DL11:

again, not much to kill here, but i need 280 XP and so i'm gonna clean up. A brief walk down a corridor reveals this is a 3-7 level feeling!

I quickly dispatch a single acolyte who was hiding two staves, but i run into a dead end, so i TS; i have 84 HP so i'm not worried. I stumble upon a bear, a third staff, and a rod of Treasure Location. I zap it, find some treasure, but nothing that would warrant a LF 7, so i TS again, and wind up in a room full of orcs. I think i can rest + nuke them, but then decide to hide in a corridor.
The orcs wake up, but they don't know i'm carrying a rapier of *Slay Orc*.

I make short work of the bunch, and level up. ding!, CL16, 91 HP and 24 SP.

I zap the rod a couple more times, i can't find any other treasures, so i move to the other side of the map. I run into a suspicious large number of snagas, nicely alligned in a corridor .. Lagdulf must be close by, and sure enough, he pops out and eats a bunch of fire bolts, with me failing only 2 out of 7 castings (22% fail rate). I find some stairs, a shovel, and a wand.

DL12:

and it's a 3-8 feeling!!

I walk down the stairs to a baby red dragon and bear, which i nuke easily. I find a lance (+0, +0) but decide against lugging around the 30Lbs of wood and steel.
I do some detecting, and i see two orc uniques, Golfimbul and Grishnak, with a dozen or so orcs with them .. this is gonna take some time. There is also a stegocentipede nearby .. these things move really fast and hurt real bad, but they will die to a couple fire bolts .. i need to be in a corridor or in the open to kill it.

I make my way to the orc encampment, and i kill 5 orcs. i DM a line of orcs .. and decide to Lightning Bolt them. Bad Mistake.

I dont have enough mana to finish the job, the orcs die but Golmfinbul is on me, i !Phase a few times and finally i have 6 SP and TS.

I TS into a room with a tiger... crap. The tiger uses up my last !phase, and my CLW, but eventually i kill it. Some more orcs, from a different spot, gang up on me, so i TS. Golmfimbul keeps harassing me. I waste some SP on Fire Bolt and o.0 discover he resists fire. I try my luck with Acid Bolt, fail 1 casting, land 2, and then melee him. I quickly quaff an unknown potion (what could go wrong) because i havent ID speed yet, but it's not speed ... it's a potion of CON !

Now i know what that LF 8 was.

I sit tight and melee the orc; i have to dip into my stash of CSW and CCW more than once, but finally he runs. I fail my Acid Bolt again.. and then again. Fair enough, 50% fail rate. I resort to MM and finally he is down, one more to go, and i have still plenty of potions.

I take a quick rest, and Grishnak shows up .. of course you do.

I can only TS, but not before i Fire Bolt him - he doesnt resist fire.

My TS takes me next to Wormtongue ... well, at worst he will steal some stuff. I melee him and he takes 1000 gp from me. OH YOU ARE SO DEAD.

I try to rest but Grish hounds me again. I TS, and he finds me immediately .. and so does Wormtongue. I'm in deep trouble.
Ok, time to show what Dunedains are made of. I power through my CCW and melee furiously the orc, Wormtongue being content with making away with 800 more gold.
When the orc is dead, some easterling warriors join the fray, before i have had a chance to rest. One hits me on the head, hard, and i only have a couple potions left .. i cant melee them.

i use my last Hold Person charge from the wand, and i run away. Once i have 6 SP, i TS.

I find myself in the room i started in, and finally recover all my SP. time to locate the mobs and nuke them. Wormtongue is fortunately near by, so he is my first target. I fail a couple spells, revert to using MM, and finally bonk him on the head, and he dies. Ding!, CL17, 98 HP, 26 SP .. i can't wait for some potions of Intellect.
I go through the stuff he drops, mostly items he picked up from the floor .. and find a staff of Healing.

