The game has score modifiers for everything so perhaps an anything goes competition could be fun, see how the score system works out. Cryomaniac can suggest some newbie friendly options to put in the description.

The most 'newbie friendly' options would be hybrid classes that can perform well in melee and have some support abilities.

If you're using unique classes, that's Yuuka, Aya, Eiki, Toyosatomimi, Mayumi, Keiki, Momoyo, Yorihime + some others. If you're using standard race/class combos, Celestials/Shinigami/Great-Youkai have excellent racial bonuses, while Magic-Knights/Shugenja are good at melee and can study magic well, and Mindcrafters still have their 'toolbox' set of abilties with decent melee as well.

OK, there's a ladder now. Somebody should:
  1. Try submitting a dump and
  2. Prepare a savefile

Where do I submit? I don't see new variants on the ladder

EDIT: It won't be in the list until a new dump arrives, right?

Correct; it should appear if you submit a dump.

It didn't automatically mark it as 'dead', so I had to do it manually; what's the logic for this?

EDIT: Does it check for 'You were killed' string? This variant uses 'were defeated' instead
