The 31st game at NAO was my first game of NetHack to score over 20,000 points. This Wizard went farther than Kernigh ever went before, but died at 1 July 2006.

  • NetHack 3.4.3
  • Kernigh the chaotic female elven Wizard
  • Score: 73940
  • This had been my highest-scoring game to date.

Gameplay

As it was my fashion at the time, I named the kitten "Not Morris", then set out to explore the dungeon. Dlvl 1 had a cursed clear potion, unholy water. It was also my habit to leave locked doors in place. At Dlvl3 I bought a +0 (plain, nomagical) helmet from the shop. At Dlvl5, I quaffed from a fountain because I was Weak, but ultimately on Dlvl6 I became Fainting and had to #pray. Dlvl5 had a general store where I bought food rations. Then I went back to explore the weapons shop at Dlvl4, from which I bought:

A chest at Dlvl4 became my stash. The speed boots made this game much easier. The hobbit on Dlvl6 tried to use a wand of sleep against me, but I was already an Xlvl5 elf with sleep resistance. I went up to explore the Gnomish Mines, entering at Dlvl4 (Mines 1). Even as I reached Minetown (Dlvl6) with no pet, I had in easy time in melee with monsters. The local lawful altar of Ptah became my way to discover BUC status. The tool shop sold me a key for $13. After fleeing Dlvl7 (Mines 4), I discovered a used armor dealership at Dlvl2 (Dungeons of Doom) at turn 5756, for I had not fully explored the level.

At Dlvl4 (Mines 1) I tamed a pony with a lichen corpses and called it "Lichenbane", but I soon lost it. Later in Minetown (Dvl6) I ate a leprechaun corpse and felt "jumpy", so I tried to #jump. It failed because I instead had teleportitis. At Dlvl7 I tamed a little dog with a fortune cookie and called it "Fortune". A second pet, Fortune II, joined me at Dlvl4 (Mines 1). I used one leash on each dog, thus they followed me whenever I teleported. I took my dogs back to the Dungeons of Doom. Meanwhile, I vastly increased my knowledge of the identity of the dungeon's objects.

I explored Dlvl7 (Oracle) to Dlvl8 and entered Sokoban. By 30 June 2005 I had finished three levels of Sokoban with the help of spoilers. At 1 June 2005 I finished the fourth level; my reward was a bag of holding.
