Kobold Assassin/Brigand, Abyssal Knight, or WarperDithmenos, Lugonu, Uskayaw, or The Wu Jian Council

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

You can switch gods mid-game, between the available options.

In trunk, Kobolds have reduced line-of-sight (LOS): "You are completely attuned to the shadows."

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Train only Fighting, Short Blades, and Throwing as weapon skills. From D:8 onwards, only use weapons of these types.

2. Armour

Don't wear any body armour with an Encumbrance Rating higher than 10, with the exception of shadow dragon scales.

3. Magic

Only cast magic that has Hexes or Translocation schools, and doesn't have Conjurations or Summoning schools. (So Portal Projectile is allowed but Dazzling Spray/Flash isn't.)

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. Poise and Poison

Get a rune with 250 turns of entering the floor with that rune, other than the Abyssal rune. Tell me which rune it is, if you get this. Slime is by far the easiest place to do this but any rune counts.

2. Simple Tastes

Win the game as an Assassin/Brigand.

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.
