CRAWL LEGENDS: [UPDATE] Explanation on #4 & Current Projects

It's time for a new project! Crawl has some incredible stories through its history, and it is only appropriate to highlight some of the best and brightest of them all. I've started with the story of 78291's xl12 victory, the lowest-xl* character to ever win: http://imgur.com/a/rJhHk

There are many more stories to tell from all phases of Crawl's history. I'm always open to suggestions of what you'd like me to highlight next! In the meantime, enjoy the story, and happy Crawling.

UPDATE:
#2: Rob the Almost Pacifist: http://imgur.com/a/dow49
#3: Sapher, the Fastest Minotaur on Earth: http://imgur.com/a/Jsa8b

UPDATE:
I am crawling through real life as a backpacker/hitchhiker/adventurer for the next few months and blogging about it all. If you live around Colorado, Utah, or the surrounding states, feel free to message me and I'll let you know when I crawl through your town. I haven't posted about it here for the obvious reason that it's Not Crawl, but it's been my big project lately and that's why I've been so slack on getting #4 done. Once I get into the swing of things out here, I'd like to continue the Legends series if possible. At the very least, I'll finish the qw post.

If people are interested, I think it would be really fun to take suggestions from this forum for silly/Crawl-related/adventury things to do while I'm out here, then report back on the results. This is the forum I'm most familiar with and think I'd have the most fun doing something like that with, but since it's only tenuously connected to Crawl (okay: not connected at all unless we make it that way) I've been hesitant to do it here. It would probably have a tone and writing style much like the Crawl legends series, with the difference of being real-life adventure instead of Crawl adventure. Please let me know if I should post something about that (in a new thread, obviously) as a supplement to this series.

Until next time (not another 2 months from now, I promise)!

UPDATE, 2 years later:

Re: Stories from Crawl History: 78291 the Infuser

Thanks! Awesome thread and game.
I'm always curious about extreme games like this one, but I can't bear DCSS' console graphics and use tyreecs to study them... yeah stupid lazy titles player here.

Anyway, what is about the lowest xl victory ever? I thought this one was the lowest one, but you mention another one in the opening, saying you'll cover it later; however you don't talk about it any more.

My request for another story is about the almost pacific victory one, with only 1 bat killed for a typo, albeit it I suspect it could be kinda boring.

I had a short look at your story and remember the old ASCII times before tiles were available. I played some crawl in these days but as victory dancing was very stupid I preferred to play angband. After victory dancing was gone crawl became interesting!

In the old ASCII times swamp was a very dangerous place because one wrong step into deep water could kill your char immediately! So you had to walk around - I didn't know that the initially cursed ring of teleportation could be useful in the game. As autoexplore didn't exist - or at least I didn't know it - *very* careful movement was necessary to look if you step on a light blue '{' (shallow water) or into a dark blue '{' (deep water and immediate death).

Heh. That one was just cheese back when draining was permanent and so was Tomb of Doroklohe. He technically won at xl1. It was by another incredible player who will certainly get stories of his own sometime (perhaps the 4.1 win; he did that).

Re: Stories from Crawl History: 78291 the Infuser

I'm going to copy over some side information that I posted alongside this on /r/roguelikes. It's all more or less common knowledge stuff over here, but someone might find it useful:

One of the most eye-opening things in watching this run was a reminder of how much has changed--and, honestly, improved--about Crawl. This run was incredible, but admittedly, a lot of it was diving through very similar levels of the dungeon and vaults, full of monsters like brown frogs, brown snakes, and "interchangeable bag of hp #3." Since then, a lot has been done to further differentiate branches, add more significant threats before the end vaults of levels, and tighten things up in general. The introduction of the Depths, new monsters in Vaults, Swamp, and Snake, and a more open Vaults:5 layout would all increase the difficulty.

