Ouch. I would not bother with !RL until down to DL 47 or so--especially with Morgoth at 1 star.

"Score" in many variants is roughly proportional to EXP divided by total moves. But once you hit CL 50, experience is no longer counted, since it has no real value.

@Grotug--
True enough. But if you are more than a few squares away, you are safe for one breath. I don't actually know what the minimum distance is, but 10 squares is surely enough.

@Sky
And I have said before that randarts are unbalanced, if +5 speed isn't worth a sou. Yes, I prefer Dwarven, but I have used +speed, and even balance DSM of Elvenkind in a recent game.

You're pretty much screwed without at least a heavy weapon like an axe. Mattock or horn of Blasting is considered a necessity.

0.5.4:
Weapon base damage is off, increasing with dice. A main gauche is shown as 2 (instead of 3) and a 6d4 artifact is calculated as 12 instead of 15.

NPP still uses v 3.0 model for pricing, but even with that a bow of accuracy isn't worth much. I don't understand how NPP calculates quest value.

I don't so often carry !rCold, as it's less useful than !rFire. But I would rather carry it than Disarming for almost any character.
