 longtitle="A single-player, text-based, dungeon simulation." \
 description="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.\""                   \
