My first thrall character to make it to a home! I started tinkering with thrall characters a few days ago and had fun using the stairs as my personal elevator to get to all sorts of treasure and goodies before overextending myself with greed and getting blasted to oblivion. Most of the characters I made were rogues with the unlight specialty who used stolen wands and rods to kill off monsters and grab mad loot. To be honest now that I am back home I don't know if I will mess much with Scumbeard, but it was a lot of fun scumming the edges of Anfauglith and Angband.

I couldn't resist the call of Scumbeard after all. Ridiculously easy fight with Mim complete with perfunctory crappy drop. I haven't played FA for more than 15 minutes since .23 so I'm trying to get used to the percentages for resists. I'm assuming there is some kind of decreasing returns for resists which my mathmatically challenged brain can't compute. Wishing I had more utility type stuff handy, specifically stone to mud and tele away wands. Some major healing and speed potions would be nice too... at least I've seen some speed potions so perhaps my shopkeep will get around to ordering them... Having fun. Oh yeah, neat re-work of the dragons... I hope I get a chance to enchant Calris up so I can get to melting them.

Yeah, resistances multiply - but I always just wield stuff and look at the numbers.

I thought Sauron might be getting lonely with people skipping over his dungeon so I thought I would pay him a visit. Unfortunately, it seems like Sauron isn't being very hospitable, filling every level to the brim with nasty hounds and wolves so much so that I have decided to give up and head back to Angband where the demons have welcomed me back with open arms. It's almost like returning to the scene of the crime, except now I resist confusion and can teleport reliably!

Sorry for half ripping off your name by the way. I saw Scumbeard and suddenly realised that Scumbag would be a fantastic name for a thrall assassin!

When you see Morgoth, give him another slap from me. :-)

That I will do, and quite the opposite about the name thing... it is nice to be named alongside such admirable hobbitses! Er, um, banders.

Came across a new one last night, some sort of demon outpost with a sort of lava starburst pattern with a place for a few pieces of treasure in the middle. I found an artifact main gauche there, and had fun wading through the lava and picking off the demons. I really want that cloak that gives chaos resist and perhaps maybe some speed boots or cubragol (yeah right) or swap out the nifty rings for speed rings. At least I came across a rune of protection scroll and I'm curious to see how they strong they are in this version.

LOL scumbeard, great name :D
good luck!

OOO and wearing Calris!!! my favest weapon :)~
It seems that itīs easier to reach 6-blows with it...
I remember that i had to have *** str and 190 dex to reach it a while ago... maybe from [O] to [FA] the blow table or weapon weight changed!

You're doing great for having no speed at your depth. May the RNG bless you soon for your perserverence!

I have a special place in my heart for Calris as well, it has a lot of character that only a handful of other artifacts can come close to. My favorite intricacy about Calris is that it aggravates. I find the whole come-get-some attitude it radiates very appealing. It led me to my first angband and faangband victories too. All that being said, the Glaive of Pain is my favorite. Just the name makes my eyes dialate. Speaking of weapons I came across a 2d18 lance and I'm keeping my eyes peeled for one of Psi's 1d21 storm hammers.

As well as my 2 1d21 Storm Hammers, I've also seen a 1d21 whip (!) and a 7d7 Great Axe. All randarts of course.

Finally found a speed ring. +5 isn't awesome, but at least it's something. At least now I have at least one ring type I know to keep my eyes open for.

I might could cram one more at least into there... hehe

Hanging around the 90's looking for tasty dragons and unidentified rings. The artifact ring I'm wearing activates for detection around every 50 turns so it is helping me find stuff now that my staff of detection bit the dust. On a funny note, I dared what seemed like the impossible to nab an unid ring and picked it up with the hounds of tindalos ripping me to shreds... to find that it was a ring of weakness -4! Omg, usually the *first* ring I find is weakness. Have had little time to play lately but visions of Scumbeard sort of dance in my head all the time. Sad. :)

