Song would be a big help, but not for Sharpness. Silence and Lorien are the base gameplan for a stealthy character.

Consider Deadly Hail. Doubling arrow damage makes hits big. A poisoned arrow scoring a single critical with Deadly Hail in play would wallop Morgoth for 8d7; this will almost certainly overwhelm his...

Yes. Any attack you get on an enemy which is not a direct result of moving into them should count - this would include also Zone of Control, or Polearm Mastery attacks. I'd need to look at the code...

It used to be possible to stack curses on artifacts you had created to get more smithing points. By Sil 1.3 most of the curses did not give you points because they could be used on items that would...

Finding Orodruth on the floor revealed by the alert thrall is very lucky, it requires a very early Orodruth generation. Nice not to miss that, though.

Jeweller is a pretty solid skill, agreed.

At 53 evasion with double free action I'm going to call that death somewhat unlucky. That said, getting a Sil is way easier than killing Morgoth. He gets harder to kill the closer he is to dying. If...

Sharp weapons ignore half the armour roll.

Grotesques have 8d4 armour, though most late-game enemies have less. Spiders have 1d4 armour, the serpents you were fighting 5d4 or 6d4. If you're using...
