NetHack: The Next Generation, a variant of NetHack 3.1.3, added a large number of items. Many of these have been incorporated into other variants (Slash'EM Extended and SLASHTHEM). One item, the "ring of health", later appeared in mainstream NetHack (starting in 3.3.0) as the ring of gain constitution.
