A small and twisted goblin, wearing some ugly blue rags. She claims dominion over this level of the dungeon; the punishment for trespassing is death.
|Halfling||Artificer||Gozag, Uskayaw (not in 0.18), or Pakellas (0.18 only)|
The Species, Background, and God choices are all mandatory. You must be worshipping one of the gods listed above before entering Lair, Orc, or Depths, unless this isn't possible in which case you must worship them as soon as you can. Don't use faded altars (except in challenges where you can choose any god), and don't do anything to lose your religion unless otherwise specified.
You can play this challenge in version 0.18, available on all official servers (I think), or offline by downloading a release from http://crawl.develz.org/release/0.18/. See the reddit thread for a list of a few differences in 0.18 that I think you should be aware of.
If you are compiling 0.18 for Linux, you'll need to also apply this commit to make it work with modern GCC, which is probably easiest if you get the source with git -- ask for help if you're having trouble.
Use only short blades, maces & flails, and throwing weapons (including blowguns). Untrained UC is also allowed.
Don't cast any spells that are level 4 or higher.
Train evocations to at least skill level 16.
Conducts are worth +5 points each, to a maximum of half your score from milestones, rounded down. (So if you achieve 4 milestones (20 points) you can earn up to 10 points from conduct bonuses.) Please indicate which conducts you qualify for when you post your morgue. Small mistakes in following conducts will usually be forgiven.
From the time you enter your first rune branch (except the Abyss) until you get a rune (except the Abyssal rune), don't use any weapons except a club, including throwing weapons. The rune you get doesn't have to match the first rune branch you enter, but you have to stay with a club even if you back out of a branch. Unlike last week, this challenge is complete once you get a rune, and you can throw your club in the lava and go back to using a real weapon.
If you enter a timed portal (e.g. Ice Cave), you can switch back to other weapons while in this portal. If you worship Gozag, you can't bribe the branch you get the rune from, or else it doesn't fulfill this conduct.
To be clear, you can still enchant and brand your club with scrolls.
Get all 15 runes. Note that in 0.18, Tomb is considerably easier, since the one-way stairs hadn't been implemented yet.
Bonus challenges are worth one star each, similar to banners in Crawl tournaments. Please indicate challenges that you qualify for. Small mistakes will usually be forgiven.
The main way to score points. +5 points each, and can be done in any order.
