 12 of those were killed by something unknown.
 61 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 43 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 68 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 7 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 55 killed the bitch and survived.
 6 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

In the SGDQ spirit, I've done a speedrun of DoomRL. Generally speedrunners like games that take about an hour or two to beat - all the most popular ones are like that. The only thing even remotely that long in DoomRL is conquering or playing Nightmare!, and I'm way better at one than the other.

So I invented a speedrun category - HMP 100%. Not 100% kills, but rather experience 100% of the game, which means getting the conqueror badge. I'd love to try this on UV some time, except no I actually wouldn't because all the special levels are twenty times harder.

My early splits (speedrunner talk for time taken to reach certain milestones of the game) are really bad in this run, I spent a lot of time before arena looking for shotgun shells - you can't do it with just 30. My chained court was also very slow, it's a difficult level to do fast. Everything after that went okay. For comparison, my "Arena Complete" split was about 4:00 (my best is 2:59) and "Court Complete" was about 8:30 (best is 6:05 assuming an excellent arena)

I accidentally got ironman early, making the cyberdemon fight annoying (that is, because you go berserk if you take 33% or more of your max HP in damage, and his melee attack is too weak for my max HP if I get ironman). Luckily I could still get berserk off of arch-viles or limbo would've been impossible.

This run was pretty lucky (it's attempt number 52 according to my time-keeping program, WSplit) - I didn't die in the court which is basically as lucky as it gets, but I also got a whole bunch of medpacks for later levels - I didn't even have to explore the randomly generated levels for them all that much.
