After trying a lot of roguelikes, I decided I wanted to try the "trope namer": Rogue itself.

Pretty soon, however, I found a problem.

...where are the stairs up and down?

    Rogue, unlike later games it inspired, has only a single stairway (%) on each floor. Until you find the amulet, all stairways are down stairways. Afterward, all stairways are up stairways. See the note on stairs here. – sjohnston Jan 26 '11 at 2:11

I believe the % sign is the stairs, but I could be wrong, as the version of Rogue I played used a green symbol with three bars as the stairs. Stand on top of the % sign and press less than (<). That should take you down a level.
