Hello, welcome to NetHackWiki!
The Tourist is one of the roles in NetHack. Since the Tourist has low starting stats and can only reach Expert in three weapons, running a Tourist is quite the challenge. Tourists always start as a neutral human in NetHack. In SLASH'EM, Tourists may also be Doppelganger or Hobbit.
The guidebook has this to say about tourists:
Tourists start out with lots of gold (suitable for shopping with), a credit card, lots of food, some maps, and an expensive camera. Most monsters don't like being photographed.
