Human Gladiator with quarterstaff, or Hunter with slingGozag

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 do anything to lose your religion, and don't use faded altars (except for challenges when you can follow any god).

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


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.


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


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

Lone Wolf

Never use Gozag's Bribe Branch ability.

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.

The main way to score points. +5 points each, and can be done in any order. (You don't need to tell me which milestones you achieve.)
