I can't decide if I hate the RNG more than my own stupidity.

I was running a V ironman HE ranger. He'd struggled down past DL50 with nothing better than a dagger of extra attacks and a crappy randart short bow when both his -TOs exploded and his only copy of MB3 was burnt. No id, no satisfy hunger, no food, little hope.

He detected a single ration of food which kept him going until he found 2?Satisfy Hunger. Then a kindly black orc dropped MB3! Things were looking up again. Then over the next few levels he found a Crown of the Magi {ESP}, a randart Great Hammer {+3 attacks}, a randart longbow {+3 to power}, a Sling of Extra Shots, an Elvenkind Shield {rConf}, _Speed and an !Augmentation. All of a sudden he could take care of himself.

Then temptation was presented to him: A long, long corridor of Algoroths, the escort of a certain departed Stone Troll. I commited the first deadly sin of Angband. I held down the arrow key and ploughed through the poor sods. Oh how I was enjoying my guilty pleasure... but then... tombstone. The room at the end of the corridor contained time hounds.

You are just a man. Hopefully you savored the moment of weakness, short as it was.

I enjoyed it more than I expected. It was like sticking my fingers up at the RNG - unfortunately the RNG always laughs last.

It's got all the classic ingredients - the high-born fallen on hard times, the struggle with adversity, the triumph, the moment of hubris, the tragic fall... you should sell the rights.

That's what all of us are waiting for: "Angband - The Movie"!
A tragic hero in his epic fight against evil. With stunning effects!
