Weekly Challenge Run Videos!

All things Desktop Dungeons

OK, I've done a winning run - feeling a bit too under the weather to try recording and I am terrible at taking enough screenshots for a proper run (I have some, not enough) but I'll post a little explanation of the strat with the few screenshots I have and how it worked in practice when you guys have got videos up. Took two attempts but not too rough.

So, it is certainly doable ;)

Edit: OK, I definitely need to get a better microphone than the inbuilt one before I try videos. I managed to record something but I sounded like a small child sobbing in the distance under the game music :roll: Also I keep getting distracted and making sound effects, swearing and extolling the virtues of things before getting shafted by them on account of forgetting which badges I'm going for.

I love the idea Jay; I'll try and get this done before Friday, but unfortunately no promises since I kinda lost this entire evening and I'll be busy tomorrow. I'll do my best :)

Hahahaha yeah, I know exactly what you mean XD I tend to contradict and take back half of the things I say in some of my attempts... it's simply really quite difficult to focus on both the commentary and the game, especially for something like Desktop Dungeons. An alternative could be to simply tape a run without commentary, and then either recording over it or writing a description in the forums, if you feel up to it. Either way, nice to have you joining in :)

Pulled it off, my strategy involved pointedly avoiding worshipping JJ. Didn't get it recorded, I'll try to get it recorded if not worshipping JJ is admissable (restrictions only say he has to be prepped...)

Hmmm my intention was that you would prep him and worship him immediately HOWEVER there is an inherent disadvantage in just preping him AND I didn't SAY you had to worship him (infact I just said you couldn't change gods which means you could worship someone else) SO while it may be outside the theme of the challenge slightly, finding your way around the wording of a challenge is very much in the spirit of the game itself.
I would say that this is certainly admissible.

edit: I just did my own run and used 100% cheese to win and avoid a lot of difficulties. I would say any competent player could use my strat to win 100% of the time.

Hmmmm, interested in what cheese you're going for Jay. I think I've got something that's pretty much a 100% guaranteed win as well. I have a recording but the commentary doesn't pick up on my mic so I'll have to annotate it or something.

I also did it. Was a lot harder for me than the last one, but made me learn a lot about JJ. :)

And yes, my prepping a god suggestion implied that you worship him immediately.

To catch up, here's my wizard gnome purist miser shifting passages run end screen from last week:

Okay, so it's technically been Friday for three hours here, so I'm gonna go ahead and post the video, since it seems everyone has already had a shot at it. I won't reveal the strategy here just in case, maybe we can all discuss this later tomorrow (today) and have a laugh :)

Anyway, the video's kind of long. You can easily tell I almost never play with the Vicious Token and that my brain is going "Northern Desert lol" rather than carefully thinking about every move. In any case, courtesy of sleep deprivation, you get to watch me do things in the wrong order constantly, waste a ton of blackspace while poisoned MORE THAN ONCE, and generally not paying attention... I'll let you judge the results ;) Hope this isn't too painful to watch for our veteran audience...

Now its friday and I got an idea for a Challenge Run all week^^ I think its pretty hard, so I post it early, so you can have a whole week at it:

Dungeon: Magma Mines
Class: Rogue

Preps MUST include:
-Really Big Sword
-Tikki Tokki

Only challenge here: You have to worship TT before you kill a monster and cannot convert out. You also cannot convert RBS.

I have no idea if this is really doable but it is kinda crazy :D

I won't be online for the weekend, so here's my result screen. I went with a gnome wizard once again and used the agnostic collar to get early mana boosts.

Random mana burns screwed me the first two tries, in this run I found a keg of mana which helped.

And of course I forgot about whupaz as always.

@Nurator: I accept. You can actually beat basically any non-vicious dungeon with that set up and a little thought.
