Won for the first time!

Postby mickeymammoth » Mon May 11, 2009 3:16 am

Wow. I played rogue for hundreds of hours in the early 80s, some nethack later on, and Rogue Touch for the last 2 months, and I never even made it to level 26 before! Tonight, for the very first time, I won! It wasn't a perfect run. I didn't have that much gold even (something over 6000). I was lucky with some +3 plate mail early on; and I immediately got a protect armor scroll. I built it up to -3. This seriously helped, because I got rattlesnaked down to 10 strength, and I was super lucky I found a restore strength down on level 10 or so. Then I found a +5 strength ring, and subsequently a slow digestion ring. Also; a vorpalize weapon scroll against wraiths, and several enchant weapons so my mace was +5,+3. Some polymorph wands helped, but I was able to defeat any creature in a pinch, though medusas were pretty dreadful if they confused me. I had many close calls. A bad moment when I drank a confusion potion on a low level and I forgot what some of my already identified potions and rings were. As a result, I accidentally drank some poison. Was that a bug? I've never seen that happen. Soooo frustrating falling into pit traps on the way up. And why were the easy monsters so much harder to kill on the way up? Anyway, I am so psyched!!!!

Congratulations!!!!!!

Sounds like you drank a potion of amnesia, which makes you forget what things are in your inventory :roll:

As far as the monsters being harder to kill, I just asked the same question over at Touch Arcade........just had a run where I managed to get the amulet, strength was 28, had beefed up my two-handed sword to +5+4, armor was up to +9 or so and rustproof. Got killed by a jabberwock on floor 24, even though I was able to kill them with ease farther down :oops:

Yep, that potion was Amnesia. Very rare, but you'll forget what *it* was when you drink it, as well as randomly forgetting stuff in your pack, and even forgetting where you have explored on the mini-map (everything beyond your immediate surroundings is erased on the map)! :twisted:

Once you have the amulet they constantly get harder as you progress through the levels - irrelevant of which direction your heading.

Potion of amnesia makes sense; who knew? Yes, it also caused me to forget that floor's map... I've never had one of those before, but my husband says he's gotten it several times. I loved it, by the way, when I used a wand of polymorph on a dragon and it turned it into...a dragon.
