Careful at DL26 without FA, a single ghoul and that char is probably history.

eleventh recall, DL0:

the potions are gone from the BM, but there is a single potion of Enlight to be had. As i shuffle out of the Black Market's back entrance, a dunk peasant yells at me "be careful without Free Action, one ghoul bite and you are history,he he he he". I nuke the drunk with a fire bolt for his disrespectful behaviour.

I get a new stash of recall and head back to the dungeon.

DL26:

recalling next to some water hounds. They hurt, and do some damage to my gear, but nothing i can't take.

i zap my TD and see only two treasures, and DM a bunch of black orcs and snagas. The level feeling comes back as .. drumroll .. 5-$.

I'm thinking of keeping the !Enlight for the next artifact, as this level seems to be empty of mobs. For now, i will keep it.

I make my way to the orcs and stumble on a staff of mapping, which reveals a small vault between me and the orcs. There's two werewolves in it, and a pseudo dragon. I kill everything and find a helm of intelligence +2, and The Band 'Alamin' (+11,+0), +3 INT, +4 DEX, rDis, See Inv, FA. Not the FA is was hoping for, but the FA i need right now.
An invisible spirit tried to hit me, but i detected it and nuked it. He tried to steal most of the drops from the vault ..

I try to keep the band as a swap, but run into yet another invisible vortex .. so i call it - +4 speed and see invisible. My SP have skyrocketed to 209.

I DM again and see nothing, so i TS to the other side of the map and detect .. some half orcs, a couple mushroom patches .. and i think i see a second vault. I make my way there and see a umber hulk, some stone trolls .. easy. I S2M the walls and pull the hulk with stinking cloud, then nuke it, nuke the troll priest, and the trolls.
I nuke everything, and Sangahyando of Umbar shows up, sans- his brother. I blink and find myself in a long corridor, where i conveniently nuke him with acid.
I DM again and see Kim, son of Mim, and Agamaite of Umbar. I'd like to pull them one by one .. but that doesn't happen.
I fail one out of two Haste castings (31% fail rate), hit Kim with Slow Monsters, then nuke him with acid. Anga shows up a couple rounds later, and i still have my Haste on, he hits me once, i blink and by luck line up perfectly to nuke him enough times to kill him without reprisal.

I still have my !Enlight, and decide whether to pick up all the magic weapons (no egos), or go down the stairs ...

stairs it is.

DL27:

stairs in a corridor, no mobs around .. DM shows stuff that belongs on DL15, i'm thinking of TS already. I move around to light up a couple rooms.

Level feeling is 4-2 ... oh well. i TS shamelessly, wind up next to some free XP in the shape of ogres. I do some S2M and find a room with an elf priest, a hydra, orcs.. i bail out, and thanks to the new pathfinding system, the hydra shows up immediately after my TS. I nuke it with Frost Bolt, and make my way back to that room. I clean up and finally find some nice leather gloves of FA [1, +11].

stairs again it is.

DL28:

entering in the southwest corner, i find nothing of value if not a !mana. I walk east to light up some rooms, and run into some light hounds, which i kill .. and then turn around to see Kim, furious at the man who killed his son.

Now, Kim resists both acid and fire, i default to MM, and keep blinking. His other son, Ibun, joins the fray, and i decide to test my 30% TO, which succeeds in sending him to the other side of the map, for now, and to the next life, later.

The battle with Kim is long; he resists everything i have, and can heal himself, but after a dozen blinks and maybe 60 MM, he finally dies, dropping the Hard Leather Cap of Elynia, [2,+20], +1 INT, rDark, sDex. I am not impressed.

A second DM reveals many more mobs, all in one room. This is still a 6-3 feeling and all i can hope for is a couple egos to sell. For now, my main target is Ibun.

I take a few tentative steps, kill some air hounds, which is enough time for Azog to pounce on me. Darn, time to TS.

So, Azog is a nice target ... i can kill him, Ibun, take their drops and head upstairs. Nice plan.

I DM to see what's around me, and identify a demi-vault. I decide to clear the area around me, and kill a few ogres and some carrion crawlers. While im holding down Acid Bolt, i quickly realize Ibun has found me and i'm targeting him. I phase, and Haste, and he follows me .. he can heal like his dad, but does not resist acid ... and he drops some useless arrows. I notice that the fight with Kim has left with one CL higher, at CL27, 176 HP, and 217 SP.

