2:36am: 15th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 3
Day 3

I started the day back in the treasury to work off the last of my buffs from the day before. I then went to go get my food's ingredients for the day, cook 3 gnocchettis and eat them (and 2 hot wings... since I no longer make my meat maid, I make 3 reagent meals, and then eat anything I find for the last 2 fullness points... any adventures/stats I get for them is gravy).

I then dived once again into the Daily Dungen... and got my last key I needed... w00-fucking-00t.

I now still needed some meat for my 5 shore trips, so it was back to the treasury. I then went to the sewer to get trinkets for my sweet rims and dinghy planks, and hit the moxie shore. Unfortunately, I got 3 stat advs in a row (I was hoping for the barbed wire fence, or snowcone vacations), so I needed to get a dense meat stack from the treasury to keep on shoring.

I hit the Moxie shore two more times, getting some more stats and some ice-cubes... bloody useless. I like to open up the island before I take on the bonerdagon, as I like to use the remaining 9 advs of arse-a'fire elixir buff adventuring in the pirate cove trying to get as much of the pirate disguise as possible.

So it was back to the cyrpt. Unfortunately, I was running really low on meat for soda waters, so after having to run away from a mini-boss, I went back to the treasury to get some meat for soda waters.

Armed with some buffs, I hit the Defiled nook and cleansed it. I then went to the defiled alcove, where I got beaten up... so I used my beaten up advs back in the treasury. I now had a nice enough stash of soda waters, so I was able to zip through Alcove, Cranny and Niche. So off I went back to the sewers to get a trinket for a jalapeno pepper. I cooked my arse-a'fire elixir... and took on the bonerdagon. He stopped my first LTS, but let through my second... which promptly one hit killed him... I freaking LOVE the Shillelagh and LTS.

So I used the next 9 advs in the pirate cove, where I picked up the full disguise AND the guitarrr... score!

Then I was a little lost. I went to the labs, trying to get another reagent, but none dropped... so now I wanted stats, as I was just not getting enough for today. So I had a peak at the different menagerie levels, but the monsters there do not drop enough meat. So with my 10 advs left in the day, I decided (on a goof), to see how far I could go to try get my /oPoly. I got teleportis twice without getting the Plus sign... enough said.

4:13am: 15th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 2
Day 2

I started the day off in the treasury just to finish off some buffs I had on me from yesterday. Then it was off to the kitchens to get some grub. Since the Daily Dungeon was looking particularly easy (I must just say thanks to the guys and gals of Hardcore OxygeNation, who keep up a "Daily News" forum topic... helps me immensely) so I dived in and got my Boris key. W00t. Two for Two.

So i started in the Dark elbow. I got the butterknife, and went to the Dark Heart. But I ran out of meat (empathy and leash are expensive, dammit), so I had to go back to the treasury for a while. I was then back in the Dark Heart, where I got the Dodecagram... but still had not yet picked up my Wussiness potion or my Ruby W. But I moved on to the Dark heart anyway. I picked up the cnadles, and went back to the Dark heart for my NS quest items... but got beaten up. Since I still had elemental saucesphere on, I went back to the guano junction, as I still need a sonar-in-a-biscuit. I finally got it, so I went to the treasury next, and got 500 meat... so I went to the "Fun" house to try get a disease.

I was then back in the dark heart, where I finally got the W and potion I needed. So I completed the ritual, and made myself some hell ramen.

I then went to the labs to pick up a reagent.

With very few adventures left in the day, I started the cyrpt quest, but soon ran out of meat. When I got beaten up, I went to the "fun" house again, to try get a disease... but none dropped. So I once again spent the last remaining advs in the treasury getting some meat together for tomorrow's soda waters.

9th October 2005

10:45am: 15th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 1
Day 1

I am beginning to nail down my day 1's. Eat my pate, get the larva, make my jewelry (I decided this run to NOT get my usual porq bracelet, as I wanted to be using Thrust-smack and Lunging thrust-smack a lot, which will not fumble, so I got a porq necklace for the extra meat, a hamethyst necklace for the extra melee damage and a baconstone bracelet for the cheaper MP skills), get my web, my lid and stolen accordian. And, since today is a clover day, I immediately go make my epic weapon. I then do the tavern quest.

Now, onto the guano junction. I run out of meat for elemental, so I have to go to degrassi knoll for a while, to get the right amount of meat for the arena. I then do my 10 turns in the arena, and get another fucking lead necklace! I will have to go back to get my smile sharpening stone, as I feel I lost out on a 6 day ascension last time because I kept the lead necklace.

OK... So back to Degrassi knoll for some more meat, and I get beaten up. Doh! But I can hit the sewers for my beaten up advs. Then back to Degrassi where I pick up the last item I need to make my BMC.

So now I go back to the Guano junction, as I am still short some sonars. I eventually get three sonars, and a baseball, so I am still one sonar short. I decide to open up my guild store, get some wereseal blood and take on the Bossbat. Of course, using the medicinal herb BEFORE getting into the fight would have been a good idea. So I got beaten up again. So I decide to go to the guano junction for my three beaten up advs, to try get the last sonar I need. No go. So I go back and beat up the boss bat.

I still had 5 advs of elemental left, so i tried to get my 4th sonar AGAIN... and AGAIN I got no joy. But I did pick up some meat, so I went back to the arena and finally got my smile sharpening stone.

It was now time to forget items, and start pounding on the stats and meat. So I went to the treasury. I had quite a bit of meat, and decided to try ONE adventure in the "fun" house, just in case I got the disease, but got an acid shooting flower instead. Well, that will be handy for the final battle.

I then tried the Daily dungeon, but got stuck at a locked door. So I went into the misspelled cemetary and got 2 skeleton keys. But I was out of meat, so I went to the "fun" house to try get some meat and a disease... I got little of the former, and none of the latter. So I went back to finish the Daily dungeon, where I got a Sneaky Pete's key.

