a note on the challenge, rposted from apolyton

download the game, version 2.7.2 from here

www.Zangband.org

the contest is being run on two different sites, here and at CG, www.counterglow.com

download the save, stick it into the save folder, and change the name to remove the .txt (this is after you already installed zangband)

everytime you die, downlad the save again (or have a save copy would probably be better), and rename it again

inside the game, go open, instead of newgame, and open the save that you downladed from here

What the hell have they done to the character stats?

WIS 15.2?

is 22 strength equivalent to 18/40 or... what?

The guardian naga must have netted you most of your experience :)

Jon Miller part Deux
15-01-2003, 22:25:41
they went up an addition in D&D rules

and I think 22 would be equivilent to an 18/40

and yes, that in the inital game the guardian naga netted me 9 levels or so, the next one I only got 7 or something, the key is to be able to recharge before you run out of charges on your wand, after that the goal is to be able to buy more wands (never been able to do this yet, had the money once, could not teleport away)
