This is the first time I've done anything like this, so no promises.  I plan to update this thread (as time permits) until my little Spriggan is dead or I recover the Orb of Zot.

Happy Hedonist started life as a level 1 Spriggan Stalker.  I had started playing him before Schild created the Radicalthon, so this initial post will be a summary of what my little shit head has been up to thus far.

Here is a current char dump.

So far Happy Hedonist has stabbed, poisoned, and confused his way to the lair level 3.  My current plan is to grind my way through the lair and then head back to the Orcish Mines, which I skipped.  After clearing the mines I will head towards the swamp in hopes of recovering my first rune.  I will start doing more screenshots as I progress, but right now I only have a couple. 

Here we see HH's initial start.



And here is my prized possession at the moment.  Now I just have to decide as to whether I want invisibility or teleport other next.



This is HH right now.



Here's hoping that ghost doesn't fuck me up and my next post is not my last!

Well fuck!  I killed my ghost with the help of a wand of fire, worked my way to lair level 7, and then proceeded to get ass-raped by a whole lot of yaks backed by brown snakes and giant frogs.  This game is hard.  I haven't quite decided what my next class/combo is going to be but I'm leaning towards deep elf conjurer. 

Here is my morgue file.

I think for my next run I'm going to stop grinding in the lair after about level 5 and then head back to the Orcish Mines.  Lair Levels 6+ gets pretty mean.  This game is like crack!

What game is this?  I never got into the rogue-likes (if that's what this is) and am clueless.  Looks great.

Deep elf Conjurer is quite good.
Also, Orc Priest of Beogh, leading around hordes of adoring orcs is hella sweet!  The ones that survive will gain xp/classes and get names.
Also Also, Sludge Elf Transmuter works pretty well, and is a bit of a different experience.  Exploding potions and blade hands.

I wish I would have taken a screen shot, but I was too pissed at the time.  I was surrounded by about 6 yaks and several other snakes and such without enough mana to blink.  Getting killed by a herbivore... grrr.

Beware to all, lair 6+ seems to be chocked full of mean shit.  I just lost another character on lair level 8 last night.

I'm going to do another thread soon, probably next week.  I'm deciding between a Vampire Enchanter and a Deep Elf Conjurer.

Also, I  Heart DCSS.  I haven't been this addicted to a game since EQ, no shit.

Just visited L9 of the Lair myself with my 15 Conjurer.  Went down the stairs smack in the middle of 3 death yaks and 3 blink frogs.  If it wasn't for lucky rolls w/mephitic cloud, I would have met my end right there too.  Death Yaks do in fact suck.

Personally, I usually get killed by some ogre or named guy (who turns invisible and rapes my face). I'm at the point where I'm just going to run from Ogres. I refuse to play Spriggans though.

I might be missing something, but I am not dominating this game by any means. I throw lots of shit, try kiting but in the end something dumb always gets me. It's like I'm missing one thing, some ability I don't know about and then I would be awesome for reals!

Sigmund sucks ass, especial on level 2.  At lunch I killed him by making him chase me down a hall and just shot arrows down hall.  In spite of being invisible, the arrows still hit him.

Is there a way for people who don't start with books can use the books they find?

I think it depends on the class and the book.  For instance my Spriggan Stalker could read the 'Book of Power' I found.

Yeah, you have to read scrolls until you gain the Spellcasting skill.  Be sure to read the scrolls while you have available xp.

So I finally got my Conj a see invisible item, took a scroll of acquirement to do it.  The elf rapeage has been commencing steadily.  Fireball and Mehpitic Cloud are excellent for elf raping. 

My main hint for starting:  Use auto explore
  • it will automatically stop everytime an enemy shows up, so you don't give it any free hits.
My other hint:  Go slow, patience is a virtue.  Consider carefully your moves in tough situations, run away if possible, use your items, figure out what your items are before you get into tough spots so you can use them.
]
I think the only reason I got as far as I did with my conjurer was a lucky roll got me a dagger of protection (+5 AC) early on.

Here he is, if anyone is interested.

Well, tried Deep Elf Conjurer...got like a 10k score so I feel better.

Ended up dying to 1 swing from a hill giant...From full to dead. I had SOOOO many ways I coulda got out of that situation, yet I tried for one more cast, not expecting the 45 point swing. I had 44 health. Lesson learned.

That's harsh.  Post up the Morgue file if you don't mind...

Most damage I've taken so far in 1 shot was from an Elven Sorc on L7 of Elven Halls, he throws some fire spell that does 65+ thru 2 levels of fire resist.  Ouch.  The second worst was from some elf with a lightning bolt that hit me 3 times off one cast.  Learned that lesson, watch how you stand in relation to things that might throw spells that bounce off walls.  But somehow my guy still lives on, getting so I don't want to play him because I know death is just around the corner.