I now needed to get my food for the day, so i went to the sewer, and got a trinket, and went to the beanbat chamber and got 2 enchanted beans. I then cooked and ate my ISEBB and some boring spaghetti.

I then hit the harem, and got my disguise very quickly. So I burned a clover and got my perfume. And I then took out the Goblin King in one try... I LOVE Lunging Thrust-Smack.

The rest of the day I spent in the Treasury getting stats and meat.

3:30am: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 7
Day 7

Today sucked... today sucked SO badly, I was almost in tears. No... not really. Well... almost... 79 advs I had to break the record. Should have been easy. It took me just 30 advs to get to level 11, get my digital key and start to ascend. The NS quest can normally be done in around 20-25 advs, barring any bad back farming you need to do for Tower Monster combat items.

I went into the tower missing THREE of the TWELVE items that can be used. I had to back farm ALL THREE MONSTER ITEMS!! ALL THREE!!!

It made me ascend in 65 adventures. SIXTY-FIVE adventures.

So I quickly used the last of my buffs in the castle. Then I got, made and ate my food. I only made 2 reagent dish foods, as I wanted to keep a reagent back, just in case.

So I then went to the castle, and hit 2 Moxie stat advs in a row and got to level 11. So I went to the 8-bit realm and got 2 more Red pixel potions, and a digital key.

That took 30 advs.

Now I started ascending...

I zapped one of my other keys into my Boris key, as I wanted to keep my Boris ring for the NS fight.

So the golems only took 3 advs, and getting the key and opening the door another 2 adventures. Kewl.

I decided to take my lime with me for my first 4 tower fights, and my mosquito for the last 2 tower fights and the shadow fight.

Floor 2, and I get the beer batter... dammit... Put on my drop familiar and it took me FIFTEEN advs to get the baseball.

Floor 4, and I got the easel... dammit fuck... On goes the drop familiar again, and it took me eight advs to get the disease.

Floor 5, and Kaaewen gets to laugh at me. So since I had at least 1 definate zap left in the wand, I thought I'd go get the white picket fence. A mere 23 advs later, and I zapped and exploded my white picket fence and wand (in that order). I should have levelled up my other familiars here... I'll remember for next time.

So with the tower complete, I took on the Shadow. The first familiar I needed to level was my mosquito, the second was my lime... so it only took me 1 adv to get past both familiars.

I now had 2 advs left in the day, and I needed at least 1 adventure to ascend. So, I decided to eat up to full (so my Chronic indigestion was at full strength). Since I was going to eat anyway, I might as well get the most amount of advs as i could, so I made my last reagent pasta dish and ate it.

I then had this for a fight... (talk about the RNG love... finally, something went my way)

8th October 2005

2:33am: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 6
Day 6 - Myst Day

I honestly do not know if I want to ascend today. If I did, I would be forced to do a Myst ascension (it would probably be a sauceror ascension, which would end after the muscle days, so I would then do an AT run to use the Scarf effectively)... and I really want to do 2 Seal Clubber runs right after each other (to get Rage of the reindeer and thrust-smack, in that order... but now I think I will get it the other way around, as I NEED a low level, low MP, always hit attack early on in my ascension, and since I'll have the shillelagh on my second ascension I do not need rage right from the start).

So I did my 10 advs of Izchak's Blessing fueled advs for the first 10 advs of the day. Then, because of other buffs that last 20 advs, I then spent some advs in the 8-bit realm. I then got ingredients and then made my food. And then I ate the food.

I then tried to adventure as a Muscle class in the castle with the shillelagh (and the talons, and Hamethyst necklace). While I was surviving, it was costing me WAY too much in healing (as I was not able to do a one hit kill, I would need rage of the reindeer to be able to do that). So I brought the MCD down to 00 for the first time, and adventured as a moxie class, DFSing the monsters to get them low enough for me to have a long combat with them. Once I had the strategy worked out, I pushed the MCD back up to 10, and continued adventuring in the castle.

While adventuring in the castle, I picked up 2 wolf masks... so if I do not make it to being able to ascend today, at the end of the day I will zap one to make the furry suit.

When I finally got my second chore wheel, I went straight to the Hole in the Sky. I had still not yet gotten a moxie stat adventure (although I had gotten 2 muscle stat advs).

For the Hole in the Sky, since I had no reagent potions, I used my 3 ! potions to give me Izchak's Blessing, I used all my candy (except for 1 piece I held back for the NS quest) and A few other small bonuses (spikey hair, can of hair gel, moxious madrigal, etc). I also used my drop familiar, as it is more important to me to get through the Hole in the Sky as fast as possble then to get stats. I can get better stats in the castle, so I prefer to adventure there for stats after I finish in the HitS.

Well, it only took me 25 advs to get all the lines, stars and maps I needed for my three star items.

So I went back to the Castle where I got the stat whell really quickly and moved it back to the Moxie advs. I now had a few more moxie points to get. Needing about 20 advs left over to ascend, I was hoping that if I got enough Moxie stat advs in the 16 advs between now and when the last 20 for the day started, I could ascend today...

Well... I got FIVE chore wheel advs, and only ONE moxie stat adventure in the remaining THIRTY-SIX adventures for the day!

Even after donating again, I was still 3 Moxie stat points short...

... and I was short my digital key... doh!

So I zapped my wolf mask into a furry pants, and waited for tomorrow.

I'll definately ascend tomorrow. I have now done 779 advs. The current HC Teetotaler Disco Bandit record at the time was 7 days and 858 adventures. That gives me 79 advs to ascend to beat the record. Surely, not a problem. If I *do* do it, that will be the second HC Teetotaler record I broke in successive ascensions (having beaten the seal clubber record by a full day in my ascension before this one). Now, I like *not* being on the leaderboards... but the diamond in me also likes the fact that I could be there, if I wanted to.

