It seems like the simplest solution is to not play events if you don't agree with the reward system, or redeem your deed for a luck bonus instead and then continue on your adventure.
I've already commented it:

If you would read this message, you would find an answer to this question: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1092&start=20#p6107

In short: why there is 'Soloist' mode? if it's possible to limit yourself from trade with other players in NE/EL modes? Because it is online competitive game and rules has to be equal to everyone. Thats why I asked about this anti-cheezing mode for 2 years (again, this topic: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1092). And when this anti-cheezing mode finally arrived - it's got blunder in it which ruins it's concept.

You could limit yourself to anything, but in this case you could just play singleplayer Angband and put alarm clock nearby and try to make 1 turn per second. It's @#$%, dude.

If you insist that walls must be built to remove temptation...
'Soloist' - it's already kinda 'walls' compared to NE mode. But there is a huge hole in it (events' rewards) which break 'soloist' gameplay concept.

Actually main point of adding new modes - it's creating 'walls' (NE mode got 'walls' compared to 'EL' & etc).

...I would argue that nerfing the rewards is not the solution to your problem.
Why do you think so? Please could you make some arguments to to justify your position.

Perhaps there could be a 'Purist' mode, which functions exactly like Soloist, except that either a) all events with rewards are forbidden (Arena challenge should still works) or b) deeds can only be redeemed for a blessing.
I'm not sure that devs would like to create 100500 gameplay modes just to make _everyone_ happy. There has to be common sense and new modes should be added only if they give unique and very different gameplay compared to other gameplaye modes.
