Avernum 5 is an epic fantasy role-playing adventure. It is set in the world
of Avernum, an enormous series of caves far under the surface of the world.
Explore this enormous, alien environment, meet multitudes of interesting
characters, and rampage through many unique dungeons and hostile cities.
The surface world is ruled by the Empire. Its power is absolute. Its control
is unchallenged. And, as a soldier of the Empire, you have a good,
comfortable life ahead of you. But then a rebel named Dorikas tried to
assassinate the Empress, and everything went wrong for you.
The villain fled somewhere into Avernum, an underworld nation of eccentrics,
misfits, and barely civilized monsters, most of whom hate the Empire. And
that is where you are going. You must find Dorikas, while dealing with
spies, betrayal, and assassins at every turn.
The enemy is waiting for you. You will only survive his attention with the
help of these strange cave dwellers. If, of course, they don't kill you
