Set 9 Week 3 : Nergalle the Soulbinder

A withered sorceress, exceptionally cruel even by orc standards. The living fear her; the dead obey her every command. She has a soft spot for the latter.

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

Only train Short Blades, Staves, and Fighting for weapon skills.

2. Armour

Only wear light body armour (ER of 5 or lower). Auxiliary armour such as hats, cloaks, etc., is all allowed.

3. Religion

Don't use weapons of holy wrath, scrolls of holy word, or the unrand "Undeadhunter."

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. The Ghost List

Only use Necromancy magic spells, and win the game. Multi-school spells are allowed as long as one of the schools is Necromancy. The spells Recall and Apportation are also allowed.

2. Mine Your Own Business

Enter the Orcish Mines before reaching XL10. You still must be following Kiku before entering Orc.

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.

The main way to score points. +5 points each, and can be done in any order.
