NetHack Versions


NetHack 3.1.3 is the 19th public release of NetHack and the 15th by the DevTeam. Izchak Miller published it to the Usenet newsgroup comp.sources.games and the moderator approved it in July 1993.

Availability

The original Usenet postings are most easily obtained from UUNet at [1]. The part*.Z files in that directory are NetHack 3.1.0; patch*.Z files are the patches for succeeding versions through NetHack 3.1.3.

Ali Harlow[2] has a NetHack 3.1.3 distribution at [3].

Significant changes

NetHack 3.1.3 is principally a bug-fix release.

Notable changes in NetHack 3.1.3 are:

  • The Amiga and Mac ports are further polished.
  • Black, gray, and white intensities on the MS-DOS versions are adjusted. New video options are added.
  • Many bug fixes.

The adventurer

The player may choose from these roles:

Role Alignment
Archeologist Lawful
Barbarian Neutral
Cave(wo)man Lawful
Elf Chaotic
Healer Neutral
Knight Lawful
Priest(ess) Random
Rogue Chaotic
Samurai Lawful
Tourist Neutral
Valkyrie Neutral
Wizard Neutral

All classes permit male and female adventurers, except the Valkyrie which must be female.

The adventurer has experience, hit points, magical energy, armor class, alignment, and the six major attributes. He may advance to experience level 30.

The initial pet is a little dog for Cavemen and Samurai, a kitten for Wizards, and a random choice of the two (or the user's choice in his options) for all others.

Dungeon features

The main trunk of the dungeon begins at level 1, where the game begins, and proceeds down stairs to Medusa's Lair and the Castle. From there, it is necessary to enter a trap door to the Valley of the Dead. Further stairs down eventually lead to the invocation level. Performing the invocation ritual at the vibrating square opens the stairs to the Sanctum.

With the Amulet of Yendor in hand, the adventurer may ascend from level 1 into the Plane of Earth; thence s/he may proceed through magic portals to the planes of Air, Fire, and Water, and thence to the Astral Plane. Offering the Amulet of Yendor on the correct high altar wins the game.

Along the way, one will encounter these branches and special levels:

To win the game, it is necessary to complete these tasks:

  • Escape from the dungeon.

Special rooms are:

Special dungeon features are:

Traps are:

A wand of wishing is guaranteed in the Castle, in its modern position, and protected by Elbereth, but not tucked inside a chest.
