Nethack sometimes saves the level on which you die (including your stuff, what killed you, and your ghost) in a "bones file". These files get loaded into later games. If you're the only player on your system, you'll only get bones files you created yourself. With Hearse, you can automatically exchange bones files with other Nethack players. When run, it uploads any new bones files it finds on your system, then downloads any bones files the server feels like giving it.
