Intense character development: That's what Sangband's all about. You delve deeper and deeper into the Pits of Angband, gathering the skills and equipment and learning the battle wisdom needed to seize the Iron Crown of Morgoth. Dreadful opponents bar your path at every stage; kobold darts and trollish boulders, basilisk stares and dragon-fire, warrior steel and magician's cunning - you must defeat or dodge it all!

There are many ways to die. There are as many ways to win. The choices you make among skills, the plunder from vaults and fallen foes, the objects you forge, your growing tactical prowess - all will shape your adventure. Will you take the Oath of Iron to learn the most powerful warrior arts? Will you stand staunch for the Light - or choose the way of blood and necromancy? A Shadow Paladin, a Magic Engineer, a Loresmith, a Skirmisher - all can topple the Dark Lord from his dark throne.

A clean, unpretentious interface enhances your experience; powerful options let you configure the game as you please. There are six different display modes ranging from pure ASCII to 32x32 graphics, plus sound, music, mouse support, and abundant on-line help.

This variant has been devised and up to 2007 maintained by Leon Marrick.
