The file ~/.larnopts may be used to set a few options for larn. A sequence of words terminated by whitespace is used to specify options. Word Meaning bold-objects Select bold display of objects. inverse-objects Select inverse video display of objects. no-introduction Do not display intro message. enable-checkpointing Turn on periodic checkpointing. no-beep Disable beeping of the terminal. male Choose your sex to be a man. female Choose your sex to be a woman. name: ``your name'' Choose your playing name. monster: ``monst name'' Choose a name for a monster. savefile: ``save-file-name'' Define what the savegame filename will be. Your name and monster names must be enclosed in double quotation marks and may be up to 34 characters long. Longer names are truncated. Anything enclosed in quotation marks is considered one word, and must be separated from other words by whitespace. SPECIAL NOTES
When dropping gold, if you type '*' as your amount, all your gold gets dropped. In general, typing in '*' means all of what you are inter- ested in. This is true when visiting the bank, or when contributing at altars. You can get out of the store, trading post, school, or home by hitting <esc>. When casting a spell, if you need a list of spells you can cast, type D as the first letter of your spell. The available list of spells will be shown, after which you may enter the spell code. This only works on the 1st letter of the spell you are casting. FILES

NAME
rogue - Exploring The Dungeons of Doom SYNOPSIS
/usr/games/rogue [ -r ] [ save_file ] [ -s ] [ -d ] 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 mon- sters 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 his- tory 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. If the -r option is used, the save game file is pre- sumed 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. AUTHORS

Probably infinite (although countably infinite). However, that Ice Monsters sometimes transfix you permanently is not a bug. It's a fea- ture. 4th Berkeley Distribution May 6, 1986 ROGUE(6)
