Having fun with this guy. sCthang is quite a difficult variant to get started in, at least as a mage, but I think I've finally gotten the hang of it. It's pretty tough to gain power until those potions of Constitution start rolling in. Finally killed Shelob, and now I'm not sure where to go next. Tried the Demon Spire but I'm stuck on a quest for Medusa, somewhere before the top part of it. Her tons of hit points, plasma bolts, and hydra summoning have been prohibitive. Kind of nasty that fast monsters will fire a couple volleys of spells at me to my one bow shot, even though I'm at +9 or +10 speed. Had more than a couple double curse close calls with Shelob. But anyway, I'm uploading this guy because it's my best effort yet. :)

Well, cruising along. The big power booster was finding a GCV in the Vault of the Sword. Got some good items there. Finally found enough con potions to see a difference in hit points. Down to five or so dungeons left. Really having fun with this guy. Had a number of close calls in that GCV (three dracoliches, among others), including one druj (I forget which type). Somehow I made up my mind to fight it out with him. I tossed a potion of ruination at him, which does 20d20 damage. What I didn't realize was that it did that kind of damage in a RADIUS, thus I nearly killed myself with the attack, which would have really put a damper on any immediate future sCthangband playing. But fortunately I just knocked myself rather low, and didn't die, and ended up finishing the druj. Anyway, it's been cool so far. Got a small list of bugs to send to the maintainer.

Well, took out another dungeon: The Collector's Cave. Funny who the "Collector" turned out to be. Anyway, beat up a horde of uniques on that last level. Had a few close calls but managed to kick enough ass to finish it. I don't recall finidng any good item in particular, but I've decided to start carrying Necromonicon around, which in sCthang seems fairly common. Next dump should see my character with a much higher Necromancy skill. Seems Mindcraft has become my principle weapon, as melee leads monsters to get multiple spell attacks on me (sometimes) but I haven't seen this happen with Mindcraft yet. Next dungeon: The Dragon's Lair. Glaurung and Anglacon (sp?) are supposedly housed there. Ought to be interesting. Down to 4 dungeons left. :)

Wiped out a couple more places... the Dragon's Lair last night, and just finished the Tower of Koth today. I have to say, I really enjoy the tower-level quests. Dangerous because you don't know what you're going to face, other than it will be in your face when you go up a level. In case you haven't played sCthang, monsters get a free round of whacks on you when you go up or down a staircase. Can make for some scary moments--possibly even insta-death, if you are weak enough, or if the monster(s) are powerful enough (especially with all the built-in random quest levels). Also interesting about towers is they are one screen. So expect some fast playing excitement. Thus far I haven't had any really major problems with them with this guy. But who knows what Necropolis, or the last place (Kadash, is it?) has in store for me.

Kit only changed slightly--instead, I've been working on Necromancy and have continued to beef up Mindcraft. I'm still hungry for some better spellbooks. And my endurance skill has barely budged, despite my use of melee for dragons and some other high hit point monsters. It's rather stingy, apparently, for late-game advance.

Hope to conquer Necropolis late tonight or tomorrow. This game should be over, one way or another, this weekend. Grumash appreciates your silent prayers for his success. :)

Well, finished up the Necropolis. Picked up the good dungeon Necromancy book, but my necromancy skill isn't quite high enough to warrant using its best spells. Aside from lowering fail rate, higher skill also means you can cast the spells faster. Otherwise, you'll get off one spell, and some nearby spellcaster will blast you 4 times during the time it takes you to cast it. Seeing as how some of the guys at this depth can cast mana storm (bone golem, anyone?), I need to be *very* careful in that regard.

Woo-hoo! Got the win. The overall end game (last 1000') really wasn't too difficult, with my mind wave being as high as it was, and then getting Hellfire to a decent fail rate. Unlike other *bands, speed items weren't a big issue (won with +13 speed) because spells have their own speed rates, depending on skill. Movement speed doesn't affect it at all. So end game equipment wasn't the huge issue it normally is in most *bands.

The game was certainly fun. Thanks to all who have contributed to making sCthangband a terrific variant. It'd be cool if other people gave it a shot--once you get over the hump of getting a character started, it's lots of fun. My only success at doing this came from approaching all the dungeons in order, starting with the one with the lowest depth unique guardian, and so on, on to the end.

Congratulations, sir!

Congratulations! What's the deal with the numbers after items, e.g. "a Potion of Life (1d1)"? Is that the damage it does when thrown?
