DescriptionAdds a new, challenging Convict role
 This patch adds a new role to NetHack: the Convict. The Convict is an
escaped prisoner who seeks to redeem himself by seeking the Amulet in
the Dungeons of Doom. They start out with a striped shirt, some rocks,
and heavy iron ball chained to them. A trusty sewer rat accompanies
the Convict into the dungeon: a companion from his days of
imprisonment.

Race: Human, Dwarf, Gnome, or Orc
Alignment: Chaotic
Deity: Tymora (Forgotten Realms)

Spoiler information, if desired, can be found in the included README-convict.txt file.

Can, as most of these can, be added to slashem if you look at the unchanged lines as a reference and change/add the lines in the right place.

This patch (might) actually work now that WARDEN_ARIANNA actually is a VALID monster (changed locations in monst.c <different location in slashem than nethack>)

BUT there are NO replacing walls/doors/etc with iron bars at all in this patch!

BTW
the rat can be switch-places with (right phrase?) ONLY if you are no longer wearing the ball and chain[Quote]

why doesn't this patch work? I hand coded it into slashem taking into account the differences in code lines (etc) but the quest can NOT be entered. any guess as to why?


maybe this will eventually work, I also don't get random bars.... maybe this version is the old version?[Quote]

Huh. I'll take a look at that and see if I can figure it out.[Quote]

This role is breathtakingly fun and difficult. Only for experts; intimate knowledge of weapons system and a huge dollop of good luck necessary. The attention to detail in the interactions and the like around the dungeons very well done, I like it. The rat is kind of annoying; never gets out of the way.

Highly recommend this patch. Once you've worked your way through all the other ascensions, this one is real icing on the cake.[Quote]
