn't noticed me. Good. I ducked back around a corner. Even though he was no longer in my line of sight, and depending on where he moved, that would place him anywhere from 6 to 8 squares from me. That's still well enough for shouting range. I then shouted for attention ("t" and then "t" again). I was answered by a deep croaking sound (!?). What? Man, I hope not too many other monsters in the area respond...

So that took one turn, I now had from five to seven more, before Nikola would be strutting around the corner. I made sure I had my claws ready, and the ring of magic resistance. All's good, so I start hitting the "." key, while waiting, and the next turn a giant frog popped around the corner. Quick - I have to kill this thing. It took me two turns. Then a giant toad skeleton popped around the corner. I start clawing that thing, and a turn after Nikola came into view.

I couldn't take any chances, had to to quaff the potion of resistance right now. Nikola at range two, meant that a lightning arc attack would virtually guarantee four hits on me. I drank the potion, and Nikola muttered something, while the giant toad skeleton missed me. I asked Trog to become berserk, and Nikola threw a lightning bolt in my direction. It missed the giant toad skeleton, hit me, bounced off the wall behind me, and hit me on the rebound. After I looked at the text, I looked at my health. I had taken the grand total of two damage to my health. I smiled at the computer screen, and said; "All right Nikola, let me get my claws on you..."

I stepped around the giant toad skeleton, to place me next to Nikola, and started the raging claws of evisceration assault on his entrails. Two rounds later his life bar was in the red, and he let loose with a chain lightning arc spell. It bounced between me, the giant toad skeleton, and Nikola himself. At the end, it had killed them both! < laugh >

When I was slow and exhausted, three orc warriors, a priest, a few regular orcs, and a troll descended on me. No doubt due to the extreme noise from the fight with Nikola. But I took them all on right away, in spite of my enchantments, and never felt threatened. This troll is turning out to be such a different experience from most of my other characters, as he readily accepts combat situations much more liberally then I'm normally used to.



That left Roxanne, as my next mission, and she fell in five claw swipes, where I suffered but one bolt of something like magma. She yielded an ancient artifact spellbook. I hope Trog will be extra happy when I burn it...



Next was an ice statue, on an island, in the middle of a big lake, on dungeon level 19. Big pile of loot was surrounding it, so well worth the effort in neutralizing it. I now have 16 large rocks, in total. < smile >



This is going quite well. I'm accomplishing everything nearly like clockwork. Now I'm at the stairs to the vaults level 2, changing into my fire fighting equipment. Even though my AC has been cut by over half, I decided to change before descending and hunting for the Xtahua dragon. Else wise I'd have to get away from it long enough, in order to do so, and something could come along and ruin my "perfect plans". <laugh>


The 240 Aum Chunk of Flesh (Or, Berserk Situation #8):

I check everything one more time, even the character screen, to make certain that I have three stars of fire resistance (robe of fire resistance, and a ring of fire resistance on each hand). All looks good...

So I go down the stairs and start hunting for the big red dragon with a name, and eventually come upon him at range of 6 squares. I stop, and ask Trog for his hand, I have left nothing to chance. Now I start walking backwards, maintaining distance, cause I want to test how well I take the fire blast, this time...

Come on, it's been six turns now, we've been dancing at range, and he still hasn't breathed on me. Maybe the monsters can detect when you're impervious to a particular attack? So I stop, one square from the stairs, and just wait, while he closes the distance...

Xtahua, never breathed on me, but the bites and trample attacks was killing me. So much so that he pushed me onto the stairs, and then off again. I'm at 90 health, and start clawing him. Better take him down, and we'll save the fire experiment for another game, or whatever...

Then a giant of some sorts shows up. Damn, I hope there's not a lot more behind him. This dragon has to go down now - I berserk. I completely annihilate Xtahua on the very next hit. Wow! What I clawing machine I am!

I head straight for the giant now, I may as well get some more mileage out of this berserk enchantment. He was alone, it turns out, so I made my way back to Xtahua's body, cause when I right clicked on it, I saw that it weighed the incredible amount of 240 aums! I chopped it up, instead of offering it to Trog, cause I really wanted to see how many chunks of meat it would give me...

Five (?!?).

Five measly morsels. Whoopee. Like, a yak or a centaur, can give me that much! Oh well, I chew on the meal, and change back into my normal attire. Now that all my "clean-up" missions are over, and since I have room in inventory for loot, I'll finish exploring this level...



Mennas The Magnificent (Or, Brothers In Arms Situation #8, #9, and #10):

I turned around a corner, of one of these rooms you find in the vaults, and am immediately within an area of mauve squares. I froze at the keyboard, as I know exactly what that is (I have a high level vampire hexer, you see). It's the area where the silence spell, from the hexes magic skill, where you can't use anything that requires words. No scroll reading, no invocation abilities, and no spell use (don't apply to Muffin, though). And there's only one monster that I'm aware of, which has this ability. As I trace with my eyes on the computer screen, where the center point is, sure enough I see the picture of Mennas, the demented mean angel...

Great. Not one of my characters has been able to beat this guy yet - not even my high level vampires...

I go through all the screens, and see exactly what, if anything, I can do, besides move. Only thing avialble is to evoke my shield - which is at poor rating any ways, and not something that would help, because Mennas can see invisible, of course.

Okay. Time for a coffee and a smoke. Need to do some serious thinking and come up with a plan...

Quite some time later, I'm back at the computer. I have a plan for an assault, but somehow lack the confidence in its success. Therefore, I also have one to escape...

I quaff (my only) potion of speed. Need to get clear of the silence area, in order to have access to more abilities. This Mennas dude is fast, took me longer than anticipated to be able to speak. But when I had two turns of free time, I asked Trog for his hand, and called in a brother in arms. Trog sent a green troll, which raged and went for Mennas. I cheered, as I remember how good the last one turned out in the snake pits!

I put on my ring of magic resistance, and started stepping back to see how things would develop.

