GnollHack is a variant of NetHack 3.6.2 developed by Sound Mind Games, a Finnish nonprofit organization. It adds numerous monsters and items, changes spellcasting, and adds Gnolls as a playable race (replacing Gnomes).

GnollHack has a forum here. It also has an official wiki. This is a useful page for some initial pointers to the variant if you're well-versed in regular NetHack.

Tips

  • You can get information about items by using #examine, or Alt+x. If the item is formally identified, it will describe its effect.
  • Note that the cost for temple protection ("major contribution") changed: instead of 400*XL, it's now 2500 + 150*XL.
  • Mummy rot is a fatal illness. The message when you're afflicted is "You feel severely ill." (so that's what you want to configure MSGTYPE for).
  • There are no ability exercise or abuse. If you want higher attributes than you started with, you'll have to alchemize gain ability yourself. For Int/Wis, you can also use blessed enlightenment, which can be made from fountains of power.
