Blessed Strained Berserk

Aviloren started off well, finding the bracers of war and a pair of
7LB in a gnoll / hyena vault on D:5. O_o  After that, all went normally
(aside from Thrundarr asking me to kill a large rust monster >_<)
until shortly before the time to descend to the water temple.  I'd
given up on saving Khel, but then I discovered that I'd picked up
an amulet of life saving goodness-knows-where.  I think that's the
first I'd found aside from wishing.  I got precrowned with the black
tome of what's-his-face.  Thanks, Onn.  I caught teleportitis as my
second corruption, which was annoying but not horrible.  Then, wonder
of wonders, a large rust monster showed up on UD:8 (closely followed
by a second one, to mock me), so I was back on track.  I finished
Thrundarr's quests, but had quite an adventure with the greater
daemon.  I got careless shooting at it and killed a dwarf who stepped
in the way.  Muscular dwarves attacked, but all the normal dwarves
were still friendly.  Only Waldenbrook came after me, and I ditched
him in the ogre cave.  The muscular dwarves killed off most of the
population of Dwarftown before I could get rid of all of them. O_o 
I thought that had been fixed.

Did I say uncontrolled teleportitis was annoying?  Silly me.  I meant
"extremely annoying."  I finally got teleport control from a
Darkforge pool (my 7 arrows of construct slaying lasted just long
enough), after finishing Thrundarr's quests.  Killing steel golems
put me up to L+, and I got crowned -- with the boots of the divine
messenger.  Nice Dx boost, but I wound up using my 7LB for everything
but the ToEF.  Along the way I pickpocketed a second AoLS (!).  I
cleared the water temple pretty easily and killed the Snake from
Beyond without getting hit.  I stuck it full of arrows and stayed
out of melee range with my 7LB.

The Ancient Chaos Wyrm died to only 7 hits from blessed rocks (skill
11)!  Wow!  Blessed missiles make a difference against undead and
demons, we know, and apparently make a huge difference against the ACW
(not sure about the SfB).  I cleared out the rest of the temple for
experience (plenty of fireproof blankets this game) and left.  On the
fourth level of the TotHK caves, I found the scorched spear (better
than my other spears, so not bad), guarded by Brunn the minotaur
(hello humanoid slaying quarrels, goodbye Brunn).  The skeletal king
died to a single blessed quarrel of undead slaying. ^_^  I dove
through the CoC without anything terribly unusual happening.  The
casino shop didn't have anything of great interest.  I cleared out
the air temple (rune-covered trident for demons, humanoid slaying
arrows for Yulgash) and earth temple (all my construct slaying ammo)
without incident.  Then I found a greater vault (my third ever) of
fire creatures on D:47. =)  The third fire lizard dropped a [+4, +5]
crown of fire. =) =)  I determined that the baby dragons alone were
worth 60K exp. each.  I quickly reached level 50 and started enjoying
the final archer power -- very nice.  In the end, the vault yielded
the crown of leadership, Ironfist, Preserver, the emerald dagger, a
SoCR, a PoGA, a GoGS, and much miscellaneous goodness (although a
frustrating amount of it got burned away before I could get to it).
What a haul!  I shot my way through the Mana Temple with no unusual
difficulty.  Nuurag-Vaarn died in 3 hits from humanoid-slaying arrows.
Wahoo!  I descended and got the hammer of the gods (woo) for my
uselessness gift.  The balors died to a couple of hits from blessed
demon slayers.  Fisty took 4, one critical.

I went into the blue dragon caves for the challenge and the glory.
I started running out of dragon slayers, so I switched to berserking
with the emerald dagger and a dagger of death, which worked quite
well.  I found some nice stuff, most notably a RoDS (which I used
for Find Weakness, hoping that would improve my fighting) and yet
another AoLS.  I killed Barney with little trouble, softening him
up with my few remaining dragon slayers and finishing him in melee.
I headed back up and fought in the arena until the arena master wouldn't
let me fight any more.  (He told me everyone had decided I was
invincible and wasn't betting against me any more.  ^_^)  I left and
went to the assassins' guild for the first time.  I fired an arrow
and the alarm rang, but even though the assassin prince was hostile,
he still gave me the Filk quest.  (I didn't do it.)  I killed him and
tried out those extraordinary twins for the first time.  (Wow!)  I
explored the rift and library for the first time just for the heck of
it.  No spellbook of Wish, oddly.  Deciding there was nothing left I
really wanted to do, I left.

Aviloren was by far my most powerful character ever.  The missile
capability was spectacular enough, especially with the multi-hit power
at level 50.  Throw in his effective melee fighting and better-than-
typical spell learning (thanks to Concentration), and you've got quite
a combination.  How powerful was he?  I don't think I used ANY prayers
or potions in the Mana Temple or D:50.

                            Background Information

Name: Aviloren            Race: male Human          Class: Archer
Eye color: green          Hair color: brown         Complexion: light
Height: 6'2"              Weight: 152 pounds        Scars: 1
Age: 36 (grown-up, 10 years of unnatural aging added in)
Star sign: Tree           Birthday: 7/Tree (day 337 of the year)

        Your parents belong to the nobility. They are rich, respected,
 wealthy and own more than they can count.
        In your childhood you were tortured by your cruel parents. They
 seemed to thoroughly hate and despise you.
        During your youth you were very lazy. You slept a lot and didn't
 care too much for your duties and tasks. Your parents were not very happy
 with you.
        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.
