I'm using latest build so anything non basic that is inscribed with (??) is potentially an ego. Or it's cursed, but in that case it doesn't matter much...

Hey, I resent that. I'm not as good at the game as Eddie, but I'm just as crazy:

http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=12640

Now, Eddie's the only one to have done an *ironman* artifactless egoless mage. I'm crazy enough to try it, but not good enough to pull it off.

I will say that the Sil "no magic" run was actually harder than this:

What happens when you brand ammo in ego-less play? Saw Tenser's in your inventory.

Holy cow, nice work! I take it the priest leaned heavily on Wands of Annihilation to kill Morgoth? I wouldn't want to go toe-to-toe with him, even as a Priest, when dealing <100 damage/round in melee.

I'm also kind of impressed that, with all the consumables you needed to grind for (and with killing all the uniques prior to Morgoth), the mage never found better than a +12 speed ring...

Humm .. dunno. I'm pretty sure I never tried that. I'm guessing that it would have probably just worked normally. I strongly suspect that the source mod I put in to prevent the generation of Ego items only applied to newly generated items, not to adding the flag to an already existing item (i.e. a stack of missiles).

Yes, mostly. With a few Orbs thrown when summoned monsters got in the way

You get ego ammo that you instantly throw away...

I'm doing a bookless egoless mage, but no way I'm gonna add ironman to that. I've already spent 50k turns to reach 1000ft, I don't want to spend the next 500k turns farming black oozes for basic stuff...

Farmed for WHAT basic stuff? All you will get is Ring of res fire/cold and amulet of res lightning.

Food, light, other basic consumables that you would normally buy at the stores.

I assume Pete meant with the hacks bron inserted to prevent generation of ego items. And my guess is, the spell would work just fine, since it forcibly applies egos to items instead of going through the modified item generation routine.

But yeah, you wouldn't be able to use the ammo without violating the conduct.

You start to hate your egoless challenge when the first cloak you come across has (??) on it, and a scroll of identify used on it tells you that "you have learned the rune of Telepathy"...
