Mazes of Menace

From NetHackWiki
(Redirected from Branches)
Jump to: navigation, search

The Mazes of Menace is the collective name for all the levels in the game. They can contain up to 81 levels, but not all will be present in every game.

Map

This diagram shows which dungeon levels the various special levels and branches can appear on. A branch is signified with a --. The Dungeons of Doom and Gehennom are technically branches, but appear contiguously as the main branch of the game.

Also note that, although they are not special levels per se, any levels between Medusa and The Castle have a 4/5 probability of being Mazes.

Interdependence

Whenever there are several possibilities for the length of a branch, the depth of a branch entrance, or a special level, they are

  • measured from the top of the parent branch,
  • are equally likely,
  • are independent of all the other choices made in this graph.

Exceptions are:

Each level can be special in at most one way, and (additionally) host at most one branch entrance. For example, this means the stairs to Vlad's Tower can be located on any special level except Juiblex' swamp and both Fake Wizard's Towers.

UnNetHack

UnNetHack adds to the dungeon with new dungeon branches as well amid some other minor tweaks. As of the 5.1.0 release these include the Nymph Level, the Ruins of Moria, an improved black market, the Town branch, the Dragon Caves, and the Icy Sheol.

SLASH'EM

The layout of the Mazes of Menace differs significantly in SLASH'EM due to an expanded Dungeons of Doom, a shortened Gehennom, and many new dungeon branches.
