    Default The Weakest Link '09: League of Ice

    Welcome to the League of Ice!
    (aka league3 on the server)

    Chaos gate status: OPEN!
    (when the Chaos Gate is opened corrupt and profane tactics will be allowed)


    Playing Order:
    1. meh
    2. LuciusKain
    3. Covenant
    4. furious_styles
    5. BurnedToast
    6. Qui
    7. riktikticheck

    ChAoS gAte OpENeD!
    15. meh
    16. Covenant (killed)
    17. Qui (killed)
    18. riktikticheck (killed)
    19. meh (ascended)

    Winners of Ice:
    1st place: Covenant
    2nd place: meh


    Brief summary of the general rules:
    * descend at least one level during your round
    * no use of the up stairs (the one exception being if there's an impassable river - then you can quickly <>)
    * do not exceed the turn limit of 2000 by more than 50 - try not to exceed it at all! (the tactical display will be changed to show number of moves instead of speed)
    * give a post describing your activities after your round, including important info like using up prayers, items found and monsters encountered that could affect future players
    * you have 72 hours to play when it comes to your turn - this can be extended to one week if you have special circumstances
    * no competitive hindering tactics allowed during the first 2 rounds
    * any and all competitive and dirty tactics allowed on round 3 or after, though you must still report your activities in full
    * if you make a situation too difficult and everyone dies then the save will return to you - if you can't survive your own situation then you're out and everyone else restarts from before your turn; so be careful not to overdo it with the chaos tactics
    * lastly, have fun - this game relies mostly on luck, with a little bit of skill; try to enjoy it and don't take things too seriously

    These rules are not strictly enforced - they mostly rely on faith in the player, just as we have faith that people posting YAVPs haven't save-scummed. If you break the rules in any way and then lie about it, then the only loser is you.


    SPECIAL SERVER RULES - READ CAREFULLY!

    DO NOT log onto the server on the league account if it is not your turn. If you wish to spectate then log on as spectator/spectator. You can also chat about the games on IRC by visiting #ancardia on IRCNet (lots of people there spectating games).
    DO NOT change any configuration files on the server - the defaults will be used for everyone.

    When it is your turn you must follow this procedure exactly:

    1. Announce on the forum that you're about to play, so people will know to spectate. Popping on to IRC is nice too.

    2. Log on to the server and load the save game - make sure it's your turn and it's the correct save game. RENAME the PC to your name here on the forums. This is so spectators can know who is playing and for the high score listing.

    3. Play your turn normally. At the end you may wish to make a log file - press ')' to do so and it'll appear in the league directory.

    4. Save the game at the end of your turns. The server will automatically make a back-up of your save in case you die - you don't need to worry about that.

    5. If you die then *do not create a flg* - it contains hidden information about the char that others shouldn't know.

    Remember to join in on IRC for added fun and discussion!


    Restoring saves: A league admin will need to restore the save game if someone dies. Request that either here, in the Discussion thread, or on the IRC channel and hopefully it'll get done quicky.

    9 PV is nice. 17 HP, not so much.

    After about 12 turns, I get the stone block trap, but survive.

    After that, everything was very easy. Nobody really hurt us. I went down to I5, killing everything I came across. I can't be bothered to make a detailed report of every rat and goblin. The only significant find was a spellbook of teleport.

    Talents selected were careful and quick.

    The current level has a river, but I didn't have a chance to explore it due to a wererat summoning stuff.

    DAMN! That is some kind of luck Ethereal Bridge spellbook on ID:2!
    ADOM Guides - whatever you wanted to know about playing a certain class, but have been afraid to ask!

    Check out my youtube channel to see my ADOM videos, including a completed playthrough of the game. I try to give instructions, so if you want to see some place you haven't been before and get some hints on how to deal with it, this might help! There's also some other games featured there that you might find interesting.

    Strangest sounding game announcement, ever.

    That reminds of something I've been meaning to ask.

    gut, did you also just pick your initials as user name, or is there more thought behind it?

    no, you have a record by not making any.
    So far rolled 15 casters with RoDS and shamelessly killed them within 200 turns. For eternium glory!
