The following command descriptions are listed as the command name plus the "underlying command" key. This is followed by the command name and "roguelike" keyset key in itallics, if different from the underlying command key.
Some commands use the "repeat count" to automatically repeat the command several times, while others use the "repeat count" to specify a "quantity" for the command, and still others use it as an "argument" of some kind. Some commands are auto-repeated several times if no repeat count is given and the "always_repeat" option is set.
Most commands take no "energy" to perform, while most other commands only take energy when they cause the world to change in some way.
- Inventory list (i)
- Equipment list (e)
- Drop an item (d)
- Destroy an item (k) or Destroy an item (^D)
This destroys an item in your inventory or on the dungeon floor. If the selected pile contains multiple objects, you may specify a quantity. You must always (currently) verify this command. This command may take a quantity, and takes some energy.
- Wear/Wield equipment (w)
To wear or wield an object in your inventory, use this command. Since only one object can be in each slot at a time, if you wear or wield an item into a slot which is already occupied, the old item will be first be taken off, and may in fact be dropped if there is no room for it in your inventory. This command takes some energy.
- Take off equipment (t) or Take off equipment (T)
Use this command to take off a piece of equipment and return it to your inventory. Occasionally, you will run into a cursed item which cannot be removed. These items normally penalize you in some way and cannot be taken off until the curse is removed. If there is no room in your inventory for the item, your pack will overflow and you will drop the item after taking it off. This command takes some energy.
