I discovered ROGUE on a MassComp UNIX box (MC Rogue - there were many flavors) in the late 1970's and it is the actual for real genuine inspiration for my buying my first computer. And my first software purchase (DOS came w/PC) was Epyx Rogue. It took me five years to finally win.

I had a rather long tome about the advances in the versions (Descedent) I now play:
Stone Soup's Dungeon Crawl 25.1
[^] - this is the google search as there's so many entry points into how you'd start to see where it's gone.

You can chose to be one of 26 species, with one of 27 vocations and, if not assigned by either of the first two choices, one of 25 gods to worship (and their pros and cons). The last of these is only done if you can find the appropriate altar to that god.

Beware of spoilers, but if you wanted a descent description of the current status, there's the Crawl Wiki.[^] I play on my local machine (download) but it can also be played through your browser.

One tends to prefer a character with their own hopes, dreams and aspirations:   thus, I am a Demon Spawn Berserker who follows Trog. Every choice, even when you start the game, has consequences. Amazingly diverting . . . and relaxing.
