NAME

       moria - a dungeon game

SYNOPSIS

       moria [ -o ] [ -r ] [ -s ] [ -S ] [ -n ] [ -w ] [ savefile ]

DESCRIPTION

       Moria plays a dungeon game with you.  It lets you generate a character,
       lets you buy equipment, and lets you wander  in  a  fathomless  dungeon
       while  finding  treasure  and  being  attacked  by  monsters and fellow
       adventurers.  Typing ?  gives you a list of commands.

       The ultimate object of moria is to kill the Balrog, which dwells on the
       50th  level of the dungeon, 2,500 feet underground.  Most players never
       even reach the Balrog, and those that do seldom live to tell about it.

       For a more complete description of the  game,  read  the  document  The
       Dungeons of Moria.

       By  default,  moria  will  save  and  restore  games from a file called
       moria.save  in  your  home  directory.   If  the  environment  variable
       MORIA_SAV is defined, then moria will use that file name instead of the
       default.  If MORIA_SAV is not a complete path name, then  the  savefile
       will  be  created or restored from the current directory.  You can also
       explicitly specify a savefile on the command line.

       If you use the -n option, moria will create a new  game,  ignoring  any
       savefile which may already exist.  This works best when a savefile name
       is specified on the command line,  as  this  will  prevent  moria  from
       trying to overwrite the default savefile (if it exists) when you try to
       save your game.

       You move in various directions by pressing  the  numeric  keypad  keys,
       VMS-style.   If  you  specify  -r,  you  move  the  same  way you do in
       rogue(6).  You can also specify -o to force the VMS-style command  set.
       These  options will override defaults stored in the savefile.  If these
       options are given multiple times, only the last one will take effect.

       If you specify -s, moria prints all of the scores in the score file and
       exits.   On  a multiuser system, if you specify -S, moria prints prints
       only those scores belonging to you and then exits.

       If you specify -w, moria  will  start  up  in  wizard  mode.   You  can
       resurrect a dead character by using this option when starting the game.
       Resurrected characters are teleported to the town level and given  zero
       hitpoints.   Wizard  mode  is  intended for debugging the game, and for
       experimenting with new features.  Any other use is considered cheating.
       Games played with wizard mode are not scored.