The green troll wasn't landing any blows, on Mennas (which I figured would be difficult any way), Whatever blows got through to Mennas, he would block with his shield. so I called in another, and Trog sent a rock troll.

The rock troll moved next to the angel picture, and Mennas confused it. On the next turn, the rock troll killed the green troll. <sad face >

I called in a third brother, and Trog sent an iron troll. The rock troll started wandering off somewhere, and I never saw it again. Mennas confused the iron troll, and killed it in two hits.

Mennas now started to cast spells at me personally, and thankfully I resisted. A frown was forming on my face, and with pressed lips I concluded that; I've now seen enough, and still under the effects of speed, pulled the plug on the assault and went to escape, while I still could.


I made an annotation, when safely away, for the level. This appearance of Mennas, is going to put a severe limitation on further exploration of the vaults branch. I should feel quite satisfied, as having accomplishing all I wanted to, this session, however; this Mennas encounter has cast a foreboding feeling of despair on me. I have also lost another "*" of Trog's favor, towards me, with asking for his hand and and several brothers, lately. For now, I'll keep it in the back of my mind, and hopefully either find something that has an "anti-angelic" marking on it, else devise some intuitive plan in the future.


For now though: Back to the depot at the hive, sort through and identify some of the new loot, and then figure out the next mission...

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Oh. Well, guess I assumed wrong. However, every time I have asked Trog for a 'Brother In Arms', it has always been a troll - so far. That's how I came to that conclusion. After playing this character, and the food problems I am constantly juggling with, a vampire was looking attractive to me, as I know I can swing those to extremes.


Vampires can't berserk unless they're well satiated (forget the exact level, but it's either "neutral" (no indicator) or "full").

If you request enough Brothers (and you've been remarkably sparing in your use of them so far, from what I can see) you'll also see e.g. Ogres and Giants.
See: http://crawl.develz.org/info/index.php?q=brothers+in+arms.

Personally, I'd like it if there were more variety in the "Brothers", but that would probably end up nerfing it a bit (which may not be a bad thing...)

On the upside, at least as a Troll you've got gourmand, so you can stuff yourself to the brim. Most other races actually have a much harder time balancing hunger and berserk use.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

I enjoy your stories a lot so far, nice read on a short break from work.

Mennas is one of the most dangerous enemies. you should be able to kill him without too many problems (when berserking), but if you are in doubt: don't.
btw, berserk gives you might+haste, quaffing a potion of speed (or might) does nothing in addition.

good luck with your game!

I can tell you that it is definitely at "Full" and "Alive" status. I have two vampires currently on hold. I went to the Mutations and Associated Weirdness screen, and once there right click on it. It then lists all the things a vampire can do and its associated resistances, depending on the blood levels.

I won't go to that link, for now. I'm quite happy with finding out most things on my own. I'm writing out some adventures, because some people in another thread found my descriptions entertaining. One was galehar, who showed me how to find the morgue files on my computer, and I discovered that he is one of the game programers. So they can read what goes through the mind of a newbie, and maybe give them ideas on how to improve the game from that point of view. If I have any specific questions that I'd like an answer to; I'll place them in such a way that it is obvious.

I hardly berserk and use the other Trog abilities exactly opposite of what you're saying. I find that this troll requires so much food intake, that I really try to use abilities which cost food in use, to a minimum. Then again, I'm no expert, but this is my perception.

Thanks for the info though, I know you want to help out. Speaking of which; I have two specific questions in another thread - you can find it here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2414
Feel free to try and answer those. :)

Thank you, my pleasure. I find that it is what we ourselves "put" into a game, that makes it enjoyable. Crawl certainly provides an excellent framework from which to use this dimension.

I most certainly do not feel comfortable taking him out in direct melee, at this point in time. But you'll soon discover that my little troll brain, is constantly working on a solution to the Mennas problem. ;)

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Hey All.

I should have mentioned in my last post, how I like the way the game sometimes warns you of things. If you look at the text in the character file I posted above, you'll see a line telling me about burning my feet, perhaps not being the smartest thing to do. And although, I'm playing a troll, not known for their intelligence, I appreciate the warning(s).

I also very much enjoy the way we can enter annotations for the different, and individual levels. If you have been following Muffin's progress in detail - through the various character dumps I have posted - you'll see how I keep (and have kept) track of what equipment I need, and the things to do. If anything though, I find that I do not have enough space to type all the things I would like to, sometimes.



So then, I'm studying the dungeon levels and annotations screen, and what remains to be done...

Although I have good regeneration abilities as a troll, I have no desire on entering the Slime Pits. I have entered them once lifetime, with my vampire wizard, and left almost immediately. Everything hurts you there - including the walls I found. Perhaps it is an entire branch, made of but a single gigantic organism (the walls are alive), I don't know... (?)

I'm still no where near confident on going back to the shoals...

And obviously, with Mennas lurking about, the vaults are now off limits...

Not much left: Guess it's back to the big dungeon. I start assembling a kit of potions, scrolls, rings, food stocks, etc. Let's see how far I can get...



I'm in the 20's now, concerning dungeon levels cleared (my Crawl record currently stands at 23), and am getting quite interested in what lurks at these depths...

I'm on a certain level, seems like they were having a stone giant get together. Gave me some more large rocks, so many in fact, that I had to leave two piles behind. Which incidentally. meant that it was the first time I hit the point where I could not carry everything due to weight constraints, with this character. Trolls have amazing strength attribute!

I came to a door, and the game text gave me a message like; "Are you certain you want to test the ultimate power?" I pondered for a moment, wondering what could possibly be beyond this door (?). I'll clear the rest of the level, and come back to it...

That done, and confident that I'll be unmolested by wondering monsters, I'm now back at the door. My god is Trog, and his message to me has always been: "Kill Them All!" So; of course I'm certain that I want to test whatever is beyond this door! I open it and see four granite statues, and an angel - which has the question mark next to its picture.

