well, I played a bit and got to clvl 17 and had a crash (message was just "software bug") and that seemed to corrupt the savefile because now I'm getting "broken savefile" again :-(

Looks as though at least one of the Erebus versions should be a UNIQUE, and possibly both? Certainly a pit of 44K xp monsters is, ah, not going to get cleared..

Is it possible to get XP in this game for non-monster-killing actions? If so, I might just start a character, get some pacifist XP, and then retire +inf competition score, baby!

Yes, it is possible, but I have no idea how Nick set up the competition ladder to handle dividing by zero. You might get stuck at the bottom.

Well, technically pav set it up. As far as this schem goes, let me quote from the competition page:
"Winner is the max XP/killcount (we'll see how that scoring system goes)"

I guess we're seeing

On that note...since letslaugh's entry is almost certainly out of reach for my main character, I got to thinking, always a dangerous thing. How would people feel about my posting a heavily-stairscummed character to the competition ladder?

OK, seeing this after commenting on your char: I think that it's just fine. Within both rules and spirit of comp; colour me impressed.

Competition 126 is now officially over; congratulations to myshkin for his brilliant gaming of the flawed scoring system
