Telepathy everywhere!
This half-troll priest is certainly getting his share of telepathy items.
At start, first entry to dungeons and literally one of the first items I find on level *1* is a dagger of *slay orc* with telepathy. Then on DL8 Wormtongue drops awl-pike of *slay undead* with telepathy, and now this:

Amulet of Saeriach <+5, +1>:
Dropped by Old Man Willow at 950 feet (level 19)

+5 wisdom.
+1 infravision.
Provides resistance to acid, cold.
Slows your metabolism. Feather Falling. Grants telepathy.

When activated, it destroys all doors surrounding you.

Yeah, improved amulet of ESP specifically designed for always hungry half-troll priest.

Crazy luck continues:

Heavy Crossbow of Extra Might (x5) (+5, +17) <+1>
Dropped by Khim, Son of Mim at 1300 feet (level 26)

*101 points of damage with plain bolt. Not bad for mid level priest

Phial of Rhoval <+3>
Dropped by Angmaite of Umbar at 1300 feet

+3 dexterity
+3 light
Provides resistance to poison, dark.

*Early rPoison without sacrificing ring slot.

Ribbed Plate Armour (Dwarven) (-3) [66,+19] <+2, +1>
Found lying on the floor at 1300 feet

*Bit of an SP hit but who cares with that AC on DL26

Pendant of Eglin <+3>
Taken from a chest found at 1550 feet (level 31)

+3 wisdom
Provides immunity to fire.
Provides resistance to acid, poison, disenchantment.

When activated, it makes you very hungry but restores constitution and strength
Takes 41 to 45 turns to recharge.

Decided to keep the ESP dagger and swap ESP amulet for this. And with this even the dagger does reasonable damage:

Ring of damage (+0, +15)
Bought from a store

So level 29 HT priest at DL31 has AC of 136, HP 269, 90.5 damage vs others from dagger and even more from crossbow, fire immunity, ESP, 2 sources of rPoison, found 3 items with ESP, artifact cloak from Boldor (at level 14) that gives +4 strength and +5 stealth (sneaky half-troll...)

I've got a bad feeling about this...

Yay! I hope you squash them dead! I hope you decimate those denizens of evil, drive them back to the foul places of the Earth whence they came. I hope your bolts split their heads open and your dagger spills green blood freely. We are all relying on you now. There are none who can stand against the might of Morgoth better than you, Ugramoth! You must not fail! The free peoples of this good, green middle-Earth are counting on you now. It is a gift these rare weapons and armaments of protection have come to you! You must not waste them! Instead, lay waste to those that would oppose you. I have faith you will see this task through. Hope is a well in my bosom that grows with each artifact and uber-ego item you find! Go now. You must not dally! May strength and wisdom continue to hearken to you.

Nevertheless, beware the RNG gods, they are fickle. Good luck! :D

And remember, Wiruin is not detected by ESP.

BTDT. You just had to rub it in, didn't you?

Ugramoth May 31, 2020 05:15


And neither is time vortex. What was that bugger doing on DL33 anyway?

See some people say trolls are dim witted, they are just too busy using their telepathy to put on intellectual airs.

He literally mentioned this on my character's ladder entry which had been killed by Wiruin
