 69 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 64 of those were killed.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

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

This is so ridiculous I can't believe it.

I did my standard strategy until the CC - i.e. OH GOD RUN RUN RUN RUN, got the chainsaw, started tearing everything up.
Hellgate was a little silly, I was already on 200% health when I realised that large health globes act like zerks on AoB, so I tore through the first wave like a charm. Berserk ran out as I killed the first bruiser, leaving me to use my last large medpack to survive.
I thanked the RNG for not giving me a bloody complex full of mancubi on the UC entrance level, and entered. Went like a dream. I proc'd berserk on the first seven hits I dealt during the demon wave and promptly sent the AoD packing to Timbuktu or wherever the hell he's from.

I decided to to City of Skulls as I'd just got MVm, and thought it would be a novel idea.
It didn't go that well.
I thought that I'd be able to massacre the Lost Souls - forgetting that there are Pain Elementals too - effectively coating me in burning bone while the smug one-eyed bastards stand just inside my vision range and spawn more bloody skulls.
I used the LS' alt-fire to rid myself of my lovely new bone coat, before realising that they'd spawned EVEN BLOODY MORE. There wasn't much chance of me dying, because hundreds of Lost Souls can't really stand up to a really, really irritated Marine, his unbreakable onyx armour and his holy spear when he's healing whenever he hits them.
I had to use three phase devices to get out. Found two nukes on consecutive levels - 21 and 22.

On 23, I accidentally pulled the worst possible lev- hey wait, do you smell that? That gasoline sm- OH GOD THERE'S LAVA EVERYWHERE.

Entered Lava Pits to survive, promptly exited. There was a unique but knowing my luck it was probably the Nano Pack or (god forbid) Medical Powerarmour.

Level 24 was absolutely ridiculous.
Spawned in the corner, speared a mancubus, was ambushed by two barons, killed those. Then, my zerk ran out.
So, I picked up a homing phase, used it.
Only to be ambushed by two spiders that can't walk right and a mancubi.
Killed - literally - instantly.
If only my zerk had lasted two more turns. I'd have survived.

Special notes:
See that room on the left? I never entered that.
That % was another nuke.
To add to the two I already had.

and those six mods were the only mods I found - all of them in Phobos Hell.

I'm off to play Doom 2 again and beat arachnotrons to death with my bare hands.

Owww hahahaha... seems like a really tough-luck scenario.  I'm sorry for the insta-death, but this being DoomRL, death comes swiftly in the most strangest ways...

I was sort of wondering just why my very first standard win would be on AoB, and I think that questioning the RNG made it angry.
I've also just noticed that I dodged eight shots from the spiders - and still died.
Mind you, I've died quicker - case in point: MaLaKaI from ADOM.
And the old favourite: gnome w/ wand of death.

Killed on the stairs of level 24?  :o  That's rough!  :|

As for the Pain Elementals, there's a technique to dealing with them.  If executed properly, the City of Skulls is paradise for someone with Vampyre trait.  Just keep in mind that the PE's only spawn lost souls if they can see you, so be ready to retreat into the corners, out of their view, at any moment if too many of them come into view.  Approach them again only after you've killed the excess lost souls.

Also,

OH GOD THERE'S LAVA EVERYWHERE.

Entered Lava Pits to survive...

How ironic!  :P

EDIT:  Just because.  :D
