This afternoon, Henry XV defeated Oree, claimed the Shirt of the Golden Eagle, returned to Attnam, and vanquished Petrus to become High Priest.
I can only assume that I was naturally good at training INT, because I was able to get it to 40+ just by reading books and scrolls. I was wielding a whip of thievery and an adamantine longsword that GC 1 so kindly bestowed upon me. I eventually made the whip phoenix feather, and both were enchanted to +14 by the time I won. I found 2 Holy bananas, both of which I ate for stats. The first one provided that satiation I needed to fight the Sumo wrestler a couple times and get myself the belt of levitation.
I dedicate this win to my brother, because I found the bones file of his best character ever on GC 11, which provided a much-needed amulet of ESP, and a ridiculous quantity of wands, scrolls, and other loot, including two 3-charge wands of cloning, 4 scrolls of charging, 2 scrolls of wishing, a helm of brilliance +8, and a valpurium 2-handed sword +14. This character had been killed by Sherry, but since the previous floor contained a bones file for one of my old characters, who had also been killed by Sherry, she wasn't there a second time.
I killed every unique baddy except for Ischaldrih and Sherry. The former because if he did spawn, I never saw him, and the latter because at the time I didn't feel like tempting fate, and wasn't yet as uber as I was when I took on Oree.
I must sadly admit that I did use artificial limbs, eventually turning all my limbs in golden eagle feather. (I did NOT use the cerumen trick. Swear to God. A natual INT of ~49 and a helm of brilliance +8 was all I needed.)
This was actually my first win of any sort, and only my 3rd character to kill Elpuri. (First 2 went through the portal, got killed.)
Ah, and to think I used to fear Rondol. Now I look forward to slaughtering Ur-Khan.
