What to do with items

I just had my best run since I've been playing Angband. I have played less than 10 games, so most of you will laugh at how pitiful it was. I got CL9 and ended up getting killed, indirectly, by a druid on level 13. I used a Descent scroll, not knowing what it did yet, and ended up lower than I should have been. (Actually, I misremembered that. I think I just went down quicker than my ability allowed for)

Anyways, my question is, what do you do with all the items you pick up along the way? I had to make a lot of trips back up to the town to empty my full inventory several times, often picking up another full load before I descended back where I recalled from. Should I just not be so OCD and pick everything up? Will being able to judge if an item is worthy to grab come in time?

A lot of stuff is just a waste of space. If you have trouble wanting to sell everything, try turning on no-selling mode. It sounds harsh, but the option also rebalances the gold drops so you wind up with reasonable cash levels without the OCD hauling.

Definitely agreed with no-selling; in exchange for not being able to get money from selling items, you find more gold in the dungeon, so you end up with about the same amount of cash anyway. And you no longer have to consider an item's potential resale value; the only reason to pick up an item is if you think you'll use it.

Finally cl 9 dl 13 is fully survivable. You do need to know which monsters to avoid at your current power... and you aren't likely to learn this shallower than 800' or deeper.

If you read a Word of Recall while in town, you will move back down to the dungeon level you recalled from, so you don't have to take the stairs back down. As longs as each trip back to town gives items worth more than the cost of 2 WoR scrolls, feel free to do it, it is more a question of whether you as a human player are willing to go through the hassle. You will also notice that later on, money is not that important, almost all the useful items will be found in the dungeon not bought from stores.

One more thought... in the options screen (press '=') have you got 'pick up everything' on, rather than just 'pick up items that match your inventory'?
(or words to that effect)

It is on 'pick up items that match your inventory', but I was manually grabbing everything.
