Topmodel quest

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Topmodel quest sees you fighting the Activist Leader for the Golden High Heels. The quest leader is Camp Porter.

Warning: Parts of this quest and role may be disturbing to some players. Amy Bluescreenofdeath, the creator of Slash'EM Extended (currently the only NetHack variant featuring this role/quest), explicitly states that she doesn't mean to step on anybody's toes with the addition of this role, and doesn't try to condone, endorse or encourage anyone or anything related to this quest. This especially means the ongoing conflict between topmodels, transvestites and activists in this quest - it is purely fictional, and members of these groups aren't supposed to fight each other in real life. Slash'EM Extended is just a video game, not real life, and this quest doesn't resemble any real-life circumstances. Players who are feeling uneasy about this quest are advised to play other roles instead.

"There's once again the annoying bug that I can't seem to make all the ttymaps work. If I try to save the page with 4 or more active ttymaps, preview shows all of them but clicking on submit causes Internet Explorer to show a "loading" message for several minutes which then becomes a HTTP 500 - Internal Server Error message, and the page does not save. Trying it with Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome also has the effect of causing a huge loading time, and the page doesn't save with those browsers either. Is there a limit for the # of ttymaps in a single article? But if that's the case, why are the yeoman quest page ttymaps working??? --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 10:35, 4 June 2014 (UTC)"

The player arrives somewhere on the upper left corner of the map, and needs to make their way inside the complex to reach Camp Porter, the quest leader. Several peaceful models are walking around too, which are named Kersey, Lissie, Rungud, Celina, Viktorija, Natalyana, Hannya, Mirri, Katia, Eleanor and Melissa; when chatted to, they will give a random message about the quest. However, this level also has transvestite player monsters, some activists, some random hostile @, and several dozen random ; that may attempt to drown the player.

This level is no-teleport, undiggable, and has lethe waters.

The upstairs will be in the left half of the level while the downstairs is on the right; their exact locations are random. There's a hostile heavy weapon dude named Breaker on the spot marked @, who starts out asleep. Also, there are at least 40 random ;, 20 random B, 4 activists, 2 transvestites, 5 random @, 15 random n, 5 umber hulks and 2 random U placed on this level, as well as 10 pit traps and 10 spiked pits.

This level is no-teleport, has undiggable floors and lethe water. In Slash'EM Extended version v45 or greater, stepping on any trap on this level will do some extra unspecified damage to the player even if the player doesn't trigger the trap itself, and stepping on any water square will do a random amount of damage as well as stun the player. Every time the player steps on water, the average stun length and damage done will go up (eventually dealing more than the player's maximum hit points worth of damage in a single turn), and all of these effects will still apply if the player has levitation or is flying.

The upstair on this level is on the far left with the downstair on the far right. There are 10 activists, 10 transvestites, 20 random @ and 10 random B spawned on entering the level. Also, 50 boulders as well as 50 piles of rocks are randomly placed, as well as 10 random gems. And last but not least, 50 random traps are on this level as well.

This level is no-teleport and has undiggable floors. There is no water to start with, but if any is created during the course of the game, it will be sparkling lethe water.

This level is no-teleport, and if water is generated by any means, it has lethe properties.

The Activist Leader is waiting in the throne room, with the Golden High Heels. This throne room is also a living room, filled to the brim with random hostile @. There is a room filled with mimics on the lower right and an ADOM tension room filled with monsters of one specific, randomly-chosen type on the upper right. The f on the lower part by the secret doors are hostileporter block fungi, which start out asleep. In addition to the special room monsters, the game will also place some activists, transvestites and additional random @ on the level.

There's a wide open plains around the map shown above; the player will appear somewhere to the right, but there's also a path around the complex (which has undiggable walls). Without wallwalking, the only entrances are on the eastern part of the complex.

This quest is also very hard to beat. See Topmodel#Strategy for details on how to get to the nemesis and defeat it.

