I can't imagine this character lasting long, since I'm playing pretty sloppily. Still.

I'm posting because both of Shameful Death's predecessors both died (appropriately enough) to Freesia without escapes while descending to Camelot 5 for the Wargs Quest (couldn't afford escape scroll along with Word of Recall), but this iteration finally killed her. Good riddance.

Dead. Didn't get a death dump. Died in the wilderness just barely outside of Morivanat while trying to earn 6 gold for a scroll of teleportation.

Shameful Death attempts it again. I'm still planning to finish up my surviving entry into the comp before it ends, but indulging in the distraction of PosChengband for a bit.

Nope, dead to a nasty !Recall landing spot on the 2nd floor of the Labyrinth. Ugh. A group of Uruks with good line of sight took me down pretty quickly.

Hmm, maybe in retrostpect I should have just walked from Morivant back to the Labyrinth to ensure myself an escape stair, especially given that I was only on the second level of it. I'm still not really as smart as I should be in general about stair retreats in PosChengband, since in V I make a point of not going up my down stairs, even when I don't use disconnected stairs.

I haven't seen any other red mages from PosChengband on the ladder to maybe snipe some tips from, but I'm guessing I basically just need to play like a low stealth utility rogue with my early detection, phase, and clw spells. I doubt I'll ever get serious damage from magic, given how my 'P'erusal of the first Armageddon Book showed me high minimum levels (though I did get Lightning Bolt before my death this time). Thus, I'm not sure how much I can afford/have to prioritize Int over damage or con stats. Of course, even if Int isn't my damage, I don't really want high fail chances on my escapes, be they spell or device.

Is my guess correct that Red Mage tends to use books for utility and rely on slightly under-scaling combat (the whole unstealthy utility rogue thing)? What books sholud be (!!!) finds for me levels ~15-25? I need to check when I can start using the 2nd and further Arcane spellbooks too...haven't 'P'erused those so I haven't known if I'd been high enough level to cast them, and thus should have bought from shop if available.

I might keep playing Shameful Death runs for a bit, we'll see. Still need to finish my comp 156 run and hopefully slay M. Got ~1.5 days on that.

Sad, only 11 on the ladder and I have the top 4! I think their melee is strong and they get every single useful end game utility spell you could want (Healing, Destruction, Haste, Detection, etc). They'll suffer from finishing woes that an 5 attack base melee build would, but I think there is enough stuff about these days that you could manage. Also, they are good with devices.

I would start with a melee build (17 Str/Dex 15? Int) and use early spells for utility (detect monsters) but not escapes. Throw your early stat boosts into fighting stats until you can survive stat gain and then park it until Int and Con catch up. Also, skeleton's are probably not the strongest choice and they have a huge end game liability you may not have noticed/realized yet. With Satisfy Hunger, perhaps a Balrog? Or if you like stealth, then High Elf or Vampire works. Or demigod, but they work with just about any class :)

Is the lategame danger to skeletons from holy smiting spells? I didn't think they were vulnerable to light. I figured skeleton would have a relatively decent XP % combined with a couple of key resists to convert into a later game.

I'd like to know more about your advice on (when possible) not using mana on escape spells, since I'm used to a Vanilla playstyle for mages/rogues that spends mana primarily on escapes/movement. They can afford to there, because detect monsters is super cheap. At least, they can afford to until Haste, Teleport Other, and (to a lesser extent) Identify gobble up mana points.

Yeah I also looked for red mages on the ladder already, but haven't yet read the dumps, since they looked to be old enough that I wouldn't know which information was still accurate. I'll give them a quick review though.
