1 5134296 plord-Wiz-Elf-Mal-Cha ascended to demigod-hood 106 [278]

I have been playing the "modern" version of nethack, with the Quests and Elemental Planes and other "new" features, since its release in 1993. I had previously ascended some characters in the 2.0 and 3.0 versions, but for the last SEVENTEEN YEARS I'd never so much as sniffed the endgame in version 3. Some of that is the huge reduction in available playing time since moving West, startup workload, family, but still. You get tired of having your one good character of the year get hit by a thrown potion of paralysis and then nibbled to death by a pony.

To give you some idea, I started playing this particular character probably 2 years ago. So, the game is NOT eating my life as it once did. It took about 135,000 moves and 2 of my 5 amulets of life-saving (holy crap, the Elemental Planes are HARD), but late yesterday, "An invisible choir [sang], and [I was] bathed in radiance" :)

Then, immediately thereafter, I rolled up a lawful monk who, on dungeon level 2, walked over a polymorph trap, turned into a Lichen, and was killed by starvation shortly thereafter.