Messages

Warning: Parts of the quest dialogue might be disturbing. Slash'EM Extended is only a video game (NHINRL); the author of Slash'EM Extended doesn't condone or endorse the behaviour described in this quest, and it isn't her intention to offend any real-life topmodels, transvestites, activists or members of any other group of people. Amy wants all real-life people to be able to live a peaceful life, as opposed to having to fight each other.

The quest leader, Camp Porter, isn't actually the one to send the player on their quest; rather, the quest comes directly from the player's god, and the Porter is just acting as a messenger.

"Label the messages"

Ah, Red Carpet, in the heart of your base camp. This place feels like home.

But what's that? Guys in women's clothing? Activists?

You need to get to <deity> at once and find out what's wrong here!
Once again, you are back at Red Carpet.
You are back at Red Carpet.
You have an odd feeling this may be the last time you ever come here.
"Some activist group tries to shut down our show!"
"Sorry <playername>. You won't be the next Topmodel. I will."
"Think <deity> will let you pass your next test?"
"I'm bored of drinking milkshake all day. I want some action!"
"<deity> will remove all those pesky activist faggots from our sight!"
"You took down those gay activists, <playername>? You're better than I expected!"
"You're starting to become real competition, <playername>."
"I certainly hope <deity> will choose me instead of you..."
"If only I had been the one to stop the activists!"
"Damn you <playername>, you're a <rank>! How the hell can I ever hope to compete with you?"
"Welcome, <playername>. Please come in.

<deity> isn't here. As you may have noticed, some activist group has
begun invading our base camp. They want our show to stop.

It is the task of you and your fellow ladies to thwart their plans,
but I first need to make sure you're up to the task."
"<deity> wants those activists stopped. Your chances to reach the
semi-finals will go up if you're successful. I'll check you again."
"Time is running short, <playername>! If you're not ready now, some other girl
will have to complete your task!"
"I'm sorry <playername>, but I don't have a photo for you today.

Terribly sorry, but your journey at Apokalyptia's Next Topmodel is
coming to an end now. I'll send <deity> your regards. Bye-bye!"
"<playername>, you're only a <rank> right now. If you intend to go on, you may do
so, but proceed with extreme caution! Better train your skills some
more and come back if you're more experienced."
"Your insolent attitude towards <deity> isn't going to get you anywhere,
<playername>. We don't have a use for you until you improve your standing
with <deity>. Please leave now."
"Let me tell you exactly what has happened, <playername>. We were in the middle
of a show when all of a sudden those activists appeared, screaming
some random gibberish and taking off their clothes. Underneath their
victorian underwear, those pesky women had messages written on their
breasts, saying obscene things that I need not repeat ad verbatim.

But the doodoo really hit the fan when those transvestites showed up.
They're men who dress in women's clothing! Can you believe that? And
they're helping the activists! Pardon my French, but you have to stop
those scummy faggots, <playername>. Don't allow them to win. Do whatever it
takes to get to the Activist Leader, defeat them and their servants, and our base camp
will live to broadcast another show. You may not fail, or <deity> will be
very displeased!

In order to reach the Violet Carpet where the Activist Leader is assembling their
goons, you have to traverse the wilderness, walk the tightrope to
cross the Grand Canyon, and climb the monumental vertigo walls.
Beware, everything and everyone you meet on your way will be hostile.
This is no small task, <playername>, but <deity> believes in you. If you are
successful, your chances of winning the title will go way up!

Good luck!"
"Do your best, <playername>!"
"Quickly, defeat the Activist Leader or the activists will swarm our base camp!"
"Damn those activists..."
"Damn those faggoty transvestites (pardon my French)..."
"<deity> will watch your step and evaluate your performance if you're done."
"I wonder if Wendy is beating those transvestites trying to defeat her
at World 3 Airship?"
"Have you heard of Wendy? She's the girl fighting the transvestites on
another front! Maybe she'll be the next Topmodel?"
"Heels are for girls only. That's why I don't wear any."
"Remember, <playername>, a topmodel will never give up, even if a situation
seems utterly hopeless."
"You may use all your catwalk training for a good purpose now, <playername>!"
Whoa! It's the Grand Canyon! And somebody actually put a tightrope
here, apparently daring you to try and cross it!

