ascension.run was a public NetHack server retired since 2021. The server is currently hosted by deepy and administered by kerio, though the domain belongs to Adeon. A successor to acehack.de, the server was originally named nethack.xd.cm but was renamed to nethack.dank.ninja, because xd.cm just wasn't dank enough. Then someone discovered that the domain name ascension.run was available.
Things it used to host:
- NAOHack (3.4.3)
- NetHack Fourk
nethack.dank.ninja has been known as nethack.xd.cm in the past, acehack.de before that, and originally acehack.eu. Nethack.xd.cm hosted the following games:
It also previously hosted Slash'EM Extended, but this was removed after the variant began to deliberately implement Evil Patch Ideas and the Evil Variant Sokoban levels.
Acehack.de hosted the following games:
- Slash'EM Extended
- nethack 1.3d (for the length of Junethack 2014)
Although the site has made some questionable design decisions in the past, the current appearance is quite conservative and unlikely to offend anyone.
