There are no doubt spoilers here.
Playing a priest, lousy strength (10), lousy intelligence (10), but
a very convenient spellbook of haste self.
Early on (dlevel 3?), I found an armour dealership that had, among
other things, a cloak of displacement, a blessed +1 cloak of
protection, boots of speed, and some gauntlets of power. Fairly
convenient when you have enough tripe to convince your pet to shop for
you. AC goes to -4.
along the way, I run into a blessed potion of invisibility. "Do you
wish the invisibilty to be permanent?" Sounds good to me ;)
A couple of lucky sacrifices got me Fire Brand and Frost Brand.
Next thing I hit was a bones level. The character I found had *14*
rings on him, and me with only one blessed scroll of identify. Such
a shame. I settled on the ring of warning and the ring of conflict,
and tossed the rest of them down the sink.
Ring of conflict + invisibility + speed = nothing kills you. I took
out a huge beehive (7x4), a barracks, a treasure zoo, a big throne
room. No trouble at all, they didn't even attack me. It was
ridiculous. Somewhere along the way I realized my warning was useless
and traded the ring of warning for a +5 ring of protection. AC -12, in
case anything tried to hit me.
So what killed me? That treasure zoo was full of neat corpses,
including a black dragon corpse. So, I ate it. It was tough swallowing
the whole thing, but I was ok. But one level farther down I killed a
violet fungus, ate it and choked to death.
ARGH! Nothing was going to kill me. I was invincible. And I choked to
death on a violent fungus?! Sigh. There is a bones though with lots of
nifties. If I ever get to level 21 again..

Your're not alone. I was a level 16 Barbarian with 160+ hp, AC of -12 in
DL 17. I killed and ate a rock mole while satiated. I thought that the
program will ask me if I want to continue eating, but the next thing I
knew, I choked to death on the corpse. Why wasn't I asked to continue
A question. Why eat violet fungus anyway? I thought it just made you
hallucinate. Is there something I don't know about it?
