Someone is going to have to make something (relevant) up. This is too good a topic to waste.

Unfortunately, Dikiyoba has no ideas at the moment.

So, seems like ideas here are welcome :)
Let's state some rules, I guess. Let me start, don't judge too tough :)
1. They have to have something in common with BoA
2. It has to be a competition
3. No scenario competition here, there is enough for that in other threads.
More? Corrections?

Hey, an idea! What about an idea competition? Or does it already exist.

I think an idea competition was discussed at some point on the lyceum, but never came through.

Any other ideas?
It will be a friendly competition in trying to think up a sort of competition.

This isn't the BoA Editor forum, so I am assuming we are supposed to consider challenges for players, rather than designers. This one is inspired by Creator's level 1 accomplishments in BoE:

Win the hardest scenario you can, entering with a level 1 party. For an extra challenge, make it the default level 1 party.

Ash tried to do Bahs with a level 1 party and concluded that it was pretty much impossible. If anyone can demonstrate otherwise, I'd be impressed and want to know the details.

I think the best anyone did on Canopy was Thuryl-- level 20, torment.

Creator at a lower level ended up barely beating some of the bugbear enemies (including tigers), but he absolutely couldn't beat the invisible warriors.

I seem to recall killing one bugbear with a level one party, before dying.

May be we should name a concrete scenario and see how far one can go with a level 1? Calculating gained exp.points at the end? So? Bahssikava?

Well, it'd pretty much have to be Bahss, Canopy, OoK or EM for one simple reason- all other scenarios allow the party to level up, so if the party can kill one random enemy, the party can feasibly win supremely. EM might be too "easy," as might OoK. Bahss also has a LOT of fights to allow a party to potentially beef up.

I'm going with Canopy on this one simply because its dillema is always "kill or be killed," which is best-suited to lower-leveled parties anyway. Bahss, on the other hand, focuses on long struggles, in which low-level parties will simply run out of energy and expire, so to speak. Since Canopy on the other hand gives the party a tremendous trove of energy potions, this becomes less of a dillema.

A level 1-party that runs first through the Artifacts Hall?

I reckon the Artifacts Hall should be off limits. Infinite Balu's Elixir and all...

No Balu's Elixir.
But, hm. I might consider allowing VotDT+RoR artifacts, simply so that level 1 parties don't end up not being able to equip all party members decently.
