In a competition with connected stairs, the winner is going to be the person most willing to abuse stairscumming. Since most of us don't want to play a comp about that, we prefer disconnected stairs.

A compromise would be an FaA competition as its wilderness is hard-wired to have connected stairs (but with disconnected stairs as options for the dungeons).
Hmm - did the connected wilderness stairs give anyone a big stair-scumming edge in previous FaA competitions? I suppose the alternative would be to make future FaA competitions ironman events - to paraphrase dos350, "eek"...

PS Is anyone else tempted to modify Orfax and Boldor to say things like "eek", "hoo", "disconnected stairs please" and "I've got the munchies"? (only relevant for O/Z-variants, unless V uniques can talk now) :)

Hehehe. This isn't like what you are suggesting, but funny enough.

It does with non-Ironman mages who can stair scum the wide open Fenns using telekenesis...

Pre v1, Ang56/58 used to give bountiful treasures. It is toned down now though.

Heh, that's close enough, Philip. He's turning into a very effective "stay away from drugs, kids" cautionary tale...

Psi - I'd forgotten about Telekinesis. That combination is pretty unbalancing alright. Talking of FaF competitions, I really ought to set up a competition entry for a weaponless Druid, if only I wasn't too lazy to work out how to disable the a) slot...

look for functions with "tester_hook" in them. Maybe item_tester_hook_wear.

My first reaction to this was "But we need something which is just changed in the savefile".

But in fact, we could have custom versions of the game to be played just for the competition - that might be fun.

Custom versions will lead to clutter.

In this case, could you create a permacursed object and wield it? Then nothing else is ever wielded into that slot.

But then you'd use that for your attacks instead of the barehanded attacks.