There are a few things other than dungeon layout that would change a run like this in modern Crawl. These include:

* the removal of divinations: no more Detect Creatures, which he used extensively
* the Hexes/Charms split from Enchantments, meaning he could not have both haste and invisibility that early
* changes to the orbrun and orb effects, meaning that a controlled blink he performed after picking the orb up would no longer be possible and increasing his likelihood of getting into tough spots on the way up
* the removal of evocable teleport, making the random teleportation strategies that formed the core of his run more difficult

As a result, other speedrun strategies have since taken over. The most effective is currently to play an optimized berserker. Sapher recently used this strategy for a 9,786-turn win, less than a third the length of this game. I may cover that one some time later.

That's not to say similar things to this run are impossible today, though they require a good deal of luck. I got a rune at xl12 recently using the same "run away from everything as a spriggan" techniques, and it would probably be theoretically possible to win sometime around xl14 or xl15 with a lot of care and luck.

Finally: here is the game's log: http://crawl.akrasiac.org/rawdata/78291/morgue-78291-20090814-042736.txt

Rob the Almost Pacifist
http://imgur.com/a/dow49

Hey, everyone! Stories from Crawl History is back, this time highlighting the story of Rob the Almost Pacifist (thanks for the suggestion, nago!). This game was a very different experience to the previous one I profiled, but satisfying and engaging in its own right. Doing a full-pacifist game is not easy. It is not fun. It is not anywhere close to fast and simple. There's a reason that Rob is the only one to even come close here, and watching how he pacified his way through the entire dungeon of Zot was impressive.

It also highlights the difficulty in presenting summaries like this: There is simply so much content in a game of Crawl that doing a write-up on it will always miss a lot. This game, I felt that a lot more than the previous one. There were a lot of tactical moments that would have been fun to highlight, especially throughout the early dungeon, but a lot ended up on the cutting room floor for the sake of length. I'm really happy about how this write-up turned out, though!

Let me know what you think of this write-up, and as always, you're welcome to make suggestions for what to profile next.

Happy Crawling!

Re: [UPDATE] Crawl Legends #2: Rob the Almost Pacifist

For a future write-up, I'd love to see a comparison between sapher's NaWz and sapher's later DDWr. I bet there's some interesting contrasts to be drawn between these two speedruns; you might also make a detour to point out that PurpleRed probably would've beat the NaWz run if it hadn't been for one of the most unlucky banishments I've ever seen in a Crawl game.

Rob's pacifist run is totally crazy, and it's a bit of a shame that it was so dependent on such a broken and unfun mechanic. I still think it would be cool if there was a way to win Crawl without killing things, but this run makes it awfully clear that it would take quite a bit of work to make it much fun.

Half xp for seeing a monster, the other half for killing it. Like in Sil.

You're welcome.

Re: [UPDATE] Crawl Legends #2: Rob the Almost Pacifist

I don't think half xp for seeing + half for killing really accomplishes much in crawl, since persistent levels make leaving enemies behind not very desirable anyway.

That sounds fascinating! I'll take a look into those.

And yes, if I could make one change to the direction of Crawl's development, it would be to expand options for reduced-killing playstyles. Speedruns and challenge runs are awesome, but most speedruns these days are of the "kill all dudes really really fast" style. I miss the feel of older challenge runs, silly mechanics and all.

Sil has much fewer types of enemies, so the XP goes down quite fast. Crawl has too many types of enemies.

Thanks for following my suggestion! Another insane game. Certainly he played very well, but I can't imagine how he bear to do all that things for so loong without going mad.
Also you deserve some praises: excellent writing and storytelling, thanks for your work.

From the screenshots, the murdering of the bat isn't 100% clear to me: did Rob walked into it without realizing it was there? The '!a' inscription didn't exist at that time, did it?

+1 for telling about some Sapher's or Purplered speedruns

Re: [UPDATE] Crawl Legends #2: Rob the Almost Pacifist

That is correct. He was running from the mosquitoes and the bat appeared on the edge of his field of vision, then right in front of his path, in the space of 2 turns and about a quarter-second. I had to replay it several times to see exactly what happened. It was all very sudden and an unfortunate coincidence in the middle of the game.

