Frot (HT Paladin) DAR

First try in a long time at this race/class combo. Starting a DAR to let you know how it goes. Playing with randarts on. Not particularly confident with his end game potential so hopefully we'll get some good randarts that will boost the areas that this chart is lacking in.

So I made it to about @lvl 25 or so last night then decided to go out and have a few drinks with some friends. It turns out that it wasn't a few drinks and I ended up having more than I planned to. So when I got home I was pumped to sit down and play a little more..... huge mistake. Decided to take on Beorn with no substantial AC, normal speed, about 4 HCW, and no teleports . So needless to say we're gonna start again without playing while in my cups.

Honestly in my mind I thought I had him.

Well known fact: don't drink and dive.

Damn I really feel like I missed an opportunity to get that in myself.

I disagree, and I believe I have said so before on this forum. I didn't find the original, but I did find a couple suggestive posts

Ha. Reading those actually reminds me of myself playing after a few drinks. Just walking around killing everything you can find because they gave me some look (probably). I swear the one that always catches me is Lagduf. Mindlessly clearing a vault or hallway full of Snagas then I'm dangerously low on hp and really confused as to why. His character model is so hard to discern from the others (being color blind doesn't help much, which is also why I cant play with the "no graphics" option). Ah well was having a blast. Found a nice spear with a venom brand and even found an early dropped msm of resist. When I realized how bad I had misplayed I spent probably 5 minutes looking at the overall map and my inventory trying desperately to find that one way I could survive..... it wasn't there lmao.

Think I'm done playing for the day though. SPL open bracket is finally finished and I want to watch some of the key games.

I have to agree with Pete Mack (I LOL'd ); I'd play ten times more recklessly than I already do if I ever attempted Angband drunk. Hell, I wouldn't even make it out of the town alive.

I learned to respect Beorn and Azog very early in my Angband career. I remember being horrified how quickly Azog pummeled me the first time I made it passed DL20 and a similar experience with Beorn probably in the mid 30s or so. I still can't keep straight the lesser unique orcs, though.

Oh it hardly takes Guinness to run blindly into monsters.
Watch out for orange orcs.

I actually survived a carrion attack when without FrAct not long ago. I think I had over 200 health and probably decent AC. My numbers were in the red when I finally got to have a turn again, though. I was pleased when I gained FrAct not too long after that unpleasant encounter. It was a good experience, though. Usually in my games I have FrAct before I ever see a carrion crawler, so it was fun going around shooting arrows at them and trying to explore a level while I knew they were lurking nearby.
