|I'm not the world's best NetHacker far from it but by persevering and taking a few liberties, I've managed to achieve Apotheosis of a sort. So can you! But if you're just starting out it can be overwhelming. If you've reached an impasse, it can be frustrating. And toward the end of the game, it's easy to start wondering whether there is any end to the Dungeons.|
|This website is an attempt to help other NetHackers by putting online what information I've gathered through far too many hours of adventuring. It began as my personal reference, an expanded version of the NetHack documentation, packed with personal notes, tips, and secrets. But (as you can see) it got out of hand.|

Sorry about the half-formatted content, broken links, and so on. Turning a Windows Help file into HTML isn't as easy as you'd guess. I'm spending lunchtimes and evenings trying to get it in shape!

|Put on your spectacles and||read the Guestbook, or|

Oh, my armor's rusted solid, and my god has turned His back
I have no useful intrinsics and all my stuff is cursed
I was turned into a wererat, I'm hallucinating too
This game just drives me crazy; I know I cannot win
