Lightless Rogue

The following is an account of a thrilling adventure.

I was playing kobold rogue. At clvl 23/24. I was playing no_selling and I went in without the WoR hoping to get it inside the dungeon. Then near the start of 1050', my light ran out. I hadn't yet found a lit room. I groped in the darkness feeling the walls as I move.
Ironically the first monster I face after this was a pack of light hounds. They breathe light and make the blind blinder. But when the blindness wore off I had my patch of light.
I blindly(actual meaning) killed the Z and was immediately confronted with an orc unique and his minions. Low on health I cast a phase door. I reached other place in the darkness. I drank some CCWs and by this time the orcs came to fight. This was the only time I think Infravision seemed so improtant (other than avoiding early Smeagol). Finally maganged to slay all the orcs. Then went to the light patch and extended it into a room using call light. Then I come face to face with a 5-headed hydra. The fight went on till I drunk my last CCW and a phase door landed me outside the illuminated room. I now had to fight it. Just when I had nearly 20 HP left the M fleed in terror. Then I detected for treasure. No ~ at all nor any !Oil. There was one unId scroll. My best chance of escape was if it was WoR . I blindly(usual sense) illuminated all the corridor to it (I could have simply picked it up brought it to the illuminated room). With a Whip{splendid, Defender} I was able to recover mana very easily. The scroll turned out to be acquirement. And it acquired a Phial . Thus ended the lightless run for my rogue.

Soon I found a WoR (maybe in the same of next level.)
I think he was really lucky on 3 counts:
1. Encountering the light hounds
2. Being a rogue to detect treasure
3. ?Acquiring the Phial.

The Whip{splendid, Defender} was inscribed so. Something that resists acid, fire, cold and lightning, sustains dexterity, speeds regeneration, prevents paralysis and gives plus to AC doesn't get recognised as (Defender). One has to find a pit trap and walk into it to get it auto-identified.
