+Description: single-player text-based roguelike dungeon simulation game
+ Tome, short for Troubles of Middle Earth, is a single-player,
+ text-based, dungeon simulation derived from the game angband, which
+ in turn is derived from the older game Moria, which was in turn based
+ on Rogue. It is often described as a "roguelike" game because the
+ look and feel of the game is still quite similar to Rogue.
+ .
+ In tome, the player may choose from a number of races and classes
+ when creating a character, and then "run" that character over a
+ period of days, weeks, even months, attempting to win the game by
+ defeating Morgoth, who lurks somewhere in the depths of the dungeon.
+ .
+ The ultimate goal of the game is to develop a character strong enough
+ to defeat Morgoth, who resides on dungeon level 100. Upon doing so,
+ you will receive the exalted status of "winner" and your character may
+ retire.
+ .
+ The first main difference from Angband a new player to ToME will need
+ to be aware of is that it has implemented a skills based system where
+ instead of the adventurer automatically improving in their abilities
+ as they become more experienced, they get 5 skill points to spend on
+ their character's abilities and can therefore customise what type of
+ character they play. See the skills help file for details
+ .
+ The second major difference is that the main dungeon from Angband has
+ been split into 4 "dungeons", each of which cover a different
+ portion of the dungeon's levels. Note that not all of the places are
+ actually "dungeons" - some are caves, forests, etc.
+ .
+ The third main difference between Vanilla Angband and ToME is the
+ difference in character classes and races, as well as a very
+ different magic system. ToME also offers the player the ability to
+ undertake a series of quests. It is not required for any adventurer
+ to undertake the fixed quests, but they can result in some nice
+ rewards.
+ .
+ Morgoth was 'the Dark Enemy of Middle-Earth' during its First Age. He
+ was banished by the Valar (offspring of Eru, "god" of J.R.R.
+ Tolkien's world) at the end of the First Age and thus never appears
+ in The Lord of the Rings, set during the Third Age. Sauron, who does
+ figure into those tales, was the most powerful of his servants. Read
+ Tolkien's 'The Silmarillion' for more on the legends of Middle-Earth.
+ Angband is a reference to Morgoth's "prison of iron."
