Tiny Plastic Brain Stem - DitR TT HCNP (Mongoose) 4/931

Post by Shadow Tiger » Fri Nov 11, 2011 2:31 am

Tiny Plastic Brain Stem (#1294392)

I'm going to be trying for my first 4 day HCNP. About half my perms are TT skills, and my play style heavily reflects that. Will be going into this with 24 skills HC permed, plus Olfaction, Vent Rage Gland and a few IotM skills.

Still getting used to a few of my more recent toys. Love Songs and Candy Hearts were acquired just before my last run, and the pantsrack is completely new as of today. I figure if I can't make my goal of 4 days in around 900 turns it's not for lack of shinies. Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Due to time constraints I didn't manage to ascend until 3 hours before rollover. I considered waiting, but with my work schedule that would mean a haphazardly played day 4 at best. Time was shorter than I like for a day 1 and I'm still shaking off the WotSF mentality I'd gotten into.

------------------------------

This log was created by the Ascension Log Visualizer 3.7.0.
The basic idea and the format of this parser have been borrowed from the AFH MafiaLog Parser by VladimirPootin and QuantumNightmare.

===Day 1===

[0] Ascension Start [0,0,0]
+> [0] Got shard of double-ice, shard of double-ice, shard of double-ice, unbearable light

[17-24] Haunted Pantry [25,9,16]
+> [17] Got little paper umbrella, razor-sharp can lid
o> Used 1 magicalness-in-a-can [0,2,0]
-> Turn [21] Rogue Program
I start out with the basic Turn 0 stuff, immediately noticing a dearth of MP because I didn't take the Vole sign. This will bite me in the ass half way through the day as I struggle for enough MP to cast Ode. This is also my first mariachi yellow ray as I picked up the pantsrack shortly before ascending today.

Looked under the Crimbo tree and found a shiny new peanut brittle shield. People thought me strange as I celebrated my gift, but I knew I would put it to good use.

Turn 2 I make my first spectacular mistake of the day. Equip the astral belt, adventure in the spooky forest. Can't be so bad right? Well I guess it can when the monster gets the jump and one-shots me. Tongue to the rescue, off comes the belt and I spend a few turns trying to get the coin and mosquito. Not enough mp to reliably run -combat buffs yet, my rogue program was being stingy with mp.

Also decided to unlock spookyraven early as I'm getting the lunchbox first.
[25] Haunted Billiards Room [0,0,0]
-> Turn [25] Li'l Xenomorph
Figure maybe I should work at opening the ballroom. Oh wait, I don't have a source of elemental damage yet. I'll come back when KFH gives me a spooky damage boost. (wait for it)
[26-27] A Barroom Brawl [10,5,5]
-> Turn [26] Fancypants Scarecrow
[28-43] Tavern Cellar [62,24,23]
+> [28] Got coconut shell
+> [30] Got bottle of gin, bottle of rum, bottle of rum
+> [33] Got bottle of tequila, bottle of tequila, bottle of tequila
+> [41] Got BRICKO ooze, little paper umbrella
+> [43] Got Typical Tavern swill, Typical Tavern swill, Typical Tavern swill
o> Used 1 oily paste (10 adventures gained) [23,18,20]
-> Turn [36] Pair of Stomping Boots
-> Turn [43] Obtuse Angel
=> Level 4 (Turn 40)! (13/9/8)
[44] A Barroom Brawl [3,0,2]
-> Turn [44] Pair of Stomping Boots
Decided to farm some base booze while trying to get a beer lense. I want at least one so I can use a 4-d camera on a faxed lobsterfrogman later. Summoned BRICKOs so I could make pants, but made the mistake of summoning a candy heart later. This wasn't bad in it'self, it simply meant I had to struggle for that last BRICKO to make the pants.

Turns out the BRICKO pants do not give a lvl 20 volley like I thought though, that's the studded leather boxer shorts you can buy in town. Argh! Fortunately I could still use them as they were the highest power pants I can get this early, which made kneebutting one-shot most critters.

Also arrowed the goblin in an attempt at more beer lenses (extra camera or boxen if I got lucky), then realized I was level 4 with no spleen items yet.
[45] Spooky Forest [0,0,0]
+> [45] Got Spooky Temple map
[46] Haunted Billiards Room [0,0,0]
&> 1 / 1 free retreats
Not sure why I went back to the spooky forest here except as a 'why not see' moment. I luck out and get the map! Then I see I have spooky damage, and feeling all superior I head back to the billiards room to teach that chalk wraith a lesson. For some reason it doesn't register until I'm in the fight that the chalk wraith is spooky aligned as well as physical immune. I made like brave Sir Robin and ran away.
[47-49] The Domed City of Grimacia [13,1,1]
+> [49] Got ten-leaf clover, ten-leaf clover
o> Ate 1 elven hardtack (8 adventures gained) [23,24,30]
[50-51] Lemon Party [0,0,0]
[52-53] The Domed City of Grimacia [9,2,4]
[54-65] The Domed City of Ronaldus [46,10,16]
+> [64] Got beer lens
o> Used 2 indescribably horrible paste (12 adventures gained) [41,39,41]
-> Turn [65] Li'l Xenomorph
[66-67] Map to Safety Shelter Grimace Prime [0,0,0]
[68-69] Map to Safety Shelter Ronald Prime [0,0,0]
[70-76] Outskirts of The Knob [16,2,5]
+> [70] Got Knob Goblin firecracker
#> [76] Semirare: Lunchboxing
-> Turn [75] Rogue Program
[77-89] The Domed City of Grimacia [32,16,8]
+> [83] Got Game Grid token
+> [87] Got white candy heart
o> Ate 2 elven hardtack (16 adventures gained) [57,49,50]
o> Ate 1 ultrafondue (15 adventures gained) [19,17,18]
-> Turn [80] Fancypants Scarecrow
-> Turn [82] Rogue Program
-> Turn [87] Pair of Stomping Boots
-> Turn [88] Rogue Program
-> Turn [89] Fancypants Scarecrow
=> Level 5 (Turn 86)! (20/14/15)
Ah yes, the great Grimacite Quest gamble. I've been considering this as an in-run option for a while now. At first I didn't see any map drops and considered giving up the idea. Figuring I'd give it one more turn a map dropped, then another. The fourth was slightly more stubborn, but not horrificly so.

