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 weapons other than stones, nets, and needles/darts.

2. Defence

Don't train any of Fighting, Armour, Dodging, or Shields past skill level 11.

3. Magic

Have three necromancy spells that are not in your starting spellbook learned, at 10% failure or lower.

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. Tonight You Look Like A Spider

Win the game without using any wands. You can disable auto-pickup of them with \. All other evocables are allowed.

2. Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet

Train Stealth to level 27 before reaching XL27.

Here are the minimum skill levels in Stealth you should have so that, by having stealth at 100% training, you can still master it before XL27. (Slightly conservative values.)

  XL   Stealth

  22    1.7
  23   13.1
  24   17.9
  25   21.4
  26   24.4

Potions of experience will affect these numbers, generally not in your favour: they give you much more level experience than skill experience.

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.
