Set 12 Week 5 : Norris the Nihilist

A relaxed peace-in-death cultist with a healthy tan and a soothing voice. He doesn't really care if it is you or he who dies - "both" would probably be the best option. (Norris was removed in 0.19)

Human or Deep DwarfFighter or GladiatorRu

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

Don't use ranged weapons except for stones and nets.

2. Magic

Don't train Conjurations or Necromancy.

3. Evocations

Train Hexes or Evocations to skill level 16 before XL27. Be careful not to sacrifice both to Ru if you want to try this conduct; if you manage to train one to level 16 and then sacrifice that skill, it no longer counts.

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. Ἀποκάλυψις

Any time after getting a rune, reach purple levels of Drain, and then clear the Drain status.

2. Surfing On Sine Waves

Win the game. Any time you're in a rune branch, don't wear any body armour or cast any Transmutations spells that affect your AC. You can still cast Ozocubu's Armour though.

You can enter the Abyss at any time, or get banished, but don't get the rune unless you enter without body armour.

If you enter a portal or sub-branch (Crypt) in a rune branch, you can put your armour back on for that area.

(This was changed from "don't wear body armour at any time," which was overly hard.)

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.
