Ascension Traditions?

Does anyone else have anything special they do during ascension/as a victory dance of sorts at the end of the game?

As soon as I grab the orb, I play this track on repeat while I book it to D:1. I love the simultaneous tension and excitement. Then, once I escape, I play this one to celebrate while I review the morgue.

Both songs are from Wayward Souls, a really good permadeath rpg by Rocketcat games.
3 Runes: GrEE^Ru.
5 Runes: DsGl^Oka, MiGl^Hep.
15 Runes: HOFi^TSO->Zin.
For now.

My ideas:
Iacchus the Ascneded, god of danger and risk

Re: Ascension Traditions?

I used to enjoy buffing up with all of my spells (Anyone else remember phase shift?), switching equipment, and quaffing might/agility/etc to try to get the highest AC/EV and have pretty morgues like these:

http://dobrazupa.org/morgue/tasonir/mor ... 155739.txt (46 ac, 70 ev) 70 EV is easy to get on a felid, right? well...
http://dobrazupa.org/morgue/tasonir/mor ... 034745.txt (44 ac, 66 ev) Here's 66 EV on a ogre.
http://dobrazupa.org/morgue/tasonir/mor ... 163223.txt (44 ac, 63 ev) But that's just one morgue! Fine, 63 EV on a troll.
http://dobrazupa.org/morgue/tasonir/mor ... 185823.txt (53 ac, 48 ev) Octopode with less EV but slightly more armor from rings.

I don't bother as much anymore, which saves me about 5-10 turns off my turncount, I suppose. Phase shift and stoneskin were removed anyways. I might still cast statue form just so I can have a record of roughly what my actual combat stats are, but that's about it.

Declare the last enemy you see between you and the exit as the final boss (usually a ufetubus)

Very disappointed that this wasn't Yakety Sax.
