The time is 60 AD. The Roman Empire is at the height of its power,
under the rule of the cruel Emperor Nero. The isle of Britannia
is wracked by rebellion against its Roman masters, as
the Celtic tribes ransack city after city.
In the depths of the wilderness, the village of Nethergate, forgotten
and ignored, is hatching a conspiracy. They will conspire with the
faery kingdoms, the dark, secret, wild powers, to destroy their
Roman conquerors. Magic is dying, but there is enough of it left
to put an end the the Empire. Your job is to help them.
your job is to stop them.
In Nethergate, the newest role-playing game from Spiderweb Software,
the makers of the award-winning Exile series, you can play as either
the Romans or the Celts, seeing both sides of this epic battle.
The quests, puzzles, and the way the characters react to you will
be completely different. It's like two games in one!
No matter which side you play, Nethergate has beautiful 3-D graphics,
an elegant interface, a huge world, based on historical research,
and dozens of cunning towns, fortresses, and dungeons. Nethergate
has dozens of characters and over 150,000 words of plotting and
dialogue, designed to immerse you in a strange, magical, lost world.
