[FAangband] Bori's Epitaph
 
{from the archives of Khazad-Dûm, the month of October of the year I.799, as penned down by Vori, son of Bori, Scribe and Aspirant to the Temple of Mahal}

"To The Stone King, Master and Warden Supreme of Kheled-zram, Durin II.

My King and Liege,

'Tis with great sorrow that I must bring to yer august person news of Bori of Clan Longbeard's demise. I hope that yer toils and counsels shall be permitted a brief reprieve in remembrance of my father's deeds.

A priestson, in good standing and a credit to his family and Clan, my father has wielded steel crackling and hissing, cold and terrible and worn armours pondersome, a true cataphract in the service of the First Father's Throne. Of humble beginnings, he has stained the cap of Amon Rûdh with a further tone of crimson as Mm the Petty-dwarf were slain, in righteous vengeance and grudge settling of the Betrayer's foul deeds. You shall be pleased to remember that Bar-en-Danwedh, or House of Ransom in Men-talk is no more, its memory ground under the heels of their treason.

Nargothrond's grudge was settled soon after, for the slaying of Orodreth, Lord and nephew of Finrod Felagund was avenged with gleaming steel, our ancient battle cries echoing within the Halls of Nulukkizdn, as our petty and heartless cousins have first named it. Were it that our brothers of Nogrod would have delved there first! But surely, as steel longs for whetstone, both Nogrod and Belegost have rejoiced at the sound of Glmund's demise; for Glaurung, the Deceiver of Trin was met with his death and such was his doom at my father's hands.

A missive, long forgotten in the midst of Felagund's riches pointed to a vast and greater evil: none other than Thû the Necromancer, Lord of Wolves, reigning in blood and cruelty from Taur-in-Gaurhoth. The greatest of Morgoth's servants, Sauron the Sorcerer hammered my father's will and wit, much like a forge aflame with fury shall burn out any impurities even from Mithril. Many and vast were his ruses and dooms unleashed upon Bori, but in the end, he too met the end of Bladorthin's wicked side.

Hardened and battle-ready, Bori would bear his eyes to the North and the Wastes of Anfauglith. But a great cloud of Unlight rose to the East and the Valley of Nan Dungortheb was choked in darkness gnawing and ever hungering, Doriath cringing and trembling under its foul reach to its south. Poisons unnumbered and waters tainted in the No Land where even Darkness feared to settle at Night, lest it be consumed by Mru the Gloomweaver's eternal Hunger. Ungoliant's Brood and their Dread Mother were no more, the wave of dread receding after her slaying.

It was time for Bori to claim the destiny of the Longbeards, as befits our noble line: straight from Durin the Deathless we come and straight to Morgoth Bauglir's dread stronghold my father went, in defiane and ready to shed light glorious from the Maker's own banner unto the depths of Angband. My father kept remembering the moment he found a small shield of Khazad-Dûm discarded thoughtlessly in a dark corner of Angband. He took that as an omen from Mahal; brandishing it proudly, he rushed headlong into combat, where shadows and dread images of Things Better Left Forgotten danced around him and where the mountain of malice that is Morgoth aimed Grond times and again at him. O, the infamy of the Dark Lord! O, the perils of such a path! But when Darkness seemed to get the best of him, Bori managed his best and sent Morgoth to the Void whence he came from.

Know, my King, that my father breathed his last at the ripe old age of 258, his proud, but age-rimmed dark eyes settling one last time upon the shimmering waters of Kheled-zram, the lake Men would call Mirrormere. May your Kingship and Durin's throne find a moment of remembrance for him as he passes unto the Halls of Mahal, his rasping battle cry echoing one last time over the walls impregnable of our mansions and forges:

Baruk Khazd! Khazd ai-mênu!

Yours in Oaths of Stone and Mountain,

Vori, son of Bori"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(This is my first victory ever in *band, after having started to play *band early this year. It was a fantastic journey and one I appreciated enormously. I hope the above in-character epitaph will do justice to those that allowed me to create through this wonderful medium that is FAangband.

I would like first of all to thank Nick for creating FAangband, as well as anyone else that has contributed to it. As a fellow First Age fan and dabbling lore collector, I found that the variant does great honour to the Silmarillion's content. Pure brilliance and immersion guarranteed. FAangband made me travel with my mind and that is probably the greatest prize of them all.

Second, I would like to thank all the fine people over at angband.live, where the game took place entirely online, for their support and extremely helpful attitude. Gwarl, thank you for creating and maintaining the server; rodent, my mentor, thank you for the many hours spent watching patiently over a newbie and your precious advice over those last months; wobbly, you have my thanks for providing valuable insight times and again. LogicalImp, you have been the best source of cheering I've ever met in gaming, keep it up my good fellow! Everyone else over yonder, I thank you too for being who you are and keeping our server such a great place to game.

I am not savvy in AARs, this being my first, so please bear with me. In the guise of an epilogue, please find below Bori's character sheet. Game on and may the Valar watch over your steps!)

Great tale of adventure. :)

Congratulations! I am playing FAangband every now an then, but never managed to win. I consider it much harder than Angband, which I have won several times.

And you are absolutely right on Nick's achievement. FAangband is one hell of a rogue-like and full of the Silmarillion theme.

Pete Mack October 31, 2017 17:33

Congrats! Lovely after action report.

Holy_Rage October 31, 2017 18:01

Oh! And a word of advice if I may: NEVER underestimate the importance of Free Action. I got chain paralysed in Angband by a Trapper by mistakenly removing FA from my gear. It took out -300 HP out of a total of 900 HP, lost agonisingly in chunks of 5-6 HPs per hit before I finally made the save and teleported my ultra-scared @ away by means of the first scroll of Teleportation available!

krazyhades October 31, 2017 19:14

Ahhh, a classic equipment shuffle oopsie story. And an excellent win! As Mondkalb points out, FA is harder than vanilla. And a first *band win is definitely a special thing to be treasured. Go Holy_Rage!

Pete Mack October 31, 2017 20:42

Yep. Also can't recommend going up against Ariel and trying to swap for fire immunity, but ending up without even resistance. That was a spectacular death; I ended up at -1000 or so.

Nick October 31, 2017 20:44

Congratulations on your win, and thank you for your kind words and your beautifully written epitaph. I am struggling to find words to frame an adequate response; you have reminded me of all the reasons I worked on FA in the first place, and inspired me for the future. Thanks again :)
