True Bersker Challenge Game

Kool!!My first challenge game victory.I'm overjoyed.Also my first victory in 1.0.0.
I usually play spellcaters.Love this challenge game.
The rules are:
* Never switch Tactics form Berserk
* Fight naked.You can only use rings,necklaces,weapons,sields(pointless) n tools of
Thats bout it.
My special thanks to a guy called Madman on the HOF forums.I didnt know this challenge
game existed.     
Game Summary:
- Great char to start out with. 28 strength but Learning was 5. 
- Found a Stone axe of devastaion in SMC.Great weapon for a berseker.
- Early game was a little irritating because I was levelling up as slow as a troll.Mabye slower.
- Major setback in the early game: I ran right inot Jharod.Forgot I was a true
  berseker. So no healing.
- Got so irritated I did Pyramid at lvl 13 n gained just 1 lv.Did Darkforge at lvl
  14.Pretty dangerous for a low lvl fighter class.
- Finally gained 3 lvls in Darkforge.Found a RoRegeneration.Good substitute for the
  healing skill.
- Now ToEF was a big problem.No RoIce,no fireproof blankets,n measly fire resistance
  lvl 1.
- Drained the darkforge pools.I was really lucky.Got teleport control,teleportisis and
  five wishes.Lost a few resistances,got doomed,cursed.Endresult: Heaps of SoCR 
- Luckily I finally got a fire drake corpse on the 3rd level of ToEF.ACW was a
  wussy.Hit him once and he was history.
- From then on things got much better.
- I actually pickpocketed Whirlwind from a Gremlin in the gremlin cave.Didnt use it
- DH was uneventful.
- I later had more problems in getting RoHK.My bridge building skill was bad.Had to
  make 3 trips.
- The mid game was quite normal.
- Now a new problem arose.After all this I was still at lvl 21 
- Was levelling up very slow.
- Deciding I needed experience went into the Minotaur caves.Got stat drained by the
  Magi but Emperor was a wussy.
- I was still gaining levels very slowly.Had a learnin score of 9.
- I had sworn not to do the bug temple but I had no choice.
- Got Dx to 96(yea not 99).This still didnt solve my learning problem.
- I finally gave up and started drinking PoExchange.The third exchanged my learning n
  dx.I suddenly realized that this would solve all my problems.Well all except DV.
- Made the final dive and the rest was normal. 
- Except for the fact that I never boosted my stats.
***Important note: The Axe of the Minotaur empeoror works better for true berskers
   that Sting n Needle.
