I propose that on the first of February (Friday), we have a friendly Depths of Peril hard core challenge until Valentine's Day. Letís make a new character of any class, and see how far we can get without dying.

The last one standing shall be the ultimate victor! Do I have any takers?

can we mod our games or not :p

I would certainly enter, but I seem to get constantly distracted while playing DoP, which leads to a fair number of YASD.

Play your mod. Gmae the system by stocking your shared stash if you want. I keep some stuff in mine, and I'm not emptying it out for this little tourny.

The key is fun! I think it's a fun challenge, and I'm not getting too serious about it. It isn't like there will be some judge standing over your shoulder. :p But at the same time, don't be outrageous with something you know is over the top. Some of us people don't mod. :D

Tomorrow's the big day! I hope some of you guys will play with me. :) If you can't start tomorrow, start whenever you like. We'll throw up our characters on the 14th to see who got the farthest.

What a good idea! I've always kind of wanted a hardcore mode in DoP:rolleyes:

Count me in!

I'll probably go with a Rogue (for the extreme challege) and play super carefully... By the way, I'll be using stock 1.07 with nothing from the shared stash.

I die something like 10-20 times a day, so I probably won't be joining in :)

I, too, wish to be counted among those who are 'in.'

I think I got my last character to 39 without dying. (I'd have to check the character export thread to be sure.) As much as I've enjoyed playing Brannoc, I'm forcing myself to try a different class for this challenge, so all of the warrior-specific experience I've accumulated will likely be inapplicable. In fact, I expect it to work against me since I'm going to be out of my element. I look forward to being slain by a level 3 mud amorph.

So no, I don't expect to be able to pull something like that off again, especially since Brannoc took to death like a vampire to a jugular vein. He's around level 56 now and has died something like 40 times.

I suspect he thinks that I enjoy the soulstone-collecting minigame. Either that or he's half-man, half-raccoon. "Oooh, shiny!"

If that's the case, please consider this a formal request that the soulstones have some of their lustre removed.

Oh! oh! Me! I want to play!

Count me in, seriously! Awww, c'mon Bunny...it'll be fun, who knows...you could stay alive the longest!

I'm gonna have to think up a new covenant name...something lucky, methinks...

*runs off to ponder*

Well, I was going to beg off on account of not having great heaps of time to play in. Then I realized how often I die. So.

I think I'll start a shiny new mage and see how long it takes him to fall over. It's the only class I haven't played yet, and I don't think I even have anything in my stash that would be useful. I'll be pulling my mods out for the time being though.

Delilah Rehm
02-01-2008, 02:32 PM
Yay to everyone! This is going to be super fun!

Since we are keeping this open with no hard rules (other than not dying), I propose anything you use outside of what a new non-modded player would have should be disclosed. I may use some stuff from my stash, and I will list them. I doubt I'll have much I can use at first, because most of it is 40-50 level stuff, but if someone dies near where I die and they used nothing, I think that says something. The prize is personal satisfaction and maybe bragging rights. We all win the community of frolicking haphazardly with monsters together. Except not exactly together. :D

I'm starting a warrior today. I've played a warrior some before, but not much. This should be fun! :)

Delve
02-01-2008, 03:57 PM
Well the mage is pretty easy so far. Though at level 6, that isn't saying a lot. And, apparently, I might as well have used the unique Stormbringer in my stash, because I've already found an artifact one to use. Go figure. :D

Delilah Rehm
02-01-2008, 05:36 PM
My warrior, Riddick, is level 7. I checked my stash and there is a belt I can use, but now that I haven't used anything from there, I hesitate to start. :confused: The harder thing is not pulling out my collection of 8 slot bags. Oh well... Might as well see what happens without them!! :)

Delve
02-01-2008, 05:49 PM
To make it more interesting I've instituted a clan entry requirement of knowing at least one spell. Warriors and rogues need not apply.

Taleana
02-01-2008, 07:40 PM
So I've started a rogue. She has the obligatory Ciglio's Belt that all my characters seem to pick up a hundred times, and I bought a yellow dagger from another covenant. I have one recruit so far, another rogue...which is really fun...

I've come CLOSE to death within the first hour...but managed to make it through the gate before I fell over--silly bosses.

Well, back to it!!

Delilah Rehm

O----M----G----:eek:
Seriously!!!!
So I'm trying out this named scorpion after my mage got him down to half health. The guy bats me like it's nothing. I run home, touch the lifestone, eat something, then promptly die. Can you say, THAT SUCKS! :mad: I'm freaking first to die! Oh well.... I guess I can start a new one tomorrow. I've still got thirteen days to not be stupid!

My rogue just got pasted at level 7. Not even worth posting the stats.

