lol, now I get the same error with Gorbad's savefile on OSX that you guys were getting on windows.

I actually don't care enough to figure out what's going on, but I know in comp126 Nick made one savefile that seemed to work for everyone.

I'm just going to pack both savefiles into a zip file and people can choose the one they want, I doubt the initial seed will make a huge enough difference to affect who wins anyhow.

Thanks for cooking this up so quickly, Gorbad.

Edit: OK I updated the competition page with a 'savefile pack'. I also bumped the end date by 2 days to compensate for all the silliness.

Thanks for the help everyone! glhf

So.... why only 3 participants so far???

Not a fewest turns race, so even if you're unfamiliar with the variant you can take your time. Monster knowledge would be helpful... but many things are pretty Vanilla. Nice work done by the author on the details! Pretty polished, if not perfectly balanced/complete yet.

And, what's the Anti-magic amulet do? Improve my saves? No spoilers for Hellband so kinda on my own here. Edit: well it prevents me from spellcasting, so I guess for warriors only...

If it's the same as ZAngband and its various descendants, then it sets your saving throw to a minimum of 95%, but prevents spellcasting. A godsend for non-magical classes, who generally have lousy saves. Not so helpful for the casters.

Congrats to ranger jeff for winning the comp! Thanks to our other 3 participants as well

I'm curious why Hellband draws so few competitors. It seems pretty well put-together as a variant.

Hellband is awesome! I really enjoyed playing through it a few years ago. It has this strange curve of hard/easy/hard/easy/hard. Same with loot drops. Glut/none/some. And atmosphere. But, the reason *I* don't play competitions is I want to play *my* character. I dunno, something about loading up the same character as everyone else makes me feel *icky*.

Also, between you and Nick, so masochisitc. Much pain. Ouch.

A lot of our recent comps have been create-your-own-character!

Finger in my eye. I realize that. Flimsy excuse is flimsy. I really haven't been in a banding mood in many months now, so sorry. Hellband really did almost make me play your comp, especially as the character had Tarot cards at disposal. The directed teleport spell in the tarot cards is, how do you put it... amazeballs!
