RNG is linking this Ranger

So I decided to get back into Angband after a couple years away with a Dunadan Ranger to try out the new more limited spell book assortment.

RNG seems to be shining on this Character
DL 8 I found the Rapier 'Forasgil' which was my main melee weapon for the next 45 Dungeon Levels!
DL13 gave me a a Flail of *Slay Troll* with Telepathy that is still my exploring weapon since I haven't figured out how to get Telepathy otherwise without opening up a major hole in my resists...

Forasgil was finally replaced by the Bastard Sword 'Calris' which my first Remove Curse spell on worked! (and the same drop had the scroll to do so ) and that lasted for a few bounces up and down until I replaced it with the Scythe 'Avavir' Both served me well as I started hunting Ancient Dragons for XP and knocking off Uniques.

But now I just had a weapon drop that I have seen but once before back about 15 years ago. RINGIL! The previous drop was on a puny mage who died soon afterwards to something when it made him overconfident.

I'm scared now what RNG is going to do to me to make up for this.
