This is pointless... You can win the game and then rest for ages until you're back at level 1 with 0 xp. The winning criteria should still be lowest turn count.

Alternately, you can edit your chardump to make your turncount 1 before uploading it to the competition ladder. The first rule of the competition is "please don't be a jerk."

I'm not interested in making these competitions as hypercompetitive and as ungameable as possible; I'd rather that we try odd/zany things that we haven't already done 163 times before. If we really wanted to have a weapons-grade competition ladder, we would basically have to host a game server somewhere. (Maybe PWMAngband???? )

No you can't. It's max xp, not current xp.

What's the max. blindness counter for vanilla? I set of a blindness trap about 100x & now I'm just stumbling around till I accidentally run into things & kill them.

Edit: stumbled over a true sight potion, how convenient.

Just tried to upload my final dump for Bilbo and got the 'character with higher xp already found' message.
Is there anything I can do about that, other than changing the name and marking the previous one as dead?

And by 'final dump', I mean he's dead so I can't go back in and wait until my xp is higher than the previous dump (but I won't ruin the surprise and tell you whether he died on dlvl100 or dlvl0...).

Barg. I'd rather not bug Pav about this, he already does a lot Changing your dude's name and posting would probably be the easiest thing to do.

No worries. Will do.

Well, character dump does not count unless it is posted immediately after winning, a note in character history mention exact turn when big 'P' was killed.
