How do you like to play NetHack?

I Just thought it would be fun to have a topic like this.
List Whether you play on ASCII, Tiles, Online, etc. and your preferred role-race-gender-alignment.

I personally like to Be a male knight on QTNetHack. (I'm on a mac) I've only gotten over 20,000 points once, probably because I've only been playing for a year.

My very first games of NetHack were locally, on a tiles Win32 build. These days I only play tty and on public servers (I think it's a blast to find other people's bones, for one thing.)

I'll play any role. I like Arc and Tou for challenge. Wiz is, I think, the most fun all-around role, though. You have an interesting early game, a mid-game that varies somewhat depending on your equipment and spells, and a very fast late game. Since the late game (up until the ascension run) is the most boring part of the game, being able to race through it is a positive.

Race and alignment I just let the RNG pick.

Gender is always Fem, although it doesn't really matter much for game play.

I like playing with ASCII graphics. Didn't much care for vulture's eye or whatever it's called. As for role/race/alignment I've ascended the most with orcish male barbarians.
