    I just want to chime in and say that I love this idea. Basically everything about it! There's no way I can participate right now. I've still only won with wizard/archer, my fastest win was 20 hours, I play maybe 20 hours per month....there's no way. But I definitely might post like "hey I got the win from the weekly contest 6 month ago YAVP" some time. These look like really enjoyable, clever, challenging-but-not-impossible variants of the game. Really good thinking!

    Thanks! Unfortunately, it seems like almost no one has the time for or interest in these challenges. I've cast a slightly wider net this week, so hopefully there will be some entries, but I'm considering either extending the time window for challenges or having a separate ranking for late submissions.

    Week Seven Standings
    Code:



    Rule Changes

    Late Submissions
    I will start accepting late submissions, although with a couple of caveats. Late entries must score the maximum possible number of points, and will be ranked separately from the on-time runs, in the order that they are submitted.

    Piety Scumming
    Both methods of excessive piety scumming (overflow and alignment swapping) are not allowed for week 7 and onward. I simply don't want to design challenges around this.



    Week Seven

    Character:
    Gnome Ranger

    Scoring:
    Milestones:
    Code:
    1 pt - generate an elemental orb
    1 pt - generate two elemental orbs
    1 pt - generate four elemental orbs
    1 pt - win the game
    Challenges:
    Code:
    1 pt  - begin the game by spending at least 1 year and 240 days using Survival
    3 pts - only damage or kill monsters with melee attacks made with dual-wielded improvised weapons
    1 pt  - don't use any spells, wands, staves, missile attacks, or companions
    1 pt  - kill cat lord
    Improvised weapons are items not belonging to any weapon class. Note that this includes missile weapon classes, as you can get skill-based energy cost reductions when wielding bows, rocks, etc. Torches are also disallowed, despite not being weapons, as they benefit from the clubs weapon group. Incidental damage from stuff such as accidental trap activations, acid blood, and the D:48 fire orb activation are allowed.

    A save file is attached for those who find the Survival portion overly tedious.

    Submissions:
    Include a final log file as well as the score you are claiming. You can either post this here, or tag me in a message on the roguelikes discord. Submissions close after June 24th (as determined by UTC).

    Does the challenge score only apply on a win?
    Are any difficulty ok or only 100%+ ?
    With survival do you mean spending 1 year and 240 days in overland wilderness (and are random encouters ok?) or do you mean not eating any food/corpses other than using survival for satiation during that time?

    No. As long as you complete a task, or abide by a condition for the duration of the run, you score the associated challenge points.

    Only 100% difficulty, unless the challenge conditions specify otherwise.

    I mean using survival on the first tile until that much time has passed.

    Week 9 Standings
    Code:
    1. marklari ................... 10 pts
    2. blunk ......................  4 pts



    Week 9

    Character:
    Dark Elf Barbarian

    Scoring:
    Milestones:
    Code:
    1 pt - generate an elemental orb
    1 pt - generate two elemental orbs
    1 pt - generate four elemental orbs

    Challenges
    Code:
    2 pts - always be in true berserk
    2 pts - only damage monsters with melee attacks

    For the purposes of this challenge true berserk means fighting in berserk tactics while not wearing a helmet, body armor (except for armors of rage), cloak, girdle, gauntlets, or boots. This is to avoid any weird issues with disarming and item destruction, as you are required to wield a weapon to get the true berserk bonus to-hit/damage.
