My first win in any variant. More commentary if the mortem posts successfully.

Thanks to pav for enabling the MAngband ladder.

Been playing Moria and various Angband variants, especially MAngband, for something like 12-15 years now. This is my first victory of Morgoth, made possible by the multiplayer economy of MAngband, the assistance of other players(particularly Haradaur) on earlier deaths, and some excellent luck with Artifacts, which can only be generated in MAngband if no one else is currently holding them.

My strategy with this character was to slowly and safely build up power and eliminate obstacles to fighting Morgoth. For a long time I scummed 7 looking for heals and destros, and also purchased a large amount from other players, to handle progressively more powerful uniques. Once I had killed all my Uniques(barring Morgoth), I dived past 5000 feet for the first time. This is an option at any phase of the game, and many players dive the bottom long before they've killed all their uniques, but I wanted to avoid risking Morgoth's sudden arrival through the walls while handling other big uniques.

On my way down, I discovered the One in a vault, which gave me all immunities and completely protected my consumables, a fact which made the rest of the game much easier for me. I was able to carry banish staves, which are rather rare in MAng, and destroy staves, and I optimized my gear for intelligence, including the Istaris in the mortem, the cap of Celebrimbor which I wore until the final fight, and +2 Magi shadow cloak which I switched out for the LR for more AC for the Morgoth battle. I played the bottom at /160 int on a HT Warrior, which allowed me to use my staves with minimal failure rates. I would recall to 6250, enlighten the level, destroy Morgoth if he arrived, and banish anything I didn't want to fight. I looted all the vaults on the level, then staired down until I'd cleared 6350 or filled my inventory.

This playstyle netted me my +4 trickery(speed, infravision, and a few other minor skills, maybe searching? with nexus and poison resist), my epic Orcish Preservation shield(with nether resist, quite possibly the best example of its kind ever generated), and eventually Deathwreaker.

Shortly after finding Deathwreaker, I walked over a summon trap and was instagibbed by time hounds, losing my only round of reaction time to the autoretaliator.

Luckily, Harad logged in to save me, resurrecting my ghost and allowing me to recover all of my gear. Death in MAngband will resurrect some of your unique kills, so I had to clear out my page 5 again, and Gothmog dropped Gorlim for me.

With that, I decided it was time to make my attempt. I switched over my gear, grabbed my buffs and all my *heals and lifes, and dived with 80 recharge scrolls and a summoning staff. On 6300, I found a lesser vault bank, #53 in the MAngband vault file, and destro'd myself a nice little arena with my space surrounded on 5 sides by permawall, with one open space north of me for Morgoth, surrounded by normal and permawalls.

I began summoning, and used nearly all of my recharges before Morgoth finally deigned to answer my summons.

From there, it was a simple matter of letting the autoretaliator whale on him with Deathwreaker, and healing up whenever he manastormed or otherwise dropped me below 60% HP. His earthquakes cracked the walls next to him late in the fight, but his summons weren't particularly dangerous and I finished him with minimal trouble.

MAngband's current instance forces autoretirement, and I decided to retire on my own terms, rather then risking an autoretire or a death later on.
