Sorry for noob question, but where do I go to get to Amon Rudh? It seems like that's where all the cool kids go first.

I do enjoy exploring the wilderness, though. Reminds me of Arrowbridge (the BBS game).

The map (via the 'M' command - it's the second screen that appears) is scrollable - use the arrow keys to navigate, but to navigate this, you need to pick available directions (up, left, etc) according to the highlighted grid.

From Gladden Fields town, Amon Rudh is 11 screens west then one screen north* (you've gone some of the way to get to Hithaerglir 2. It gets more dangerous in the wilderness as you travel that way, so be careful...

*NB This applies in 1.3.0 (the version you're playing) - navigation is significantly different in earlier versions...

Basically, west.

For more info, there's a map in the help - ?, 5, 5

Best of all, if you go to the overhead map 'M', and hit a key, you'll get a diagram of the surrounding region. That can be scrolled with the arrow keys, and the dungeons are marked in red.

Gotcha -- the dungeons are just labeled 'Dungeon' in the 'M' map, but the map in the help cleared it up.

Just an FYI, in the Cocoa port at least, the 'M' map navigation is a bit wonky. For example, once I start navigating down that looooong valley chain from Mountain L36, I can't navigate back until I follow it all the way down, and it dumps me out at the forest just right of where I entered. Is this supposed to signify a path of no return? :)

Without too many spoilers, that valley path map isn't a bug - it's an accurate gameplay description (including the danger ratings)...

OK, we're trying this again. A sick underworld level just west of Khazad Dum netted me the Lamp of Gwindor (reminds me of that little red bearded guy in the Masters of the Universe movie). The Complainer dropped some nice daggers, two of which I sold, and one of which I'm stabbing things with :)

Maybe it post dates once you id? I recall something weird about notes and artifacts from eons ago.

Yeah, I've been playing FA a little this week and also noticed the neutral guys getting in my way a lot more often than I ever remember. There was one instance I was in this mountain passage and I was stuck between a 'helpful' ranger and a mold. He kept insisting that I snuggy the mold.

So far so good! The daggers I have in my quiver are slightly better for melee than my rapier, but the regen on the rapier is nice (and I'm guessing the +2 int helps me somehow).

I apparently got my WIS drained somewhere, and this isn't like Vanilla where stats get restored on levelup, so I'm going to have to order a pot of restore wisdom (can I do that?)

Those daggers should be good for throwing. And you should be able to get Restore WIS at the alchemist.

If you are in your hometown, WOR will prompt for what recall point you want to go to. If you are anywhere else, WOR will attempt to recall you to home, and ask if you would like to make your current spot one of the 3? 4? recall points. I think there are 4 recall points... stupid memory. WOR will not let you zip between any and all WOR points... you gotta visit home.

On 4.11.2012 16:25 HallucinationMushroom wrote:
I think if you pick nowhere, you can recall without setting a point... there is an option for cancel too, I think, which removes WOR. As you play more you get a feel for where you want those points. I like to shop till I drop so I usually have 3 town merchant WOR points by the end and just 1 for Angband, but as your adventuring you might want to keep a few in choice wilderness spots, or have a couple in different dungeons.

lol thanks for the help. I think I might just savescum a guy and experiment with recall until I have it figured out. I'm tired of spending 300g to find out that I ended up somewhere I didn't want to be because I'm a knob :D

I should start taking these screenshots in bear mode, since I'm never NOT a bear :)

lol, I guess Zangband and Sangband are the biggies that I haven't played more than 5 minutes. Might I ask what you ascended at Nethack? I started playing Nethack about 4 years ago so to me it's the new thing, while I seem to recall you saying that Nethack was your old standby. I got the token Dwarven Valkyrie and a couple of samurai.

My first ever character ascended, it was a Human Samurai. Then I did a Valk, and then a Tourist. That's around the time I quit :)

The important thing is that you can move your home by pressing some button in where ever you want your new hometown to be. In the vikeys command set it's $. So if you want Belegost to be your base, move your home there.

OK I'll try to search out that keycombo. If I have to, I'll just switch to vikeys, use '$', and then switch back :)

Thanks clouded!

Lotsa fun so far. Hounds are still a terrible idea, but I'm dealing with it :)

I had a great moment where I was hacking at a Giant Fire Tick whilst besieged by hill orcs, and my weapon wasn't exactly helping me against it. After a couple of rounds, I had a eureka! moment when I remembered I had that ring of utility that shoots cold balls.

That tick got a face full of my cold balls, let me tell you. His buddies didn't like it much, either :)

Hounds are seriously the shittiest thing ever lol

#1 reason that makes me quit a variant :/

Chugging along in Amon Rudh and things are going well so far. Most dangerous encounter so far (besides fucking hounds) was a gelatinous cube -- holy hell that thing was tough.

I keep getting this urge to go out and explore the wilderness, though. Maybe it's all this winter that is happening here IRL :)

Given your view on hounds, I'd stay away from T-I-G... seems to be the dog catcher's dumping ground.
