NetHack-- 3.0.10

Jump to: navigation, search

NetHack-- 3.0.10 (which was briefly called NetHack++ 3.0.10) is a variant of NetHack 3.0.10, significant as the earliest ancestor of SLASH'EM that is distinct from vanilla NetHack. Yuval Oren and Tom Proudfoot announced it in this post to rec.games.hack in December 1992.

Availability

The original version of NetHack++ 3.0.10 is this post to rec.games.hack, which bears a patch against the NetHack 3.0.10 sources. The patch has some difficulty applying to the sources linked from the NetHack 3.0.10 article, mainly because of whitespace that doesn't match.

A slightly updated version, now renamed NetHack-- to avoid the impression that the C++ language was used in any way, is available at [1]. This ZIP file was probably bundled on an MS-DOS machine, because the files in it have uppercase letters.

Significant changes

NetHack-- 3.0.10 adds new roles, new monsters, new objects, and new dungeon features to NetHack 3.0.10.

The adventurer

The player may choose from these roles; roles not present in NetHack 3.0.10 are noted in boldface.

Role Alignment
Archeologist Lawful
Barbarian Chaotic
Cave-(wo)man Lawful
Drunk Neutral
Elf Lawful
Firefighter Lawful
Geek Neutral
Healer Lawful
Knight Lawful
Locksmith Neutral
Musician Neutral
Ninja Chaotic
Officer Lawful
Priest(ess) Neutral
Rogue Chaotic
Samurai Lawful
Tourist Neutral
Undertaker Neutral
Valkyrie Chaotic
Wizard Neutral
Zookeeper Lawful

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, a kitten for Wizards, and a random choice of the two for all others.

Dungeon features

The dungeon in NetHack-- 3.0.10 has no branches; there is one way up and one way down. The first 25 levels or so consist of rooms, and beyond that, the adventurer encounters the Castle and then mazes. The deepest dungeon level is 50.

Medusa appears as @ on the down-stairs of the level before the Castle. She does not have a special level, and is thus a snare for the unwary adventurer.

Dungeon levels below the Castle are designated as "Hell". Entering hell without fire resistance, or losing it once there, is an instadeath. This may happen by taking off an item that confers fire resistance (ring of fire resistance or red dragon scale mail), losing one's polymorph, or by being hit by a gremlin. One may still be saved if he has some other source of fire resistance. These levels have only up-stairs, and the only way to proceed beyond the first level after the Castle is by level teleportation.

Special rooms are, with those not present in NetHack 3.0.10 in boldface:

Special dungeon features are: (all are present in NetHack 3.0.10)

Traps are: (all are present in NetHack 3.0.10)

The Amulet of Yendor is found in the posession of the Wizard of Yendor in a maze level. He is in a small room in the center of the maze, surrounded by water and accompanied by a hell hound and a vampire lord.

Fake Wizard rooms contain a random demon prince instead of the Wizard and a fake Amulet. If all demon princes have appeared, a demon lord appears instead; if all demon lords have appeared, the room contains a random ordinary demon. All eight modern named demons exist, but their modern lairs do not.

A wand of wishing is guaranteed in the Castle, in its modern position; but it lies exposed on the floor instead of being protected by a chest and Elbereth.

When ascending from level 1 with the Amulet of Yendor, one is transported immediately to the Astral Plane; the Elemental Planes do not yet exist. The Astral Plane is different from the modern game, having mazes and powerful monsters instead of the denizens of the modern version.
