On September 23th 2001 I won my first game of nethack. Since then I had been playing nethack for three years. I only had one character to Gehennom and only three to the castle. So here is the life of Ralf the barbarian.
Ralf the barbarian entered the dungeon of doom to find fame, fortune and the amulet of yendor.
Down he went into the darkness, but first skipped the gnomish mines.
Solved sokoban, but only got a amulet of reflection.
So he went back to get a luckstone in the gnomish mines.
He spend some time there, slaying monsters and polypiling stuff.
His cat stepped into the way of a polymorph beam and changed into a BALROG.
Uh, very good, but still no bag of holding for Ralf.
So he went back in the main dungeon to go some levels deeper.
There he discovered a pile of bones with a blessed bag of holding and some other nice stuff.
Ralf went back to identify the whole and polypile some more.
A fountain granted Ralf the first wish and he wished for a blessed gray dragon scale mail.
He also discovered a amulet of lifesaving and thus equipped went down the dungeon.
Sadly Ralf couldn't discover the entry to the croesus lair.
The balrog was killed in Gehennom by a lurker from above.
Vlad was killed and so was the wizard.
Ralf took a fast bath (frozen water got unfrozen) to get the stink of himself and continued to Moloch's lair.
The ring of conflict was a good companion and the high priest of Moloch hat the bad luck to be in a room with a cockatrice.
Ralf went back up and made a quick stop in the gnomish town to polypile some more stuff.
The elemental planes
Then he went to the elemental planes.
Earth was easy, but Air was very dangerous. Ralf died two times here, but had enough amulets of life-saving to survive.
Fire looked easy, the fire elementals couldn't harm him, but a Archon had a wand of create monsters.
The newly produced monsters each seems to have a scroll of create monster and soon Ralf was surrounded by Archons, Dragons, Giants and a lot of other nasty monsters.
Conflict and his trusty blade helped him to get rid of all of them.
When Ralf finally managed to enter the astral plane he still wore the ring of conflict, and so he was attacked by the angels of crom. When he finally managed to remove the ring (it was cursed) the angels kept attacking him, and so he just put the ring back on. Pestilence was a very dangerous opponent. There Ralf was killed the third time and even feared to be killed a fourth, but this time without a amulet of lifesaving. Fortunately the unicorn horn worked and Ralf could get another amulet of lifesaving out of his backpack in time while the angels attacked pestilence and killed him a third time.
From this time on Ralf run through the planes and, with the help of Crom, the first altar was the right one.
You offer the Amulet of Yendor to Crom... An invisible choir sings, and you are bathed in radiance..
