After my recent monk I just ascended a tourist; makes it a "streak" of two.
I've got only a few new impressions, though. I was frightened to ESP-detect
an Astral Deva - the first of two in the whole game - in Medusa's house (on
the titan version), but, after reading about it in the Wiki, decided to not
introduce myself to her. And at some instance I met my first Planetar, which
I decided to relocate by a teleport zap rather than testing my buffness
against him or her. They must be about the toughest monsters, and I suppose,
as angelic beings, they disrespect Elbereth. And finally that mystery about
my Werebane getting disenchanted twice that I already mentioned elsewhere.
I used two wishes and left the dungeons with a fully charged wand of wishing.
Ah, and I just see that I seem to have got XL-drained somewhere at the Astral
Plane; I lost three levels it seems and didn't notice during the heat of the
fight there. Which reminds me another incident; on Gehennom's bottom level,
which was a "maze" with clouds as "walls", I got attacked by a horde of grey
humanoids (don't recall the species). The clouds made it possible that they
attack me from all sides unhindered. The bad thing was that I noticed too
late that one of them zapped me with a wand of level drain repeatedly. These
wands are a really nasty invention in Slashem; the are of comparably little
use in the player's hands, but are most effective in the hand of a monster.
(I already had a bad experience about that in my previous game when I reached
the Adventurer's Guild level.) Anyway a fun and interesting game!
