It has been somewhat quiet here in r.g.r.a, so I'll make some noise by
delurking with yet-another-first-victory-post, playing ADOM 1.1.1.

Background Information
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Eldiban Race: male High Elf Class: Archer
Eye color: purple Hair color: silver Complexion: light
Height: 6'6" Weight: 149 pounds Scars: 3
Age: 195 (young)
Star sign: Candle Birthday: 8/Candle (day 278 of the year)

YOUR HISTORY:
Your parents were poor people. They loved you and cared for you,
although you had to hunger more than once.
As a child you lived through happy days. Your parents tried to ease
your life as much as possible and gave you a lot of comfort.
As a kid you often watched the adult adventurers preparing for new
exciting journeys. They sparked your imagination.
As a young adult you tried many occupations before finally deciding
on one to pursue. This has left you with a very broad base of lore.
You decided to become an Archer.


Okay. Having played on and off for since the early days of 1.0.0 and after
bitterly losing quite a many brave characters, I decided to give up my
fixation on mindcrafters and choose a combination I think must be among
the easiest ones to win with - a high elven archer.

I usually name my characters by the first word I can lay my eyes on, so
my high-score list contains notably many brands of juice, soda and beer.
This was my first character to be named with the help of the Fantasy Name
Generator. RNG does not want to be mocked, I see.

So this is how it all went down:

- Born Candle, so didn't bother with Healing and went for Herbalism
instead.

- Standard beginning: 1st kill in Holeinthewall (bandit), killed a beggar
for the alignment drop, applied for the Thieves' Guild, found downstairs
in SMC, took the time in killing Kranach & co for the arrows, which were
never really in short supply afterwards. Learned Detect Traps with the
prize money (invaluable!) and later also Pick Locks (very helpful.)

- There were blocking rivers on PC 1 and DD 3, so Unremarkable Dungeon it
was.

- There was a stable selection of herbs on UD 3, so I decided to go finish
Keethrax. One blinker corpse gave me teleport control on the way. Got the
amulet from Mr. Pare and learned Swimming from Blub.

- UD 5 had a lawful altar so I decided to go for precrowning - twice. And
for crowning as well, with the help of the heaps of stomafillia I had
gathered. Received acid immunity, bah. But also Executor + Purifier +
Sun's Messenger, well then. It was now day 25.

- With the artifact gear, Pyramid was a cakewalk. Rehetap went down with
just two shots.

- Dived into CoC all the way to Dwarftown on D:9. Pacified big room on the
way. No haggling took place before Waldenbrook sold me a pair of 7LBs.

- Did all quests up to the final one and headed for the graveyard. Picked
up the WoT on the way. Graveyard I cleared up with Executor and some
arrows. Wore amulet of balance, and dug up all the GTABH graves. One
emperor lich had to be told the Message two times, the lesser ones learned
the first time around. There was no particularly good stuff in the graves,
except for one RoDS.

- Rushed back to CoC to save Khelly. Fletched some arrows. Dug up all the
GTABH graves in D:18. Master liches went mostly down with a single shot.
Loot: rings of ice, invis, slaying and regen. Day 42.

- Cleared Darkforge but stroke a karmic being in the heat of the fight.
Stole an AoLS from a steel golem. Headed back to D:9, sacced enough stoma
to get back to very close. Fate Smiles again. Shop restocked with an extra
pair of 7LBs.

- RotHK was easy. Conveniently levelled, I decided to try the Minotaur
Maze for the 2nd time ever. Bad call, that place is tedious. With the
Messenger, the minotaurs posed no real threat but the acid traps got quite
a few of my scrolls and wands, including the only WoT I had. Luckily,
I realized later that I wouldn't need one. ID'd and dropped some gear to
CoC. Day 53.

- Rift, for the first time ever. Had lots of arrows, so didn't lose too
much gear falling. Cleared the library and got the tome, which was
promptly delivered to Mr. Minstrel, after a short excursion to WDL. SoCRs
where plenty.

- Back to Terinyo via HIVI. Blub was delighted. Took the southern route
back to CoC, taking a short pause wasting Assassin Prince.

- Day 62, final dive. The temples were uneventful, Cat Lord took quite a
many hits while tangled in webs. Hanging around in blue dragon caves gave
enough experience to reach xp level 47. Mana temple was the toughest place
in the game, clearing it eated up the missile pile quite good. Ran up to
Dwarftown via forest to fletch more arrows. Decided to scum some more xp
in the caves and a couple of greater molochs did the trick -- xp level 50.

- Day 69, the bottom. Uselessness gift was Ironfist. With the newly
acquired class powers D:50 was a cakewalk -- I don't think I lost a single
hitpoint while clearing the place. Handled the levers, and ran up picking
up a WoW with 0 charges on a way up.

- Dwarftown Elder, Terinyo, White Unicorn quest, home, first victory.

Conclusion:

If you're tired of not winning, try archer + Sun's Messenger + quick shot
talents + heaps of arrows + 7LBs. Available in corrupting areas near you.

Hmm again. My high elven archer took Healing and stayed lawful through the
entire game. To Hell with Detect Traps. (I wasn't counting on finding my
first useful marble altar on D:40, but whatever.)

Bah. The RotMC would've made your archer absolutely destructive. Then again,
you hit level 50 more quickly and won, so whatever.

That power is almost a cheat. It's disgusting.

Drakalor gospel, that is. And make that a high elven archer (although
drakish archers have their funny little charms for the experienced player).

Definitely easiest of the "melee" characters. I haven't played the
spellslingers for a long time, so I can't really compare. Maybe I should
roll a wizard next, just for comparison.

I had to use healing equipment once in the entire game, and that was when
I was logging trees in the Animated Forest and suddenly one of the trees
started getting through critical after critical. And after getting gear of
regeneration, the natural healing ceases to matter.

My character got trapped between cats quite early in the game after which
I slaughtered every single feline I encountered. I don't think I've ever
been able to get the ring, the closest must have been with some
mindcrafter or gnome, for the apparent reasons. Usually a hasty keypress
solves the issue by itself anyway.

Both of those, and fun too. Nothing quite like shooting down two balors
with a single shot.

I think I've never played a drakeling, because of the potential problems
in ToEF.

I didn't want to lose this one to a deadly ray. And as a minor bonus, you
get to see all the monsters you shoot. And very few monsters actually got
to try to get something through the PV anyway. Besides, the good eternium
gear was collected not earlier than from D:50.

That dagger is quite nice with all them criticals. Executor on the other
hand, is about the best weapon I remember ever using: one-handed,
excellent overall damage, slays almost everything that needs to be. Given
the choice, I'd use it again over any other weapon in the game.

Thanks. When it comes to winning computer games, nothing really comes
close to beating a roguelike. At least twice.
