Best character in awhile. Went to Weathertop (seems this is available a little early?) and got my butt kicked by the Ringwraith there. Ran away with my tail between my legs to Mirkwood, and currently am doing the dungeon there. This is definitely a very cool variant. Hopefully Andrew will find a way to still enhance and fix things while he's away. Kudos, Andrew!

Okay... still alive, but extremely lost. I was basically doing one wilderness area at a time, but it happened that I killed Smaug outside the Lonely Mountain, did a number of levels in the Lonely Mountain dungeon, then decided to go back to town to get rid of some stuff. For whatever reason I had trouble finding the right path back to the Lonely Mountain, and ended up in some completely new places. Well, turns out these new places won't let me go back. And not only that, I can't find a town anywhere, so I'm dangerously low on spellbooks (1 copy of a number of basic ones). I'm currently in the Moria dungeon (at least I think I am). I found Cadarhas (sp) but couldn't kill him, never tried the dungeon there, couldn't get back. I don't like leaving things unfinished so that aspect of things is a little annoying, but it's neat to see just how much there is to explore in the game. Put a rune on my shield recently (door) which seems to have imbued it with random teleport (argh). I'm hoping a new rune will remove the power but I might be screwed out of it. Anyway, figured I'd update the dump before frustration and confusion leads to something careless. :)

Been playing some more... still in either Moria or Isengard (forgot which, not the one with The Watcher so maybe it's Isengard). Beating up on big dragons and some demons, almost level 36. Got a few new artifacts to play with.

Well, beat the demon at the bottom of Moria, which was surprising given my max hits at the time were a bit under 300. But it was fun. Finally found a town, without, of course, any regular spellbooks in it. Beat up a named orc in some forest, and found my way back to Isengard, which is the tower in which I'm exploring now. So far things are much easier than they were in Moria, but I've no idea how high this thing goes. Anyway, I've got to get up and work in about six hours, so that's it for tonight. Fun stuff.

Whew. Played a lot tonight. Actually I've got to get up in five hours... nothing like a nice Angband-caused sleep deprived week. :) But anyway, made it to 42nd, ran away from Sauroman, and killed Wormtongue instead (he's *real nasty* in this variant). Now I'm going back and forth between a new town and a one level dungeon with a unique or two I can't beat. They're the glorious kind that self-heals and teleports away. My mana runs out way too quickly. I've been tearing my hair out looking for *identifies* but forutnately this town carries them occasionally. I must say, caring one's entire home with you all the time is just crazy. Portable hole, any one? Also had some runes completely erase one of my artifact's powers (obviously a bug). No more messing around with runes and my equipment. Anyway, having a lot of fun, towns are cool because higher level guys and treasure gets generated there (and within the shop). Managed to find the first level spellbooks again from monster drops and fireproofed them. Too bad you can't add waterproof and fireproof to the same book. Praying for some more powerful spells, the ones I have don't really pack much punch. Well, hopefully something will turn up. Anyway, that's it for the saga for now. Stay tuned. :)

Well, first chance to really play any this weekend... put about two and a half hours in tonight. Finally managed to beat Al-Ph the Golden, who kept teleporting around and healing last time. Another guy, D-something the Steward of (sorry!) has proven unbeatable thus far, between his major melee damage, self-healing (argh!), super hit points and teleporting. So I moved instead to the Halls of the Dead or some such other location, and am currently happily diving and gaining levels (about 650' right now, equivalent to somewhere in the late 2000's or early 3000's). Can't find a good spellbook with some high damage spells, and I could really use that to give that other unique another go. Sure wish I could go back to Isengard and some earlier locations to give a few previously difficult uniques another go. I also get extremely excited every time I find an *identify*... lack of item knowlege has made this variant considerably harder than it needs to be. Cool challenge though. Well, until next time.

While beating on things on the Paths of the Dead area, I found two really useful spellbooks. Necromancy lets me beat on undead with a line of sight, 17 point cost, 150 or so damage attack spell. It means against all the liches in there I can hang pretty well. Also JUST found the Lore book, which has, can you guess... *identify* as a level 35 or so spell. Nice to chance upon that around clevel 47 or so. :( Anyway, I'm gloriously happy to find it, and since I've got it the game has gone from extremely, EXTREMELY difficult and somewhat frustrating to fun again. No more toting around tons of stuff I'm unsure about, or leaving a million wands and other items un-ID'd on the floor. Or amensia screwing me completely. Yes, I'm feeling rather invincible at the moment, probably a bad thing. Also can cast invincibility, by the way, which I've only used to prevent genocide from killing me when I kill the hordes of annoying Ogres and other weaker monsters that sometimes clutter a level. Of course beating the main unique in the Paths of the Dead, and subsequently going down the stairs, prevented me from returning to the previous town dungeon and beating the unique who had kept pestering me like crazy since my last update. I think I could handle him now, since I've found some other useful gear, includign speed (up to +30 with haste, or 39 or so if I dropped one of my extra rings). Anyway, he's unreachable now that I chose that new path. Currently going up some tower dungeon. The game is fun and it took all my willpower to close down for the night (12:54, get up to work at 5:55). ...sigh. Hopefully this character will win soon and I can sleep again. :) Couldn't play much this weekend though.

Well, made 50th today, and was hoping to win, but I'm at a loss. Can't seem to find where to go next. Went to the bottom (or was it top?) of a couple dungeons, but didn't find a guardian or transition. Killed Sauron but his staircase didn't take me to Morgoth, but somewhere else. The dungeon in that wilderness section led to nothing. Perhaps I'm just rushing... I'll check again tomorrow. But I'm thinking that barring something stupid, or a show-stopping bug, this character should be a winner.

Congratulations so far. It's been great reading your comments and detailled e-mails. Based on what you've said, I'll definitely be making *identify* more common, as with the additional random artifacts it is definitely required. Unfortunately, I haven't been around to iron out the bugs (Holidaying in Europe), but I promise I'll make an effort to get everything resolved for you. And Takashi Mogami seems to have picked up on some of the bugs you have commented on and provided fixes, so a big thanks to him too.

Well, a few end-game bugs delayed what felt to be inevitable, but thanks to some e-mail suggestions from Andrew I was finally able to stage a show-down with Morgoth in Angband, and despite him blasting me with a billion mana storms, he went down. The battle took more healing than I usually need for the end fight (in other variants), but fortunately I'd built up a fairly substantial supply. I used mana storm and a wand of annihilation against him (the wand exploded in the battle). He didn't summon anyone or do anything terribly interesting, besides mana storm me like crazy. And mana bolt, which is also extremely nasty.

Nice to chalk up a new win. :)

P.S. A bug in the game prevented the game from
giving me "winner" status after beating him, but hopefully this site maintainer will fix that.
