Is there a way to focus the camera back on the character? Sometimes my mouse pans the view away from where my character is standing and it's sometimes more of a hassle to slowly force the view back to where my character is standing.

Thanks for the tip. It makes sense but of course I didn't even think about doing that.
I definitely need to learn how to stay focused and not make errors like that. But to be honest sometimes a YASD is entertaining in its own crazy way, unlike getting one-shotted by Mancubi. That's just my opinion though.

243
(alt titles: Plasma damage goes through targets, barrels hurts, don't shoot at barrels at close range, etc.)

I should have been studying. I decided to play Ao100 instead.
I've completed Ao100 on HNTR once and that took 5 hours, over the course of about 4 sittings.
And then there have been probably 30 other failed attempts on Ao100 on HNTR, HMP, and UV.

It's still a fun mode, though. Like it a lot.

Anyway. This YASD came about me trying to avoid 2 viles and then me going into a door and finding myself standing right in front of a revenant. Here's where my brain had a bit of a "durr hurr" moment.

Now, I clearly saw that there was a barrel behind the revenant.
But I didn't want to knock back the revenant with the shotty, so I switched to my burst cannon. <-- Love this assembly. Love it. Not sure if there are better ones.

Bet you can't guess what happened afterward.

Also I'm not sure why I chose to build toward Badass. I know that I wanted to get it at some point down the line but in retrospect I would have put a point in either HR or Reloader.

The Necroarmor drains health to repair durability, but if it is modded with an onyx mod, does that override the health drain to repair itself?

245
Thanks for the warm welcomes. :)

I've picked up Azrael's Scythe once, but it was to pique my curiosity if one could snag it on AoOC. I know about the Angelic Armor and the Nuclear BFG 9k from clearing Mortuary on a small handful of HNTR runs.

Man, I should have just ran for the stairs. I had a homing phase device, used it, and should have just picked up whatever spheres and armors were around and tumble down the stairs. Also thinking about it more I remembered that the fire-proof armor I had wasn't inadvertently tossed, just broken on the mancubus-only floor. Hurrrr.

Should have kept my Arena Master's staff and attempt Vaults instead. >_>

(alternate title: Yet another scrub roguelike player enters the fray.)

I've been playing this version of DoomRL (actually, the only version of DoomRL that I've ever played...I'm a late bloomer.) for the last five months, with varying activity. I really like DoomRL, but man, does it irk me when I die because I don't know how to deal with commandos and arachnotrons in the early-game. Guess that just comes with experience. Though I've noticed that it's definitely easier to deal with such things with a rapid-fire weapon than the Army of the Dead + Melee build that I am desperately trying to detach from.

This run was a spur-of-the-moment attempt after one restart due to the sporadic nature of the former humans that meander around base entry...
As stated in the previous paragraph I'm trying to quit my addiction to the Army of the Dead build that I normally use for...whenever I can, actually. So this time I considered a Sharpshooter build, but then quickly opted for a masterless build. Entrenchment might have been a good idea, but I have severe ammo management issues...Maybe I should try an Ammochain build first before I try Entrenchment? Anyways.

Phobos was, for the most part, quick and painless. I wimped out on attempting the Wall, and later I was wishing that I had at least tried to clear it for that wonderful backpack. Even if I had escaped with a few kills, that would have meant a little more experience and some free inventory slots. But oh well.

I feel that this run could have been better if not for three key mistakes, as follows:

Mistake #1: I decided to attempt City of Skulls in hopes of getting a hatred skull or a blood skull. I practically rely on those to clear the Mortuary. I ended up clearing City of Skulls with minimal difficulty and medpacks, but I had a hilarious brain lapse where the agony elemental died right next to me, dropped its skulls, and spawned its pain elemental and lost souls, and then for some reason I decided to use a shockwave pack. It destroyed the skulls that dropped from the agony elemental, and I was scratching my head and wondering, why did I do that.

Mistake #2: I assembled a fire-proof red armor sometime before fighting the Cyberdemon. If I can get the mods, I always do so. Though in this run I learned that dodging Cyberdemon's shots is actually pretty easy and doable with just a suit of tactical armor. Might have been just my luck, though. But anyway. While clearing out inventory I inadvertently tossed my fire-proof red armor somewhere and was not aware of it until I was getting ready to enter the Mortuary.

Mistake #3: Entering the Mortuary has always been a bad idea for me. When the level started, I thought that I was really lucky, as two viles started in plain view from my starting position. Not wasting any time, I gunned both of them down with my burst plasma rifle. And then I wandered around, hoping to find the other viles quickly before they could resurrect the dead army of the Mortuary, but of course, I was too slow. And of course, I ran out of ammo. It just wouldn't be a YASD for me if I don't run out of ammo at least once or twice. I think what I need to learn is how to gib corpses that aren't next to the wall.

The Mortuary really has a strange sensation to it--that desperate feeling one gets when one runs out of ammo and is frantically scrounging for ammo in the corpses. 
If there was a counter that showed how many times you've died to a particular monster, the arachnotron would most likely be at the top of the list for me. Stupid things...

This run isn't my best, but it was one I felt like sharing.
