It's taken me nearly 30 years to write this: YAWP!

I've been playing this game on and off since someone gave me a copy of Moria on a 5.25" floppy back in 1987. It was a weirdly busted copy - only the first 2 spellbooks worked for mages for example - and I never did particularly well at it, but it got its hooks into me. Back then there was no internet to go to for advice and so I always played the way my friend advised me to: diving slowly, clearing out each level.

So over the years I'd potter around with Angband and Zangband and other variants, always losing my character well before level 40 due to stupidity or impatience or tiredness or drunkenness. Always playing the game exactly wrong.

Anyway, a couple of years ago I finally, finally grokked what everyone had been telling me and unlearnt those bad habits ingrained over 25 years ago, and today I finally cracked it:

Apologies if I've broken protocol with this post I'm just too damn excited. I've wanted to be able to post this since it was rec.games.moria.

edit: Ah, I see there's a place for dumps. I'll go fix that now.
