The /dev/null/nethack tournament will be ending in 10 minutes as I start writing this (it will probably be over by the time I'm done. Despite having to take a lot of time off to rest my hands, deal with life stuff, and for other reasons, I managed to meet my goals for the tournament!

Overall, I had a great time playing in the tournament, both NetHack and ZAPM. Now it's time to return to trying to ascend all 13 roles over on NAO.

TLDR: Unknown challenge this year was really cool.

Below contains spoilers for someone who doesn't want to know what the challenge is until they come across it for themselves, but no spoilers for nethack in general or for participants in the challenge. I think it's potentially interesting for people not participating in the tournament.

The /dev/null/nethack tournament started last night at midnight, Pacific Time. I plan to compete, with the knowledge that I may need to take it easy/stop for the sake of my arms.

Last year I picked up a Dilithium Star and the Grue Challenge Trophy. My goals for this year are to get the new Challenge Trophy and at least a Birdie. I may also go after the Pac-Man Challenge, which I wasn't able to complete last year, but I think I'll probably skip the KoL Challenge in favor of playing nethack. Since I completed it last year, I think I'm going to decline the Grue Challenge this year.

The tournament is a lot of fun, and I encourage anybody who enjoys nethack to give it a try. The star awards exist to provide goals even for fairly new players.
