HumanSummonerAny, except for Trog

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.

Special Rule

You can try your luck at a faded altar, but getting Trog disqualifies your game unless you abandon him right away (which will probably kill you).

Cosplay conduct points

Weapons

Only train Short Blades and Fighting for weapon skills.

Skills

Always have Summonings as your highest skill, when you have any skill higher than skill level 8. (Only base skill levels apply.) Your Summonings skill has to be at level 8 or higher to qualify for this conduct.

Magic

Don't cast Aura of Abjuration.

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

Honourable Mention

Worship The Shining One, and win the game. Don't use a faded altar for this challenge.

Tip: TSO isn't bad but you lose access to a few summons, including Summon Imp. You might want to delay following him if you find an early altar.

Moustache Ride

Enter a Lair sub-branch (Swamp, Shoals, Snake, Spider, or Slime) wearing a ring of teleportation, or an artefact with the *tele property, and no items that prevent teleportation, the whole time you are in that branch. Get that branch's rune.

If you somehow manage to get 5 runes without entering one lair sub-branch, clear Zot, and still haven't found any teleportation items, you get the star anyhow when you win the game.

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 us which milestones you achieve.)
