Lordnapalm's P SCNP 3/640 - things fall apart

Postby lordnapalm » Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:04 am

This run got off to an ok start, got better, looked like it was going good, and then fell apart violently at the end. I learned approximately zero life lessons from this run. My investments earned a .002% return during the course of this run.

Alas, this bumcheek profile is out of date. I'll update it when I get home. What that profile is missing is:

1. I HCP's the other gnomish skills besides Torso
2. I HCP'd (the run before this) Polka, Antiphon, Stevedave, and Canticle. I've still got quite a bit of karma lying around, too.

I screwed up day 1 with not having ode while drinking (more on that in a second). I screwed up day 3 because I finished the battlefield, power leveled to 13, and then realized I had forgotten to do the pyramid proper. The RNG then dealt me a cruel blow and it took awhile to get the ! potion because I ran out of pulls. The latter was a little vexxing. I usually finish under 60 or at 60 with an absurd number of Large Box pulls, but not this time.

The last few non Boris runs I have been using the Groose for the Nuns, hence the high turncount. I used the Medium on the battlefield and in part of the crypt. Bander came out when I was unsure of using the BBB. I got to play with the goth kid a bit on day 3. I used the Gibberer in the tower and for Wisnewski; he's my current NS familiar for no reason other than I like him.

I've still got some issues where I think I should be gaining stats faster at certain segments. That's a possible Familiar management issue. Certainly various side quest activites force you to ditch certain items at times and this can cut into stat gain.

I got hosed somewhat in the crypt. -20 combat and it took awhile before an NC in the cranny manifested. I also had a long oasis.

And pulls by day:

Code: Select all
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Clan VIP Lounge key
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Crown of Thrones
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Greatest American Pants
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Juju Mojo Mask
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Loathing Legion rollerblades
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 cane-mail shirt
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 ice sickle
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Operation Patriot Shield
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 Rock and Roll Legend
     #> Turn [0] pulled 1 moveable feast
     #> Turn [1] pulled 1 can of Rain-Doh
     #> Turn [50] pulled 1 milk of magnesium
     #> Turn [50] pulled 1 Boris's key lime pie
     #> Turn [50] pulled 1 Jarlsberg's key lime pie
     #> Turn [50] pulled 1 Sneaky Pete's key lime pie
     #> Turn [50] pulled 1 plastic vampire fangs
     #> Turn [66] pulled 1 ring of conflict
     #> Turn [156] pulled 1 Wrecked Generator
     #> Turn [156] pulled 3 star key lime pie


Standard stuff on day 1. Decided to pull tomorrow's food and cook a MoM for it tomorrow. I was going to not pull the vampire fangs and then I did and I can't recall why. I think I was having ML problems in the library, and decided to combat then that way.

No ode on day 1 until the nightcap. I crafted 2 tavern drinks and then a few turns later had plenty of MP for another inigo, so I crafted the third. And then cast ode and drank, and then 2 turns later cast ode again and drank. The problem was, I had 3 buffs going and 5 turns of Inigo's left when I cast ode the first time, and I didn't notice this. And didn't notice it again 2 turns later. I used quite a few peppermint twist drinks this run and used one to top off on day 1 (planning on drinking quite a few on day 2). YR'd a harem girl (used jacks to summon the quadraculars) and then a Miner.

Day 2 pulls:

Code: Select all
     #> Turn [176] pulled 1 eyepatch
     #> Turn [176] pulled 1 swashbuckling pants
     #> Turn [176] pulled 1 stuffed shoulder parrot
     #> Turn [273] pulled 1 antique hand mirror
     #> Turn [331] pulled 1 Mr. Accessory Jr.
     #> Turn [379] pulled 2 stone wool
     #> Turn [398] pulled 1 wet stew
     #> Turn [398] pulled 1 stunt nuts
     #> Turn [398] pulled 1 ketchup hound
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 beer helmet
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 bejeweled pledge pin
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 distressed denim pants
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 Wrecked Generator
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 black pepper
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 NG
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 spider web
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 baseball
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 Wand of Nagamar
     #> Turn [430] pulled 1 powdered organs


This is what the RNG finds hilarious: I equipped the He-b to try for a Bob Racecar YR but got the 3 other items quickly. So I pulled a ketchup hound and stunt nuts. And then it took a few turns to get to Dr Alarm, and then all the items dropped naturally because that's hilarious. I should wait to pull stunt nuts until I absolutely need them, anyway. And yes, I can juju kill but I never have. The few times I have tried I failed miserably to pull it off. I'm not sure why (I used the alice army store buff, a bit of extra + magic damage, and a 120mp hobo spell and came up well short in the 2 or 3 attempts I made).

I don't know why I pulled powered organs there. Oh, because it seemed unlikely I'd get to any doing ratchets. That's not an ideal tower. I screwed up my day 2 yellow rays though that ended up being a wash (see day 2 analysis to follow).

I guess I don't *need* to pull a hand mirror. I could always try for one when unlocking the ballroom but forgot this time, and even if I don't get one I don't really need it so much.

