Finally a Knight!

After playing Knights named Sparhawk and Bedivere (Silly knikit!) it's one
named Chris (Because of my PDA) that ascends.

This Knight rode horses for the whole early game, getting three magic lamps
by minetown, (two blessed) and GDSM in the minetown altar room. Since he
started with 18(01) strength he rode through sokoban. I've lost several
horses due to starvation while doing Sokoban. The Bigroom was mobbed so I
dug down with my /oDigging a few steps from the upstair and eventually
whittled the crowd down after coming back up. An early cloak of
Displacement made this feasable. He froze his way across medusa, and took
on the castle at level 12 with a decent set up and a boulder fort and a
/oStriking It took two wishes to get my late game mount (a Ki-Rin) who
lasted until Rodney's zoo where a black dragon blasted it and my saddle out
from under me. I whipped out a /oTaming and used my last magic lamp to get
a new saddle. I rode the dragon till rodney offed it. The sanctum wasn't
hard, none of moloch's preists felt lonely, so no insects. I had not
managed to pick up a single !oGL, so my !oUHW went to waste... I slogged
up, getting thrown back a few times... the mysterious force must have sensed
my lack of Levitation, because it really kicked in around Juby's swamp. I
walked/jumped across no less than five times!

On the way back up I killed a quantum mechanic and got lucky twice... The
cat was alive, and survived being poly'ed five times until I had a
Jabberwock to saddle. Schrodinger's Cat had to be resurrected three times
before dying in a crowd on Fire. Fortunately the portal was walking
distance around a lovely lava lake from his final resting place. Water was
a bore (wearing a "oMB in case of ; ) On Astral I landed on the right side
(Famine) and headed that way after killing one arch lich and a few summoned
nastys. I used one of my charges on my cursed /oD (Orcus') to off the rider
and then it blew up om the next zap. (ouch) Lugh's high priest had two bits
for an ale, so I whistled in my guardian angel (who had been blocking Famine
from entering the antechamber) and offered the amulet.

I found riding horses is fantastic in the early game. Especially when
you can hit the warhorse w/ Speed Monster.