7th October 2005

7:27pm: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 5
Day 5

I started the day by getting my food sorted out. Once that was done, I took 10 advs in the peak to get some meat for the day, and then went to the Daily dungeon... and got a Jarlseberg earring.

Since I missed doing the DD on day 1 AND day 2, I knew I would have to get the wand to get through this ascension, so I decided to go get it today, so that I could use it twice and still have 1 more definately zap if I got the cow. So I hit the greater-than dungeon and managed to get teleportis after I got the plus sign... yay! Then I got the oracle on my first adventure of teleportis... so I played out the other 4 advs, and went into the Dungeon of Doom. And fourteen advs later, I had my wand... whew... relatively painless. So I zapped my Jarlseberg earring, and got a Jarlseberg Key.

I now really wanted to get to level 10 quickly, so I donated 40K to the Hall of legends for my moxie. Some more adventures at the peak, and I donated another 10K. I was now really counting the advs to get to level 10. And I was blowing most of my meat (and not in that good way, either). A few more advs at the peak, and some more donating. I went to the sewer quickly (No idea why... probably to get trinkets for clovers for food later) and did a few more advs in the peak and i was finally at level 10.

I jumped straight to the PFA, and was completely through it in 30 turns. I had not picked up many items, so I had to use them sparingly. My Moxie was well over 130, so I was surviving quite easily with the MCD at 11. I also bought Disco Face stab, to quickly drop the power of monsters, so I could survive a long moxie fight with them.

Of course, I got beaten up in the second fight I had in the Castle. I had misread my left over HP. So then I buffed up again, and spent 10 advs in the castle. But I got no chore wheels, or stat advs.

If I want to ascend tomorrow, I will need to get 12 points in my muscle, 9 in my myst and a whopping 16 in my moxie. Doable, but I'll need a lot of moxie stat advs in the castle after I finish in the HitS. My main problem, though, is that I have NO spare reagents for my HitS advs. This is a problem.

So I started experimenting with my ! potions. I managed to find my Moxie potion without getting a bad one that would affect tomorrow's adventuring (I found the Myst reducing potion). And I got very lucky as I had 3 left after using the one I had experimented with. Whew.


Once again, the entire day was spent with the MCD at 11.

6th October 2005

4:11am: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 4
Day 4 - St Sneaky Pete's Day

So I was out of reagent food ingredients, so I needed for today to be a clover day. My heart sank when I found out it was not a clover day... but rejoiced when Jick put clovers in to the hermit at the insistence of folks wanting to take advantage of St Sneaky Pete's day. Whew... I got lucky there.

So my first stop was the sewers, and I lucked out. Seven trinkets from 10 tries... my kind of day. Unfortunately, the 4 grab bags I got were pretty barren, and I only eneded up getting 4 mushrooms. Bugger. And, to make matters worse, I clicked once too many and wasted an adventure in the kitchens. So I made my gnocchettis and ate them and some hot wings, and got down to adventuring at the icy peak.

I did 10 advs (I buff myself 10 advs at a time, and hope I make enough meat in those 10 advs to afford the soda waters to buff myself for the next 10 advs) as if I was a Seal clubber... Crown of the goblin king, shillelagh, boss bat britches, boris ring, hamethyst necklace and a shiny ring. There is nothing better than one hit killing yetis with a well placed Lunging thrust smack. Unfortunately, at between 2-3 soda waters PER combat, this was proving to be fairly expensive. So while I was making meat, I was not making as much meat as I wanted to be making. I can not wait to be back doing Myst class ascensions, as they are so much cheaper to run, thanks to the MMJs.

A quick detour into the Daily Dungeon got me my first key... I was lucky it was a Sneaky pete's key, as I could now donate for my main stat.

Back to the icy peak for another 10 advs, and I was at level 9 (I actually got to level 9 before the 10 advs were up, but I did not need all the buffs for the Pirate cove, so while i had them on, I continued at the peak).

The pirate cove took a little longer than i like, but once I had the diguise, the dictionery dropped very quickly.

It was then on to the orc Chasm, where I was able to make both scrolls, get 2 lowercase n's and get some other items I needed in only 32 advs. The rest of the day was spent at the icy peak, where I finally had enough moxie (after using my stat script and strange leaflet) to play the Icy peak as a moxie class (with the MCD at 11), and take no damage... so it was all profit from there. Which I then promptly spent on skills, and a TON of soda waters.

And what did I do with those soda waters??? Did I get my 3 reagents for today? No... no I did not. Bugger fuck. If this had been anything except a Moxie ascension I would have been in HUGE trouble. As it is, I got lucky, and was able to do without my three spare reagents (which I get on day 1) this ascension.

Once again, the whole day was done with the MCD at 11.

5th October 2005

3:39am: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 3
Day 3

Today was a bad day... I really wanted to get through the mountain quest quickly so I could get to the Icy Peak as fast as possible, but ended up getting caught trying to get my ores, cheeses and frigid ninja stars. In fact, I ended up using my frozen gravy fairy way too much today. I could have made level 9 if I had not been held up by the damn ores and goats.

Anyway, I made 2 hell ramens from my last 2 hellion cubes. I then figured I'd get a cheese and make a fettucini from that, for my last reagent dish for the day. I had hoped to be able to farm the goatlet a little more as I was getting ready to take on the icy peak for extra cheeses, but that did not happen.

I did the Daily Dungeon early in the day, and got a Boris Ring. That might be helpful later, but for now it is completely useless.

I then finished up getting the miner disguise and hit the mines in disguise... and they hit back... hard. It took 19 advs to get my 3 linoleum ores, and I was beaten up for most of them. Luckily I was able to continue adventuring in the mines while beaten up.

So, after a quick detour to the 8-bit realm to remove some beaten up effects, it was off to the goatlet. I tried to get as many cheeses as I could before making my fettuccini, but in the end I had to make the fettuccini without getting all the cheeses. So I was still stuck in the goatlet. So I got out my Frozen gravy fairy, and it still took me 26 advs to get the last of the cheeses I needed.

