Hello, I am starting up a tabletop RPG campaign set in the Avernum universe and I was wondering if there were any websites featuring comprehensive Avernum/Exile history or lore. If someone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

This is as comprehensive as it gets.

Yeah, the Encyclopaedia Ermarian is by far your best resource. There are a few articles that aren't directly based on Jeff Vogel's games and scenarios, but the majority is.

I remembered reading about one attempt to create an Avernum d20. It didn't get far, but I tried searching for it anyway. To my surprise, I found this. It's... huge. If your campaign's going to use d20, take a look, if even just for ideas.

(Bump.)

I've found the site I was thinking of at first. It's shorter, and strongly derived from D&D.

There's also an effort here. It never got anywhere as far as I can recall, and I can't find the main site (if it still exists), but it's something.

—Alorael, who now misses the amalgamation of Avernum, Arcana Unearthed, and homebrew that was somewhere on the web. It wasn't relevant at all, but it was neat.

Alorael, your link doesn't seem to work.

Only because I failed to copy and paste it right. It works now.

—Alorael, who doesn't think its not working would have been any great loss.
