Competition 118

Competition 118 is now available from the competition page - it is a Sil 1.0.2 Noldor of the house of Fingolfin.

Note that Competition 117 has less than a day to go.

EDIT: Note that Mac users should Import the savefile from the file menu, rather than trying to open it directly from the a-d choices at the start screen. And play the tutorial first

Hi Nick,

The competition seems to be sorting by something other than score (perhaps experience/turns?); it is, for example, putting me higher up the ranking than I deserve, and if my guess is correct would be won by a character dump right at the start (since you start with 5,000 experience). Is it possible to fix this?

A sub-challenge for this competition is to see how high a Slaying bonus you can reach. In my rather ignominious attempt this evening I reached a +6 bonus, but died while gorged with food at 350 ft.

How many times can you try? Or do you get one shot?

If you mean at the comp, then assuming it runs like the previous ones you get as many goes as you want. You do get to learn the flavours though (you really want some sort of 'comp' flag on a savefile that scrambles them each time you restart).

What Psi said. There is also a sticky with all the rules, but I have wondered how a 'one-and-done' competition, where you only get one shot at it, would wash out (since that's my preferred playstyle).

Ew. I usually burn through somewhere between 7 and 25 chars every time I try a comp, so I would not welcome this! But it might work better for Sil, where death is .... er... no, that's not right ....

OK, how do I tell wheher I have a Slaying bonus and how big it is? Just look at the die roll box?

Probably never going to matter as it would break my sneak approach to sing anyway .

Slaying bonus.

OK, (i) I lied and (ii) it's blindingly obvious once you try it .

Turned it on for the first time after making it back to the Gates, in the orc-room top left. Hit +21 at one point but I forgot to eat Rage first; I'll try that on the other side!
