The Bridge of Catzad-Dum is a text adventure in the Eamon series, written by Nathan Segerlind[1][2] and released in September 1988. The adventure parodies chapters 4 and 5 of Book 2 from The Fellowship of the Ring, and is largely adapted from the first story in The Adventures of Samurai Cat, a collection of humorous short stories written by Mark E. Rogers.[1] [2] In the adventure you journey to Catzad-Dum to avenge the death of your master.[2]

The title is a parody of "The Bridge of Khazad-dûm" and the dwarves and orcs of the original story are replaced by cats and "porks".
