 438 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:

 1 of those @was killed by something unknown.
 5 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 20 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 1 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.

Okay, this was RIDICULOUS. I just made a post over there somewhere bemoaning my inability to find my first victory; for a bit of thought, I decided as a lark to take on Pacifism (partly to get a few ideas on movement). Got lucky with some well-timed berserk packs, and even luckier with some invincibilities. Snuck around some of the more annoying enemies, tricked a few into blowing themselves up with barrels, got a lot of caves in the lower levels (lured a few demons into lava pits, out-ran the arachnotrons, and bypassed one with a homing phase device) and only about two wide-open levels (remember those berserks? Also dived into the Cathedral on one of those because it was the safer staircase). Evaded all the revenants and mancubi I found and got to the bottom; threw down the starting nuke and that was that.

Even snaffed a couple of speedrun medals into the bargain that I had no thought of ever getting near to.

:D

Entirely predictable that I'd find a firestorm mod on a run where it's completely pointless, of course...

So, the important thing... what did I learn from this? Well, the main thing is that trying to kill everything is only going to get me killed. Also that running is surprisingly handy for dodging arachnotron shots; that sometimes it's more useful to have the enemies kill each other than doing it myself; that if I avoid mancubi, revenants and archviles then I'll probably win comfortably; and that sometimes, it all just comes down to plain dumb luck.

Tell me about it... So far the only time I've found any special mods (except with Scavenger) was during the time I did speedruns. And of course at that point there were too few levels left to get Whizkid...

Just got another AoPc partial win as well; I figured if I'd got one speedrun medal under my belt without really trying I could probably get another one too. Major Icarus and Compet-N Gold are now mine (missed Platinum by 3:13 because of my uncle coming to say goodnight and talking about my plans to go to the hospital tomorrow...). Also sprinted across the Mortuary thanks to a lucky invincibility on the previous level, which may be how I also got another UAC Star; medal for kills without damage + pacifism = LOL.

Anyway. 8 medals finally means I've got my Heroic Bronze badge and the Mortuary escape got me my Reaper Silver. Nicked the NBFG out of the Mortuary for my 41st special, too. Huzzah.

Heh... first victory = pacifism. Marvellous job.
It's as the Dalai Lama says... "silence is sometimes the best answer." :D
