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

Weapons

Don't use any weapons in the Bows, Crossbows, or Slings categories.

Allies

Don't use any Necromancy or Summonings spells that give you allies, and don't use any evocables that give allies other than wands and phials of floods.

Branch

Get a rune before entering the Orcish Mines.

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

Yer A Wizard, Harry!

Play as a Warper; always have Translocations as your highest skill, when you have any skill higher than skill level 8. (Only base skill levels apply.)

You must get a rune to earn this star, but the limitation persists for the entire game.

Planning For Retirement

Don't buy anything from shops.

The assistance rc file doesn't have anything to help with this challenge, but you can turn off autopickup of gold in the \ menu. (This ruins the theme of the challenge but oh well!)

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.)
