It isn't unbeatable, but it is *VERY* difficult. Once @ has telepathy, can reliably cast stone to mud, and cast reveal monsters (or has a stack of detection rods), the game does become easier. Not easy, but easier. The hardest part is to not die to inattention. That, and you do need some luck.

I just tried it with a High-elf Mage, and found it much better. Still not easy by a long-shot, but it made me wish I'd played a mage in the comp. I got my mage down to DL 32 before he died. Failed the rocket launcher at an inopportune moment.
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
