Set 14 Week 2 : The Royal Jelly

A particularly rich and golden gelatinous thing. Smaller jellies swim and pulse just below its surface, ready to burst forth at the slightest touch.

Centaur or PalentongaMonkAny, optionally switching to Jiyva

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 delay worshipping a god as long as you want. You can switch to Jiyva at any point. Once following Jiyva, you can't abandon your religion or switch to other gods.

I was hoping to get this challenge in before Palentongas got merged, but that didn't happen. Playing with them is completely untested, but should probably be fine?

Cosplay conduct points

1. Weapons

Only fight unarmed, without any form-changing transmutation spells. This also prohibits you from using any ranged weapons, or throwing anything.

2. Branch

Get the Slimy rune before entering Zot.

3. Religion

Worship Jiyva. This doesn't need to be your first god, but once following Jiyva, you can't abandon your religion or switch to other gods.

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. Gettin' Jiggly wit It

Worship Jiyva using the altar on Slime:5. Don't enter any other rune branches beforehand.

2. Acid Again

Use Jiyva's Slimify ability at least 100 times.

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.
