1) A Ring of Hunger makes you consume more food; a Ring of Sustenance makes you consume less. You'll also consume more if you're wearing an artefact ring/amulet which "(greatly) speeds your metabolism". Others have no influence.

2) I have no idea, really. I don't think that Spellcasting skill and character level strictly influence the number of spell levels to spend. Spellcasting skill increases the power of your spells when cast, and character level limits the level of spells you're allowed to memorize. My best guess is that levels to spend on memorizing spells are assigned when you level up, perhaps based on Spellcasting skill.

3) Wearing an Amulet of the Gourmand and having the Saprovore mutation makes it less likely for you to get ill from eating contaminated or rotten meat. In my experience, separate chunks (even from the same monster) have a disjoint likelihood of making you ill. I.e. whether or not you become ill seems to be determined at the time you eat a chunk, not when the chunk is generated.

4) Wearing heavy armour has a negative effect on casting spells, wearing light armour does not. Bucklers, caps, wizard hats, boots, cloaks and gloves are all considered light armour. (Heavy) shields and helmets are heavy armour. I'm not sure about gauntlets, but my guess is they're heavy, too. Armour enchantment doesn't alter the effect on spellcasting. Racial type does. Dwarven armour has an increased penalty on spellcasting (unless you're a Dwarf). Elven armour has a decreased penalty on spellcasting (more so if you're an Elf), plus all types of Elven armour are considered light.

5) Personally, no. I do need some time to get into the game if I pick it up where I left it, but I usually start playing by checking my stats, inventory, spells, piety, abilities, mutations and resistances. I tend to forget a lot between playing sessions. On the other hand, after an hour or so of playing, I'm inclined to go on autopilot, and make stupid mistakes, which is as dangerous as forgetfulness. True Crawl Zen is a delicate balance between mindfulness, zoning out, and well-timed cigarette breaks. ;)

No notable progress, because I've had very little time to play during the past couple of days. My best char was a L11 Deep Elf Conjurer, Shining Star of Vehumet, slain by Edmund on D:8. I can't really recommend Vehumet for Enchanters, although I've never tried that combination. Vehumet seems more suited for Conjurers, Elementalists, and Venom Mages. Have you considered Sif Muna?

I met a rock worm the other day.

It wasn't pleasant.

Even boots, helmets etc. that gives +1 to Arm and not Ev are considered light too? Abit confusing.. I do NOT want to wear -anything- affecting my spellcasting in a negative way.. Then again, I certainly don't want to NOT make benefit of +1 or +2 to Arm if it doesn't affect spellcasting at all. Sorry if I'm just being stupid, but I am still confused about this matter >.>

Well yeah I spend enough time to study inventory, spells, abilities etc. too when loading a char (especially the '@' and '%' and " commands are handy for this too) but my problem is that I just don't "care" so much for the character anymore, when it's been waiting on my harddrive for 3 days and I pick it back up again ;) When I'm in one session, I -AM- that character! :D ..ohwell, off to prove that point wrong for once now! This merfolk enchanter is just 20 hours old..I still love him!

You're safe with boots, hats, and caps. Helmets are heavy, so wearing one gives a penalty to spellcasting. I'm not sure about gauntlets, but I think there's a penalty; try gloves instead. If I'm not mistaken all armour types are described as either light or heavy; that's all you need to care about. Keep in mind racial exceptions, though. Anyway, spellcasters can have decent Armour Class, given enough enchant armour scrolls or some luck with artefacts.

I think I can relate to 'caring' about characters, and losing interest if you pick up an old game. To me, the key is playing one character at the time, and taking some time to get back to the character between loading and setting off. Also, and this may sound silly, in some games I like taking notes (with the ":" command) to write an in-character report of my progress. This is essentially a waste of time, but making up a background story as you go, and reading it back before you continue a saved game ("?:" command) may strengthen the bond to your character. I've been a psychotic dwarf in search of his brothers, who hollered down staircases and mistook the echoes for answers; an absent-minded milkman who fell down the basement stairs; and a hideously arrogant trollish third grade teacher explaining the health benefits of a strict corpse diet. You get the idea. ;)

Hah!  This time it was the ice beast who died and not me! 

admittedly, this character is 8th level, so it was a bit easier.

This character is doing well, 8th level Kobold Stalker of Okawaru, and he's got a named artifact short sword with +Blink, +Tele, rElec, rPois, and rF++!  I found a store for antique weapons, and it was only ~160 gp.

I've been doing this a lot lately.  I can't seem to get the ball rolling.  When it actually starts, this happens.  The last time I had a nice run going, I reloaded and I think I died in under 50 turns.

Nice..! :o Watch your step! ;)

Edit: Btw guys.. I thought, maybe from now on (just for fun ofcourse =P) we can start posting scores, dungeon level of death and class/race for those characters we find is worth mentioning, and I can post and update a "highscore" list for this thread. :) I think the highscore list ingame is pretty bad. I know you can use the -h parameter, but I'm usually too lazy for that. Also, if you write a small story about the character in the thread where you announce its death, the highscore-entry can perhaps link to that post.. I'd love that!

If I ever get any characters worth posting, I will post them.  I've had a couple, but...I really suck at this game.  :)  I get too impatient or gung ho.  I need to learn to slow down and take a little more time playing. 

My best was the one I posted earlier in the thread.

I just picked up my first rune in snake :D

Im wandering around swamp and wondering if removing the amulet of the gourmand requires me to re-attune myself to it, if i want to switch out to clarity when fighting swamp dragons, and the put it back on?

EDIT: actually Im down on the last level of swamp and dont seem to be having a trouble with conf attacks as the wiki suggested i might. The question still remains though I guess ;)

Good work, Numeron. :)

I visited the bottom level of the Swamp recently and found that it was different than in previous versions of DCSS. I didn't have to deal with confusion attacks, and packs of hydras and dragons, but instead, there were slowing gas clouds, an oklob plant with corrosion attacks, spectral dragons and zombies. The older version of the Decarying Rune level may still be in there, but it may as well have been replaced by a newer version. What did the level look like when you played it?

Don't worry about taking off your gourmand amulet. It takes some time to get re-attuned to it, but you won't starve in the meantime.

Archaalen: that's one hell of an artefact weapon you got there. Great set of resistances for Swamp and Snake. You should've used blink or teleport to flee from that yak a lot earlier though; it can gore you for a lot more damage than 13HP if it has it in for you. ;) I'm interested in the portal chambers you visited; which ones did you enter, and what were they like?

111 damage!? :o

That's just not fair.

Boris is a formidable spellcaster though. I looked him up in the Crawl Wiki and he has no less than 22 hit dice of power. From the description of the Bolt of Cold spell I figured out he can hurl one at you for 32d3 (32 to 96HP). Which is multiplied by some number if you're vulnerable to cold...

So it's not even a bug. :(

REST IN PEACE EXPLORERS OF THE DUNGEON.. THESE BRAVE ADVENTURERS SHALL BE REMEMBERED...(1) 210030 Numeron the Severer (level 18, -26/163 HPs)
(2) 4300 Karis the Slicer (level 10, -2/56 HPs)   (Player: Archaalen)

I'm no expert with html, or forum-tags.. How do I turn a word in the post into a link? Without the entire URL being visible? And I think I'll color the entries in a simple fashion, just according to how many runes they collected with YORGBP (No Runes, One Rune, Two Runes, Three Runes, Orb of Zot, All Runes+Orb, Winner!)