Took a brief respite to deal with the outskirts and get my lunchbox, which gave me the two coffees I was hoping for. It was also this time I found myself out of adventures and nearly panicked. Pausing to take a look at my situation I wasn't sure I was going to make it to level 6 at all today, let alone get a hell ramen soon enough to eat. Biting the bullet I adjusted my meal plan and scarfed 2 elven hardtacks.

Pressing on I used my second transponder and escorted the spooky little alien girl to safety. I was pretty stoked at this point, thinking I may manage my day 1 liver with the turn gen from Generators. At this point my max MP was still around 33, not nearly enough for Ode.
[90-92] Outskirts of The Knob [20,9,7]
+> [91] Got chef's hat, green candy heart
+> [92] Got Knob Goblin encryption key
[93-96] Pre-Cyrpt Cemetary [20,11,9]
+> [95] Got grave robbing shovel
Went back to snag the encryption key. 11 turns in all, not too bad. Snagged the shovel to unlock Fernswarthys partly out of habit and partly with the idea of getting a brain.
[97-99] Fun House [19,8,9]
+> [97] Got bottle of whiskey
+> [98] Got bottle of rum
+> [99] Got box, disease
[100] Mix 1 Typical Tavern swill + 1 coconut shell [0,0,0]
[101-112] Fun House [78,33,33]
+> [102] Got box
+> [107] Got bottle of vodka
+> [108] Got Game Grid token
o> Drank 2 Wrecked Generator (68 adventures gained) [62,53,55]
o> Drank 1 elven squeeze (8 adventures gained) [27,26,28]
o> Drank 1 thermos full of Knob coffee (6 adventures gained) [6,6,5]
-> Turn [107] Rogue Program
Base booze, box, hunt for a hat to get the +25 max MP tea party buff. Mixed a swill when my turn count was low again just to be sure I'd have it. Turns out I managed to get the hat, starfish badly for MP and gain around 85 turns from drinking. This also put me fairly close to level 6.
[113-122] Cobb's Knob Harem [95,35,42]
+> [116] Got Knob Goblin harem pants
+> [120] Got Knob Goblin harem veil
+> [122] Got Knob Goblin perfume
-> Turn [113] Fancypants Scarecrow
[123-128] Muscle Vacation [30,0,0]
+> [128] Got Cobb's Knob lab key
[129] Cobb's Knob Treasury [0,0,0]
[130-132] Battlefield (No Uniform) [72,0,50]
-> Turn [132] Rogue Program
=> Level 6 (Turn 132)! (29/21/22)
Started shoring way late because I nearly forgot to. I want to have it done earlyish day 2 so I can YR a hippy. Also picked up the harem outfit and sleaze my way into more meat. Hit the battlefield to power my way to level 6. At this point I was looking at around 75 adventures to clear the friars and get my liver.

Unfortunately I was also looking at about 35 minutes until rollover. This was the cause of a lot of hectic decisions and burning of resources I wouldn't have done had I started earlier in the day. About this time I started using shield+kneebutt as my primary attack. I should have gone back to unarmed fighting and stuck with kneebutt. Shieldbutt was adding 4-8 dmg where kneebutt was adding 15-24.
[133] Dark Neck of the Woods [9,7,3]
+> [133] Got wussiness potion
[134-139] Dark Elbow of the Woods [39,16,20]
-> Turn [139] Fancypants Scarecrow
[140-148] Dark Neck of the Woods [60,28,23]
+> [143] Got ruby W
*> [140] Started hunting Hellion
[149-158] Dark Heart of the Woods [69,38,26]
-> Turn [150] Rogue Program
-> Turn [158] Fancypants Scarecrow
[159] Dark Neck of the Woods [8,4,5]
-> Turn [159] Rogue Program
[160-161] Dark Heart of the Woods [0,0,0]
+> [161] Got box of birthday candles
[162-170] Dark Elbow of the Woods [68,31,36]
+> [170] Got eldritch butterknife
[171-175] Dark Neck of the Woods [28,15,20]
+> [175] Got dodecagram
-> Turn [171] Fancypants Scarecrow
Managed to olfact a hellion, but they were pretty stingy with the drops. I only managed to get 3 when my meal plan calls for 5 more over days 2-4. Ah well I'm sure I'll make do. I did get the W, wussiness potion and enough hot wings for later. This is also where I used up all but a handful of my finger cuffs fighting hellions. MP was a huge issue and was buying from doc Galactic.

Did I menton I was rushed at the time? It's unfortunate I can't make the double ice cap day 1.

