So, the aim of the game is to defeat the master in dreadfell with a given set of talent trees. You can play on any difficulty, with any race, and any non-cheaty addons (if you have to ask, its probably a cheat addon)
To put the rules in a more readable format:
No cheat addons, this includes: Hulk, any form of choose escorts (no ez mode tinkers anyways), any addon that modifies adventurer for a non QoL reason, any addon that modifies the number of points you receive on level up, etc.
Obviously, no cheating. Don't hack your all damage values to 100000%. Thank you.
Play online so the character is in the char vault. Makes it easy to track wins.
No use of the vault please. Pulling out Sawrd might make your run easy, but it also makes it too easy.
Beat master, win challenge. I don't care what you do after that.
Use only the specified trees. No escort trees (though their talents are fine). Yes, this includes tinkers, because they come from an escort. Antimagic and fungus are fine.
Play on any difficulty you like, on any permadeath setting (some worth more than others).
Points will be obtained from a win and I'll put them into a spreadsheet(for posterity). Higher difficulty/harder permadeath means more points.
All exploration wins are worth 1 point, easier wins are worth 0.
Pick any vanilla race you want, class is always weekly adventurer.
Points are "elitism points", courtesy of dado. Elitism points are earned by completing the challenge. You are awarded 2 point for Normal, 4 points for Nightmare, 8 points for Insane. Playing on roguelike awards +2 points.
Feel free to link this wherever, we would love more people to join!
When you win, just drop your charsheet here, we'll add it to the spreadsheet.
So, the way this works is that you download this addon (version 1.0.3): https://te4.org/games/addons/tome/weekly-adventurer
and you click on the weekly adventurer class (highly suggest picking your race first so you don't get the popup twice).
Once you do that, you get a popup that says "enter seed," this weeks happens to be: madnessdoesntexist
Just hit yes and you're good to go! Yes, some trees will be unlocked automatically. That's fine. Good luck and have fun!
Also one other thing, more of minmay's idea than my own, but if you would like to, as an addon creator, submit trees from your own addon, then I would love to add them to the random selection process.
Sidenote: If you're using the steam version of the addon, steam wasn't letting me upload 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 or 1.0.3, so you'll have to manually download it.
someone pls send help, steam isn't letting me upload new versions at all
Trees for this week (with seed madnessdoesntexist):
