NPP 6.1 kobold rogue

So I usually play Vanilla, but I wanted to try a rogue, so I whipped one up for NPP..

So far I really like this little bugger, hes 15 and approaching dl20 (trying to knock around till I find some source of FA before I go much deeper) . He's knocked off Wormy and a couple of the orc uniques using archery and melee...got a dagger of flame early thanks to Smeagol..His stealth seems good even with no gear bonuses, and I love all the detection options from the mage books..makes getting the fights and objects I want from each level so darn convenient.. carrying my usual heal/escape kit (CCWs, ?PDs, _tele)..any advice as I sneak up on the midgame?

Are you setting traps? That's fun.

Ooo no, that sounds like mayhem, I'll give that a shot soon. And I hate blink dogs, just saying.

Nick makes a great point. Setting traps in NPP, like O or FA, works best when the creature is out-of-sight, so they don't see the trap being set.

I never thought about it before, but a rogue can probably have a lot of fun in a NPP labyrinth. Those levels are a trap-setting paradise. I now have to try this.

Can I recommend you upload your dump to the ladder? Tab at the top, then fill in the "submit your character" section.

I strongly recommend a source of resist cold and see invisible before heading any deeper. Below 2000' in NPP there are plenty of things that can hit you for 350+ hp in a single attack, so an extra couple points of CON will help as well.

Great weapon, though. That will help a lot.

Yeah desperately looking for SI and filling my resist holes before I hit dl40. Just got chased out of a lesser vault by Medusa...lured her into a corridor where she couldnt summon and she still kept knockin the snot out of me, gulping !speeds didnt help much. At least I bailed before she killed me, right?

Thanks for comments!
