The Endless Sacrifice

I have been trying to unlock the skeleton race. I heard from a friend there is a chance of unlocking it every time a character dies to a skeleton, so I have created dozens of characters with the single mission of dying to skeletons. I have spent hours doing this. Is there any tips or tricks that could help me? I feel as if I am missing something. Also, can I remake the same character each time as the sacrifice, and does death to The Shade and the skeletal mold count?

Not the current way of unlocking

This was changed way back to an other kind of unlocking that does not require scumming or dumb luck :)

Thank you....that saves me a lot of trouble.
