-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 123 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 115 of those were killed.
 And 7 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 1 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------
After countless other marines named SoG were killed off--Smart SoG,
Dumb SoG, Crazy SoG, and too many others to mention--Gay Son of
a Gun finally succeeded where his heterosexual brethren had failed.
Gay SoG sips a strawberry martini as he sits at a bar outside the
marine base, surrounded by fellow marines. They're all begging to
hear, one more time, about how he toppled the fearsome
Cyberdemon using only a pair of pistols. "Oh, pleeease!" laughs Gay
SoG. "So now, all of a sudden the Marines' policy has changed to 'Do
ask, DO tell'? Ah ha ha ha ha!"

THE END
--------------------------------------------------------------

Hooray! Finally, a victory outside of ITYTD. I think I managed to get my first victory deceptively easily--even if you have a lot of bad habits, you can still squeak by with just a little bit of luck. But on HNTR or higher, if you don't play smart the RNG will kill you, every time.

I think one major turning point was around L18. Up until that point, one of my big bad habits was trying to get 100% kills all the time. But then I opened the door to a small room and saw a Baron of Hell, accompanied by TWO Arch-Viles. And me with just two pistols. At that point, I knew running away like a little girl was my only option. I used a phase device, grabbed some armor shards and a supercharge I'd spotted around the periphery, and high-tailed it for the stairs. After that, I'd already broken 100% in this game so there was less temptation to stick around and hunt for that one last mancubus prowling around a level.

The phaseshift boots were a lucky find. The speed boost is a HUGE help. Gothic boots... not so much. They work well for when you have to run over a small patch of lava.

I decided to clear the lava pits, figuring it would be easy with the gothic boots. I was wrong. Total pain in the ass. I think I wasted 2 medpacks on that level. Even the experience didn't help me, since I didn't gain any levels between the lava pits and the Cyberdemon.

The final fight was harder than my melee battle, but still not too difficult. Gun Kata makes the Cyberdemon pretty easy. But most of us probably knew that already.

About the name: I was just going through a run of Marksman attempts where I named all my characters "_____ SoG." On a lark, I decided to try calling this character "Gay SoG"... and he happened to be the one that made it to the end! I guess I must have had rainbow power protecting me or something.

Next step is to rack up more silver medals, and build up my skills. From here on I'll be playing mostly on HMP level, except maybe some of the harder challenges like Angel of Berserk or Purity.
