Hm. Seems fun. I think I'll do this too. Only level 34 right now, though. I'll start posting once I hit 50.

Hit level 50 today, so it's time to strip off the IotM and get down and dirty for the slog to 100. Of course, there's only about 2 hours left of today, so I won't really get moving until tomorrow. Today will mostly be smacking around S7G to get those robots up to a useful level (I killed 0 robots there pre-50). I'll still use IotM-derivitives (like Tanzanian cola or lost phones) and URs, but no shorts or shirts or what-have-you.

Current attempt at efficient gear:

Helmet: xentrium helm
Main Hand: Trident of Nodens
Shirt: Robe of 'Umr At-Tawil
Gloves: Doctor Worm's surgical gloves
Boots: Prefontane's shoes
Off hand: antique shield
Accessory: ryme of the ancient mariner
Accessory: Lil' Jerk Disguise Kit
Talisman: Abaddon charm
Transport: dreamer's clock

You have defeated 39 robots in Sector 7-Gamma

Strength: 740 (389)
Intellect: 323 (214)
Reflexes: 356 (211)
HP: 799/799
PP: 7/451

Gear will probably change as I go, but it seems a good starting point.

Day 1 (first full day)

Diet: 4 Turkish Coffee, 6 gumdrops (from an IotM, but available in the mall at reasonable prices).

Spending some time in S7G as it's still not at a level where anything aside from normal attacks are necessary. I am, however, hopped up on Liao now. Although Rock-Em Bots are hitting harder than I like. In fact, they're the only ones posing a threat at the start.

After 3 hours, they can instakill me. Moving off to the underwater city for easier grinding. And, of course, yummy discs. To that end, I swapped out the antique shield for an attache case.

End of day 1:

Level 52
XP: 1,620,001
(11,499 to next level)

Strength: 583 (402)

Time: 6:58:30 AM
Bedtime: 9:07 AM

You have defeated 98 robots in Sector 7-Gamma

S7G's going to sit for awhile. I have enough logos for 6 or 7 levels. Which means wasted time farming up more.

Day 2.

Diet: 3 Tanzanian Colas, 6 Gumdrops

More time in the underwater city before switching to depths of space (with a little S7G tossed in for good measure). With hitting level 55, I swapped around some gear: Treader for Prefontane, Xentrium for Dr. Worm, and the Lancer for the Trident. I'll miss the Trident's leeching, but for now, I need the increased damage output and bonus attacks. Especially since I'm a Naturalist. Since tomorrow's Frayday, I think I'll just mindlessly grind for logos. I'm running low.

Day 4

Diet: 3 Tanzanian Colas, 6 Gumdrops

Attache case re-equiped and off to the Depths of Space. Back to using the Trident too, since they're both +3 attacks and the space critters can hit me.

Level 58
XP: 2,208,540
(16,460 to next level)

Not the most productive day, but I'm too lazy to work any harder.

Day 5: Terms of Enrampagement

Diet: 3 Tanzanian, 6 Gumdrops

Mostly bouncing between Depths of Space and S7G. Thanks to the Crystalizer, I'm able to survive (barely) getting hit by the Rock 'Em Bot. Well... for a little while. Or, until it gets a crit: Your opponent has a critical hit! It hits for 3610 damage. It cleans your clock with that hit.

Day 7: What a Grind

Diet: 4 Turkish Coffee, 6 Gumdrops

Off to the Crypts for XP, discs, and Liao. Stupid Shoggoths. However, the multiversal gong is really handy here. Stunning every other combat round is nice. Might be kind of cheating, but it's the current IotM, so nyah. Besides, after a few more levels, I won't need it any more.

Also, the length of each round's text amuses me:
Spoiler: show
You attack ... particles of pure energy stream from your Trident of Nodens, tearing into your opponent 4 times for 119 + 6 damage.

Your trident fires an icy beam, dealing an additional 18 damage.

You gain some of your opponent's life force. You gain 8 hit points.

You gain some of your opponent's energy. You gain 8 power points.

Your Yithian points the strange weapon at your opponent and gives it a powerful blast. It does 9 + 9 damage.

Your opponent attacks ... Dozens of claws spring forth to slice, dice, and shred you. Along with about ten other synonyms. And then you get a paper cut looking up those synonyms in a thesaurus. It's really not your day, is it? It hits you for 81 damage.

Your opponent is damaged by your fierce defenses, and takes 2 damage.

Your opponent is singed by your fiery defenses, and takes 9 damage.

Part of your opponent's blow comes into contact with your sonic defenses, causing your equipment to reverberate with a resounding CLONGGGGG! It causes 4 damage to your opponent.
Had enough surplus turns that I was able to recharge my blanket, too.

Day 8: Distracted by WL2 (again)

Diet: Tanzanians and Gumdrops

Pretty much just pounding heads in Crypts. Works well enough for now, especially when I'd rather be re-reading the Wasteland 2 vision document. Managed about 11 Liaos and some Nocturnes. And XP, of course.

Day 9: O Black Water, Keep on Rollin'

Diet: 3 exigen, 6 gumdrop, blanket

Little bit of S7G and a lot of Crypts. Managed to get 8 Noctuaries and 11 more Liao. Not terrible. Soon I'll hit level 70 which will give me another bump in power. None too soon, either. S7G is taking 2 TNT now. Except for Rock-Em Bot... "It hits you for 5450 damage." Stupid Rock-Em Bot.

Day 12: Back in the Saddle

Diet: 3 Tanzanians, 6 gumdrops.

Back to the Crypts (and S7G)! Stupid robots are hitting pretty hard, especially Rock'em (of course). Started to red-eye the Giants because they chew up too many resources. Managed 7 Liao and 4 Noctuaries. Stingy Crypts.

Day 13: Oh Noes, 13

Day 14: Take These Broken Wings

Diet: 3 Exigen, 6 Gumdrops.

Making some broken wings. Lazy day. Also, accidentally used an uncharged blanket. Oops.

Your 10 broken wings have been moved to your memento case.

Sad thing is, I still have 21 to go. Didn't think getting blasted by lightning would chew up so much time. Oh well. I guess I got some piddling XP and +50 Intellect.

Day 15: Suck it, Chisox

Diet: 3 Tanzanians, 6 Gumdrops, 1 Blanket (mutter mutter)

Mostly just in the Crypts and ended the day in S7G. S7G was really made for Psions; I'm still losing initiative despite trying to jack it up as much as possible. At least I can survive one hit from everyone except the Rock'em still, makes it a little easier.

Day 16: Fire up the Kula Shaker!

Diet: 3 Tanzanians, 6 Gumdrops

Switched talisman (used Noctuaries to reclaim the lost XP). Abaddon really wasn't cutting it for me, so I switched to Gandiva. Yeah, I know it's a donation talisman, but it's current. And it's not technically an IotM, so nyah. I wanted the initiative, mostly. The loss of ~100 HP hurts, but I'll manage. More S7G and Crypts, as per usual. And by Crypts, I mean bungee'ing the tcho-tcho.

Yeah, days off, lazy days. 2 days in the Crypt. Needed the liao anyway. Luckily, this ends one way or another in a week!

Meh. I'm done.

I'd forgotten how mind-bendingly boring level grinding was. I think I'll just fool around and kill time until I Harry's contest in July.
