|The recently released NPPAngband 0.5.2 is the variant for competition 100, which will be a cracker.|
Narthalin is an Elf Brigand. Her first quest is to kill Golfimbul, the hill orc chief.
Goal: Kill every unique (all 104 of them, including Morgoth) in the fewest gameturns. The player must complete the first quest (kill Golfimbul at 100'). Players should not go down to 100' until they are ready to do battle with him, as leaving the quest level usually results in a failed quest. Excessive stairscumming, signified by 15 or more notes in the player notes section of the player failing to enter a greater vault is not allowed.
Here are a couple notes for players not familiar with NPP:
There are scrolls of summon unique in NPP that will be helpful for tracking down those last couple uniques.
Watch out for Azathoth. He is one of the most dangerous uniques in the game, almost as powerful as Morgoth.
Quests are quite useful in NPP for building a powerful character, but will be detrimental to your turncount for this competition.
Compared to Angband, there are many more characters below 2500' that can breathe or cast spells for more than 400+ damage in a single turn.
A Brigand is a thief, who simply wants to plunder the pits of Angband
to steal its greatest treasures. He is close behind the warrior in melee.
He is a master of traps and locks, no device being impossible for him to
overcome, and has the highest stealth of all classes, which can frequently
let him choose his fights. His dungeon survival skills are better than
average, and he has a fast, detailed pseudo-ID. The 'P' command allows
a brigand can attempt to steal from monsters, and the 'O' command can
set traps for unsuspecting monsters. As the brigand gains levels, he
can create an increasing variety of traps by using the 'O' command on an
existing monster trap. He is exceptionally gifted with a sling, and
gets an extra shot with a sling when he reaches level 26.
Note: In the maintainers opinion, stealing needs to be fixed. It is currently not worth the effort, unless you can sneak up on a sleeping monster that drops excellent items.
NPPAngband is available compiled for Windows or OS X, or as source.
