Set 4 Week 2 : Bai Suzhen, Madam White Snake

A weary draconian with foreign and watery scales. She has come to the Dungeon in hopes of resurrecting her mortal husband; a noble cause, for a being once known for quarrelling with saints and flooding unfortunate temples. If pressed to her limits, she will reveal her true form, the mere sight of which struck her husband dead. Adventurers may wish they were so lucky!

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.

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Train only Fighting, Staves, Unarmed Combat, and Throwing for weapon skills.

2. Magic

Don't learn or cast any necromancy spells.

3. Evocations

Have three different rechargeable evocables in your inventory. (Possible items: phial of floods, lightning rod, and the Horn of Geryon.)

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.

Bonus challenges

1. Tempestuous

Reach skill level 27 in invocations, before you reach XL27. (Sorry agentoutlier! I'm moving away from these for the future but there will still be a couple once in a while.)

2. The Dragon Experience

Be in dragon form from the time you enter Zot onward, and win the game. You don't have to be in dragon form for resting/auto-travel/running away/etc.

If you collect at least 4 runes and still don't have access to dragon form, you can enter Zot anyhow. In this case you must fight unarmed with no shield, but you can use other form-changing transmutation spells. If you find a book with dragon form while in Zot, you must switch to using it. Please don't try to game this exception by intentionally avoiding spellbooks, etc.

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.
