This was by far my best Barbarian ever, and the first one I ever made
into a magic user (I don't touch spellbooks with fighter types until
Concentration and Literacy are at 100).  I had the incredible luck to
find two RoDS on the way down to Khelavaster, so I was able to wish
for Concentration as well as the AoLS.  It took me a loooong time to
train it up to 100, and an even longer time to train Literacy up all
the way.  

When I finally managed it, I had a spellbook-reading session, and
found that their effects were somewhat erratic.  Sometimes I could
manage even advanced spellbooks (note my ability to cast Identify) but
sometimes even simple spellbooks would blow up in my face.  Still, I
went down the Rift to pick up some more bolt spells.  Even though I
only studied spells I actually considered useful, and was carrying a
pack full of spellbooks when I left, the librarian gave me the weird
tome.  My Toughness took a beating from all that studying, but it
hadn't been very high to start with, and was retrained with morgia.

I had surprisingly little trouble in the Bug Temple.  Perhaps this was
because I left it until rather late in the game, or perhaps it was
because I had pretty good DV, thanks to my maxed-out dodging skill and
highly trained shield skill.  I was mostly able to get away with
whacking the greater claw bugs on the surface, although I relied more
on bolt spells on the second level.  Sadly not many corpses were left
owing to my lack of Food Preservation.

I don't know just why the Earth Temple gave me such a hard time.
Maybe it was because of my lack of Toughness and PV (note that I have
the very light and bulging cranium corruptions).  Maybe it was because
I was meleeing the monsters without the benefit of Find Weakness.
Maybe making myself invisible for the duration would have helped - I'm
pretty sure that earth elementals can't see invisible.  Anyway, I had
a lot of difficulty in there, constantly needing to retreat and heal,
but I'd dealt with most of the stone grues and the Ancient Stone
Beast, so I thought I could handle it.  What a pity that a horde of
earth elementals managed to kill me before I realised that yes, the
situation was desperate enough to waste a potion of ultra healing.

                            Background Information
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Valeria             Race: female High Elf     Class: Barbarian
Eye color: amber          Hair color: silver        Complexion: light
Height: 6'                Weight: 2 pounds          Scars: 8
Age: 288 (grown-up, 75 years of unnatural aging added in)
Star sign: Book           Birthday: 1/Book (day 31 of the year)

YOUR HISTORY:
        Your mother was a wise shaman and healer. You didn't know your
 father and his origins seem to be very mysterious.
        As a child you were not accepted by the other children of your
 tribe. Your childhood was sad and lonely.
        During your youth you traveled to nearby tribes and traded with
 them. You met many strangers and learned a lot about the outside world.
        As a young adult you more and more separated from the more
 traditional members of your tribe. Your desire to see the outside world
 became overwhelming.
        At the age of 213 you left your tribe.

The unnatural aging was mostly from draining every single pool in
Darkforge, hoping to get some wishes.
