I'll be honest, I'm not sure if those are zeros or o's but whichever they are they're the same.   I died right at the start of floor 8, the first floor of the mines.  After a bad run in with a spikebomb I took two steps towards the massuese guy for healing and got nailed by a skull mage from across the room I hadn't noticed.

Thanks man, if you ever need a rescue let me know.

I don't normally ask to be rescued but I just died in Shiren in the first level of the mine, right after mountaintop town.  Normally I would just shrug and restart but I was in the process of moving stuff between storerooms and the this would be a huge setback for me.  If anyone is interested I'll post the password.

Storeroom jars are rare drops, I've found three or four since I've been playing.  The amulet I'm not sure, I found while reviewing my loot I had stashed in my storerooms, I don't remember where I found it...

I'm going to hold off on my final run for now but I am so close I can taste it...

You're probably right.

I'm on the cusp of my final Shiren run.  I finally found an armband of calm which protects against confusion.  I have my Mastersword+19 and Armorward +12.  30 or so wooden arrows and both Kechi and Pekegi (Oryu died in the mines.)  Plus I have a storeroom jar if things look like they're going completely to shit.  I'm at the point of no return, the mountaintop village before the marsh.  After this it's a hard run to the Golden Plains of 15 hellish levels, broken only by the underground stream village which has NO store room.

The last time I stood looking down this staircase and thinking I was ready I paid the ultimate price...  Should I wait until my whole party is with me?  Do I need more riceballs?  Should I buff my Sword more first?  I'm going to save it and sleep on it.  This game is going to drive me insane...

That's more like epic x5, and I thought the sword I used for my run was epic...

Don't have monster meat yet, didn't even get the restaurant side-quest yet (But I did get a bungee jump thing).
And if there is a chance it could work well, I'll take it.

That I'll take to heart, I'll dedicate a Holding Jar or three to Scrolls of Blessings.
Monster meat of varying types will show up in shops occasionally.  Mamel meat is best because it's cheapest and it's the weakest creature in the game so if you hit anything else with it they become easily beatable Mamets.  I've been told this works on the final boss as well.

And Oryu pisses me off, she's a psycho killer who keeps running off on her own and dying, her blind move makes her the one I would prefer stay alive...

Did you fuse your Mastersword with anything?
And would a Drain Buster work on a Polygon Jive?
What about Doppleganger Staffs? Would they be useful for a quick distraction while you make a break for it or should one skip it entirely?

Monster House... That sends chills up my spine. I wouldn't know if it would be worth it to fight or just book it for the exit.

And I wouldn't mind using the Scroll of Removal on a certain enemy (Either that special someone in the Plains of the Sun or those Skull Mages you see near/at the Plains). And I'll be bringing a Scroll of Blessing if anything gets cursed; I'll make sure to keep those types of enemies away. Far away.

My epic Mastersword that I lost was fused with one of those swords that attacks three directions at once and was plated and was +53 or 54.  I had a storehouse jar with me so I wouldn't lose it, I hadn't counted on being confused by one of those eyed bastards and I was beyond pissed off when it happened.

Doppleganger staff might work on the polygon jive, even better would be throwing monster meat if you have it.  I've never tried a drain buster so I couldn't say how well that works.

As for monster houses, I always fight through them, the drops and loot are always prime.

And bring as many blessing scrolls as you can get your greedy mitts on.  Another of my favorite tactics is to slap cursed stuff into a jar of change.  Whatever new item you get won't be cursed and I've had this work out surprisingly well a few times.

I've only found one melding jar.

I usually carry two chiropractic jars.  My mastersword is plated.  I have an armorward I melded with a hide shield so it has the lesser weight and of course is plated.

Floor 28 is the start of the final trial and it's basically a monster house.

Watch out for the polygon jive on floors 26/27 they have an instant starvation attack that drops your fullness to zero.  I stock up on paralysis wands and dragon herbs, they're FAST so don't bother with knockback staffs.

Scroll of removal to my knowledge is good for removing cursed items but an unequip trap will do the same.

Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja (DS), Doom the Roguelike and Angband (I know TLO swears by it).
Can't vouch for the sequel to Izuna, as I haven't played it yet.

TLO swears AT Angband  laugh

So back on the crack again... I mean Shiren.

Convinced someone else to drive and got a good couple games in.  Got a few new goodies stashed in my "final run" jars and got my master sword up to +19.  I bought the farm on floor 28 this time, didn't have any blastwave scrolls left AND I had to fly solo from level 16 on because all 3 of my back up got their asses handed to them by the level drain crap in the marsh.  I admit to using them as cannon fodder though so it's all good.

If anyone needs rescues let me know, I'll be grinding for goodies in prep for my final run in my spare moments and it looks like I'll have wifi most evenings.

Ramones - Road to ruin.  Yes, the whole album.

In a hotel on the other side of Ohio, fresh from the Rock and Roll hall of fame.

It is amazing yet frustrating... so much awesome stuff but hardly any of it can be photographed.  For me the highlight of the trip was the escalator trip down to the main floor because the morning sun shone like a beacon across the room and I screamed " OH MY FUCKING GOD, THAT'S JOHNNY RAMONES GUITAR!!!"  And it was...

Then I got into an argument discussion with a dimwit employee who confuses pop sucess with artistry regarding why Metallica was inducted while Motorhead is conspicuously absent.  Worse yet Trujillo was inducted while Mustaine was snubbed?  Gah...  But anyway, the rock hall of fame, check it out, more wonders than I can describe AND a nice record store (with shit for Motorhead variety).

And for those of you standing by for Shiren saves, I still haven't had time to turn the DS on.  Whenever I get a wifi signal this is pretty much the only place I check on...

Because it's a niche group game, it's brutal, more forgiving than some roguelikes but unforgiving enough for you to make a combo of curse words at your DS when you die, it's savage...
And because Log, TLO and Gez play it as well.

I swear to God you guys are going to get me started on that damn game again  Tongue  I brought my entire DS library with me on my trip "just in case".  The first downtime I get I'm playing Shiren..

Found wifi hot spot at Cedar Point.  Top Thrill Dragster is awesome!!!!  Google it.

I will be gone until right around July 4th, through careful plotting and hoarding of vacation days I've managed to accrue 27 consecutive days away from work and I will travelling most of the country during that time, most likely away from computer access.  As I hit occasional wifi hotspots I may pop in but don't plan on seeing much of me until late this month/early next month.  Later all, behave while I'm gone  laugh
