Only Half-Orc's get inherited rDark, not Half-Trolls. Resist darkness isn't that useful around that level anyways, but deeper down it'll help against those heavy hitting darkness storms.

Firsts are always good, and first artifact weapon is a big one. Taratol is good, too - useful as a main weapon for quite a while, and good as a swap for ImmElec for the whole game.

Good spot, he is indeed a Half-Orc, but as you say the rDark isn't in play yet.

Was last seen at DL31 having just hit CL31. Has got rPois but still no FrAct so I don't want to push him much further at present, but he seems to be one lucky paladin: he experienced the most benign nexus scrambling ever, one which swapped his 18/36 CON and his 18/38 STR.

Not really vanilla, but in the same kind of vein, so I thought I'd post it here: A new PosChengband character of mine found a "oTelepathy at dungeon level 13 -- it was dropped by a Cave Orc... or maybe I got my words wrong and it was just Orc Cave 13? Either way, pretty lucky find:

Wrath of God lying around on DLvl 6.
Of course I was a mage, go figure.

And, less spectacularly, though it had a great impact on my playstyle:
The realization that the no-sell 600 GP you get are enough for EXACTLY 2 town books, 2 ?WoR, 4 ?PD, 5 Torches, 5 Flasks of Oil and 5 Rations at 11 CHR.

Well, of course. Exact opposite happens when you are playing a priest. It's the RNG way of mocking you.

I'm still not convinced that 'red when you want green, green when you want red' isn't coded into the game.

Nah, it is purely an accident that I've found "Wrath of God" early with both of my 3.3.2 Mages while I've had real problems getting Kelek's (I'm on 94 currently and *still* haven't found it even with my glacial pace).

My current paladin resorted to buying Green 5/6/7. On the one hand this represents a triumph for the Black Market; on the other it shows how mean the RNG was being. Don't recall the depth but he was definitely CL50 before he found 'Wrath'.

The Black Market purchases were funded by the discovery of whole libraries of significant red books, naturally...

Yeah, it's even more frustrating, considering I play no-sell.
And I'm lucky if I find Resistances of Scarabtarices before DLVL 70, but that said, I dive roughly at the speed of a downward-aimed missile, so there's that.