Then it took forever to get the frigid ninja stars. I finally had 4 advs at the peak (where I finally got to use my shillelagh), and the day was over.

Very dissappointing.

Once again, the entire day was played with the MCD at 11, even the 4 advs at the peak in the end.

4th October 2005

2:17am: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 2
Day 2 - Moxie (2)

With the hellion cubes I got yesterday, today I did not need to get any ingredients. I made and ate 2 hell ramens, and then got back to the task of getting my Stomach of Steel. I got the Dodecagram pretty quickly, but still did not have a wussiness potion. So i went on to the other areas (going back to the treasury every few advs to afford to heal and rebuff).

I had done a few advs when I checked if today was a clover day... and it was. So I immediately went about getting my epic weapon. The nice thing about that, is that it has 2 uses... one for adventuring, and one in the NS quest.

Once my Disco Banjo was made, I went back to the DFF quest. It was much easier, as the Moxie boost now meant I was not being hit at all. I quickly got the other 2 items, but had to go back to the Dark Neck to get a wussiness potion before I completed the ritual. This is because it is more effective to adventure in the Dark Neck for the wussiness potion as only 3 of the 7 monsters in the Copse are in the Dark Neck. I eventually got the wussiness potion (and 2 more hellion cubes) and then completed the ritual. At that point I made my third Hell ramen and ate it.

I then went straight to cleansing the cyrpt, which I did in 23 advs. I then used my bonerdagon cheast, as it was my class' stat day.

I then went back to complete some back quests. The harem FINALLY gave up some harem pants, and I immediately killed the goblin King. I then went back to Degrassi Knoll and got my Meat car. Then off to the sewers to be able to get the rims and some planks, and then off to the moxie shore to get the 5 trips out of the way, while still on a Moxie day (and while I was level 8, and the stat gains were good). Four stat advs and some ice cubes... bleh.

Since I was past level 8, I started the mountain quest, and got a pair of mining pants from the 2 advs I had left.

I then realised something... I had not gone to the Daily Dungeon today. Unless I am extremely lucky, I will almost definately need to get a wand of polymorph this ascension.

Except for the one adventure against the bonerdagon, the entire day was done with the MCD at 11.

3rd October 2005

8:31pm: 14th Ascension, Hardcore Disco Bandit (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 1
Day 1 - Moxie (1)

OK... the day started out as usual. Ate my Pates, got the larva, made my jewelery (porq bracelet, porq necklace and a ham necklace), got my web and lid, got my stolen accordian, finished the typical tavern quest and then went to the arena. Now, I usually level up my drop familiar for 9 advs, then swop in my bitten for the last fight to get the stone and then, later in the ascension, I level up my drop familiar again and swop in a Muscle sign fairy for the last fight to be assured of getting a lead necklace. Now, on this run, I did not want to waste that last fight, so I used my Muscle sign fairy as my drop familiar. Which would have worked out great if I had not gotten a lead necklace when I won my 10th fight with my bitten. As I am writing this, I am 1 day away from ascending, and that will be my 7th day. I think I missed a 6 day ascension right here.

Anyway... I got my sonars (getting the asshat really helped me afford to keep my familiar buffs going... as i did not need to power my elemental buff), and attacked the boss bat... but had forgotten to reset the mind control device off 11. So I had to run away and re-attack him. I then got my Enchanted beans, and made my ISEBB and boring spaghetti and ate them.

I now had 79 advs left in the day. Since I have stopped trying to get my chef, the rest of the day was ALL about stat point gains. So I started in the treasury, where the stats were decent, and helped me afford my buffs.

After opening my guild store, I decided to go do the Goblin king quest. But the Harem was ridiculous. In my first few advs I got a choice adventure, so I got the veil. I then picked up 1 more veil from a combat, but never got another choice adventure for 24 advs. So I gave up and decided I should try get my stomach of steel. Well, I got 3 hellion cubes, but none of the items needed to help the Friars.

With the last three advs of the day, I went back to the harem... where I picked up another veil... yeesh.

2:11am: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 7
Day 7 - Moxie Day (1)

Will this be the last day, or will I be denied again? There was a LOT to do today (and I had stupidly forgotten to equip my chrome sword, so i was 3 advs short)... Get a DD key (or wand, if the DD was a bitch), get all my pixels (and I had not gotten many during the ascension, as I had not been beaten up during my mining), get 7 Muscle points, NOT get the Cow... and then beat the NS...

I honestly did not know if I could do it by the end of the day.

I started by only eating 2 reagent dishes. This gave me a spare reagent, in case I needed it for the golems, or the shadow. I then hit the 8-bit realm. I decided to go get my pixels first, as I still needed stat points, so at least I was getting stat points while I got my pixels.

Once I had the right number of pixels, I did the daily dungeon... all I needed was a sneaky pete's key, and i was golden... and I got my third Sneaky pete's breath spray. Bugger. This meant I had to go get my wand of polymorph. I got lucky. It only took 7 advs to get both the plus sign AND then teleportis. The Oracle came up on the second teleportis adventure. I then SGEAA'ed away the remaining teleportis advs, and hit the Dungeon of Doom, where I seriously lucked out and got the mimic on the third adv. Just 12 advs to get the wand. Awesome.

I was now still a few muscle points short of level 11. So I went back to the castle in the sky, and was able to turn the chore wheel on my 2nd adv to the muscle stat advs. It took just 21 more advs in the castle, while I got 4 muscle advs to get to level 11. I then dialed the MCD to 0. All my stats were where they had to be, so no need making life more difficult for myself, as I now had 24 advs left (plus a reagent and 8 fullness points to go) with which to ascend. With goofballs, and other little buffs (like candy, spikey hair, etc) I got past the golems pretty easily. I was taking damage, but killing them with a lunging thrust-smack and then a thrust-smack.

