Hearse Karma: Part 2

I thought that some people might want an update about the final fate of Rincewind, the human wizzard (spelling intentional).

He continued to run away from the lich for a while until he was forced to go back up to get to his stash. When he arrived at the lich level he feverishly wrote Elbereth on the stair case with magicbane - to ward off evil - and slowly crawled around the level enscribing protective runes all over the floor. He made it back to the place where the arch lich was, but the lich was no more. Weird.

Perhaps there was a chameleon on the level that was just mimicking an arch lich, but it seems that it had teleported to him.

Anyway, emboldened by his lack of a fight he went on to clear out the castle, defeat the dark one with a horde of charmed dragons, wander around in the black market, clear out ludios for more money, gang beat Vlad the Impaler and the Wizard of Yendor (vorpal jabberwocks, chromatic dragons, and purple worms were his pets by that time). He then busted into the lair of Cthulu, and tried (very unsuccessfully) to punch him out.

Things that I learned from this are:
1) Cthulu is really REALLY hard
2) Amulets of Life Saving don't protect you from having no brain
3) In UnNethack, charm monster is super powerful because there are more powerful monsters available to charm.
4) Wands of Polymorph + lots of amulets can make for an easy time avoiding dying.

Without further reminiscing, here are his remains:
