 Before him 201 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 158 of those were killed.
 3 of those were killed by something unknown.
 10 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 14 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 16 souls claim to have killed him...
 4 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 10 killed the bastard and survived.
 2 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

At first it started off okay. I went via the shotgun route, a bad move in retrospect, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Actually, it was going fine, but I wasn't paying attention to my shell stock, and so I ran out. I can't really remember where, but it was probably at like the 30's.

However, the exotics system saved my life. Minigun is a lot better as an exotic than as a unique, I used that and a rocket launcher to scrape on through until I had a ton of shells. (The Onyx armor being moddable also saved me from having to carry around red's for Viles and the such. The only thing better would have been Phaseshift Armor and Whizkid. Slap a power and an onyx mod on there, and grab some PS boots, and BOOM! Immune to acid and lava, and decent protection.)I dropped those and continued on through after I realized I had gotten Shotgun ammo.

After dlvl 25 or so, I saw my first ??? (name censored due to being a spoiler) and it surprised the hell out of me. Then I ran into two more ???'s and it was actually a nice surprise. (Kornel, well done on the ???'s)

The reason I kept the GCB: it was a souvenir from a level I nuked that it survived, to commemerate the Uniques being destruction proof.

The emergent narrative came at dlvl 88, where I found the Jackhammer. It was like after suffering for so long without a shotgun, and even when I had ammo, still having to run away a lot, I found the ultimate tool of death. Jackhammer with MAD, and SoB 3? It was a war crime, how much blood I was spilling. Shooting pure death, three shots at a time. (I'll put my emergent narrative up as my next post. I like it at any rate)

So I tear through the last 22 levels. I drop a nuke in dlvl 100 and head on down the stairs into Legend. (That's what I think the stairs on level 100 of Ao100 are, the gateway to the land named Legend. That's why it says your killed by something, becuase your soul is lifted out of your body and is then taken to eternally live with the other Legendary souls. At least, that's the story I came up with in my head. I also think that other roguelike ascendants end up in Legend. That's a whole other story.)

I was close to death so many times. I guess Ao100 is actually an epic challenge without the DS. /sarcasm

EDIT: I guess this makes me the first person to foray into the 0.9.9.1 Ao100 and decide to post the mortem. I feel so honored.

Here it is, the thing I thought was going on at level 88. In two parts. Part 1:

The Centurion stumbled on the last step to the 88th level of this damned place. He managed to keep his balance and step safely onto the mix of technology and brimstone. He sat and rested for a moment, thinking about how his assignment to investigate the Special Research Complex on the other side of Phobos from the Main Base was supposed to be a routine checkup, and how it was only supposed to take maybe a couple of days. The Centurion laughed out loud at this. He wasn't sure how long he had been trudging through Hell, but after the former humans and imps destroyed his landing craft and slaughtered his squadmates, The Centurion knew he probably wasn't going to be back in time for dinner.

 He wondered about the fate of the soldiers sent to investigate the Main base. They were probably going through the same hell he had, if any of them survived. He was so tired. The Centurion had seen the many horrors of hell, and for a long time, had no shotgun shells, even though he was a shotgun specialist, to effectively deal with the problem. Thankfully, he had found a Rocket Launcher, and, more importantly, a new Minigun to tide him over until he had found more shells, but even when he did, the demons were relentless, and brought him close to death many times. He was glad he was in a special research department, becuase he was definitely taking some of these toys back with him, if he ever got back. He got up, and prepared his Double barreled Shotgun for battle.


Part 1 end.

Part two. Maybe I should have done DoomRL: The Novel, for NaNoWriMo. Ah well, there's always next year.

Before he went any farther,The Centurion had a feeling that there was something valuable on this level. He couldn't quite place it, but he knew it to be true, So he opened a door from the side and looked through it. He was greeted by Baron fire. Nothing new so he fired off a couple of shells that killed some formers hanging around and really put some hurt onto the Barons.

Then a Rev rocket came flying at him knocking him back a bit. He kept shooting, but some suddenly came back to life. The Centurion knew this meant one thing:Viles. He quickly closed the door and ran as fast as he could, only to encounter a Mancubus in close quarters. He quickly ran towards it and managed to get close enough so it won't try to shoot at him, then he blew it away.

After some close calls and hearing the demons nearby, The Centurion turned into a room in despiration, what he found, was salvation. There was, on the floor, an immaculate, (basically newly made) and beautiful, Pancor Jackhammer. He quickly looked around for enemies to ruin him. Then he ran to it like no person has ever ran before. He picked the gun up, and it after a check of the mechanisims, The Centurion cried, he cried tears of joy. He held in his hands, the gun he would use to avenge his commrades, and all the pain and suffering they had dealt to him. He was about to commit some war crimes.

The Centurion went to the door, as it slowly opened to revealed Viles and and Mancubi, plus a Rev. Four salvos later, they were ALL DEAD. ALL OF THEM. The Centurion then found a Berzerk Pack, and smiled a devilish grin. He then started to laugh as he started to install it as some Hell Knights closed in. He knew that with that Pancor, The Centurion had become an Agent of Death. He was going to get out of this goddamned dungeon...one way or another, and the more demons that he took down before that, the better.


Part two end.

I know that there's no story to Ao100, but having one emerge from an experience in game made it better all around.

Congrats Kornel, you've made a game where someone can make a story out of the storyless bonus mode.

You made me do something that some people try very hard to do in games all the time, with a Doom Roguelike.

Well, all three ??? are Ao100 only, I'm merely censoring the names so then it's a surprise for anyone who doesn't have the beta.

That's true. I wasn't going to go out of my way to kill everything without the dragonslayer. Are you crazy? 100 levels? No. I need that damn sword if I'm going to YAAM Ao100.

Now I'm thinking about writing a novel or something about an entire Ao100 run, of course, I'm one of those people who starts to write novels, but never finishes them.

EDIT: I want to hear what everyone thinks of my story, please. I accept all comments, but perfer constructive crticism. If I have to, I'll repost the story in off-topic for comments.