Unfortunately this took me 42 turns, leaving 24 turns to get liver. And 10 minutes until rollover.
[176-178] Hey Deze Arena [5,6,7]
+> [178] Got bus pass
[179] Pandamonium Slums [0,0,0]
[180-192] Hey Deze Arena [82,30,28]
+> [183] Got bus pass
+> [187] Got Azazel's unicorn
+> [188] Got bus pass
+> [191] Got bus pass
+> [192] Got bus pass
17 turns for the first half, leaving 7 turns and less than 5 mins until rollover. I was also down to no recovery items, just about no meat and the finger cuffs were long gone. I figured it was going to take a miracle to get my liver at this point, but I persisted.
[193-196] Belilafs Comedy Club [37,26,23]
+> [194] Got hilarious comedy prop
+> [195] Got imp air
o> Drank 1 bucket of wine (19 adventures gained) [36,26,25]

Turn rundown finished!
Aaaaaaaand no, not going to happen. I manage to score my first imp ale, beat Carbunkle by the skin of my teeth then get soundly beaten by Victor. About this time I called it quits with a minute left, lamenting that my max MP was only 45 and I was going to guzzle my bucket of wine odeless.

Overall I think this was a pretty good day 1 for me. Not my best by far, but it's the closest I've come to day 1 liver and I think I'd have done it had I not been so rushed.

What are you buying in-run that makes it worth it to be a TT? I think it would have made your life easier to ascend as an AT so you can buy moxious madrigal and MMM in-run. The generators quest is also much better as a moxie class since scaling monsters' give stats based on your moxie.

I see you have master of the surprising fist and kung fu hustler. Those skills are particularly good as a muscle class... have you tried / considered fighting empty handed? +20 to hit basically offsets the ML from astral belt, and you get a pretty massive init, damage and +item boost. I see you're currently empty-handed so maybe you did, but you mention the peanut brittle shield so I'm not sure.

Why did you spend turns in the sleazy back alley? Theer's no reason to go there at all as a muscle class unless your telescope tells you you need a spider web... but you got the spider web on turn 8 and spent 2 more turns there afterwards. You shouldn't do the artist quest in non-fist, non-mox runs (and you generally don't do it in mox runs either, but it's easier tu justify). If you don't have a full telescope, you backfarm the spider web when you hit that monster in the tower. If you're strapped for cash... did you forget to autosell your pork gems at the start of the run? As an HC player you shouldn't be strapped for cash early on.

Are you using ben-gal balm? It could actually save you money on healing if it helps you hit and kill faster.

I was fighting empty handed up to the point where I escorted the spooky girl for the generator quest. What I should have done was go back to being unarmed. That's the main reason I went with TT this run, higher muscle making it possible to kneebutt with higher ML going. Muscle +20 +20 with a 40% stun is pretty nice early on. LTS would be +30 to hit and 3x damage, but I don't have those skills perm'd yet.

As for AT, I actually tried that on my previous disastrously failed 4 day attempt. The ability to buy mmjs doesn't help day one though, which is when I struggle the most with mp. My biggest problem last run was that I had to keep the ML much lower because of trouble in combat. I could have tried again as an AT as I originally planned, but decided I wanted to play my favorite class instead.

Not really going to buy any skills in run except leatherback and headbutt for a little bit of boost in combat. The karma from this run and the next are going to be banked so I can perm all the gnome skills at once. Then I'm finishing out the +item passives. I'm a sucker for butt-combos, and they can be used together when I might otherwise lose a fight.

Thinking it over last night I realized I made a number of fundamental mistakes in my haste. If I had been able to take my time I would have been more careful, and remembered to use ben-gal and hairspray more often than I did. I also would have remembered wereseal blood, which I completely forgot existed. I easily spent 3k meat on MP at Galactics of all places in the last 20 minutes before rollover, simply because I couldn't remember the best place for mp at that point. Level 6, no white citadel (used to open in run), no mmj, no black market. It was down to soda water or Doc as far as I can remember, and I simply didn't have time to look it up. Starfishing would have saved me tons on meat, but I didn't have a seal tooth to delay with, or again I didn't have time.

I'm convinced that if I'd had another hour to spare I would have been calm about everything after the moons quest, and I've have gotten my liver day one. I may even have managed to get the mp to cast ode again for my night cap.

The back alley trip was to get my pail so I could crank ML higher day 2 (belt + MCD + tea party) which will be easier with the ice-cap.

Basically I don't have any telescope pieces yet. I've been ascending pretty continually since February except for a pause for some Hobopolis runs then the Haunted House. Planning to get my first piece just before Crimbo though. Last run I had to back farm 3 tower items, including black pepper.

Unhappy as I am with the fumbling disaster at the end of day 1, I believe I'm still on track to potentially hit 4 days. At least I if I can find a substitute for 2 Hell Ramens. Not an insurmountable problem.

Had a pretty good day 2. Nothing spectacular, but nothing horrible either. Logged in to find I got 11 bonus adventures, a +11 myst earring and 11 ridiculous cocktails (shc quality with ode). After agonizing over it a bit folks let me know it's not that spectacular an advantage. I also figure it put me right where I'd be if I had made day 1 liver, so I tweaked my plan and drank the drinks.

Managed to make most of my modest day 2 goals. I think I'm going a bit slower than I can be, but I'm also getting back into the groove of playing a muscle class with more ML. Fought unarmed with no problem until I got around to opening the ballroom around lvl 7. Also had times where I forgot to spend all my mp for a turn or two, which is a nice change from never having any. Getting a seal tooth for starfishing helped too. Decided to bank 100 turns so I can YR a miner first thing.

