Do we want to do this? This weekend or another one? Angband 4.2.3? Any other requests?
Weekend after this works better for me (and likely others in the US with Labor Day weekend plans)

Yeah I'm working this weekend, but the following weekend is good for me.

I think as basic guidelines:
4.2.3
No restriction on race/class
No selling
Know all runes and flavours on birth? Not a deal breaker, but it does speed up the early game and means fewer recalls for ID in shops.

What about randarts? It might be fun seeing what the game generates for different players. But standard artifacts would level the playing field a bit.

OK, it's actually properly up now, I think it's correct - let me know if not. The time is set to 1pm Saturday which is probably actually 11am UTC because of daylight savings in Prague but whatever, I think it's close enough.

That can be changed. Would people prefer randarts?

Well...everything is pickable by the player except the only thing I actually care about. On top of that, I maintain that randarts are _not_ an advantage for a competition, for various reasons. I might be wrong about that...but clearly it is not the most unbalancing option.

So, why not leave it to the player to pick stand- or randarts ?
