Set 11 Week 1 : Arachne the Weaver

Once a talented human weaver, Arachne was cursed by being transformed into her present form: half-human, half-spider. Her sympathies now lie with the inhuman residents of her new home, and she's eager to dispose of any who would threaten them.

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 Staves, Unarmed Combat, Throwing, and Fighting for weapon skills.

2. Species

Play as an Octopode.

3. Branch

Collect 3 runes before entering the Depths.

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. Does Whatever A Spider Can

Get a rune from a rune branch while being in Spider Form for the entire branch. All of Vaults counts as one branch. Pan and the Abyss aren't eligible for this challenge. As a backup, if you manage to get 5 runes and clear Zot without finding Spider Form, and win the game, you earn the star.

2. Her Lips Were Wet With Venom

Always have Poison Magic as your highest skill, when you have any skill higher than skill level 8, and 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.
