My character keeps jumping around in NetHack. Why?

I’ve spent quite a while on my NetHack game (for me), and I’ve managed to get up a few levels. However, my character has (annoyingly) started to randomly jump around to different parts of the level – which is both a blessing and a curse.

Why does this happen?

  • Why do I stop eating corpses? Should I keep eating them anyway?
  • How do I hoard items effectively?
  • How to identify items without getting killed
  • How can I tell if a corpse is safe to eat?
  • How can I kill puppies without consequences?
  • How do you safely pray to your god?
  • Mazes of Menace - a good map?
  • Overburdened Knight early in the game, how to carry more?
  • How can I kill puppies without consequences?
  • How do I hoard items effectively?
  • Shops, theft, and your pet(s)
  • When should I be taking the time to identify items, and which items should I not bother with?

    Sounds like a case of teleportitis. You can get this effect in a number of ways. If you’re not wearing a ring of teleportation, then it’s probably because you ate the corpse of a teleporting creature like a leprechaun.

    As ire_and_curses says, it is teleportitis, but it does wear off after a while. The greatest blessings are bank robbery and shop-lifting!
