Set 16 Week 5 : Louise the Corrupted

A mighty sorceress, clad from head to toe in heavy armour. Once an adventurer looking for the fabled Orb of Zot, she was cast into the Abyss and got hopelessly lost there. Toyed with by some greater power, she was stuck on the hostile plane for nearly a decade. When she finally emerged from the Abyss, Louise had become powerful indeed, but had also gone fully insane. She now wanders the halls of the dungeon, seeking other adventurers to share her fate.

HumanAbyssal Knight (unless you attempt the first Bonus Challenge)Lugonu

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

Use one-handed and thrown weapons only. This includes missile weapons, so you can use a sling or a hand crossbow, but not a shortbow or an arbalest, for example.

2. Magic

Train Conjurations and an elemental school (including poison) to level 12, before you get a 3rd rune.

3. Corruption

Corrupt the Ecumenical Temple, while holding a +9 distortion weapon.

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. Descent Into Madness

Instead of Abyssal Knight, choose either Fighter or Warper as your background. Worship any god except Lugonu, or no god if you wish. Any time after getting your first rune, but before entering Zot, enter the Abyss and worship Lugonu. Note that you must worship Lugonu to qualify for tier 2, in case you attempt this challenge and don't win. You also must enter the Abyss to worship Lugonu, even if Lugonu altars are present elsewhere.

2. Slime Scrubber

Send The Royal Jelly to the Abyss. You can do this with Lugonu's Banish ability with a high enough Invocation skill and a scroll of vulnerability, or you can just poke it with a distortion weapon until it gets sent there.

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.
