Hello, I became Mortifer's champion, killed Attnam, Elpuri, Sherarax and Orlee. I left Attnam with Petrus' left nut, but nothing happened. How do I win?

I think if you cheat it glitches and won't end the game

Assuming you cheated... if you didn't ignore what I just said

You *should* have won just by taking Petrus' left nut out of Attnam. My experiments in wizmode tell me you don't even need to be Mort's champion to get that ending. However, since that's not happening, and you have killed Oree, you can try to get the high priest ending instead. This requires:

1. The Shirt of the Golden Eagle
2. Petrus' nut.
3. That you are Valpurus' champion.
4. Once you have the above three, all that's left is to sit on the throne that Petrus used to own.

Third part's likely going to be hardest since you became Mort's champion first, though if you're strong enough to kill Petrus it probably isn't going to be *terribly* hard to figure out a way to pull it off. BTW, if you succeed at this ending, you'll get a 4x multiplier on your score as opposed to the 2x multiplier you would have gotten with the Chaos ending.

I checked the source, and apparently you cannot achieve Chaos Ending if you are carrying GE Shirt with you.

Why would you want to anyway, if you can easily become the High Priest? (If you do, then just drop the GE Shirt, should work.)

BDR got it wrong about multipliers, it's 5x versus 3x, not 4x versus 2x. (Chaos is considered the third easiest ending, with death being the first one.)

About the GE shirt: That's interesting. I guess it's too lawful an artifact for Mort to ignore.

About the multiplier: Oops.

I got killed by Ischaldirch looking for books of Valpurus.
