Cosplay Challenge, now in Set 3! Play chars based on uniques

Hi, I'm kitchen_ace and I post on https://www.reddit.com/r/dcss a bunch. I've been running a weekly challenge thread where the goal is to play like uniques. The basic goal is usually pretty casual and open, with a bunch of optional conducts that are more restrictive and difficult. It's not got a lot of participation but I'm enjoying making up silly challenges for myself and playing them so I'm probably going to keep doing it for a while.

I figured I should start posting here too. This week is Snorg. If anyone here wants to try other weeks they can do that too though.

1 - JOSEPH - https://www.reddit.com/r/dcss/comments/8uumii/
2 - SONJA - https://www.reddit.com/r/dcss/comments/8wmaz2/
3 - AZRAEL - https://www.reddit.com/r/dcss/comments/8yr8z4/

Week #4 - Snorg the Insatiable https://www.reddit.com/r/dcss/comments/90mq77/

Species: Troll
Background: Berserker
God: Trog
Special Conduct: Since you have to follow Trog, using magic is not allowed.
Tip: Put 2-3 points into INT just so you don't get brainless if INT-draining monsters are around. You might also want to carry around brilliance potions.


Tiers: The main goal. You must complete tiers in order. Points are not cumulative.
  • Tier 1 - 20 points: Get a rune.
  • Tier 2 - 30 points: Find the entrance to Zot.
  • Tier 3 - 50 points: Win the game.
+5 points for participating.

Cosplay conduct points: Optional. +5 points each, max +5 points per tier reached.
  • Weapons: Don't wield anything (even non-weapons).
  • Armour: Don't wear dragon scales. This means you're limited to robes, animal skins, and troll leather armours for body armour.
  • Evocations: Don't train evocations at all.

Bonus challenges: Optional. Each worth one star, similar to banners in Crawl tournaments. You must win the game to earn stars.
  • Wutz dat sey?: Don't read any scrolls except identification and remove curse. As exceptions, you can read enchant weapon/armour scrolls if they are for an item that a trove needs, as long as you don't use that item. You can also acquire food. Finally, you can read-id scrolls on empty floors as long as you cancel any other effect they might have.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Enter Zot within 50,000 turns. Once you enter Zot it doesn't matter how long you take, and you can back out immediately to do other parts of the game if you want.

You have one week or until I post the next challenge, whichever is longer, to post morgues. Good luck!

Resumed posting these on /r/dcss now that the tournament is over. But I think I'm going to stop updating here until further request.

I've started running these in 5-game sets. Set 3 has just started, making it a great time to join. Automatic tracking of online games is coming "soon".

Games will not run during the 0.23 tournament.