You'd better be unafraid of heights now. Falling from the rope could
be absolutely deadly here.
Once again, you see the majestic Grand Canyon in the distance.
You have to find a way to cross it...
So this is where the Violet Carpet and the Activist Leader are.

Better approach carefully, the activists may have lots of guards.
Once again you feel the presence of the Activist Leader. They must be stopped.
"Huh? You're one of those would-be models or what, <playername>?
Ah, I see, it's a <rank>. That <deity> seems heelbent to have you around, huh?
Well I tell you something. Your show needs to be stopped! All you're
ever gonna get from <deity> is humiliation!

Quit your topmodel job and join us activists, <playername>, or I and my friends
will teach you!"
"Come on <playername>, you know that <deity> is a no-good asshole! I'd really advise
you to become a transvestite instead! We also have cookies!

Not convinced yet, eh? Then unfortunately I have to fight you..."
"You can still change your mind, <playername>! It's not too late to flip <deity> the bird!"
"Noooo! My artifact! Give it back to me, scummy <rank>!"
"<deity> is a cruel tyrant who doesn't value the life of their underlings!"
"You're looking too skinny, <playername>! Go get yourself something to eat!"
"See what <deity> has done to you? You're obviously anorexic, <playername>!"
"<deity> can't do anything but humiliate you! Join my activists and
your life will become much more enjoyable, <playername>!"
"If you keep worshipping <deity>, you'll slit your wrists some day, so
wrench yourself away from them while you still can, <playername>!"
"I can see you're suffering from acute depression, <playername>, and <deity>
is responsible for that!"
"<deity> wants you to jump in front of a train, but there's a better
cure for your depression - slay <deity> and their team!"
"<deity> has been preaching to you that heels are for girls only, huh?
I hope you didn't believe those filthy lies."
"<deity>'s sexist, genderist and racist show needs to stop right now!"
"People who are gay, crossdressing or transgender aren't inferior!
Go back to <deity> and tell them to fuck their stupid racism!"
The radiance of the Golden High Heels blinds you for a moment, but then you know that
they have been waiting for you. A great treasure made of
lacquered leather that's waiting to gently caress your sexy feet...
With their dying breath, the Activist Leader screams:

"You stupid, impudent fool, <playername>! Nothing good did ever come from <deity>,
and nothing good will ever come from it! I may die, but my activist
group will never surrender! We will stop your anorexia-inducing
topmodel obsession yet! <deity> will get arrested eventually, and...
*cough* *cough* there will be p-peace on... once... a... *cough*gain..."

Your head spins in confusion as the Activist Leader bleeds out from their mortal injury.
Camp Porter speaks:

"Thank you so much, <playername>! The activists are busy electing a new leader.
They will attack again eventually, that's for sure, but you showed them
that <deity> and their <rank>'s are able to fight back. For a while at least,
regular ANTM schedules can continue. I'm sure <deity> won't prevent you
from reaching the semi-finals."
"Wow, that's truly a pretty pair of footwear you're wearing, <playername>."
"Okay <playername>, you've made it to the semi-finals! Your next task is to
retrieve the Amulet of Yendor. If you can do that, you will actually
make it to the final! Good luck!

On a side note, I think Kersey and Celina have good chances to reach
the final, too... maybe they will be your competitors?"
"Well, this is it, huh, <playername>? You're one of our finalists, and you
may actually be the Topmodel that we're looking for! I'm wondering,
are Everella and Jasajeen still with us? They may be the only other
ones able to win...

Anyway, the first one to ascend on <deity>'s High Altar wins! Godspeed, <playername>!"
