Deepest level is 7, I think - will have to walk down there again, though, because I could only afford 1 scroll of recall. Nice bow from Farmer Maggot.

Remembering how to play with selling - my life just got a whole lot easier because I found a stack of shots of Wounding to sell. Reached DL10, CL11, only uniques killed are farmer Maggot and his dogs. Archery is really effective though, so as long as I have arrows I'm OK.

A bit more progress, but even if I don't die I don't think I'll be very deep before the comp ends.

Killed Bullroarer for a weapon upgrade, and could just afford a -TO in the black market. DL17, CL17, still no FA or SI, but archery is still very effective.

Killed Wormtongue and all he dropped was a lousy sabre of slay evil. Now at DL19, and starting to really worry about FA.

Tough going. Found my first trolls, but it turns out even *slay* doesn't help much when you have 1 pitiful blow. Also I hate ochre jellies. DL21, CL18 now, still no FA, but I have at least found my first enchanted arrows, so may be able to kill some better stuff.

On 17.3.2020 12:50 Nick wrote:
DL22, CL21, still no FA, but have realised that the important things to do are get stuff to sell and kill lots of weak monsters (so as to get stuff to sell). I have just bought some nice arrows of wounding, that might help.

Now at DL26, CL22, still no sign of FA or SI, and am starting to be life-drained by ghosts. No significant gear improvement (aside from the Phial from Ulfast), so just waiting and hoping to get a lucky drop from some weakling. Angamaite, Sanghayando and Mim's sons are getting teleported away.

DL28, CL24 and I finally have free action! Plan is to head down to the 30s now and hope to find some stat potions, we'll have to see how much lack of SI is a problem. Also have to decide between CON+2 (12HP) and RCold - probably will go with RCold, actually. Still no RElec.

On 21.3.2020 13:08 Nick wrote:
DL30, CL25, found Nimthanc on the floor a few levels ago, and then found a !STR so I actually get 2 blows with it. Still slow progress and mainly killing hounds, but it is improving gradually. I'd forgotten how irritating mind-blanking is.

On 22.3.2020 08:16 Nick wrote:
CL26, DL32. Decided that getting 4 blows with Nimthanc is worth going without 40-odd HP and RFire, so wearing STR and DEX rings instead of CON and RFire. Have also been lucky with test-quaffing potions off the floor - INT, WIS and restore CON. Gear is still pretty ordinary, though.

Do you have auto-scum turned on? I keep thinking about trying it, but so far have been too worried about getting killed by an OOD monster.

@bron - I never used it, but clouded did & got Kavlax-ed

No, I don't have it on now - perhaps I did for a bit earlier? I forget.

CL27, DL35, aggressive strategy is working OK so far. Slight gear improvement (RElec), killed Uldor, no SI still and got really hammered by what I guess was a ghost; I'm a bit worried that I'll be running into dreads soon.I probably should hang out at this depth a bit for stat potions, but probably won't.

On 24.3.2020 12:57 Nick wrote:
DL37, CL27, not much change. Cleared a troll pit for a single !WIS, and killed Shagrat for a slightly enchanted crossbow. Still no SI or RFire.

On 25.3.2020 13:15 Nick wrote:
CL28, DL39. Nicki's first vault, a small X, netted her Belangil and a crown of Might +2, which is a big improvement - SI at last! Still risking no RFire, and starting to be worried about RPois and RConf. Also starting to see ancient dragons, so continuing cautiously.

On 26.3.2020 11:42 Nick wrote:
CL30, DL45. After acquiring a much better bow, a pack of mumaks and then a pack of Vrocks got Nicki to CL30 (and most of the way to 31), than offed Sanghayando who dropped Thalkettoth and the (sadly better) armor of resistance. Chief worries now are lack of RPois, RConf and RBlind. Nicki has seen her first AMHD, and Ren (awake and approaching), neither of which she is ready for. Current predicted death - offscreen breath.

On 27.3.2020 13:37 Nick wrote:
CL31, DL49. Still really only incremental improvements - slightly better stats, cloak of protection, dam and CON rings instead of STR and DEX. Still no RPois, RConf, and have a hat with RBlind but still prefer the crown of might. Had some fun with a lesser vault a few levels up - Smaug came out of it and breathed on me for 200+ HP. Still just teleporting uniques - ringwraiths, quaker, etc - and other nasties like lesser balrogs. I feel way underpowered and will probably die soon, but hey.

Had progressed quite well, got to CL32 and DL53 (IIRC) and was tackling a tricky diagonal vault when I was instakilled by a Great Crystal Drake - which I never saw. Come to think of it, I believe they're invisible in this version, and I didn't have detect invisible.

Interesting playing this version - I'd never played V earlier than 3.0.3. It made me understand a lot of the differences between O and V, this being the one O forked from.
