Sangband "Thief" starter tip?

Hi! Iv'e recently discovered Angband and the awesome variant Sangband, and was wondering, for Sangband, whats a good starting skill set? Usually I'll take one in swordsmanship, one in burglary, and one in stealth and just play it safe on the first few levels for a while.

I'm currently playing a burglar in comp 125, different races have different advantages but for skills these I have found most useful.

1.Swordsmanship- burglars get to-hit bonuses with light weapons, so I prefer daggers.

2.Archery, or throwing knives are great.
3.Burglary-*Oath of Burglars* grants many bonuses, +2 dex, trap setting, stealing, hit and run.
3.Stealth-able to sneak attack sleeping monsters
4.Dodging-great for evading other thieves and taking less damage from monsters.
5.Perception-this is vaery valuable for sensing doors,traps, monsters, psdo-idea, and gains a ability to magic map surrondings at proper level.
6. Disarming-a must naturally
7.Magic Device-not really nessary but if you want to use wands/rods/staffs then get a decent level in it, don't need to max out.
8.Spell resistance- Can save your life.

The thing about Sang is that everybody has different vision on what they see their character doing, for me it's a dual-wielding melee rogue for Comp 125.

The Crafting skills are also very fun and powerful, but not nesasary. Certain classes are better than others at different skills.
let me try this workaround...oh crap computer just went black