So then; the ultimate power is that of an angel? It could very well be, as I have never fought an angel yet, in Crawl - and my mind goes back to the recent encounter with Mennas, so perhaps these are quite the powerful type of monster. I'm about to try and draw it out of the room, and into the corridor, lest there are a pile of angels in the area that I can not yet see. Then I get another thought...

I think that I'll spare this angel, and come back to tangle with it as a dedicated mission. I'll test various things on it, and then maybe come up with an idea on how to slay Mennas.

Yes, this is "the smart" thing to do, I conclude, so close the door and make my way to the next lower level for exploration...



A Degustation of Demons (Or, Berserk Situation #9):

This next level, is rife with all types of deep elf monsters. This is actually a good thing, since Trog is especially happy with each kill I accomplish, in his name.

One particular group, had a priest and a demonoligist, imbedded with the usual fighters, knights, and warriors. The smiting was a pain, but the priest blinked near enough to me during the fight, that I quickly taught him how much I liked him invoking the power of his god, upon me. In fact, I enjoy it so much, that I make it a point to eat them after I mangle them.

That must have phased the demonoligist somewhat, cause he changed his spell use, and started summoning a horde of demons...

Not so bad, as long as I have room to maneuver some, but this guy was smart, and summoned most of them behind me, so I was boxed in with the elves mostly in front, and the demon horde behind me. One of these was an executioner, and my eyes widened, as this is supposed to be quite the monster! For reference to what I mean, see here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2311

I asked Trog for his hand, and pretty well ignoring everything else surrounding me, started concentrating all my attacks on this executioner. Things were going well, between us, pretty even fight, until he cast a spell and wracked my body with pain. Then he did something to speed himself up, not wanting to be showed up, I followed with my own version - berserk!

Took two rounds and it poofed in a puff of smoke when I killed it. That was good feeling, but I was still in the midst of over 12 monsters, and couldn't gloat over that victory for too long. Next on my drop list, was this demonoligist, before he summons up the entire level full of demons (!). I blew through whatever was between me and him, and clawed him to death quick enough - next was taking down in order, what I thought was the most dangerous, until the berserk enchantment wore off.

Things were compounded, as every single deep elf I massacred, was resurrected by a demon in the back ranks. However, When my rage subsided, thankfully, only a few deep elves, some imps, and one or two demons remained, so although slow and exhausted, they were no match for me, considering that Trog's Hand was still in effect. All told; here's the listing of demons I took on this fight; executioner, 2x smite demons, 2x poison demons, 2x mind feeding demons, 2x fire belching demons, a resurrecting demon, and about six small imp type demons.

This situation was noteworthy, because now I have tasted quite a number of demon types, and should I ever be banished to the abyss, I have an idea how I'll perform when faced with any...



I've noticed that the dungeon in the 20's definitely has ramped up its resistance to Muffin's progress on exploring it. The monster types are getting bigger and more powerful - no hobgoblins to be seen anywhere here! But I persevere with confidence - I'm starting to get a good "feel" on how to play this troll, and also haven't consumed hardly a thing from my kit of disposable items, that I have designated as acceptable for this session's mission.



Mara The Misleading:

I just slaughtered some ogres, and a demon called "Mara", comes into view...

I've never met this guy before, so I go through everything the game gives, when I right click on his picture...

Okay; I'm going to assume that he must have a fire attack, or something, as it is one of his resistances and his picture is colored in red. The part about weaving illusions to even the mightiest spellcasters - I snicker at. That certainly won't apply to me - I am but a dumb troll of Trog! < laugh! > But; I'll maintain distance all the same, and see what Mara might have up his sleeves. I put on a ring of fire resistance, then start stepping back and away, from his position...

I'm not going to describe how the encounter went in sequence, but I'll list a series of surprises:

- The first one being that I had a gut wrenching sensation and there is now what appears to be a ghost of me! I right click on this picture, and see that although it may look like a ghost, it is actually described as an illusion. Hmmm...

- Next surprise was that Mara loves to blink. He was blinking all over the place throughout the encounter.

- The following surprise was some kind of enchantment he put on me called "misslead". I went to the game help section on enchantments ("?" then "5"), and of course, this one was not listed either...

- Mara split into (at least) three duplications of himself.

- Mara has a flame shooting attack. Not a surprise per say, as previously surmised, I expected some sort of fire based attack. But still, this meant he could blink and shoot me at range, amongst his other weapons. And in an open area, that could be deadly with several Maras' about!

- Mara hit me with a demonblade of poisoning several times, and he hit hard!

- After I killed my illusion, Mara made another, and this time my illusion would shoot pain throughout my body, whenever it clawed me! I suppose that, every time I kill my illusion it comes back with stronger abilities.

I was in some interweaving corridors, and I really did not want to get out in the open with this guy. Who knows how many Maras' I would then be facing! I didn't have enough hands, for all the types of rings I wanted to wear, so I could be protected from; fire; poisoning, magic, and whatever else. I had asked Trog for his hand, in the initial stages of the encounter, and I'm so happy I resisted all my urges to berserk. It is unlikely that I would have been able to kill all the Maras' and myself before it wore off. When I was down to half life, I read a scroll of teleportation, and tried to defend myself till it (thankfully) got me out of there, and dropped me right next to the up-stairs.

I was somewhat bewildered by Mara's powers, he certainly has some tricks to figure out!

Still, I'm confident I can take him down. I managed to land some claw attacks on him and he was not impervious to those. I'm also somewhat pissed, that he thinks he can laugh at me, like he did back there. So I'm immediately going back to the depot at the hive, and I'm going to put together a package of items tailored specifically to take him out. No way I'm letting him go, as he's blocking my planned progress through the dungeon...

