Added a basic Linux/glibc2 build patch, since Debian's Umoria port (which is what I relied on to build previous versions) has been orphaned and looks set to go away once Debian 4.0 is released.

After I gained some fame as the Umoria author, I did manage to get a copy of of the UltraRogue sources, but by then it was too late, and I wasn't sure if I had a legal copy of the sources, so I never did anything with them.
One of my favorite moments from my Umoria years is when I got mail from one of the authors of rogue.
He confirmed that he was one of the rogue authors, and that he was a fan of Umoria.

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.
.PP The ultimate object of.I umoria is to kill the Balrog, which dwells on the 50th level of the dungeon, 2,500 feet underground.
This works best when a savefile name is specified on the command line, as this will prevent.I umoria from trying to overwrite the default savefile (if it exists) when you try to save your game.

 View from the Corner - Lost in the Pits of Angband
I played uMoria on a VAX/VMS system at school, connected with a 300 baud modem (back when 1 baud=1 bps and such things were considered state of the art) and a 40-col screen running on an Atari 8-bit computer.
The program was actually compiled and installed by an upperclassman, very hush hush and in total violation of several rules, and the exact location and how to access it was doled out on a need to know basis.
Years later, I discovered that uMoria was available for my Atari ST, which was great because I didn't need a modem and to tie up a phone line to play for hours on end.

This is UMoria 5.5.2, compiled for IBM-PC's (MS-DOS/WINxx) using DJGPP v2.01 and PDCurses v2.2 (both available on your local SimTel FTP mirror) DJGPP is a 32-bit, protected-mode compiler, which means that programs compiled under it require an 80386 or higher to run.
Also, the executable file for the DJGPP version of UMoria is just over 400kb, so you will not be able to fit it on a 360kb 5.25" floppy disk (not that anyone has those anymore =).
Any suspected bugs in UMoria should be reported to the maintainer, David Grabiner, Grabiner@math.lsa.umich.edu (please note the change of address).

(Sometimes referred to as VMS Moria 4.8.) Umoria version 4.83 (14th May, 1987 James E. Wilson) ==================================================== - This version was developed by Jim Wilson at UC Berkeley.
One of the most significant ports was the "PC Angband 1.4" port, for old DOS machines, which added color and various other significant changes, only some of which ever made it back into the official source.
Some of the changes during this period were based on suggestions from the "net", and from various related games, including "UMoria 5.5", "PC Angband 1.4", and "FAngband".

 Wuphon's Reach: 2003-09-21
UMoria is an old text-mode adventure game like Rogue / Hack / Nethack where you move your character (literally a character in the shape of '@'!) around the screen and delve into the dungeon of Moria to go after the Balrog.
However, since UMoria has not been updated in forever, I started looking around to see if it had been updated and where I could download the newer version...
There's actually two dozen or so active variants of Angband (it's open-source) - but since I wanted a simple update to UMoria, I went after plain vanilla Angband (also known as v3.03).

Then Charles Swiger (cs4w+@andrew.cmu.edu) took over, sometime in late 1993, cleaning up the code, fixing a lot of bugs, and bringing together various patches from various people, resulting in several versions of Angband, starting with Angband 2.5.1 (?), and leading up to the release of Angband 2.6.1 (and Angband 2.6.2) in late 1994.
Angband 2.6.1 was primarily targetted towards Unix/NeXT machines, and it required the use of the low level "curses" commands for all screen manipulation and keypress interaction.

Game documentation is found in PXMoria1.0d.sea.hqx Note1: If you do not play a druid character, these versions are virtually identical to plain UMoria 5.5.
Except where the character is a druid, savefiles are compatible with plain UMoria 5.5.
Druid savefiles should be compatible with other druid versions, but this has not been tested.

Then came "Umoria" (Unix Moria), by James E. Wilson (1989).
They wanted to expand the game, keeping or even strengthening the grounding in Tolkien lore, while adding more monsters and items, including unique monsters and artifact items, plus activation, pseudo-sensing, level feelings, and special dungeon rooms.
Some of the changes during this period were based on suggestions from the "net", PC Angband 1.40, UMoria 5.5, and some of the Angband "variations", such as FAngband.

 Freeing an old game
The unfortunate thing about UMoria is that it was released under a non-free software license, and the software continues to be non-free today.
A boilerplate license declaration was sent to every contributor, and was augmented with the date, and a description of their contribution to UMoria.
I hereby release my contributions to UMoria (which includes ) under the terms of the GNU General Public License (“GPL”) (version 2).
