Strategy

Beware the y key! Not only does it move northwest, it also answers "yes" to questions like "Eat the cockatrice corpse?" Woe betide careless players who hold down the y key and meet a powerful peaceful monster to their northwest. This is especially troublesome in Minetown. Some game binaries are compiled with paranoid_hit, an option which requires you to type "yes" to answer such questions in the affirmative.

SLASH'EM

While SLASH'EM introduced no new creatures using y or Y, the z zruty has had its glyph changed to a Y.