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

the illusions don't get stronger, and they reflect your character when they are created.

dunno if you want any tips, from your previous posts i guess not, so i won't spoil you with anti-mara-tactics :)

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Without being too spoily, I'll repeat what slowcar said: your illusion has your own combat abilities at the time that it is created. To weaken the illusion's abilities, weaken your own temporarily. There are ways to do it that are not inherently crippling.
You fall off the wall. You have a feeling of ineptitude.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Note: I identified some things, since I was at the depot any ways, and one scroll gave me extra attempts. I wasn't prepared for it, so got caught with only that which was already in my inventory. So on a whim, I used it on the obsidian axe, and it came out at +10, +15. That's incredible! The nicest weapon I ever saw, was a short blade that Okawaru gave my vampire, at +9, +5. Like if you look at all the weapon descriptions in game, the highest they can go is +9, +9. I might have found one of the best weapons in the game, with this obsidian axe here. I may have to re-evaluate its worthiness...


Preparations:

It's getting late at night, and I have to work the next day. I look at the clock on my desk, and shake my head at spending time at the computer playing Crawl, when I should be getting sleep. But I want to get this Mara situation over with right away, as there are certain things fresh in my mind - and since I'm presently all tuned into the proper channels...

First thing, is to go to my armour pile, and pick up this dragon hide, called Xtahua. Remember when I wanted to see the amount of food it would give me, in a previous session? It also left behind a hide. Well, I didn't mention it then, but now it may have become pertinent. You see, after I read its description, I tried to inscribe it. I was so amazed that it gave so little food, that I wanted to say; "Xtahua hide - belonged to a dragon, but yielded the meat of a quail!" But, for some reason, no matter how many times I tried, the game would not let me inscribe it with anything? So now I'm thinking, that maybe it has some kind of special enchantment on it, and that's why I can't change its inscription.

All that to say, that I'll try and use a scroll of enchant armour on it, and see how it turns out. I wielded it, and read the scroll. First time I actually ever try to purposely enchant a piece of armour, so feel kind of dumb to report to you, that the game gave me a choice of all armour type items, in my inventory, from which to use it on. There is no need to actually wield the desired item. < blush >

So I try it out now, and see that it gives two *'s of fire resistance. Good, this will eliminate the need of a ring of fire resistance.

Next; I swap my regular cloak of preservation, for that of Nikola - which is poison resistance. That will now eliminate the need of another ring.

I remember something, about potions of healing. I right click on them, and carefully read its description, especially the part: "Clears the mind." Okay, I'll bring some extra ones. Eight should do.

I go to my pile of amulets, and pick up one of clarity. I carefully read its description as well. Okay, This might help as well. I'll wear that instead of Okawaru's Favor (By the way, Okawaru must be pissed that I am wearing his amulet, and have offed his champion, Wiglaf, in the name of Trog - laugh!).

Now I go to my wand pile, and pick one of cold. I remember Mara's description saying something like susceptible to cold. This will be in case he keeps blinking away from my claws.

Now I finish with the +6 ring of protection, and the ring of magic resistance.

I look at myself in the character screen, and go through all my tailored gear, AC, and resistances. I got some things to counteract his; fire, poison, demonblade damage, general magic, and (hopefully) illusions. I also have an effective ranged attack, and the ol' claws for 'close in disembowelment' work. Okay - I think we're set.

I might be a dumb troll of Trog, but I'm also resourceful. If this works out, I'm going to savor the moment when I claw that smirk right off of Mara's demonic face!

Since this is going to be a straight to the goal, sub-mission of my main one, I keep this gear on and hit the "CTRL + SHFT + F" command, and with some adjustments, line up the cross hairs right on the last known location of Mara.

Before I continue; I must also mention that I really like this command (and the "CTRL + G" command too), in Crawl. It saves so much button pushing, when you know exactly where you want to travel to. Also, it automatically stops when encountering something new, or a monster - so no need to worry about making a mistake, like pushing one of the number buttons too many times and running into the ettin, in order to give it a hug. < laugh! >

Anyways; so while I'm watching my character zoom through the dungeon, I'm thinking what could be the worst thing that I could possibly run into - since I'm not wearing my usual equipment? I'm thinking an ice devil, would probably be bad, since I have a big red "X", for cold resistance.

My character has now reached the level that Mara is on, and it stops in a big open area. This is well before Mara's last known location, and when I see the picture of the monster - I immediately look at the text, at the bottom of the screen; "You feel that the ice dragon is too close for your comfort now."

Uh no...

Well, I'll spare you the details, because this was nothing compared to what was about to follow. However I certainly discovered how much a red "X" hurts when you get the frost breadth thrown at you. < sad face > The dumb troll finally figured out that putting a ring of cold resistance on was the smart thing to do, for further traveling until I reached my goal. Also had to take a good rest, cause my health had been thrown into the yellow numbers.

The time on the clock on my desk ticked on, but I'm almost there. Soon I'll feel Mara in the clasp of my claws, and then I'll go to sleep. We'll just carefully keep going the old fashioned way, and take it one step at a time. So I hit a key on the number pad, and the game said: You hear a loud "zot!"



The Never Ending Battle Of Debilitation And Depletion... (Or, Berserk Situation #10 to #13):


I'm transported across the level to an area yet unexplored. I'm in a corridor, two squares wide. I see four wights, eight rakshashas, like six ugly things, a centaur captain, a hill giant, some orcs, a vampire knight (first time I ever see one in my Crawl career), another ice dragon, probably some other stuff too, which I forget, but you get the picture.

Now get this; if you think that ain't enough, the corridor has some blue transparent windows, and there's even more stuff on the other side of it, Like things you see in the abyss and...

FOUR BOGGARTS!

Every monster - and their sister - are shouting, of course. And this is when I discover that boggarts can summon things - on the other side of blue dungeon windows! So I'm now surrounded, by a pile of extra summonings, too.

Okay... The specific Mara slaying mission, is now off. The new mission is going to be; how am I going to survive this long enough, so that I can stabilize things, and therefore get some sleep...

The battle had been ongoing for over an hour. I managed to get to a corner, where I found a plant, and therefore could have (only) four monsters immediately surrounding me at a time. It was like the prior boggart encounter (see a previous post in this thread), all over again, but the monster levels were higher.

