An Extinctionist Tourist 8/25 '23
Everything went according to plan for this, the last character class on my list of ascensions. In fact, it directly followed my Rogue ascension from back in April. Why did it take so long? Perhaps the title gave that away. This tourist came, and saw. and killed absolutely everything. After acquiring the quest artifact ("Don't Leave Home Without It") and a bag of tricks, he realized that he could camp out at the altar on dungeon level 6 and sacrifice monsters to his heart's content. Okay, maybe strictly longer than anyone would be content to sacrifice monsters. To be clear, I do not recommend this play style unless you wish to get over your nethack addiction for a while.
Create monster stopped working on DL6 at about turn 293,400. He descended into Gehennom to create tougher monsters. Demons and such stopped appearing on DL27 at about turn 313,900. Back upstairs to check some more non-Gehennom levels. On Oracle level DL8, baby dragons, naga hatchlings, baby worms, baby crocodiles, and angels (putti?) were exhausted around turn 335,200. In the castle on DL25 there were archons, ki-rin, and titans, which are themselves able to cast "summon nasties". This can someties be annoying, particularly when they summon each other along with their nasty friends. But create monster stopped working for them too around turn 342,000. That was the last of the randomly-generated monsters!
I made a decent effort to clean up all the remaining monsters so the dungeon is as safe as possible. It actually is quite eerie to walk around without seeing a wandering monster every once in a while. I did leave the shopkeepers and temple priests alive since they're always peaceful no matter what the player's alignment. I also left behind some of the less-valuable artifact weapons and gems on DL1, along with 64,655 zorkmids, because I didn't want my encumbrance level to be more than Burdened. That probably wasn't a real danger, but oh well.
