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.

Heh heh.

Ironband, like NPP, does seem to start you in a hallway. At deeper
levels it's safer than a room, to avoid the 'pack of gravity hounds'
scenario - but in the early game (before you can teleport) it can lead
to nasty situations.

200' at Ironband is more like 300' in Vanilla - so cave orcs are
uncommon but not unknown at that depth.

Anyway, bad luck, but have another go - your next @ may be more
fortunate!
