24 hour Angband 4.2.3 competition on 19 February

We did a similar competition last year and had a couple of winners.

Anybody up for beating the game next weekend?

Same rules, so playing vanilla, any class race, randart stats permitted, no selling, no flavours/rune ID

I imagine it might be tricky to have two official competitions going at once on the website.

Personally, I'm not sure I'm up for another 24 hour challenge quite yet, but I would consider it.

Also, why no selling? I've been playing with selling turned on lately and kind of like it.

I think two competitions at a time is likely possible. On the other hand, I'm planning to have 4.2.4 out soonish, so waiting for that might be a good idea.

I think a swansong to 4.2.3 would be nice.

We can do a more in-depth competition for the latest release when it lands. This is just something to brighten up a dark February.

Also, re: no selling, let's make it optional. It doesn't really make a difference either way. I don't see the advantage in either system. By level 40 I've always got all the gold in the world and nothing to spend it on

What do you reckon Nick? Will you create a new 24 hour competition please for 19 February?
