You offer the Amulet of Yendor to Anhur... An invisible choir sings, and you are bathed in radiance...--More--

Oh sweet. Wow. I'm so happy! My first ascension of this years nethack tournament. It did not look good at all, when I got there, I went to the left, and Pestilence was there. He killed me three times, I was applying my unicorn horn, but nothing was happening, and I really thought I was done for. I had no amulets of life saving left, and I totally thought I was going to die. Then, I took a night off to reflect and ponder strategy, backed up and rubbed my magic lamp, luckily, I got a tame djinn, and he gave me a wish, which of course was for an amulet of lifesaving.

Then, when I had gone backwards, towards the right, Pestilence followed me, and for some reason, he went into the door of the middle room. I was able to slip past him and make it to the altar. Unfortunately, it was Lawful, and I a chaotic Eleven Sorceress was sad out of luck. I was totally ganged up on, and was down to 28 hit points, getting attacked from all sides. Again, I took a night off, and thought about strategy. I read a post about how good a ring of conflict was on the Astral Plane, I have always eschewed them, since I had a bad experience once on the Astral Plane where I was wearing it as I went into the plane and my Angel attacked me. So, I decided to wear the ring of conflict, and it was the best decision ever. Everyone starting attacking everybody else, mostly, but I had so few hit points, that I died again, using up my amulet of life saving. With no protection against an untimely death, I hightailed it out of the altar room. No one followed me, so I was safe in the anteroom. I spent some time using my magic marker to make scrolls of charging, as I had used all the charges on my wands of teleportation.

After that, I made a dash to the right, dodging Famine the whole way. It was the Neutral Altar! Drat! So, I made it back to the central room. Someone kindly killed Death for me, and Pestilence went off to the left, so I made a mad dash for the altar and...
