Hmm. Suppose I can take a break from heirloom runs for this.

Took me long enough to build back up after the last retcon that I did. It's gonna be a long time before I retcon again.

I'll try it out with DresdenII. I shouldn't, since I won't win a prize, but maybe I'll get lucky.

Maso sucks. I miss my skills. :(

Can't wait to get back to heirloom runs.

Nah man, I may play it a whole bunch but I'm not the fastest. Shiny won the contest last year, because of her crazy 9-day run.

Stupid NCI.

12 days

Should have been 11 days, but nooooooooo, I had to waste over a dozen turns and 4 smoke bombs trying to get a paperclip.

Poop, that was difficult. Really don't know how to play maso any more.

Time Played This Run: 2d 9h 28m 42s
Days This Run: 14

I'm going to have a quick second go to see if I can do an 11 day run in the remaining days. Unlikely on this form.

I suck so much at Maso, especially when I'm an idiot and choose a class with no healing skill.

13 days, 52h 54m 20s as a Psion, because Psions are the worst.
15 days, 51h 10m 15s as an Elementalist, because moving makes it hard to play every day. >.<

Missed the 11 day run by a mile. Today I've run out of time and I'm level 10, 1320 XP from level 11.

Even if I'd timed it so I could finish my run, don't think I would've even come close to challenging for first.

I enjoyed doing Maso in a truly maso way though - forgot how badly you miss healing.

Having a healing skill would have cut at least an hour off my run, probably closer to two. I just didn't think it through when I chose my class.

Yeah, I was astonished how hard it is to keep your hitpoints up at low levels.

Is the futility belt bad then? I haven't played with one yet, wiki makes it seem like you get lots of good effects.

It gives a free runaway as the Nova skill. Does that count as a good effect?

That's the only good effect. Everything else is bad.

I'm pretty sure those will only fire if the respective pool is already maxed.

Try having it fire off 3 times in a row when you're trying to take down a quest boss. :/
