My only issues with the PosChengband on the webserver are the following: Running (Shift+directional key) doesn't work and its colors are off. Other than that, it may be good to go.

Pick whatever we want also means we can choose Monster races too, right? E.g. Possessors and Mimics?

Vanilla 4.1 comp will be going up in the next 24-48hrs. If anyone has a character / birth option setup they'd love to see played, post it here! Otherwise I'll just make something up, probably on the obscenely difficult side.

Half-troll mage, forced-descent no-recall.

I'm not a fan of forced descent, but no-recall would be good. I'd be partial to a human warrior. Things like mages and priests have a hard time starting up: if you look at the recent comp, about half the total turn count of the winners was spent just getting to dlvl 30. A warrior (even a human warrior) should be able to move through the initial (boring) levels a lot faster, but has a harder time down deeper. And IMO the inventory problem of no-recall is especially tough on a warrior.

edit: well, maybe a third, not a half. And yes those are Standard turns, not Game turns. But I still claim that casters spend a lot of time on the early, less interesting parts.

@bron: don't know about priests but Mages--especially HE--spend the boring time between around CL 33 and CL 40.
EDIT: *Especially* if the get shortchanged on !DEX and !Restore Mana. I've found 2 of each in my current game!

Isn't a lot of that due to having to rest to restore SP? So if you play a race with innate regeneration, that's not a problem.

To contrast with the last V comp (High str race green book class).

I mean you could get obscenely difficult with that. Kobold mage anybody?
