I'm playing with an idea for a fanfic in which a very old computer game plays setting and central role. It was originally made in 1980 (seriously), and it's titled Rogue: The Adventure Game. The object is to climb down a randomly created Dungeon of Doom and snatch the Amulet of Yendor . . . without dying. Although I've been trying, off and on, for fifteen years (not kidding), I've never beaten this game. The farthest I've ever gotten is Level 18. Bloody ur-viles.
I need some details on what the mazes are like in the lower levels and how to beat some of the beasts (like Dragons). Also, after getting the Amulet of Yendor do you have to climb all the way back out?
Thanks in advance,