I switched several pieces of equipment during the fight, depending on the types of monsters I was currently facing, so got poisoned, sickened, rotted, frozen, and even paralyzed! That scared me the most, as I just stood there taking hit after hit - seeing the word "--more--", over and over, while each hit of the space bar just brought up more text of attacks on me. Somehow I survived that, and killed the vampire knight, through one of my berserk episodes.

When I thought I had the situation stabilized enough, well enough that I felt that I was not going to die in the next few rounds or so, I saved the game and wearily went to sleep. It was past 4 AM... < groan >

...

The next day, I turned back to the game at hand, but since I knew how involved my character currently was in a major engagement, only when I knew I could devote all my attention to it. So it was late at night again, after the family had gone to bed.

The fight was incessant, the monsters unrelenting, My character was slowly, but surely being sapped of life, attributes, and items. I saw very very ugly things on a regular basis, as well yaktaur packs, and various demons, etc. I'm massively impressed with Muffin's ability to take so much damage, over time, and still be able to take down so many enemies. I had asked Trog for his hand four times though, and did invoke berserk four times as well. I also find it somewhat incredible,
that this plant besides me, survived the entire ordeal too - it helped tremendously!

You may wonder why I just didn't read a scroll of teleportation, and be done with it? Well, I have only two left. That's it. Who knows when I'll find more. The game has been very cheap with scrolls of teleportation, and worst with blinking. On the other hand, I have found over 30 scrolls of remove curse.

I felt a moment of anguish, when a boggart had blinked right next to me, and when I went to claw it, I got a message saying that my armour prevented me from hitting it. It blnked away on the next round of course. So my wonderful plans on offing Mara, and enchanting Xtahua's hide, actually became a detriment, in this situation. < laugh - but not too much >

The monster types, I was fighting, would often start to retreat, when I got them in the red. But since they were always immediately replaced by something else waiting behind them, I often had to deal with them several times over. This was another thing which was sapping my good humor.

All told, this epic battle lasted near 900 turns, and I killed 142 monsters. Most I never got experience for, as they were likely all summoned. Additional costs were about four potions of healing, a potion of heal wounds, and two potions of agility. Myself, being so tense the whole time in my chair, I was exhausted again, for a second night in a row...



Dazed And Confused At The Orange Crystal Statue:

That room, which had windows in the corridor, contained an orange crystal statue, in the middle of a lava lake. It confused me, and I dared not hit any keys at all! Not even the "." key, as I knew what that might lead to. Again, I was mortified, actually felt worst then when the vampire knight paralyzed me the night earlier. I really did not see what I could possibly do to get out of this one. Any key I hit, had the potential of putting me into the lava.

I stopped the game, and took a rest, for another day. And while at work - my mind constantly on the Crawl game - I remembered that there was something in the rules, about this enchantment...

When I got home, I turned on the computer, started Crawl and went to the instructions, and there it was, in section 5. "drink a potion of healing for immediate cure"

With a trembling finger, I tried that and was cured from the confusion enchantment! I then immediately took a step - out of its line of sight. Pheeeew!

I had to destroy it though, because there were two rings and an unidentified scroll near it. Hoping one was a ring of sustenance (another thing that I have not found this game, but when playing a vampire, I find like six!).

Going invisible would be tricky, because the path to it was a long one for this troll's ability. It would take twelve turns simply to reach it, and then, judging from other past statues I killed, from 3 to 6 more to claw it. I had a few potions of healing remaining though - good thing I brought down a bunch more for the anticipated fight with Mara, and decided to go for it...

I flickered back into view, the turn I destroyed it. The rings were not any of sustenance. But one of the new rings was sustain abilities, and since my intelligence is now at 2, I happily put it on. I guess the dungeon has decided to provide what I need at the moment... < laugh >

Good news, trying to find my way back to the known upstairs, I found two scrolls of blinking. I feel somewhat more
satisfied now.


Needless to say, my will and burning desire to get Mara, from a few days ago, has now subsided. And with diminished attributes, and dwindling supplies, I have little want to meet him presently. I won't chance the 'master of illusions' with my current troll intellect of two. I'm heading back to the depot, at the hive, and take a break for the night.

No, but thanks. If I knew all there was to know, then it would cease being a game, to me.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

All right, I feel rested and fresh. Let's organize some items from inventory to the various piles in the depot, and take stock of what we have. Then we''ll give the Mara demon another attempt...

Sifting through my piles, I get another idea: I verify the character screen, and then again what I'm like with a staff of enchantment. Okay, I'm now quite resistant to hostile enchantments, and combined with the ring, I'm very resistant. That might further improve things. And perhaps it'll be harder for Mara to do his mind tricks on me. And while I'm at it, I'll also bring a potion of brilliance. Maybe being more intelligent, will help too...


Haughty Mara Mangled (Or Berserk Situation #14):

This time, there were no unwanted deviations, on my journey to Mara's last known location. I found him soon enough, and with the staff of enchantment in hand, quickly ducked around the nearest corner. I drank a potion of restore abilities, and followed it with the one of brilliance. One last check through all my gear and the character screen...

Looks good. I step back out into his line of sight, and start heading for him...

Soon enough, Mara had wrenched my guts, and an illusion of me appeared. I right clicked on it, so that I could write here exactly a certain part of its description: "An illusion of Muffin the Wrestler, a mighty Troll Monk of Trog."

Well... I hope things work out logically, because since it is an illusion - it can not be real. Therefore, it cannot hurt me. Let's keep repeating that, until the troll brain understands it. After a few minutes of this exercise in the power of suggestion; I ignore my illusion, and keep treking towards Mara...

The ensuing engagement went much better than my first encounter with him. Although he created two more duplicates of himself, I was resisting all the other concerns I had before. The fire damage - besides burning some scrolls - was much more manageable. I was not getting poisoned by his demonblade - although he still hit me hard enough with it. I was making saving throw after saving throw, versus whatever else he was trying to spell me with too (!). So all these magic resistance items were certainly paying off.

