    [Let's Play] NetHack 3.6.1

    AND SO IT CAME TO PASS that I found myself re-reading KoboldLord's old Let's Play SporkHack thread. AND LO did it rekindle my interest in NetHack. Which pretty much catches us all up on relevant current events. If you have never read that thread, and if you like NetHack and its variants, that...

    Roguelike / Nethack: WtF is the dog for?!

    My introduction to fantasy gaming (and PC gaming of any kind) was playing Rogue on a 386 desktop. Later, I discovered other Rogue-likes and I still come back to them every now and then; recently I started a Nethack game on my phone, playing a couple minutes every other day or so. My troglodyte...

    NetHack 3.6.0: It lives

    Say what you will about variants of this game or other rogue-likes, but I always have a special place in my heart for NetHack. It's an awesome game, and accessible to the blind, which is rare enough to be worthy of mention. It's been developed almost continuously for years, but only sees fit to...

    (Let's Play!) Slash'EM Extended, a NetHack fork

    Welcome to Let's Play Slash'EM Extended! My name is Amy, first poster here, and I chose the nickname "bluescreenofdeath" because that's what my PC is giving me for using it too much :D. What I want to do here is show off a fork of the classic roguelike NetHack, which is known to be a very hard...

    [NetHack] So... I think I'm screwed. Any advice?

    I'm wishless and genoless so far, but I'm willing to break them if it would help - I still have the castle wand and there's a blessed scroll of genocide in my stash on DL2. In the lead up to the Ascension Run, everything seemed to be going well. I was an Invincible Orcish Sword Princess with...

    Let's play Nethack! DYWYPI? [ynq] (n)

    I'm not the first to do a LP on Nethack and I hope I won't be the last, although as near as I can tell it's been about 6 months since the last Nethack thread ended, and its high time for another one. Netlack LP's on this very forum as well as some others were how I first learned about the game...

    [Let's Play] NetHack or How I Earned My First Million Zorkmids

    Part 1 - Out with the old So, the Dungeons of Doom, huh? The doorway doesn't look all that bad. I guess I'm as prepared as I'll ever be. Rations? Check. Magical armour and weapons? Check. Detailed maps from escaped explorers? Check. An instant rune of return back to base? Check. I've been...

    How the hell do I stop sucking at NetHack?

    I mean I'm aware that half the fun of NetHack is supposed to be how challenging and unforgiving it can be, but I'm seriously sucking here. Most of my characters are lucky to make it to the orc mines, and the only one who survived deeper than that was killed by gnomes almost instantly. I clear...

    Let's Play Nethack- If at first you don't succeed...

    Die, die and die again. But seriously, I've been interested in Nethack for some time now, despite the fact I have never played it. I would have except looking at ASCII for any prolonged period of time causes my eyes to seize up, gain a malevolent sapience and devour their way out of my head...

    [Let's play] Nethack: The life and (many, many) deaths of a Noob.

    Well, here goes! Time to share my hopefully amusing forays into the dungeons of Nethack with you guys. Some have recommended that I not play a wizard, due to how squishy they are. Still, I figure that at least I know how to play it, and if I die horribly... well, my pain is your joy. :D So...

    [NetHack] Questions, questions, we have questions

    Well, just one for now, really. But perhaps more later. Is there any way I can check the health and status of my pet?

    [Campaign Musings] Nethack inspired Fantasy Trip

    I've been considering the possibility of running a Fantasy Trip campaign using Google Wave, but I've been having trouble thinking up a hook for it. Now it occurs to me that I might have found one. The other day I found a copy of Nethack on my old computer, and was compelled to play a few...

    (Let's Play!) Sporkhack

    Nethack is a classic roguelike game, probably one of the most popular activities for bored tech geeks ever, not counting looking at porn. The last official update by the startlingly prescient DevTeam was in 2003, and since then a number of other individuals have made modifications to the open...

    [Let's Play] NetHack (spoiled to the bone)

    Yeah, let's. The recent roguelike discussions re-spurred my interest in NetHack, so I figured we could chillax and have some characters brutally killed in it. Maybe even ascend one or two - I've done it once before. Dude, what's NetHack? You were recently thawed out of ice from the Arctic...

    [NetHack] Suggest some non-spoilery strategies, por favor!

    So, after many years of "Yeah, I'll download that someday, 'cause I know I'll dig it," I finally got around to downloading NetHack. And now I'm looking for some general strategy and advice. I think that, primarily, I'm looking for tips on when is the best time to start searching for hidden...

    ISTKO: Nethack (Matchews, this means you!)

    Yes, I know this isn't Tangency, but ISOGOKO looks really stupid (see?) and people might not know what it was. Anyway, I'd like to know if there's any way to train my pet to not mindlessly kill things that aren't me or shopkeepers. I'm tired of Squip thacking gnomes (I AM a gnome, you stupid...