Day 3:

Code: Select all
     #> Turn [446] pulled 1 drum machine
     #> Turn [501] pulled 1 Mick's IcyVapoHotness Inhaler
     #> Turn [520] pulled 2 tangle of rat tails
     #> Turn [521] pulled 2 cyclops eyedrops
     #> Turn [537] pulled 1 star hat
     #> Turn [537] pulled 1 star sword
     #> Turn [537] pulled 1 star chart
     #> Turn [537] pulled 1 Wrecked Generator
     #> Turn [537] pulled 2 Hell ramen
     #> Turn [537] pulled 1 milk of magnesium
     #> Turn [568] pulled 1 sea salt scrubs
     #> Turn [596] pulled 1 tomb ratchet
     #> Turn [605] pulled 1 marzipan skull
     #> Turn [605] pulled 3 large box
     #> Turn [605] pulled 1 Wand of Nagamar


I observe now that (1) a Drum Machine ALWAYS drops when looking for pages but rarely before the stone rose and that (2) I don't usually pull sea salt scrubs but I have been lately. The most waste here was the hell ramen + mom. I really only needed to pull a single food item, and I had an extra milk. And I probably had a hellion cube, it was lazy not to check. Even after day 3 went wrong, I still had plenty of turns left over. It's debateable whether I needed to pull the WG, which I used in conjunction with my 2 remaining pilsners and 3 peppermint drinks. The +20 turns over an advanced cocktail simply weren't necessary. But we're really not talking about that many pulls I out and out wasted. They all would have gone to large boxen, which may or may not have saved me at the end. I grow to loathe ! potions in my advancing years.

I screwed up rats (I left myself short a ratchet by accident). Though the wheel popped up during that sequence. . . I should have spent a turn in the middle chamber and then switched to ratchets?

As usually I switch over to the harem at level 5 to YR a harem girl. Something like 5 straight perfume women.

Since I'm SRing the KGE, I suppose I should consider taking the alternate route to the king?

But made up for it with a speedy ballroom unlock.

I should note I had problems making 85 main stat for the bedroom. I'm trying to remember what I did. Oh, I had telescope + mascara + usual equipment, and then I stuck a snowy owl into my CoT.

This is where I ode-vomitted on myself.

I have at times pulled Alveoli and then done Cranny/cellar next to each other. I should maybe do that again. Only 1 rat king this time.

This is me out of hot tub visits. I have really got to stop this stupidity. I guess I didn't get screwed in the Cranny. though it's weird, I don't remember getting the NC that much. I'm guessing it showed up a couple of times right at the end. I downloaded some nice recovery script for Mafia but I haven't tried using it yet. Not that said script would fix basic stupidity.

[158-162] Rain-Doh box full of monster [50,134,67]
     o> Drank 1 Wrecked Generator (36 adventures gained) [30,28,23]


And that's day 1. Got my yellow ray in. Lost 12 or 14 turns due to ode stupidity. 5 free mining adventures were crap - I never even saw a piece of ore. (I always pick a sparkle, towards the middle if possible, and just dig straight in).

I shouldn't die so often, and certainly not enough to have to figure out how to lose the Beaten Up.

I assume eyes are affected by item drop, that's why I usually do them and the nook back to back; I put up the stylish pool table buff which helps in both places. I used to pull the Legendary Beat and use it here as well but I haven't been lately. Day 1 pulls have gotten crowded. I should probably stop pulling 3 accessories (not counting conflict, mind you).

So, here's where I screwed up day 2 YRs but it didn't matter. Day 2 YR ideally would be a hippy early, use that to YR a frat later in the day. That saves pulls, obviously, and of course stand access is nice though I did not need it. I forgot to do these things, so I resolved to YR a war hippy. Then you can hope for some outfit pieces to drop from hippies before the battlefield proper and pull the rest. Except I got a 1 turn war. So. . .

I did the 3 frat quests and then spent a turn on the battlefield to YR a hippy. This is technically suboptimal but honestly I'm not even sure if it wastes a turn and I am too lazy to do the math.

586 meat find. Overkill, really. But the only two areas I could "save" on are pulling a mick's (it's so much meat find though) and not summoning so many stickers (I believe I summoned once on day 1, twice on day 2, and thrice on day 3).

The guard chamber made me slightly nervous. Clearing 300 Item find here is a non issue. I guess the real question is: can I do that without eyedrops? I can probably come close as sometimes I've cleared 400 here. I could mix up libram summons to try and get love songs + resolutions but resolutions are so amazing that I doubt I'll do this. Maybe that's a mistake, I dunno. Old way was: hearts on day 1 then love songs the rest of the way (starting later day 1).

And yes, I said "10 ratchets, I'm done!" when I either needed 11 or to take advantage of the wheel adventure appearing.  Not the end of the world.

It's only 6 turns but the expected stat gain on the 6 turns with Ed is really high. So I probably would have saved a power leveling turn or two. I wasn't even 12.5 here. And I ran the Medium on the battlefield (should have run the Bugbear). I find I get plenty of drops to get dozens of garters when using a non item familiar on the battlefield, so I prefer stats. I could have tested my bang potions here and forgot. Also, the 3 large boxes would royally screw me.

The rest you know. This had the potential to be a solid run but I botched it rather solidly. And the RNG was apparently going to interfere at the end anyway (because, why not). Having more pulls for boxes is ideal, because you never know.

I'm also at a point where I should consider using buckets of wine for night caps, since that saves a pull and that's a tremendous amount of turngen (they're 10-16 base right? But +10 from ode); not quite wrecked generator level but I don't really need wrecked generator levels. I'm pretty sure I had 65 turns remaining when this run ended. So you're talking about 45 instead. That does pinch day 3 a little bit (though I can borrow time to make up for that) - suddenly I need to be more concerned with day 3 eats.

I used to do all key-lime pies. Lately I am summoning ghosts on day 1 and that mostly covers the pixel issue, so it's just the stat key lime pies and the stars. I could clover for a kitchen bag to make up for that (certainly worth it if I'm in trouble turn wise). On the other hand, I can clearly shave turns (and I've done better than this turn count wise on a number of occasions).
