is the first fantasy role-playing game in the Exile trilogy, which takes place in the strange subterranean world of Exile. Exile is populated by the misfits and malcontents of the surface world, people who were forever banished to the underworld for being too strange, or too antisocial, or having too many incorrect opinions. This is the fate you have just suffered, and it is up to you what to do from here. Will you try to escape the strange prison of Exile? Will you try to gain power and save your fellow exiles from the monsters that threaten them? Or will you try to gain revenge on the Empire that cast you below?
Exile features a huge, highly detailed world with many quests, scads of characters to interact with, and almost 80 towns and dungeons, scattered over an enormous world. Exile has several overall game quests, of varying difficulty, each the size of a full game. If one doesn't appeal to you, you can try another, or all of them. Exile also has a simple skill-based character system that lets you design characters who do exactly what you want them to do (no more character classes). It also features intricate graphics and sound, full auto-mapping, many puzzles, and of course, hordes of evil nasties just waiting to be robbed and butchered.
