Remember the level limits though. You'd only be able to use items that can be used by level 1 nomads.

One of the approaches I tried was to create a Gnome who could join the Mage's Guild right away, and had him charm a few insects to improve his survivability. I found higher A/D from stats worked better though -- don't bother fighting, just run, run, run and hope they miss you. tomato.gif

I made a Gnome and I went straight in with nothing. Couldn't even get to the steps of Level 2. The Margoyle and Zombies kept killing me. So I loaded up my other character, took them out, and tried again. Go the landing of Level 2. Owned by something (stupid arse character reckoned they were Shralar Thiefs). So I gave up.

I shall play by the rules and hope I get to level 2!! Considering I die on level 1 all the time with my level 10+ char then I think it's a major challenge

I maxed out CON and DEX, minimized all other stats, and put the extra points in STR. Then, setting my default action to defend, I rushed out and made it to (8,6,2) on the first attempt, and (7,7,2) on the second, dying at the hands of a Dungeon Bear and Giant Badger, respectively. Third attempt, (10,10,2), killed by what "Gnome King" believed to be Drey Spiders. My fourth was slightly better, reaching (10,13,2) before being stopped by another Giant Badger, but my fifth one was embarassing: I only reached (9,6,1) before a Skeleton killed me.

So, "Gnome King," two years older, and slightly less hardy, decided to gear up. Equipped with only the most basic of gear (Bronze Sword, Leather Armor, Wooden Shield, Leather Cap, Leather Gloves, Cloth Cloak, Leather Boots), he set out again, determined to reach the fifth level.

Attempt six: (10,13,2) killed by a Dungeon Pike (!?)
Attempt seven: (21,20,4) killed by an Elf
Attempt eight: (7,6,2) killed by the same Giant Badger who got me on attempt two
Attempt nine: (10,13,2) killed by that same Dungeon Pike (wtf?)
Attempt ten: (10,9,2) killed again by the Drey Spider
Attempt eleven: (7,7,2) killed yet again by the Giant Badger
Attempt twelve: (7,6,2) killed again by Giant Badger
Attempt thirteen: (11,13,2) killed another time by Dungeon Pike
Attempt fourteen: (10,6,2) killed by Cave Bear
Attempt fifteen: (7,6,2) killed by Giant Badger
Attempt sixteen: (8,7,2) killed by a Troll
Attempt seventeen: (7,7,2) killed by Giant Badger
Attempt eighteen: (10,6,2) killed by Cave Bear
Attempt nineteen: (7,7,2) killed by Giant Badger
Attempt twenty: (7,6,2) killed by Giant Badger
Attempt twenty-one: (13,18,2) killed by Skuldragl (while trying a different route)
Attempt twenty-two: (20,20,5) killed by an Elf

Success!

I thought you were only supposed to be level 1? I went down as a straight new character, no items, nothing.

I was generally talking Katanaboy! Of course you have to be only 1lvl for this challenge. You can buy some items though... you have 1500 gold when you set out.

Respawning isn't necessary if you don't kill any of them (set your default action to Defend).

I'm not sure Con is useful for this challenge -- it'll give you extra resistance to disease and poison attacks but you're better off not getting hit at all, so stats which boost A/D might be better.

Cha of 12 is probably useful, so Peaced monsters stay Peaced.

Gutsy made 22 attempt? i thought this is only one time show. I created 4 gnomes, with minimum charisma and 10 int/wis, the rest goes to str,dex and con, using their own money to but items ( not from other character). They always died by Scavenger on level 2.

Exactly. Assuming you don't level up, or kill any of the monsters, reusing a character isn't providing you with any advantage. In fact, the number of times I died actually lowered my constitution, thus making it slightly more difficult for me whenever I run past a Giant Spider or "Crystal Spider" as he oft mistook them for.

Arg... much more difficult than it seems..... I maxed out dex, set con and cha to 10, minimized int and wis, and i believe str ended up being 16.

After 50(!) attempts, my best was (21,20, 4) ... ironically killed by a gnome blink.gif

The one thing I've learned from this challenge is: Skuldragls suck. 20 out of the total 50 deaths were from a skuldragl at (10,6, 2). Of course after having finished up this challenge I promptly incinerated them with burning air courtesy my sorceror Raistlin happy.gif

Not to be a spoilsport but it takes me long enough to get to level 2 with my main character (haven't been down since last reset) and I'm at level 8 (?) nomad

Edit: Right, just added the character Gnominator with stats of 11,7,5,3,22,18 and Evil.
Attempt - Result
1 - Dimeon, 7,7,2
2 - Damn, got lost (pressed wrong key), Gredlan Rogue, 8,9,2 (Lost Con 1 point (not actually taken off??)
3 - Black Bear, 11,13,2 (Celebrated 17th)
4 - Dimeon again, 7,7,2
Give up...keep pressing wrong keys.

Yeah! of course, you've got to celebrate a birthday when you get raised. (unless you get rocked and gain 20 years)
