How do I escape from your lair?
The upstairs is wrapped in WoD proof stone.
I have no pick, no shovel, no pointy bone.
No teleportation... wait... I do have teleportation. brb.

- you have to use "#name-y" in order to get the "your hand slips" message when trying to identify grey stones, helms or amulets. "#name-n" doesn't work, and the artefacts page explains why quite concisely.
- the altar/prayer spoiler goes on about "co-aligned" a lot. it took me ages to realise that in the case of temples, this means that the priest is the same alignment as the altar, not the same alignment as me. this means that if you're standing next to a priest it only matters whether they're the same alignment as the altar, and whatever alignment that is you can donate and get your added protection. if you deserve it, of course. and…
Someone edited my page!!! That was not me I swear it! I would never say those things about myself! I am both offended and upset! I contacted an admin/mod on this. I hope they can see the edit history on it or something...
If you look at the talk page about the corpses safe to eat issue, you'll notice I suggested something about the monster template. Tjr thought it is an exelent idea so we took this matter over to the talk page. now it's become quite a suggestion. Click on the link to look that the page.
Some of my random ideas while playing. Have more, in my notes, soon as I can find them. Who knows. Maybe I'll write a patch some day.
- 1 Dungeon
- 2 Scrolls
- 3 #burn
- 4 Poor Man's Scrolls
- 5 Wands
- 5.1 Light
- 6 Staves
- 6.1 Naming
- 6.2 Engraving
- Scroll of light, blessed. Enchants a random piece of armor with 'lit' such that it gives off light as a candle. Stacks as though a number of candles, where a full set would create three squares of light.
- Scroll of fire, confused. Cursed makes a hostile fire-loving monster. Uncursed makes a peaceful fire-loving monster. Blessed makes a tame fire-loving monster.
#burn command, to turn cloth items into a torch and provide a clue as to what it is, for certain types. Otherwise just makes finding a light source much less annoying for t…
Made of dirt.
Furry looking, but with metal caps on H ends.
Reflective looking blue (shiny)
Furry, possibly leather looking.
Leather looking, but grayscale.
Brown and slimy looking.
Blue, electric look.
All of this assuming it'd actually let me set it for every last item, and isn't terribly limited in color selection. Think I can do better than most of those...
You see here a blessed scroll labeled SEIROMEM DONF.
I've been playing NetHack for quite some time. Eight years, off and on, and indeed, the game is still yet older than I am. In fact, my first play was when I was only ten (or so) years old—at the time, I almost always starved to death, and could never seem to get past the first dungeon level. I was young, and at the time, had never seen a console program. I was still only just entering the grand field of computers, and had much to learn. I read the guidebook, but to no avail. I just could not figure a way, for the life of me, to get down the stairs. As I learned some five years later, after I had given up, NetHack is case sensitive. I pounded , desperate for my character's life, and in vai…
Well, so far this is the best game I've had, I have like 4 wands , 2 stolen from a shop, 2 kittens, Ellinis and Fellinip. I found some leather armor and gloves. I got tones of money, I actually found 101 on the ground. If you want to watch me I'm actually playing right now.
