Grotug is on a distinguished road
Angband is a dangerous place to find comfort from the hardships of rl! But I feel your pain; I've had some pretty lousy strings of bad luck, but I'm learning to recognize strings of good luck I've also had (it's much easier to notice the bad lucks, and not the the good ones). How about that time I TO'd successfully like 25 times in a row at around 18-20% fail rate? When @ is TO'ing OOD monsters that move two to three times faster than him, that string of luck was all the difference between winning and dying.

But, anyway, another reason I like HT Warrior: not much time/energy has been invested in a character that dies on DL22. When I discovered how significant the experience penalty was on High-Elves I stopped playing that class.
