Yet another new player

Well, I have only just started playing roguelikes a few days ago. But I am doing fairly well in Angband now, first played nethack but I liked 'band variants more. Currently level 6 High-Elf warrior, only down to like dl8...found smeagol and kill him. Got a Cutlass Holy Avenger (1d7) (+12,+9) [+4] from him, currently my main weapon. This is my best game so far, I found smeagol on level 3 too. Is that unusual to find him that early into the dungeon?

He sometimes even lurks around on level 1.
And steels all you money!
With see invisible from yoru high elf he might have been less annoying than usual. ^^

He was fairly easy, the worst part was him poofing and having to find him again. That was rather obnoxious.

Also, could someone tell me how to export a character dump of one that is still alive?

Try <Shift> + 'C' to get to the character screen, then 'F' to dump to a file.

I'm playing on Ubuntu, and whenever I try that it says "Character dump failed!"

What made you pick a High Elf as a warrior? They have a penalty to STR. EDIT: Wait, nevermind. They're pretty much Dunadans but more stats.

Strange. What do the following commands say, when you just exit from your game?

pwd
which angband
ls -R ~/.angband

I saved the game I was playing and clicked the X on the window, then typed this into the terminal I used to open the game into the first place:

tomek@tomek:~$ pwd
/home/tomek
tomek@tomek:~$ which angband
/usr/games/angband
tomek@tomek:~$ ls -R ~/.angband
/home/tomek/.angband:
Angband ZAngband

/home/tomek/.angband/Angband:
monster.txt Tomek lvl 17 D Tomek.prf Tomek.txt x11-settings.prf

/home/tomek/.angband/ZAngband:
tomek@tomek:~$

Oh, that one should have been

ls -Rl ~/.angband

But, isn't Tomek.txt your character dump?

Yes, but when it prompts me to overwrite it for the new dump, it says the character dump failed. Do I need to make a new file for every dump I make? What if I just want to update my current dump?

Sounds like a file/directory permissions issue...like it will let you write, but not delete the old file so that you can save a file of the same name. Did you check the directory/file permissions?
