Unfortunately for me, I can't call myself a noob. Oh Well.

I wouldn't consider myself a noob, but not really a veteran either. I think I knew somewhere in the back of my mind that I should have re-copied the save file, but at the heat of the moment when I was dying I hurriedly started back up again and started diving.

This current character is absolutely an offender of rebirthing. He is in a pretty decent position to win the game, however (fortunately) not in position to win the comp. I think I'm already above PowerWyrm's winning turn count at dlvl 93. If the character ends up being a winner, I would be more than happy with considering it a non-competition character with ridiculous birth options.

End of the month seems like a really long time, but I'd be happy to bump the deadline to the end of next weekend. (I probably won't have my stuff together by then for the next comp anyways.)

I generally prefer not to do this since it can kinda screw over the winners, but given that PowerWyrm is currently winning a comp that is by his own design, I'm more open to it Unless I see any serious objections here in the next couple days, I'll extend the deadline to Sunday.

An extra weekend sounds like a good compromise to me .. just make sure it's end-of-the-weekend west coast time, not Toronto time !
(maybe Hawiian time?)

Just a reminder that this has been bumped to end-of-weekend (and a fair bit longer for most timezones.)

Congrats to Ingwe Ingweron for grinding out a very impressive win! Congratulations also to PowerWyrm for setting the bar high very early in the competition, and to Raajaton for the only other win.
