YAAP Rob-Ran-Elf-Fem-Cha (slightly spoily)

This game started off wonderfully with me finding altars on
levels 1 and 5 and a large armor shop on dl3. Inside the shop
I found : Gauntlets of power, a +3 shirt, speed boots, a silver
shield, a +2 helm of brilliance and a cloak of displacement.

It took me a while to buy all these items, but I was very
pleased with my armour for this stage of the game.

After my shopping spree, I went down to sokoban and got an
amulet of reflection. Then it was off to the bottom of the
mines for my luckstone. The bottom level was the mimic of the
mines and I was able to get the luckstone without too much
trouble.

I sacrificed for a little while and my first gift was
Stormbringer. Since I'm not a huge fan of altar camping, and
stormie is a fairly decent weapon, I continued down.

After looking over my armour I decided that magic resistance
would be rather useful, so I headed back to sokoban for some
dragon summoning. I read my first scroll of genocide and sent
in some silver dragons. After I had killed them all, I realised
that I needed grey dragons, not silver ones. Whoops! Luckily
I had another scroll and was soon wearing some spiffy gray
dragon scale mail.

I enhanced my armour and went down to the quest. Here are my
prequest stats.

Naked AC 1. HP:76 Pw:101 AC:-41 XP:14

Only having 76 HP worried me a little, so after some quick
mixing of potions, I had 9 potions of full healing.
*Glug glug glug* Aaaah! HP 148 seemed a lot safer. Scorpius
didn't give me too many problems as I was able to zap a wand of
cancelation at him as soon as I saw him. He was whacked a
couple of times with stormbringer and finished off with some
arrows.

After getting the longbow, I decided it would be rude not to use
it. So I started digging out paths between the stairs that I
had seen so far (thank you autodig) and #invoking the bow every
200 turns or so. I'd also collected about 100 arrows of
different enchantment from various centaurs on the home level of
the quest. By the time I'd finished digging I had about 300
arrows in five or six different stacks. I dropped all of them
and zapped them with a wand of cancellation. I now had 300
arrows and a problem. The problem was that I hadn't seen an
enchant weapon scroll all game.

So I went down to the castle, beat up the inhabitants and got
the wand of wishing. My first wish I asked for 2 blessed
scrolls of enchant weapon. I was given one. But that didn't
matter, as used my second wish on a magic marker. A quick dip
in a potion of sickness and I soon had 300+ +7 poisoned arrows.

Gehennom was fairly boring, I paid off Asmodeus with 50 gold,
killed Jubilex with a wand of digging and peppered Orcus with
arrows. As usual, Vlad put up very little fight before dying.
I was quite surprised when I found the vibrating square on level
44.

Before I woke up the wizard I saw that I didn't have shock
resistance, so I went back to sokoban and reverse genocided some
blue dragons to remedy that.

After feeling amplified, I visited the Wiz and introduced him to
my wand of death. Soon after, the high priest of Moloch met the
wand too. The mysterious force was very nice to me and only
threw me back once and only one level.

At the plane of earth, I saw I only had 2 scrolls of gold
detection, so I tried putting on the amulet to find the portal.
After blundering around for a while, I cut my losses and wrote 2
more scrolls. The rest of the planes passed without anything
terribly interesting happening.

Upon reaching the Astral plane, I was greeted by three random
Ls, who promptly summoned up lots of annoying creatures. After
trying to slog through them, I used my last wish for the game on
a ring of conflict (that should really be a conduct "Did not use
conflict"). I teleported monsters out of my way, zapped Famine
with a wand of death and had a look at the altar.
Neutral.
Bugger.
I then made my way to the middle altar, zapping famine again as
I went past. I don't know which rider was supposed to be
guarding this one, but I didn't see him at all.
I reached the altar and checked that it was chaotic.
Hurrah!
I whistled in my pet cockatrice, used my blessed rope golem
figurine which turned nasty. Then I used my blessed figurine of
an arch lich, which shattered into pieces. Oh well. I offered
the amulet and that's my third ascention all finished.

That #3 must have been painful. Get your gloves stolen or something?

Nope, it involved stoning a creature that had fallen into a pit, then
forgetting that it was in a pit and walking over it to see what loot it
had.
