Nethack: the best game ever invented by man. Why get distracted by fancy graphics when you could just be an @?

This was the the easiest ascension I've had. It wasn't without its annoyances -- I drank an unidentified potion early on and it turned out to be blessed invis, so I was invisible the rest of the game. No shops for a while until I could find an uncursed mummy wrapping. I also lost my pet early.

However I found a magic lamp and got a wish for SDSM, and from there it was pretty easy. I found a spellbook of poly, and polypiled to get a ton of spells including finger of death. Sacrificing got me nothing all game, annoyingly, and a prayer got me crowned with another finger of death. I found a couple of mediocre artifact weapons (grimtooth, then sunsword and demonbane later, both wielded by archons) which was good because I wanted to bag a couple of challenges: no genocide, no polyself, no wishing for artifacts. I'll work on some harder ones next. This is the first game I've gotten the amulet without genociding L; they are very annoying.

I cleared out Fort Ludios, but didn't bother to get the gold. I bashed on the sinks for some sex and levels, then headed down. Fireball and finger of death saw me to the amulet; I needed wands of teleport on astral to keep some of the nasties away. The temple was the last I went to, natch.

Killed Rodney 6 times (finger of death all 6), pestilence and famine twice each, danced around death rather than fight him.
