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 play this challenge in version 0.19, which is available online on servers except CKO. Offline players can download it from

Short summary of relevant differences: High Elves exist, Ozo's Armour didn't break on moving, wands of Haste/Heal Wounds/Teleport, new monsters spawn infrequently, no spell library, more inventory management in general, old trap system.
