Set 6 Week 1 : Dispater, Lord of the Iron City

Greatest of the Lords of Hell, Dispater was born when first an iron sword drank mortal blood. They despise mortal vanities, the pursuit of "reason" and "beauty" — the only art they enjoy is the art of war.

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).

Cosplay conduct points


Train only Staves and Fighting for weapon skills.


Don't learn or cast any Ice, Air, or Poison magic.


Reach skill level 16 in Invocations before XL27.

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

Hard as Hell

Don't train Dodging or Shields at all, and win the game.

The Scenic Route

Enter the Vestibule of Hell before entering Lair. Entering Lair earns the star.

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.


  • 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 me which milestones you achieve.)