Now it was all up to the tower monsters... if I could avoid the easel and the cow, I was home free...

Well, today was a day of destiny... no easel, no cow.

The arena took twice as long as it should have (read: 4 advs ... I love having all the familiar skills) and then I was up against the NS.

I got out my trusty dodecapede, and took her on. For my first fight, I had on:
Crown of the goblin King
Wand
Boss Bat britches
SS Solitaire
Amulet of Plot significance
Acid squirting flower

And got my ass handed to me by the first form (see below).

So I ate the rest of my spare food and tried to go get a second wolf mask, to turn into furry pants. But after 10 advs, I did not get it (and I was mindful of the number of advs I had been using... I did not want to go over 900)... so I went to the peak with my meat vorteices to get some more meat, and decided to change my tactics.

So I changed up my outfit, like so, and tried again:
Wolf mask
Wand
Boss Bat britches
SS Solitaire
Walrus Tusk Earring
Acid squirting flower

And got beaten by the 2nd form (well, she did heal herself twice... that did not help).

So I tested out the theory that if you let her beat you up a few times she gets easier. I let her beat me up 4 more times, and I was at 899 advs spent. I now had 1 more adventure with which to beat her.

And the bitch is dead.

Since today was the first moxie day, I wanted to take advantage of having two stat days in a row, so I chose to ascend as a DB for the following reasons:
1) 2 Moxie days in a row means I can get to level 8 by the end of day 2, and to the peak by the end of day 3
2) I need to pick up nimble fingers to more easily afford the soda waters to keep my buffs active.
3) Since I will be using the shillelagh, I can use the ye olde golde frontes to boost my muscle.

So I ascended as a teetotaling Disco Bandit born under the opussum sign.

2nd October 2005

11:35pm: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 6
Day 6

This is the part of the ascensions that I find most tedious... the pounding away and the attempt to get as many stat points as possible.

The only interesting part is deciding on the best strategy to surviving for long periods in the high areas. But this was made very easy for me, as my Lunging Thrust-Smacks did a ton of damage (I love the ridiculously Huge Sword... best sword that naturally drops in the game), and then I could finish off with a Thrust-smack. And, since I was using a stainless steel solitaire, it was hella cheap as well.

Of course, since today was a negative wereseal blood day, I could not get away with 2 thrust-smacks, so I did take quite a bit of damage, but I still did not use up all my medicianl herbs for the day.

Yesterday, I had done 13 advs in the PFA without getting an immateria. Today, I did 3 advs, ate and picked up the 4 immaterias and the SOCK in about 15 advs... I had to still adventure in the PFA to get the torpedo. When I got it, I went straight to the castle.

At the castle, I was pretty lucky, and had my items by the time I needed them. When I got my last item I needed to do the giant map I used the giant map and got my quantum egg. I was then setting myself up to go to the HitS, but instead of clicking on my familiar link, to go get my drop familiar, I clicked on the last adventure adventure link, and got beaten up. So Used my beaten up advs on a detour to the Sewer to get trinkets for arse-A'fire elixirs. I made 3, and took them, and then prayed I could get all the lines, stars and maps I needed in the 30 advs. It took just 27 advs to make my three star items.

When my arse-a'fire effect ran out, I went back to the castle where I was able to move the chore wheel back around once (I need to move it again to get it back to the muscle advs).

Tomorrow I have a little problem... I still need to get 7 Muscle points to ascend (today's chore wheel advs brought my moxie up, so both my secondaries are sorted out), AND I need to get my pixels. I am also short one of the Dungeon keys, so I may have to go get the wand of polymorph tomorrow, if the DD is a bitch (today I got my second Breath Spray... I used to kill for them, now I die when I get one).

The whole day was spent with the MCD at 11. The lunging thrust-smack is an always hit skill, so you do not need attack stats ABOVE the defence of monsters, you just need a weapon that does a lot of damage.

1st October 2005

4:25am: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 5
Day 5

Today was still fairly easy. I was still getting a bonus from my wereseal bloo, so I was able to finish off the orc Chasm and get back to the Peak. I was not able to pick up any talons or any 1337 trousers, which will hurt me towards the end of the game, but I did not want to waste any more time in the orc chasm.

The Daily dungeon gave me the first of my 3 breath sprays I was going to get this ascension.

I then hit the peak for the bulk of the day's advs, and donated most of my wealth away to get to 84 muscle... I keep forgetting level 10 is at 85. So I had to go back to the peak to get some more meat to donate. I got really close, so i only needed one more adv in the peak to get to level 10.

I then started the Penultimate Fantasy Airship, which was both irritating and good. Irritating was that in 26 adventures I got no immateria, but good in that I got an amulet of plot significance and a ridiculously huge sword (with my last adventure of the day). That will make my LTSs a little more effective tomorrow, when I have no Wereseal bonus.

3:38am: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 4
Day 4 - Myst Day

OK... started the day by getting my food ingredients. Then I used the last of my buffs at the peak, and made and ate some food.

I then was able to afford my wereseal blood, and was able to pump the MCD back up to full. A detour to the DD got me a useless earring. So I went to the peak until I got to level 9, and then I went to the shore to get my dingy plans, and the sewer to get a trinket for some dingy planks. Then I did the pirate cove, and got an acoustic guitarrr, which will save me a worthless trinket. Two advs to get my dictionery, and the rest of the day in the orc Chasm. I decided to make my 31337 scroll first, so I could use it on a stat day. I also used my other stat bonus today as well... the one you get at level 9.

Today, I had wereseal on the entire day (well, when it was needed) and it was the day when you could do 2 skilled attacks before the monsters could attack, so I took no damage the entire day.

