Ezel the bowless mage on video.

I am continuing to make LP videos.

Here is the next session. Now with my usual playstyle.
http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=11405

After my intro char died, I rolled up my usual combo.
A High-Elf Mage. I will play bowless ( or rather ammoless).
I will play without randarts and with nosell.

First I start notice that the magic store doesn't have book one, and commit suicide.
On the second try, I find a Lantern at the BM. I complete my shopping, almost die to a white worm infection.
After fleeing down, I level up to 3 and start detection spamming.

I run into and kill Fang. Use ID some stuff, including a scroll of Deep Descent. Then I notice I forgot to bring food, and fight my way up to town.
I buy my second spellbook and head down again.

Ezel starts to really use area effect spells. Levels up to nine and recalls. Then he spends lot's of time shopping. Forgets the change to deep descent, and has to walk down to level 8 for the third time.

Ezel goes to dlvl 8 and starts to level up. Gets annoyed at ghosts.
Finally at clvl 11 he starts, the wonderful magey habit of spamming identify on everything that doesn't move.
Then he runs away from a lot of orcs.

Ezel continues to the next level.
He encounters the nemesis of his ancestor, and bravely runs away.
Then he takes his anger out on poor wormtounge, by making him jog through half the level. And finally pokes him to death.
Then he looks at the loot and gets confused by his own bling.
After more running from orcs, he recalls. He finally has saved enough for a staff of teleport.

"Ezel the bowless mage on video"

Anyone else read this as "bowelless mage" at first glance? What an unfortunate lot in life that would be.

Of course maybe all characters are like that in Angband. They have to eat, but they never seem to have to... well, you know.

As someone who's just spent the day with a potty-training two-year-old, I found that really funny.

I also read it as "bowelless", but thought that meant "gutless", so basically "Ezel the cowardly mage". Obviously reference to his play stile :-)

Since you were surprised to not find healing potions at the alchemist: those are sold by the temple (the green store)

Really ? I havent played nightlies recently, but that seems to be a weird change. If anything, I would have moved restore potions to the temple, but healing magic definitely is priestly.
