The gargoyle, g, is a monster in NetHack. It can hit rather hard and may result in many deaths for adventurers who fail to take it seriously.
And so it came to pass that while Man ruled on Earth, the
gargoyles waited, lurking, hidden from the light. Reborn
every 600 years in Man's reckoning of time, the gargoyles
joined battle against Man to gain dominion over the Earth.
In each coming, the gargoyles were nearly destroyed by Men
who flourished in greater numbers. Now it has been so many
hundreds of years that it seems the ancient statues and
paintings of gargoyles are just products of Man's
imagination. In this year, with Man's thoughts turned toward
the many ills he has brought among himself, Man has forgotten
his most ancient adversary, the gargoyles.
