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 are allowed to follow a god from a faded altar (but are not required to).

You are encouraged to play the two-state-vampire branch, available on CKO and CPO, or offline if you compile it yourself. More information at https://crawl.develz.org/tavern/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26287. If you do, please leave feedback about what you thought about the changes, either in that tavern thread or the CCC reddit thread.

The two-state-vampire branch is likely to undergo changes in during the week. Games played in experimental branches do not count on your CAO scoring page.

Cosplay conduct points

Armour

Don't use a shield. Amulets of reflection are fine.

Attributes

Have at least 10 base Strength and 14 base intelligence. Skalds automatically qualify for this conduct.

Branch

Find the entrance to the Tomb.

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

Batdance

Get a rune, while being in bat form the entire time you are in that rune branch, except if you need to end your transformation to rest or drink blood. In case something finds you while you are resting, you are not allowed to affect other creatures except with scrolls or god abilities, when not in bat form.

The abyssal and Pandemonium runes are not eligible for this challenge. The slimy rune isn't either, if you are following Jiyva.

Curse Of The Golden Vampire

Get the figurine of a ziggurat from the Tomb, and win the game. You can use it any time after collecting it (but do not have to).

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.

Milestones

  • Reach XL3.
  • Enter Lair, Orc, or Depths.
  • Reach the bottom of D, Lair, or Orc.
  • Collect your first rune.
  • Find the entrance to Zot. (Just using magic mapping doesn't count.)
  • Collect your third rune.
  • Win the game.

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