Skill-less tourney Signup and progress thread

Once there was a time of need. Heroes was sought throughout the lands to defend the mortal realm against the hordes of Evil. Long were the battles but finally the mortal heroes succeded.
In one tavern in a city, not far from Tristram, one man was not impressed.
His name was Zealless and he was a Paladin reject.
He arranged a competition for ordinary folks, without those special skills the heroes of old frequently used, just to proof that killing Baal is nothing special.

And here it is, the skill-less tourney!

1. You may not put any points into any skill.
2. You may play SC, but If you do you're out of the tourney when you die.
3. No multiplaying.
4. Rerunning is allowed.
5. All items and runewords are allowed, except those not normally available to SP chars.
6. Any /players setting may be used and altered at any time.
7. All quests must be completed, but no rewards are required to be collected.(They need to be finished before exiting the act they're in. Rewards can be gotten later)
8. Atma may be used as an extended stash between sessions, but nothing you haven't found in this tourney goes on your char/merc.
9. Any build and any merc merc may be used.
10. The winner is the one that has gotten the most points before stopping or dying.

Point system:
-15 points if using a merc.
+2 point per quest, +1 per WP
-1 point/character lvl gained
+10 for finishing normal
+25 for finishing NM
+50 for finishing hell (bloody lightly)

Starting time/Ending time
Starting will be allowed as soon as you've signed up in this thread. In order to limit the amount of rerunning you'll be doing it will end in march 31 at 24:00 CET (gmt+1). The signup period will end in january 31st, but if someone really wants to participate and missed the signup It can perhaps be arranged.

Prize stash: Everyone should stash of ALL uniques and set items they find that they are not using to be used as a prize stash.
These items will be divided among the top 3 competitors by choice. The winner gets 5 items, the 2nd place finisher gets 3 and the 3rd place finisher gets 2.
The rest will keep for a later tourney...

Participants (these chars was signed up beforehand in the input thread):

name: Zealless
Class: Paladin
Merc: no

Name: Systematic
Class: Sorceress
Merc: no

The people showing interest without signing up a specific char will have to sign up again... (I will not reject any participants and you have to post your chars anyway, so it should make no difference.)