What I did have a problem with, and now that I think about it more carefully as I write this, was dealing significant damage to all the individual duplicates of Mara. The staff of enchantment just wasn't cutting it, and anything that hurt him with any kind of results, was either my occasional head-butts, or kicks. Compounding this, was that distributing this damage over three Maras', due to him blinking so much, was making very slow progress.

I killed a Mara, but knew I didn't get the real one, because Trog didn't acknowledge the kills. So with low health, I went up a stairwell, to recuperate some. After a quick snack, I went back down for another round with Mara, and his tricks...

This time, I tried throwing some large rocks at him. If you left click on the picture in inventory, you can throw things, even though they are not quivered - and this meant I could still have the staff of enchantment wielded. The wand of cold was giving adequate results, but with three Mara's, I was afraid I wouldn't have enough charges to get them all. Best to conserve it for killing shots, when he had his life in the red.

This tactic was doing okay, not much better, but certainly better than whacking him with the staff. In retrospect, it is unfortunate I did not work on my throwing skill more, as I would have connected more often. Eventually, I ran out of ammo, and with health dwindling again, was forced to go up stairs for another rest, and to think some more.

This time, my illusion had followed me, and was hitting me while I ate and regenerated some health. I wielded the sling of evasion, in order to lessen the amount of successful connections, it would have on me. Every other hit, would send pain through my body though - I still find this curious and perplexing, but was happy it didn't seem to have the ability to mangle or eviscerate.

My next plan, was to wield the obsidian axe, and although I'd likely get mesmerized, hopefully enough demons would come to my aid, and give Mara other things to worry about, and I'd have maybe a chance to zap him with the wand, and any other large rocks I could pick up in the process. I had considered calling in some Brother trolls, from Trog - but decided against it, as he would make illusions from them too, and then it would be really crazy. I wanted to keep as many variables under my control, as I could...

So back down I went, my illusion faithfully following, and started the dancing game with all the Mara's, yet again. I had gotten two of them to be near me, while his third was just 4 squares away. This was just about the optimal time to wield the axe, when a mottled dragon came into view and set me on fire. That took care of just about every remaining scroll in inventory, except for one of teleportation.

Sigh... I guess the gods of Zot don't want me to blink or teleport this game.

Any ways, to top it all off, in my present feeling of melancholy, and all - Mara said the following: "I stand as far above you as a star above the oceans bottom."

A sour scowl formed on my face, as I read that over and over...

I said into the computer screen; "Well Mara, f--- you!"

I asked Trog for his hand, switched to claws, and invoked berserk.

That was the breaking point. All this massive preparations, elaborate battle plans, and trying to finesse this entire situation with Mara. What am I doing? Am I trying to be something I'm not - of course I am. I'm a mangling machine, and if that don't work, Trog will have to find another prized avatar...

Eight turns later, after destroying the second Mara while berseked, I got a message saying that Trog accepted my kill. Good, that was the real one. Now I turned on the mottled dragon, and dispatched it, before berserk wore off. The remaining Mara, which had blinked somewhere, was never found again, and my illusion eventually poofed.

I gathered Mara's robe and the demonblade, of which I carefully read its description:

"A terrible weapon, forged in the fires of hell."
"Demonspawn deal slightly more damage with it."

I don't know how the game qualifies "slightly" but I'm happy that this Mara demon is no more.

And thus concludes the whole Mara episode...



I finished exploring, and clearing the level, then pressed on downwards, into the big dungeon...


I'm noticing more and more gateways, to Hell, Pandemonium, and the Abyss. I've seen the Abyss once, hope the other two areas are friendlier - likely not... < laugh! >


Found a corpse that weighs more than Xtahua's did! Stone giants leave 270 aum corpses. Chunks of flesh yields, are just as bad though...


Nice. Found a dire elephant enclave. Lots of food... < smile >


Went up a level. I nearly have 200 health. I feel like a Juggernaut!


Oups. Stumbled onto another zot trap. Have three mutations as a result of glow explosions. This is no longer fun. I've lost 10% to health, have attributes degenerating, and lose my temper in battle. I have started throwing my spear of returning, more and more. As I've berserked twice without invoking it myself (incidental berserk situation #15 and #16), but looks like throwing doesn't trigger it...


A lot of loot is accumulating in various piles I have made. Making dedicated trips back to my depot, at the hive...


Lot's of draining attacks. Lost about 42% of experience on way to character level 22... < sad face >


Found a ring of sustenance (dungeon level 26, 75250 turns).


I'm going to try a new shield. Feel bad about the old one though, it has served me well all this time. I'll tote it around any ways, should I need to see invisible.


Wow. Found a gateway to the realm of Zot. The description as to where it leads to, is quite foreboding, I must say...


The big dungeon has now been explored, and cleared, all the way to level 27. Quite an accomplishment for me.


New monsters discovered; Ancient Warrior, Shadow Dragon, Draconian (various kinds), Hellfire knight.


New accomplishments: I have gone deeper than dungeon level 23. At character level 21, this is the highest character level I have attained, with any character to date!

I have a specific question, if someone pleases: Look in my character file above. You'll see under the "Portals" section, that there are several gates to the Abyss, on various levels. Why is the last one marked with an asterisk (*)?

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

well done, so far!
berserkitis is a bad mutation, as you have already found out. you can wear a clarity item to control it, but in the long run you might want to find a cure mutation potion (if you don't have any).
you have also lost 4 hp to rotting (the value in brackets is your max hp), you can cure that by drinking heal potions (or heal wounds) when at full health.

as you have a source of sInv you can explore the elven halls. otherwise the vaults are an option.

Thank you.

Berserkitis? That's an amusing way of describing it. I'm able to work around it, so far.
I have one potion of cure mutation, but am weary of stumbling onto other zot traps. I'll hold onto it, in case I get worse ones.
Yes, but 4 health points is like 2% of total health points. Again, I'll see if I get worse episodes of rot / life loss.

