Summon Monster is generally counterproductive to living.

I was getting bored and used it on L2 unknowing that it would summon stronger stuff than the average L2 monsters.

It's okay, I do it too -- on purpose. It's like a test of faith. If I can't survive the summoned monsters, then I don't deserve to live. It gets really bad when I find a staff of summon monster. Just keep using it in clear rooms until it runs out of charges. Now that's the way to play. :)

(My pally sucks at the summoner game, though. My dwarf just breaks shit, so he's good.)

Pfft, I started a new Priest, it's freaking near impossible to get past the first few levels at a comfortable speed.

Also my new mage's initial book and the book I bought had Magic Missile as illegible. :?

Yes, it's being carried over to that forum I made for those who make it that far. I think I'll put up some challenges tonight and see if anyone can complete them.

Epic threadomancy.

Though this thread is in need of reviving. Unless I'm missing one of the sub-forums that are active. I gave up on Angband, but still have a char around level 25. I'm spending my ASCII game time playing NetHack, and some DF. I still haven't even gotten into any of the unique areas other than Sokoban in NetHack. It's just so insanely hard compared to Angband.

I played NetHack, but it seemed really tedious with the interface and all. I play Dungeon Crawler Stone Soup, but I may likely start playing Angband instead.

NH's uncustomized interface is really tedious. But once you customize it to your needs and get used to it, it's really quite nice. What I like is the challenge of being alone. In Angband you have a town. Not in NH. Also, Hunger is much more of a problem, you can and will die of hunger all the time.
