10 years ago that was a cool dungeon and bits of it still are, but the end is a bit dated now

Today i tackled the next dungeon on my list, The Pit beneath mino halls ! Another dungeon i was always cautious about delving and only getting so far a few times, finally went in to finish it with the reassuring words of some helpful players. The signs telling me that one portal lead to death and the other life had me REALLY worried, but it was an easy enough question. Sadly, loot was not to be had that day even in the very bottom of The Pit, in the end i found only a single history book, weee, history.

On a better note, i did finally save up 18 glass coins for my chest piece, YES ! As a LOTL i find some scavanger hunts to be much easier than others, the weapon ones are easy but the armor ones i can almost never do, without a wand of deconstruction, wish i could craft onna those ! Tomorrow i'll look over New Sosaria once again for any other dungeons i may of left unspoiled before focusing on something else like GMing crafting or exploring the new continent or maybe just leveling a bit.

P.s. that email didnt work, is this 'cat' the same as 'catherine' on the forums? if so i would like to message them !

Big entry today since its been awhile, i spent a few days as a dwarf Rogue and did some other things to lower my dying. Finally got my alchemy maxed and cartography, used a few 15 maps and only got a an mani rapier :( boo. After a few scary tests, i've decided that lightning resistance will save you from trapzaps, after testing this on multiple traps, maybe 10 trapzaps, and surviving, so hooray i dont need a rogue to help me anymore !

I uh... went on a small trip to fight some red dragons with GrandMage and well, he kind of lagged out during a fight and stuff happened
Image

poooor grandmage :( i'll be helping him get back on his feet later (without the lava) he'll know what that means XD.

I decided to finally take revenge on Angela the Phoenix, it started off as a trek to get some glowing embers from fire golems to finish my enchanting, but i figured since i was halfway there ...

On the way, wonderful things happened. First, i found a Wand of Deconstruction at long last, then on my way to the tower i found a VOG Falchion, hooray! Decided to use that with a tower shield the rest of the trip, wasnt better then my maul from what i could tell. Image

Didnt want to risk berserk mode VS the phoenix but didnt need to use tank mode this time around so that saved time. I was a little worried about what would happen when i killed the phoenix since they tend to be 'reborn', well, i got my answer to that..
Image
Yeah... i couldnt kill that egg before it re-hatched, tried this three times, maybe with a khaki potion or some glass weapons =/ so after a bit of frustration...
Image
i win, revenge is mine >:O

Didnt get any loot or experience but on my way out of the tower, i was rewarded with my first tinted arty, hooray for a productive day :D!

I thought they got rid of cows evolving into balrons.. Would be awesome if that wasn't the case though.

The statue is nice, for a stone egg that sits in my inventory, but i have a tradition in EUO, i eat my enemies. I mean, who doesnt? You train in cooking, you kill it, cook it (sometimes), eat it (always) bonuses or not, am i the only one who actually TASTES anything ? The stone phoenix egg wasnt edible at all, i tried making stone soup but it didnt take. So i had to go back to finish the job ! This time i was just going use a glass weapon on the egg after putting it to sleep with an orange potion. IT WORKED !
Image
Alas, an egg full of glass shards is not particularly edible, and no other loot was dropped :( Not even a special message or fireworks, just a dull thud and some exp, i wonder if its a quest SOMEWHERE ? Oh well, the important thing is that i killed the phoenix solo, but myself, alone, absolutely.

After hearing that i actually was in the top 10 LOTL i realized im REALLY old for my level, so the last couple days have been a lot more leveling than goofnig/exploring/eating things. I've jumped from 10th to 6th place and i'll be in 5th by tonight if the net stops to SUCK SO BAD I WANT TO KILL IT AND EAT IT.

Grinding dragons in The Suffering is all well and good, but cant do it forever, sometimes one needs to stop, somethings for something important, sometimes... friends die :(

"Is anyone else going to eat this? I dont care about the gold, really."

After getting Noobalot back on his feet and eating his corpse right infront of him, it was back to the mines, since i had found a few 14-15 maps i decided to use them while i was in the area. Maybe im just paranoid but... when digging for the hidden treasure... i think i dug... to deep ? I awoke something... in the darkness.
Image
"Something weird"

AT LAST! My very own hidden secret castle, in my personal treasure cave, it was perfect! But it was only an illusion... Damn.
Anyways the maps were busts, i got some gold and some inferior maps. So i decided to have some fun and help decorate Nordhaven.

Laughed really hard at "eating his corpse right in front of him" X-D

Hmmm.... looks pretty old school partly. I've inquired to some of my fellow DFers to see if its anyone I may know. I doubt it as the rpg scene is pretty large.

Alienware is over-rated, you could get a computer build for you that would be just as good for half the price. May not look as awesome but still.

Was that castle in the dungeon a bug or a hidden gem?