I'm keeping the elven halls as a Trog "*" farm. They all seem to be magic users there, and Trog gives me an "especially happy" message when I kill any.



Does no one have an answer, to my question about the asterisk, in the character file?

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

With the discovery of a gateway to the realm of Zot; I read the game instructions again. Particularly, section "D" where it explains what runes do, and I was very happy to read that not all dungeon branches are required to win the game. I was not looking forward to entering the abyss - let me tell you! < laugh! >

So now, I'm studying the dungeon level and annotations screen, planning my next session...

I'm going to attempt at finishing the shoals, if that works out (or not), then figure I'll attempt to figure out the problem on dungeon level 25. Next will be experimenting with the angel in that room of ultimate power. After that, and hopefully discovering any angel secrets - we'll tackle Mennas...



Settling The Shoals Situation:

So now I'm at the stairs to the last level of the shoals again. I'm quite leery about all them javelineers, impalers, etc., waiting below. But; I'm prepared. I drink of potion of agility, and follow that with one of invisibility. Then I descend...

Took some time, but I'll trade turns for the comfort of survival. I did a lot of drawing and pack separation of the mobs here. Wand of flame to create steam clouds, and lost some big rocks in deep water - but I now have more than I can carry.

Being higher level, and or more confident in handling this troll, made clearing the rest of the level easier. The wide open areas, in the shoals, makes it rough on 'close in combat' characters. Also, the requirement of flight, or levitation, to get to all the islands, adds to the restrictions and limits normal methods of defending oneself.

My axes skill has increased, because Trog gave me a gift, and it was an axe of distortion. So I finished with the clearing process, before unwielding it. These type of weapons can be tricky, as they sometimes teleport you across the level, and give your health a hit. I really don't like levitating over such vast distances of deep water, so preferred to finish an island area, before switching out of that weapon.

Trying out some of these javelins, from the shoals. Javelineers were doing pretty good damage with them, against me. Let's see if I can reciprocate, unto monsters, with them...

Got another rune. < smile >

I was teaching Saint Roka, how much I like his invoking the power of Beough upon me. But when I hit him, he became unstable and disappeared somewhere else. Took a while before I found him again, in order to finish the lesson...

Had one unintentional (not invoked by me) episode of losing my temper (Berserk Situation #17), but it was against a lone snapping turtle, so am learning how to adjust my way of playing to this mutation (somewhat)...

Shoals completed, I'm quite happy about that. Making a pit-stop at the depot in the hive, and off to the next planned adventures...



I'm on level 25 of the big dungeon. When I hit the "o" command, the game says I can't reach certain areas - thus only partly explored. This is weird, because I don't see what I could possibly have missed - I'm quite thorough, you know. So I read a scroll of magic mapping, and not one single new area shows up (?). No hidden rooms, passages, nothing. I can't figure why the game says I can't finish exploring. Oh well. I shrug it off, and head back up the big dungeon, to level 21...



The Big Let Down:

I drew the angel out of the room, and quite a ways into the corridor. This in case, it is another type of blinking monster, so that I would be able to find it quickly enough. It never blinked, nor did much else, except to attack me and occasionally heal itself. I gave it lots of opportunity, to do whatever it could - even let it heal back up to near full health, at one point, just by hitting the "." key. Finally, after believing I knew all its tricks, I killed it. I don't know what the hallo effect is, likely some sort of 'protection from evil' type of thing...

Exploring the room it was in, led to another door, and that opened to an altar of The Shining One. What - that's it?!

This is the "ultimate power" or whatever I got as an initial warning? Well, what a disappointment this turned out to be. I was anticipating some major fight or puzzle solving situation. No idea what makes this god, better than Trog...



Found an artifact ring of sustain abilities. I think if I wear it continually, it may counteract the ability draining mutation I have...


Now that I know what to expect from an angel; it's time to tackle Mennas, again...



Mennas Martyred (Or, Berserk Situation #18):

When I found him, the range was 7 squares. He had the question mark, next to his picture, so I had an extra round to do something - namely one that required speech. I asked Trog for his hand, while Mennas moved towards me and tried to spell me with something. Undoubtedly it was his confusion spell, but I had several potions of healing, in case he got through my hostile enchantment resistance. At sword and claw range, Mennas gave up and cast his silence spell. No matter, I felt pretty confident now, compared to the first time I encountered him...

We did many rounds, of blocking each others attacks, with one-another shields. Was a good even fight, but Mennas would drink a potion of heal wounds - or cast some healing type spell, to bring his health up. I counted every round of combat, and on the 16th one, I lost my temper making me berserk!

On round #26, Mennas was killed, with Trog acknowledging his approval. But I suppose that The Shinning One had noticed my contemptuous behavior earlier, because he hit me with "cleansing flames"! Thank you, oh Shining One. I'll remember that fondly, when I renew playing my Human Death Knight of Yredelemnul the Dark...


Now that the mennace of Mennas is no more, I can finish exploring the level. When done, I press deeper into the vaults branch...


Fell through a shaft from vaults level 3 to 6. Clearing at this depth and working my way back up. Found lots of loot...


Wow. Trog is giving me all types of darts now...


Treasure Trove portal - I have never been to one. It is asking for a +4 gold dragon armour, presumably as an entrance fee. Haha, I've never seen a gold dragon in my career! They must be rare, and then you have to hope they give a hide, after chopping it up...


The new artifact ring is working out well, concerning minimizing the impact of one of my red mutations. The losing of temper one, I'm managing with, somewhat also, by adjusting my play style, and using more ranged combat. The loss of health one, well, not much to do there. But I have gained another experience level and am near 200 health again...


All right. All planned missions have been successfully brought to a close, and did some added exploration and clearing as a bonus.


Back to the hive, to sort some loot...

Specific Question #2: I see on the main sight, that version 0.9.1 is a bug fix. Are there any potential bugs that may hurt Muffin's progress here? Should I download and install the newer version?

