A centaur warrior, skilled at warfare and deceit. He slew a mighty hydra, and now its deadly blood drips, still-fuming, from his arrows.

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.

Special Rule

Play a Centaur in v0.25

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Only train Fighting and Bows for weapon skills.

2. Magic

Raise your base Spellcasting skill to at least 12, before XL27.

3. Evocations

Don't use any evocables: wands, rings of flight, etc. If you get a barding of flying you can use it to fly, but you can't stop flying without taking it off.

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. Beast Slayer

Find and kill the Serpent of Hell ...and win the game.

2. Chariots Of Fire

During the orb run, enter an S-branch (Swamp, Shoals, Snake Pit, Spider Nest or Slime Pit) that you haven't entered this game, and get the rune.

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.
