NetHack 3.4 Spoilers

This site contains, for the most part, spoiler files for NetHack that I have either written or updated to 3.4.3. Most of this is plaintext; if you really want HTML versions, then Kate Nepveu's site has them, and much other good stuff as well.

Currently here you can find the following:

Other Spoilers

And spoilers updated from the 3.1.3 originals of Topi Linkala and Boudewijn Waijers:

crwn-343.txt Crowning and its consequences
stat-343.txt Starting attributes
time-343.txt The effects of real-world time, date and moon phase

Legal bit: Please observe that certain conditions apply to the archiving and distribution of those of these spoilers that were originally compiled by Kevin Hugo, by Boudewijn Waijers, or by me. Other spoilers for which I am not aware of the conditions, I have chosen to treat as if under an implicit license that is broadly equivalent; I make no guarantee as to whether this is actually the case.

A Gazetteer of NetHack 3.4 FAQ

The Frequently Asked Questions file for rgrn, compiled by Stephen Churchill and now maintained by me. Reading it before posting to rgrn is a Good Idea.

Archived spoiler collections

These tarballs are, or should be, generated automatically every day. Let me know if something appears broken about them. Note that they're largish files, so please don't download them if you don't really need them for offline reference; in particular, please don't download them on an automated basis. My bandwidth isn't infinite.
