NAME

     rogue — exploring The Dungeons of Doom

SYNOPSIS

     rogue [-s] [save_file]

DESCRIPTION

     rogue is a computer fantasy game with a new twist.  It is CRT oriented and the object of the
     game is to survive the attacks of various monsters and get a lot of gold, rather than the
     puzzle solving orientation of most computer fantasy games.

     To get started you really only need to know two commands.  The command ? will give you a
     list of the available commands and the command / will identify the things you see on the
     screen.

     To win the game (as opposed to merely playing to beat other people's high scores) you must
     locate the Amulet of Yendor which is somewhere below the 20th level of the dungeon and get
     it out.  Nobody has achieved this yet and if somebody does, they will probably go down in
     history as a hero among heroes.

     When the game ends, either by your death, when you quit, or if you (by some miracle) manage
     to win, rogue will give you a list of the top-ten scorers.  The scoring is based entirely
     upon how much gold you get.  There is a 10% penalty for getting yourself killed.

     If save_file is specified, rogue will be restored from the specified saved game file.

     The -s option will print out the list of scores.

     For more detailed directions, read the document A Guide to the Dungeons of Doom.

BUGS

     Probably infinite, although none are known.  However, that Ice Monsters sometimes transfix
     you permanently is not a bug.  It's a feature.
