[U|99%|YAFW] Suddenly a successful Conqueror
« on: March 25, 2024, 08:16 »

Got another screw-up in real life to stop bothering about them for a while, and rummaged through my hard drive discovering an almost-forgotten install of DoomRL. After some easier wins (including HMP AoMr which I had to abandon YAAM when hitting an arach cave staring down 4 barrels of plasma, but with 2 steps to stairs) I have decided to tackle a Conqueror run, initially declaring it would be one should I manage to clear that Unholy Cathedral. I failed to escape the trap in the Anomaly, so had to blast off several cacos in the entry room, then determined to at least try doing damageless Hell's Armory (good thing it rolled instead of Deimos Lab), receiving a rare reward of N+O packs. The run ended up with a literal shower of stuff! Just look at this:

Nuke plasma was a very happy find in Armory, or just a tad onward (the run took a lot of interruptions, so my recallings are messy), plasma shotgun dropped right before the Mortuary so I went to take it with me to clear the floor, BFGs were pre-determined find, but also there was a phaseshift in Hell-2, a ballistic vest in Hell-4, an Acid Spitter in Vaults, and that stupid Lava Elemental in the Pits was a SERIOUS PITA, he left me with 18%HP and zero medpaks (IIRC I kept one on hand), and then a very funny blasting cave of mancubi followed suit, lowering me at one time to 2% (1 HP), but an extremely timely large medpack saved my sorry butt. So Spidey went BOOM, JC went up close and personal, for him I've just decided to equip melee and charge to the face. And that 1 missed kill was likely a forgotten lost soul in Hell-1, after I swayed a bit and didn't verify I've cleared the level... Pity.

 406 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 347 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 21 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 34 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 26 killed the bitch and survived.
 5 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

Yep, I've got about 10 total A-mods, but no serious boots, so I had to made antigrav out of steel boots. What a disgrace.

You might not be pleased to find out then that the Lava Elemental is getting buffed and The Lava Pits/Mt. Erebus are being made harder in 0.9.9.8 :)

Thanks, would keep that in mind. :) In fact I did cross one 0998b3 run, but did skip Pits for that very reason (also because I had no env-suits to venture there XD it was an AoB run).
