    A Set of Guardians (Sept) – Planning & Progress

    After having a lot of fun with the Zod sept, I felt like starting another long-term side project. Or as @maxicek aptly put it: (Btw this does not replace the imperative MP sept, in case you thought you got off the hook.) *** Quite simple really: Trying to get Guardian with each class while...

    Matriarch Furry – Fuzzy Dodger (Bear Amazon)

    After the Avengers, the next MP project was the Shapeshifting group. With that I welcomed the opportunity to make a Bear Amazon, the last class that I hadn't played as a shapeshifter previously. Here's some gameplay from @maxicek's perspective throughout A5, including some of those awesome...

    Patriarch ZodNecro – Melee 2h/Summoner Necro

    Patriarch ZodPal: Freezing & Shocking Avenger

    Character #6 in my Zod sept. After Mat'ing the Sorc a few days ago, the Paladin quickly followed suit as the Avengers MP group (with @maxicek, @D2DC, @skiffcz, @PhineasB) quested through all of Hell this last weekend. maxicek kindly recorded the Pat Baal run.... ... as well as additional...

    Matriarch ZodSorc – high-defense Dream/Zeal Sorc

    This is the 5th character in my Zod sept, aptly and equally uncreatively named. :) A bit of a special case this one! Recorded a short vid showing her Mat Baal run and gear that she finished A5 Hell with: Not the best showcase of her defense-oriented build idea (see below), but didn't bother...

    Finding the Balance – Tournament Results

    Hi all, it's time to see the results of the "Finding the Balance" MF/RF tourney. Here we had runes and S&Us both count towards a single overall score. This is a new format, and it was interesting to see how this played out. Running thread can be found here. Let's get to the results straight...

    Patriarch ZodDruid: Fiery Fury Druid

    Very brief report on Zod Sept character number 4. His Zod item was an ethereal Earth Shifter, a drop that prompted me to start the sept. The unfortunate thing was that I recently played a Druid with Earth Shifter, so in order to differentiate the two (and to make the most of the eth Shifter)...

    Finding the Balance: MF/RF Tournament (Signup & Running)

    Some time has passed since MFO, and with RFL not even quite on the horizon yet, it’s time for another SPF tournament to fill the void! Like several other recent tournament formats (see e.g. here, here or here), we will combine magic finding (MF) and rune finding (RF) for this competition. You...

    Patriarch ZodBarb – Beastly Barb

    Character #3 in the Zod Sept, as the yet again creative name might suggest. ;) Never played a Wolfbarb but wanted to for a very long time, so finally got around to it. Some time ago I found a nice 6/6/6 Wolhowl and when starting this sept I knew the Barb would be using that. Pat screenshot at...

    Matriarch ZodZon – Hybrid Passivezon with Death Cleaver & Wrath switch

    This Zon is the first completed Mat from the Zod sept I just started last week. I figured I'd go ahead and start with one of the weaker builds I've been planning. Never played a Passivezon before, so this was something new for me entirely. Moreover I never used Wrath, an interesting runeword...

    Patriarch Shiv – BotD Necro Bear

    After the Earth Shifter (et al.) Druid being the sixth character in this sept a couple of days ago, I just went ahead and concluded the sept with this Necromancer. The Necro was already at A5 Normal, so had a pretty easy route ahead of him that would be finished quickly. Here's the Pat Baal run...

    Patriarch Bruce – Shapeshifting Druid Indeed

    Hi SPF! Been somewhat inactive since RFL, but I've been playing a bit the last couple of days, in particular this guy. He is the sixth completed character in this sept – a consortium of weird builds with some funky gear found exclusively by my three untwinked 99ers (Sorc, Necro and Paladin)...

    [Guide] From rolling ancient tunnel maps to completing the grail (originally posted by Albatross)

    Moving over this great guide by Albatross ______________ It's well established that Pit Zerkers are the kings of magic find. The SPF Hall of Records and recent Magic Find Olympics will attest to their efficiency, yet some still prefer an Ancient Tunnels (AT) sorceress. That might be because...
