Not bad! I think I'll put up a Naga City run.

Dang. I had a NC run going well, but the poison boon crashes my game. I suppose I'll have to wait on my run till that's fixed.

Its amazing how much more difficult a run is just by playing it as a walk through.
I came up with nothing fantastic. I wanted to explain the tinker and jehora a bit but its a weak race/class combo for namtar.
Sorry to bum rush you on that one - I was trying another run but jehora bugged on me and gave me 500 piety through the game - then I had two bum games.

Oh, nice. If I may ask. How exactly do you use Goblin Convertions effectively? I mean, normally (with humans etc) you want to convert useless glyphs early on to benefit from their bonus. While with halflings and gnomes you dont have to convert anything until you really need the potion.

In this case, I saved all my conversions for the very end to eek out an extra mid-battle level-up against the bosses. Most of the time, goblins don't want to even touch conversions until they've collected all their bonus experience.

Goblins seem good for the early games but if you can make it to 10, then they lose alot of their benefit. Especially as you go lvl 11+. They are a forgiving race for normal and hard dungeons. Aint nothing to gain 2 levels while fighting a boss with popcorn and goblin. Add in a chaos avatar and you're having fun. So much fun to use goblin assassins.

I just got all the picks for my run. Where should I post it? The wiki?

Gav, I thought your run was just fine. We haven't seen a good demo of LEMISEE, and it really made a difference in that run because you were really hurting for black space near the end (as happens in nearly all VICIOUS games). It was also nice to see someone beat Namtar without relying on massive magic resistance.

Sure, the wiki is a fine place to post your annotated playthroughs.
