Set 6 Week 4 : Ereshkigal, Queen of Tartarus

Greatest and most inexorable of the Lords of Hell, Ereshkigal was born when first a mortal breathed her last. Noiselessly she laughs at lives cut short and loved ones separated by untimely death, enwreathed in the silence of the grave.

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.

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Don't use any ranged/throwing weapons except nets.

2. Armour

Don't train armour at all.

3. Evasion

Train dodging to skill level 21 by 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

1. Out Of Your Element

Don't learn and Fire, Ice, Air, Earth, or Poison spells, except for Ensorcelled Hibernation. You must win the game to earn this star.

2. Bat Out Of Hell

Kill Geryon. You must be in bat form as long as you're in the Vestibule of Hell. (You will likely need lots of wands or other evocables.)

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.
