Because You Can’t Play Tabletop Adventure Games On The Subway

New post on Hardcore Droid about adventure RPG Avernum: Escape From the Pit. While I did have a little frustration with the UI (Get back here, magic users! I tapped to shoot the enemy, not run up and hug him!), I’m so happy that Al from Hardcore Droid introduced me to this game! Avernum blends D&D combat and mechanics with a great narrative, and it’s kind of amazing that stopped playing long enough to write about it.

The Avernum world is full of wonderful and zany things, from a hive of cheerful spiders all called Spider, to an entrepreneurial barkeep looking to open a hot springs spa. There are epic battles against the usual high fantasy cultists and drakes and the like, but there’s also a foreman looking for some cheap wine for his workers. It’s worth noting that Avermun women are soldiers (Wearing practical armor, even!), armorsmiths and mayors.
