Hello all! Welcome to the rules for the crawl.akrasiac.org 2009 Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup Tournament. The simple part: Play on crawl.akrasiac.org or crawl.develz.org and all of your Crawl 0.5.1 games that start after midnight UTC on August 1 will count toward the tournament.
If you wish to be a member of a clan, which may contain six or fewer members, you need to add a line to the top of your CAO rcfile like this:
# TEAMCAPTAIN nameofcaptain
This should be the very first line of your rcfile, with no blank lines or comments appearing before this line. The # is important to make sure Crawl doesn't try to parse the team data as an option.
The team captain must put more information in her .crawlrc, specifically these two lines:
# TEAMNAME nameofteam # TEAMMEMBERS player1 player2 player3 player4 player5
Again, these lines should be the very first two lines in the team captain's rcfile, with no blank lines or anything else appearing before these lines.
Clan names must contain only alphanumeric characters, underscores, and hyphens. Once a player's username is in the captain's rc and the captain's username is in the player's rc and our script checks for updates, the players will be in the same clan!
The big change this year will be the addition of award banners: Things you can get that put you on a list as achieving a certain goal in the tournament. Some of them are pretty standard: Rune, Win. Some of them are a little goofier and it's theoretically possible to win the tournament without getting them. How did we come up with these banners, you might ask? Well, I asked each of the Crawl gods to contribute something, and what they came up with is at the end...
- 100 points for first win. (Since winning is kind of the goal.)
- 50 points for second win that is not a repeat race or class.
- 10 points for each win thereafter, repeat or not.
- 50 extra points for your first all-rune victory.
- 100 extra points for each consecutive win that is not a repeat race or class.
- 30 extra points for each consecutive win that is a repeat race xor class.
- 10 extra points for each consecutive win that is a repeat race and class.
- 30 extra points for each non-consecutive win that is not a repeat race or class.
- 10 extra points for each non-consecutive win that is a repeat race xor class.
- 20 extra points for each win with a new god (including "No God"). This does not apply if you changed gods during the game.
For streak wins, "Repeat" means "in that streak;" for non-streak wins, "repeat" means "ever."
200/100/50 points for fastest win in realtime.
200/100/50 points for fastest win by turncount.
200/100/50 points for first win scored.
200/100/50 points for first 15-rune victory.
200/100/50 points for the longest streak of winning games. Ties are broken by first to achieve the streak.
100 bonus points for winning Nemelex' Choice characters - a character class and race combination decided at random at the beginning of each week based on a random pass over all of the unwon combinations on CAO. You will get 100 points each for as many wins of different Nemelex' Choices that you manage during the tournament.
10 points each time you find each type of rune for the first time.
1 point each time you find any rune a second or later time.
5 points the first time you kill each unique.
50/20/10 points for most unique uniques killed; ties broken by who gets that number first.
5 points per high score in a race/class combination (HuWn, not just Hu)
5 additional points for each high score that is a win.
10 points per high score in a race.
10 points per high score in a class.
200/100/50 points for most high scores in race/class combos.
200/100/50 points for highest single game score overall.
CLAN POINTS ONLY
These get you clan points but do not get you points toward the individual prize, encouraging specialization on clans but making the hypothetical "Best Crawl Player" award based on more "real" metrics.
200/100/50 points for fewest creatures killed (including by summons, &c.) in a win.
200/100/50 points for deepest level reached in a Ziggurat. Completing a Ziggurat level (for instance exiting to the dungeon from Zig:20) is also noted and is better than merely reaching the level.
50/20/10 points for lowest dungeon level reached at XL1.
50/20/10 points for lowest XL at which a rune is picked up, not including the Abyssal rune.
50/20/10 points for "Most Unique Deaths" trophy: Killed by the most unique uniques.
2 points per player ghost killed when playing
N points per ghost kill after dying, where N is the dying character's XL minus 5.
200/100/50 points for clan with most high scores in race/class combos.
100/50/20 points for clan with most uniques killed (or all uniques killed first)
10 points for each distinct skill raised to level 27.
Sum total of individual points for wins, runes, and uniques, sum total of special wins points, sum total of high scores points, plus "Clan points only" trophies above.
Six players or less per clan.
