Challenge Idea: Crawling Against the Grain

Crawl against the grain is a challenge to fight your nature. You must play a species with extreme apts and do exactly what that race isn't supposed to do.

Rules:
  • Play as a Og, Tr, Ce, Ha, HE, DE, DD, Sp, Te or Vp.
  • You may only train skills with an Apt. of -3 or lower OR a * [lowest apt in the game for that skill.]
  • If all of these skills hit 27, you may then skill normally.
  • You must also start with a background that exhibits primarily or only these skills you are bad at or a Wanderer.
    Example: a Spriggan may train Fighting, UC, M&F, Polearms, Staves, Armour, Shields, and/or Conjurations. All other skills are locked. Suitable backgrounds would be Berserker, Fighter or Conjurer..
    The hardest race for this is Centaurs; as they can only train Armour, Dodging, Stealth, Shields and Spellcasting.

Idea came out of repeated deaths trying to be a OgIE and wondering if it was possible to survive with -3 Apt or lower in your primary killdudes skill (or all your skills). I want to see someone pull it off; as I get the feeling most the successful bizarrely bad combo accents OgAs, for example; pulled it off by abandoning the background to play to the race. (Joining Trog at first availability and switching to maces in that case.)
I'm beginning to feel like a Cat God! Felid streaks: {FeVM^Sif Muna, FeWn^Dithmenos, FeAr^Pakellas}, {FeEE^Ashenzari, FeEn^Gozag, FeNe^Sif Muna, FeAE^Vehumet...(ongoing)}

You cannot train dodging, and cannot wear normal armour. Your defences will be terrible.