Day 2 Goals -
[*] Get Liver
[*] Get Digital Key
[*] Daily Dungeon
[*] Fax/Arrow/4-d Camera 5 Lobersterfrogmen
[ ] Clear Crypt - Cleared Nook/Cranny
[*] Make Chef
[*] Open Island
[*] YR Hippy Jeweler
[*] Unlock Temple
[*] Set Ballroom Song
[*] Open Gallery

Day 3 Goals -
[ ] Yellow Ray Miner
[ ] Get 2-3 Goat Milks
[ ] Clear Crypt
[ ] Make Bonerdragon Necklace
[ ] Get Pirate Outfit
[ ] Open Orc Chasm
[ ] Arrow ASCII semi rare
[ ] Get Pirate Fledges
[ ] Farm 1 Beer lens for camera (brigands)

Will post the day 2 log with notes in a bit.

This is my first posted log and I'm not sure how well I'm annotating it, any advice would be appreciated.

I started the day off unarmed to make use of the bonuses from KFH, as well as being able to kill more efficiently with kneebutt than shieldbutt at this point. Unfortunately I was starting from nothing again, so I don't think I had the +20% items while finishing the liver quest. About the time I opened up the bedroom I switched back to a weapon + shield because there was no way I could hit even after turning ML down to 0. Spell slinging is on my list in a few more runs.

Finished getting liver, with a quick side trip for prostitution and some starfishing while hunting wet stew ingredients. 11 turns and I had it. With more careful play and decent RNG I'm sure I can get it on day 1 next time. Also put my double ice cap on first thing, oh mp regen how I love thee!

Hello again my nemesis the chalk wraith. I have an imp ring now, taste fiery death! MWAHAHAHAHAAHH!!!!

Ok so I was a bit gleeful to get revenge on the annoyingly physical/spooky immune chalk wraith. It was therapeutic!
[220-221] 8-Bit Realm [16,7,6]
+> [221] Got BRICKO ooze, little paper umbrella, magical ice cubes
o> Used 1 oily paste (8 adventures gained) [20,22,18]
Figured I would get started on my digital key, and found a blooper my first turn. What luck, all I need to do is ... stare at my 39 mp and complete lack of soda water or other mp restoratives. Got my three pixels and then used my first stomp of the day on a bricko ooze.

+> [283] Got barrel of gunpowder
-> Turn [283] Pair of Stomping Boots
While forcing my faxed copies to the conservatory I managed to find the Baron. I like having the monacle for the lvl 10-12 quests.
[284-285] Guano Junction [11,5,10]
Starfishing while trying for a baseball and sonar.

o> Ate 2 Hell ramen (51 adventures gained) [51,48,50]
o> Ate 1 tasty tart (6 adventures gained) [7,5,5]
When I saw I wasn't going to finish the Crypt in a timely manner, but I had a smart skull I clovered the tower and make a chef. That should save me 6-10 turns on cooking. Not great, but I'll take it. I considered clovering for sonars, but decided against it.
[288-295] Defiled Cranny [140,62,60]
+> [289] Got Game Grid token
[296] Fernswarthy's Ruins [10,3,4]
-> Turn [296] Fancypants Scarecrow

[298-299] Tavern Cellar [25,7,14]

Two down, two to go. I was running above my comfortable limit for ML (50) so I was spacing things out.
[312-314] Moxie Vacation [0,0,0]
+> [314] Got barbed-wire fence
-> Turn [314] Rogue Program
[315] Hippy Camp [10,2,6]

}> [315] Disintegrated dirty hippy jewelry maker
[316-319] Haunted Conservatory [37,11,23]
+> [319] Got barrel of gunpowder
Finally got around to yellow raying a hippy. Got lucky as my first one was a jeweler which I wanted for the hemp string. That will let me make a bonerdragon necklace which will be a nice init boost. Also used the trick of adventuring in the tavern cellar and shoring to delay my faxed lfm until I could put it in the conservatory. This turned out to be enough to unlock the gallery.
[320-329] Haunted Bedroom [152,74,79]
+> [325] Got Lord Spookyraven's spectacles
-> Turn [327] Fancypants Scarecrow
Opening the bedroom early is still a challenge as I don't have enough buffs. If I had managed to get 5 different candy hearts I could have managed sooner. Sadly I kept getting duplicates.
[330-332] Haunted Ballroom [37,20,16]
o> Drank 1 ridiculous cocktail (14 adventures gained) [12,11,11]
o> Drank 1 shot of orange schnapps (3 adventures gained) [5,0,0]
-> Turn [332] Rogue Program
&> 1 / 1 free retreats
=> Level 8 (Turn 332)! (53/38/38)
Managed to unlock the ballroom with my last 2 turns of wereseal blood. Got the song set on the first turn then decided to test my luck and fight some tougher monsters. A bit tougher than I liked so I moved on.
[333] Haunted Conservatory [0,0,0]
-> Turn [333] Fancypants Scarecrow
[334-335] Guano Junction [12,7,7]
[336-340] Batrat and Ratbat Burrow [39,14,19]
+> [338] Got sonar-in-a-biscuit, yellow candy heart
[341-342] Guano Junction [14,5,6]
+> [341] Got loose teeth
[343] Beanbat Chamber [4,7,3]
+> [343] Got enchanted bean
o> Drank 1 bucket of wine (29 adventures gained) [24,10,21]
Trying to get sonars and a baseball using the spangly pantsrack. Ultimately I fought two screaming bats, got one sonar, broken skull, and the enchanted bean but no baseball. Also need to open the last barricade. Should have clovered it. On the bright side I was using normal attack, so it wasn't a complete waste of turns as I regen'd mp for buffs.

