3.4. It's in good shape and it's stable. 3.5 isn't stable yet.

So thats my deal. True story. Cheers folks!
I found Moria on a Linux CD around 1995 and played it for a while. Later I was looking for similar games and found Angband. Since then I've been sticking to Angband, but Moria still is great in my memory.

I have just found umoria. it's tough getting started, no-targeting, haggling, no color. who needs to change angband settings when you can just play moria.


umm... any recent ladders. or am I going to be looking at 20 yr old entries?

Have you tried NPPMoria, a port of Moria to a modern codebase? http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=6370

Thanks for trying it. I welcome any (constructive) feedback on NPPMoria you may have.

the problem i had was due to the old laptop i was using. i will get back to nppmoria after i finish some other games i have already started.

i was expecting to see dwarves as monsters. than again i have only gone as low as 1000 ft before my old laptop forced a stop to my gameplay.

I double-checked. There weren't any monster dwarves in UMoria. Although that sounds like something that may have been in some of the older versions of moria.

the expectation came from watching movie. according to movie, some dwarves tried to colonize moria before being massacred by trolls and such.

I don't remember that being in the book

Uh? Moria was a dwarf mine, but they dug too greedily, and too deep, and unleashed an imprisoned Balrog who destroyed the dwarfish presence.

Dunno about orcs and trolls at that time, but Frodo definitely took a spear to the torso (or something like that anyway) at Bailin's Tomb. He only survived due to Bilbo's mithril shirt preventing the point from penetrating. It sure wasn't a Balrog at the other end of that spear; dunno if it was an orc or a troll though.
