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

 Before him 12 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 10 of those were killed.
 And 1 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.

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

Now this is a story all about
How my life got flipped upside
And how I became the prince
of a town called HOLY SHIT THE GAME DROPPED SEVEN NUKES

Yes, it is true.

However, there are other interesting games about this mortem. It's my first (partial) win on HMP. At the beginning, the game was hilariously generous with items, bathing me in medkits and weapons. When you're choosing between mod packs and health, you know you've got it made.

However, around the time I got into Phobos Hell, the gravy train stopped. I quickly ran out of health kits and actually had to clear a room with 8 mancubi and 2 archviles with the 80% or so health I had. I walked out of that with 20%, only to face a room full of barons and hell knights. Got through that with copious BFG spamming -- as you can see, I modded the hell out of my BFG. (On top of everything, the level exit was in the middle of a lava pit. Luckily it dropped a homing phase device)

As usual, Ammochain is the best master trait. This is mostly because the plasma rifle devastates anything you point it at, especially when you modded it as much as I did. When you get a technical on it, you can usually fire 2-3 volleys before anything else has time to react. Beautiful.

I reached the Cyberdemon with two small health kits, no armor, and two nukes. Oorah. I did not want to lose at that point, so I decided to go for the partial win. Was there any more appropriate end to this run? After all, when all you have is seven nukes, everything seems to look an awful lot like Nagasaki...

Very nice win!  It is possible to kill Cybie with weapons other than the plasma rifle/BFG, but they usually involve either being overpowered or doing the dance of death correctly.

And nukes are always welcomed!  It seems that you have seen lots of Invulnerability globes too right?  If so, this has been a really lucky run!  (=

Thanks!

I forgot to mention it, but the game was really liberal with invulns, even later on.

I just didn't feel like I could kill the Cybie in my current condition, although in hindsight I probably could have pulled it out. Oh well -- for the next run!
