I had never before been able to ascend with a knight—and it wasn't fer' lack a' tryin'.  :p ;)

	I don't know what it is—everything just seems to go wrong for a knight.  This one was no exception.  
A gelatinous cube ate a wraith corpse here—I couldn't get a tinning kit (This "guy" got to 18/** strength, 
without one.  (!)) (or a spellbook of identify, for that matter) there. . . .  A marilith dissolved my 
fireproof boots of speed; I had to wish for another.

	And what is this deal with drawbridges—this was the second of three knights to be "killed" by a drawbridge.  
(! (!)) The first one, a giant threw a boulder, and I was crushed by a big piece a' metal.  This guy, was 
blown apart by shrapnel (somebody zapped a wand of striking. . . .).

	FORTUNATELY, my guy was wearing an amulet of life saving.  This was SUCH a SD [silly death]—that I didn't 
even think much of it, and kept going.  Seriously, these drawbridges are SOO dangerous—just zap a wand of striking, 
then read a scroll of earth, and push boulders into the moat.  It's not worth the risk/work a' dealin' with.  
(. . . .)

	This one was/is new:

You are caught in the death field!

I got my tinning kit, mixed up with a wand of death.  Quickly, I typed "y" (confirm) and . . . BOOM!  –All hail 
magic resistance, eh?

:) ;) 

	Questions I know the answer to I don't need to ask, right?  After talking to King Arthur, he 
started moving around.  I sacked the chest for a potion of gain level (level 30 :) !:)! ), and then sat on 
his throne. . . .

	I honestly didn't know what would happen, if I did that.

:) ;)

	This one was also new: On the way up, some demon summoned yeenoghu.  I don't know why he's still hangin' 
around—his worshiping race (gnomes) is extinct, 'n stuff.  (I guess you don't have to worry about this—when you're 
a god, or something. . . .)

	He kept doing the "hit and move [teleport]" bit on a level where I couldn't (baalzebub's fortress).  
So, I–for the very first time–dropped the Amulet of Yendor—so I could teleport up one level, then bash 'im from 
the up staircase (nowhere for him to run).  As I said, this was the very first time, I ever voluntarily relinquished 
the amulet.  ;)

	This was also the first time I was ever able to walk over the elemental planes.  (I first located the 
[magic] portal—by reading a scroll of gold detection, whilst confused. . . .)  With levitation (NOT water walking 
boots (!!)), this is a piece of cake.  :) :) The elemental plane of water can be (read: IS :) ;) ) very annoying 
without doing this.

:) ;)

	Let's see . . . what other "firsts" did I have. . . .

	-First use "merger"—#adjust an item to itself, merges ALL like objects to that slot.  Nifty. :) :)
	-First made multiple holy waters, by dipping multiple uncursed waters into a holy water.  One can make 
~infinite holy waters, this way, BTW. . . .
	-Took out Death in ONE SHOT—blessed +7 Frost Brand, expert long sword [ability], 18/** strength, and 
a +4 ring of increase damage.  Yeah! –Take that! –That's what I'm talkin' about.

:) ;)
