Quirk is on a distinguished road
Sending a character down myself to track your progress and remind myself of pacifist play:

Equipment isn't terribly useful to pacifists except where it aids Stealth, Perception, Song or light radius. Cloak or boots of Stealth would be a significant boon.

I'm wearing enough armour to protect myself a bit, but less than 10 lbs.

The main thing is to get enemies close enough to see them and gain experience, but not so close they rumble you. Light radius matters a lot for this. With 8 stealth and Song of Silence now I am fairly safe from trolls and orcs, but bats and wolves are still problematic. Things that move faster than you are in general difficult to deal with.

You are interested in finding slay weapons, but as sources of extra light when you're near appropriate enemies, not for fighting.
