GH: Title fixed. The number after kill% refers to floor reached, not marine level.

That megasphere is within reach, I said.  I can make it, I said.  I'm as pimped out as can be, I said.

-- History ---------------------------------------------------

  He started his journey on the surface of Phobos.
  On level 3 he entered Hell's Arena.
  He left the Arena as a champion!
  On level 7 he assembled a gatling gun!
  On level 10 he assembled a tactical boots!
  On level 10 he assembled a micro launcher!  (I know most people think this is garbage, but with a level in reloader this helped me to avoid getting hit on the Wall.)
  On level 10 he witnessed the Wall.
  He massacred the evil behind the Wall!
  On level 11 he ventured into the Halls of Carnage.
  On level 13 he assembled a nanofiber armor!   (I made this out of a damaged red power armor thinking I had nothing to lose.  Turns out to be a 1 defense nanofiber red armor with -45% move speed.  Pass)
  On level 15 he encountered the Phobos Hellgate.
  On level 23 he finally was killed by a arachnotron.

 You reload the plasma rifle with power cell.
 There is a bulk mod pack lying here.
 You push the barrel.
 There are stairs leading downward here.
 You close the door. There are stairs leading downward here.
 There is power cell (x20) lying here.
 The mancubus fires! Boom! The barrel explodes! You are hit! Boom!

 You enter Phobos Hell, level 8. Twisted passages carry the smell of
 death... You sense a passage to a place beyond...
 The arachnotron fires! Boom! Boom! You are hit! You are hit! You are hit!
 You die!... Press <Enter>...

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

 Before him 1334 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 1167 of those were killed.
 6 of those were killed by something unknown.
 77 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 49 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 35 souls claim to have killed him...
 5 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 26 killed the bastard and survived.
 4 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

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

I fight packs of Mancubi and Archviles on the previous level and this is what kills me?  Really?  I mean REALLY?

After surviving through a Mancubi barrage at close range I was getting pretty cocky, unfortunately that kills you in AoHumanity.

I guess it could be worse.  I am proud though to show off the Every Soldier's Medal, it's not quite as easy as it looks to get that.

If people are interested, I may post my strategy and thoughts on AoHu.

I'd be interested in a AoHu strategy, however brief. I haven't really sunk into it so I haven't come up with anything personally conclusive yet as to the best way of going about it. Intx2 SEEMS like the best idea, at least on HNTR. That would make me want to play toward Cateye and rapid-fire, possibly with DM mixed in for the Cybie battle.

Couple technical things (forum-wise):
- The title tag uses floor level, not character level. Already fixed it, but just an FYI (that goes to anyone else who might have done it recently).
- Writing too much inside of the mortem makes it difficult to read what was added. Mortem tag don't wrap words, so instead you get the scroll bar, which is a pain to use. If you DO want to add in-mortem text, preview the result and wrap it by hand so everyone can read it easily.

Looks like you aren't far off from a AoHu victory. Here's to an Everyman Gold!

Ah, thanks for that.  It's been awhile since I've posted a mortem, so was shaky on those.

While I could see this being a veritable trial of insanity on Nightmare, it was certainly doable on HNTR.  Power modding your initial red armor gives you early game survivability, tech modding a combat shotty gives you a weapon that will you'll want throughout, and the bulk mod can be placed on your chaingun (which can be followed up with a power mod for a high power chaingun or another bulk mod for a gattling gun if you go the eagle eye strategy, which I did.) 

I'll mention more in the mortem post I'm going to make right now, with the victory I just had =)

The nanofiber red could have been repaired and it would improve.

You can repair armor that has no durability?

It technically is "indestructible" but since it was created from a worn piece of armor, it's not quite up to standards. An armor shard would have improved it and made it more useful.

Ah, wasn't aware.  Guess I didn't need to ditch it.