Is it not true that Mephitic Cloud is the best thing ever?

Also, I might have totally messed up by sticking with a +1 robe. How does armor/weapons effect your spellcasting?

And yes....confusing nearing anything then nuking the fuck out of them is great. I found a transmutation book I think it was that allowed me to learn blink and some other stuff, and a war chant book that gave me haste and repel missiles. I was rockin.

Oh well. I'll post the morgue file tonight.

I also, throughout that whole time, never found a single ID scroll.

I believe that Leather and Robes are the same for casting, Heavy armor(pretty much anything else) makes casting "slightly more difficult" depending on your armor skill (which you get when you wear heavy armor).  What that means exactly I'm not too sure of, I've been sticking with the light stuff.  Pretty sure weapons don't effect casting at all.

Did you find yourself using Haste a lot?  How bad is the magical contamination from it?  I am having trouble deciding if I want a direct damage spell next or Haste.  Right now I regularly use fireball on single enemies because it's my highest damage spell, but that's rather wasteful.

No ID scrolls is a royal PITA.  FYI for some reason Identify is very hard to cast, I had to get my divination up to 8 or so before I had a fair chance to cast it, and it still failed all the time.  Fireball (same level) had a good or excellent cast chance when my fire magic was at the same level.  OTOH, it would be worth it if you had no id scrolls, and the spell I used to get Div way up there (detect creatures) is actually extremely useful, it tells you where every creature is on the level and what basic sort of creature they are.

Another hint for casters is to be sure and get some Fighting skill.  You can hit plants to get to level 2 in it, and that's a decent chunk of bonus hps.

I've spent the last couple days trying to get a Minotaur Berserker past level 5.  Ranged/Magic classes seem much easier to get up and running.  It could be the fact I'm sick as fuck and not thinking clearly, but I'm definitely having a more difficult time with melee classes.  It seems you really have to get lucky on drops to stand a chance whereas a ranged class can just kite.

My current run is looking promising, finally, and I'm hoping this all pays off a little later.  I haven't been looking at many spoilers so I'm hoping I get some pretty nice abilities soon.

Best I did was like a level 7 Chaos Knight, and that was because I was ole boy's 'plaything' and he gave me a demon that raped a few tough monsters for me. Then fucked with me, took my awesome scythe and animated it against me, i had to use a tele scroll to escape.

I think that should be the next challenge to all! Make a bad ass melee guy.

I think a straight melee is def. doomed to failure, you need some ranged attack.  There's just too much stuff that is too risky to fight in straight melee when you first run into it, especially at the lower levels.

Bows are excellent and plentiful once you bash some elves, blowguns use dart skill and poisonate everything, also plentiful if you see more than a few kobolds.

Getting dusted as a human fighter (totally original, I know).  Farthest I got was level 5.  Ogres for the lose at close range.  Still have a sense of "No!!!!!one!!" at the permadeath screen.

Am playing the fuck out of this game.

I've had luck with demonspawn Death Knights (of Yre-whatever).  I just pick up all the arrows and bolts  and use the first bow or crossbow I find.  A few lucky demonspawn mutations can make it a lot easier, and have a couple pet zombies running around can buy some critical extra time. 

Farthest I've gotten is with a draconian wizard who turned grey at 7 (actually the only drac I've had live long enough to change) - probably the best thing that could have happened, with the extra hp and ac.  Level 14, baby!  ... and then I ran out of mp in the middle of a crowd.  While starving.   swamp poop

Equip second hand?  Not sure I follow, this game doesn't have dual wield afaik.  If you mean a 2 handed weapon, that is automatic.

I've tried a spriggan warper, found the translocate school to be lacking.  In order to control a casted blink, you have to have teleport control active and even then it's a crap shoot.  I'm bitter because I actually got pretty far and when I needed to blink it failed 2 times in a row, apparently because it couldn't place me in the direction I was trying to blink or somesuch.

I talking about the second weapon.  Like a dagger, the one you will throw and use to cut corpse.  I wanted cut a corpse with a knife since the description said it was good at it.   It always use my equiped dagger instead.

I talking about the second weapon.  Like a dagger, the one you will throw and use to cut corpse.  I wanted cut a corpse with a knife since the description said it was good at it.   It always use my equiped dagger instead.

I think the knife mentions that it can be used to butcher just so it doesn't seem so useless?  Any edged weapon can butcher corpses.  If you equip the knife then butcher it should use it.

I finally gave up on the Minotaur Beserker and ended up trying out a Hill Orc Priest.  I'm in love.  A small army of fellow orcs + smite = love.  Just be sure to pick up the armor and shield skills asap.

I may do another little AAR with my new favorite class/race combo come Monday or Tue, but no promises.

Ok, this is ridiculous.  As if elves didn't have a hard enough time surviving the early levels.
