I'm so grrrr mad. I had been working on this priest for about 7 hours
of real-time and he was "invincible". Stormy +7, A/C -30, MR, Reflection,
etc. All the scrolls in their different flavors, wand of wishing and
death, all potions, bag of holding, tons of spells including magic
mapping and identify. You name it. I made it to the sanctum and
killed the priest by farting in his general direction. Never have I
had an easier game. I've ascended 4-5 times or so on NAO, and I never
felt more sure this would go all the way. I even planned for a little
purple worm party on Astral and filling the place with acid blobs to
get rid of the riders.
Well, the best laid plans... On the ascension run I ran into Asmo
who dispatched me in three moves with his cold attack. Forget to get
me some cold resistance, and his hits average about 100 HP! In retrospect
I had a few options, like dropping the amulet and reading a cursed scroll
of tele, but that would involve getting into the bag and getting the
scroll out, so I may not have had enough time.
I need to take a week off.
Yeah, Asmo's how I came to fear giggling gremlins. Also learned that role
granted resistances can be stolen as well. Oh, and happy Friday the 13th...
