I have always known this level by the name Ghost Town. A quick Google search (nethack "ghost town" versus nethack "orcus town"; 1110 hits vs 168 hits) suggests that this form is infact more popular. I think this article should be moved. --ZeroOne 00:01, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

A general google search is misleading - look a few pages into those results and you'll see most references aren't to do with nethack's ghost town. A search restricted to RGRN favours Orcus town over ghost-town. For me, the kicker is that Dylan O'Donnell calls it Orcus-town in his spoiler, and I prefer to defer to his authority in all things nethack :) I'll add a redirect from Ghost town though, since a fair few people do indeed call it that. --Jayt 18:13, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
Ah, but see the gehennom.des file! It clearly says "ghost town" in the comment there. --ZeroOne 21:07, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Naming Issues

Is it Orcus Town, Orcustown or Orcus-Town? The wiki sometimes is not clear on this...
