I got a couple of questions tho:
1. What is TO? (teleport other?)
2. How can you manage to kill Sauron and Morgoth? I just won the game as mage, and even with clvl50 i have around 850 hp and around 400 sp. With top artifact Equipment i still burn a lot of healings and restore mana potions / staves / rods.
3. If you are true to yourself you have to confirm that you have more than 4 kills. I don't know where the Monsters end up you banish or mass banish, but i would doubt that they can live there. So i think those must be counted as killed as well.

Nevertheless an extreme Performance.

Cheers,

Re: my getting a life, sadly even a Potion of Life would doubtless be insufficient...

As far as winning the boss battles went, as Derakon said it's much more about the gear for the big two bosses, once you meet minimum criteria for hp/speed, which I was able to do as a rogue with room to spare at cl 38.

If you look at the character dump, I had >800hp, plenty of speed and reasonable (though not fantastic) damage options for both melee (Ringil) and distance (Belthronding) attacks. I think it's also key to have ac>200 if you're going to melee Morgoth.

After that, it's just about dealing damage while avoiding potential insta-death (including by combinations of monsters). Since I couldn't kill anything and every unique was potentially summonable, TO/destruct/banish/mass banish/destruct were more important than usual, but that was the only major difference.

Oh, and thanks to all who enjoyed Sniper's adventures, thanks also to MattB & Ingwe for the inspiration to come up with something wacky to try!

Be careful, though. In real life, people are not as lenient as here about a couple of accidental kills.

Grats!

You hear a scream of agony!

...and that's me realizing the un-id'd staff I just tested killed an out-of-sight Red Naga. The staff turned out to be Dispel Evil, which is a level 50 item found at 700 feet! I stopped the run after giving the staff to a store to confirm what it was.

I was trying a Human Rogue for the low-xp, hit-dice and otherwise having a challenge with poor stats/abilities. I was at cl 9, pretty near home free. Sadly, I knew the Naga was there I just forgot they were evil, otherwise I never would have done that.

For what it's worth, the major difficulty I encountered playing as a human was lack of infravision which is especially trying before a lantern is found as you don't see anything in the dark until it's in melee range. So I ended up using an amulet of infravision +2 (kinda wish the spread of bonuses for those was higher, maybe more akin to rings of searching).