I have no use for it , but i will turn it into some nice blingbling. Fully loaded, i'm at -5 speed, so i recall to see what's in stock at the BM.

fifth recall, DL0:

WOHOO!!!

the Black Market has FIVE!, count'em, five potions of Intellect in stock. Time to sell everything.
First potion, i trade a point of DEX for 3.9 points of INT, my SP jump to 39.
Second potion, i trade a point of WIS for 1.5 points of INT, and my SP skyrockets to 51.
Third potion, i lose a point of STR, which means less carrying ability .. ouch.

well, in for a penny, in for a pound, so i buy a fourth and fifth potion, and drink away a point of CON and one more of DEX. My final stats are INT 18/140, STR 13, CON 14, 94 HP and 77 SP.

ready for some bigger stuff now, but i sure wish i could get a ring or helm of INT, that's some easy boost and i could really use some gear.

time to go back to the dungeon, my brother is still nowhere to be found. I made quite a profit selling all my junk and i still have 7000 gold. I drop home a "waxy mushroom" that sells for 133 gold ... that's Vigor, baby!

DL13:

One stego, three orcs, two hobbits. Not much to kill here, and i now have 2% fail rate on the Fire Bolt and 11% on Acid Bolt. My first find is a lantern of Everburning, which means i no longer have to lug around 10 pounds of oil flasks. I find a nice amulet of infravision +2, but it's cursed ... teleport curse. maybe it means it sells for more money.

The level feeling is 3-1 so there is no reason for me and my 77 SP to hang around here.

i drop on the head of a baby dragon, and he dies, accidentally. I find a cloak of stealth, which should be good. i DM no dangerous mobs, and the level feeling is 2-2. Nick, the God of Luck, really likes his rockfall traps .. i'm stunned but not defeated. I wander around the almost empty dungeon, and spot Brodda, the Easterling, having a nap. I decide to interrupt his dreams with a cloud of stinking gas, and then nuke him with MM and Acid Bolts. For all my efforts, he drops a miserable Short Bow (+2, +4), which pales in comparison to my Long Bow of Power (+4, +20).

Damn.. only junk here. No stairs around, so i teleself, find the nearest one, and go down.

DL15:

I'm down 1 point of Str because of a trap, and the first thing i see is a 20 Lbs maul ... (+0,+0), [cursed].

I move to investigate a ring, when i'm bitten on all sides by invisible creatures.

I quickly duck into a corridor, and Reveal Monsters - a bunch of invisible hounds.
This is a problem, being that i'm a Dunedain and therefore can't innately see invisible ..
But, knowing how hounds work ..

I step just outside of the corridor (after resting) and unleash a barrage of stinking cloud, all targeted on me. The hounds try to get close, but they all die in the stench.

Level feeling 3-4, i'm assaulted by an ochre jelly .. damn. They resist almost everything, so i melee the thing, and i win, but my gear is all covered in slime.

I kill a few harmless mobs, move to investigate a ring, but a baby blue dragon has a better idea, and destroys it by breathing on it. i DM, but the level is empty. time to go.

Sixth recall, DL0:

Durwin "The Shifty" has a stack of potion of Enlightment, and he says he'll let me have them for 2400 gold each. I can afford five, but is it a good investment? They sure are useful for hunting down artifacts ..
He also has a leather cap of seeing, but it's 26.000 gold ..
i decide on 2 !enlight and head back into the dungeon.

i recall right next to Orfax, son of Boldor, and send him packing with two Fire Bolts. he runs, and then for some reason decided to summon me next to him. Cool, i nuke him, light up the room, and nuke his yeek followers.

i detect no items and some wolves up ahead. i nuke the lot and ding! to CL18, 99 HP, and 81 SP. Level feeling is 4-5.
I fight a magic mushroom patch (possibly the most odious low level mob in Angband), a whole bunch of half orcs, two tigers at once, and find a checker room with a potion of sped and a leather armor of Elvenkind (shards).

According to my rod of treasure detection there's nothing else here, so i go down the stairs.