Started the day out shield butting with a hilarious comedy prop in my main hand. Switched back to unarmed once I started clearing out the rest of the crypt. With wereseal blood, ben-gal balm and hair spray I stayed unarmed for the rest of the day.

===Day 3===
Adventure count at day start: 143
Current meat: 349

[344] Cobb's Knob Treasury [0,0,0]
+> [344] Got bucket of wine, unbearable light
-> Turn [344] Rogue Program
Early day stuff, get the enchanted bean while hoping for a sonar. Prostitute myself for meat, tome summons I know I'll need. At this point I haven't completed most of the big reward quests yet. I have about 900 meat after hitting the treasury. By days end I'll have more than enough meat even without selling the dictionary.
[345] Itznotyerzitz Mine [13,3,7]
+> [345] Got 7-Foot Dwarven mattock, miner's helmet, miner's pants
}> [345] Disintegrated 7-Foot Dwarf
[346-354] Itznotyerzitz Mine (in Disguise) [0,0,0]
-> Turn [354] Fancypants Scarecrow
10 turns total for the mine with no falling rocks. I'm pretty pleased with this. Also considering Accidental Miner not too far down the road as it would be a guaranteed 5 turns saved per run, more if I start mining day 2.
[355-369] Pirate Cove [170,63,49]
+> [358] Got stuffed shoulder parrot
+> [361] Got swashbuckling pants
+> [362] Got Game Grid token
+> [369] Got eyepatch
-> Turn [355] Rogue Program
-> Turn [362] Fancypants Scarecrow
Pirate outfit, starfishing, getting tokens and getting my daily casts in.
[370-378] Goatlet [91,55,38]
+> [371] Got glass of goat's milk, goat cheese
+> [374] Got glass of goat's milk, goat cheese
+> [375] Got goat cheese
+> [376] Got goat cheese
+> [377] Got goat cheese
+> [378] Got goat cheese
*> [374] Started hunting dairy goat
-> Turn [371] Rogue Program
-> Turn [372] Pair of Stomping Boots
-> Turn [375] Fancypants Scarecrow
&> 1 / 1 free retreats
My timing on starting areas I need to use olfaction is still off. Didn't have the mp to olfact the first few turns so I relied on runaways. Also used the friars buff for food.
[379] Ninja Snowmen [15,8,8]
+> [379] Got frigid ninja stars
I'm here, I have a spanglypantsrack, why not since every snowman can drop the tower item. Huzzah!
[380] Goatlet [18,4,4]
+> [380] Got glass of goat's milk, goat cheese
One extra glass so I can squeeze in an extra 5 turns of milk, as well as cheese for reagent pasta. This will be my day 4 replacement for the hellion cube that didn't drop.
[381] Guano Junction [8,1,3]
+> [381] Got baseball, sonar-in-a-biscuit
^_^
[382-386] Boss Bat's Lair [48,24,30]
+> [386] Got Boss Bat bandana
[387] Throne Room [39,20,24]
+> [387] Got Cape of the Goblin King, coconut shell, little paper umbrella
Started finishing quests and the meat starts pouring in. I think I went from 800ish meat to 8000ish in 3 turns.
[388-400] Haunted Gallery [2036,261,262]
+> [398] Got broken sword
-> Turn [399] Pair of Stomping Boots
=> Level 9 (Turn 399)! (70/44/44)
[401-406] Daily Dungeon [7,2,3]
o> Drank 3 ridiculous cocktail (42 adventures gained) [38,33,33]
[407-415] Haunted Gallery [1350,46,37]
+> [408] Got BRICKO ooze
+> [412] Got Game Grid token
o> Used 1 beastly paste (10 adventures gained) [25,19,20]
o> Used 1 oily paste (9 adventures gained) [26,19,21]
-> Turn [408] Rogue Program
-> Turn [412] Fancypants Scarecrow
-> Turn [415] Obtuse Angel
At this point I'm at the bottom of level 8, have finished all the quests and have the dictionary for the orc chasm. My next semi-rare is in 70ish turns and I want to hit lvl 9 so I can get the ASCII then arrow it. Time to power level! Took a pause to cast ode, drink some of my booze then do the daily dungeon while my mp regens.
[416] Orc Chasm [19,8,5]
#> [416] Semirare: Bad ASCII Art
+> [416] Got 30669 scroll, 33398 scroll, 334 scroll, 334 scroll
-> Turn [416] Fancypants Scarecrow
[417-422] Haunted Gallery [751,41,42]
-> Turn [421] Rogue Program
-> Turn [422] Fancypants Scarecrow
=> Level 10 (Turn 421)! (86/45/45)
Arrowed the ASCII then decided on some judicious power leveling to hit level 10. I've been running behind on hitting my level goals so it was time to kick it into gear. Adding the shower buff helped, as I was getting an average of 145 mainstat a turn at the Gallery.
[423-429] Fantasy Airship [129,61,45]
+> [423] Got metallic A
+> [424] Got photoprotoneutron torpedo
o> Ate 1 Hell ramen (30 adventures gained) [29,26,27]
o> Ate 1 fortune cookie (2 adventures gained) [0,0,0]
o> Ate 2 pumpkin pie (38 adventures gained) [35,39,22]
o> Ate 2 tasty tart (13 adventures gained) [12,10,11]
-> Turn [426] Rogue Program
-> Turn [428] Pair of Stomping Boots
&> 1 / 1 free retreats
[430-431] A Barroom Brawl [9,6,7]
+> [430] Got bottle of whiskey, bottle of whiskey
+> [431] Got coconut shell, little paper umbrella, little paper umbrella
-> Turn [430] Rogue Program
&> 2 / 2 free retreats
[432-433] Fantasy Airship [12,11,8]
+> [432] Got Tissue Paper Immateria
+> [433] Got Game Grid token
[434-437] A Barroom Brawl [31,20,10]
#> [436] Semirare: Bad ASCII Art
+> [436] Got 30669 scroll, 33398 scroll, 334 scroll, 334 scroll
+> [436] Got Game Grid token
+> [437] Got beer lens
*> [434] Started hunting unemployed knob goblin
-> Turn [437] Fancypants Scarecrow
[438-439] Fun House [12,9,5]
+> [439] Got box, disease, lavender candy heart
Brief pause as I realise my fax/arrow plan for day 4 calls for a quantum mechanic. I'm attempting to avoid opening the DoD, and saved the fax for later so I could avoid getting hit and infected with teleportitus. It also gave me a buffer to fax another lfm day 4 if I screwed up and lost to one. The upshot of this is that I don't have a fax for the brigands, and I only got one beer lense so far.

