Make up some new Challenges

They don't necessarily have to be tough or silly, just come up with anything that sounds interesting to you. Bonus points if it's actually achievable in .18 or .19, e.g., it may have once been possible to Win By Bread Alone, but isn't now.


Everyone's #1 Fan

Win after successfully using every celebrity-named spell or item that has appeared in your game. (For instance, Leda's spell, Gell's, Olgreb's staff, etc.)

Re: Make up some new Challenges

TOO EASY

You just need to stash a deck or two on every upstaircase that you will use on the orb run. Throw away gear after gear as you go up, then on the last one, you'll quickly take off your armour and weapons while the pandemonium lords are bashing you...

Oh.

Hope you invested in Evasion?

Every penny counts!

Donate exactly 1 cent to the devs for each gold you have at the end of the game(ending the game with 0 gold disqualifies you from this challenge).

- Amass the greatest possible number of chunks of flesh in your inventory at once.
- Get the greatest possible number of skill level increases once at the same time in a single skill (e.g. "your Fighting skill has increased by 6 levels...").
If I play online, I do so under the screenname Marenglen.

My best attempt:
  Code:
    30 | D:14     | Killed a deep elf mage
    30 | D:14     | Reached skill level 8 in Stealth
    30 | D:14     | Reached XP level 2. HP: 20/24 MP: 0/2
    30 | D:14     | Reached XP level 3. HP: 25/29 MP: 0/3
    30 | D:14     | Reached XP level 4. HP: 30/35 MP: 0/4
    30 | D:14     | Reached XP level 5. HP: 35/41 MP: 0/5
    30 | D:14     | Reached XP level 6. HP: 40/47 MP: 0/6
    30 | D:14     | Reached XP level 7. HP: 45/52 MP: 0/7

I think the trick to this one is to be a SpBe with 0 stealth. Find some early OoD or unique, turn on your +5 stealth apt, and zerk it to death.

Actually I had a lot of experience potion effects from Xom, but I thought only kills count.

Re: Make up some new Challenges

Win a monk of any race with -2 unarmed aptitude. You must be true to the playstyle and actually use unarmed as the vast majority of your damage (you can train backup support in magic or ranged combat, but no weapons and you have to use unarmed for most things). Transmutations are welcome.

This limits your race choices to DE, HE, Mu, Sp, and Ha. HE/Ha are the least crippling in my opinion, although you could try abusing spriggan speed to escape whenever things go bad. Remember though, you have to actually kill most things in melee...Honor code, and all that. Enjoy the -30% hp if you do go spriggan :)

For the record I've spent a fair amount of time trying to get a spriggan and DE going, and while I had some success (I think I got 1-2 runes with a spriggan), I have yet to complete this challenge myself. DEMo (played as a monk) may be one of the worst starts in the entire game, and I'm even counting mummies here.

Re: Make up some new Challenges

The Superstitious

You must flee the dungeon if you get any bad luck.
  • It is bad luck to know "13". (do not fully explore D:13 or Pan:13.)
  • It is bad luck to harm a "7". (this means that you may not harm trees.)
  • It is bad luck if you do not wander a 7 three times. (On any "7" floor such as D:7 or L:7, clear the level map 3 times and re-explore it fully.)
  • It is bad luck to turn left in labyrinth. (always turn "right" at a fork relative to the direction you came from.)
  • It is bad luck if Natasha walks behind you.
  • It is bad luck to use mirrors. (phantom mirror, injury mirror, etc)
  • It is bad luck to rest on tiles that look like ladders. (console players get a free pass on this one.)
