This is impressive to exactly zero of the beta players I imagine, but I'm bragging anyway.
This afternoon I sat down for what was on a technicality* my first attempt at completing the Tower of Gaan-Telet. My champion: a goblin assassin with no better plan than to hope for a Wicked Guitar and then out-level the first two subdungeons. This quickly and predictably failed on both fronts. With blackspace running thin from poison use, I surrendered ... to despair, and began throwing out physical resources in an attempt to at least kneel before Horatio so that my blood might spite his hooves. With every tile revealed, every popcorn chewed, and nothing more than a few health potions, two worn glyphs of bitter venom and vengeful flames, and some dinky standard equipment to his name, Homice Huffpuff faced down the great economic ruiner.
It was only for a few moments that the sound of chipped horn and sloshing potions could be heard. Then a bloodied squelch as a once-great hero was casually gutted and fell to the very precipice of death. It was no surprise to Horatio that the hero then excused himself to make his peace at the nearest Altar. It was, perhaps, a little more of a surprise when the hero returned with good health and the stink of the Guardian upon him, to be gutted once more. And again. And again. And then the sound of pissing on stone and otherworldly curses. And again. And then the smug little prick stripped naked and that somehow knitted together whatever organ Horatio had been up to goring. At which point the Final Boss decided he'd had enough of this nonsense, tossed the idiot a shiny spoon to distract him, then teleported away into his other, better guarded tower and that was pretty much the end of that.
* A bug stopped my 0th run, it is void.
