This one sucks the cock of Satan. It should be illegal to get so close and lose... Ouch... Best of luck on your next try.

Yup, but you do know how to fly a plane and woo nurses and make all sorts of trouble for your higher-ranking officers. And on top of that, you have invented a whole new concept, not to say forcibly entered it in the usage of non-argot language. Really, lovely nickname.

@babul: Those last two are insane. Is that even possible? The whole level flooded with lava?

Dear all,
haven't laughed like this in a while. Purses (!), wallets and money-wielding all around. Well, i will have some fun researching the Vaults and Cybie and everything else. Next time i'll find a Dragonslayer (yeah, i know, good luck with that) i'll just stay there until the end of time, trying stuff up.

*still mumbling*
you freaks...

*lightens up*

Does that work? It never crossed my mind. Since it obviously is a melee uber-weapon, i thought you needed Brute 3 or something to wield. Does anyone know how to do it?
Which reminds me: where will i find info on
a) how to reach JC (suspect that i will have to destroy every pillar to find the hidden stairs and then kill Cybie or maybe not kill him and just go one lvl deeper?)
b) how to crack the Vaults

Plus, i have now decided that DoomRL is not a game. It is a meditation tool, meant to simulate the human condition. Nearer, Spidergod, to thee...

ps. i enjoy immensely the fact that these items are so rare that a simple sighting merits a screenshot and posting in the forum. For example, I have never found a Phaseshift Armor.

Ok, Captain update and a few other things. First of all, thank you all for your comments. Now, i've played some more and have a few more thoughts to share.
First of all, attained Captain Rank *shouts of glee all around, bows modestly to the crowds*
Secondly, is AoI known to have more unique and advanced drops. I invite you to scrutinize the lovely screenshots i have prepared for you below. Two consecutive games.

This is the first, i had never seen this before

And this, wtf? (explanations needed: i only read the uniques and special levels wiki after i have encountered them on the field, so i had no idea what i should have been doing)
*hint* look at my equipped weapon (i was playing shottyman and eventually won by thermie, mortems to follow)*

I have started playing full-screen even though i like the above font much more. Is there a way to play full-screen with this font? This must be a pretty nooby question, i know... *sigh*

Wish me luck, Angel of Fucking Purity beckons...

@raekuul: tried AoB. Imps. Ouch. Loved "metric shitload" :) Oh, sweet jesus, i'll have to use that traitpath!

Hi, thanks for your suggestions, I used to take intuition but since i play chaingun i dropped it for SoB. Intuition is only good at 3rd level. The rest i could really do without. Gothic Boots were slow. Never use them.
On the other hand i have found no use in strafing against imps. Is there a reason for that? Cacs may miss from time to time, but darn imps find the sweet spot about 80% of the time. No, i don't get HR, but i do know how to run :)

So, i've played DoomRL for a while now. Have something like 30 deaths.
In the normal game I've gotten to lvl 12. What is completely strange is that in AoMr I managed (on the first try) to get up to lvl 14 (banging my head on the wall that i couldn't make it up to 15 to get the Corporal requisite). Is AoMr actually easier with that beautiful adv pistol? At least on earlier levels?
I only play on HMP, don't ask why. I see no point in playing easier diff. Which is kind of annoying. HMP won't let me play (i am not that good yet) and my stupid conscience won't let me play any easier than that.
One last point. I heeded the Wiki's advice not to be spoiled, so i only read Unique entries after i have collected them (so far: Blaster, Butcher's Cleaver of course, Assault Shotgun, Phaseshift Armor and Gothic Boots) and the special stages only after i go into them (more risk, but boy, what fun). So i was granted two excellent gaming moments. AoMr, lvl 13 i hear quite close to me a new sound. I was actually very-very afraid for the life of my little @, before i realized this is a game. It was a Mancubus, i think. Second, i had gotten to the Wall. Materialize. Quiet. Move a couple of spaces. Nothing. Everything is quiet. You know the feeling if you have gotten to the Wall without reading up on it. Start blasting at the Wall. Won't spoil it for the people who haven't been there, but when i finally blasted through i stared at my screen for a long time before i made my next move :)
All in all an excellent game. Waiting for the new release so that i can really go to town with the player file and the unique list and everything else that KK is planning. Keep running.

Unlucky :)
Or maybe YACRD
Code-related... *sigh*
22 Deaths and all i got was this lousy t-shirt from Lvl 12.

ImpCon '09 Report
Found myself on the right room and realized that my chances were slim. Opened handily-placed door on the left (Thanks Kornel, your cruelty know no bounds). Saw my chances evaporate in a mist of unrealized hope. Made screenshot to post in the forum. Tried to get out of that mess. YAUD.
