Record Vault find so far...

#1 Post by Thorondor »

I'm playing Theme on 2.35 with a sorcerer.
Just had a vault on level 60 of Barad Dur, which contained Ancalagon the Black. Whilst my character is 'very lucky' I've not had a haul like this before. I wonder what the RNG has in store for me next!

dagger of rilia
randart chain mail
randart eagle down coat
Plate mail of Isildur
The Quarterstaff 'Nar-i-vagil'
The Great axe of eonwe
The Device trap set of the noegythnibin
The spear 'Nimloth'
Iron Crown of Beruthiel
Lochaber axe of gothmog
Long sword of Angmar
Quarterstaff 'Eriril'
2 galvorn plate mails of immunity
Small mithril shield of reflection
The cloak colannon
The small mithril shield of thorin
The metal cap of celebrimbor
The pair of metal shod boots of THror
The Great Ace of Durin
The Broad Sword Aranruth
The Dark Sword Mormegil
The Long Bow of Legolas
The Seeker Arrow of Bard
The Mithril Boomerang of Beor
Elessar
3 polished dragon armour suits
several spellbooks.

Just working out what to take back for the Museum now... :)

I have been playing a Tome DeathMold possessor the last few days. Yesterday I got Eol's body and the Helm of Knowledge so I jumped to level 69 of the Paths of the Dead to get some good companions. I summoned a bunch of demons and headed out to clear the level with the rock-borers opening up things behind me. There was a big empty space when Ji Indur Dawndeath showed up.
That started a massive chain summoning battle. Once he was down low enough I killed him but then he got summoned again as well as Hoarmurath and a Pit Demon. I summoned demons until I was low on mana, tp'ed away to regenerate, tp'ed back, etc. When we finally finished them all off I had over 100 demon pets and had gained five experience levels. The loot was scattered over half the level.

One of the artifact armors was triple immunity (acid/electricity/cold) which pairs nicely with Flare and means I can use Anarion instead of Thorin to sustain all stats. There was also the Star of Elendil and one of the artifact gauntlets I didn't need and didn't *ID* so they don't show up on the list.

Amazing! I love Theme. I miss the game tremendously.

I remember that whenever I found the Amulet of Life and Death (or something like that), my sorcerers would cruise to the end. And yet still the game was fun.

Can I ask, is there an easy way to download 2.3.5 (or whatever your functionally playing) with Theme, for Mac? I have CrossOver, etc., so maybe I can do an exe?

I have been playing online at Angband.live. It has Tome 2.3.6-ah and has both the Theme and Fury modules as well.

Great, thanks. I tried that years ago on plain T2, and found it a bit buggy for my system, but I’ll look again. Thanks so much!!!

I have tried everything on Angband.live, to no avail, so I went ahead and made a bottle and am running tome.exe under CrossOver. It seems to be working well on the surface. There may be some file problems: eg it can’t ever find my macros upon stopping and starting the program. I wonder if this means there are other files it can’t find. But for now working great.

Macros are erased on exiting Tome unless you have saved them using the @ menu.

I am using @ 2 return, but alas I think that using CrossOver in a bottle futzes with the location of saved files.
