HugoTheGreat2011 is on a distinguished road
My playstyle depends on the variant.

For PosChengband, I generally do this:
A) When creating Possessors, I constantly create characters until I get a favorable combination of my TOP 3 guaranteed opportunities:

i.e., at least TWO of the following in most cases --
1) Locke, the Superman
2) Combat-Echizen "Because it's time"
3) Wahha-Man the Golden

Hence, the ongoing tradition of my PosChengband Hugo$oul series. This character creation process of mine may take up to 30 minutes or longer in some cases.

B) When playing Possessors, I play for 1-2 hours at a time. Sometimes, I will stop much sooner if I reach a key point, like possessing a Saber-tooth tiger.

C) When creating non-Possessor characters, I play them for about 1-2 hours at a time, sometimes stopping after certain quests or a certain hour.

For Sil, I play for up to 1 to 1 1/2 hours and then stop, usually at 500ft-700ft.

My favorite parts:
--early-mid game: because I can get lucky finds from the various town quests
--late game: when I get really advanced (e.g., clvl 50 Possessor), the game gets real when I possess monsters like Locke, the Superman

--mid-late game: this part of the game feels easy for some reason, partly because there's a chance I can get my favorite Greatsword in the 600ft-700ft range.

Besides Poschengband and Sil, I hardly play any other variants...
Hugo = usually plays Halo, PosChengband and its Forks, and Sil

My YouTube channel, where I'm known as YggdrasilTid (includes my PosChengband gameplay+music):

My most recent good try at PosChengband 7.0.0's nightmare-mode on
