Sangband Dwarf dual wielder

After numerous attempts, I got one I like. Power lv 9. Killed dogs, the guard and the hobbit so far.

Going for high score. 304 so far. Dual wield will come likely at stat gain. Main skills will be sword, dodge, spell res. Some disarm later? Maybe forging later. Kobold lord will be tougher - need better armor. And Bill Feeny is my best friend. Acid brand and a see invis lantern. Once I got to swing at the hobbit he dropped in 1 round! The guard in 2.

Had the lv8 equivalent of a vault. 14 yellow yeeks?! a plethora of novice priests and paladins. Ouch! He survived thanks to pd and tele. And a lot of 1 shots. This char really packs a punch despite his lv 11 power. Still hunting for kobold lord and worntongue. Conf plus slow plus afraid = suck, just to add emphasis to the above. As does a gang of acid types who aren't bothered by resist acid (I'd be dead without it).

Xorzac marches on.

Can't figure out how to kill wormtongue? His spells HURT and he disappears after he takes a set of swings. I can't even begin to dmg him enough. Really need poi res but have only found acid fire and cold.

Think I will skip him for now. A glance at top ladder dumps showed a high char lvl when killing him and earliest dlvl was 11.

So back to 7 to find kobold lord.

Kobold lord easy kill - escorts managable. Lucky I caught them in a corridor. Wormtongue - this is too funny. Scroll of monster confusion!! Laughably easy. Oh potion of speed too. Weapon is acid short sword +8 +6. Love that sword. Thanks again feeny.

Score 436 - puzzling the kobold lord gave me 27 and wormtongue 103? That much dif? I probably raised sword too high for this point - melee is rated very good. So room for improvement.

Got a rod of lb but useless right now - bought it for later. I figure a small md invest wont hurt much later.

Off to lv 9 and broda.

The dlv 9 and 10 uniques are gone. Sangband has "super stairs"? I played a lot of zangband years ago ( even got to dlv 63 on nightmare mode), so I'm not familiar with stairs that move you 2 lvls. Score 682 - Brodda did not give much - maybe because the snaga chief went first? Monster confusion makes these easy but I only have 1 scroll left. :/ only been getting 1 item drop too - and snaga dropped iron ore??? What a waste.

Edit: Though I will take it over the +2 cloak brodda dropped! Suck.

Still hunting for orfax. Got a rop +10, which is nice. AC of 58 now. Boosted dodge and sr to 12 each. Sword at 21. Power 12 hp 71. Not too bad. Sav is fair dodge usually iffy. I carry alot of scrolls.

Orfax dead. He was easy but avoiding the clay golem was not! Edge resistance really sucks. Score 725.

Going to add some to sword for the hp - 71 is too low. Hurts score but better than dead.

Bye bye clay golem. Bye bye skeleton kobolds.

Archery sucks. Anyway, my new quest: you must kill 11 ochre jellies. I hated them in Z! Pure acid. My weapon happens to be acid. Time to get another weapon.

You don't want to melee pretty much any "j" enemy if you can help it. I can't remember Sangband too well, but if it sells Phase Door scrolls in town, then you should stock up on those and some ammo for your missile weapon.
