Avernum is one of the great tales of indie gaming, an epic series of fantasy role-playing adventurers set in an enormous, subterranean nation. Avernum is a land underground, a subterranean nation full of rogues, misfits, and brigands, struggling for survival and wealth in the monster-infested darkness. Avernum 5 is the second chapter in the Great Trials Trilogy, three games that tell the tale of this land’s struggles in the face of powerful forces that seek to destroy it.

Avernum 5 has a fascinating storyline, full of betrayal, mystery, and unexpected turns. Explore a gigantic world, with hundreds of quests, multitudes of side dungeons, and many hours of adventure. The game features clever enemies and dozens of interesting scripted encounters. Learn over 50 spells and battle disciplines. Hunt for hundreds of magical items, or find the materials to craft new, unique equipment.

No. For The thousandth time I say I have no spare. No one here has a spare. And even if I had a spare anvil, which never happened, I wouldn't have sent them to you, "the answer from Archimedes Solberg to those who need a spare anvil for experiments on creating a spell with an anvil that falls on someone's head. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1624288418 fans of Jeff Vogel question "but should I play?" should not arise. For those who, after passing the fourth part, doubt whether it is worth spending time on the fifth, I can say: it is worth! Set Aside the series for a month or two, and then return. You will be greeted by the same familiar world Avernum, but with a number of nice differences, both story and gameplay: The Plot from the point of view of the soldiers of the Empire (the opposite Avernumians from the previous parts); Scene selection side throughout the game; In many times more side quest lines with different variants of events development; More malicious bosses and trials; Inventory now does not affect the portable weight; There were boats; Martial disciplines (a variant of magic for Warriors); ALWAYS GET JOBS FROM JOB BOARDS AS YOUR FIRST ACTIVITY WHEN YOU REACH A NEW AREA! If you don't you may end up with uncompleted quests... [gamefaqs.gamespot.com] https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1624288032

Why rats? Never in life has seen more graceful creatures. Such simplicity, and such endurance and efficiency! Your mindless prejudices have taken a look from the supreme creation of nature! After the newfaces with aggressive shifts and shadows terrorizing the city, the Empire has a new problem. It is that some man tried to kill the empress, and the highest authorities are sure that he will try to do it again. It All boils down to the fact that the offender disappeared in Avernuma and you-the imperial soldiers-need to find him. The game Itself is a classic RPG, where we are given the opportunity to make a group of 4 travelers. We choose them Modelka, name and necessary skills (on this Part I advise to spend as much time as possible). With the help of the newly created eitor'a you can create a full-fledged copy of your characters from the 4th part (the main level of complexity increase). And now Let's analyze the pros and cons of the game: Cons: I do not mind this kind of graphics, if it is adapted to wide screens, and there is no support. Bored with new sprites. There are inconsistencies in the plot. The Disbalance. Pros: The same big and elaborate world. Maximum approximation to the close soul of the table RPG. There is a warming soul connection with the past parts. (Like already familiar characters and mention of the past exploits) Varied the battle for non-mages, adding combat techniques. The Interface has become more and more convenient. Sprites did not touch, but much better traced effects. My Total: 8/10 The Game is strictly for the lover, and if you are a lover, then take only in the pack with the 4th and 6th parts. If you still take on this game, I advise you to play, fully immersed in this mix, because it is the strongest part of the game. After a long passage on the pirate, I had such a good feeling for the soul, as after reading a good book.