You could pacify most insects back then, though, that's how he clears Hive. Were giant mosquitoes special-cased? I don't remember, though when I played they were called "vampire mosquitoes" (and were using blowfly stats?) already, I think.

That's the one bit I should have been watching more closely. My mind went straight to "vampire mosquito" with them. That said, I recall lots of chases and no pacification with them, so my guess is that they were very similar to today.

Re: CRAWL LEGENDS #3: Sapher, the Fastest Minotaur on Earth

Well, #3 is here! This was a very different experience to the past two games. Lots of fun stuff here! prozacelf, I hope the balance struck between animations and stills works in the final album. I used them only for critical moments where seeing a bit of animation struck me as interesting. If animation turns out to be the wrong direction for those moments, I'll go back to just doing stills, but I thought it would be fun to give it a shot.

I might post a bit later with some extra information about this run and bonus things, but for now, I hope everyone enjoys the story of Sapher, fastest minotaur on Earth! http://imgur.com/a/Jsa8b

I'm not a big fan of the animations either. Mostly because they show up as already animating, so I have to watch the loop a few times before I can even figure out when the action starts.
Apart from that minor annoyance I liked the story though, the comparison with a regular character was a nice touch.

Re: CRAWL LEGENDS #3: Sapher, the Fastest Minotaur on Earth

Thanks for the feedback and the ideas, everyone! Glad to hear you're enjoying the stories. I really like the idea of commemorating a game mysteriously lost from the score list, so I'll keep Charly's in mind for the future. I'll look into what to do with the animations in the future, since there's been pretty mixed feedback in that area. Other than that, I'm considering splitting some future games into series, which would give me the option of covering 15-runers without either being very terse or sticking 250 pictures on a single page. Before that happens, though, I have a few games to cover, so look for these in the near future:
1. qw and a brief history of bots
2. meneril's game of Crawl 4.1
(probably) 3. Charly's DDFi.

Cheers!

Re: CRAWL LEGENDS #3: Sapher, the Fastest Minotaur on Earth

dunno how much work it is, but the animations would be more informative if they could be started/paused/rewound. I would reach them when they were halfway through playing, and tiles-player that I am, also had a hard time following what was happening in real time.

This is incredible! I'm a huge fan of all the work you are doing here, and am eagerly anticipating the next installment. Thanks for putting all of it together.

On animations: They inject life into the stories: Sapher's dive into the Vaults popped out because of the animation, I felt the tension. Furthermore, they add valuable context to the games. With only images, the Crawl shown is alien from the Crawl I play (but still entertaining). When a sequence is animated, it comes home that their Crawl is my Crawl (if that makes any sense). Then, my jaw drops.

Re: CRAWL LEGENDS #3: Sapher, the Fastest Minotaur on Earth

So I guess we're not seeing that qw legend?

Re: CRAWL LEGENDS: [UPDATE] Explanation on #4 & Current Proj

Okay, update time! Sort of.

See, I had a hard time making the qw one interesting as I was going through it, distracting me for that crucial long-enough-to-get-out-of-the-habit moment. I have it about 66% done, though--all the watching and photo gathering and everything is set, I just need to do the actual writing. So I would actually like to do it sometime soon. I've just been dragging my feet.

Those of you who enjoy my writing in general might be interested to know one reason I've dragged my feet, though:
I've actually been preparing for a big project that started the other day. I'm backpacking and hitchhiking around the United States, writing about my experiences as I go. Right now, I'm sitting in a café about 150 miles away from my home, recharging my laptop and such.

I haven't posted about it here for the obvious reason of it's not Crawl. Since I think this community is awesome, though, I'd love to turn to you guys for suggestions and quests to pursue at points throughout it, though (things like: Make a Crawl screenshot out of rocks. Or anything that occurs to you. Sky's the limit). Would people be interested in that sort of thing?

Either way, I'll push the qw legends update back up my Priorities list a ways and get it done sometime in the next few towns. Sorry to go radio silent on it for so long.
