YA"V"P! Speed Demon III after 110 attempts

Makhleb wants to see bloodshed as quickly as possible and will give players just 27 minutes to prove themselves as SPEED DEMONS.
I: Reach D:14 in 27 minutes.
II: Reach D:27 in 27 minutes.
III: Reach D:27 in 27 minutes without being one of the speedy races (centaur, spriggan, or felid).

I love diving, so when I saw this banner, I grinned. It seemed like exactly my type of thing. The 'no speedy races' complicated things, though, since I'm used to running around on my speedy little spar legs.

So...I took the next best thing and became a vpar. Why? A few reasons:
1) Bat form. Despite its incredibly severe limitations (no scrolls, no potions, no weapons, no opening doors, no ac, no anything), it's -fast.- It's the next-best thing to being a spriggan.
2) +4 stealth
3) Wand of enslavement. It works (eventually) on everything from centaurs to ugly things; it remains effective throughout almost the entire dive.
4) Wand of flame lets me score a quick kill on ogre/menkaure/ice beast to get some nice xp.

My strategy, nonexistent at first, was refined over time to this:
- Train only stealth.
- Tab through D:1 and part of D:2 until I am at xl3; sometimes I would dive to an ogre instead.
- Pick up every food item I found, in addition to regular items
- Search D:4-D:7 as much as convenient for nemelex altar
- Sac items for wonders for experience
- Bat form dive

The nemelex stuff wasn't essential, but it was incredibly helpful. A single plain experience card always took stealth up to at least 16; in one memorable game, I got my xl up to 13, stealth up to 27 (!!!), and dodging up to 15 all by D:7, with a short jaunt through the abyss (that dude died on D:26). This made diving around everything much, much easier.

Anyway, after the early-dungeon stuff, I just ran like a madman; in my winning game, a combination of lots of luck and some skill got me past everything (including a d:26 lich), down to d:27, and into Pan just for the heck of it. I only got one experience card, but that turned out to be enough.

Most hated things: Bats, orc priests, giant spores, centaurs, anything faster than me
Most useful things: Ogres, Ice Beasts, Menkaure, decks of wonders

Overall, it was incredibly frustrating, but very fun. I am the third person (after 78291 and jeanjacques) to get the banner.

Here's my dump:

Re: YA"V"P! Speed Demon III after 110 attempts

Very impressive. Did you get the "Lord of Darkness" banner too? It seems like that would be an easy pickup on a dive like that.

Edit: nevermind - I see you did it as demonblade

Heh...yeah. Some of my failures were agonizing; I improved massively by the end, though (I had several moments that would've killed me in the past) so all of those dead vpars were worth it. I should really play some vampires to win now; I started to quite like their unique features (especially batform) by the end.

Re: YA"V"P! Speed Demon III after 110 attempts

I think the system of banners in tournaments is really interesting and can inspire players to do things they wouldn't normally try.

However, it would be even better (IMO) if more of these things gave you actual tournament points to encourage more players to attempt them.

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
