Unexpected drop!

So I've been killing a bunch of Kobold rogue characters (almost always because I try to take on a vault too hard for me) in a row today. I started with an awesomely lucky character that found everything early (artifact dagger on dlev 1, etc., that kind of luck), tons of artifact armor. You know the type of game: everything goes your way and you think "I got this!" then you do something stupid and die. Well then it was followed by the other kind of character: finds *nothing*, barely a "good" weapon at all, no damage output capacity at all, etc. Then while on my 4th or 5th try, I come across a sling of power and finally I can do some decent damage. Then while plowing through some popcorn on my way to some detected objects, I step on a ring a solder dropped and I get this huge long line, saying: "Ring of adamant, Nenya"!!! Holy crap, I can go many games without ever finding a single ring of power, not to mention finding it this early (dlev 10). Now the pressure's on!

That must be extremely rare.
Be careful, the RNG is playing with you.

This game is finally coming together. After Nenya, Haradekket came along and now I can finally deal out some decent melee damage. But yeah, gotta stay on my toes this game, I don't want to throw this one away.

Haha. Yeah, I've gotten the game pretty much to "totally won" now which means I'm just about to die.

... Am I the only one who looked at the thread title and thought it was about poll numbers, before remembering that this is an Angband board?

Anyway, cool find. Elven rings are awesome in V.

(Now just try to avoid getting overconfident. :P )

Wow. Amazing luck. Time to kill Smaug. How about a character dump?
