An Epic Fantasy Role-Playing Saga for Windows, Macintosh and iPad

Welcome to Avernum! Join the multitudes who have battled their way through this hit series of fantasy role-playing adventures. Guide the oppressed Avernites, trapped in their prison far underground, as they struggle for survival, escape, and freedom.

The surface is ruled by the Empire, which controls everything with an iron fist. All magic is restricted. Fantastic creatures like dragons and giants are killed on sight. And all who don't fit in, the misfits, the rebels, those with incorrect opinions, are sent to Avernum, an enormous underground prison. There, they live out the rest of their lives in the cold and dark.

The adventures tell the story of the Avernites: how they struggled to form a nation, throw off the yoke of the Empire, and return to the surface world.
