Post your favorite YASDs! (from any roguelike)
« on: May 28, 2007, 01:07:18 PM »
The dump for mine is here: [Nethack]

http://alt.org/nethack/chardump/Averin/Averin.20070225-160002.txt

So I was at Medusa's island, and I was like "ooh, hey, an H!  lemme attack it for the strength gain!"  And it turned out to be a peaceful titan, which decided to summon dragons and mind flayers.  DYWYPI?

(I assume it didn't help to be burdened either.  But at least I had a titan in my kill list! :))

I can't believe this file doesn't actually tell you how much score you achieved!

So, basically, I was stupid. I could've read a scroll of blinking, blink to the stairs, and go up. I ALWAYS forget that.

In any case, I need some tips on how to take on hidras! Thanks! The first one I killed I used a wand of fireballs repeatedly, after managing to paralyze it with another wand. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to paralyze this one, she resisted both my attempts, and then she was too close for my to fireball (I only had two charges on either wand anyway). And from what I see, every time you cut one of its heads off, two more grow. I'm not even sure she gets damaged!

Anyway... WOHOOOOOOOO! Fun!

Hydras only grow more heads if you actually cut one... so one solution is to go with maces/hammers instead of axes. They are both governed by STR, so you'll do plenty of damage anyway :P. Another solution is to have a flaming branded weapon. The only problem with maces is the early game, when you must find a reliable source of dissecting... And wielding a cursed dagger can be *pain* in the early game :P

Somehow I remember this from Nethack. I changed to dragon and felt really powerful, killing stuff and all. Then I ran to cockatrice and thought I can kill it without it being able to hit me even once. I just forgot that dragons attack by biting..

Stone Soup I had many minions and i couldve led them in and left but i just had to take the orc warrior myself. One of my farthest characters too. I had SO many options but i thought i could fight it out. I was an idiot. That is probably my biggest mistake on ALL RLs just because i started on Angband and ToME where you can do that.

Oh, those orc priests, beware!

They are nasty, and must be taken out as soon as possible.
Also, that glowing orcish war axe of the orc warrior was probably dealing more damage than you expected.

I died lots of deaths in crawl like this too (and still do occasionally). Crawl punishes thoughtless play asap :)

I had two interesting YASD's in Nethack:

First time I ever reached the castle, I stood under the drawbridge when I played the tune. Which always results in a nice instakill.

A few years later I reached the astral planes for the very first time, where I promptly met famine. Who hit me a few times, while I was trying to kill him. Starving me, steps away from victory.

Man, in nethack I rarely remember being able to clear the gnomish mines :|

My worst death was Crawl, down in the toxic parts of the dungeon. Stupid hydra kept growing heads! I didn't know my axe was cutting them and they were growing back...

Another stupid one is all the zombies being "z", and they're rarely dangerous. But then, at some point, you're further down in the dungeon, and it's a WYVERN zombie... still the same old 'z'. You can guess what happens.

But after playing the character, I have to say its a monster.
It was simply fun to stumble upon a vault of about 20 hydras, dragons and whatnot, only to have completely wasted them 4 Turns later. And once you were done, thanks to Vehument you still had enough energy to arrogantly thow a Crystal Spear towards a sheep.

Nethack: I just came across in a bones level in Minetown. Incredible piles of loot and gold everywhere for this early in the game and no terrible monsters guarding it. But I put off identifying the scrolls and potions I'd picked up. I killed a dwarf zombie, got distracted, then decided to eat the corpse (no other food around) forgetting that it was from a zombie. Upon getting food poisoning I used the unicorn horn I'd picked up, which was cursed, so I fumbled. Never having used a cursed unicorn horn before, I thought it might still work so tried again a couple times, but instead it me even iller. So I tried praying but got no response. Time ran out and I was dead.

Death message is "poisoned by a unicorn horn". Hmm.

Stupidity: I had potions of holy water to bless the horn, most of my potions were unidentified healing potions and I also had a stack of identify scrolls and a ring of poison resistance I should have been wearing.
