DL17:

a magic mushroom, an ochre jelly, and three trolls. Which turn out to be five trolls, and a whole bunch of orcs. But i'm not scared. I approach the trolls, without lighting up the room, and find a ring <+4> {??}.. ermagherd, yass.
My first ring of Escaping.

I stone to mud my way to the trolls, nuke them one by one while they are sleeping with Acid Bolt, and they repay me with enough XP to level up.

Ding!, CL19, 107 HP and 86 SP.

I continue to explore to get the level feeling, and i get a 4-4 just as i'm about to kill some healers for a spear of *Slay Giant*, +2 STR to carry more goodies.

I nuke a snake and go down the stairs.

level feeling 4-2, and i lose a point of STR to a trap, with 1400 Xp to go. A lurker tries to eat me, but i detect a fault in his strategy (i.e. remain still like an idiot) and use the ancient technique of "step back and nuke" and make away with his XP. A group of Wargs generously offers their lives for my XP and i graciously accept.
I fail a ridiculous number of castings of Acid Bolt to kill some Light Hounds, and need to recover several times in a corridor, because this animal will hurt you but will not chase you. I wonder how they evolved this way.

I get ready to recall, and drop a book of beginners magic to grab a rod, and decide to test-cast a scroll; yes, you guessed right, it's a scroll of teleport level. i sink down to ..

i have no Beginner's book so i want to leave this place asap.

i have appeared in a single square, with walls all around. i cannot move, so i cannot identify doors. i decide to TS. No spell of light, either.

The level feeling turn out to be 4-1, so without hesitation, i cast recall.

Seventh recall, DL0:

the BM has a lantern of true sight, but it's 19.000 gold ... and not much else to spend on.
i decide to take a brief pause for some food, and go home to drop some more mushrooms.

DL19:

one of those new "cave" levels. i recall to a huge room with uruks in it, i didnt realize the room was so big so by casting Light i wake them all up. I have to hide in a corner and pick them off one by one. Some trolls and an orc captain follow. I level to CL20, ding ding!, 118 HP and 90 SP.

These cave levels are really dangerous, and this one has level feeling 6-1, so i'm keen to get out fast. A quick DM and yes, it's full of mobs everywhere. I dont want to get sandwiched but i do want the XP.

I ID a potion, it's restore mana. shame. Some more orcs, black orcs, and trolls die. My ring of escaping is proving too strong for them. I finish a den of ogres and level up again .. ding!

CL21, 124 HP, 95 SP. I find a room full of orcs and, more important, rubble. Rubble is basically a small chest, so i spend some time clearing it all, but alas, no luck - nothing drops. I find an amulet of searching <+6>, for when you *really* need to find, but it's not enough to hold my attention so i head for the stairs.

DL20:

this is where it gets interesting. In most Randart games, it's where you start finding artifacts.
I carry one !Enlight, the second one is at home, so that once quaffed i get a free slot.

Hmm, level feeling 4-1 ... a ranger, a paladin, an easterling champion .. nothing that poses any challenge. I think i spot a 3-headed hydra ...
Nope, it's 2-heads. Oh well. I nuke her and a bunch of ogres and make my way to some conveniently-located stairs.

DL21: is a level feeling 4-1, so i kill the ogres i have in the room, ding! to CL22, 132 HP, 99 SP, and recall.

eight recall, DL0:

looks like one of the wands i just picked up is a wand of TO, as it sells for 3299 gold. good. i can now do minor vaults.

i sell everything else, including my longbow of power and arrows, and reach 21.000 gold. The BM is selling one potion of CON (along with 5 potions of WIS) for 24.000, which i might be able to make in one trip.
I also drop at home my now rather heavy stash of CCW, keeping 4 CCW, 17 CSW and 15 CLW on me.

i'm on a mission to get those 3000 gold, so i rush down to the dungeon.

empty room, rod of light. next room, a bunch of uruks. the most unexciting dungeon level ever, i can't even find anything that would motivate a 4. a Tengu, a bunch of bears, a baby dragon. i take the stairs. After all, i'm just here to get some gold. And to find my brother, of course.

DL23:

two soldiers, a druid .. the level feeling comes as 7-4. i'm rushing to find enough gold for that potion of CON, despite the fact that it might well not give me any HP boost. I see a ogre shaman on DM and i go to kill it. I run into a room with two illusionists, who make me blind. damn.

I pull back, unleash a halistorm of acid bolts, and lay waste to the living, but i take a bite from a vampire that drains me of some XP. Without Restore Life, i am forced to kill everything and take the XP loss. Fortunately i find a haul of magical polearms, and i head back to town.
