Spiderweb Software announces the release of Blades of Avernum, their new fantasy role-playing system for the Macintosh. Blades of Avernum comes with several large, exciting adventures:
In A Small Rebellion, you are sent to infiltrate and destroy a band of rebels against the Empire. The question: will you fight them, or join them? In The Valley of Dying Things, you delve deep into an enormous, abandoned school of magic, looking for the secret to a deadly plague.
In The Za-Khazi Run, you rocket down a subterranean river, racing against time to reinforce a besieged fort. First, though, you must outwit the many powerful, bizarre creatures living along the route. And in Diplomacy With the Dead, you have to help a remote city deal with the powerful vampire who lives just outside town. This turns out to be much more complicated than it sounds.
And, when you have won these adventures, the promise of more free fun on the net means that your journey need never end. Anyone can use Blades of Avernum's editor to make fascinating adventures with cunning characters. Deal with monsters that work together and send out patrols to hunt you. Fight deadly bosses that summon aid, flee when they're outmatched, and surprise you with all sorts of nasty tricks.
Blades of Avernum is $25, or $32 with a hint book. Experience with other Avernum games is completely unnecessary. System requirements: PC Running Windows 98 or later, 30 MB free RAM, 40 MB hard drive space, 800x600 screen resolution with 16 bit color.
