Just to preface this, I've been playing Hack on and off over the years
ever since 1.01E came out on the PC. I managed to win 1.01E once, but
that was many many years ago. This is the first time I've ever ascended
in nethack, or won any version of nethack for that matter.

A quick recap of my game, from memory mostly. I started with a Gnomish
Wizard, and made a protection run immediately. Managed to buy about 6
points of that, and then leveled up and started down the dungeon. Did
sokoban next, then went back for the luckstone. Got to level 14, and did
the quest, chased the Dark One all over the quest maps until finally
killing him right below the quest start level. Proceeded on to hell, and
did vlad, orcus, jubilex, etc, then found the square and killed the
wizard. The wizard in my game was particularly evil. Every time I met
him, he double troubled me as his first move, and stole my Eye as his
second. After a few close calls with him, I managed to make it to the
sanctum, and the wizard grabbed the amulet off the corpse of the high
priest. I then chased him up 2 levels, got it finally by killing him and
his twin with a rubber chicken, and proceeded upwards. I ended up
crossing Orcustown about 10 times, due to level teleport, and the wizards
popping back and forth. One time the wizard even double troubled me,
stole the amulet, and one ran up, while the other ran down. Eventually I
got a handle on it, and made it to the planes, which were relatively
uneventful except for the Astral. On the astral plane, after guessing
wrong about the altars twice, I was nearly killed by Pestilence. Had 1 hp
left, and wasn't wearing my amulet of LS. Manged to flee him a bit, and
got my HP up to 17, and hit him with MM a few times to kill. Immediately
put on my amulet, and got relatively lucky for the rest of the voyage to
the altar.
garbled, neutral female gnomish Wizard

Wonderful. With 1 HP standing next to Pestilence, that has to be the
closest, most skin-of-teeth FAP I've seen.

You only had an AC of -28. It looks like you were carrying everything
you needed to get another 6-10 points of AC. Every bit helps,
especially when you are XL 29. Once I watched Zadir ascend in 19000
turns with AC of only -19, but he's the one with the high score on NAO.

It helps to be extremely lucky (10 and above) to tangle with Rodney and
the Riders. Many things I can't remember roll against your luck.
Obviously you didn't need it. Did you ever toss valuable gems to
coaligned unicorns?

Outstanding first ascension. And only 46K moves.
