OctopodeChaos KnightXom and Jiyva

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).

Special Rule

You are allowed to switch gods from Xom to Jiyva at any point. You aren't allowed to leave Xom otherwise, and can't leave Jiyva once you've switched.

While you might be tempted to ditch Xom as soon as possible, bear in mind that following Jiyva early will cause you to miss out on a lot of items.

Also, killing The Royal Jelly will remove all altars to Jiyva, in case you were unaware.

Cosplay conduct points

Weapons

Don't train ranged attacks, and don't choose Unarmed for your starting weapon. (You can still train Unarmed Combat though.)

Magic

Don't cast any Conjurations spells.

Religion

Convert to Jiyva and reach 6* piety with them, and mollify Xom.

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

Eight Arms To Hold You

Have 5 enemies constricted at once. Take a screenshot or make a note with : !cosplay.

Mutation Nation

Get maximum magical contamination at some point, and win the game.

Upon getting maximum Contam, you get the message "You are engulfed in a nimbus of crackling magics!" You'll reach dark red Contam before you're at this point.

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 me which milestones you achieve.)
