Stunning also affects the monster's melee a bit. It is not at all like confusion. Confusion disables a monster more thoroughly (though a confused monster can still get lucky with its move direction,...

Items can have many different curses; some are fairly harmless (a warrior doesn't need to lose his sleep over a mana-draining curse, for example), while others are much more dangerous. Watch out for...

'l'ook ought to work on things that are offscreen; * should work too, followed by p if there are monsters in LOS. But if you have problems, you can just press [ for the monster list instead.

Part of the problem with randarts is that the correspondence between an artifact's "power" and how strong that artifact actually is isn't very good; so a randart with nominally moderate "power" can...

You can't enter a vault by teleporting. You have to find a spot where there's a hole in the permanent wall, and dig there.

Also, if it's a murderous greater vault, it will likely have monsters...

Don't ignore the danger. It can kill you. It can also be an opportunity, though, so what you could do is investigate the danger - find why the level is so dangerous, detect constantly to avoid...

Yeah, that's annoying, I'll make that not happen. (It will still be possible to intentionally tele-level out of a dungeon quest, of course.)

Thanks for the support!

If he completes his new tileset I'll be happy to add it in the game. I'm not really a tileset person, though; if he needs a maintainer's active help he should ask Gwarl.

It's hard to overstate how useful rods of detection are to a warrior. They're one of the best and most important warrior utility items.

Amrod far outclasses all your other ranged options; but even if you really want to keep the backup ammo, you could still sell individual shots to get the runes identified.