I'm going to start another one tomorrow.:(

Delve
02-02-2008, 06:08 AM
<sigh> That was short. Only level 8, and wasted by a deep wound from a unique 2 levels below me. After I touched the lifestone :(

In my defense, I was also being poked at by a couple of upgraded scavengers that snuck up on me in the forest (damn those trees, I didn't notice them till they got bigger!) so my hitpoints went down rather faster than I was expecting.

I think I'll keep him anyway, and drop out of the race to work on a different project. :)

What if I died around level 20 but got an Access Violation upon resurrecting? The game reset back a couple minutes before I died - so the journal still shows 0 deaths?

What if I died around level 20 but got an Access Violation upon resurrecting? The game reset back a couple minutes before I died - so the journal still shows 0 deaths?

My experience with roguelikes would lead me to consider that one as a death. By all means play on with the character and submit the character sheet later on if you wish, but I think that it would be good form to also include a footnote that you died and were playing from an autosave.

In any case I don't think that there are any hard rules in this tournament, more just something we are all doing for a bit of fun.

Me? I'm on my 3rd rogue now. Just can't seem to keep them alive much past level 7 :p

Taleana
02-03-2008, 10:26 AM
I would actually consider this an act of the deities of DoP and say keep playing.

Last night was exciting for me. I finally had to take a break after an exceptionally hard fight that left me limping through a gate, praying I'd reach my lifestone in time, and holding my breath as my hitpoints slowly stopped dropping at 32 and inched it's way back up. Talk about close...

But currently I'm level 13, almost 14, and I have a full covenant of rogues. Delilah, this was a great idea, this has been the best game I've played so far!

Shadow
02-03-2008, 11:06 AM
I'm playing like Taleana right now, but trying to form a covenant of all warriors, which is surprisingly hard since I can't find any warriors to recruit. My first character was obviously not fit for ruling a covenant of warriors as he embarissingly died at level 4. :) He got mobbed at the entrance to a dungeon by a large group of monsters while the puppeteer got distracted by something.

My 2nd character is still alive though at level 7 or 8 and doing much better. Still have no recruits, so the other covenants that all have 2 or 3 people are a little scary. It's interesting to join in on someone else's raid with your one character against a stronger covenant, because you just want them dead.

Delve
02-03-2008, 02:42 PM
The one raid that Feye Affinite entered into prior to its leader's untimely demise was indeed very nerve wracking. Tunnel vision set in every time I saw another red life bar pop up. Fortunately one of the more friendly covenants joined in before I gave myself a heart attack.

i'm in! no shared stash use, i don't want to pull out mudbeard's set and feel guilty.

Taleana
02-03-2008, 06:20 PM
It was a good run, and I may start an even newer character and see if I can get any higher than this...but for now I'm happy.

It was a combination of hearing a trap get set off and talking to someone in the room with me that got me killed...silly distractions.

Yuxi was manageable, with some hit-and-run tactics, but I fell when I was mobbed and slowed by a Scorpion and when I managed to put them between me and my gate.

Tal, level 18... that's amazing! I guess Areli is in the lead with a level 20. That's pretty cool guys.

I don't know why it seems so hard to get over level 10! For my second character, I started my very first rogue ever. :D I never had to play a rogue during testing because Steven's main character was usually a rogue. My girl, Zoey, is level 6 currently. I don't know that I'll make it to 20, but I really hope to beat my first loss at 11.

All of you lurkers out there are welcomed to join the hard core fun!!! 10 days left to see who can stay alive longest! And those of you playing, make with the updates! Anyone higher than 20?

On my 2nd try with a warriors only covenant I got up to level 9. Much better than level 4, but not exactly great. :) I'm starting to think the warrior only restriction is harder than the hardcore part, so my next character is going to be just a normal hardcore character with no recruit restrictions.

Taleana

Thanks, Delilah, it was stressful at certain points...but I will let you in on a secret...stealth is your friend...and so is putting your gate up far enough from the area's gate that you can kite bosses back and forth between the two and still have a relatively safe place to go back through...

Now that I've said that watch Stephen find a way of making the bosses show up wherever I come back at....:D

I'm starting again tonight...I'm thinking I'm going to rethink my policy on boycotting the two 'male' classes simply because their male and play a warrior. :eek: Scary, I know...


Well, I'm off to....die...more than likely... ;)

The only way I could possibly gain any ground in this contest... is to never leave my covenant.

And even then, something would probably come in and eat me. Or kill me in some other horrifying way. :eek:

After much patience, practice, planning, and shameless running away, I've made it back up to level 20 with a new Rogue. Since there's now a hardcore mode in patch 1.008, I suppose I'll be restarting with that. I remade a Rogue after having that death & error message as posting earlier. Just got back up to level 20 today. I haven't died yet, but am going to go ahead and post since I guess the game is off and it's time to play real Hardcore. With regard to equipment, the shoulders and boots are from a higher level character, everything else was either found this game or carried over from failed attempts at the hardcore challenge. I just realized that the max damage taken stat equals my total Health amount - I have a recruit with level 5 Hardiness, though that additional health is not shown here.

