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

Train Unarmed Combat and Fighting for weapon skills only. If you choose a background that has a choice of melee weapon, pick "unarmed." If you start with other weapon skills, don't train them past their starting levels.

2. Magic

Train any magic skill (including spellcasting) to 18 before XL27.

3. Branch

Collect three runes before entering the Depths.

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. Chasing the Dragon

Bring a Hell Lord into the vestibule of Hell, and kill them there.

2. Hell Of A Time

Win without entering either S-branch. (Swamp, Shoals, Snake Pit, Spider's Nest.)

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.
