I think this page should have links to the individual pages for all of the role quests, e.g. the Valkyrie quest. Maybe we could put them in the table of Quest leaders and Nemeses, possibly replacing the links to the role pages. Maybe they could go in their own table/section, though it might be awkward that way. I could just make the changes myself, but I thought it would be good to get input from the community. Thoughts? (Dis)Approval? --Andronikus 17:57, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Absolutely. The role links are what I first clicked on when I wanted the quest articles, and I still don't know how anyone is supposed to be linked to them.--Afterward 00:36, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, that's pretty much why I thought of this, there should definitely be one page with links to all the quests. I'll implement it tomorrow if no one gets to it first.--Andronikus 01:08, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Killing your quest leader

This page should describe the consequences of killing your quest leader (before and after going on the quest). Supermagle 19:29, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Returning to quest after completion

In my current game, I've finished the quest for my first time (and I've been playing far too long for this to be excusable). Once you've left the quest, can you return to it? I'm dreading the loot management that will be required if you cannot. 81.111.7.3 18:30, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

As long as you don't provoke your Quest leader to boot you out, you can come back as many times as you like.--Ray Chason 00:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Quest Difficulty Stats

I know there's a link to the nethack.alt.org page on that section already, but I'm very interested in where those numbers come from - is there some link on that page (other than the top deaths page) that I'm missing? Thanks, --Chessnuts (talk) 02:36, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Like most NAO-based statistics, they're determined via running searches on the xlogfile. If you want to do simple searches, Rodney on IRC has a copy of the xlogfile, and will do statistics on it for you. If you want something more difficult, you can ask someone with a copy of the xlogfile (like me) to provide the statistics for you. Ais523 (talk) 02:53, 3 January 2014 (UTC)


Going Back Down

Note that you will not be allowed to descend the staircase again after returning from a successful quest. This is important to know if you return with more loot than you can carry up the stairs in one go.

I just managed to go down the staircase again after returning with bell+quest artifact and talking to the quest leader (as a priest, nao patchset). Are there maybe some more specific conditions when this happens?

As far as I know that's just a complete fabrication. Wooble (talk) 16:43, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
