Decided to go with something a little sturdier. Probably won't be as powerful as a cleric, but I suspect there will need to be a few failed attempts anyway before I get the hang of O-like variants.

Level 7, Eriador 6, 2 uniques defeated

Get a shield as soon as possible. They are offensive weapons, particularly for warriors and paladins.

Time to come clean, Cuddle II has died about dozen times, as I keep not reverting to the ultra-careful mode of play that still got Cuddle I killed relatively early. Most of those deaths involved blundering into a largish group of monsters, usually including novice mages that conf/blinded.

This incarnation of Cuddle II has already chewed through 4 scrolls of TL and a couple potions of CW. Not sure whether it is the wilderness or Oangband (vs V) that is causing me to have such a high early fatality rate.

Anyway, Cuddle II has accumulated a bit of coin, and am debating how to spend it. Probably will save for a _oTeleport.

Level 13, Ossiriand town, 5 uniques defeated

btw, Thanks nick for the advice on shields, I didn't realize how useful they were (esp. compared to V, in which going shieldless early is often a good idea).

Using Bless before you try to hit anything can really help, too.

OK, Cuddle has braved the wilderness and finally made it to the start of Amon Rudh. Also found his first artifact, which I suspect is a Phial replacement. I assume it needs to be *ID*, though examining it doesn't make that clear, unlike V. Right now, it is spellcasters that are giving problems, so escape is happening pretty carefully.

Level 20. Amon Rudh 17, 10 uniques defeated

Yes, the Lamp was the Phial. Good point about the *ID* - I'll have a think about those messages.

Nick-- I found an exploit which you may or may not be aware of: one can abuse the fact that shapechangers only lose excess mana when changing to non-human, but gain mana proportional to max mana when changing back to humanoid. For beornings, shapechange costs no mana, So, with my pool of 13 mana, Cuddle can cast 5 mana, shift to bear, and be at full mana. He can then shift back to human and be back at full mana.

Cute. Go right on exploiting that :) It will be interesting to see when that 1 INT makes the most difference to mana; I'm guessing now, but maybe it will make more later. It really should scale down when you change to bear, I suppose.

So I was fighting a Gaveroian berserker-- boy those things hit hard. I was down to 30 hp (it was almost dead too), so I TL. A DE didn't see the saber tooth tiger, so it got me to 13 hp while I was trying to heal up. So, another TL, and I got manabolted. Main lesson this time-- those berserkers are nasty, should have run from that sooner.

Those gazing eyes are one of my least favorite monsters (as a player = most favorite as a maintainer :). Not as stupid as my latest death, I think.

Right now, deaths are mainly learning experiences. The balance of O is much different (and more rigorous) than V, so I am still getting used to what my char can and cannot take. Only when I get better can I have truly stupid deaths :)
