Set 10 Week 3 : Dissolution, High Priest of Jiyva

The Pits of Slime used to be a thriving civilization, and Dissolution was the prophet of their god. When the city was overtaken by its current residents, only Dissolution survived, for they alone turned faithfully to the Slime God. Dissolution became a tremendous mass of acidic ooze, yet retained their intelligence. They are filled with hatred for anything that can hold a form.

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 must be following Jiyva before you enter The Depths, Pandemonium, or Hell. You can worship any god or gods, or even no god, beforehand, and can switch gods as much as you want (ignore all the usual restrictions on following a god); however once you are following Jiyva, you can't switch from them, and can only abandon them for the bonus challenge that requires you to do so.

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Only train Unarmed Combat and Fighting for weapon skills.

2. Religion

Worship Jiyva before entering the Vaults, Elf, or intentionally going to the Abyss.

3. Magic

Don't cast Statue Form or Dragon Form.

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. What Becomes Of The Body?

Worship Ru and get to 6* piety before worshipping Jiyva. Don't sacrifice love or you will not be able to join Jiyva. Getting to 6* with Jiyva earns the star.

2. u jelly?

At any point after reaching 6* piety with Jiyva, abandon them, kill The Royal Jelly, and then rejoin Jiyva. Normally killing TRJ will cause Jiyva to stop existing, but being under wrath stops this from happening, so you have to kill TRJ before Jiyva's wrath ends.

TRJ must be at full health when you abandon Jiyva.

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.
