Okay folks, here it is. Angband Challenge #17, character supplied by our previous winner MDA.

Character #17 is Gord the Gutless (aka Gutless Gord), a Half-Orc Trump Rogue, and will be delving the dungeons of ZAngband v2.4.0.

Here are the rules:

1. NO CHEATING. This game is basically being run on the honour system. No-one can stop you making save-reload backups, but it is not part of the rules. If you die at CLevel 49 one turn before killing Morgoth, you'll have to start from CLevel 1 again. (Not that you'd need to, since you're almost guaranteed to win)

2. You have around two weeks to get as far as possible. It is possible to win the game during this time period. Due date will be 2002-JUL-17 2200 GMT (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/) (that's 10PM, folks).

3. There are some options you are not allowed to change. Below I will list the ones that are forbidden for you to change during the challenge.


3 - Auto-scum for good levels
3 - Generate dungeons with aligned rooms
3 - Generate dungeons with connected stairs
3 - Monsters chase current location (v. slow)
3 - Monsters chase recent locations (v. slow)
3 - Monsters learn from their mistakes
3 - Monsters exploit players weaknesses
5 - Allow unusually small dungeon levels
5 - Always create unusually small dungeon levels
5 - Allow empty 'arena' levels
5 - Monsters behave stupidly
Any of the "Cheat Options"


The others you may change according to your preferences. Keep in mind that this is only the list for ZAngband 2.4.0. Other variants will have other options, and will have their own taboo list.

Remember, when changing options then saving the character to the disk and making a backup to start with should your character meet an untimely end, you cannot play any turns between changing options then saving the character.

If you dispute any of the rules or option changes, post your objection, and we can all debate whether or not the rule should stand. Any suggestions for further rules will be welcomed.

Last but not least, here's the link to the Angband Challenge Page (http://www.geocities.com/qaj_stars/chal.html).

Good luck, and happy adventuring!

Sorry that this is a little late, folks. This is the first opportunity I've had to sit down at my PC all day.

Certainly one of the most quickly levelling characters I've played. Level 3 after 30 seconds in the wilderness, 8 ten minutes later, 10 after the sewer quest...

Just realized we recently did a trump rogue - apologies, but sorcery and arcane magic, although handy, isn't as much FUN. :o

half orc rogues are less stealthy and better fighters IIRC, so its a little different.

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm

Proably a little easier to survive, especially the earlier levels. I'll have to give this one a bit of a run through the dungeon later this weekend.

I've been working solid twelve hour days, followed with work on weekends; it looks like another single digit entry for me.

I'm only in the teens, with my second character. NWN editor and single player have been exerting more than the usual force on my free time.

Red Nagas drain a whole lotta strength. Went back to the surface with a strength of 9 but also a Spear of Westernesse(+9,+9)[+2]. Fair trade.

Well, it looks like the Challenge will be taking another hiatus after this match, unless I hear from you guys otherwise. It's not so much fun when the comptition is so light :) (And I ca't talk, I've been assembling my new computer and getting that up and running over the past 2 weeks, so I haven't had time for Angband either).

Then again, maybe it was just boring!
