Spiderweb
Software Announces Avernum 5, A New Fantasy Role-Playing Game for Windows

Spiderweb Software, Inc. announced today the
release of Avernum 5 for Windows, the latest game in the award-winning Avernum
series. Avernum 5 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 first.
