gullwhacker: (Ascension)
[personal profile] gullwhacker
So, the yearly NetHack Tournament is over.

I managed to pull off one last ascension, in the end - Human Healer. They have possibly the most high-powered quest - Dragons everywhere, a somewhat dangerous nemesis, and then a quest reward that I see as one of the game's ultimate weapons.

This led to me killing dragons with a stick.

My most heavily armored ascender to date - I was hitting AC -32 by Astral. Found the right altar on the first try, pausing only to beat Death into the ground.

Healers may seem weak, but get them going, and you get someone like Dr. House, Black Jack, or Bleach's Captain Unohana. Don't mess with 'em.

So, I'm done NetHack for a while. Pulled off my goals in the tournament - an ascension of each alignment, and all four bonus challenges. I think, adding up the people who did as well as me or better, that I was in the top 5%. Not a bad month.

And now, all that's left are the last few classes, exams, a paper, and taking the train home for Christmas. Oh, and getting Greyhawk kickstarted...

Blackjack: The Surgeon with the hands of God.

Not many people remember the character anymore.

Never under estimate the healer, especially when angry. *cough*Phyllia from Tales of Destiny*cough*

Also, take a look at this post. If anything, the fanart is worth it: http://community.livejournal.com/talesoftheabyss/642162.html?view=5459058#t5459058

Congratulations on your multiple ascensions!

You realize that all other healers pale before Raine Sage, right XD?
