Lost a good character today. Dual spears, one ruby, one mithril. 331 HP or so (armor of great health +5... kept expecting to get one-shotted by a named baddy walking around a corner). Guy took a point-blank Enner scream without batting an eyelash, then butchered him in two rounds of melee. Would have been a lot more powerful if I had ever found a SoCM... I mean really, I used 3 AoLS in this game, but didn't find a single cloak of resist until GC5, and never found any SoCM.
So I was cruising around the GC. Thought I had perma-telecontrol from an earlier encounter with blink dogs, didn't. Anyways, I waltz into GC6, fully aware that it's the zombie room, and plan on bee-lining to the exit, only deviating for exceptional gear. Survived two veteran kamikaze dwarves with no real damage. Spotted Xinroch... wasn't feeling confidant enough to take him on, so I teleported (this is how I discovered I didn't have control). Got out. It was close but not too bad.
I sighed in relief, and went on to explore GC7. After a while, I noticed that my box of wands was gone! Odd. I figured I'd just left it behind on an earlier level for some reason or another. I continued exploring, fought off a lot of nasty golems (two arcanite, a few others) and dark knights and orcs and so forth. Suddenly a bunch of my shit is vanishing! What's going on?! Now I'm teleporting everywhere! Holy crap, where did this dragon hide golem come from! And an orc officer AND a veteran dark knight, all at once! And my glove is gone (followed by my arm a few turns later)!
Yeah, it was quick from there. Got tore up fast, died, AoLS triggered, died again immediately. At first I wondered if my high HP had caused my namesake to spawn and visit unholy wrath upon me... but the marked lack of explosions made me think otherwise. Then I realized -- GC7? That's the mystic dark frog level. Fuck me! That should have been a cakewalk, if I'd been thinking right and paying attention to my status! I had sodm, and had left a telecontrol ring on a previous level somewhere.
Final score: 39292.
