[U|AoRA|YAAM] Quartermaster Diamond Badge!
« on: September 30, 2011, 20:38 »

And the diamonds just keep coming!  Woot!  :D  (And this time, I was wise enough to *not* enter the Mortuary)  ;)

This one had too many close calls to count!  I finished several levels with less than ten seconds left in the nuke.  In fact, in Hell's Arena and Hell's Armory, I reached the stairs with one second on the clock!  :o

Notes on this run:

I took a big risk in summoning the Shambler in Hell's Armory, but I had acquired Malicious Blades trait and assembled my first Chainsword by then, and fortunately, he didn't teleport around *too* much, so I was able to kill him.  (Just in time!)  :D

I used the Azrael's Scythe's Whisper of Death attack once in the City of Skulls to clear the area of Lost Souls that were threatening to overwhelm me.

I held on to a suit of agility-modded green armour for the whole game before I was able to turn it into tactical armour on level 19, only to lose it three levels later to a Baron of Hell and Arch-Vile barrage.  (Grrr!)

The last two levels before Cybie were the most tense...

Level 23 featured a frustrating group of Arch-Viles that kept raising creatures faster than I could destroy them.  It took a lot of time to make even small advances, so when I was close to running out of time, I got desperate and just charged into the crowd and took my chances.  I burned through all my med-packs, but I succeeded.  I actually used two homing phase devices on that level, one to get me out of a tight spot where I was surrounded, and the other to get me to the exit at the end.  (With less than ten seconds on the clock)

Level 24 "blasted me with unholy atmosphere," so I kind of had a double countdown.  :)  This problem was compounded by the fact that I had no med-packs and the only source of healing I found was a small healing globe.  I finished with 41% health left and fully intended to nuke Cybie for a partial win, but...

On level 25, when I tried to arm the nuke I had been carrying, I was greeted by the message, "Are you out of your mind?"  (I guess you can't place nukes in Angel of Red Alert)  :P  I suppose I could have just waited out the timer on the nuke and gotten a partial win that way...  (for that matter, I could probably just have let him kill me and the nuke would get him that way)  In any case, I decided to take my chances and try to take him out in hand to hand combat.  (After an initial BFG blast)  :)  I took full advantage of my speed and Dodgemaster to dance around him, hitting him with my dual chainswords.  I still got grazed by a few explosions that hit surrounding pillars that brought me down to 28%, but I did it!  I won!  Yay!  :D

 209 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 165 of those were killed.
 25 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 14 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 12 killed the bastard and survived.

It hit me reading this mortem that, unless it doesn't block Trigun nuking, a full win is impossible in AoRA.

Trivia aside, nice job!

Not necessarily...  There's still the Lava Element.  All you have to do is run away from the Cyberdemon for five minutes.  :)
