  9,933    450 ft   Made The Set of Gloves of Gharik <+4>  0.5 lb
  9,934    450 ft   I Know they aren't as good as Celebrimdor's...
  9,934    450 ft   ...but they're all mine.
  9,934    450 ft   (Why did they get recorded twice in ESC-g ?)
  9,947    550 ft   (Second shaft.)
 10,041    550 ft   Second and third giant, slain...
 10,041    550 ft   ...but I am beginning to think I've delved too deep.
 10,179    550 ft   I should have forged a living composition of Mastery.
 10,179    550 ft   For how can one be a good smith without being master of
 10,179    550 ft   one's forge?
 10,232    550 ft   (2600xp on acc, !const, !quick, !heal, and I have
 10,232    550 ft   survived my first werewolf couple.)
 10,794    550 ft   I wonder if I'll ever have enough breath to Sing my best 
 10,794    550 ft   work from start to finish.

 11,496    550 ft   Encountered Gilim, the Giant of Eruman
 11,497    550 ft   Encountered Orcobal, Champion of the Orcs
 11,499    550 ft   Um, I think I have come down with a case of the hubris.
 11,546    550 ft   Seems my runes of warding are as strong as my crafts.
 11,546    550 ft   Gilim, Orcobal, and the Black cannot pass them.
 11,599    550 ft   Still trapped, though...at least until the Nethers come. 
 11,749    550 ft   So it looks like I can kill some of the things some of
 11,749    550 ft   the time, but then must rest my throat much longer.
 11,816    550 ft   Slew Gilim, the Giant of Eruman
 11,949    550 ft   Once the Nethers come to clear, all ways are out ways.
 11,949    550 ft   (Somehow my fried brain thinks the fact I have 777xp was 
 11,949    550 ft   the most important point of that encounter.)
 12,460    550 ft   Slew Ulfang the Black
 12,461    550 ft   Ulfang was an obsessive collector of shoes?
 12,588    550 ft   Slew Orcobal, Champion of the Orcs
 12,673    550 ft   Why it seems this agile cat is welded to the ground...
 12,741    550 ft   (I think I've decided to start going for perception.)
 13,595    650 ft   (Third shaft.)
 13,959    650 ft   Trolls are also, naturally, rooted to the ground.
 14,034    650 ft   Great serpents of hue...doors are my only recourse.
 14,343    650 ft   Entered the forge 'Orodruth'
 14,344    650 ft   Ye gods...I think I'm only going to get one shot--
 14,344    650 ft   --so I better clear the level and make it good.
 14,357    650 ft   (Luckily I have absurd perception and Freedom for this.) 
 14,391    650 ft   My new staff revealed a hidden cache, also Delthaur.
 14,391    650 ft   Delthaur!? He's more formidible than the stories say.
 14,886    650 ft   Another use a Foes, just to make sure...
 14,887    650 ft   Ah, yes, much better; I could even use a giant now...
 15,461    650 ft   The hidden cache held a great treasure; another forge.
 15,555    650 ft   (And upon the corpse of this fire-drake...)
 15,555    650 ft   (Grace)
 15,555    650 ft   I can feel it's loss...

 17,040    650 ft   (And against a hallway of Grotesque...)
 17,040    650 ft   (Grace)
 17,040    650 ft   I can glimpse the souls of those whose eyes I lock.
 17,079    650 ft   Found The Longsword 'Orcrist'

 18,813    650 ft   (Vce  128:443)
 18,813    650 ft   Judging by my belly, that took a /long/ time.
 18,922    650 ft   *Gharik comes upon a room of mere orcs.*
 18,922    650 ft   Hold a moment, please.
 18,922    650 ft   *The orcs hold.*
 19,330    750 ft   It seems my quick boots are quick obsolete.
 19,330    750 ft   They served me well.
 19,365    750 ft   Encountered Tevildo, Prince of Cats

 21,379    750 ft   Made The Cloak 'Notes' [+1] <+2>  2.0 lb
 21,381    750 ft   (Speaking of, I forgot to note the last >; shafty.)
 21,381    750 ft   (Counting them up, I've had a high rate of forges/floors 
 21,381    750 ft   , although the constant diving/danger was hard on the
 21,381    750 ft   nerves.)
 21,381    750 ft   (Anyway, I wonder if horn-cost is scaled-percentage...)
 21,510    750 ft   Made a Brazen Horn of Blasting  1.0 lb
 21,576    750 ft   I am in awe of my own...that great chasm...jus gone...