2:50am: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 3
Day 3

Day three was a decent day... I started out by doing a load of things I needed to get done before continuing. I got the mine disguise incredibly quickly (choice adv, combat, combat that dropped a piece of the outfit, choice adv), then I went to the Daily Dungeon, and picked up a second key... w00t.

I was then able to do the Mine in disguise WITHOUT getting beaten up. Which was actually a pity, as I wanted to go pixel farming. I then cooked my food, and ate it. I went to the labs to try pick up a reagent or two, but struck out... so I went to the arena to level my pixie, and get a lead necklace. Then back again to the labs, this time with my pixie, and eventually got ONE reagent... bleh.

So I started on the goatlet, and managed to finish it fairly quickly, with only a minor hiccup. My first adv at the ninja snowmen beat me up, so I used that time to make my asbestos sword. When I went back, I had forgotten to heal up to max, so got beaten up again... so I made my chrome sword (for rollover). I then healed back up to full, and took on the ninja snowmen a third time, and beat the first one I found... and took his ninja stars.

I then dialed the MCD back down to 0 for the first time this ascension, and hit the peak til the end of the day.

28th September 2005

5:23pm: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 2
Day 2

Clover Day!! W00t. I made my epic weapon first thing. Then i beat up on the Boss bat. I could have done it yesterday, I must have just forgotten to do it. I then made 3 SwS, but forgot I did not have my stomach of steel yet, so I was only able to eat 2 of them. I wanted to boost my muscle as fast as possible.

Then I went to the harem, and got a perfume and my disguise, but I did not feel ready to take on the goblin King, so I went to go get my Stomach of Steel. I literally FLEW through the DFF quest, finishing it in 21 advs, with my wussiness potion and my ruby W. So I finished the ritual and ate my 3rd SwS, and some hot wings.

I was now powerful enough to beat the goblin King, and took him out.

So Now I started cleansing the cyrpt. Once i had cleansed the nook, I went to the DD, and got a Jarlseberg Key. W00t. I then proceeded to cleanse the remaining three defiled areas of the cyrpt rather quickly. Then I went to go get a jalaepno pepper for an arse-a'fire elixir. I finally got one, and cooked it, and took it... and stomped all over the bonerdagon. I used the chest immediately, as I needed the 3000 meat.

I then went to the labs for a few advs, and when i finally got to level 8, I spent the rest of the day in the sewers, where i had an amazing run of worthless trinkets, that setup this entire ascension.

Once again, the entire day except for three advs was run with the MCD at 11. What is killing me, is the lack of meat... I wish raising the monster level raised the meat it dropped... oh well, one of my ideas that was never used...

27th September 2005

11:59pm: 13th Ascension, Hardcore Seal Clubber (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 1
Day 1 - Muscle Day (2)

I must say, I really like the first day of an ascension, then I hate it until I get to the Yetis and can start affording some skills, and some breathing space.

So I got 3 porq stones, and 2 bacons stones. Since my solitaire will make skills cheaper, there is no reason to get the baconstone bracelet, so I sold off three of the stones and easily made my 2 usual porq bracelet and necklace. I then went to go get the larva, and went off to the arena, and got my stone.

Eight adventures later, i had my web and my lid, so off I went to go get my chef.

Chef's hat took 20 advs to drop. Ouch. I then seriously needed the Stolen accordian, so off I went to the sewers, and managed to get one. Then it was off to the guano junction where I got everything I needed in just 17 advs. A quick detour to the bean bat chamber for 2 enchnated beans, and I was back to getting my chef...

Nine advs in the "fun house later", and I was no closer to box or a disease. So I went to go open my guild store, and then went back to the "fun" house... another 10 advs and still nothing. I had now spent 39 advs trying to get my chef, and only had 1 piece of it. So I decided to drop trying to get my chef. In fact, I have now officially dropped it from my ascension strategy. So I cooked my ISEBB and at it, and went to Degrassi Knoll, and got my BMC.

I then took a detour to the kitchens to get a tomato for my boring spaghetti, but did not manage to get one. So I made a burrito from my second enchanted bean, and ate that.

I then realised I had not yet done the tavern quest... so I ended the day killing rats.

I almost got to level 7, since I had the MCD at 11 the entire day.

8:53pm: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 8
Day 8

Ok... I figure that with my 3 familiar skills and the lead necklace I can start the NS quest and ascend within 20 advs (5 advs for the golems, 2 to get to the tower, 6 for the tower monsters and the shadow is 14... giving 6 advs to beat the NS, or possibly back farm for missing monster items). This means that I can now actually ascend on the day I do my pixel farming.

Let's see if my theory holds...

I am still far behind on my Myst stat (muscle is over 70, and Moxie is just 2 away, so they are fine). So with my last three advs of arse-A'fire effect, I went to the Hole in the sky. Then I made some food and ate it. I only used 12 of my fullness points, as I did not have any other ingredients for any other food. If i need more advs, I'll probably hit the goatlet with my bugbear.

So... I start my pixel farming early, as I want to get that out of the way... and finish in 4 turns. I guess getting beaten up in the mines is not such a bad thing. It was then off to the castle to try pump my Myst stat. Eventually, I got the chore wheel again, and with only 1 candle adventure, I finally get to level 11. A quick sidestep to the sewer to get some trinkets for peppers for arse-a'fire elixirs, and i am golden to start the NS quest. I have 23 advs left (though I could eat a lot more).

It takes 4 advs at the golems to get enough maze maps to find the key (1 adv) and open the tower (another adv). Six tower monsters, six kills... I was only missing the baseball, and the beer batter did not come up... of course, I had the fence and the cow did not come up... typical. Interstingly enough, for the first 4 combats, I took my potato (just in case) and my mosquito for the next 2, and the shadow combat.

I easily got past the shadow, and went to the first familiar with my 20 pound potato... and it was the familiar I needed... w00t. The second familiar I needed was a goat, so I took it to the arena and lost the first contest, but won the second and it gained a level making it an effective level 20.

