Thanks for the offer, Delve, but I'd rather get to level 25 on easy using my normal play style. I eventually beat the normal difficulties of D1, D2, Sacred and and HG:L doing self-enforced hardcore, and so there's some chance I'll do it here. (OTOH, I never did see the Amulet of Yendor in Rogue. I may have in Nethack.)

I spent the last half of the '80's looking for the Amulet of Yendor, no luck.

Man, I've never gotten past about the 5th level in most Roguelikes. Doom the Roguelike being the most recent exception.

Note that I define 'roguelike' rather strictly.

I kinda see DoP as continuing the traditions of roguelikes, Diablo itself was inspired by NetHack. Nothing wrong with that.

I define roguelike as the more hardcore, keyboard entry, primitive graphic games. If you loosen that definition a little to include games like Diablo, DoP, Fastcrawl, etc, then I'm not that bad at them.

I've beaten ADoM v1.1.1 (winbeta4) twice.
Dwarvish Priest and Hurthling Bard.

That's in about 6 years of playing....

I've peeked at it, but it ran quite slow and I haven't had the time to figure out why.

If you guys can bear with me... (Is that the right kind of bear? Words are so distracting.) I want to start a new hardcore challenge the first of June. You guys are free do do one before then, of course.

So... Get ready! Clean, cook, and get family time out of the way. Maybe even schedule a day off or two. We are going to ROCK!
