Lucky start!

Paladin it is again. I found the stairs to lvl 2 and, equipped with many oil flasks, went down in the hopes of finding Bullroarer. In the first room I was happily surprised to see a yellow ~. Equipping it revealed +5 int (!), which, alas, isnt useful to me, but the other rune which I eventually identified turned out to be FA. Hurrah!

Level 4 had a cloak of stealth (+3) lying about and I bought a sling of extra might (x3) (+9, +11) on my first return trip to town.

Eventually I found Bullroarer (he is usually accompanied by evil blue "h"s which show up on the paladin detection) and he dropped a battle axe of *slay demon*, not great but still an upgrade to my starting dagger at 24 damage/round.

Level 15 then was the next hit - first, the yeek dad dropped another phial, and this time with +4 wisdom. Better, as meanwhile I have found both a ring and boots of FA.
Then, while chasing down his son, I picked up a hard leather cap (??). After Orfax croaked (no notable drop), I equipped it to identify - a cap of Telepathy!

Returning back home I spotted a main gauche of slay undead (+7,+10) at the weaponers which I could barely afford, so damage is up to 50 now. I guess I am set.

Only rogues can steal, so no worries.

That is indeed much better; consider leaving the elven mail at home to save on weight.

Let us know what the shield does as you find out.

Slowly but surely my friend

We're up to 5.2 blows a round
796 vs demons
527 vs. non-cold-resistant/giant
257 otherwise

Still haven't found a potion of strength! (or augmentation or draught of the ents)
