DL30:

this doesn't seem a level like the others .. it's .. almost .. a maze.

i zap my rods and then DM, and i see a bunch of black orcs and uruks, too close for comfort, a pukelman, which has a ton of hp, and Ufthak of Cirith Ungol. I avoid him, keeping close to the outer walls, but it's apparent my efforts were for nothing. He doesn't wake up at all, and when the level feeling returns a measly 3-3, i decide to leave by the stairs.

DL31:

i'm in a large room with some black, and dead, ogres. i nuke them and detect .. bats of gorgoroth, more ogres, a tengu .. the level feeling is 7-7.
I kill the bats and find a new potion, which turns out to be Intelligence, yay!
I get back my point lost earlier and am back to 18/100 natural and 18/200 modified. I'm curious as to what that -7 might be, but i know i can leave anytime.

I TS. I then DM again and see a vault and a large room, both of which should have goodies and XP in them.

I decide to take a minute to squelch the vast majority of drops.

I head to the large mob room, and i am surprised by a Death Quasit .. he hits me twice, i panick, and teleport him away.
I clear the room of harmless mobs, and find nothing. I make my way to the vault, knowing that quasit will pop up again anything soon.

And it does. I try nuking him with acid, and just keep at it until it dies.. i now have DEX 11, but i was going to eat a mushroom of vigour anyway, so i'm not bothered.
Also, he drops boots of speed (+3) .. how nice of him.

I'm finally at the vault, and inside i DM just a ton of ogres. Whoops .. looks like i misspoke. One of those ogres is Lokkak, the Ogre Chieftain, and i do not have the mana nor the willpower to kill him, so i TO him away.

Time to raid this vault and recall to town.

The total loot is 3 potions of Enlightment, two magic armors to sell, one potion of CON, which brings me HP to 225, a second potion of INT to sell, and two ego weapons also to sell. Let's hope there is some good stuff in the BM ...

fourteenth recall, DL0:

i sell everything, and can now count over 100.000 Gold in my possession. Unfortunately, nothing useful to buy in town, but as i have pConf, pBling, and +15 base speed, i can now take on most mobs this side of DL40.

DL31:

another artifact!

I recall in an empty room, just south of a room containing Ulfast and Ulwarth, sons of Ulfang. I S2M a tunnel, haste, and Slow them down one by one. They are weak uniques, and die almost immediately. A lesser Maia is also in the room, it doesn't wake until i fire bolt it.

I quaff my Enlightment potion, and make my way to the demi-vault i see southeast of me. Only ogres, so i clear it, but a Greater Maia shows up, and i cannot kill it, so i TO it away. He keep showing up every now and then, but i can just re-TO it.

out of the vault, i get some sellables, and the Pendant of Corion, +3 STR, pStun.

Stairs down ..

DL32:

no !Enlight, and the level feeling is 6-. I kill some brigands and light up a room, then zap / DM and see a chequer room, so i make my way there. I kill some more brigands and half orcs, then a 2-headed hydra shows up. I kill it, and a couple more hydras show up .. all coming from a rectangular room from the north .. oh dear.

Its a hydra pit and i dont want to lose all my consumables to their breaths. I TS a couple times until i find a safe room. The level feeling shows 6-3, no artifacts this time around.

I try to build a safe area, but the hydras are on to me. I TS again and have to fight a huge crowd of wolves and ice trolls. I finally manage to clear a corner of the dungeon and rest, and a single hydra shows up .. i can't be bothered. i read a recall.

sixteenth recall - grab a potion, head back.

DL33: level feeling 3-4, find a new potion of !Enlight, head to the stairs.

somewhere along the way i must have levelled up, to CL29, 225 HP, 233 SP.

I go look for some stairs, and ID a potion of STR.

DL34: terribly dangerous.

Ufthak is here, in a small vault. I clear the area around from a couple vampires, then i open the vault. There is Smeagol here, and an Enchantress - my primary target, as she can ruin my day in no time. I kill her, but a multi-hued dragon shows up and i need to teleport out.
I kill some minor mobs, and ID a potion .. a potion of Toughness, and i lose AGAIN a point of INT.

I head back to the vault, and the first Dreads of the game show up. Fortunately i have plenty of room and i fire bolt them both to death.

I get back to fight that adult dragon, and have to MM it to death, which cost me a single CCW.
I finish off the trolls and Ulfthak, and while he doesnt drop anything useful, the vault has two artifacts, The Large Metal Shield of Beolf [12, +16], +3 STR, +5 DEX, and the Leather Gloves 'Numog', [1, +16], +5 CON, rPois, FA. these will be my primary gloves for quite a while.

