If you like to play games with friends and love Lord of The Rings, you might want to check out Tales of Middle Earth. T.o.M.E. is a roguelike dungeon exploration game based on JRR Tolkien’s works.
TOME is based on the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and tries very hard to stay true to Tolkien’s world while making the game balanced and playable.
The game is a character based dungeon similar in style to Dungeons and Dragons, but with appropriate characters, artifacts, monsters and skills. If you are looking for a lot of flash and sizzle, this game is NOT for you. But if you wax nostalgic for games of the past where a good story, a good imagination and interaction with other players are key, you’ll get a kick out of this game.
You can either download a single user version and play solo (Windows, DOS, Amiga, and Mac versions available) or download the multi-user client and play online at TOMENet.net (Windows only at this time).
And since we all crave interaction with other players, there is a nicely trafficked message forum where you can post questions, get tips and spoilers, and chat.
