I tried downloading the starting save file, but nothing happened. Is the idea that we can choose any character as long as we use the 50K starting option, or is my browser just broken ?

Any character in 50K Mode. If you look at the savefile link it just links back to the comp page

I gotta ask: does Revelations show forges in sil-q ? I just gotta asuume the answer is yes, but my (recently deceased) character burned through a dozen Revelations charges on the 700-750 ft levels without finding a single forge. Although I did turn one up with a manual search when I was in-between staffs (staves?). Surely I was just unlucky (?).

And on a totally unrelated note: what's the correct pronunciation of sil-q ? Is it two separate syllables ("sil" "queue") as the spelling would imply, or is it "silk" ?

Revelations definitely still works to find forges, I just ran a quick test with the one on 100', so it sounds like you were pretty unlucky.

I originally intended sil-q, pronounced silk, but Gwarl's initial upload on angband.live was called Sil-Quirk (possibly coming from some confusion between my github name and the repository - the URL is https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q). This I think may have had some impact on people capitalising it Sil-Q early on. I gave up on silk shortly after and capitalised it Sil-Q myself, and now even in my own head I think of it as Sil-queue.

Congrats to Quirk on an early and very convincing win on his own variant

Ah. I didn't win. Our winner is quite definitely bron, who - amazingly - killed Morgoth twice with a heady combination of Smithing and Archery. I was not at all sure this was possible at 50K, and I think it's a great achievement.

I'd also like to give a shout out to Holy_Rage who managed the other competition ascension with the grim Neldir (see http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=9020).

Doesn't this comp have a little over a day left? Thraalbee's @ still shows as alive and moving up the ranks. While I'm not playing the comp, don't want to undercut anyone who is making a last ditch effort.

Thanks Ingwe, I definitely wanted to finish my last attempt (and just did) and what a rush it was. Close to epic struggles with a lot of hallucination, trapped in pits, getting paralyzed and poisoned way beyond what you could survive. And still I persevered and managed to roll over the final tile back home with a shiny sil in hand. Just one although my target was two, but it was the right decision to bail the throne room when I had the chance.
