Why follow your nose when you can find and heavily berate a Balrog with nasty words and then use his (or her? It? Best not to ask really) eternally (and rather angrily) burning flame as a source of light. As long, of course, you aren't burdened with enough armour to clothe Dol Amaroth.

Don't worry. Just follow the trail of enemies - they'd think you were heading for the exit and go there first. Or simply ask a friendly orc for directions (highly unrecommended).

I haven't visited Moria myself (been busy with the preparation for Skyrim, mainly the new heightfield) so can't comment on how big it is in 0.2.6, but I'm sure our Moria devs didn't make it small! Either way, in Skyrim-MERP it will definitely be very big, big enough to get lost in.

nah, but I really really really really hope that it's really gigantic :P I don't care if I'll get lost in it and never find my way out.

Sorta.

0.2.6 will be our last release for Oblivion, then the whole project ports to Skyrim. Right now, our team is kinda split in two, one part working on our last Oblivion release, the others are preparing for the release of Skyrim's Creation Kit which Bethesda claims will release this very month.

If Moria for this release wont even be 20% finished, will there at least be a proper exit door so we can attempt a fairly accurate walk through.

I'm pretty sure that you go from gate-to-gate, with 20% finished Captain probably meant that it's relatively(!) linear so far compared to what the final product would look like. According to lore, Moria is a very old huge underground city, with many levels and Deeps and countless halls. It's insane how huge and complicated Moria is supposed to be. Think about 30-40 vanilla Skrim dungeons in one. We hope can get close to that with the final product. Moria is like a sub-project inside MERP.

Woah what? We don't have ten mainquests! There are two storylines that serve that function: Ringbearer (male hobbits only) and White Council (any race and gender). We have a backstory and unique START planned for each race for White Council, but after that they converge with the rest of the story which is the same for all.

Out of interest can the player get to Durin's tower? where gandalf actually killed the balrog, top of the mountain, that place.

Of course. It will be dificult to reach though; the location to Durin's Stair is deep in the caverns of Khazad-Dum and it is dificult to navigate those parts of the mines ;)