So off to the NS I went... with 8 advs left in the day.

I lost the first fight, breaking my streak... but beat her the second time. Below is the blow-by-blow of the winning combat.

26th September 2005

4:28am: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 7
Day 7 - Muscle Day (1)

Started the day by cooking my food. Then I went to the Daily Dungeon and got my missing Sneaky pete's key!! Yay!! No need for a wand!!

So I ate my food and buffed up for the day. I started off back in the Fantasy airship to get the metallic A. Once I had gotten that, I went to the castle, where it was either 2 weapons of the pastalord, or a weapon of the pastalord and a cone of whatever. I only messed up the one time and got beaten up, but otherwise it was a pretty successful strategy. Since I had springy fusilli and the bonerdagon necklace, I was winning initative every time.

When I had finally gotten through the castle, I went to the sewer to get some jalapeno peppers for some arse-a'fire elixirs. Eleven advs only got me 3 trinkets. So I made 3 arse-a'fire elixirs, and got all my star items in the final 27 advs of the day. My strategy was to get a huge muscle bonus, and a big initiative bonus, and using my linoleum staff (with no spirit of rigatoni) to do about 80-90 points of damage on the first hit, and then the same on the second meant I took no damage at all.

3:35am: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 6
Day 6

During my Orc Chasm run yesterday I got an extra 30669 scroll, and was one 334 scroll short of a 2nd 31337 scroll. So I decided that I would do 15 advs in the orc Chasm to try get the 2nd 334 scroll, to get trinkets. It took just 11 advs to get the 31337 scroll made.

And I seriously scored from my 2 grab bags, getting only 1 spice, but getting 2 sausages and 4 mushrooms. This gives me enough stuff for 2 full days of eating, and 1 day of 2 reagent dishes. So, since it will be muscle day in 2 days time, I'll make 3 gnochetti's today, and make my SwS's tomorrow.

So after I ate, I went to the DD... and got a Sneaky pete's breath spray... doh, so close. If I do not get the sneaky pete's key tomorrow, I may have to get the wand. I dislike being forced into getting the wand... honestly.

So off to the icy peak I went. I started off with the MCD at it's lowest setting, but it was getting VERY boring, and I was not getting any where near enough stats. So I pumped it up to eleven, and started taking them on as a myst character. I'd hit the yetis with a combo of a spell and chronic indigestion, then heal and replenish MP every few fights. I was still making more meat then I was spending, and was able to donate 20K to Myst and then it only took me 1 more adv to go to level 10, and then I was able to instantly buy Weapon of the pastalord.

I then did 23 advs in the penultimate fantasy airship, where I was able to get my SOCK, but I was still missing a metallic A. I'll have to get that tomorrow.

Day 5

OK... I still need 2 of my DD keys... so first thing I did this morning was use the last of my buffs to dive into the dungeon... and I got a Jarlesberg Key. I then made the 3 fettucinis and ate them. This allowed me to buff up for the day.

So a mere 20 advs later, I had completed my goat cheese collecting. Then on to the pirate cove for my pants. Once I had that, I needed to level up to level 9, so I went to go get my frigid ninja stars, and once i got them, I went to far goat cheeses for food for later on in my ascension.

When I finally got to level 9, it took me 8 advs to get my dictionery. It was then on to the orc Chasm for the rest of the day. I managed to get all my scrolls, my lowercase Ns, a f3d0r4 and a meat vortex.

23rd September 2005

2:31am: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 4
Day 4

Since i was level 8, it was time to start the mountain quest. Off to the mines and in 4 advs, I got the pants and mattock. Then I realised I needed to go get food... so I went to the kitchens, and from the 2 grab bags, I got 3 spices and a sausage. So, combined with the one sausage i still had, I made 2 spaghetti with Skullheads, and decided to eat a fettucini with the first goat cheese I got.

Once I had eaten, I went back to the mine where I got the helmet very quickly. Now, it was an apathetic lizardman as the first fight in the DD today. So I wanted to get beaten up once, then use up three of the 4 beaten up advs in the 8-bit realm, and on my last adv of beaten up, use the decorative fountain to further reduce my muscle and then attack the lizard man. Even if I got the jump on him, I was confident I would miss him, which would allow me to Chronic Indigestion him to death... thus avoiding the apathy effect. The first adventure in the mine in disguise I got beaten up. I then pulled off the plan above perfectly, and completed the daily dungeon and got another fucking boris key.

Then the odessey of pain began... 6 advs later, i was beaten up again... so back to the 8-bit realm for 4 advs. TWO advs later I was back in the 8-bit realm for a further 4 advs. FOUR advs later... yep, BACK in the 8-bit realm. TWO advs later... 8-bit realm time again. I finally go through the mine... man, I fucking hate that part of the mountain quest.

Then it was off to the goatlet. When I got my first goat cheese, I made my fettucini. I then took on goats for the rest of the day and ended up with just 5 cheeses. Since I'll be eating 3 of them tomorrow (if it is a non-clover day) that is an effective 2 cheeses from 61 advs.

22nd September 2005

3:48pm: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 3
Day 3 - Myst Day

You know... I am really not working out these stat days properly. It's best to have your stat day RIGHT at the beginning of your run, or right at the end. These inbetween stat days suck.

Anyway... since I cooked most of my food yesterday, I cooked once to make my gnochetti, and then chowed down on some hell ramens and the gnochetti.

I then went to go level up in the labratory, where I picked up 4 reagents. Then one trip to the shore to get my planks. I decided to spend 20 advs in the hippy camp as the stats were not terrible (though not the best), and I'd like to pick up one set of herbs for a KF Crossbow. But NOTHING dropped in 20 advs... well, nothing useful.