I breach the vault, blink to get away from a frost giant, and kill everything except for a colbran, which i decide to TO away. There's not much in the vault, a potion which turns out to be !Heal, some sellables, and .. 2 potions of !Enlight. PROFIT!

I decide that Azog gets to live another day, and recall to town.

twelfth recall, DL0:

there is nothing in town worth buying, except some basic consumables. i've long stopped using CLW and CSW, mostly due to the weight.
I drop two !Elinght at home and keep one, and venture forth in search of more artifacts... something with speed would be nice.

DL28:

i recall in the lap of a baby dragon, and nuke him and his poltergeist friend. DM shows me trolls and snagas, and a 6 for level feeling. I make my way to the snagas, and by the time i'm done nuking them, i know it's a 6-4 level. Going to stairs. Along the road, i meet Draebor, The Imp. He is a bit too close and hurts me quite a bit, but doesn't resist acid and so he dies before i have to blink.

Draebor decides to drop everything, and i get The Star 'Lobelpel', +2 Tunnel, rConf, FA. nice.
He also drops a shield with *every curse in the book*, -5 CON, -3 STR, aggravate, drainxp ...

and he also drops Raal's Tome Of Destruction. BADA-BING!

I cast all my newly acquired spells for a cool 2000 XP, then go murder some trolls. The trolls drop a new potion, which i quaff, losing a full point of INT to gain a point of DEX ...

I zap my Treasure Location, and see a hammer, when WOOSH, i'm hit by something strange ... my body begins to scramble ...

oh crap. i forgot most of my spells. i'm hit again .. i feel a force sucking me downwards ...

DL29:

starts with a LF 7-, which is promising. I kill a vampire, because i'm still angry that a vampire earlier on drained me of 1000 xp, so i nuke him. I follow a trail of soldiers, back to a soldier pit. The level feeling comes back as 7-$, and i quaff my Enlightment potion.

I slaughter the pit. Out of the carcasses, i pull The Maine Gauche of Seris, (1d5), (+14,+15), +1 blows, +4 spd. nice.

This isn't the artifact of the level feeling, so i keep searching. I have a brief encounter with some ice trolls and air hounds, which leaves me bruised but alive. I avoid a room with a mind flayer, as i have heard they are surprisingly nasty, and make my way to a tiny vault.

I quickly nuke the vault's inhabitants - a dark knight, some bats of gorgoroth, and i make away with .. The Star Of Foreg. Ah yes, Foreg, Sirin's brother. Foren was the stronger brother, and this Star gives +4 STR, +5 INT, and pFear. Nowhere near as useful as pConf now, but maybe later when i have it on some other item.

With only 2k XP to go, i try my luck with the mind flayer ..but sadly the encounter only nets me 500 xp or so, including his friends, rangers, thieves, golems ..

with the backpack full, and the dungeon empty, it's time to go back.

thirteenth recall, DL0:

i sell my drops, stash the two Stars at home, alone with !Enlight (keeping one), mana (keeping one), and mushrooms.

Nothing to buy at the BM. I check my quiver, my consumables, buy some more recall (keeping 5 spare) and stash 20 CCW at home, keeping 19.

DL29:

i recall in the bottom left corner of the map, and immediately see a long line of werebears .. this can mean only one thing.

And sure enough, Beorn shows up once i murder some of his were-buddies. He moves fast and i can't fight him here, so i TS, and find myself in the bottom right of the map. I light up a room, clear it, and Beorn foolishly chases me.

I have already DM' the area, and i know it's clear, so i just keep blinking. He doesn't resist fire, so i nuke him without much effort. He drops me some magic boots and a book of Godly Insights; i hear the pay a lot of money for this stuff, in town.

I zap my rods; i find that one of the rods i had just ID was a rod of mapping, which is very useful. It's a rather small dungeon level, but the feeling comes back again with 4-$, one more Star, perhaps.

I decide against using !Enlight, as i can cover this much map in a couple minutes. I find a lone, 5-headed hydra hiding, and i nuke it from far away, and ding!, i'm CL28, 186 HP, 225 SP.

I can finally DM the rest of the dungeon .. lots of trolls, a couple werebears, a few ghouls .. i can nuke this stuff easily.
I do meet my first qultlyug, which can make anyone's life a misery in a very short time, but this particular one has the decency to die right away.

I finish off the trolls, ghouls, and finally arrive to the artifact .. The Fur Cloak Of Nimor. +3 STR, +3 CON, +4 SPD .. pBlind. wow. seems tailor made for me (pun not intended).

TIME FOR SOME STAIRS !
