I'm playing LIVAN, and at school, so I can't actually remember where I am, Gloomy Cave... 8? Or 7? I just finished walking past a room full of spellcasters, and i'm below them, about to start. The key items I have... Are...

The named sword that gives Invisibility, Sal Furta? +3
A meteoroic steel dagger + 9
Shirt of the Jaguar +6, or however it's spelled. The one you get from the vault.
Boots of Strength +2
Iron Gauntlets of Dexterity +1
Belt of Levitation
Helmet of Briliance +2

Those are my main items, really... Plenty of teleport wands/scrolls.

I actually found 2 AoLS, due to wishing, but I used one with Enner, and the other was lost due to a skeleton on the Zombie level. I will post a screenshot the second I get home. Any advice/tips? I feel REALLY confident about this game, and really want to win, even with the constant crashing.

I think slob is right, unfortunately. Post a screenshot of your stats, that may give us a better idea. As for equipment, the dagger and short sword aren't very great weapons but at this point it would be too late to switch to something else. Your belt and armor are fine, but you need to change your gauntlet material. The dexterity +1 boost is negated by the heavy iron. If I were you I would stick around in the top levels. Go through each level until the spawning of monsters on that level goes to essentially zero (except the zombie level of course). And if possible enchant all of your equipment to at least +5. You will also need some electricity resistance - cloak?

How you got so far without Livan crashing is a miracle on its own.

I haven't. It crashes, and my auto-save interval is like 13, because when it's set at one, and you crash, it's possible the square you are on, and the square you tried to step on are crashing you. But 13 turns away, high enough chance that you won't be on that step.

I still haven't posted a screenshot, but I died.
It seems that I forgot to put my poison into cans, and died. Had over like 7 bottles, and something- killed me by breaking them. I only later found out it was the experiment golem.

yeah ZQ-29 is deadly if you have low hp, shitty armour and low agility. Did it kill you with one shot or did you miss an opportunity to teleport away? The nice thing about ZQ-29 is it doesn;t heal (like Xinroch).

Never ran into it before, let alone knew that it existed. So when it said something is hitting me, thought it was some crappy invisible thing, so I tried to attack it back. I actually got to attack it for like 10 turns, and it took awhile to pound my face in. Odd thing was, that I had ESP infravision and still couldn't see it..

-edit-
Ah, was told why I couldn't see it. I feel dumb. D=;