The only tips I can think to give are:
1) be very familiar with your class. My first character is a Rogue who has been level 100 for a while now (and has died over 400 times). The reason I keep making Rogues is simply because, to me, they are the most fun to play (and there's always room for improvement).
2) if you think you need a potion, you do
3) liberally sacrifice your recruits against tough monsters to weaken them.
4) cast a town portal before every questionable battle (in other words, have an escape plan).
5) check the enhancements on boss-types before charging in, and get to know which little icons are dangerous for your class (e.g. 100% Thorns).
6) if you find that an opposing covenant consists of lots of Rogues and Warriors (even worse if they are stealth Rogues), make them your ally instead of fighting - even if establishing an alliance takes longer to finish the game.
7) if you're having trouble leveling up, remember you can exit and resume the game to respawn monsters, or finish it up and redo lower level storyline quests in a new game for extra experience and items.
8) either have 80+% health before opening a treasure chest, or keep your finger on the potion button for when you hear that 'click'.

To be safe from traps make sure that you have more health than 15x your level (more accurately 15x the level of the chest). Which is fairly simple to do for most classes until your low 20's then it becomes problematic to maintain if you don't plan ahead.

For reference if you played with no gear at all to level 100 you would need to spend the following # of stat points on vitality per level to maintain that:
Warrior: 2.75
Priest: 3.50
Rogue: 3.50
Mage: 4.03

Luckily you have gear and resists which in practice make it far more manageable than that.

If you want to survive 50% of the traps naked you would need to spend the following per level:
Warrior: 2.15
Priest: 2.75
Rogue: 2.75
Mage: 3.18

And for fun if you want to survive only the weakest trap possible and die on anything but a min dmg trap:
Warrior: 1.55
Priest: 2.0
Rogue: 2.0
Mage: 2.32

Again those #'s are only for a level 100 player naked against a level 100 trap. The free 25 vitality that you start with GREATLY affects what you need to survive for lower levels.

Anyways, back to my hardcore Mage (with Mage recruit), lvl 17 and I don't foresee dying until mid 30's and that will be to a trap since I didn't follow my own numbers :p

Please don't let the hardcore mode in the new patch force you to start a new character. The challenge started before the patch came out and it's only for fun anyways. Also, some people won't be able to play the new hardcore stuff for a while anyways.

I think all you have to do is:

1)download patch 1.008
2) install patch 1.008
3) start a new game
4) select Hardcore from the character creation screen
5) Enjoy!

I believe that you'll also need a level 25 (at least) softcore character on your roster for hardcore mode to be available. Not that that would pose a problem for most of us diehard DoP players around here:D

Stephen...I seriously want to know your secret...and I'm suddenly NOT as upset that I can't play a female warrior.

Because apparently I'm just NO GOOD at playing a warrior--period.

My second attempt at this little challenge isn't even worthy of being posted. My first (and probably ONLY) warrior died at level 2. I think it's safe to say I suck at warriors.

I have a second rogue started and I'm not holding out as much hope for her as my first attempt with only three days left...that and I think my confidence is gone after being smacked down by a pixie. A PIXIE!!!! :eek:

So seriously, Stephen, what's your secret? Level 4 suddenly seems very hard to accomplish.

Shadow
02-11-2008, 09:10 PM
My secret of having a warrior die at level 4 is go into a dungeon, piss off a lot of monsters, and get distracted by something in the real world. :)

Seriously, not sure there are too many secrets about a warrior. I think they tend to be pretty item centric, so upgrade your items as often as possible. I also tend to build up more rage at the beginning than I can actually use so getting another skill, other than your starting power strike, fairly soon is useful. Other than that keep food and potions handy. My latest hardcore warrior died because I didn't have enough potions on hand.

This has been far and away my best hardcore character, and since it's time up alreday, I'm going to post her even though she is still alive and kicking. I've taken the liberty of assuming that when Delilah said the 14th of Feburary she meant that date in the US, (you egocentric Texans have a reputation to live up to after all :D), and so I'm posting even as it is the morning of the 15th here.

I'm amazed at how playing so much hardcore over the last few weeks has made me a better player. I now take much more responsiblilty for my recruits and their equipment as well as regularly checking the vendors inventories for new gear.

Well, here's my self-inflicted rogue, Poe. Despite my admittedly morbid predictions as to her life expectancy, I actually made it further than I did with my warrior (if only by one level). I died rather early into a new world and, here's the embarrassing part: in Grimalkin Forest. That holds the embarrassment equivalent of going soulstone fetchin' at Level 1.

