I was playing around with LIVAN (which is definitely much easier than other versions simply because of the large terrains and better guaranteed loot. I was pretty stacked, think all armor and weapons being top level material above valpurium+8-9 except for a GEF cloak+9 and a GEF chameleon whip+9 (great for breaking the power curve).

I killed everyone in the vault, and the shops thanks to some archangels, and killed every named enemy and Elipuri up to Sherry, who I died to. It was quite ironic since my weapons of polymorphing and permanent haste were inspired by her, but that isn't what this post is about. It's about the worst

The most horifying parts were when I prayed to Legifer, exploding the rusted walls to the dwarven minefield, revealing tiles upon tiles of raw vapourized magic coating every direction.

By the time I died, the path from GC3's entrance to GC4's entrance had a least 4 magic mushroom corpses on each tile.
Speaking of my death, I finally found out why my game started to lag:
