[Can't think of a better title at the moment]

Since Spooge hasn't been around in a while and nobody seems to have attempted the Medusa challenge, here's a new challenge game:

Nimblefingers' Challenge
1) Create a character (obviously). There are no restrictions on race except that he must be neutral and have stats which will allow him to join the thieves' guild from the start.
2) Join the thieves' guild.
3) Keep levelling, but you're only allowed to level the character as a thief. No other guild is allowed. Not even Nomad.
4) Try getting as much gold as possible in as little time as possible.

If you like you can create additional characters to form a party, but they will also have to be pure thieves. There is no time restriction (except that the challenge is over on 24 January), but the final score will be based on overall playing time, the number of party members and the collective amount of gold in your bank account.

Happy thieving! sneaky.gif

(The usual rules apply: you need to wipe your data files clean before you start playing. Either post the character file as an attachment or send it to me.)

that would have to be factored in the number of party members, although in this case I don't really see the advantage of doing that, the object is to get as much money as possible and since your dead thief is broke...

This is just a reminder that the challenge is still running. And considering there have been no entries yet, everyone should stand a fair chance. sneaky.gif So go on, start thieving!

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. You can either attach your character file (mdata4.mdr) to a post you make in this thread (just scroll down after hitting "reply") or if you don't want anybody else to see your character you can email the file to me at aj.raffles@gmail.com.It's up to you, really. smile.gif

Fair enough. I'll extend the deadline to next monday, all right?

So far, Kaalim is leading, by the way. ohmy.gifk:

THX! I'll do my best! yahoo.gif

Edit: I just realized something, I am not good with having just one class to work with, maybe that's why I have 13 different diablo 2 characters of roughly the same level.... bleh.gif

You'll have to count me out, I get too bored with just one class.

Hmm, I was kind of hoping there'd be more entries...
Anyway: the winner is... *drumroll*... Kaalim, whose thief Arsene (nice name sneaky.gif ) managed to steal 98.957.378 gold with his sidekick Bardamu. biggrin.gif