Came across a Sky Drake so I killed it. He dropped a ring of warfare +7! I got to thinking maybe +12 permanent speed might be enough for Morgoth so I got the crazy idea to try Sauron out for a sort of lithmus test. I go straight to Sauron's lair and realize 85 is as deep as his dungeon goes, which I thought was weird. I thought it was 90 but it has been so long since I've been down there. Anyway, I'm sorry Nick but something is broken in Sauron. He was maybe 10 or 11 spaces away down a tunnel when I decided to tackle 85 so I quickly made a rune of protection and buffed up and waited. And then I waited a little more. I figured he would come attack me since I was wearing Calris, but he didn't. I detected evil and he hadn't moved yet. So, I decide to walk right up next to him. I drop another rune of protection and start wailing on him. It was as if he was afk, because he never did anything. He dropped the stone of lore, a ring of speed +10 and chaos dragon scale mail that I'm going to try to work into my kit later on this evening. I was curious to see if he would do his wolf transformation thing or if he had been tweaked in any other way since I hadn't seen him in so long, but the poor chap doesn't have the will to fight anymore.

It isn't just Sauron I'm afraid. There seems to be a random wait for all monsters at the start of every level. It is particularly noticeable in hounds and death quasits! They will suddenly all start moving several turns into the level - sometimes it can be 20-30 turns before they will get a go!

I think it is a somewhat strange side effect of the change to make stairs take no energy. I reported it to Nick a little while ago, but so far I believe the cause has been elusive.

On 23.6.2008 22:48 Nick wrote:
Yeah, it's weird. I'm planning to reverse the no energy stairs next time anyway, so maybe the problem will just go away...

Sorry for hijacking this ladder entry for this discussion... but Nick, will there be some other measure to protect the player from being instakilled on taking the stairs?

On 24.6.2008 14:15 Nick wrote:
Maybe :)

On 24.6.2008 15:39 HallucinationMushroom wrote:
No no Psi, hijacking ladder entries for FAangband discussion is a time honored tradition! Why, you could see just about the entire progress of FAangband from looking at all the characters!

I went to fight ol' Morgy after the Sauron fight while still at character level 47. I chopped him down halfway and he surrounded me with a winged dragon of power, chaos, some others, and Ancalagon. I teleported away and realized the whole level was a poor choice for fighting Morgoth and never got a chance to finish the job. I came across Ancalagon again soon afterward and gave him the heave ho, and before I knew it I got sucked into clearing a red dragon pit. I monkeyed around a little longer before going to fight Morgoth again and this time he didn't summon any creatures to spoil the battle. All in all Scumbeard was a very strangish character for me. Winning at around ~600k is very fast for me, but of course I did circumvent much of the beginning by playing as a thrall character. I had the most fun at the beginning, trying to take on just the right monster to level while surviving attempts to grab artifacts and other nice treasures. I can see where I could shave down turncount and speed the game up, but I think in the future I will take more turns because I miss digging zig zaggy tunnels with my weapon, resting after I pick up items to get pseudo id and I much prefer to grind more... I'm glad the red dragon pit turned up at the end. It would've been strange for me to play a character through without tackling at least one. Anyway, I think I'm going to let Scumbeard live because I want to take on some winged dragons of power, I didn't get a chance to brave one yet.

Congratulations! All the best with those WDoPs! I've only had a couple of chars who were up to smacking the old GWoPs about.

Nice - Longbeard Warrior thrall must have been tough to start out.

On 25.6.2008 23:42 HallucinationMushroom wrote:
The stealth sucks but being able to move freely and get some protection in rubble really helps especially since there is so much of it. Coming across a wand of some sort of major damage allowed me to take out a troll (half-troll I think) to jump to clvl 15. I had to consult the help files on how to use the wand, but it wasn't too difficult. Soon after that having Balli's axe made it easy to prey on Vrocks and later on other greater demons to get to clvl 29. It's easy for me to say now that it's not so bad, but before I got home with Scumbeard I probably plowed about 150 thrall characters to their deaths, each living maybe 2 minutes on average... perhaps 30 of those were longbeard warriors. I decided to stick with longbeard warrior because I'm more comfortable with them.

I love the new identify. I'm also glad to see rune of protection doesn't really do anything now. I fought Morgy the second time without using any and I didn't see any difference between the two fights.
