An ugly backpack is a container in SlashTHEM, which forms part of the starting inventory of the Graduate role. The Slash'EM Extended Graduate starts with a sack instead.

The ugly backpack is mostly equivalent to a sack, though it is more valuable than one, with a base price of 50 zm, compared to the sack's price of 2 zm. It is not randomly generated.

The item comes from the Geek role in NetHack-- 3.0.10, not to be confused with the Geek role in NetHack: The Next Generation. NetHack-- was a precursor to SLASH'EM.


The Goff quest artifact, the Goffic Backpack, is an ugly backpack in SlashTHEM, instead of a sack.
