Hello, and welcome to the Hardfought NetHack server website. The original ‘vanilla’ NetHack is hosted here (latest developmental codebase, along with a couple older versions), as well as several popular NetHack variants. To learn more about how to play the games hosted here, visit the ‘NetHack’ link up above in the menu bar.
Hardfought wasn’t always about NetHack – it started out over 20 years ago as a Quake/CounterStrike server and has evolved a few times since then. You can read up on the history of this server here. Old news posts can be viewed by visiting the archives page, and thousands of past discussions can still be found over at the old forums.
