Without rPois, Winged Horror isn't so pathetic as all that. It breathes poison for 340 HP; Dark and Nether for 170. But with 18 base CON and a Ring of Con, you'd have survived.

Yay, the luck gods are smiling on me this game! (playing normal forced descent game)

1. Orc Shaman dropped me a wand of TO on DL34
2. Picked up a ring of speed <+9> (LF: 3-9) on DL39
3. The very next level had a large oval vault where I picked up a helm of Telepathy, but was careless about traps and fell through a trap door to the next level (I had no trap detection at that point) before I got to see what other goodies might line therein; though there was Tensers Transformations, so there may not have been much else good.
3. Just picked up a rod of TO on DL53 (LF: 5-8). Let's see what other goodies await me on this level. Don't think a rod of TO would give a 8 LF at DL53, but maybe? It is so huge though. Rods of TO are like... the best.

I was thinking it'd be fun if there was a new amulet type; a good luck charm (not sure what it would be called). But basically, like searching and infravision, it could have a value between <+1> and <+8>, which would determine by how much it would increase the chance of something good being dropped from monsters (and maybe chance of good stuff being generated at the start of each level). <+1> might represent 10% increase in quality of items being generated/dropped and <+8> might represent an 80% increase in quality drops/items generated.

EDIT: So far this game, diving fairly quickly, I've encountered 4 Tensers on my way to DL53.

So I YASD that character trying to get into a vault. A loooooooong hallway at the top of the vault caused me problems. Whenever I'd ?phase out of the vault to wait for my rod of TO to recharge I'd end up in the hallway, and then I'd have to teleport away. And invariably I teleported next to Gluarung, except I was wearing a second ring of speed I had picked up on the level, and not the ring of poison I had also picked up on the level, and father of dragons breathed poison.

In other news, just picked up a rod of speed on DL12. We'll see if I can avoid killing this one off prematurely.

EDIT: 2 potions of brawn, the Phial and Colannon and the feeling is only 5 on DL24. I guess that's about right, but when I found the Phial I thought I had found everything of worth on the level. Guess not!

Lol, picked up boots of speed <+4> a few levels ago and just now a <+6> RoS on DL32. I love it when hitting the down stairs in quick succession doesn't burn me. So my native speed is +12 and I have a rod of speed; on DL32.

EDIT: I'm beginning to think "Star" light source is kinda garbage. I'd rather light a room than map my surroundings. If Star would recharge faster it'd be a good item, but its recharge rate makes it pretty bad.

You found a vault.
You do not have TO.
You must flee the vault.

I feel like more than any single object, TO is like make or break. Even with temporary speed of +25 at DL41 I have to abort the vault because I can't TO Shelob. At least I came away with Thalkettoth from Arokhil the Blind, but I lost my ring of damage (0,+8) because I tried on an unknown ring while my backpack was full and had to ?phase out when a Crystal Drake showed up. I killed the Crystal Drake, but as I was going to check out the loot the ghosts dropped from inside the vault, Shelob showed up and I had to ?phase out again, and there was no way to get back into the vault without Shelob chasing me down. I almost managed it, though, because I phased into a checkered room and Shelob followed me into it and then I teleported out when she got close to a perfect room that leads back to the checkered room and the entrance to the vault. My plan was to get close to the entrance of the vault, then ?phase and hope to land closer to it, close the door to the checkered room, haste self and watch the door as I'd run down the hallway in the vault and if the door didn't burst open then I'd be safe in the first arm of the spiral vault. If the door bust open and I'm not close to the end of the first arm of the spiral, then I abort the mission, but I fat fingered ?teleportation instead of ?phase and forgot to !* the ?Teleportation. I think that plan mighta worked. Not sure how close I have to be to shelob before she starts pursuing me again, though.

Anyway, base speed +15 at DL41 is nothing to sneeze at. I also lost Arvedui as I donned Thalkettoth, but it's not such a big deal since I have rNexus covered with Colannon and base resists with shield.

here is something i did recently.

1. wear 2x rings of escaping, 1 elven cloak, 1 pot of speed. tot: + 19 spd
2. break mini-vaultl; Beorn comes out to try to kill me.
3. run away through cleared dungeon.
4. when on the far side of the dungeon, teleport.
5. go back to vault, loot, recall.

all this effort for a spellbook (i'm a warrior); what can you do, it was 9-9.

That's a good strategy. Luckily with the vault I just found I also found a scroll of destruction a dungeon level or two earlier so I was able to lure all the things I wasn't able to deal with out and destruct. It actually worked perfectly. I didn't even destroy the small chest in the top of the vault because a master thief picked up the items at the top of the vault, where Harowen and Itanagast were. It worked perfectly, and I only had to remain in Itanagast's line of sight for two turns (the first turn the bolt missed the sleeping young black dragon blocking Itanagast from moving up to the top of the vault). At 295HP I *think* I would have survived his fire breath, but maybe not. He breathes for 733. 733/3 = 244.



This is a good example of where too much stealth is a bad thing.

Also remarkable is that the only three mushrooms I've ID'd this game are the only 3 mushrooms I need to know:
1. Clear Mind
2. Second Sight
3. Vigor.

EDIT: Since I play on a laptop keyboard; when I am playing cautiously, like in this vault, I tend to not press two arrow keys at the same time to move diagonally and and up moving over instead of diagonally. Something just breathed lightning destroying an un-ID'd rod and wand. With my luck one of them was TO.

Two iron helms of telepathy, and my first artifact weapon, though. Next level, quite, normal level; Dor-lmin lying in a hallway. I will be wearing this for a long time.

On a keyboard you should be able to use the number pad (or the numbers at the top) to move diagonally. 1 is down left, 3 down right, 7 up left, 9 up right. (2,4,6, and 8 are down, left, right, and up respectively while 5 is rest.)

I do do this sometimes, but I've been trying to move away from it since it's a bit cumbersome to do half my movements at the top of the keyboard and the other half using the keypad. Really, I was just commenting on the slight irony of being more prone to input undesired movements when nervous and being cautious.

I found some fairly fitting music for Angband: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bhceZgdWFM

This synth dungeon music is pretty good, too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p99R2G2QowA

If anyone knows any good mood-setting music to listen to while playing please share.

In other news, my character is becoming quite the boss. Kavlax dropped me another <+6> RoS and shield of the Haradrim. Now Haradrim is one of those awesome pieces of gear that would be way over the top OP if it *also* provided the base resists. How many games have I so sadly had to leave it in my home because I couldn't cover crucial high resists, and the base resists wearing it. Well, whaddya know, I'm wearing Dor-lmin. GG, dungeon. GG.

Basically all I need now is Himring and Weaponmastery and I'm good as golden (and later on an endgame weapon).

Yay, that {tried} rod (no monsters were around when I tried it) was a rod of TO! My base speed is +20. This is insane. Now I just need a ring of Damage.

I thought warriors got 6 rounds with all weapons? This beaked axe I'm wielding and the pick of Erebor I just picked up both max out at 5 rounds. In other news, just upgraded my boots of speed to <+9> bringing my base speed to +26 when not weighed down.

Some of the very heaviest weapons max out at 5.2 or 5.3 blows per round, no matter if STR and DEX are both 18 *** maxed. E.g., Grond, Deathwreaker, The Glaive of Pain, etc.

Well, beaked axe is not very heavy so I don't get it. Woops, my bad, it's not maxed. Looks like it's going to go up to 6.0 rounds as I thought it would. Just found a longbow of power (+20, +15). Surely it's stats are backwards? Oh well.
