The IM Game at the End of the Universe - Cyrene
Ok. I wanted to put this game seed out there, not as a challenge, but because I found this game to be very entertaining. It is very frustrating to waste 2 hours of your diablo im time doing yet another church clear to wind up in cats somewhere with 0 bows or 0 pots or no heal spell or stick ever dropping.
This game has resources aplenty for all three classes in either team or solo play. Yes, for the mage, too.
It will go out of its way 3 different times to kill you in the blink of an eye.
It has some nice breather levels, also.
Best yet, everyone could try it(I think), wintel or macrola.
It is the end of time game, set anytime after blizzs prng craps out. I used 2056, but I think the key year is 2039 or so; anytime after that and the game doesnt randomize.
You know you have the right game if:
Butch drops something small
Leo drops something ironic
Dlvls 3 and 4 are exact duplicates, with a very silly, very long hallway running north-south.
If you try it, dont leave your system clock set to that year (unless you like crashes)! Crank your year up, start the game, put your year back, and you are good to go.