 21,949    800 ft   still die easily to a mistype; Mastery is my only good
 21,949    800 ft   defense; low ev, low armour, no resistances.)

 22,302    800 ft   Found The Robe of Aredhel
 22,304    800 ft   Cold drake of Angband, I know it may be hard, but Bow.

 22,683    900 ft   I have two more tools to make before reaching bottom.

 25,758    900 ft   Heh; staves say not one, not two, but four of Morgoth's

 25,758    900 ft   /two/ Great Treasures are built here.

 28,148    950 ft   This last floor holds Great Treasures! Bless the staves! 
 28,148    950 ft   (I have no idea what to do with them.)
 28,148    950 ft   I must use this boon carefully, as I Know Morgoth may
 28,148    950 ft   still simply be too durable.
 28,148    950 ft   (I'm going to go sleep.)
 28,148    950 ft   (Although it magically occurs to me I haven't given due
 28,148    950 ft   respect for the uniques.)

 33,504    950 ft   Well, I guess this is it.
 33,504    950 ft   I feel like I should make an Ode, but I'm better at

 34,909  1,000 ft   Cut a Silmaril from Morgoth's crown
 34,910  1,000 ft   Spirit of Morgoth, please be quiet.

 34,910  1,000 ft   Crown isn't any less an awful piece of junk.
 34,910  1,000 ft   Guess we'll cart it off and melt it down on clean-up.
 34,910  1,000 ft   Also, I hope Arda isn't mad at me now; I was just trying 
 34,910  1,000 ft   my best!

 37,051    950 ft   Despite my skill, I feel unread to house the Sils.
 37,051    950 ft   (There's an enchanted forge here, and there will
 37,051    950 ft   probably be more to come, so I'm finishing my kit.)

 45,389    700 ft   I guess I'll just have to get my forges back home.
 46,003    650 ft   Ah, another forge.
 46,003    650 ft   What do I do with it?
 47,096    650 ft   Made The Robe of Longevity <+4>  3.0 lb
 48,078    550 ft   Nothing of note this level.
 48,081    450 ft   And nothing much of note this level either.
 49,823    200 ft   Seems I'm almost up, and only a 2-use seen.
 50,224    150 ft   Ah, Delmereth is on this level.
 50,431    150 ft   Encountered The Deathblade 'Delmereth'
 50,459    150 ft   Subdued The Deathblade 'Delmereth'
 50,459    150 ft   Found The Deathblade 'Delmereth'
 51,023     50 ft   Ran out of Treasures, so I must check personally.
 51,263     Gates   Entered The Gates of Angband
 51,263     Gates   Well, here I am; the gates.
 52,715     Gates   Encountered Carcharoth, the Jaws of Thirst
 52,766     Gates   Slew Carcharoth, the Jaws of Thirst
 53,078     Gates   (Spending 11kxp on smithing to finish the point.)
 53,383     Gates   Okay, so I have food, restoratives, my tools, my gift... 
 53,383     Gates   ...I guess I should get on the road then.

 53,385     Gates   You escaped the Iron Hells on 05 March 2014.
 53,385     Gates   You brought back all three Silmarils from Morgoth's 
                    crown! 

