An unofficial version of The Dungeons of Moria version 5.5. It is almost identical to that game, but takes place in Morgul where the player has to kill the nine Nazgūl in order to delay the attack on Minas Tirith. The author is very concerned with the poor realism of allowing humans to become mages (compare Tolkien's rare descriptions of humans using magic) but does not bother to explain why hobbits and half-elves are shop-keepers in down-town Minas Morgul.
Personal evaluation: Like The Dungeons of Moria, the game is difficult and challenging, but I do not give much for the author's attempts to "Tolkienize" the game. Better play the original or the much improved Angband.
