A taste of power, then bitter death

So I've finally registered because last night I lost the greatest Angband character I'd ever ran. I think the maintainer would like to know that the changes between 3.0.9b and 3.1 have really helped me get my act together between dlvs 1-20.

A little background: I've been playing 3.0.9b for about a year and only learned 3.1beta was out last Sunday. Call me late. But throughout my 9b career, I never made it far past dlv 20, and that was with a Dunadun Ranger. Last night, I lost my best character, a Half-Troll Warrior to a Greater Vault at dlv 40 to Smaug the Golden. I was trying so hard to grab a piece of Red Dragon Scale Mail, an Ethereal Dragon I teleported from earlier returned and confused me...at least I think that's what happened. Either way, I lost 500 or so HP in a fell swoop.

But this is great progress. With only my first character in this build, the game was so much less tedious. I had terrible luck in 9b, and in 3.1, everything needed for an early dive is there, and the leveling system seems much more supportive. I have plenty of other Roguelike experience: winner of ADoM, dabbler in NetHack and could comfortably navigate the Fortress Angband in ToME. And I know how to absolutely break Steamband.

Though...now I wonder if I should have posted this in the After Adventure Reports.

My lost HT is as follows...ARMOG THE HALF-TROLL
