Hello, I got to this swamp or water level and I can't figure out what I am supposed to do. There is a structure in the middle with no doors. There is no stairway down to the next level. I could sure use a clue if someone has one. I am using NetHack version 3.4.3 on UNIX. I am going to try to embed a file with a snap of the level (my first post so don't know how the embed thing will go).

(I fixed the file link for you. Please also remember to sign your edits.)
That is Medusa's Island; see that article for more information. (There are secret doors. The article has a map including them. Be careful with eels.)
Out of curiosity: you're using it on UNIX, you say; why did you upload a screen capture of the level in a Windows text editor, then? —bcode talk | mail 17:58, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the file thing, I'll work on the sig also. I am probably one of the few Solaris nethack players around. I'm on a PC and SSH'd into a really big Oracle server. I snaped the pic with Snagit on the PC. It was a .txt file first because I tried to upload that, then found that the Wiki wanted an image. Been playing various versions of Hack, Nethack and Omega on UNIX for many years, still fun. --Beerpilot (talk) 18:06, 29 November 2012 (UTC)BeerPilot

FWIW, you can include text directly into the page, using 1-space indents to make it "preformatted":
like this;
this will use a monospaced font.
(There are also ttymaps, but these require some work to specify all the colors.) —bcode talk | mail 18:11, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