Crossing my fingers I dove into the barroom in search of a goblin. Turns out I spent 7 turns to get the darn thing, plus another to farm the box I'd thought I already had. Doesn't the nuns trick save about 9 turns? *sigh*
[440] Fantasy Airship [23,8,3]
-> Turn [440] Rogue Program
[441] A Barroom Brawl [3,2,5]
-> Turn [441] Fancypants Scarecrow
Frakking misclicks. Actually I thought I still had the goblin olfacted so figured maybe I'd try for a bartender. Not much help at this point, but while I'm here kind of thing. It's only after I got into the fight I realized that I had just sgee'd away On the Trail so I could olfact a quiet healer instead.
[442-461] Fantasy Airship [294,139,131]
+> [443] Got Tin Foil Immateria
+> [449] Got Gauze Immateria
#> [454] Semirare: Bad ASCII Art
+> [454] Got 30669 scroll, 33398 scroll, 334 scroll, 334 scroll
+> [457] Got Plastic Wrap Immateria
*> [451] Started hunting Quiet Healer
-> Turn [458] Pair of Stomping Boots
41 turns for the airship. Not my best, but far better than the mid 50's of my last two runs. Yay!
[462-475] Defiled Niche [195,93,90]
+> [464] Got Game Grid token
#> [474] Semirare: Bad ASCII Art
+> [474] Got 30669 scroll, 33398 scroll, 334 scroll, 334 scroll
o> Used 1 ectoplasmic paste (5 adventures gained) [21,18,22]
*> [466] Started hunting dirty old lihc
-> Turn [462] Rogue Program
-> Turn [470] Fancypants Scarecrow
From here on out I start fighting unarmed again, using kneebut to push my muscle high enough to hit. My strategy for the most part was to kneebut and either take the first hit, or hit it again as the undead clutche their gonads. Yes, even the lihcs.
[476-489] Defiled Alcove [232,100,121]
+> [479] Got loose teeth
+> [485] Got loose teeth
[490] Haert of the Cyrpt [76,28,29]
+> [490] Got chest of the Bonerdagon, skull of the Bonerdagon, vertebra of the Bonerdagon
o> Used 1 chest of the Bonerdagon [165,150,150]
Even the bonerdagon has gonads. Mwahahahaha!!!
[491-496] Fantasy Airship [79,39,45]
+> [496] Got S.O.C.K.
[497] Giant's Castle [24,13,13]
o> Drank 1 ridiculous cocktail (14 adventures gained) [13,11,11]
o> Drank 1 tropical swill (14 adventures gained) [29,2,2]
[498-510] Orc Chasm [239,82,89]

*> [506] Started hunting rampaging adding machine
-> Turn [498] Pair of Stomping Boots
-> Turn [502] Fancypants Scarecrow
&> 1 / 1 free retreats
I spend a turn in the castle to see how bad it is. I win, but ouch. Oh hey, how about the chasm? I decided to get started burning delay for the fax, later cursing both my inability to time my faxes to land here and the fact I completely forgot my plan to fax/olfact the adding machine until I had all my scrolls.
[511-544] Barrrney's Barrr [576,181,310]

[547] The Infiltrationist [0,0,0]
[549] Barrrney's Barrr [0,0,0]
-> Turn [549] Fancypants Scarecrow
Pirate Insults. We hates them precious!!! I think it took me 15 turns to get the 7th insult, with the 8th hitting 2 later. I've been told people like to do strange mystical rituals where they play beer pong with only 6 or 7 insults known. Those people are crazy I say! (Also I'm too lazy at this point to track every insult manually)
[550-564] F'c'le [434,115,64]
+> [558] Got mizzenmast mop
+> [560] Got barrrnacle
+> [561] Got ball polish
+> [563] Got rigging shampoo
*> [563] Started hunting cleanly pirate
-> Turn [553] Jumpsuited Hound Dog
-> Turn [557] Fancypants Scarecrow
Didn't use my hound dog here because it has no weight to it. I've been using the spanglerack and rogue program any time I don't need paste or runaways, so the hound only gave me +3% non-combats and about half the item find. Not a good enough tradeoff for me.

