If we're going thrall rogue dwarf is also a fun option. rblind works against destruction & you can move fast through the rubble.

There's a bit of a tension between race/class combinations which are good overall and those which are good for new players in the early game. My fear is that people lose 20 @'s over the course of an hour, get frustrated, and decide the comp is stupid. I think probably the best way to avoid that is to maximise stealth. There are definitely tactics to deal with less than stellar stealth, but they take time to learn. If you have high stealth then you have a reasonable chance of making it safely to Gondolin just by not waking up too many nasty things. You can instead wake things up and *destruct* them, but you don't have very many scrolls available, so it takes a bit of experience to know when and how to use them.

I probably won't do a thrall but perhaps a high difficulty FA race.

That seems like a bit of a wasted opportunity. The nice thing about comps is the opportunity to experiment with things which are unique to a particular variant.

Aren't those just the default settings.
Not sure what you meant by this.
