Yes, I agree that dying is an important part of NetHack. It is actually very cathartic. As I build a character and accumulate equipment, the game gets more and more tense. Then, it is time to start fresh because my character is dead. Almost a relief sometimes... SOMETIMES! Seeing as how there exists the AOLS, resurrection is not entire out of line with the spirit of the game. It is possible, j

Stupid Mumak death. I am standing on the stairs in Delphi waiting for my damn cat to show up and a Mumak spawns and butts me. One hit kill. I die. And recently, my most successful run to date comes to a stupid end when I reach the Big Room. Knowing full well that I should not get in over my head I am standing on the stairs slapping fools with a cockatrice. Then, a Wraith steps up and steals an

I have yet to find a way to use the arrow keys. It involves some wild key mapping as far as I can tell. You can access the nethack.alt.org configurations in-game by typing a capital 'O' (or from the main menu, but then it opens in vi, using vi is harder than using hjkl). There is a toggle for the number_pad. Default is '1' or on. Turning this off makes the 'k' and 'j' keys (and others) act as ded

I would love to see some savepoint/resurrection checkpoints. Perhaps the Oracle offers to resurrect you for a price. Of course this would need to be penalized in terms of points. Maybe your total points are reduced by 10% every time you use resurrection (excluding the use of the amulet of life saving). And maybe these resurrection checkpoints are limited. Perhaps: 1) The Oracle. 2) A co-al

I have yet to survive BOTH Sokoban AND Mine's End. I have never made it to the quest and I am a long way from EVER Ascending. One look at the top ten on nethack.alt.org tells me that there are a LOT of far more experienced players on here. I could use some advice. I am thoroughly spoiled, but I still seem to consistently have bad ideas and behave recklessly. The result is always YASD. So I wou

I too have never ascended, so I play a Samurai every game to try to improve. I was playing Valkyries for a while for the same reason. Not sure why I switched... Probably for Expert in #TWOWEAPON. I do think I might try Monks for a while to have a little extra help from spells. Too many YASDs on lvl 12 or in the mines. polymorph trap = <3 .:f:.

I have been killed by a pony twice. Both times I was probably trying to tame it or avoid it to tame later. Kittens have that effect on me too. It can be very hard to kill a kitten. I just kill ponies and kittens outright now. I live longer. Also, I tend to forget to pray in critical moments and get killed while fainting or surrounded by ponies. This is only my third month playing, so i a
