  Magen David Adom
The first seeds of Magen David Adom in Israel were planted at a meeting held in Philadelphia in October 1918, attended by David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir and Henrietta Szold.
A Magen David Adom organization was organized to aid both the Jewish Legion and the settlers in Palestine.
Magen David Adom was officially chartered as a result of the murderous riots of 1929, when farm and urban settlements - totaling some 170,000 of the country's Jewish population - were attacked by the Arab population, and were found to be lacking in even the most elementary first aid services.

 Magen David Adom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Magen David Adom is Israel's only official emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank service.
The Magen David Adom organisation was formed in 1930 as a volunteer outfit with a single branch in Tel Aviv.
Since its creation, Magen David Adom has been denied membership in the International Red Cross (IRC) since it refused to replace its red Star of David emblem with a red cross.

Magen David Adom in Israel - the Red Star of David - is recognized by the State of Israel as its only first aid and disaster relief organization which operates according to the principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Magen David Adom (MDA) was officially chartered and recognized as an emergency lifesaving service as a result of the murderous riots of 1929, when Jewish farm and urban settlements were attacked by the Arab population, and were found to be lacking in even the most elementary first aid services.
One of Magen David Adom’s foremost tasks is the maintenance of modern and effective blood services for the country, a duty promulgated in the Magen David Adom Law enacted by the Knesset in 1960.

 ADOM
ADOM has it's own calendar and zodiac, and hence being born under each star sign has different effects.
Instead of the usual six attributes that your character is determined by, ADOM has Strength, Learning, Willpower, Dexterity, Toughness, Charisma, Appearance, Mana and Perception.
Everything is hard coded into the ADOM executable, so any changes that a user would wish to make would have to be performed on the source code, and then the game would have to be recompiled.

 ADOM Interview
However, among the numerous roguelike games freely available on the Internet are a few very brilliant gems, among them Ancient Domains of Mystery, which is arguably one of the best dungeon crawls ever created, good enough to put recent commercial releases, such as Diablo, to shame.
I'm still striving to get ADOM up to that level, although there is still a long way to go.
I was absolutely thrilled when ADOM became #1 on that chart and couldn't believe that anything could top that achievement...

ADOM is an episodic regional air-quality model that predicts hourly concentration and deposition fields.
Since ADOM was not designed or intended to be used for long-term simulations, the episode aggregation technique as described in Environment Canada (1997) has been used to obtain estimates of annual fields from a set of ADOM simulations spanning a period of less than a year.
ADOM performance has undergone extensive evaluation, both operational and diagnostic, and has been discussed in a number of publications, including Macdonald et al.

 ADOM - Ancient Domains Of Mystery (Third Review)
ADOM appeals to me more because it involves less of the fiddling around with tedious inventories and statistics, letting you get on with the questing and killing.
Most deaths do tend to be some sort of learning experience, like a hint that a particular type of creature is something you really shouldn't eat, or that you really shouldn't be in a particular dungeon this early in your career, or that you really shouldn't hang around for long in a particular place.
But having said that his time is obviously finite and the number of e-mails he receives about ADOM is rather huge, so the best avenues of support are usually sources other than the author.

Before the encounter with the fruit, Adom was a pure intellect, free from external influence and natural inclination.
Adom would become entirely natural, and would have to die a natural death.
If Adom were to eat from the fruit, he would be overpowered by nature; natural entities cannot live forever.

 Nethack vs ADOM
ADOM has many more peaceful NPCs, some of whom are just flavour and don't do much, others of whom send you on quests or teach you skills.
ADOM offers a much wider choice of characters (ten races and twenty classes), and they are better differentiated than in Nethack, where most late-game characters can survive by simply whacking everything to death.
In ADOM, your alignment is a measure of where you fall on the spectrum from extremely lawful to extremely chaotic.
