<bhaak> NAO can be rebuilt, Amazon shouldn't
<aosdict> we can rebuild NAO. we have the technology. we have the capability to make the world's first true distributed nethack server. NAO will be that server. Better than it was before.

<Looksfar> I just named Sting, and was surprised when a couple of elves showed up to claim it. I don't mind giving it up, but since I'm chaotic, if I defend myself against them and kill them, is that abusing my alignment?
<qt> actually i bet that does abuse your alignment
<qt> because they are generated peaceful, then peaceful is just set to 0
<Looksfar> Nuts. And no way to give it up peacefully?
<Looksfar> I'm not sure if there is a way to give it up. If there is, it's not obvious.
<qt> remember in the hobbit how bilbo named his dagger 'sting' and then a bunch of elves jumped out and decapitated him
<Looksfar> ...no?
<qt> i guess that was only in the secret director's cut

<Announcy> NetHack GitHub Commits: refine "next boulder" https://github.com/NetHack/NetHack/commit/3a0f1bb1aa7f59b8fab8538de5193f5d454414a5
<nhmall> october is "month of the boulder" it seems
<aosdict> hmm
<aosdict> not very thematic
<aosdict> you show kids a boulder on halloween, they won't be impressed
<qt> you're right, it would be way better for easter.
<qt> With great effort, you move the boulder from the tomb. You try to move the next boulder, but in vain.

<qt> i wonder why the devteam doesn't seem interested that type-naming your scrolls correctly is disincentivized
<qt> i'm reminded of it regularly bc in sokoban I always try and fail to come up with a way to spell 'earth' wrong that is still recognizable (like 'tele' or 'id')
<amateurhour> ear
<qt> sounds like a scroll that makes your ears bigger
<qt> if cursed it makes your ears smaller

<spicyChickatrice> nao: it's like a flip phone
