Competition 135

In late celebration of the release of 'The Hobbit' movie, competition 135 is now available from the competition page; it is an Angband 3.4.1 Hobbit Rogue.

Note that comp 134 still has a few hours to go.

As it happens, I am unfortunately enough already playing an (O) hobbit rogue.

This sounds fun... ironman and starting almost naked at 500' on a semi-insane level.

By the way, why the pebbles?

Throwing stones was the main thing Bilbo was good at. And eating.

Not sure the competition page is ranking the results so far properly... shouldn't it be by max xp / standard turns?

You were right, it was sorting on XP/game turns - pav has now fixed it.

I can't help but notice there is always a ranking problem.

The process for setting up the scoring goes like this:
  1. I come up with a ranking scheme, based on values readable from the character dump;
  2. I let pav know the scheme, by email;
  3. pav writes some code to read the relevant values and calculate the rankings.

So if I forget to email, or set up impossible conditions, or explain badly or wrong, or pav misunderstands, or doesn't get to his email, or miscodes, then things go wrong. All this is being done across many different variants, so we're both inclined to make assumptions about the character dump which turn out to be wrong. And even if we get everything technically right, my instructions on the competition page may be confusing or wrong.

Also, if anyone ever complains, we have special code to make them appear last

And Bilbo killed Morgoth!

I don't play V a lot, but that surely was a fun game...
