Welcome to the Underdark...

If you dare upon the drow elves' lair,
their dark hearts and

Like spiders in their webs they wait,

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?

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:
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:
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.