So off I went to the goblin king, to get his cape. Once that was stolen, I went off to undefile the cyrpt. I SPED through the defiled areas, but then realised I had no fruit for my reagent. So I went to the Lemon party (thanks Riff!) to try get a cherry or orange. After 11 advs, I had some Jumbo Olives (which are of NO use), some lemons and some limes... crap. So I tried to use an equilibrium juice, but with the bonerdagon now deflecting spells, I needed to normal attack it to death.

So I did the Daily Dungeon while I still had my equilibrium effect on, and then I went to the menagerie level 1, and picked up a cherry... w00t.

And with some moxisity potion effect on, the bonerdagon was toast.

I then spent the rest of my potioned effect advs at the pirate cove, and the rest of the day levelling up in the labs, where I picked up another reagent.

21st September 2005

10:19am: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 2
Day 2

CLOVERS !!!

Finally. OK, I have one trinket, which I will use to get food. Then I'll go get another 2, for my R&R Legend. And I only got some spices and 2 wads of dough from the first grab bag... dammit. OK, BIG sewer run, and then I can see where to go from there. zOMG... Seven trinkets from 10 trips... w00t. I got 6 clovers, and 1 hot buttered roll.

I went back to the lucky kitchens, and got two grab bags, which were thankfully full with real food. Then I was planning to make and eat 3 spaghetti with skulheads, but I still wanted to try get my chef, so I went to the outskirts of Cobb's Knob... but I had forgotten to CLOSET MY CLOVERS! Dammit. So I closeted my remaining clovers, and went back to the outskirts of cobb's knob. After 14 advs, I officially gave up. I will now do this run without a chef... and may Jick have mercy on my soul.

I then made 3 spaghetti with skullheads... and tried to eat them all, forgetting I do not have my stomach of steel yet. Then I had a bit of a brain fart. I am so used to trying to get to the hippies as soon as possible, I forgot I have decided not to even go there until I have my stomach. But I went to the shore anyway, for the 4 trips I could afford, and got a barbed wire fence. w00t.

I decided to start the DFF quest now. I got through it fairly quickly, and went back to do the Goblin King quest. But the choice adv was just not coming up. So I eventually had to stop trying (seeing as I only actually want to kill him tomorrow, on my stat day), and I went to the Daily Dungeon. A locked door near the end forced me to use my one skeleton key, which broke, but at least I got a Boris Key.

I then took my bugbear shamen to the arena for 9 fights, but instead of getting it's item for the 10th fight, I took one of my muscle sign gravy fairies, as I actually wanted to ensure I got a lead necklace. In the latter parts of the game, I will be able to easily afford the bugbear shamen's increased MP costs, and I'll want the extra stat points the lead necklace provides. This also means, that with my familiar skills, I will need a mere 2 advs to level up my familiars at the end of the NS quest (Sympathy + Empathy + leash + lead Necklace = 18... and 1 fight for 5 kills will make the familiar 2 pounds... thus 20 pounds total).

I am banking 8 advs for tomorrow.

My plan for tomorrow is: Get the harem pants, level up in the labratory, do the cyrpt.

20th September 2005

1:58pm: 12th Ascension, Hardcore Pastamancer (Opossum), TeeTotaler, Day 1
Day 1

OK... 2x hamethyst, 3x porqoise stones... so I'll only make the porq bracelet and necklace. This saves me 500 meat. So I sold off three stones, and made my items. And then I ate my Pates.

Off to the spooky forest to get my larva, and I had enough meat for 10 fights. I used my bugbear shamen for the first 9, and got my smile sharpening stone on the 10th fight, when I swopped in my cheashire bat. Then off to the Typical tavern, where I was getting a lot of rat appenidices, but realised I had no spooky mushrooms, so finished the quest. Then I took 10 turns in the sewers, hoping for a stolen accordian, some spices and some trnkets... I got the stolen accordian and 4 trinkets, but no spices.

I then went to the back alley to get my web, but after 17 advs I did not have it, so I gave up. Then I went to the haunted pantry where I got my lid after 2 advs. I had given myself 5 advs to try get the lid, so I decided to go back to the back alley to try get a web in the 3 advs I had saved... I got it on my first adv. Go me ;-)

Then I went to the outskirts of Cobb's Knob for my chef's hat. 20 advs later, I did not have it. I will have to make do without a chef.

I went to go open my guild store, and got some MMJs. I had an asshat, so I used that and got 4 sonars and a broken skull in 10 advs. I decided not to waste time getting the baseball (famous last words?). The boss bat was an easy pushover, and I stole his pants. I then went to the spooky forest to either get some spooky mushrooms, or to get some spices... and got some spices.

Since I had the spices, the wad of dough and a trinket, I went to the beanbat chamber to get my enchanted bean for my ISEBB. I got 2 enchanted bean (one is for planting in 6 levels time), and went to Degrassi Knoll for my Bitchin' meat car. Twelve advs later, I had it. So I made my ISEBB and ate it.

Now I needed a tomato for my boring spaghetti, so i hit the kitchens... but did not see my madrigal had run out, so I was beaten up. Three wasted advs at the sewer later, and all madrigalled up, I was back in the kitchens, kicking butt and taking names. I gave myself 5 advs to get the tomato, but only managed to get 2 sausages and some spices. So I made some spicy noodles and ate those instead.

Since I did not get a baseball, I decided to at least try for a disease, and got that and a box in just three advs. Then I needed some fruit for my reagent potions at the end of the game. I decided to keep going to Fernswarthy's tower until I had at least 4 useable fruit, or a brain. After just three advs, I had a disembodied brain. Honestly!

So then I went to the Misspelled cemetary. I might as well try and get a smart skull. After 16 advs and 3 smart skletons, I had no brain (though I did get a dead guy's watch... oh, the irony), so I spent the rest of the meager advs I had left in the treasury.

I ended the day 34 sub points short of level 6, which I can say I lost in the 20 advs fruitlessly looking for a chef's hat.

As a first day goes, I am not thrilled. I can handle not having a smart skull, but no chef's hat is a worry.
