As of March 31 2008, my ISP's USENET feed provider ceased to exist (buyout by another company). Since that date, I no longer have any access to the USENET. Therefore, I am forced to discontinue r.g.r.a frontend on Angband.oook.cz website.

Doing some testing now. Chardump below. I thought I'd start with a
warrior-type. (Ironband is classless, in theory all characters can
fight, sneak, shoot and cast spells, but in practice this depends on
your stats.)

You'll notice Conan has already been able to boost his stats somewhat
due to level ups. With Strength 18/40, Dex 18/10, Con 18/10, he is a
fairly robust individual. His 18/10 Agility also gives him +4 speed,
which is very handy.

He really started taking off when he upgraded from his starting dagger
to a +7/+7 Beaked Axe of Electricity (in Ironband, damage bonuses
multiply base damage rather than adding to it, so he's now doing
something like 9 times more damage than before). He gets 2.7 attacks
every round with the axe, or he can use his bow with +2 to hit and dam
(due to his high Perception) and 1.3 shots per round (high Dex).

Conan is not very stealthy, but doesn't much care. He does, however,
have 16 Perception, which as well as archery bonuses gives him good
pseudo-ID and searching, and enables him to evade some traps. I'm
considering pumping it to 18 for increased light radius. And he is
quite lucky, which means more 'good' drops. That probably got him the
Axe.

Since this is a shopless game, Conan was initially nervous about light
and food. However, he's recently found a Wand of Create Food and the
Phial of Galadriel. So, no worries there now. You'll notice, though,
that he's short on detection, with just the Wand of Detect Animals.
He's doing OK for identification, with the Wand of Remove Curse
allowing him to do some wield-testing. (In Ironband, hit/dam/AC
plusses become visible when you wear a pseudo-ID'd item, and rings and
amulets are auto-identified as soon as you wield them, so ID isn't as
much of a problem as you might think. He didn't even have to ID the
Beaked Axe, since he gets a 'You zap the orc!' message when he uses
it, which tells him it's branded with electricity.)

A second spellbook would be nice - not that Conan's the best caster
ever.

Yours adventurously,
A.
