Despite the results so far, I think I agree with Timo. The Dwarf feels faster to me, which may be why my attemps so far have ended in stupid deaths. The better I feel like I'm doing, the more risks I take and so I die. I hope to have the time to give the Dwarf one more try before the comp ends. I'm curious for the same player to have a winner in each comp - not a perfect control but probably the best we can ask for. Not to ignore the impressive feat of joshhimself of doing just that, but he noted that he "didn't realize with the dwarf that I was supposed to be going for active turns and not total turns." And his turn counts are almost the same, so it'd be nice to see if another data point provides at least an anecdotal difference.

Competitions 89 and 90 have now finished, with Roch the overall winner (with the fastest win, in competition 90), and thapper winning comp 89. Congratulations also to joshhimself for the remarkable feat of getting a game winner in each comp, and to dummy for a winning Darin.

Based on joshhimself winning chars, I'd say those two are actually pretty similar. What surprised me is that player turns and active turns difference is actually quite a bit less in his Dwarf winner than his H-Troll winner, even that H-Troll has regeneration, which exactly opposite that one would have expected.

Dwarf has about 2x the SP as a H-T, so their absolute regen rate is about the same. (HP is a different story.)

That's because I didn't realize that the goal was fewest active turns until after I had already finished with the dwarf. So I played the troll a bit differently, resting more. I even rested at 50' a few times to get the shops to cycle (with the half-troll), since this takes no active turns other than finding the stairs back up.

I feel like the dwarf is actually a faster and easier priest, at least for my playing style - especially in the early and middle game.
