I was mainly caught off guard by suddenly everything attacking me and then realizing that I apparently broke the tension by dropping my bow to get flaming arrow & dex and picking it up again.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=20345 Entwithnoname, Angband L50 Warrior Kobold <p>By Sideways</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: My second ever attempt with randarts, and my first win :)<br /> <br /> The closest I came to dying was a really stupid incident where I very nearly starved to death because I thought I'd make it to the general store in time, even though I kept fainting... and I did make it to the general store in time, but I couldn't buy food because I had no room. I had to go out of the store, drop something, faint, buy food and eventually escape 1 turn before I'd have starved.<br /> <br /> It's not even clear if that's the stupidest thing I did during this game. The other contender happened at 2000', when I had a 5-9 level feeling, found a vault, cleared all the monsters in it... and recalled back home by accident and couldn't cancel it because I only had the one Rod of Recall and no scrolls. I'm sure I left a lot of awesome stuff behind; I'd IDed about a third of the items in the vault and found two (three?) artifacts and some good ego stuff already. <br /> <br /> Then I recalled back to the dungeon, found another vault with lots of artifacts in it - and accidentally recalled to town AGAIN, still with only the one rod of recall. This time I was able to cancel it by speeding myself up and teleporting near a ? of Word of Recall... and then came the really, really stupid bit. I tried to make 100% sure it wouldn't happen again by dropping the rod of recall... and, instead of dropping the rod, I accidentally zapped the rod. I am not kidding.<br /> <br /> I was lucky and could cancel that too, by speeding myself up again and locating another scroll of Word of Recall... but it wasn't one of my proudest moments.<br /> <br /> I was hoping to find the awesome randart sword of gamebreaking, but I never did... but I did find the awesome bow of gamebreaking at 2750'. It was a funny thing - the level had a giant bubble vault of the type that pretty much guarantees a 9-9 level feeling, and it also had a teeny-tiny mini-vault, and that awesome bow was in the mini-vault. It probably made me overconfident, since I very nearly got myself killed by Carcharoth while clearing the bubble vault; that was the second-closest I came to dying.<br /> <br /> There are many reasons why warriors, unlike mages, are seldom late-game-happy; but warriors doing less damage in melee is usually not one of them. It was very frustrating to know that my previous winner (a mage) had been much stronger in melee.... because he found Deathwreaker and I never really found anything. For most of the game I carried several weapons around as swap items - one for rBlind, one for killing demons, one for killing dragons, one for speed activation, one for cold immunity etc.<br /> <br /> Apart from weapons, I had trouble finding speed items - when I reached the big bubble vault at 2750' I still had +0 base speed. (I had found a pair of randart boots that would have given +2 speed, but I couldn't use them since that would have meant giving up rNexus; and given that at one point my base STR/DEX were 18/100 while my base WIS was 3, I considered rNexus a key resist. I did *not* want to see those stats swapped :)<br /> <br /> The Morgoth fight was very comfortable, I was never in any danger. I actually had much more trouble with Sauron, and even Carcharoth who was on the same level as Sauron; of course that was partly because I wasn't carrying nearly as many healing potions around, and partly because I wanted to have everything covered for most of the game and only switched to my final kit (with +60 AC and more damage/round, but no immunities and no rConf) for the Morgoth fight.<br /> <br /> Thank you RNG!</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=20344 Dalaerin, Angband L33 Warrior High-Elf <p>By Grotug</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Want the items in a treasure room but I am unfit to take on the opposition.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=20303 Dorimrel, Sil L141365268 no-class Sindar Doriath <p>By wobbly</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: hurted.. hm, I should read what I write before clicking</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=20304 Skeezy, PosChengband L50 Skillmaster Imp <p>By Arjen</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Winner :)<br /> <br /> The Serpent was really annoying and the fact I didn't kill a lot of uniques might have made things worse.

He inherited a small fortune, and with cleverness and toughness turned it into a larger fortune. Alas, he has serious deficiencies in the wisdom and charisma departments. Left handers call him a demon, but right handers says he's just a little impish. His plan is to drain the swamp, build some walls, and make Poschengband great again!</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=20338 SquatBoy3, Angband L50 Warrior Dwarf <p>By Egavactip</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: SquatBoy1 died in the very endgame, just before the final two battles, thanks to an item fail fighting one of the big hounds. A shame, because it was a great character. SquatBoy2 died pretty early, confused and blinded while surrounded. But SquatBoy3 rose to the challenge. After a nice fast start, he became a bit problematic. Had problems finding good artifacts, especially cloaks and helmets, and had real problem finding good items to add dexterity. Plus had a fair number of resistance gaps, including an inability to have Rnether without a swap that lasted the whole game. Except for his excellent hit points, I did not think SquatBoy3 was all that strong a character--and I did not have as many *Healing* and Life potions as I would have liked. My low, unprotected dexterity meant that I spent a lot of time while fighting Morgoth just eating mushrooms. But in the end he beat Morgoth. He is probably on Trump's cabinet now.</p> http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=20305 Argos, PosChengband L24 Blue-Mage Mindflayer <p>By knaveightt</p> <p><b>Comment</b>: Silly death getting ambushed by a Frost Giant and pack of centipedes.
