Raw Message
I don't know if anyone still reads this group, but after playing off and on for almost exactly 20 years, I finally won. This is actually only the second time I faced Morgoth -- I don't know if that is unusual or not -- but the other time was also with a Dwarf Priest that was missing rStun; that character died when I forgot about the 5% fail rate for casting Heal while stunned.

During the fight with Morgoth, I used 2 !speed, 20 !*Healing*, 6 !restore mana, and 3 ?mass banishment. In retrospect, I should have used my !Life more -- I very often had to Blink, cast Restoration, and then !restore mana to bring my several non-sustained stats back up.

The real turning point of the game was at 3200' (turn 379671) when I found my random artifact boots, which are kind of crazy: +11 speed, Rpoison, and activate for haste.

Thanks to everyone who has posted strategy advice over the years!

I don't know if anyone still reads this group, but after playing
off and on for almost exactly 20 years, I finally won.
Yes, thank you for posting. It was a nice read. Congratulations!

I won't comment on your character since my knowledge is outdated.
From this character log it appears Angband has progressed a lot over
those years since I last tried it and now the Iron Prison is too
inviting.

and on for almost exactly 20 years, I finally won. This is actually
only the second time I faced Morgoth -- I don't know if that is
unusual or not -- but the other time was also with a Dwarf Priest that
was missing rStun; that character died when I forgot about the 5% fail
rate for casting Heal while stunned.
Congratulations :)

Awesome! Congratulations!

I was starting to think I was the only one left who's still checking this
group.

I used to play Moria on a VAX and I was getting quite good at it but never
made it to the end.

Now, years later, I discovered ZAngband and, boy, what a mistake. The game
sucks up hours and hours of my life and I have to make a conscious effort
NOT to play it! So I guess I'll never achieve the lofty goal that you have
managed. Well done!

ZAngband is light years ahead of the Moria I used to play in the eighties,
so much so that I still don't understand a lot of it but I'll keep dipping
my toe in.

During the fight with Morgoth, I used 2 !speed, 20 !*Healing*, 6 !restore mana, and 3 ?mass banishment. In retrospect, I should have used my !Life more -- I very often had to Blink, cast Restoration, and then !restore mana to bring my several non-sustained stats back up.
The real turning point of the game was at 3200' (turn 379671) when I found my random artifact boots, which are kind of crazy: +11 speed, Rpoison, and activate for haste.
Thanks to everyone who has posted strategy advice over the years!

Congrats!

Most of the Angband activity is over at the ladder page,
http://angband.oook.cz/index.php
and the associated forums,
http://angband.oook.cz/forum/
these days. There is still a lot going on, so please come on over if
you're interested. I should warn you - it's a webforum, not usenet

Cheers, Nick.
