Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Computer Game

Welcome to the Underdark...

As darkness falls, the dark elves rise
to serve their spider Queen,
The world below is the Underdark -
a blinding darkness to behold.
If you dare upon the drow elves' lair,
their dark hearts and swords will fly.
Like spiders in their webs they wait,
for you, alas, are simply bait.

There is a world beneath the world humans know - a vast, lawless land under the realms that see the sun. It is a perilous land of dark caverns, crevices, and labyrinths: the realm below, the vast and mysterious Underdark. No surface dweller has seen all its depths and corners. Beasts that no surface dweller yet knows of lurk in its shadowy depths. Surviving explorers say the known dangers are bad enough.

To the unwary traveler in the Underdark, a city may seem a refuge from the creeping doom in the darkness. It is, after all, bustling with life - with food, tools, and perhaps aid. Or, perhaps not.

Menzoberranzan is a place of evil within a infinite night. A city of carved and spired stone castles, their smooth, unjointed, unbroken expanses are lit with the soft, tinted flows of permanent faerie fires. There live the dark elves, drow as they name themselves, who plot against each other to praise Lolth, the Spider Queen.

Do you dare enter their realm? If so, danger and excitement beyond your wildest nightmares are yours as your characters delve into the murky Underdark. Riches and glory await, as well as horrible creature and danger. You know your party can face them and, perhaps, even beat them in the light of day, but how will they fare in the darkness?

Requirements:

386/40 MHz IBM DX PC, 4 MB RAM, MS-DOS 5.06, 6.0, 6.2x, DR DOS 6.0, An Uncompressed Hard Drive with 15 MB free, VGA graphics card with a Color VGA Monitor, A double-speed CD-ROM drive, 300 KB data transfer rate, 320 ms access time, continuous read, MSCDEX 2.1 or greater, a 100% Microsoft (or Logitech) compatible Mouse, Microsoft Mouse driver version 8.00+ or Logitech Mouse driver 6.00+ (The Cyberman is supported but optional).

DOS games do not work on Windows XP, of course, and we do not offer technical support for DOS games running on Windows XP. However, if you really want to run games like this on your fast new Windows XP machine you should try using DOSBox. The DOSBox OpenSource DOS emulator is an excellent piece of work which we can highly recommend. It isn't possible for us to guarantee that it will work well for you, however, especially on newer graphic-intensive DOS games. On older DOS games, like Civilization, for example, it runs well on any machine capable of running Windows XP.

To start with, you will need to download the Win32 Installer using this link: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/download.php?main=1

The README file included with DOSBox will tell you what you need to know. If you find it a bit too technical, just click on The Newbie's Pictoral Guide to DOSBox on the following page: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewforum.php?f=39

We find that it is best to create a separate shortcut for each DOSBox game. That makes starting the game easier and also makes full screen mode easier to deal with.
