Please add on if you can (I'd like to see notable variant announcements and discussions about game design and strategy, for example), and enjoy if you haven't seen them before. Most of the links below go to Google Groups individual post pages.
How strange - I was just reminiscing about Angband and thought I'd do a quick search, to find that there is still an active community for it - wow! 21 years since I sent out an email from the University of Warwick to announce its general release. Very glad to find out it is still being enjoyed today, I've just had a game myself for old times sake - it's funny how it comes back to you and how addictive it still is, despite it being about as basic as they come graphically.

Cheers all, Sean (Marsh).
