Paladin YAWP.

I only recently noticed that it is possible to start a point buy High Elf Paladin with 18/40 STR and 18/10 DEX, which gives 4 blows to start with a Dagger/Main Gauche. The down side is having a very low CON and WIS at first. Never-the-less, the added offensive suits my aggressive style so getting to Stat gain was quite easy.

Next ,I'll focus on Kobold Warriors, which can also be point-bought as 4-blows starters (,but with low CON). I want to see how lower HP, innate Poison resist and 4 blows go for coin pits.

First, I'll dump the what I had when I left to firght Morgoth and then the actual winner dump.

Indeed! I have managed them a couple of times, but they take a lot of time, effort and consumables. If there are too many static druj's left in the pit with LOS, it can be very difficult to clear. (that's assuming you manage to kill all the Reavers and Dreadmasters first wink )

If a small level is generated with an undead pit, it can be very dangerous. Tele-self is not always a decent escape.

Re: Paladin YAWP.

I forgot what it was exactly that forced me to flee the stronghold, but as you can read between the lines, I was quite annoyed at having to flee.

I was very close to completition, but somehow got knocked from 900+ HP to 120 in one round despite being at around +14 permanent speed for the third time and decided not to push my luck with ?oTeleport due to the presence of many Drujs all over the dungeon.

The only other fail safe resource I had was ?oTP_Level, so I fled...
