Artifactless rogue.
Most of my 86 characters were restarts to experiment with race/class combos and statistics. Many of the rest were deaths before clvl 10. I'm bad at openings.

The start has evolved to:
Sell weapon, armour, and spell book.
Buy main gauche; flasks of oil for throwing (thanks to forum newbie advice!); scroll of remove curse to allow ID by use of rings and amulets; scrolls of phase door.

12 points were put in STR and CON. High initial CON counters rarity of stat potions. High STR allows multiple blows while wearing rings of CON and resist poison, and reduces burden. My previous characters with some points in DEX and INT had low hp and died to breaths. Maybe it's just me.

I leave spell books at home and play like a stealthy warrior, using potions, scrolls, and devices. The middle game has consequently been slow.

Some lessons learnt the hard way:
-wands of sleep monster are good escapes until buying a teleport staff
-if you have used teleport other or teleport self, the level is unsafe (apparently I lack a sensible fear of danger)
-infravision is useful before getting telepathy
-use Deep Descent scrolls as escapes, not for diving
-stay near the stairs
-if there is a ring of CON (+4) or better in the BM, buy it!

A guardian naga has just dropped a Lothlorien bow with telepathy, allowing the wearing of a Crown of Serenity. Also recently acquired a Teleport Other rod and wand. I'm tempted to dive for speed items, but my intuition keeps screaming not to. Hmmm... Westernesse weapon for stats or Defender for stealth and regen?

This is the best one out of the 86 too. Tragic eh?

Found Mordenkainen's. I use the create stairs spell to escape when Saruman appears or a wyrm wakes up.

Dispatched Adunaphel with slay undead arrows because she was chasing me through the walls on several levels.

Have been lucky so far with CON potions giving +2 or +3 boosts.

Just bought some elvenkind armours, including one with poison resistance to free up a ring slot. Still looking for speed items.

Gained 4 levels with 4 potions of experience. If you look in the history, I gained a level in the town after recalling for a restore life levels potion.

Used my last speed potion to clear out a vault with teleport other. Good thing the GWoMC didn't wake up. It contained an un-IDed ring and amulet. They were a ring of speed (+7) and an amulet of weaponmastery. Lucky, because the next un-IDed ring and amulet were sustain charisma and sustenance.

Found 2 Keleks and was disappointed. Sold them for 15k each.

Will soon have enough sp to try using the brand ammo spell at 50% fail. Unsquelched intelligence rings but not found one yet.

Mughash's death avenges quite a lot of my ancestors.
Does Saruman never sleep? Talk about motivated...

It took 100k turns to brand the first stack of arrows with all the failures.

Cleared out a vault and found a (+15) speed ring, will just have to make do with it *sigh*. In another vault was a cloak of the magi with telepathy, finally allowing the change of launcher.

Using spell books now to save on inventory space. Bought a ring of intelligence from the BM. Considering throwing away the rod of speed.

Levels were gained from two more experience potions and fighting things. Has been hard with all the nether attacks. Tried shooting at the Tarrasque and Carcharoth, but their breaths were too strong. Glaurung escaped by summoning. Huan is showing up regularly, and is making me want to go back up the stairs to a safer depth.

Nearly stocked up with consumables for the final two fights. Just need more staves of banishment and magi. Not sure about character strength yet, low hp and AC.

Bought boots of speed (+10) from the armoury for 59k. Seems backwards. The speed boots should drop in the dungeon and the stability etc. boots should be in the store.

After killing Ar-Pharazon, accidentally cast teleport level instead of identify when I got confused and thought I was a paladin. Left behind un-IDed loot, not that there was DSM armour or anything. What a scatterbrain.

Hunted Carcharoth and Huan and breathed a sigh of relief. Lost a staff of healing while recharging.

A master Q summoned the Witch-King who summoned demons. Not sure who called Ren and Khamul. Gained a level from fighting but was forced off the level. The Witch-King had the better plan.

Decided to fight Sauron before losing the last staff of healing. Took the staves of banishment and magi, and acid branded bolts. Used shoot and phase door tactics in an open room. Sauron called Glaurung, then Vecna, both with escorts. Banished dragons and teleported away Glaurung. Teleported self from Vecna, let the reavers bring Sauron to me, then banished 'L' and teleported other Vecna. Sauron finally summoned animals, which got in the line of sight and were more of an obstacle than the others, but to no avail.

After Sauron fell, took the opportunity to kill Vecna. Recalled afterwards to preserve staves. Still looking for another staff of banishment.

After Sauron things became quieter. Fighting the Tarrasque again was dumb. Having not found a banishment staff in 200k turns and getting tired, decided to dive to 5000' with what I had.

Morgoth didn't summon much at first, so it was easy to get him down to half health with holy might bolts. He soon made up for this however by calling demons, uniques, and undead.

Sure enough, the banishment staff was destroyed on the first recharging attempt. Tried destructing away the summons, but this broke up line of sight. It was difficult to get enough shots in before Morgoth closed the gap, so eventually allowed him to get within melee reange before casting phase door. The spell failed once, allowing Morgoth one round of melee, but he missed with the drain charges attack. Ha-ha!

Medusa and some undead were called, so decided to back away so that Morgoth would overtake them with his superior speed. Managed a few shots each time before phasing, picked up bolts as opportunities arose, and whittled him down till he died.

With hindsight, it would have been better to carry a stack of phase door scrolls instead of one of the spell books.

As a usually paladin player I've always wanted to understand the rogue mindset. I think I get it now. You're supposed to think flexibly and be opportunistic. No need to worry about what depth is safe because stealth looks after you. Very unlike the paladin, where heals can protect you from the hordes if you choose a good depth and doctrine.

Nice job! How did you feel the lack of artifacts altered the game, if at all?

I'll comment on my experiences with this character and my other artifactless winner, Uluuksi, the dwarf paladin.

With a bad strategy the middle levels come as a shock. With a good strategy the difference is more subtle, as if you were using weak artifacts. You will really miss the elven rings.

Since you can't cover all needs with equipment, it's better to concentrate on getting telepathy, speed, base 4 resist, CON, and poison resist, in that order. Everything else is a luxury. Staves of teleport are a necessity because you will rarely get all of conf/blind/sound resist. Telepathy and good monster memory are important for avoiding instakills. My previous priest characters cast probing a lot with this in mind.

Melee is weak and launcher to_hit is low without Elessar and artifact gloves. You can kit out either for melee (high STR/DEX and sustains) or for archery, but rarely for both because you often need a weapon slot for telepathy, resists, or stats.

It's a game of preparation and stamina, like an expedition. You need to plan ahead what sort of equipment you realistically want to use, and be patient to get it. Finally you also have to take some risks, so a slightly cavalier attitude to danger can help too.
