Congratulations on the win! I first started playing 2.7.8 way back in 1997, didn't win legitimately until 3.0.5 in about 2005. I've probably won with every version since but really struggling with the latest nightlies thanks to the monster upgrades - this is a good thing by the way! I feel the changes take the game back towards the difficulty of older versions (pre-3.0), but with much better features and UI.

I know Geoff Hill (University of Warwick) still hangs out on this forum occasionally, so at least one of the original developers still has an interest in the game.

Using Eddie Grove's "Tales of the Bold" (archived on google groups in a few threads on rec.games.roguelike.angband) as a strategy guide might change that. I found the game strategically easier (if tactically more difficult) when I took his advice. He was one of the earliest diving evangelists, back in the day.

Watching Fizzix's "Let's Play Angband" series on YouTube was what got me to be able to start winning.

I dunno, I almost feel like winning might spoil it for me. "Man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's heaven for?"

That said, I'm at a point in my current game where I'm absolutely stumped for which gear to carry. I'm doing well enough that I should probably start a thread and beg for help before I screw it up.

I haven't talked to Geoff since I left Warwick. The only person who had any of the early angband inspiration who I am still in contact with is James (just James for his privacy) who was the person the shopkeeper Rincewind the Chicken was named after {;-)
