Next week sees the beginning of Challenge #16. It's due to start Wednesday, but will start earlier if I get the character before then.

Sir Penguin, you get to roll up the character. You should have my email address somewhere, don't make me post it for the net spiders again.

will we be moving to the competitions forum?

Undecided. I'm leaning towards no, since not only do the challenge threads contain the actual challenge, but they also discussion of the game itself, which IMHO belongs in this forum.

But on the other hand, it is a competition of sorts, so it could go in the other forum too.

thinking about it....

I'll be able to find it either way.:gotit:

I've had the character ready since two days after the end of the last competition :). I'll probably send it tomorrow, since I have to go to the computer lab anyway. I'm probably not going to post a competition dump, since I have to study for the next few weeks. But I have a nice little dump (which I'm still playing) which I'll post at the beginning, just to show off some of the unique characteristics of this character.

OK, I lied. I'll do it sometime in the next half-week :).

My character is still alive, but I (with my usual aticidal level of curiosity) figured I would find out what I could get by recalling down to dlevel 98 with the trump tower and reading a scroll of Acquirement that I'd found some time earlier in the dungeon. Naturally, this set my recall depth to 4900' (which I didn't know it would do), so I can't get back to my regular 950' without blowing another ten grand AU. I might be able to get a little farther, as I have about 20,000 available, but not too much (unless I can find another potion of XP :)). I guess Trump magic is good for something.

By the way, the scroll of Acquirement got me the Lochbar Axe of The Dwarves.

At what level do scrolls of acquirement normally appear?

I don't know, but they don't come along very often in my experience.

I'm having a particularly hard getting this character savefile off my hard drive and onto the Internet. I wonder if I can attach it to a PM.

Nope. Do you mind if I attach it to a post in this thread, Qaj?

Go ahead. The Challenge will start the moment the file becomes available on this thread. Then I'll create a proper thread for it, stick the file on the web site etc., making it official.

Or you could ICQ it to me at 22 * 073 - 043. That's not a math problem, BTW :)

If I had ICQ :)...

Here he is. (Maybe)

It's a .txt filename; its proper extention is .gz . I hope you guys can deal with it.

can't you use zip or ace like normal people? :p

That was a pain in the ass.

If I used zip, I would have to type three words instead of two :). Of course, I could always use bzip2!
