Fifth victory. Kurglash, the trollish weaponsmith. name was just something i typed.

First to SMC like always, leveled a bit and got the blanket. Then killed kranach
and did puppy quest, was still C so i couldn't get Healing from Jharod and no altars
yet so i descended through the UD but there were lawful or neutral altars there either,
only a chaotic altar and a forge, ME LIKES FORGE!
Picked up lots of crap and melted it into ingots and forged like crazy until i felt safe 
behind metal caps [+8, +4] and splint mails [+6, +9] etc.. 
Also found a pool that yielded me a wish for 7lb's.

Then off to CoC were i found some altars and did the first dwarven quest so i could become
literate. Then i went back to UD to forge some more n convert altar for a precrown, but 
when i offered 3000 i heard *WELCOME BELIEVER*, argh.. Anyways i killed hotzenplots and 
got the amulet of order. Went back to CoC, sacced small amounts on L altar to get to N+ 
and then i went back to the UD for crowning didn't feel like waiting until lvl 11 for 
precrowning so i just took normal crowning; 
got acid immunity and hammer of the gods, which is crap.
But oh well. the i went to get healing from jharod.
but there i noticed something truely horrifying. JHAROD THE HEALER HAD BEEN KILLED!!
i looked in my kill list and saw: 1 healer. How is that possible?! gaah, ??!?! whatever
omg.. no healing or herbalism skill. gaaah. this was going to be though. Especially
was food was becoming a problem. i went back to CoC and did the dwarf's quests. 
after i'd done them i was still only lvl 12 so i decided to slay some gremlins. 
that gave me a SoCR, a PoGA, bracers of regeneration, mace of destruction,
ring of invisibility and loads of stuff to melt down. smithed some more
and by that time my DV/PV was 50/53 on Berserk mode, nothing could touch me. 

Feeling really cocky i wiped out the Darkforge at exp lvl 12 without breaking a sweat.
And i even found skullcrusher in the loot, i couldn't believe my eyes. 
I've never found an artifact in darkforge before. yay :)
i gained two levels in darkforge so now i was able to enter the pyramid, i was shaking with terror.
after the pyramid i was facing a dilemma many ADOMers are familiar with: 
no Wand of cold and no AoLS.
But i went to the TotHK in search for experience and wand of cold, and can you believe my luck:
i found a wand shop on the level above the cavernous ones, selling a wand of cold :D
so i got the RotHK and i was lvl 15 at that time 
and couldn't think of anything else to do but the ToEF. so i started to prepare myself, 
i already had 2 rings of ice and with the elemental gauntlets i had lvl 2 fire resistance, 
together with bracers of regeneration and quite many potions of extra/ultra healing 
and a blessed wand of cold (36) i felt quite confident. I cleared the ToEF with no bigger problems,
was down at 50 HP a couple of times. 

After ToEF i went straight to Darkforge to clean the pool because i knew
i had to get an AoLS, but no wishes. 
hey only removed all my good intrinsics including teleport control,
but also my unnatural aging. :)
I wanted to save khelly so i went to the ID to look for AoLS and some exp. 
met some Greater Titan and an Emperor Lich in the same tension room, 
but i didn't dare fight such powerful monsters yet so i fled.
Gained back teleport control from blink dog. 
Killed a Doppelganger King before i noticed why the raider was so though :)
Came to a level with the "You feel threatened message" 
so i read a scroll of monster detection and saw a room
full of black W's , read a scroll again, and this time they had changed color. Uh-Oh... i fled.. :)
while killing off a tension room of giants i looked at the pile of corpses 
to see if anyone had dropped anything of interest, and there it was: 
THE ORDINARY RING. thinking that the ring of damage already was identified as onyx ring
it could either be ring of slaying or RoDS. holding my breath i id'd it: 
ring of djinni summoning, Yay! :D

Now i headed back towards the surface thinking the ID wasn't a safe place for a little troll.
on the way back up i got my third corruption: poison drips from your hands, bleeh. 
Luckily i had a pair of Thick Gauntles but i was reluctant to remove my smithed uber-gauntlets :)
i also found a phase dagger and a sword of sharpness.
wished for AoLS and saved Khelly then i started descending. did the water temple and soon reached casino.
never found so much crap in there, only shit, except an AoLS. Killed the Cat Lord, he gave me one lvl
from 20-21. duh.. 
found 2 greater vaults with giants containing Protector, Robes of Resistance, 
Hammerhead and i believe Staff of the archmagi was there too.
my eternium plate mail of life got heavily damaged there so i put on the robes. 
then i went on doing the air and earth temples. 
The summoner summoned lots of nasty monsters before i could slay him. 
Then i did the Wyrmquest and found some nice scrolls and potions nad gained exp.
after that mana temple, the archmage fell to few hits. 

after mana temple i went up to the surface to kill waterdragon, she gave me one level and 
in her loot i found the preserver, a really nice artifact.
then i restocked and smithed some and headed to D48.
turned the stairways and went to 49, uselessness gift was jet-black glaive. wohooo...
on D50 i killed everything and gained 7 or 8 lvls to 39. only had about 30 mill exp.
also found jet-black battle axe and heaps of eternium items for smithing.
Went up to the surface and had the unicorn cleanse me and i smithed my plate mail and a tower shield,
went to the SMC, knocked off an extremely experienced Titan and become lvl 40

Wanted to reach max lvl so i did a deep dive into the ID, where i found lots of GM's and GT's
that helped me reach my goal. 
also found 2 RoDS and a Ring of weakness. 
used that to train strength  for a while bot got tired of that as it took so long 
time before i found them ogre armies.
where thinking of doing the bug temple and train dex a bit but didn't feel like it.
wished for EM once, killed them off and then left. forgot to forge the moloch armor i was wearing.
that could've been cool.

peace out

        Your father is a guildmaster. Your family generally is rather
 wealthy and well-known in your home town.
        As a child you had to survive pretty harsh times since your parents
 seemed to have run out of luck. Their wealth was ever-declining and times
 were very hard.
        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 were a credit to your family. Your parents
 supported your plans and were very understanding. They tried to help you
 along your way with all means at their disposal.
        You decided to become a Weaponsmith.
