Blessed Invisible Bloated Berserk

Non-boosted stats with standard equipment would be something like
St:38 Le:41 Wi:38 Dx:30 To:33 Ch:20 Ap:38 Ma:26

Standard early game: first kill in Lawenilothehl (cutpurse), pop in
the SMC (no stairs found), do the PC as much as is safe (no saved puppy
this time), kill Kranach if possible (check), do 6 levels of DD.

A neutral altar at PC:2 made a precrowning feasible. The gift was the
emerald dagger, which stayed as the main weapon all the way until D:50.
The first major challenge was to find the stairs in the SMC. Only the
heavy use of Darkness made it possible.

As usual, getting an AoLS required extra work. Draining all pools
yielded no wishes, but I ended with a really nice set of intrinsics:
death ray resistance, paralyzation resistance, see invisible and
I got to keep teleport control. There was a potion shop at PC:1 so
I got a nice heap of potions of exhange. After some ring-dipping I
ended up with two rings of djinni summoning: problem solved.

I pacified the Big Room for the first time ever. I got all the 
stomafillia, morgia and mareilon I needed. I didn't bother with
any sickness or starvation based stat-raising techniques, however.
A scroll shop at D:21 and a ring shop at D:30 were convenient.
At D:50 I read 6 blessed scrolls of item creation and got one
useful item: a potion of gain attributes. 

I found 2 magical writing sets (3) and wrote 6 scrolls of chaos
resistance at the cost of about 24 mana points.

I ended up with 9 wishes in total: there was a wand of wishing with 2 
charges in ToEF and I found 4 more RoDSs. The first wish: AoLS. The
second: seven league bootss, as I didn't find a single pair. The third:
spellbooks of Rain of Sorrow. The fourth: spellbooks of Minor 
Punishment, because I needed them to clear a greater vault of Karmics.
The fifth: willpower. There was a greater vault of undead with 10
emperor liches. I could reach Wi:46 with the Water Orb, Sword of
Nonnak and an amulet or Perseverance +3. The wish yielded 4 points
and blasting the ELs through the walls of the vault's inner room was
nice and easy. The sixth wish was used for a girdle of giant strength
just before the final dive to D:50. The last three were used for speed
before entering the Chaos Gate.

Also a greater vault of giants was found and cleared.

Killing Andy with a speed of about 800 and potion-boosted stats was
really easy.

Other than the reduced spellcosts, the priest class powers are completely
useless by the time they are given. I never turned undead or destroyed 
minor or major undead.

                              His further life:

After slaying Andor Drakon and dispersing his malevolent energies the scales
of Balance appear before you. All the forces of Balance seem to be united
behind them. You are lifted to the status of an Avatar of Balance and the
tales of your deeds are spread all over Ancardia.

Your deeds are recounted at camp fires and interpreted by philosophers and
priests alike. The common man looks up to you and you slowly start to be
revered as a minor power of Balance. After a few millennia have passed you
are raised to the position of a demi-god to guard Ancardia from the forces
of Chaos and Order forever.

Under your guidance Ancardia becomes a balanced and happy world, enjoying
its own freedom to be never again threatened by the unbalancing powers of
the universe.
