My first Splinter had a very successful suicidal run to Angband (along the way I picked up Balli Stonehand, which is an incredible early find), but then I lost the character to a player ghost crash -- apparently looking at a Lich player ghost is a bad idea... I now have a timed autosave on, so this shouldn't be such a large problem.

It took several attempts to duplicate the success of the first Splinter, but this attempt has been going very well... I just cleared a red dragon pit with 30-40 Winged Dragons in it, which gave me four levels and many, many artifacts. I'm not sure what the best equipment selection is, nor precisely what more I need before trying to win... presumably more healing potions will be needed, at least.

Oh my goodness.

I see Anf58 is still coughing up the goodies. That is quite some MHDSM too.

I fear the bar has been raised a little out of my sight with this one. All the best against Morgoth...

Crikey, 122k turns to Ang 97 without getting mashed looks unmatchable. I was busy being proud of myself that my best Splinter got to Menegroth in 70k turns... :)

Okay, Morgoth is dead. I was inefficient at the end for a few silly reasons (which probably cost me five to ten thousand turns):

1. I forgot that this is FA and that Sauron does not need to be killed and certainly does not show up on Angband 99! But I chose equipment for Sauron and searched 1.5 lvls of Angband 99 for him... I only realized what was going on when teleport level took me downwards! And then I had to recall to get stuff for fighting Morgoth...

2. I had also forgotten how easy Morgoth is for a character with a reasonably good melee attack and Mana Burn. Splinter probably could have killed Morgoth immediately after I posted the previous character dump, or at least certainly didn't need so many healing potions.

Anyway, this just means that there is definitely room for someone else to come under this turncount... :-)

Fantastic effort. Well done. However, if 'banding is ever going to make it as an Olympic sport, I insist on seeing whether Splinter can pass a dope test. I've heard rumours that the use of performance enhancing fertilizer is becoming rife in the Ent community.

Do Potions of Heroism count as performance-enhancing fertilizer? I'm not sure, but Morgoth might have dispelled away the evidence...

No ttyrec here, but I can give the general outline of what Splinter did:

1. Recall to Amon Rudh and go up to the wilderness. This moves Splinter closer to Angband, which is the initial goal. (Actually, I first set a recall point right outside Taur-Im-Duinath in order to be able to recall to the town later, but this really wasn't very useful to me... I think I got one potion of healing and one potion of restore mana out of it. It would have probably been much more useful had I realized that buying out a traveling merchant shop works...)

2. Run through the wilderness to Gondolin. Pick up items as they show up, but the goal is to travel as quickly as possible. This only starts to become a little tricky near Gondolin, since high stealth and efficient movement allows one to evade most enemies. Even hounds are not usually a major problem at this point, since breath attenuation means that you can just run from them and take the breaths

3. Move home to Gondolin, identify/sell the loot picked up (there wasn't much if I remember correctly) and use the money to buy scrolls of teleportation and teleport level.

4. Continue running through the wilderness towards Angband. It was probably fairly close to night (50000 turns) at Gondolin, so Splinter will soon be able to take full advantage of unlight's stealth bonus. This makes things easier, but the creatures start getting very dangerous at this point. This is where the teleportation/teleport level come in -- you will need to use them from time to time. Although teleport level takes Splinter out of the wilderness, it is usually not difficult to find stairs to come back; alternatively, another teleport level will always work (so two scrolls of teleport level act as alter reality in the wilderness. Try to get as far as possible before daybreak (60000 turns); this Splinter got to Anfauglith 48.

5. Wait 10000 turns for night. Splinter spent most of that time hanging around the edges of Anfauglith 46 and 48, picking up items. The main gain from this time was a decent number of stat potions. Also, Splinter recalled back to Gondolin at some point to restock on teleport.

6. Run to Anfauglith 58. This is not too bad in the night with enough teleport, even at CL 14.

7. Profit -- There are many artifacts at Anfauglith 58, as well as other useful items. This is very dangerous at first (I believe that Splinter fell to 0hp once after a nexus vortex teleported him into a mass of inertia hounds...), but not too bad if you stay near the edge of the map. Gain experience from the frequent groups of Vrocks and Mumak... they both provide large quantities of experience and are quite easy to kill (even at very low levels using archery/wands). Splinter stayed at Anfauglith for ~25000 turns and was quite strong by the end -- the luckiest find there was the +9 speed Ring of Warfare, which induced me to descend into Angband.

Oh, and getting items from Anfauglith 58 is more annoying at night (though still perfectly doable with object detection), so Splinter went and killed Mim during part of one such night to get Mana Burn.

8. Go down. Splinter's only source of telepathy at this point was a weapon of Gondolin (and he didn't find another source until the party at Angband 97), so switching weapons all the time was annoying. But descending through Angband was straightforward enough. Splinter was mainly just looking for doable demon/dragon pits on his way down, since they provide a lot of loot and experience. Packs of Mumak were also slaughtered for experience whenever found. I think that Splinter may have found a couple of lesser dragon pits, but nothing particularly exciting showed up until the rather nice artifact ring I used until the end.

9. Kill Winged Dragons. At this point, Splinter was easily strong enough to kill Winged Dragons of Fire or Bile, with the desired immunities and resistances. Splinter bounced around in the 90s of Angband for a while looking for dragons and eventually found a pit which was almost half Winged Dragons of Fire. The resulting gains provided almost everything remaining needed to win, though Splinter still went around killing more dragons and accumulating more consumables for a little while afterwards.

10. Kill Morgoth. Splinter had +20 speed from equipment, all relevant resists, a reasonably good Mana Burning melee attack, and more than enough healing potions. Retire.

I'm trying a very similar strategy at the moment and I actually reached Anf58 quicker than you. After nightfall I recalled back... only to discover I'd forgotten to move home - D'OH! I've now wasted any advantage in making my way back to Gondolin again...
