GameSpy writes: "It is the original dungeon crawl: The Black Pit that inspired a million Dungeons & Dragons adventure modules and acted as the template for every party that ever trudged into the depths of an underground world, torches at the ready. It is Moria and while the perilous journey of Frodo and his friends through the ruins of Khazad-dum takes up only a small portion of The Fellowship of the Ring, Tolkien's tantalizing glimpse of forgotten chambers and mysterious caverns where nameless horrors and fabulous treasures wait has fired imaginations ever since.
We'd come to a place much less horrible but nearly as dark, a demonstration room with Executive Producer Jeffrey Steefel and Lead Producer Cardell Kerr for a first glimpse at Mines of Moria, the first expansion pack for The Lord of the Rings Online."
