Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup Victories
One of my all-time favorite games is the carefully-designed rogue-like Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. This game (called "Crawl" or "DCSS" for short) is very challenging, so much so that winning the game even under the best of circumstances is quite a notable achievement for the great majority of players. On this page, I maintain a list of "morgue files" that represent the Crawl games that I have won. I get obsessed with Crawl every few months, but I rarely win any games. I hope this page becomes more expansive in the future, but I won't be holding my breath :-).
Up until this point, I have always played Crawl offline. I will perhaps consider playing on servers in the future. I realize that there is a sense that offline wins are not as "legitimate" as online ones, and to an extent I understand that.

- 06-28-2020: Kolix - Minotaur Berserker of Trog (5 Rune Win)
- 07-23-2020: Urthus - Gargoyle Fighter of Qazlal (3 Rune Win)
Having achieved a 5-rune win, as well as a win with GrFi of Qazlal (my all-time favorite combo to play, enjoyment-wise), my next goal is to win with a caster, ANY caster. I have gotten runes several times as a caster before (both as a GrEE and DEFE, and pretty much always worshipping Vehumet). But I have never been able to achieve a win. I feel like my game has improved significantly recently though, and I have been playing seriously again for the the first time in a while, so a caster win might be in my near future. I generally like playing melee better, though.