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

I don't know why the one portal has an asterix. regarding your second question: no need to install a newer version, it's the latest stable.

i would suggest to drink the cure mutation potion. being slowed and exhausted at the wrong time is deadly.
usually high level heroes wear amulets of resist mutation to avoid being mutated.

just by the way: you can switch your skills to manual mode and control exactly what you are training. for example traps&doors, if you are concerned about zot traps. you can also focus skills (which will receive a larger percentage of xp)

To be clear, 0.9.1 is latest stable, not 0.9.0 which you are playing. The list of major fixes is here:

http://crawl.develz.org/wordpress/0-9-1-bugfix-release

The main ones which may concern you at this point (since you've already generated the portal to Zot) are various crash fixes. Since those can be problematic, I'd advise that you upgrade (but backup your save file first just in case.) As long as you take that precaution, that should mitigate any downside risk.

Thanks; I had read all the instructions, concerning the skill screen. But since I'm not an expert, I figured that I would just leave everything on automatic. It has worked out well, I think. Seems like the skills that I use the most, are the ones increasing at a steady pace. Of course, Spellcasting has been turned off, because Trog disapproves so much anything to do with spellcasters.

Thank you. I don't know how to back up individual save files, but I saved the entire folder. I tried a few different characters, after upgrading, and all seems fine.

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

Only two levels left in the vaults; let's finish that up quickly - or so I thought...

Level seven was routine, then I descended the stairs to level eight - there was a surprise...



Undesirable Results... (Or, Berserk Situations #19 to #23):

Twenty-four vault guards, some yaktaurs, and I forget what else. Well; time to look at everything before figuring the next move...

After reading every monster description in my visual range, and figuring that there would soon be a huge congregation at the stairs (you see, all the stairs lead to the same area here); looked like an optimal time for one of these scrolls of fear.

Everything failed their saving throw, except for seven vault guards, who sure enough, headed for me. I waited for most of them to be two squares from me, and asked Trog for his hand. The next turn I invoked berserk, and killed the seven vault guards which were brave enough not to run in fear.

That was the easy part.

Although I felt like this would now be a cake walk, since the remaining mob had scattered in all directions and I could pick them off at leisure, things turned out way different...

Things I discovered in vault level 8:

- The stone giants were holding a convention.

- They had invited shadow dragons, as security.

- You can't depend on berserk to last as long as required.

- Tentacled monstrosities are hard to bring down.

- Titans are harder.

- Titan corpses are the incredible 320 aums!

- New record for chopping a corpse - 9 chunks (from a stone giant)!

- Oh no, you have stepped on a zot trap! A ball lightning appears!
What is a ball lightning?
Ka-Boom!

- A feind merits immediate berserk when next to you - don't wait to see what type of spells it has - kill first, ask questions later.

- Saw a gold dragon, first time. But when I killed it, no corpse. So the treasure trove still alludes me...

- I hate shadow dragons. I was drained so often. I'm certain I could have been near level 26, if not for these guys... < sad face >

- When a monster steps on a zot trap - which you can see - the power of zot is invoked against your character - very unfair. That action, resulted in giving me six mutations... < sad face >

- Silver bolts sear my skin (?!). I'm a troll. Traditionally trolls are hurt by fire and/or acid, as they cannot regenerate such damage. If I were a vampire, I might understand, but a troll being vulnerable to silver... ?

- There is a (silver) rune in this branch.

- When you have retrieved three runes, the game tells you can now enter the realm of Zot. That's a good reminder, to have included.



The last level of the vaults branch, was certainly quite a step up in difficulty, from the previous levels.

I'm surprised I only lost one of the *'s of Trog's favor. I asked for his hand at least eight times.

That was the toughest area I have encountered yet. It took me four nights, to clear level eight, alone. < sad face >

I should be happy to have achieved this, but don't feel as good about the character now. I have quite a number of (red) mutations. Considering that anything else, which remains to be done, will certainly be more difficult, I dunno...


Now to consider my next move...

For the love of Trog, put on that ring of protection from cold. Roaming with negative resists this deep is begging the engine to screw your progress.

I have to say, I love your write up. I'm new to DCSS(but not to rougelikes) and not very good, but your write up serves as good inspiration to try again after each YASD. Keep up the good work and get that orb! I'd be crushed to see Muffin get slain now ;)

hehe - Yes! The game always seems to find a way to ruin one's day, it seems.
;)

What I've been doing, was to select appropriate rings, whenever I encountered the corresponding threat(s). Though I found that generally having an X in cold res, was preferable to having one in fire res.

Thanks buddy. I'm relatively new also. I'll certainly endeavor to try my best, with Muffin. If he gets killed, it'll certainly be due to something I am not aware of, or it's associated dangers.


I may have some bad news though...

My computer stopped functioning (this is being posted via my old computer from 1998), and is currently in the shop. This explains why I have not posted in a while now. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know what has gone wrong, but usually the repair people wipe the drive clean when they repair them. Therefore, Muffin may be lost. I'll give more news, when I receive it.

Any shop worth its salt should be able to provide a backup of your documents baring a severe hard drive failure. If they say they can't or won't backup your documents and it isn't a hard drive failure then I'd suggest finding a new shop.

Your first explains the second, actually, hehe. When you begin to get some mutations, you take more damage from silver ammo. I think the in-game tooltip on silver ammo says it. ;)

Re: CIP - Muffin, a Troll Monk of Trog

I'm rooting for Muffin! I hope your computer issues get worked out.

This is a great writeup. I also admire how far you have come with no spoilers. When I started playing, I played the first few weeks with no spoilers at all, so I could discover the game on its own terms. But once I had some background, I enjoyed reading the forums and the strategy tips here. I'm impressed that you have done it all on your own.

Good luck!

It's a bot, spamming a dead topic. Probably minmay mis-clicked while reporting it. There's nothing to see here.

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
