Agreed. I much prefer the model that wands should be reserved for when you jeed them, and rods should be used for the simple cases. With this observation, perhaps some rods should be deleted? I...

Too bad, though somewhat predictable. Sil is a hard game--the usual method is to plan out a strategy in advance, not have it forced on you by chance. That said, archers take special tactics that take...

Gg
Shovel of quakes can't actually cause earthquakes. It takes at least a pick, and it generally requires a *GREAT* hit in melee.

After a very slow start (no ego weapon or free action til dl 35 or so), things slowly started picking up. A bit of speed from Collanon, and a bit more from Totilla. Then Bard(!), around DL 50, just...

If this really is your last try, why not use a non-random character? 1233 is pretty much blah across the board, though possibly sybtlety? But 1332 would be easier for that, as it cuts your melee and...

That bad DEX and CON will hurt. You might want to try pacifist. (Put everything in stealth, detdction, and song, and sing lullabies.)

Random char generation will be brutal in Sil. Yeah, you will lose a lot of chars until you get one that is roughly optimal. Might as well play with a char of your choice

Kobolds are stealthy with poison resistance and good CON and DEX. But really, it (and Hobbit) is just the canonical race for rogue.

Early full detect objects spell. But it is less over-the-top awesome than it used to be because of loss of resistance and haste spells in 4.2. Also fewer HP.

Whip of Gothmog is *made out of fire*. So yeah, it has light. Cettainly blessed weapons should not be vulnerable to removal of light, and indeed should up the fail rate even more.

3.3 blows with Haradeket sucks. Ditch the Ring of Flames for =Dex. Recommend using wands instead of rods for damage. Recharge is very reliable in v4.2. Lightning bolt is pretty worthless at your...

Stunned is my guess, too. Stunned melee loses both accuracy and damage, and you might get more stunned. It is a very bad deal.

List-tvals is necessary to make an enum used by the code. There isn't much point in adding a tval without also adding logic to handle it, so I see no benefit to changing this
