About Crawl Cosplay Trunk Tournament (CCTT)

The Crawl Cosplay Trunk Tournament is a 4-week tournament with a different challenge each week highlighting major Trunk changes since the previous stable version. It is based on the weekly Crawl Cosplay Challenge (CCC) series for Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup (DCSS).

Each week will feature a DCSS Unique character for you to play, with one or more options for starting species and background, as well as which god you must worship. These are all mandatory and you must worship your god before entering any multi-level branch besides the dungeon (e.g. Lair, Orc, Depths). Also, you can't do anything to lose your religion, including abandoning your god. The goal is not to emulate the unique's behaviour exactly, but to get a good starting point on playing games with interesting requirements.

In the event of a tie for top spot, a very difficult bonus challenge is envisioned.

The next tournament challenge will be posted Friday at 0:00 UTC.

How to Enter

Rules and Scoring

Milestones

These remain the same from one week to the next, and are the main way of scoring points. Each milestone earns you 5 points, for a total of 35 if you win the game, and can be done in any order. You can only earn points from each milestone once per game (entering Lair and then Orc doesn't get you 10 points).

  • Reach XL3.
  • Enter Lair, Orc, or Depths.
  • Reach the last floor of Lair, Orc, or the Dungeon.
  • Collect your first rune.
  • Find the entrance to Zot. (Just using magic mapping doesn't count; you must actually have the entrance in LOS.)
  • Collect three runes.
  • Win the game.

Conducts

Each week will have three conducts for you to follow, that vary with every challenge. Following or completing each conduct is worth 5 points, to a maximum of half your score from milestones, rounded down. (So if you achieve 3 milestones (15 points) you can earn up to 7 points from conduct bonuses, for a total of 22 points.)

Bonus Challenges:

Each of the 4 challenges will also have two optional bonus challenges, that are usually difficult or unconventional. Completing a bonus challenge doesn't affect your score, but gets you a star, a small trophy to recognize your skill. Each week has one star that requires you to win the game, and another that doesn't. You don't need to follow any of the cosplay conducts to earn stars.
