 16 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 13 of those were killed.
 And 2 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 1 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.

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

Wow.

I can't believe this. I mean, my first ever win would also be my first ever game on 0.9.9.4? Fantastic.
Anyhow - not sure if this is an actual victory, 'cause I died before the bomb exploded - but still the most enjoyable DoomRL game I've ever had.

I'm surprised I didn't die before the Armory, considering I didn't get a combat shotgun until that level - clearing the CC with just a shotgun and a rocket launcher was a first for me :D
Anyway, haul from armory was crap - no unique or exotic items, lab cache was nanofiber armour schematics, a technical pack and a bulk pack. The technical set me on my way for the tactical shotgun - amusingly, before I'd even got the weapon I needed.
Level 13: Shielded Armour GET!
The SA is an unbelievably useful armour - I probably used it for two times longer than the red armours I'd found, modded and then subsequently destroyed - even if the protection is only 2. Halls of Carnage was a surprise for me, I'd not played DoomRL much since I'd missed it on my last game of 0.9.9.3 - and the lava made my heart skip a beat.
It was surprisingly slow, and I was able to carve my way straight to the BFG before bulk modding it.
On level 14, I found an invulnerability globe steps away from the stairs, so I took it and proceeded - spending about half of my time invincible dropping the BFG, picking up a mod, dropping the shotgun, modding the BFG, dropping it, picking the shotgun back up, sorting my armour, modding my armour before deciding to wear the unmoddable Shielded Armor.
I destroyed the first wave with my shotgun, and lost invunerability as the wall exploded.
With Army of the Dead, which I got during that large battle, the Bruisers and their subsequent smaller siblings (yay, alliteration!) were absolute pushovers.
Level 16 amused me. I thought when I saw it "really Kornel, what can icy walls possibly do to change the game?". Spoke too soon. Indiscriminate shots with the combat shotgun opened up spots for Pain Elementals to throw Lost Souls at me - not that it really mattered - my double-shotgun was more than enough to kill six in a single shot (somehow).
Level 18 was my first experience with the choking air-type floor. I was expecting to die searching for the stairs, only to find that they were one square out of my vision.
Can't remember much about levels 19 and 20, other than that I found my nuke there - which would eventually be what lead me to killing Cybie.
The Lava Armor, I thought, would be crap. I only really used it on level 24 - when I stumbled into a cave of Arachnotrons and nearly died - the 50% plasma resistance was a godsend.
It was on 0% health when I saw two armor shards by an Arachnotron, and yelled quite audibly "EAT BFG YOU SPIDER SCUM" and destroying the armor shards. Arse.
At the end of level 24, as I was running away like a coward, I found it rather amusing that there was a missile launcher and a nuclear BFG waiting for me. Oh RNG, you really spoiled me.

Level 25, with the Tower of Babel music (a perfect choice), probably my favourite Doom track after Military Base, surprised me. I thought that the Cyberdemon would be quite easy with my lots of armor, shotgun domination and Army of the Dead. I was wrong. I was consistently hit by rockets, the Cyberdemon only letting up to chamber another. It was only, at 6% health, when I remembered my nuke.


I think my only regrets on this run, were not going to the Mortuary for a quick armor/BFG/Assault Shotgun run and then getting out of there - I had my homing phase all ready, when on either side of the door guarding the Mortuary stairs was a Baron, a Vile, a Revenant and a Mancubus. I had to use my homing phase to escape to the next level.
I also didn't get to use my nuclear plasma rifle, my nuclear BFG or my missile launcher. I also found a Ballistic Shield, but the 0 protection sort of put me off.

Final thoughts:
This run has cemented DoomRL as my favourite roguelike ever ever ever - and one of the best timewasters I've ever tried.
Great game Kornel, I take my hat off to you.

Gratz on the run. As for the Combat Shotgun thing - you might need to get used to it, CS got pushed back in levels because some people found it overpowered and overshadowing vanilla shotgun >.>
