An Epic Fantasy Role-Playing Game for Windows and Macintosh
is a prison. It is an enormous warren of tunnels and caverns, far
below the surface world. You were banished there by the cruel Empire,
to spend the rest of your life in the underworld. At first, it seemed
like you and your many fellow prisoners might be able to form a
nation and live in peace, far from the sun.
Then a group of adventurers from Avernum assassinated Hawthorne,
the emperor of the Empire. Now the forces of the Empire are rampaging
through your underground home, killing everyone they find. As things
stand, the nation of Avernum, and all in it, are doomed.
But then you, lowly soldiers stationed at the most remote of forts,
get a chance to change things. A series of unexpected events gives
you the chance to explore unimagined realms, meet strange alien
creatures, and maybe, with luck and cunning, save your people from
Avernum. It's a terrible place. But it's all you have.

beautiful 3-D, 16-bit graphics, including drawings by well-known
fantasy illustrator, Phil Foglio, a massive storyline with three
different game-winning quests (complete one or two of them, or even