 53,385     Gates   Now, I want to get a small army of dwarves and elves
 53,385     Gates   back to Angband to do cleanup with me.
 53,385     Gates   Hopefully by the time I get it together, word will have
 53,385     Gates   traveled about Morgoth and his greatest servants.
 53,385     Gates   Which should mean many rauko could be convinced to stop
 53,385     Gates   being irresponsible and start being constructive.
 53,385     Gates   Any rauko would be valuable, but I'm hoping to set up a
 53,385     Gates   forge complex filled with skilled ururauko acting as
 53,385     Gates   inexhaustable and precise smelters.
 53,385     Gates   I may even be able to pay them; I know there are metals
 53,385     Gates   more heat resistant than any now forged, and they could
 53,385     Gates   be enchanted into shapes useful to those creatures...
 53,385     Gates   *Gharik takes out a Sil as he continues walking.*
 53,385     Gates   Not so sure what to do with these anymore, though.
 53,385     Gates   I had many plans about making a fine crown for them, but 
 53,385     Gates   now that I know their basic powers, know their curse,
 53,385     Gates   and know the potential of a good Forge...I think the
 53,385     Gates   housing should be something better than the Jewels, in
 53,385     Gates   its' own way. Craft that may focus and enhance their
 53,385     Gates   their power instead of merely holding it--
 53,385     Gates   Craft that can encourage wise use instead of just being
 53,385     Gates   used-- And Craft that may restrict the curse, if it
 53,385     Gates   cannot be washed away or sanctified...or maybe undone by 
 53,385     Gates   separating the Sils? I was only hit upon joining them
 53,385     Gates   in my possession...I'll need to find a better historian. 
 53,385     Gates   *Gharik resecures the Sil, and blinks off bright-eyes.*
 53,385     Gates   "One needs no hoard if the world is full of treasure."

Wait...it looks like...I found all the artifacts generated! There weren't any on the early floors I skipped! Now I can say this game couldn't have gone bett-- oh, no; I could have remembered (learned?) that 20 is stat maximum and spent more smithing time/uses on Song. Or maybe I could have gotten away without barely any perception at all?

Oh right, I also totally forgot to laugh over the corpse of many (more) uniques, but... was there really any question at that point of what was going to happen?

Great character, and thanks for the notes.

I would like to see what would happen with a masterpiece sword or something. You could probably make it sharp, triple branded, extra dice, extra attack, extra evasion and some other things.

Well, I certainly could have done something like that, and it would have been a strategically sound choice so far as normal play is concerned, but if I had lost my Smithing somehow or made a thing only really good for destruction, I would have lost the game for me. Roleplaying coloured with sisu and all that.

His masterpiece will be something taking him many years to conceive, more to understand, and many more to realize. I'm not going to make guesses as to what shape it would take (least until I've figured out more of his life), but I'm sure Hofstadter would approve.

What I don't understand is how you survive early in the game. You had 4 / 4 skill in melee evasion at 400 if I understand correctly, +2 each by ring, 1 strength and 1 dexterity - is that sufficient?

Well, usually, it isn't. The Gharik line goes back at least a couple hundred, and I was trying desperately to figure out any spare advantage I could get during that time, because there were several points where it felt like I was just punishing myself.
I should have included my current kit in my notes too, but here's some of what I remember; three spears of Gondolin (for throwing at/under enemies and dropping), a bow of gondolin (or was it a longbow? I think first one then the other), a light +1 longsword, a very light battleaxe, then that shield and decent basic armour. I remember having [+6, 7-13] or so around that point (take a look at the next 400xp spent; I'd had 4/3 melee/EV), but I also remember it varying a lot as I switched out to different weapons/armours based on what I was fighting at the time (like the Crown was part of my evasion set of armour).
I memorized escape routes, doors, corner halls and possible sources of enemies; I payed attention every time a seen door opened/broke (I closed doors behind me much of the time, even going back to close some of them); if there was a dark place I shot first; I took on light-vulnerable enemies with two lit weapons under us, one wielded, after Radiance (I remember keeping an orc of some kind alive to take on shadow things); I mercilessly abused the archer AI to make them like experience popcorn; I abused melee AI versus darkness to make them dance around in/in-front-of hallways while I shot/threw-at them; I did things I'm not even sure how to write down here to control turns and monster movement; and perhaps most importantly, I took breaks-- whenever it felt like I needed inspiration for the current problem, or felt doomed, or felt like I would start making mistakes, I left for exercise, for food, for water, or just for something different for a while.

Then, when all else was probably going to fail, I buffed up as best I could and hoped.

Writing all this out somehow felt more exhausting than doing it.

Taking breaks :)

Yes, many a char would have survived with an alert operator.

Wow, what a story! And reaching the stat cap is always impressive.