To add insult to injury, you'll note when you get to the end of my export that the values for 'strongest' and 'weakest monster killed by' are conspicuously blank.

*Inhale*

While collecting six Raging Kodiak Nostril Hairs and with my normally robust health at about half because the area was mostly empty and I possessed an 'I'm-a-cocky-never-been-dead-hero-who-scoffs-at-all-things-hazardous' mentality despite that fact that I had no way to heal myself since I was out of both food and potions and prices were too high for the former (which is why I needed that last, crucial nosehair), I made a beeline for the final item that would complete my half-dozen quest objects.

*Exhale*

Apparently, I should have used a more serpentine path, because that's when I heard the shtink.

Shtink?

Poe go kablooie. Instadeath. I didn't have time to run away like I am sometimes able to do when triggering 'circle of flame' traps. I'm not even sure what kind it was since I was so stunned that I just sat staring at the monitor in disbelief, my soulstone sparkling sadistically.

This ignominious death occurred last night (at about the same time that I am now composing this probably unnecessary explanation), so I suppose you could say that I've observed a commendable 24 hours worth of mourning.

I'm going to miss you, Poe. But not as much as this exceptionally rare find:

33

Kinda makes me wish recruits were transferable between characters.

Well, time to roll that priest I've been threatening for a while now. Kudos to all those who signed up! Some of my best DoP moments--and therefore, PC gaming moments ever--happened while participating in this challenge. Hopefully everyone else has similar memories.

(Oh, and I may have taken a bit of artistic license with the quest object name. I can't actually remember what I was sent out to retrieve.)

2 successful offensive raids by level 10? Agressive :)

Wow! Congratulations Desticato. Level 40 is awesome:p

This was so much fun that I'm eagerly awaiting a new challenge of some description. Perhaps a challenge to see who could beat Draaien at the lowest level or who could find the highest amount of tomes in a given amount of time, I dunno...:confused:

I bought my copy of DoP last Friday, and this thread's way of playing rogue-likes is exactly how I've enjoyed playing rogue-likes since, well, Rogue in the early '80's. I'm thoroughly enjoying DoP, and have successfully killed off dozens of characters this past week. I love playing hardcore, but I'm easily lured into OOD situations. The timed recruitment quests almost always tempt me to send my character where he or she should not go yet.

It seems unlikely at this point that I'll ever hit level 25 to be able to use the official hardcore mode. I have reached level 8 with a priest using lesser heal, but on encountering the guide on these boards I deleted that character and started one using greater heal. Apparently, heal/time is much more important to my style of play than heal/faith.

If anyone ever wants to do another hardcore challenge, I'm in even though I'm dead money.

And, of course, thanks for the wonderful game.

Welcome to the forums Mertseger. It really sounds like you don't need the official hardcore mode since you are already enforcing the same rules anyways. :)

Doing another hardcore challenge soon would be cool with me. Anyone else interested?

Do it! edit: Make it Solo Hardcore to add some spice.

Mertseger, welcome. If you want a quick road up the levels to at least unlock the other modes/difficulties you could always mod the experience chart and remove the mod after you get a character to the appropriate level. It's a hair cheatish, but if you're cheating so that you can enforce more restrictions on yourself...

If you like I can provide a file and instructions via PM.

Thanks for the offer, Delve, but I'd rather get to level 25 on easy using my normal play style. I eventually beat the normal difficulties of D1, D2, Sacred and and HG:L doing self-enforced hardcore, and so there's some chance I'll do it here. (OTOH, I never did see the Amulet of Yendor in Rogue. I may have in Nethack.)

I spent the last half of the '80's looking for the Amulet of Yendor, no luck. :(

Yeah, count me in for sure!

Man, I've never gotten past about the 5th level in most Roguelikes. Doom the Roguelike being the most recent exception.

Note that I define 'roguelike' rather strictly. :)

I kinda see DoP as continuing the traditions of roguelikes, Diablo itself was inspired by NetHack. Nothing wrong with that.

I define roguelike as the more hardcore, keyboard entry, primitive graphic games. If you loosen that definition a little to include games like Diablo, DoP, Fastcrawl, etc, then I'm not that bad at them. :)

I've beaten ADoM v1.1.1 (winbeta4) twice.
Dwarvish Priest and Hurthling Bard.

That's in about 6 years of playing....

I've peeked at it, but it ran quite slow and I haven't had the time to figure out why.

If you guys can bear with me... (Is that the right kind of bear? Words are so distracting.) I want to start a new hardcore challenge the first of June. You guys are free do do one before then, of course. :D

So... Get ready! Clean, cook, and get family time out of the way. Maybe even schedule a day off or two. We are going to ROCK! :cool:
