very impressive, i'll have to watch through the video to pick up some N! pistol techniques

Thanks.  :)  I hope you get some use out of the video; it's a lot longer than some of my other ones, so I worry that people will find it boring.  (three hours each to get through Phobos and Deimos!)  :o

Absolutely amazing, well done.

Thank you!  :D

Oh, right... *clear* the Anomaly.

I guess I had forgotten, but *that* was actually the hardest part of this challenge =P I think I managed mine with a lucky phase, but I remember trying rocket jump with Fireangel and all kinds of crazy stuff. Lemme see if I can dig up the mortem...

Edit: How convenient, I made a video. Looks like it was Fireangel after all - makes sense, since it works for both the Anomaly and Babel.

Edit2: Ok, after watching it, I actually did use a phase device. Fireangel is still the best method for handling the Cyberdemon, short of a lucky Invulnerability, though.

I seem to remember getting Gatekeeper Diamond in a N! game, so I did some digging and found this thread from version 0.9.9.6.  I'm pretty sure that hasn't changed between versions; you just have to make sure all of the enemies at the Anomaly are dead when you finish the level, (and didn't damage you) and defeat the Cyberdemon damageless as well.

lol actually it looks like the oversight is mine as you need to clear it to get the diamond not just pass through. on UV i'm assuming the technique would be the same, by phasing past the trap, killing the bruisers first and then instead of leaving, going back for the trap enemies?

Huh... that's a rather unfortunate oversight.

Gatekeeper Diamond is a bastard to get on U, to say nothing of N!. You deserved that.

Maybe you should follow the example of an infamous former player here and just edit it in to the mortem...

Nice progress.

I thought I saw someone mention this before, but I can't seem to find it now that I went to go quote it, so...

You should consider putting your Badge count in your signature, like Tormuse and I have(and several others on these forums) have them. I realize the way you're playing means you would have to be constantly updating it, but it'd be nice for those of us following your thread here to have a quick way to track your overall progress.

That, and the way you're going, it'll be a status symbol before long ;)

Day 12:

I started by getting UAC Silver Badge out of the way. Hurt Me Plenty was pretty easy overall, though I nearly died on Spider's Lair. I camped the upper-left wall, but got surrounded and had to use a Phase Device. I was sent almost directly to the staircase and considered just escaping, but I managed to regain control and grab the BFG. I generally play Shottyhead builds on runs without restrictions, but the Cyberdemon is a bit of a challenge, so getting the BFG was very important. Once I got far enough into the game and comfortable stair-diving, I quickly finished the game.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

My next target was Lava Silver Badge. I went back and forth on playing through a Technician to get Cerberus Boots by the time I would reach Mt Erebus/Lava Pits, or playing out a Scout on Overconfidence and hoping for lucky item drops.

My first good run was with the Technician strat, and I built the boots on floor 7, which is insanely early! Especially considering the 4th pack must be Power, it was very lucky and I was set to go. Unfortunately though, I was fighting against an Elite Shotgun Guy in Military Base and didn't realize that his blasts can destroy the walls and my cover, which lead to me getting killed.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Frustrated, I tried a couple runs with the Scout strategy and wasn't having the luck needed. I had one particular run where I was looking set to go, but a Mancubus hit me and I got chained into a series of barrel explosions and died:

A couple runs later, I wasn't having the luck again, but I happened to stumble upon Grammaton Cleric Beretta, and decided to turn it into a run for killing the Spider Mastermind with it. All was going well, but on floor 7, I got banged up badly with an awkward position in a Cacodemon cave:

Keep in mind that with this being Angel of Impatience, I had no way of healing. So as usual, I took the Spider Mastermind on very slowly:

The plan was to damage her enough down to "almost dead", and then finish her off with Grammaton Cleric Beretta:

Fortunately, it went well and I got a surprise medal instead!

I'll probably try some more for that badge and rotate a bit with other goals!