Looking at the map, there could yet be more stuff here, so i TS and i find myself next to a checker room, and sleeping in a corridot is Tom, The Stone Troll.
Bert is the next to wake up, but by the time he does, Tom is dead. Bill follows suit, and Nar, The Dwarf, decides it's a good idea to charge at me down the same corridor where 3 huge trolls just got nuked by acid blasts.
None of the drop any artifacts, but Nar drops Resistances Of Scarabatrice; not that i desperately need it now (as there are no big breathers yet), but it's useful to have.

Out of pure scruples, i clear the last room in the dungeon, and i find a new scroll, which happens to be Acquirement and which results in The Wicker Shield 'Amros', +4 SPD, rDark, rDis; this could be useful later on, so i will stash it at home.

Ok, i'm fully loaded, let's see if there is anything new in town.

seventeenth recall, DL0:

well well well .. the BM has a stack of eleven potions of Augmentation .. obviously, i can only afford one, and i'm not so sure it's money well spent, either, but hey. What else am i going to buy, amirite?

I quaff the cerulean potion, and feel FANTASTIC !!

my current stats are STR 18/40, INT18/200, WIS 13, DEX 18/50 and CON 18/90.
I could take off the ring of Escaping and wear a ring of STR and probably hit 100 Dmg/round.

DL34:

i feel i could milk this DL for more, but i do not want to anger the gods, so i push on towards the 40s.
I kill a few algoroths, since they are free exp; and i try to grab a couple treasures to get the level feeling, and stumble upon a potion of STR!

Quaff the potion, level feeling 5-6, i'm not going to bother.

DL35:

This place seems murderous!

It's a cave level .. nope, it's a regular level, i was just near a round room. I see the edges of a vault, and i see some Mumaks, also known as XP Bags, in the Dunedain tongue.
Each Mumak is 3000 xp, with no effort at all. I also get a level feeling 8-$, great.

I quaff my Enlightment potion, and yes, it's a vault, and there's also nothing else in the whole dungeon. I see an Ancient Green Dragon, a Chaos Drake .. and Radagast.
Fortunately he's locked inside a walled room, so i will clear everything, TO the dragons, and once the dungeon is clear, TO radagast.

Holy Smokes, i step into the outer vault area and find a potion of Augmentation! wohoo!
My CON spikes up to 18/116 and my HP jump to 326.

I follow the plan .. almost to the letter. I remember that the dragon is in one spot, so i dont let him out, and i accidentally let out Radagast. I pray that he doesnt do anything insane, and he doesn't, so i TO him.
I then get all angry and nuke the dragon. Stupid dragon. He was sitting on the Cloak 'Nimastil', +3 DEX, +3 Stealth, +1 SPD. I strongly doubt i will be using this, but i stash it for now, as the armorer only pays 5000 gold max.

I find another !CON on the floor, and then i look at the room next door, kill a Death Drake, and he drops yet another, so now i have CON 18/148 and 382 HP.

Time to recall!

eighteenth recall .. DL0:

i notice i have two full stacks of CCW at home. I know i will need these later on, but it's tempting to sell them.
Someone richer than me has raided the BM and all the !Aug are gone.

i drop the cloak, grab a single Enlightment potion, and recall for one more artifact.

DL35:

i recall right next to some ice trolls, and Lokkak shows up while i'm nuking them. I use one action to Magic Map, avoid him with my +15 speed, and blink. I keep blinking, watch my mana, nuke all the mobs and eventually wind up in a corridor where i can Haste and finish nuking Lokkak. It really does help to have a ton of mana.

Lokkak kindly drops the Flail of Borno, (2d6) (+5,+10) , +4 CON, +2 Blows.

I walk around to get a level feeling, and it comes to 5-5, but i see Boldor, King Of The Yeeks, and i decide to nuke him.
I nuke left and right, and a mix of resist fire and resist acid mobs pile up, so i wind up using all my mana .. but they are small mobs, and i take off my ring of Escaping, and maul them with my Main Gauche.

Stairs!

DL36:

i can now cast Treasure Detection, but i prefer to keep my staves for now. I see some ogres, and nuke them.

I dig S2M hole to get to the next room, and i find .. and undead beholder.
Now, these floating balls of pus resist everything, so i TO it away and start looking for stairs. I still have my !Enlight, and this level is a 7-5 feeling - no reason for me to hang around.

I head for the stairs, but see some Mumaks, and i go back to get my XP. Enough xp in fact, to ding! CL31, HP 390, SP 248.

I'm almost at the stairs, when the undead beholder sends a nuke my way .. i lose 200 HP and get cut. I Teleport Other with panic, quaff some CCW, and descend to a new level.

DL37:

as soon as i step off of the stairs, i'm hit by some force .. most likely impact hounds.
yep, but it's only one. Killing it takes forever, as it keeps knocking me out of LoS, but finally it goes down.

Cave level .. cave levels are bad because they are harder to light up. Also, levle feeling 4-3 .. i recall.
