I cast a scroll of *destruction* in town when it was unknown and found another - I assume they're worth keeping for nasty situations?

How useful is a scroll of protection from evil? Full inv.

Wow. I found a ring of accuracy 18. When I replace damage +11, bow damage only goes from 82 to 83, but melee from 115/54 to 91/29 (dragon/normal).

How is an ancient red dragon so hard? Something made a noise and woke it up - my arrow didn't even take one star but he almost took all my HP in a round.

Posted him to the ladder.

Doesn't an item with Rpoison totally block poison damage?

Carrying teleport other, hold monster, confuse monster, deciding is staff of slow monster worth it (I just dropped a rod of slow monster) in case of no mana.

Petoften-
Please dont post so many single questions--it is hard to follow and hard to respond.
Resist poison is just like the base 4 resists: it cuts damage by a factor of 3, so (eg) a drolem will do 269 damage instead of 710. Ancient red dragon shouldn't be much trouble for you, with double fire resistance from Scarabtrices. It does have a cause wounds spell that can ding you for up to ~150HP, so you need to be a little careful. It also does big melee damage, but that shouldn't be a problem for a ranger.

As for why you do more damage vs dragons wearing Ring of Mouse: your weapon has enough dice and slay (or *slay*) dragon, so more blows counts for more than more damage. (This is not common.)

That's the only real way for me to do it as I run across things, other than keeping a text file or something to wait to post.

The ancient red dragon seemed to be mainly melee damage, that took almost all my HP in one round.

Why wouldn't that be a problem for a ranger? He moved to me fast so I couldn't get more than one shot off before he did (small room).

I was surprised how little the ring of accuracy helped bow damage, but maybe it's because with high dex, accuracy is already near the max.
