The Ultimate Acheivement

You offer the Amulet of Yendor to Susanowo…–More–
An invisible choir sings, and you are bathed in radiance…–More–
The voice of Susanowo rings out: "Congratulations, mortal!"–More–
"In return for thy service, I grant thee the gift of Immortality!"–More–
You ascend to the status of Demigoddess…–More–

Ha! You didn't expect that after the last post! Anyway, Nethack provided a much needed distraction from long hours working on the thesis, and I've now finally beat the bastard. NOW I can finish the PhD, but as colleague Benjamin said: "Why? Just tell your Prof that you finished Nethack. It's equivalent." :)

Anyway, the whole game summary is here.

[…]
and 1379 pieces of gold, after 54466 moves.
Killer: ascended
You were level 26 with a maximum of 211 hit points when you ascended.

Only thing that makes me feel like I cheated is that I was lawful the whole game and changed to chaotic at the last turn to save me a meeting with pestilence.

Next time I'll do it as a Wizard!

(Apologies if you have never seen or heard of nethack, then this will appear like completely random ramblings :)
