Started an Orcish wizard. Dex 18, very nice for a wizard, my hits don't miss. Multiple scrolls of identify at start and on first level. Huge armor shop on level 3. Identify the lot, oilskin cloak, cloak of protection, leather armor +2, Corunthum and speed boots.
First two levels of gnomish mines are lit (again crazy luck) and minetown shop has cross aligned altar, but shop has holy water, and a magic lamp. Tool shop has blindfold, skeleton key and uncursed magic lamp.
Somehow I have 10 potions even though I've only visited 8 total levels. Dunno what the potions are. Don't care. Head topside and make holy water.
A wand I found is magic missile, the other is make invisible.
Rub magic lamp and wish for SDSM +1.
Level 4, ANOTHER huge armor shop, padded gloves. Find a mummy and zap self to make self invisible.
Now I have speed, reflection, magic resistance AC -3, str 25, Dex 18, a blessed bag of holding, blessed scrolls of identify, two more spellbooks are blessed (create monster and protection) and yes, I can STILL use my force bolt spell and protection spell (failure rate with GOP is only 15%). And invisible.
I haven't even been to Sokoban yet! Do I even need to go? I have reflection and a blessed bag of holding already!
But yes, I'll go to sokobon for food, wands and scrolls (especially earth).
Anyway, I think this is one of the best starts I've had in nethack history.
Now let's hope I don't die of starvation, food poisoning, or something stupid.
Some orcs have all the luck.
