Incredibly Nemoroth has not been Commented for 5 years. It was so popular in year 2002 that there were requests to rerun it on Halloween. The one Comment immediately here gives a full game score of Nemoroth. It is not so easy to find, or re-create, the move of the Basilisk and the Ghast and the Mummy, and this is the only information page on them, but they are all described or implicit within, or we can consult John Lawson. RBetza' tale also leads into full game score, and over-all he is always the most conscientious in doing so, including full or partial games by moves in up to half his write-ups 1996-2003.
