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

This challenge has been changed from when it was originally posted, to be closer to the format currently used. See the reddit thread for the original challenge. Another updated version was used for a bonus week in Set 2.

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Train only Fighting, Staves, and Slings for weapon skills. Don't use any weapon types besides staves and slings, plus rocks and throwing nets, once you enter Lair, Orc, or Depths.

2. Armour

Don't use a shield. Reflection amulets are fine.

3. Magic

Don't cast any spells.

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. Lone Wolf

Never use Gozag's Bribe Branch ability.

2. The Biggest Nugget

Get the Golden 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.
