Set 14 Week 1 : Robin of the Strong Arm

A mountain hobgoblin, recently come in search of the legendary Orb. Not foolhardy or reckless enough to delve into the depths of the Dungeon alone, Robin has built a small army of minions. Potential competitors will quickly find a stream of screaming goblins flying toward 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.

Special Rule

You can play as a Delver in the delpal experimental branch. Games played online in experimental branches aren't added to your CAO scoring page.

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Don't choose an axe as your starting weapon; you can still switch to using axes once the game has started. Don't use ranged weapons except stones and throwing nets.

2. Armour

Only wear armour with an ER of 5 or lower. (Acid dragon scales are allowed, even though they don't qualify as "light armour.")

3. Allies

Have three god-given allied Orc Warlords (Beogh), or Bone Dragons and/or Profane Servitors (Yredelemnul), on screen at the same time. Take a screenshot, or annotate your game by pressing : .

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. Hemogoblin

Don't train any weapon skill except for Fighting past base skill level 6. Reach skill level 27 in Fighting.

Bonuses from cross-training don't count to your base skill level, and so are fine, but be aware that setting skill targets takes cross-training into account. (In other words setting the right skill target might be hard, sorry.)

2. Band of Brothers

Win the game with at least 12 allies in LOS. If the exit out of the dungeon doesn't have enough room, it's fine if some allies are only nearby and not visible.

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.
