There is a decent chance to create a trap door, which allows you a way off of the level. That can be useful in any game.

Read it with 8 free squares around you to maximize your chances. I don't know the current rules, but in the old versions even hidden squelched items blocked placement of a new trap.

Heh, I thought maybe that's what it was for, but that seems a bit overkill when the person had 9 ?telelevels.

I haven't been able to find many super fast dives dumped on the ladder; is this Tales of a Bold Rogue on the ladder?

The person (Eddie Grove) is PowerDiver. If I am not mistaken, this character is on the ladder, at http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=7807.

As for Teleport Level, it's pretty important to conserve, since you can only find them in the dungeon and in the Black Market, and in the dungeon you don't have stacks of the things. The only character in 3.0.x who can afford not to conserve Teleport Level is a Mage or Priest with the relevant spellbook. You end up using them a lot later on, usually in situations where failure is not an option.

Basically, unreliable ?CreateStairs is pretty nice to have.

There should be an option to force-activate a trap. Teleport and trapdoor are useful, and summon too if you are suicidal.

I think the 'W' (Walk into a trap) command is what you are looking for. You can use it to go to the next level if you are next to a trap door.

In the tales, I posted the dumps of each dungeon visit as I went. That's a lot more useful than a single winner post.

I occasionally post chars to the ladder. You could look thru by my name.

Some of the turncounts are high, but check the comments. You have to expect ironman egoless to take a while. I impressed myself with my most recent ladder post. 3.a ironman with fewer slots is a hard game.
