I assumed winner with lowest turncount, or if no winner, experience/turncount was the comp winning condition. Given the other odd parameters, I wasn't sure until this post.

I treated it as ironman, haven't been back to town at all, squelched all money at the start, and don't remember having gone up any stairs (though I'm not positive on that last one).

That also shows in your turncount. Mine is several times yours.

Doing the same challenge now but with randarts on, after 20 something years I'm a bit bored with standarts on. Even with my very low win count with vanilla.

I normally take 2 trips back to town to get at least one copy of each book and enough food and torches to make it to Satisfy Hunger and lantern depth. Then off I go.

I really didn't think I could outdo Voovus' turncount, and delayed even attempting it for many days. @'s damage output was just abysmal, but Bron's use of drain life wands gave me some inspiration (I usually use them only against Sauron). Even then, I was very lucky to descend to DL100 quite near a "Workaround" vault, with Morgoth inside. I read Mass Banishment, and TO'd Morgoth once, giving me time to set Glyphs of Warding throughout the vault. When Morgoth returned, I knew I couldn't afford to teleport him away even one time, else I'd lose on turncount. Keeping @ out of his line of sight for as long as I possibly could, I emptied drain life wands on him, and recharged them as many times as I could. Arrows came next, and finally, line of sight no longer avoidable, Dispel Evil (1% fail) and Annihilation (26% fail). @ was utterly surrounded and standing on the last Glyph of Warding when Morgoth finally went down. It was a very close thing.
