Galen is on a distinguished road

Yes. Unfortunately, I didn't save the character dump (because I was mad )

Strong freedom effects (song or staff) removes pits and rubble, climbing out of the pit is another option. Killing most escort before or while going for Morgoth in melee helps (rage) - at least you get out of the pit.
Yeah, the problem was not enough damage output to prevent myself from being surrounded. I really should've saved the dump. But, anyway... I had a deathblade 'Delmereth' and 30 melee (when buffed). And also 30 evasion, and song of slaying. And not a ton of armor (IIRC, 5-16 armor), because I found a robe of speed (that gives perma-haste, not sprinting). My impression is that haste from an item doesn't stack with potions of quickness. Is that so? If yes, that robe was pretty bad (for the throne room).
OTOH, that were two characters in a row that reached Morgy's room. The game itself doesn't seem difficult, but the throne room is not like the rest of it. I think the throne room is bad, and has a bad influence on other parts of the game (namely, the grinding on level 19). But maybe other people like it that way, I dunno.
