This will be the first competition in a short series of Magic System Exploration competitions.

This competition has no savefile. Instead, you can pick from one of the following PosChengband classes:

- Anything in the Magic section (including blue mage, even though they're bookless)
- Anything in the Hybrid section
- Martial Arts -> Monk
- Martial Arts -> Force Trainer
- Prayer -> Priest (this is the only option)

When choosing a personality, you can use anything except Munchkin (which is a cheat/tutorial thing.)

Please use the default birth options. If you want, you can turn off virtues since they're awful.

You can download PosChengband 3.4.5 here. You can also just build source from the GitHub repo -- it's a minor point release ahead, but that is mostly cosmetic and won't really matter.

Winner is the game winner in the least play time, or if no winners the most uniques killed.

Unsolicited advice:
- For most magic classes, a low-XP race (like Human) is a good idea, otherwise the midgame is really difficult.
- Monsters in PosChengband get 'ticked off' when hit by ranged attacks, and will preferentially bomb you with their stronger spells when this happens. You can avoid this with the 'subtle casting' demigod (attained CL20 or CL40) or human perk (CL30)
- You are guaranteed to get the 3rd spellbook of your primary realm from Smaug (Lonely Mountain boss) and the 4th spellbook of your primary realm from Null (Darkness Cave boss)
- You can also get the 4th chaos, nature, and sorcery books (if available to you) in tower quests at Zul (town in the northeast mountains), but these are quite dangerous.

GLHF -- and try a bunch of stuff!
