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

Magic

Don't cast any conjurations spells. "Conjurations-like" spells such as poisonous vapours, ignition, etc. are fine.

Armour

Don't use a shield. Amulets of reflection are allowed.

Branch

Collect 5 runes.

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

Who Let the Dogs Out?

Have a canine of each type in the game visible in LOS at the same. Summons count, but undead don't. Make a note with : !cosplay, or take a screenshot if you prefer. If you use the assistance file, the screen will flash on jackals, raiju, and doom hounds (and now hell hounds) coming into view, but not the others as they are common enough that it would be annoying IMO. (Jackals are actually quite rare after the first few floors of the Dungeon.)

Full list of doggos: Jackal, Hound, Wolf, Warg, Hell Hound, Raiju, Doom Hound.

I'm going to be pretty lenient about missing a canine or two, since it's pretty clear that monster appearance is too unpredictable. Hell Hounds, Raiju, and Doom Hounds are always going to be required though, and you should try to get a Jackal unless the RNG really screws you over.

Gnoll and Void

Get the Abyssal rune from Abyss:5, before entering the Depths. The assistance file will flash the screen on finding the Depths entrance; you should place an exclusion on it if you want more of a reminder/safeguard.

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.

The main way to score points. +5 points each, and can be done in any order. (You don't need to tell us which milestones you achieve.)
