Heroic Fisticuffs!

Here's a place where I talk about games, applications, websites, and other things that I make for fun. Mostly roguelikes. And pirates. And robots. Since my domain is hard to spell you probably came here on purpose.

Why I Love Nethack

My current game is a great example of why I love nethack. I am playing a healer and I have had really horrible luck with pets dying. What I needed was something... more powerful. Something that could eat those pesky shopkeepers and cross-aligned priests so that I can convert their stupid altars. 

Luckily, I found a polymorph trap. Since I don't yet have magic resistance this was a lucky find (last time I literally stumbled into it and turned into a queen bee for about 600 turns). As I have yet to find a magic whistle, leash, or any way of controlling my pet, I constructed a rather useful fort of boulders...

The greatest part? This was after only my first try.
