    Just a little more loving of <a href="http://www.spidweb.com">Spiderweb Software</a>. Here's a bit of it:
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote><b>11.) Timed events play a big part in Avernum 3, such as the razing of towns by monsters if you don't get to their nests in time, and quest situations that only occur after certain dates. Can you explain why Avernum 3 does this? Is making a dynamically changing world more difficult versus the added benefit of demonstrating urgency of situations? Do you feel this worked well for Avernum 3?</b>
    <br>
    <br>
    It's the thing I love most about the game. I love the size, the depth, the amount of stuff in it. And I love the way you can return to a town and find half of it smashed in.
    <br>
    <br>
    It was a lot of work. But I think it was just cool.</blockquote>
    <br>

    And the link to <a href="http://www.rpgcodex.com/content.php?id=11">the interview</a> itself.

    Spiderweb RPGs

    I really enjoy the Spiderweb role-playing games. I especially like Blades of Exile (and expect to like Blades of Avernum) for it's replyability due to player-made add-ons.

    Nethergate is also one of my favorites, although I have only played the Celts (not the Romans) so far.

    Although the graphics in some of the games may seem primitive by the standards of the best-selling RPGs, the storylines are captivating, and the ability to create, develop, and therefore get totally wrapped up in your characters is addictive.

    Hah, I just recently bought Avernum 1 - 3 on CD, so I think I paid for Jeff's groceries for last week. ;)

    I've been preaching the goodness of spidweb games everywhere I go on the web for a couple of years now (mostly gamedev/programming forums). I hope i've inspired a few people to give them a try at least.

    Here are more interviews with Jeff than your necrophilic desires can likely handle.
