Yeah, but a mighty 2.5dpr is not to be sniffed at!

It could have been worse... half orc-mage, in my experience, that's the worst combination for mages of all.

Bad mana? What're you talking about; half-trolls get innate regeneration!

It depends on strategy. I like to play extreme sniper/diver as a mage (Cl 18 dl 33 recently.) . That means min fail and max number of spells from full mana. H/T is optimized for mowing down big crowds and stopping to rest in the middle.

How about a dwarf rogue next? They're surprisingly viable in my experience.

I'm tired of the TO away/loot/go down/repeat characters... Next time why not a pure unbeliever (some variants have those)?

I don't really know what that means in English (I think you just described angband in a nutshell) but if you give me a specific variant/class/race combo, I'm happy to oblige anything I can compile and that the ladder can parse.

Poschengband Android berserker???

I was more thinking of a half-ogre barbarian unbeliever from tome 2.3.5.

If somone builds the savefile I'd be happy to set up that comp. I don't know anything about tome and I have no desire to learn
