I have been playing ADOM for over a year and a half without successfully
completing it. I have finally successed with Grax, a Dwarven fighter. Grax
went the lawful route, figuring that was the easiest way to win the game.
Having a lawful dwarf was really useful in the Dwarven village cause the
village had an altar of my alignment already there. No need to look for one.
Grax completed all the standard lawful quests and retrieved all the orbs.
The only creatures in the game that really gave Grax a really hard time were
the Emperor Liches. Can you say OUCH! Emperor Liches slowly drain away
attributes like its water. Had to get out of there in a hurry. The Balors,
which I thought would be the toughest creatures to defeat, were quite easy
for Grax. Rolf's Companion and the Executioner battle axes made quick work
of them. After closing the Chaos gate, Grax wandered around adventuring the
countryside. He looked for ways to remove some of his corruptions. He got
tired of that and left. Long live the Dwarven Empire!!

                            Background Information

Name: Grax                Race: male Dwarf          Class: Fighter
Eye color: green          Hair color: brown         Complexion: tanned

Age: 114 (grown-up, 53 years of unnatural aging added in)
Star sign: Dragon         Birthday: 10/Dragon (day 160 of the year)
----------Being born under the Dragon was awesome.

        Your parents belong to the lower class. They were honest
 hard-working people, who did everything to enable you to live a
 comfortable and fine life. They were not very succesful.
        As a child your parents cared a lot for you. Despite all
 circumstances you enjoyed a happy and fine childhood.
        During your youth you had a lot of fun playing with other kids of
 your age. You always were a natural leader and the center of interest.
        Your young adulthood was characterized by hard and long work. You
 had decided to study under a renowned master. To your great disappointment
 you had to find out, that he was a hard, unjust and tyrannic man,
 embittered by his old age. Your apprentice years were quite terrible.
        You decided to become a Fighter.

After he leaves the Drakalor Chain he is welcomed by his people with great
honors. They acknowledge his noble deeds, his valor, his cunning and his
great skills that helped to prevent the complete destruction of the world he
knows. His severe taint by the forces of Chaos prevents him from ever
leading a normal life. He always remembers the glorious deeds that took his
life away. His sacrifice is remembered in the stories of his people, but not
