The Amulet of Yendor is the prize whose retrieval is the main objective of the game. The original Rogue died in the quest for it, and now it is in the possession of the Balrog.

The Amulet of Yendor is described by the game as a Levitation Amulet, and as such it allows you to jump and traverse platforms without ladders. It also grants excellent defensive qualities. Its name is a reference to the Amulet of Yendor from many original roguelikes such as Rogue and NetHack. The name Yendor is the word Rodney backwards, and thus Rodney is assumed to be the name of the original rogue. See the Armor page for more stats about the Amulet.
