This challange is a little bit of a wierd one. It can be made as easy or as hard as the player wishes. I am also permitting the use of Editors to achieve the starting conditions of this challange, since it would be difficult to get there otherwise. (apologies hardcore gamers).

You can submit/brag about entries at any point in the characters career, however the point of the challange is defined in the characters stats at retirement (IE dying of old age).

The challange is to create the most survivable HUMAN character within a given guild. In the true spirit of RPG you may choose any guild you wish to begin in, but you must start with the MINIMUM stats of that guild. This is the point where an editor may be required, and is the only point where an editor may be used. And, before anyone asks, YES that does include the Nomad guild (1,1,1,1,1,1) good luck with that.

ok.gif You may :-

Buy and or use any equpment that is in the Store, even if it has been placed there by another character and comes from deep in the dungeon, but you must buy it yourself.

Use anti-aging products, potions etc.

Buy and sell companions.

Retrieve the dead character form within the dungeon useing another character.

not_ok.gif You may not :-

Pass gold or items to your new character

Use any other glitch/cheat-ish method to obtain gold or items.

Pay for or otherwise interfere with the resurection of your new character.

Kill a monster with a powerful character and leave the ches for your character to open.

Use editors mods or other hacks to help you, other than to create starting conditions.

I don't know if anybody will be intersted in trying this challange, but i think it seems like fun. The difficulty is deided, more or less, by the guild you choose. Warriors will have an easier time to begin with than mages, and Nomads will suck completely.

When posting your characters, the stats you must include are:-

Name
Age
Guild and Level
Gold
Deepest level
Kills
Deaths
Completed

I appreciate this seems like a lot on info, but it will not go to waste, every month or so I will view the entries and come up with a "winner" for each guild.

As I have said, I'm not sure if anyone will want to try this, but would dearly love it if anyone was stupi...I mean brave enough to take up the Nomad challange. naughty.gif

I apologise for bumping the topic, but I just wondered if anybody was actually interested in this challenge or am I juct a total prat for even suggesting it.
Don't worry if I am, it happens quite a lot. killing the conversation (and other peoples will to live) is something of a speciality with me.

Well, I'll do this if no one else is going to. I normally play solo characters anyway, so the only real change is going to be limiting myself to a single guild. I was strongly tempted to make a Nomad, but I'm just not enough of a masochist. Therefore I will joining the best guild in the game, aka Ninja.

And in just under one hour of playtime, here is what I have so far:

Name: Rana Grande
Age: 18
Guild and Level: Ninja 10
Gold: 1,563,396
Deepest level: 1
Kills: 332
Deaths: 0
Quests Completed: 2

Current Stats: 13 Str, 11 Int, 7 Wis, 9 Con, 3 Cha, 15 Dex, 42/36 Att/Def, 56 HP, 90 SP

I'm playing on a fresh install so I'll be finding everything I use, but this should be a fun and extremely playable character.

Here's a little update. I've found some nifty items and a few potions, and I might venture down to level 2 before too much longer.

Guild and Level: Ninja 30
Gold: 12,981,214
Deepest level: 1
Kills: 3,336
Deaths: 0
Quests: 6/6
Completed: no

Current Stats: 15 Str, 11 Int, 8 Wis, 9 Con, 3 Cha, 16 Dex, 72/72 Att/Def, 133 HP, 95 SP

I think a solo ninja should be able to do it, but it will likely end up being very dependent on items. Anyway, here's another little update. Since the last time, I have become the Ninja Guildmaster, and I found enough Potions of Insight to allow me to go on a toming binge.

Name: Rana Grande
Age: 27
Guild and Level: Ninja 49
Gold: 2,423,784
Deepest level: 2
Kills: 9,957
Deaths: 0
Quests: 12/13
Completed: no

Current Stats: 23 Str, 19 Int, 16 Wis, 13 Con, 10 Cha, 23 Dex, 132/153 Att/Def, 171 HP, 165 SP

I haven't played a whole lot recently, but I did just finally get my stats maxed, so it's time for another little update

Name: Rana Grande
Age: 28
Guild and Level: Ninja 63
Gold: 28,965,493
Deepest level: 2
Kills: 17,292

Completed: no

Current Stats: 26 Str, 23 Int, 24 Wis, 22 Con, 23 Cha, 28 Dex, 173/194 Att/Def, 199 HP, 225 SP
