ROGUE(6)							      ROGUE(6)

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
       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.
