War of the Ring

Author: Sam Ruby
System: Apple II
Type: Text adventure series
Licensed: No

The War of the Ring series is interconnected with The Lord of the Rings series by the same author. It consists only of the following two games:

  1. Return to Moria (Eamon 129)
  2. Haradwaith (Eamon 130)

Actually, it is uncertain whether Haradwaith is part of the series since it is mentioned nowhere in the game's introduction. On the other hand, it does not seem to be part of The Lord of the Rings either.

It may seem somewhat strange to begin a series with a sequel, but this is what Sam Ruby has done. Return to Moria is the sequel to The Mines of Moria in The Lord of the Rings series.

The games take place at the same time as The Ring of Doom in The Lord of the Rings.
