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

If worshipping Ru, do not sacrifice the Translocations skill.

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Only train Unarmed Combat and Fighting for weapon skills.

2. Magic

Train Translocations to skill level 16 by XL27.

3. Transformation

Don't intentionally change your form at all, including casting form-changing transmutation spells (not even Blade Hands or Beastly Appendage), drinking lignification potions, and zapping wands of polymorph at yourself.

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. Hop To It

Enter the Temple in ((temple floor+1) * 100) turns, e.g. 500 turns if the Temple is on D:4, 600 if it's on D:5, etc. (temple floor * 200) turns. By default the counter in the status area is in time and not turns; press E or % to see your current turn count.

This challenge has been made slightly easier since it was first posted. The assistance file has not been updated.

2. King Ribbert Barachian

Get a rune without walking in that rune's branch, starting from when you reach the bottom floor of the branch (i.e. you can move normally until you reach the bottom floor). You can hop, blink, teleport, power-leap, etc., just don't take any steps. Using stairs is allowed, and if you go back up a floor from the bottom, you can take one or two steps to get back to the stairs down if the floor is clear. The restriction is lifted once you get the rune.

The Abyss and Pandemonium are not eligible branches for this challenge.

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.

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