       rogue - Exploring The Dungeons of Doom

       /usr/games/rogue [ -r ] [ save_file ] [ -s ] [ -d ]

       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

       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)  man-
       age  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.   If
       the -r option is used, the save game file is presumed to be the default.

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

       The -d option will kill you and try to add you to the score file.

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

       Probably  infinite  (although  countably  infinite).  However, that Ice Monsters sometimes
       transfix you permanently is not a bug.  It's a feature.
