Comp 228
For the festive season, we'll be playing a Half-troll Druid.

Another sadistic combo from Gwarl. Maybe Father Christmas will bring a good drop, uh, when the ugly half troll nature lover bludgeons him to death....;)

Have to agree with Ingwe here. Half Troll is not a great choice for a character with Advanced Spellcasting: it's hard for them to get 18/200. Admittedly Wis is better than Int, but it's still hard. And no, of course there's no requirement to get 18/200, but if you don't, then you're throwing away one of the major reasons to play that class in the first place. As Ingwe said - a sadistic combo. "A challenge" as we like to say ...

Here's hoping for another comp 222 result - :)

I do have one sort of on topic question, why always use the same settings? Why not spice it up here and there. It'd make the game a bit more interesting in my opinion. ;)

Download starting save file not working for me

Im new in the competition. We have to create our own savefile setting options in that way? Thanks!

This suggestion is too late, but this race/class combo might make sense for an ironman run (starts with regen and satisfy hunger).

Seems a strong combo to me. Fox form is fast so having regen makes them very good at kiting.

Druid comments
Fox form is great, much better than bat form for necromancer, in fact the +2 attacks makes it more like a combination of bat and warg form. I'm probably plodding a bit too much below level 30 - fox form allows me to buff up, take fox form, and then plow through monsters (with free action). I just don't have any other form or free action yet so taking it a bit slow.

Question about combined movement speed. I now have boots of Wormtongue, so when I'm in fox form does my movement speed increase even more than normal? Some sort of indication on this would be nice.

I also noticed that when I take fox form, my inventory window does not update to my new strength situation, so I need to do something on my screen to make it update (roguelike i, followed by ESC).
