Oh it is my bad, I guess I was too tired yesterday. Somehow I messed up the abyssal plains line with the wall-containment mortem message. :D
On level 12 he romped upon the Abyssal Plains.
He barely escaped the trap set for him.
Yeah, I know I should play more DoomRL. :D
The corpse management stuff was usually too tedious for me, I think thats why I sticked with UV. But doing that properly for 24 levels requires skill and patience, so that makes this effort worthy!

I have been playing this game for years, even way back when it was pure ascii. but until I started lurking on these forums, I never seriously considered doing nightmare runs. Its funny how you adapt to the difficulty of it, and now, after a couple of months of playing nightmare consistently, I have adapted to the stress of not having the luxury of corpses staying dead. It really is a beautiful way to play.

To answer your question, no I haven't cleared the wall/containment area on N!. but I will, as my next goal is to complete a standard N! game, so hopefully on one of the runs I will have a rocket launcher and a bunch of ammo to clear those corpses and blow up the wall/barriers.

Thanks for the encouragement. Really appreciated. :)

Congratz on that! A Nightmare victory is a huge achievement in my dictionary and you should be proud of yourself in every possible way! That Jackhammer is a very very lucky find with AoSh. :D
Have you cleared the wall/containment area too? Good job!

Been lurking here for a while now, thought it was time I posted something.

To wit:

First ever completed Nightmare run!

Not super amazing compared to the skills of some of you guys around here, but quite happy nonetheless, managing to snare the shottyman Diamond and Platinum badges.

P.S. I was lucky enough to find a Jackhammer on this run. And I gotta say, a Jackhammer with the Army of the Dead perk is a thing of devastating power. Gotta watch that ammo consumption though...

Cheers. :)

Oh! I didn't realise it was already a thing. Then again, some players might not know about it yet, and I hope this tip will be of some value if they accidentally stumble upon it. :3

Muahahaha! Fear my Inquisiting power! 0w0
I actually attempted another AoP run a while ago, with a similar build. Got blown to smithereens by a hell knight because hubris and haste. >_>
Thank you! ^^

For Mt. Erebus, you really only need one Envirosuit to cross the short patch of lava at the left end of the map.  After that, you can use the other envirosuits at the right end of the map.

Also, questions like this should probably go in the Quick Questions thread.

I am playing as a Marine with the shotgun Master trait on Ultra-violence. How many envirosuit packs should I bring to Mt. Erebus?

This mortem is less to record an achievement and more to illustrate the tip I'd like to share: if you're struggling with getting a particular badge, consider pairing it with AoMC...

Heh, yeah, I think it's safe to say that AoMC has a long history of helping people achieve badges and medals.  In fact, I got my very first Diamond badge with the help of that challenge!  :D

Still, what you did is a pretty nice achievement.  :)  I don't think I even have Inquisitor Gold, (AoP scares me) so congrats!  :D

I wanted to nab yet another badge for a while, and yesterday this Sunday my choice fell on the Inquisitor Gold Badge (to remind, that's to complete AoP on any difficulty). To ease the task, I've went for dual-angeling my favorite cheesy combo of AoMC+Int2+Shotguns, on HMP. I think it's obvious why I call it "cheesy", and while it does depend somewhat on the luck (getting surrounded by monsters on level generation will almost always be the end of a poor Scout, especially so on the early levels), this time I didn't have any particularly bad patches and managed to succeed on the first try.

Notables:
  • Found enough nukes to earn the Fallout Gold Cross while holding on to the nuclear BFG to the end.
  • At the very end, shot the FINAL EVIL with an overloaded high-power BFG. I hoped it would be more powerful, but oh well.
  • Assembled a plasmatic double shotgun, then slapped myself in the face (figuratively). >_>
  • Carried a Combat Translocator from the Armory through the entire game, but used it barely once or twice. I find it ralely comes in handy at all, but I still kept it in case of emergency.

This mortem is less to record an achievement and more to illustrate the tip I'd like to share: if you're struggling with getting a particular badge, consider pairing it with AoMC and play it as Scout+Int2. Not every challenge can be paired like this, of course, but some, especially the hardest ones... I got the Masochist Platinum this way, too (also Conqueror, I think).

Trying to do the same now, but on UV. Platinum, platinum~ :>
