War Stories
For starters, great game. Follow-up, still haven't beat it since I started playing--though I don't dedicate massive amounts of time to this. I've finally made it to the end, and like all the other times wherever they were--I was dog food. So I think this forum needs a War Stories column. Because in the end...you will die somehow and it's usually ridiculous. I've played a few times since my inspiration for this attempted column, so I'm dry on a good story. Vent, VENT adventurers! I wanna hear how YOU were F'd in the A!

Well I found this book that allowed me to summon just about anything at random, that was great so I decided to try it out in the tavern. Went nice at first, getting al kinds of swords and some crazy enemies I did not see before, and then I got this floating giant skull that filled the room with skeletons and purple skulls. Even though you cannot die in the tavern and can always restore by going to the loo, I could never leave either. Instant death guaranteed everytime :)

Perfect! Ya, get used to the floating enchanted skeleton makers, they're pocked in the treasure, I've not been able to crack that one. I've decided to rely on stealth rather than braun, the party at the end of the tunnel is crazy. Still haven't planned how to get all 10 treasure bits, I've only been able to pick up 4.

I saw a Vampire lord guy across the room. He didn't mind me from where I was standing. I overestimated my chances of winning. I thought he looked like a big goth nerd so I charged at him. He then turned into a million bats that all continued to eat at me one by one. It didn't end well.

This is perfect.

I was once adventuring in some deep dungeon. T'was not very big, just enough to lunge in. I was slashing things of every sort, when all of a sudden I heard a snort. I looked over to find a kitten. It felt softer than your grandma's mitten. I took it under my wing and we stayed far and wide. I always felt safe, with it by my side. A little while later, I was fighting a beast. I put the Cat down, to appease it at least.I should have known. Life isnt like cake. Putting the cat down, was my first mistake. The cat, bewildered and afraid, made much much, much more noise than a Santa Parade. It ran around wildly, terrified and scared, I just wished that it would not have been snared.Running around, it tripped into lava. I guess you could say that it looked like Quilava. Poor little guy, he had such a short life. I tried not to cry as I finished my strife. I looked up and a creature appeared. One giant-♥♥♥ wraith that could not be steered. It flew, I ran. It howled, I drank a potion and farted. After approximately 6 seconds my shallow life ended, and my animal abuse had been rightfully amended. This presses a warning to all future dungeoneers. Be kind to your cats, or suffer their sneers.

Yea, this game really likes the kitty's, pick em all up. Those ghosts will kill you no matter WHO or WHAT kills the cat. Seems if you ALLOW the death of the kittens, you shall be punished severely. I've only escaped a couple times, never go back to that room, mark it off.

Oddly, after starting this I haven't had a worthwhile story, but seeing a warlock shooting out of the lava at my minions reminded me to say: Watch out, warlocks fire from the lava, they are still dangerous till they're dead. I've died probably the most, excluded general stupidity attributed to several different instances, from warlocks (the ones that shoot the red skulls). I have seen in other forums people asking whether others use melee. Yes, but only when its a safe bet. Don't melee a wizard, he will F$%^ you up one time or the other, and eventually you run out of potions and apples, and you frustratingly kamikazee your way to the treasure and waste about an hour to two of gameplay back to the beginning. --"The Dwarves delved too deeply..."

The green skull wizards can be melee'd safely, since you can kill the skulls off quickly if you have a fast weapon. The red ones are probably best killed while distracted by minions. On their own they are not that scary, but when combined with other enemies or more warlocks they can be really deadly.

Hoo, boy. It's good to vent on this sometimes.

I've taken to playing this on Impossible with a buddy, just today got the Treasure back up and placed I think 5th on the leaderboard, ( I figure the other guys found the Gambler room and made buku bucks or something, I didn't get near their cash.)

The time before that made it down with no good gear whatsoever (no magic books either,) grabbed the treasure, and as we left the treasure room via the one exit possible a cat was broken out of a box and got set aflame. Cue 70 furious Ultra-Wraiths blocking the only exit to the top. Every route up went through this room and they were very aware of our presence.
Spent like a half hour just trying to pick a good moment to sprint through, got annihilated when we tried. Very painful, spent way too long on that run.

Especially since there's no reliable healing once you go into the dungeon, no rest points or anything, so if you want health you have to trek all the way back to the top. Urgh. Dull, dull, dull.

Found amazing items, made it to the treasure room, and there were about three of those giant skulls. Fun fun. Managed to nab it and get away. Nearly no health, running through pitch-black rooms trying to make it back to the tavern. Got killed by a secret door.

HAHAHA, I knew this thread would fly since there was no venting chat for this game! I haven't played recently, but at least as to the hours it can take to run--it's nice they added the save feature so we/I don't have to leave the game running. Crazy when you make it THAT far (Henry) and couldn't come up with good gear, love that rogue mechanic. Sometimes with less loot tho, the focus is easier and the goal is simple--Survive!

My journey to the 26th floor was great, no major hardships, not too much boss and lots of healing, until at the last floor, a new staircase appears... While admiring this very beautiful new level, I got attacked and accidentaly killed one of the cats. I was destroyed by Wraith, before I could use my 100+ apples and my 3 great healing potions. I never won the game yet and I felt really angry for this little mistake :<.
That's it, I didn't want to say that, but I don't like cats in this game anymore...

one time I found a giant sword that gave me +88 attack. another run i found a nimble gerbil that threw little gerbils at my enemies to attack.
I've derped and died at the hands of warlocks, but they're easy once you attack their projectiles. I just try and run if there's more than one per room
I've also died trying to clear my inventory of kittens

What's up with Dr. Who? He doesn't do much of anything except shoot me with lasers. Can summon things to attack him and he does take damage but seems to have very high health and no point to his random room aside from the "time traveler" nametag...which really does nothing apparently
