Rungie the Gnome Mage

I'm playing my first wizard in Angband and, boy, is it tough! I'm 31 level, only gone down to 2000 ft. and have only found one of the better books (Resistances).

I just found Anglarang and the speed's helping. I'm wearing two rings of escaping - the only things keeping me going, I think.

Well, back to the mines... time for more creeping... :-)

Mages are effectively a challenge class for the first ~2/3rds of their lifespan. Good luck!

I believe "Rungie" is Gnomish for "run away!"

Finally found Raals. Rungie's now level 35 and he should be able to start diving a bit with the extra firepower.

Hrm... hit points of 700 and speed of +30 or hit points of 450 and speed of +50?

The extra HP, no question. Speed hits diminishing returns pretty sharply after +28.

Thanks! That's what I was leaning towards (helps against those surprise breath attacks) but I couldn't figure out a way to tell just how fast over +30 is during game play and if it was worth it.

Ha! Found Taratol just right before I found a pit of blue dragons.

Hrm... sling of buckland or Cubragol? I'm leaning towards carrying cubragol and switching to sling if I need to missle. The +10 speed is very nice.
