Yeah, adom was cool.

There are some nice alternatives though, e.g. I like crawl a lot, and
omega ("omega-rpg" in debian) has a similar outdoor feel to adom
(indeed, _very_ similar... I wonder if adom's outdoor play was based on

There seems to be a flourishing scene making roguelikes these days
though, so the future seems bright.  [The "7 day roguelike" contest seems
to really have inspired a lot of people!]

The one thing that drives me nuts though -- modern roguelikes which
only support movement via the arrow/numpad keys!  Not only are my
fingers hardwired to the traditional rogue keys (hjkl etc), but I don't
have a numpad...  [adom was nice because it supported user key
remapping, so even though it was a pain, I could solve it.]