Considered using my 3rd tome summon for a crystal skull here, then decided to just tough it out. After one fake phone number the chattering pirate didn't show her face again.
[565-587] Giant's Castle [619,853,132]
+> [565] Got plot hole
+> [569] Got thin black candle
+> [571] Got heavy D, original G
+> [572] Got furry fur
+> [573] Got giant needle
+> [578] Got awful poetry journal
+> [580] Got thin black candle
o> Drank 3 astral pilsner (36 adventures gained) [25,43,25]
*> [578] Started hunting Goth Giant
=> Level 11 (Turn 573)! (104/58/59)
Ah level 11. At this point I know I'm right where I want to be. I down the first three pilsners and pause to consider the rest of my day.
[588-589] Black Forest [42,16,26]
+> [588] Got broken wings
[590] Giant's Castle [30,7,6]
[591-592] Black Forest [27,59,8]
[593] Giant's Castle [0,0,0]
#> [593] Semirare: All The Rave
[594-598] Fantasy Airship [97,44,29]
Ran out of sgees, came back in search of one more so I could olfact one of the black forest critters. I forget which one, probably the widow so I could get the damn basket. No such luck.
[599-605] Black Forest [135,45,60]
+> [599] Got Black No. 2
+> [602] Got sunken eyes
[606-608] Hole in the Sky [69,28,34]
[609-611] Muscle Vacation [0,0,0]
[612] Poop Deck [17,10,12]
[613] photocopied monster [32,14,8]
#> [613] Semirare: Knob Goblin Elite Guard Captain
+> [613] Got Knob Goblin elite helm, Knob Goblin elite pants, Knob Goblin elite polearm
After thinking long and hard about it I decide to see what ascension relevant monsters faxbot has. When I spot the kge I realize I didn't hit the barracks at all. So what the heck, I fax one in and open the shop. Only after sleeping on it do I think it might have been better to have fax'd a war hippy then YR'd it.
[615-617] Haunted Ballroom [41,12,19]
3 turns to unlock the basement.
[618] Poop Deck [0,0,0]
[619-625] Belowdecks [199,79,81]
+> [625] Got snakehead charrrm, snakehead charrrm
*> [624] Started hunting gaudy pirate
7 turns to unlock the Palindrome.
[626] Desert (Unhydrated) [0,0,0]
1 turn. One. Freaking. Turn. WOO!
[627-645] Hidden Temple [167,150,250]
+> [645] Got ten-leaf clover
19 turns to make it through the temple, not too shabby.

I spent some time debating how to do the lvl 11 quests. By this point my friars buff was gone, the pool table buffs had all been used, and I had no runaways left. Spookyraven will wait until I can use the friars buff, and maybe a pool buff as well. The Hidden City will wait as well, so that I can potentially time my arrow'd monster to land on those turns as well as using runaways.

I'll do the desert quest and the Palindrome today, so that I don't have as much left on day 4. Sunday is a work day for me so I need to get my turns played before bed or early in the day.
[646] Oasis in the Desert [0,0,0]
[647] Desert (Ultrahydrated) [0,0,0]
[648-650] Oasis in the Desert [41,22,24]
+> [649] Got stone rose
+> [650] Got drum machine
[651-657] Desert (Ultrahydrated) [124,61,61]
+> [653] Got bronzed locust
[658-661] Oasis in the Desert [26,11,12]
+> [659] Got worm-riding manual page 1
+> [660] Got worm-riding manual page 2
+> [661] Got worm-riding manual pages 3-15
[662] Desert (Ultrahydrated) [0,0,0]
+> [662] Got worm-riding hooks
I clover the oasis, then head in. My luck continues to be extrordinary as I do the quest in 17 turns. Got my drum on the first Blur.

8 turns in the Oasis, 9 in the Desert (ultrahydrated).
[663-677] Palindome [493,368,491]
+> [663] Got hard rock candy
+> [664] Got photograph of God
+> [665] Got hard-boiled ostrich egg
+> [668] Got bottle of gin
+> [671] Got ketchup hound, stunt nuts
o> Used 1 hot wad (1 adventures gained) [29,9,19]
*> [671] Started hunting Bob Racecar
First three turns in the Palindrom were the candy, photograph and egg. First Bob Racecar I see dropped the ketchup hound and the stunt nuts. All in all I found Dr. Awkward in 19 turns.
[678] Cobb's Knob Laboratory [0,0,0]
+> [678] Got potion of the litterbox
o> Drank 1 bucket of wine (29 adventures gained) [13,47,24]
Found Mr. Alarm my first turn in the Laboratory. Normally I manage to farm the stunt nut stew before this, but it just wasn't happeng so I waited for the increased drop rates. I may save this for right after the filth worms, when my item buffs with be highest. I'll also use my runaways there as well. Hopefully I won't use them all though.

Turn rundown finished!

With my planned turn gen I should have over 300 turns to burn on day 4. My current goals are pretty straightforward as well.

Finish up Spookyraven Basement and prepare Lord Spookyraven for flyering.
Farm a bird rib and lion oil, make the wet stunt nut stew. Dr. Awkward ready for flyering.
Level up to 12 and grab flyers, start flyering everything.

I'm not sure if I'm going to powerlevel to 12 by way of the louvre, or if I'm going to see how well I do finishing the lvl 11 quest prep. I have 7 clovers due to incredible luck with a flyer'd ascii and plenty of drops while hunting the pr0n and adding machine. One I intend to use for chewing gum, one I want to save for the tower key if I can. The rest are for getting me my level goals.

