Blades of Avernum Spiderweb Software 2004

This is a non-canon installment in the Avernum series. It comes with four pre-installed scenarios, three of which are only available after game purchase. The Valley of Dying: Explore the world of magic and sorcery and find the secret to the mysterious plague. A Small Rebellion: A group of rebels formed against the empire, will you fight them or join them? The Za-Khazi Run: Quest your way through a dangerous river and try to save your allies on the other side before time runs out. Diplomacy With the Dead: Help a small city fight a powerful vampire. Its most notable feature is a free scenario creation kit that can be downloaded and used to make scenarios that can be distributed to other players. It has come under fire for being "too complex" in comparison to Blades of Exile, its predecessor, which used a very simple instruction list instead of a script system. On the other hand, it has also been praised for allowing many new possibilities using said script system, which couldn't be achieved with the Blades of Exile system. Spiderweb Software has released the source code for the editor and allows others to make enhanced versions and add-ons, which a number of players have done. The most notable adaptation of the editor is a 3D editor, which allows the user to view and edit a project using axonometric in-game view.
