Fortnightly Conduct Run #2 - Octopode^Uskayaw

Last Challenge(Troll caster) didn't have too many participants, but that was most likely due to it being too hard/boring. I myself had a stab at it but died in lair branches. So the next fortnightly conduct will be something slightly easier and, hopefully, more fun.

TARGET: Octopode of Uskayaw
CONDITIONS:
- Only worship Uskayaw throughout the game
- Worship Uskayaw as soon as you see the altar

Octopodes prefer 1v1 situations, at all times, and tend to lure enemies a lot. Which should prove to be an interesting as Uskayaw is a god that prefers crowd fighting and doesn't have much use in 1v1 situations.(At least until you have a high enough invocations)

RECOMMENDED BUILDS:
OpFi = Shield helps out with an Octopode's poor defense in the early game, especially if you intend to use melee.
OpIE = IE is a very strong background with Conjurations and summons(So you don't have to be in melee range much) and Ozo armour gives some much needed AC.

POINTS:
+10 points for completing Lair and Orc and also completing Dungeon to 15.
+20 points for getting a rune,
+30 points for 3-runes
+50 points for 15-runes(12 runes acceptable if lair/orc skipped)
+70 points for doing a Ziggurat to 27

POINT MULTIPLIERS:
x3 if Lair and Orc skipped
x2 if game is won WITHOUT A SHIELD

BONUS CONDUCTS:
+100 points for using NO SPELLS

Re: Fortnightly Conduct Run #2 - Octopode^Uskayaw

I splattered more octopi this challenge than Redwings fans during the 1997 Stanley Cup playoffs.

I'm just getting back into DCSS after a hiatus of several years. I used to participate in the weekly challenges on reddit, so it was fun to see this challenge posted. That said, I did predictably terrible.

My top octopede was Tolo the Unseen, a level 12 Octopede Assassin who was manged by an unseen horror on level 11 of the dungeon. Tolo cleared the Orcish Mines and found the Lair but did not clear it. I am not looking forward to finding Tolo's ghost someday.

According to the scoring rubric, I did not achieve any points (unless the +100 for no spells counts for dismal failures, in which case I get 100). :lol:

Thanks for the challenge! I look forward to future challenges.

Re: Fortnightly Conduct Run #2 - Octopode^Uskayaw

I didn't have much luck, but certainly had lots of fun! I had a few runs that got going as an OpFi, usually with axes, but few where i was even able to find an altar, let alone lair or orc! Most of my time as an Ice mage were short lived and i had some truly terrible luck! Including a run where i fell right on top of Natasha. -_-

Nevertheless, i had a great time, please continue to post more challenges!

Re: Fortnightly Conduct Run #2 - Octopode^Uskayaw

Same for me - I tried a few octopodes, but none of them had very long legs, even when I dropped more and more of the bonus-points conditions. Nothing worth posting here.