Once I hit 12 it's all gravy. I'm not going to manage the nuns trick this time, but those extra turns spent in the war will get me stats I need anyway. It will also give me a chance to snag more war loot. My biggest concern is getting screwed over in the tower. Last run I had to farm 4 items, including the black pepper and the g-string.

Missing Tower Items: Adder Bladder, Black Pepper, G-String, Meleegra Pills, NG (need the N)

I also plan to fax/arrow a quantum mechanic on day 4. I've considered I may have to open the DoD instead, but it's coming to the point I need to make that decision so I can get 4 boxes by the end of the war. Fingers crossed on having enough potions to id.

Day 4 food is Pumpkin Pie, Grue Egg Omlette, fettucini Inconnu and 2 fortune cookies. Booze will be 4 advanced cocktails and 3 pilsners, though I intend to drink only 3 AC coctails until I find that drunkenness potion. Spleen is 3 pastes and 3 wads, timed so the stat bonus from the wads hits during the gremlins or the war. I'll be getting 10 turns from milk as well as the boost from ode. That should give me around 230 turns plus the 50 I have banked before rollover.

Just finished up my run and need to rush off to work, so I'll get the day 4 log posted late tonight. I managed to get some incredible luck in the level 11 quests. Unfortunately I had a 25 turn stint in the gallery trying to hit 13, the louvre was being stingy and I only had 1 clover to burn. Beat the sorceress with 2 turns left, 10 drunkeness and 6 spleen free.

Tower items used: spider web, powdered organs, NG (5 turns backfarming N), bronzed locust, can lid, fence

It's been a hell of a ride these past couple of days as I agonized over turns. There's places I can improve, and mistakes I'd made. Like forgetting to make sure I had 3 black candles before buffing for the nuns. And finding out after the nuns were done I'd forgotten to do the tea party buff.

My biggest concern is how to level faster while doing the quests. I probably should have had the bricko pants on the scarecrow for stats during the war, rather than the spangly pants to get more drops and save some health with blocking. Turns out I barely used any of the 40 garters I'd farmed.

Congrats on the 4/931! :thumbs:

That's actually faster than my best HCNP :shock:

P.S. You're thinking of the studded boxers I think.

Wow, and I was annoyed it turned about 20-30 turns slower than I thought it was going to be. :D
As for the pants, studded boxers are x4 volley but they're capped at 5lb so it's a 20 lb volley. The BRICKO pants are x1.5 volley but capped at 22 lb, for a 33 lb volley as well as a 44 lb lep with potato stuff too.

I'm already planning a 2nd run for a low 800s PM run. Going to push my limits and see how fast I can really go.

I had forgotten to get a mushroom field on day 2, probably because I didn't have any meat to buy one. So I planted mushrooms day 3 and had my Grue Egg Omlette day 4. I've also forgotten about the whole reagent pasta thing with mushrooms since I've been doing hell ramen all the time. Something I'll keep in mind for later runs.

My strategy is to pump -combat and go for the wheel. I supposed I could have olfacted tomb rats for keys this time with the spanglyrack but I didn't want to chance the drop rate. Didn't get my powdered organs until the 4th canopic jar either, then of course 2 in a row right after.

Pretty good at 21 turns for nuns. I wound up with only 2 black candles so no Prenatural Greed, and a turn after finishing I realized I forgot to use the arena buff. As it was I had over 500% +meat, including BRICKO pants on my scarecrow (1.5x volley, potato, 2x lep, 22 lb cap).

=> Level 13 (Turn 908)! (148/87/85)
25 turns in the Gallery. I only had 1 clover to spare for leveling and kept getting the knights/maidens instead of the louvre. I was pretty pissed off by the end of this because it should have been about 10 turns tops. Instead I had a whopping 83 mainstat/turn. Ouch.

On reflection I think I should have used the BRICKO pants on the scarecrow for most of the battlefield. I would have had a 33 lb volley (studded pants are 20 lbs, x4 volley capped at 5 lb) as well as lower blocking. My worry at the time had been getting enough drops to have a decent supply of gauze garters. I wound up with 40 and used maybe 6 on the sorceress fight. By comparison I'd have gotten around 185 main stat on the battlefield. Not huge but it would have saved me about 5 turns hunting that last louvre.

Had pretty good luck with the gates. In spite of 4 large boxes I wound up missing a potion, and had singles of like 4 others. Turns out one of the 4 I had identified was what I needed. Clovered for gum and hoped I didn't need a g-string, then 3 turns for an adder bladder.

For those curious, I'm not going to be posting another log for the DitR. My PM run had a terrible start, and not even playing fantastically days 3 & 4 could save it. I worked through 325 turns on day 4, cleared the hedge maze with 9 turns left after borrowed time. Things looked good until I got the frozen ninja star. Took 2 turns which killed my 4 day right there. As it happens I needed powdered organs as well, which hadn't dropped. Stupid canopic jars.

I knew that by not getting liver I was cutting my margin of error down by a lot. As it happens I hadn't thought I'd get as close to making it as I did.

So my potential PM 4/800ish run looks more like a 5/890ish now. And with Thursday being Thanksgiving (and Feast of Boris) there's no time to do another run. One thing to keep in mind though, the failed runs can teach you more than the successful ones. I've had a blast so far hanging in chat and bantering with my fellow contestants and the AFH folks. Huzzah!
